A new Super Smash Bros. game is coming out for both Wii U and 3DS, and during Nintendo’s E3 Direct today, the first SSB4 trailer ever was shown to public. The trailer included two new playable characters, Villager and Mega Man, but what is most remarkable for Zelda fans is that the new Super Smash Bros. game will include at least three new stages from the Zelda series, The Spirit Train from Spirit Tracks, Gerudo Valley from Ocarina of Time, and Skyloft from Skyward Sword. Our beloved Link will make his fourth appearance in the Super Smash Bros. Series, with updated graphics, although we have still yet to see if his moveset will be any different.

Shortly after the E3 Nintendo Direct ended, Nintendo uploaded a Youtube trailer for “The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds”, formerly known as A Link to the Past 2 and Zelda 3DS! The trailer features a lot of new things, such as new locations, the Fire Rod, a Fairy Fountain and two Pieces of Heart. There was no information about when the game will be out, but I am really glad I can finally refer to this upcoming Zelda game with an official title!

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has in a recent interview confirmed that A Link to the Past’s 3DS sequel will feature a Dark World, just like its precursor. The upcoming 3DS title will also run at 60 frames per second, which is a huge step up from 30 frames per second, that all the 3D games so far have run on. Thirly, Aonuma has revealed that there will be a “big surprise” in the beginning of the game, that is sure to shock many Zelda fans:
“This new title will feature lots of things that are new to the series; right at the start of the game, there’s a big surprise that will shock players.”
Today it was globally announced on another installment of Nintendo Direct that The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages will be priced for their 3DS eShop release at $5.99. However, for the first three weeks of release, the games will be available for the special price of $4.99. Additionally, it was announced that the two games would be able to retain their link ability in some way, allowing the retention of the secret ending/final boss being unlocked when you link the games together.
We’ll bring you any more information as it comes, so be sure and stick to Zelda Eternity for all your Zelda news!
Zelda Sanctuary staff member Izagar has recently posted an interesting article about the upcoming A Link to the Past sequel. This article mainly discusses a current hot topic: the Master Sword’s return.
“Most veteran Zelda fans and even those introduced to a Link to the Past during the Gameboy Advance era remember this line at the end of the credits. With Ganon destroyed, peace reigned in Hyrule and the Master Sword fell into a deep sleep within the Lost Woods.”
Izagar cites the line “And the Master Sword sleeps again…FOREVER!”, and with the apparent return of the blade, many wonder about this quote.
The article shares the writer’s views on how the sword would awaken, as well as their views on a few other additions.

A brand new Zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS has just been announced, set to take place in the world of A Link to the Past and releasing Holiday 2013!
While not much is known at this point (such as the title, though it is tentatively being referred to by the community as A Link to the Past 2), it appears to draw heavily upon the artistic and design style from ALttP in addition to remaining mostly top-down, while still bring new 3D aspects to the game. One such aspect is an ability of Link that was shown that allows him to become a moving drawing on the wall, shifting the camera perspective and allowing you to go places you otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
That’s right! The producer of the Zelda series, Eiji Anouma, recently confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages will be released overseas on the Nintendo eShop. Although this had already been confirmed for Japan, we now know that the rest of the world will be getting the games too.
The two games will first be released individually at the end of February, and then together in a value pack during March. I personally think that this will be great for newer gamers of course, but also to previous fans of the Oracle Series. Sometimes I have wanted to bring both Spirit Tracks and one of the Oracle games with me on a trip, and that is tough without the backwards compatibility. This will make it a lot easier for me and many others, I am sure. Whether you have or haven’t played the games yet, I strongly advise you to pick them up! You can read more here if you wish. Have a great day, I’ll see you all next time!
That’s right! To those who missed the 3DS Ambassador Program deals on Zelda II, among other retro (and not so retro) games, you can fix your abhorrent mistake and download Zelda II to your very own 3DS system in the near future– Nintendo has announced they plan to release Zelda II onto the eShop. No specific date has been set, yet, as the press release stated the game to be released in the vague “Q4″ period, which basically means sometime this winter, but considering how Q4 is bearing down on us like a train to a damsel in distress tied up on the tracks, it will be here sooner than you think.
Along with this announcement, the press release also came with announcements pertaining to the releases of numerous other games, both on and off the eShop– including the likes of Luigi’s Mansion 2, which is slated to hit stores early 2013 (disappointingly missing an appropriate Halloween release, but still showing up relatively soon). For the full list, check out this post’s source, which can be found directly below this text scrawl.

See? I didn’t lie. Anyway, to the hardcore masochists among you who can’t get enough Zelda II, the budding retro-fetishists who need a taste of the tough-as-nails world of the NES, or to anyone who likes checkpoint starvation, cheap deaths, tough platforming, and any of the other staples of ridiculously hard old games (God help you if you do), rest assured that Zelda II is on its way to help!
And that’s it from me. Weegee, out.
To those of us who missed out on the 3DS Ambassador Program (myself included), good fortune has shined on us! Nintendo has recently announced that the NES classic “The Legend of Zelda” is coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop July 5th! As for the price, that has as of yet been unreleased, but we can expect it to, like other NES Virtual Console games, hover around the 5-6 dollar range.
For more details on the other games coming to the eShop this summer, check out Nintendo Direct and watch the “8bit Summer” trailer!
So what do you think? Is this awesome news? Is it something you’ve been waiting for since you got the 3DS after its price cut? Chime in below!
And that’s it from me. Weegee, out.
