As reported by Polygon.com, violinist Taylor Davis has recently released a stunning video of herself performing Song of Time and Song of Storms from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. The video is very unique, showing Davis’ dramatic performance in a forest setting whilst dressed as Shiek. The two songs are featured on her “Melodies of Hyrule: Music From The Legend of Zelda” album, which also contains a vast plethora of other Zelda songs. The album can be found here as a pay what you want purchase; definitely a great holiday gift for a Zelda aficionado, or yourself!
As we all know, A Link Between Worlds draws most of its layout and design from the classic A Link to the Past. However, we also know that there are quite a few huge differences that set the two games apart. As told by God is a Geek writer Adam Cook, The BitBlock has given us this awesome video comparing the two games side by side. It is very striking how similar the games really are! Places like Hyrule Castle and Kakariko Village are almost identical, but some other hot spots got a bit of a makeover. It can be seen that the Sanctuary has an additional room, and The Lost Woods, while almost an exact replica of the A Link to the Past version, is not covered in a blanket of fog.
So take a look here at the video and let us know what you think! Does this make you more excited to pick up your copy of A Link Between Worlds next Friday?
A new video recently popped up on the eShop showing Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma running through the streets of New York, fleeing from Nintendo of America employees. At one point, he decides to use Link’s new ability to turn into a drawing and escape.
The folks over at nintendoeverything.com uploaded it to their Youtube channel for all of us to see.
Just this Halloween, Nintendo posted a brand new gameplay trailer for A Link Between Worlds. In it, we are shown some interesting mechanics never before seen in the Zelda series, as well as some equally interesting familiar aspects.
Be warned, as the video contains significant gameplay spoilers.
One of the most memorable areas of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was Windfall Island. This was the place where you first met Tingle, obtained the Picto Box, and engaged in a plethora of side quests that are both fun and vital to the game’s completion. Today, Nintendo uploaded a video depicting the construction of a beautiful sandcastle modeled after the memorable island. Take a look for yourself here and leave your thoughts in the comment section below!
Previously, I reported on a leaked GameStop ad that seemed to indicate that the A Link Between Worlds 3DS XL bundle, containing a special gold 3DS XL, would be coming to North America in addition to its already confirmed European release. Well, with a video posted by Nintendo on the 29th of this month, we can officially verify that North America will be seeing this stylish system!
We can now say with certainty that the system will be releasing alongside A Link Between Worlds on the 22 of November. As the GameStop ad indicated, it will retail for $219.99. Thankfully, the system will not be a GameStop or black Friday exclusive, as many people feared.
New footage of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds was spotted at New York Comic Con today, according to IGN.com. The nearly ten minute video portrays Link climbing a dungeon with thirteen floors using his 2D “drawing” form and a hammer, bouncing form floor to floor and up to the dungeon boss. The boss appears to be nearly identical to Moldorm, the Tower of Hera boss in A Link to the Past. Also featured are some familiar enemies, such as the Stalfos and Mini-Moldorms.
In my opinion, the game looks gorgeous and is definitely brings some fresh new strategies into the Zelda series. It is definitely a great step forward in the series. Let us know in the comments section what you think about the footage!
On today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that A Link Between Worlds will stir up the formula in a brand new way. The player will be able to progress through most of the dungeons in any order up to a certain point. To facilitate this, there is a shop in the game owned by a character named Ravio. This shop sells items that, in other Zelda games, were only found in specific dungeons built around them. These items include the bow, boomerang, and hammer.
It was also revealed that the game will retail for $39.99.
Zelda Universe posted an article today about YouTuber RedTux TK’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf town. The town was modeled after Koholint Island from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. The town is modeled very closely to the classic game; it includes signs depicting Marin and the mysterious Owl, the Cemetery, and even RedTux TK’s villager is dressed as Link! Check out the video below!
This past weekend I was able to attend PAX Prime 2013 with a few friends of mine. Nintendo didn’t hold back and their presence there, and my friend Nathaniel and I were able to play The Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds, respectively. Below you can find our commentary and explanations from the representatives as we play through the Helmaroc King battle in WWHD and the demo version of the first dungeon in ALBW.
