There hasn’t been much news from Nintendo about Zelda, recently, however, there’s been a ton of news regarding the 3DS XL and WiiU.
– The 3DS XL will have a specialized circle pad pro. Whether or not it will come with it has yet to be confirmed. We can infer, though, that it will not, much like the original 3DS.
– No new 3DS models are planned for release in the near future.
– The speakers and screens are made of the same materials and have not had their hardware changed, despite the cosmetic differences.
– The 3DS XL does not feature any filter or aliasing effects for its screens.
– All the buttons and the circle pad are slightly bigger.
– Nintendo Network for the WiiU will be free.
– Multiple models of the WiiU, differentiating in which controllers they offer, could be available at launch.
That’s all for today, folks!
News is spreading that a few small time developers are looking into browser-based games for the 3DS. These projects are yielding results, but due to the nature of the slow web browser on the system these games are running at what seems like a cool 4-10 frames per second. In other words the screen scrolls at a snails pace. The first example appears to be a massively multiplayer online game, that seems to function properly but might never get an actual public release. However the second game seems to run faster and is a platformer that uses the Link sprite from Minish Cap. Hopefully those working on the project don’t get the order to cease and desist from Nintendo like the people behind iZelda did. Take a look at the video after the break, just don’t expect too much.
That’s right, the Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap will be given to Nintendo 3DS Ambassadors this Friday, along with 9 other GBA games! It’s been a long wait, but everyone who bought the 3DS early will now be able to enjoy The Minish Cap, one of my top 3 favorite Zelda games. It’s the only Zelda game that was released for the GBA with the exception of A Link to the Past being re-released with Four Swords on it. It’s definitely one of the more unique games in the series, and it managed to be that even though it’s not that long, because there’s quality to it, and tons of side-quests! I will play through it this Christmas if I get time, for sure. For all other ambassadors, enjoy the other games as well, and for those who’re not ambassadors, buy The Minish Cap anyway if you haven’t played it.
Yes, you heard right! Now it’s my time post some new content to Zelda Eternity! But, the thing is.. It takes forever to upload videos to YouTube, so only Chapter 1 of the video walkthrough is up at the moment. Chapter 2 is uploading now, and will probably take a while. In the meantime, I will continue to take more videos. So it’s not that bad, really. Anyway, you should check it out, and tell me what you think about it. So go and check it out!
UPDATE: Ok, Chapter 2 is up! So take a look
Cloud has updated the site a bit, and I was happy to make a post about it so here goes.
- Detailed controls on The Minish Cap and Link’s Awakening has been added.
- Cloud has started a video walkthrough on The Minish Cap, so he/I is happy to present to you the first part of the walkthrough, “The Picori Festival”.
This video walkthrough sure looks good.
