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.
Hey, everyone. GameStop apparently listed two official strategy guides for the upcoming Wind Waker remake for the Wii U. As you can see in the image above, there are two of them. One being for the “Collector’s Edition”, and the other for the regular game. Now, we haven’t heard anything about a Collector’s Edition, and while it’s possible that a Collector’s Edition will see the light, this very well may be just for the strategy guide. Guess we’ll find out soon enough!
Hey, guys! Know what’s cool? Jumping on the games journalism bandwagon! And that’s just what we’re going to do today! As I’m sure you’ve heard before if you frequent any of our affiliate sites, Zelda series creator Shigeru Miyamoto was recently interviewed by ABC about his game designing forays, the newly released Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and other general interview-y questions. This interview is a follow-up to a slightly older interview, in which Mr. Miyamoto speaks of gaming culture and his memories developing previously released video games. The interviews are meaty, and have plenty of interesting tidbits about Miyamoto’s career, so any Miyamoto enthusiasts (myself included) would be daft not to view them! I highly recommend viewing the original interviews over at ABC, but if you’re strapped for time, we’ve already nailed down the important Zelda-related bits, for your viewing pleasure. Hit “read more” for all the juicy quotes!
Hot on the heels of announcing our own “Wind Waker Month,” earlier this morning Nintendo broadcasted a global Nintendo Direct announcing many new features and updates for the Wii U. And games. Among the games announced, two stood out us: confirmation of a new Zelda Wii U in development, and a remake in glorious high definition of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
Little information is known at this point, but Eiji Aonuma, the current producer of the Zelda series, mentions that the idea first spawned after they experimented with upgrading the Twilight Princess style of graphics for the Wii U tech demo at E3 2011, and so they tried upgrading the graphics style of Wind Waker. He went on to say that, since it will be some time before the new Zelda Wii U title is ready for release, as it is still in the early stage of development, he hopes that this game will help tide over Zelda fans until it can be released.
As of 12:00 EST on November 18, the Wii U has officially launched in North America! After a year and a half (possibly more) of waiting since the Wii U’s reveal at E3 2011, the first system in the next generation of video game consoles is finally here. The Nintendo World Store is probably flooded with customers just itching to get their hands on Nintendo’s latest console. While others may be holding midnight launches (not confirmed) throughout the country, most stores will be filled with gamers tomorrow morning! On the West Coast, me myself will have to wait until Target opens at 8 in the morning. Will you be picking up the Wii U on launch day, wherever you are? Which set are you getting, if you do? The Wii U launches on November 30 in Europe.
That’s right, the Wii’s successor is almost here, and they’ve finally given us an exact date. Why do I say finally? Because it releases in only two months.
You’ll be able to get your hands on the Nintendo Wii-U on November 18. I recommend getting in line, like, November 15.
Much like the releases of the last generation of consoles, with the Wii strangely notwithstanding, there will be two versions of the Wii-U: First, a basic white version with an 8GB hard drive and a $300 pricetag; and second, a deluxe black version with a 32GB hard drive costing $350.
You can read up on all the features to come with the Wii-U here.
Recently, everyone’s favorite NOA President, Reggie Fils-Aime made an appearance on late night TV show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, talking about Nintendo’s next console, the Wii U. If you missed the appearance, you can see what went on in the video right below.
And that’s it from me. Weegee, out.
This E3, apart from the recently revealed Nintendoland, was disappointingly devoid of Zelda. This makes sense, taking into account we recently got Ocarina of Time 3D, Skyward Sword, and a whole list of 25th anniversary celebrations throughout last year, but just because they had nothing to show about the upcoming Zelda game on Nintendo’s next home console doesn’t mean they had nothing to say about it. In fact, Zelda series creator and Nintendo high-up Shigeru Miyamoto was asked about a Zelda game on the Wii U, and had the following to say. Hit “read more” to see his comments!
This is a video Nintendo of America made for the Wii U developer discussion that happened yesterday after E3. The mini-game Zelda: Battle Quest can be seen from 02:42-03:28 in this video. Even though it’s a mini-game, it looks like it’s quite big and non-linear, so I think it’ll be fun! They said you can also play single-player, and not just multiplayer.
