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!
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!
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!
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.
Disappointing news has come to us in the Zelda community today. If you remember, a LEGO enthusiast by the name of “MINGLES” set up a page on LEGO CUUSOO recently detailing a LEGO Zelda collection, and after garnering an impressive 10,000 supporters, the page received a review from the LEGO company themselves.
The results, however, were disappointing in the end. LEGO has announced that they will not be creating a LEGO Zelda set on grounds that it would require too much expenditure of resources, as a Zelda LEGO collection would require a staggering number of original molds. This decision is a bit of a let-down for us fans of Zelda and LEGO alike, but understandable– it’s not likely LEGO would be able to find use of those unique molds anywhere outside of their Zelda collection, after all.
So chalk it up to financial integrity that keeps us away from potentially awesome new Zelda merchandise. For the full statement from LEGO, hit “read more”. For saddened fan response, hit “comments”. In the event that there is no saddened fan response to be found in the comments section, consider adding one yourself– that kind of original mold wouldn’t cost you a thing but time!
Hi. Zelda Symphony recently performed in a “Mini-Concert” of sorts at Nintendo World in New York City. In case you don’t know, Nintendo World this giant multiple level store that sells all things Nintendo, and it’s totally worth a visit if you get the chance.
Anyone who happened to be in the area on September 15th was in for a treat, as they got to witness a 1 hour concert performed by a portion of the Zelda Symphony, as well as multiple other events, including a guest appearance from Docjazz, a popular ocarina player on YouTube (Who you should definitely check out if you haven’t before). Now, if you’re all bummed out because you missed this event, you need not worry. The Zelda Symphony will be going on tour again, and full details of dates and times can be found on their Website if you are interested. That’s all for now guys, have a great day!
The above screenshot is a supposedly “leaked” screenshot for Zelda 3DS. It comes from this thread on GameFAQs Forum. In this shot, the subtitle reads Shrimp Shield. And by the looks of it, Grezzo’s on board. Great! But I know some of you are already thinking: It’s fake. Most likely, yes, it is – but we’ve yet to get a confirmation of any kind. Fake or not, I think this looks great as we’ve yet to see a Zelda game based around the Shield. And with the last game centered around the Sword, who knows? Could be? There are 2 possible ways this person obtained this shot. Hit the jump to find out what I think of it as well as why I think it’s fake.
