- Zelda Eternity
Late last year, Nintendo stunned the Zelda fanbase by revealing Hyrule Warriors, a new Zelda game with the gameplay style of Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors. At the time, the only information on the release date was that it would come out some time in 2014.
Well, the most recent issue of Famitsu magazine has confirmed that Nintendo’s new hack-and-slash will be dropping in Japan on August 14th, 2014. Keep checking back for more information on the international releases.
The most recent Zelda game was a return to the classic bird’s-eye view of the Super Nintendo days, and few would argue that it was a fantastic Zelda game.
Could it be that this experiment was so successful that a new Zelda game as soon as the very next one could follow in its footsteps? Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma seems to be implying that such a thing could happen in his recent interview with the Official Nintendo Magazine. Check out the original interview here. Here’s what he said:
“I think the top-down view made the ability to enter the wall really interesting. Also, in this game, I feel we’ve found a new direction in regards to the potential use of the good old top-down view for Zelda. It’s the kind of point we will take in good consideration when thinking about the next Zelda game.”
Do you find this to be an exciting prospect? Or are you just itching for a return to behind-the-back 3D? Be sure to give us your input and predictions.

Many of us have fond memories of the 2006 Nintendo Monopoly board game, or at least memories of how much we wanted it. Well, Nintendo is once again taking a stroll into the world of board games with the announcement of Zelda and Pokemon themed Monopoly games.
Announced by USAopoly at last month’s International Toy Fair, the games will be coming out this September and will retail for $45.
This comes shortly after Iwata’s January announcement that Nintendo would be using character licences in new fields, so maybe we will see more off-beat products like this in the future.

If yesterday you told me Link would soon star in a crossover between The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors, I would have laughed you out from under the bridge I call my home. I’m certainly glad you didn’t because that would cause me to feel very embarrassed today, as that very thing was just announced on Nintendo Direct!
Don’t believe me? The following trailer should hush your doubting lips.
Although Halloween is a little over a month away, many people are starting to look now for the perfect costume. One costume that Zelda fans may want to consider is this one made by RedstarCosplay. The costume, which is being sold on Etsy.com, will set you back $89 before shipping, but this outfit (which comes in multiple colors and sizes) definitely looks like a costume that will turn heads this year and many more Halloweens!
The upcoming Monster Hunter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS will include via download a whole set of Link’s clothing and equipment. As seen in the picture above, the player can first off set their character to appear as the Hero with a full-fledged tunic. Then, weapon-wise, “Link” can either have a Master Sword/Hylian Shield combo, or, if the character is a long-range attacker, they will have Link’s bow (which, I might add, looks quite intense).
If you play the video, you can watch the introduction of the Zelda DLC. Enjoy!
People of Zelda Eternity, hear me: If you ever get the chance to attend the Symphony of the Goddesses concert, jump on it. I can guarantee you that it will be one of the greatest experiences of any Zelda fan’s life. This past June, I had the privilege of attending Symphony of the Goddesses: Second Quest in Austin, Texas. I did not have the opportunity to go to the first quest, or season, so I didn’t exactly know what to expect from the experience. I was not, however, disappointed. What follows is a review of the show and my experience at it.
If you have visited GenGame recently you may have noticed that they have posted an update concerning Wind Waker HD! The article, found here, features before and after screenshots of Wind Waker HD! It seems by the screenshots posted that Nintendo has reduced the amount of Bloom lighting in the game, making it not as bright as before but still giving it the HD look and feel. Here, let me show an example GenGame posted:
Before and after! The screenshots were officially released by The Wind Waker HD site, found here . I think the updated look was a good idea for the game, but I can appreciate both styles in the end. All in all I am excited for the game to come out!
What do you think about the updated screenshots? Let us know in the comments below!
On August 7th, GamesHQMedia uploaded a video on YouTube featuring some great Wind Waker HD footage. The video shows off some awesome graphics that are much smoother and more detailed. The changes in lighting are especially notable while Link is on water and at the Forsaken Fortress. The bright sunlight casts an almost angelic glaze over Link and the King of Red Lions, while the Moblins’ lanterns cast an eerie, yet noticeable warmer, glow upon the area. The colors are also more prominent and richer, as can be seen in the small clip where everyone’s favorite (and least favorite) character Tingle greets Link with colorful confetti.
The video also reveals some tweaks to the gameplay. These include an adjustment to the Triforce Shard collection sequence, as well as sped up “Wind Waker actions”. Sailing will also be slightly different, as you will be able to have more control over the speed. From the footage, it can also be noted that items can be equipped to the Y, X, and R buttons, and that the directional pad will most likely be used for the Wind Waker, cannon, and the boat’s grappling hook.
So after viewing the footage, what are your thoughts about this new and updated look? What are you most looking forward to about the game itself?
