While many of us are aware of the top quality figurines produced by first4figures, most would agree that those are generally out of the price range of most of us Zelda gamers. There is no dispute on the quality of them, so how could some cheaper versions made by Dark Horse hold up? You can decided for yourself by dissecting IGN's ubboxing. Link will run you $80, while Ganondorf will run you $125. Link is roughly 10 inches tall while Ganondorf is 12 inches tall. Either way, I am adding both of them to my Christmas Wish List, because I really want them, but can't justify the cost right now...

Shortly after E3, a fan gave us a look at what Zelda U could look like at night, assuming the game has a day and night cycle (which is a fair assumption). Another fan decided to take a crack at it and I simply am not sure which version I like better, nor which is more likely to be what the game actually looks like. Either way, it is absolutely gorgeous. I think it is fair to say that once Hyrule Warriors comes out, we'll all be pressing for something new for Zelda U - even if it's just a short 30 second trailer...

This may not be a surprise to some, but some GameStops are reportedly doing a midnight release for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. Stores that do midnight release tend to do them based on pre-orders. I checked with my local GameStop and they haven't made a final decision on it, but supposedly one GameStop at least received an email telling them to do it. Some GameStops also did midnight releases for Pokemon X and Y, so it's not completely unheard of when it comes to Nintendo games. I don't believe any Wii U games have had a midnight release yet, but maybe that also changes for Super Smash...

Welcome to our second podcast in as many weeks (what is this, we're actually making this a regular thing? Great!) and we have a lot to talk about. The cast this week includes our typical host Adam, Colin (our Managing Editor), Jake (just some dude), and yours truly. Remember that our podcast, outside of the host, will be a rotating cast of character each week as we get varying opinions and discussion on different topics. This time around we talk a lot about Hyrule Warriors, a bit about Tokyo Game Show, and a fun conversation about Destiny - because we aren't oblivious to games that aren't...

Yesterday we discussed bringing various aspects of the 2D Zeldas into future titles of the third dimension; today it's time to flip that discussion on its head. As much as the 3D games could learn from the original classics and the handheld titles, could the reverse not be true as well? Couldn't we take certain aspects of the 3D titles and bring them over...

Good evening, and welcome back to everyone's favorite (late) Thursday event: ZI Votes! For those who are new to this feature, worry not; participating is as simple as clicking two buttons (well, maybe three if you're seeing this on our social media pages). Every week I pose a question to you regarding some aspect of Zelda, whether it be a new game, an old game, or something about the series in general, and I put it into a poll format right here at Zelda Informer. While it's fun getting responses to all articles in the comments...

I really enjoy Fridays. I get to share another fan fiction from one of our fans to the Zelda Informer community and it's a wonderful feeling to see the impact that it has on readers and writers. Last week, Oni shared a story of the characters behind their masks and many of us are happy to find that the story isn't over. Speaking of masks, our story this week is a sequel to the classic Majora's Mask for N64. Link is gone from the land of Termina, but an evil force still lingers...

Nintendo of America announced on their Twitter and Facebook that the recently revealed Hyrule Warriors DLC Packs will be available in a season pass for just $20 USD. This is actually a really great deal, given that in Japan, all four packs add up to around $40 in USD value. Of course, whether or not the content of these packs is worth the money is up to the individual, so be sure you check out the full rundown of what you can get. Chances are this will be available to preorder on day one. While I won't recap what I posted yesterday, I will remind you that getting the season pass will net you a Dark Link skin...

As Hyrule Warriors and its DLC packs finally came out today, we finally get a look at everything it has to offer.

A French YouTuber by the name of riff raff graciously uploaded some footage of the Dark Link costume in the game's DLC, giving us our first real look at what the costume will look like in real gameplay.

The footage is of a cutscene at some midpoint of the game, which shows Dark Link jumping into battle...

As you may remember, a limited edition of Hyrule Warriors was confirmed for European gamers about a month ago, coming with a scarf like Link's in the game.

Some guys over at DigitalGreenTV decided to upload an unboxing video of this limited edition box today...
