Hello, universe! Let us open our minds and accept yet another Zelda Informer Caption Contest into our lives. With August winding down, we've finally reached the end of our exciting celebration of cel-shaded heroes known as Toon Link Month. This themed month has taken us to many different places, from crooked mountains, to cartoony trains, to the blinding sights of Link's laser eyes. It's been an unforgettable few weeks, and we end it here with this Toon Link parade...

Since it was first listed for preorder through EB Games, we've been patiently awaiting more information on the upcoming Zelda Trading Card set. While a Value Box and booster packs are scheduled for release in October through EB Games, collectible manufacturer Enterplay has recently listed two new box-sets for the Zelda trading cards, currently available for preorder on their online store. The $71.76 "Fun Pack" and the $10 "Collector's Fun Box" are expected to release in late September and Mid-November, respectively...

Instead of developing Twilight Princess HD internally, Nintendo hired a developer group named Tantalus to work on the project. The company previously worked on Deux Ex: Human Revolution, as well as the Mass Effect games on Wii U. CEO Tom Craig recently talked with IGN regarding the HD remaster, where he discusses Nintendo hiring them, the development process, and more. Check out the quote...

The three CD-i Zelda titles are widely considered to be terrible games that only came in existence due to contractual agreements that remained in place after Nintendo bailed out on yet another opportunity to introduce a disc based system to their platforms (first they bailed on Sony, than Phillips). When they did this to Sony, they turned around and released their own platform that became hugely successful. Philip's similar attempt, called the Philips CD-i, failed spectacularly. However, they retained rights to use two...

At Zelda Informer we've been working hard to expand the type of coverage provided for the series we all adore. While news and fan content remain central to what we do, original content is what allows us to really look beyond the ebb and flow of news. We've had editorials since day one in 2007 and in more recent years we've had an ongoing weekly podcast (recently rebooted as of a few months ago to focus more squarely on Zelda). I can point to a half dozen or so currently ongoing original content based things at our site, but today is special as we launch a brand new biweekly video feature...

As we mentioned previously, the Breath of the Wild demo will be playable at the EB Games Expo 2016. Located in Sydney, Australia and running from September 30th until October 2nd, there will certainly be a lot of people itching to play. Unfortunately, the demo will only be playable to a select few individuals, but today we have more information on how you can become one of these lucky players. Nintendo will be hosting several contests for players to enter. The winners of these contests will receive a Play Pass that will allow them to play the Breath of the Wild demo while at the expo....

While the rest of the world is waiting until next year for The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts, Japan already has the book as The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Graphics. A Japanese fan with a secured a copy of the book has uploaded a few photos of it for us to look at, so let's do just that.

These photos show the width of the book, the table of contents, as well as...

Hello, my lovelies. Get your creative juices flowing, because we're just about ready to kick off another Zelda Informer Photoshop Contest. Now, since the release of Suicide Squad a few weeks back, I have been meaning to frame a contest around a supposed team-up of various Zelda villains. Just think about the dastardly deeds and severe evils that would be unleashed if we saw Ganon team with Skull Kid or we saw Ghirahim partner with Zant. If you've had a dream villain team-up stirring in your head, share it with us this week. And don't forget to check out the winners of last week's contest: Link and the Gang at the Olympic Games...

Earlier today we reported on a Let's Play Video Gamesrumor regarding the NX detachable controllers and how they are capable of motion controls. Industry insider Emily Rogers, who has a decent track record regarding Nintendo reports, later stated the rumor "has truth." This certainly adds some more credibility to LPVG's article. She went on to drop a few more tidbits of information regarding the NX's touch screen...
