A girl was shown in the Breath of the Wild trailer from The Game Awards 2016 who is dressed in clothes similarly to Link. Zelda Informer as well as most of the community surmises this to be a first look at Princess Zelda, but nothing is certain as her face was not shown. I think it's a pretty safe assumption, but you never know.

Stay tuned to Zelda Informer for more Breath of the Wild coverage...

Image & Form Games’ developers sit down on camera to answer some of the questions they received regarding the Nintendo Switch. Some of the questions revolve around what it is like to develop games for the Switch, and other questions are rather random. An example of a random question would be whether or not the Nintendo Switch glows in the dark...

Ubisoft is a third party developer who has agreed to create games for the upcoming Nintendo Switch, and the developer’s French studio director, Xavier Poix, had some interesting things to say about the hybrid console.

Do you have 300 Miitomo or platinum coins saved up on My Nintendo? I hope so, as the new 30th anniversary Zelda theme for the 3DS is now available. It includes the 30th anniversary logo we've seen before, as well as character art of influential people Link has met along his thirty year journey. I'll definitely be purchasing this theme with my coins after I finish writing this post.

Also available for 100 Miitomo/platinum coins each are videos of Zelda symphony performances...

Zelda UniverseTV has been hard at work with PlotlinePlus and Aussieroth to create the best fandub that Zelda Universe has made so far. All of that effort resulted in Twilight Princess HD the Movie Part One being a smooth production of voices and improvements throughout Zelda Universe’s history of fandubbing. In particular, PlotlinePlus noticed things he would have done differently during his own fandub of Twilight Princess and went with those revisions. Zelda Universe anticipates their current Twilight Princess project to be the biggest thus far, considering they had over 4,400 auditions on BTVA, according to Alexander Trevino...

We realize that's a lot to digest in a single sitting, so we have split up the cast into multiple parts that we will be releasing each day, with the final release being the full 3 hour cast in video form. This is important to note since each release will include the full 3 hour audio, as we are only splitting up the video portions. Today we're bringing to you our 90 minute "end of podcast" The Game Awards 2016 prediction special. We go through almost every single award and the various nominees, giving predictions on which title we think will win each award along with the title we personally want to win each award...

Apparently the most difficult system to get right now isn't a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One, but an NES Classic Edition. In the blink of an eye, this mini-console sold out faster than Nintendo could make them. While they have come out and confirmed that more are on their way, the current situation has some gamers scrambling to find a non-scalper price system online. If you're willing to take a chance then ThinkGeek has an opportunity for you...
