The 3DS eShop has released the top 20 list of both software, and videos. A Link To The Past made the number one spot on the software list, followed by Ocarina of Time 3D at number 12, and Hyrule Warriors Legends at number 15. Even though A Link To The Past trailer made it on number one on the video list, Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer made number 6.

The entire 3DS eShop chart is shown...

As of April 23rd, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD outsold The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on the UK Wii U eShop for the week. The Wind Waker HD was fourth on the list, whereas Twilight Princess HD was the tenth most purchased game. This is somewhat impressive, considering that The Wind Waker HD was released in 2013, and Twilight Princess HD was recently released a little over a month ago. One can only speculate the reasons behind this outranking. It could be because The Wind Waker HD recently went on sale because of becoming a Nintendo Select...

Nintendo says that they have major games coming to the 3DS scheduled until the end of the year. The company seeks to boost 3DS sales overseas, and they believe that launching major titles will keep current 3DS owners talking about and buying games for the system, as well as reach different demographics (particularly younger customers and women)...

Yes, we know Zelda Wii U has been delayed to 2017 and is launching on both Wii U and NX. Most of the community has accepted that already. What we didn't know is when it would release — whether it would be along with the NX in March 2017, or later in the year. According to Nintendo, the former is true.

Nintendo of America's press website has updated with the new art shown off for Zelda Wii U, and next to it is the release date of March 2017...

Nintendo has officially recognized Zelda's 30th anniversary for the first time this year. There was some concern that Nintendo may not be doing anything with the anniversary this year given they didn't even recognize it on or around the actual anniversary date combined with the fact that Zelda U has now been delayed to 2017, but apparently that concern is no longer warranted. In their latest meeting of the shareholders, Nintendo ensured folks that there is more to come for the anniversary...

After today's whirlwind of news surrounding Zelda U and the NX, we weren't expecting The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses to share some exciting news of their own. The concert series has announced the release of an official Wind Waker Baton, based on its appearance in The Wind Waker and those used by conductors during Symphony of the Goddesses concerts. The Wind Waker Baton is currently available for preorder on the Symphony of the Goddesses website for $40.00 USD, with an expected delivery in June 2016...

Reported in a Japanese publication by the name of Nikkei, Nintendo will supposedly be revealing information on the NX's specs this year. This is already old news, as Nintendo president Kimishima already stated this as fact. However, Nikkei also claims that Nintendo will talk about NX's price, features, as well as launch games for the console.

This information seemingly points to a Sony-style reveal event for code name NX, but this is just speculation...

This week's Nintendo Badge Arcade update brings even more Zelda goodies to your 3DS, and the theme is Tri Force Heroes. There are three panels to collect this week. Joining the Zelda panels are panels from Animal Crossing, Super Mario Bros., Box Boy!!, and Pokemon. There are also some panels that do not belong to games, such as butterfly panels and a Nikki panel...

Nintendo seems to have some aversion to giving out information on their console specs. That's not necessarily a huge mistake, but it would be nice to know just how powerful a console is. It looks like Nintendo will be giving us information on the NX's specs however, as president Kimishima had this to say on the console:

“[NX is] not merely the successor to the handheld 3DS or stationary console Wii U. This will be hardware that’s been made with a new way of thinking..."

Japanese publication Nikkei questioned Nintendo president Kimishima on why code name NX will not be launching during the 2016 holiday season. His response was so that Nintendo "wanted to make sure there were games to go along with the NX." This is certainly sound reasoning, as launch titles are important for a new console.

The question is — what launch titles will the NX have? A new Super Mario title seems accurate, and Zelda Wii U/NX will certainly be there (I hope)...
