Good evening, and welcome back to everyone's favorite (extremely 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...

Here's a topic that I never thought I would bring up. Zelda Informer, for those unaware of our long history, was never actually founded as a leading news site like we are today. In fact, the site was founded upon the backs of a major theorizing group at the time known as The Bombers. Basically, Zelda Informer was known for Zelda theories, not for being particularly great at much else (though, many old staff would argue a certain red designed layout was the pinnacle of layout design achievements during the era it was used). One aspect of those days that has always...

Well, Hyrule Warriors' launch figures are now in for North America. 190,000 units combined (as in, retail and digital) were sold in North America from launch to today. While these aren't massive numbers, it combined with continued Mario Kart 8 sales helped boost Wii U sales nearly 50% over the previous month (August). While this may not necessarily be impressive on it's own, I would estimate the the game has now sold roughly 500k world wide, which isn't a bad starting point for a spin off title on a system that isn't owned by many. Time will tell if it can bring in a consistent 15 to 20k a week for a long stretch...

The highly aniticipated Master Quest DLC for Hyrule Warriors is now live and available for purchase/download after a launch trailer was uploaded to youtube earlier today! Among other items, the pack includes Epona as a weapon for Link, two new outfits for Lana and Cia and much more. If you buy the bundle, which includes this item, three other DLC-packs and the Dark Link costume, it will set you back...

Kyle Bosman, one of my favorite talking heads at Game Trailers, recently stated that Groose was his favorite Zelda character. Of course, no one really cares about that, because the "live ratings" came in and the Final Bosman can't actually talk about Zelda apparently. If you can't catch the drift here, it's pretty much all one big little joke so he can go on and talk about sexism and Bayonetta 2, where he pretty much states that sexism is something that is subjective and will always exist. Which are points I totally agree with. So sure, he talks a bit about   and Groose, but really this is about a much...

Back in September, we told you that Club Nintendo of Japan had received a new addition - the The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds soundtrack. Photographs of the soundtrack have now surfaced online, courteous of Twitter user, FarmboyInJapan...

Have you been dreaming of a steam punk world? How about an even faster travel method than Epona? It appears that Eiji Aonuma likes the Master Cycle in Mario Kart 8 so much that he wants to implement it into a game he is working on (which we all know right now is Zelda U). While this initially seems like a silly notion, this is the series that has had magical talking sail boats, a steam boat, and even a train. Add on that the series has lasers and other mystical (and mechanical) elements, it may not be as out of place as one would think. Here is what Eiji Aonuma had to say on Miiverse when talking...

In this week's issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, the creator and director of Super Smash Bros., Masahiro Sakurai, says that development on the game isn't finished yet...

Although the Internet has been fully aware of the Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS and Wii U "secret" fighter list for a while now, it hasn't stopped Nintendo from turning a blind-eye to this and wanting to release the characters in their own time. Nintendo has been slowly releasing information on the secret fighters, mostly screenshots, onto their official website, the most recent of which featuring Ganondorf from the The Legend of Zelda franchise, and R.O.B. (Robotic Operating Buddy) - the short-lived Nintendo Entertainment System peripheral...

Earlier today, Nintendo finally revealed exactly how the Amiibo figurines will work for the new Smash games, and gave us a comprehensive explanation of their exact uses and advantages.

Basically, the Amiibo figurines are small companions that can be used as playable characters when connected to the Wii U. You can use Amiibos in regular battle, and they are all fully personalized, with ever-changing stats, custom movesets, and a level-up system that grows along with you as you play with the character more and more.

In-game, the Amiibos are known as...
