Nintendo has been releasing strings of videos throughout the day, making sure anything that was not covered in yesterday's Super Smash Bros. livestream event becomes clear. Alongside these other videos, Nintendo uploaded a new Amiibo trailer presenting us not only with new information about eight player smash and how Amiibo works, but also some notable adjustments have been made to Link's Amiibo figure. If we compare the old version of Link's Amiibo to...

If possible, try to quit playing Hyrule Warriors or Super Smash Bros. for a while and check out the Halloween 3DS Home Screen themes, now that they have been released in North America and Europe! That's right, if you didn't like the original Link Between Worlds theme, another Zelda-related item is now available alongside Animal Crossing and Black-Cat designs! We covered the Legend of Zelda theme already, but for those who are too lazy to click on the link, here's a quick recap...

With any new big news rush comes several stunning new screenshots. The Wii U ones in particular this time around look absolutely gorgeous. All of these screenshots come straight from Nintendo of America's press room. We have tried to preserve the quality of the images as best as we can to share them with you while not breaking our server - seriously these images were huge! What are you waiting for, check it out in the gallery below...

As many who have played any Super Smash Bros. game may have witnessed, battles you engage in can get pretty hectic. Now imagine a group of several hundred people trying to play the newest addition to the Super Smash Bros. game series as one character, which is not coincidentally exactly what is going on right this very moment on the popular livestreaming website TwitchTV. The person(s) behind the massively popular channel 'TwitchPlaysPokemon', known for its viral livestreaming event sharing the same name, decided to launch a stream where...

About a month ago we reported that information had been found surrounding DLC making it's way into Super Smash Bros. for 3DS in the form of stages. Hackers haven't stopped digging since then, and are still delving deep into the game's code, trying to spot any hints that may confirm DLC support or functionality. Recently they found further 'evidence' suggesting that a DLC store will eventually be present. Another idea fanatics have at the moment is that...

Earlier, we told you about a Halloween-themed The Legend of Zelda 3DS theme hitting the Japanese e-Shop. Now, a Skyward Sword 3DS theme has also been announced for the e-Shop, over on Nintendo of Japan's YouTube channel...

With Halloween just around the corner, Nintendo decided to get into a spooky mood and released new, Halloween related 3DS home screen themes. One of these themes is based entirely around The Legend of Zelda, and more specifically the first installement. On the 3DS' upper screen the theme features blue Keese and their more rare form, red keese, along side a single Stalfos toppped off with an orange background, purple highlights...

So way back when we talked about the Link Nendoroid. At the time it was only announced to be coming (along with Luigi)... but that was over a year ago. Back in April we mentioned that he was available for preorder in Japan, along with a slew of exact details. Still, this was only useful if you planned to import, which can be fairly expensive. While the North American pre-orders have been available for a handful of months this year, regretfully we forgot to inform you about them...

For those Zelda fans who are on the fence about Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo UK has a trailer with a focus on our hero.  In the recently released "A Link to the Smash" video, Nintendo interviews Smash fans (some in costume!) regarding how they feel about the new game and how Link plays in it.  Those interviewed seem to agree that Link has been improved since previous entries and is a very versatile character (e.g. long-range attacks, short-range, etc.), although some note that...

Sakurai continues to talk weekly to Famitsu about Super Smash Bros. This time around it's about why the 3DS version came out before the Wii U edition, along with some brief tidbits about Final Smash changes and 3DS stage decision they had to make due to hardware limitations. It's some interesting insight into the development behind both versions of the game. He also seems to confirm that the Wii U version of the game is going to have a lot more game play modes than the 3DS version...
