This is a rather cute and adorable story, one we're glad Nintendo decided to help participate in. Robert Piazza and Christa Slayton got married at their local GameStop dressed up as Link and Princess Zelda. Zelda themed weddings are certainly nothing new, but some may find the location to be a bit odd. As it turns out, they actually met at this GameStop last year during a Mario Kart 8 Tournament with the proposal for marriage also coming here. It was only natural then to host the wedding there as well, as that store was a huge part of what brought them together. Not to be forgotten...

Don't have Majora's Mask 3D or A Link Between Worlds yet? Now may be the perfect time to buy, as a new Target sale will allow you to buy two select 3DS games and receive a third one free. That's right; you could get two Zelda games and another Nintendo title for free thanks to Target!

A new World Record has been set for a 100% completion run of Link's Awakening DX. Keep in mind that a 100% run does allow for glitches, so long as the game is 100% completed. We understand some prefer for pure glitchsless runs. In an effort to be more fair to the speed running community and our fans, we're going to be reporting on all speed run records that get set for all of the given categories. That includes...

Emulated games are the bane of many companies' existences. While Nintendo has been putting a lot of measures in place to try and prevent the pirating of games, which is a similar concept, that hasn't stopped the hacking community nor the emulation community from coming up with viable solutions. Keep in mind that we don't endorse pirating or emulation - both are illegal according to 99% of user agreements. We prefer anyone...

The Collectible Badge Center, a 3DS application that can be downloaded via the Nintendo eShop, is unfortunately a Japan exclusive. That doesn't mean we can't admire these new The Wind Waker HD themed badges though, does it?

If you're lost on what The Collectible Badge Center does, it allows you to play a certain minigame three times a day...

After only a few months since release, Majora's Mask 3D is already being smashed by speedrunners. For the last month or so, the goal of MM3D speedrunners was to finish the game in less than an hour and 50 minutes. This week marks the completion of this goal, as well as new world records from two different runners. Today saw runner gymnast86 break the record with a time of 1 hour and 47 minutes; shortly after, runner iwabi broke that record with a time of 1 hour, 46 minutes, and 9 seconds...

Fairies have been part of the Zelda series since the game was first released in Japan back in 1986. They have appeared not only in the 17 main games in the series, but plenty of side games, such as Hyrule Warriors, the Tingle series, and the CD-i games. They even made an appearance in the official Zelda cartoon series and naturally the manga. Fairies are probably just as prevalent in nearly every title as Link himself is. MasterOfHyrule has put together a new video featuring every single interation of the fairy from 1986's original title release through Hyrule Warriors...

Nintendo released a video announcing their E3 plans today, just like they did last year with Reggie Fils-a-mech. This year featured Reggie himself heavily again, but they changed up the format to unveil something I feel like no one expected. Sure, they announced another Nintendo Digital Event on June 16th at 9 am PT, and yeah they are doing more Nintendo Treehouse live stream - all par for the course and expected. They even announced another Best Buy limited time demo opportunity, this time for Mario Maker. You know what wasn't expected? The return...

Earlier today, Nintendo of America announced on Twitter that they will be revealing their E3 2015 schedule tomorrow, May 13, at 9 AM PT.

Included in the Tweet was a hooded man who appears to be training alongside some gym equipment. The picture is quite fitting, as Nintendo captioned the picture with...

Update: The Majora's Mask Messenger Bag appears to be sold out.

As most Club Nintendo fans know, the long-standing customer loyalty and rewards program is on its way out this summer, making the way for a new one that will debut later this year. As part of the closure of the program, Nintendo added tons of downloadable games, and a sizeable number of physical rewards, including a jigsaw puzzle featuring Fierce Deity Link and the Moon Children, a Majora's Mask Messenger bag, and a Legend of Zelda themed 3DS XL carrying case. As was the norm with most physical rewards, most...
