Update: photo discovered on the timeline of twitter user ChrisX930, a friend of the original poster, three days earlier shows that the arrival of Twilight Princess 3D was merely a hack. 

Is Twilight Princess 3D happening? We've had it rumored in the past but haven't really heard anything since... until now. It appears folks at a recent Zelda Symphony performance streetpassed someone playing Twilight Princess 3D - presumably someone that works for Nintendo at the event. We have multiple pictures taken of the streetpass seemingly confirming it. Obviously this could be a big ruse, but we have reputable people mentioning it, such as the folks behind Nintendo Domination. So we can't be 100% certain, but this is the biggest suggestion we've had that this is happening...

Most of us may not have a Japanese Nintendo 3DS, but that doesn't mean we can't drool over the new Zelda pins available in the Badge Center app on the 3DS eShop! This latest set is packed full of characters, enemies, items, and terrain from the original Legend of Zelda on NES...

Last week I discussed the terrible narrative of Majora’s Mask, and today we’re taking a look at its terrible gameplay. Majora’s Mask went to great lengths to differentiate itself from other games in the Zelda franchise when it was released in 2000, but there’s a wide gap between simply standing out and successfully innovating.

While some of Majora’s Mask’s gameplay delivered fresh and rewarding experiences, it also served up many stale slogs of repetition, unpolished game mechanics, and major features that were undercooked. Let’s start with a look at one of the worst game mechanics in Majora’s Mask: the way it handles saving game progress...

Majora's Mask 3D is assuredly going to move more than a million units here in North America, as Nintendo is reporting 184,000 sales for the game last month with 730,000 sold all together. World Wide sales are likely around 2 million right now, though we can't confirm the international figures just yet. Either way, this game certainly has the long term potential of outselling Ocarina of Time 3D assuming it can find a consistent sales figure month to month down the line...

Nintendo and Viz Media are launching the official A Link to the Past graphic novel as written by Shotaro Ishinomori. It was first released as a series of of "comics" in Nintendo Power Magazine, but later collected to create this graphic novel. The Nintendo World Store has decided to host a launch party for the novel, which releases on May 1st. The party will include light refreshments, a cake cutting ceremony, a Q and A session with someone from Viz Media (who compiled the graphic novel), and it will feature a gallery of color prints from the novel itself...

Fans holding off on purchasing the 3D remake of Majora's Mask may now want to open their wallets. The popular Ocarina of Time sequel has just gone through a price drop on Amazon and Best Buy...

I lost more than four hours of progress in Majora’s Mask because I committed the cardinal sin of watching the Moon fall. This forced me to replay one of the worst dungeons in the Zelda series: the dreary and mazelike Great Bay Temple. This situation wouldn’t be so bad if the knee-jerk response from fans weren’t giddy excitement. Losing my progress, as they might claim, is what the Happy Mask Salesman was warning me about with all his talk of meeting a “terrible fate.”

It is a terrible fate. And Majora’s Mask is a terrible game, especially by Zelda standards...

Among three different PlayStation Store gift cards and an Xbox Live Gold membership card, Majora's Mask 3D is still one of the top five 2015 best selling gaming products on Amazon. It currently holds the fifth spot, keeping yet another Xbox Live Gold Membership card in number six.

This isn't the first time Majora's Mask has landed a spot on the list...

As with many special edition Majora's Mask 3D products lately, Prima's MM3D Collector's Edition Strategy Guide has been restocked on Amazon. The beautiful hard cover guide is available now for $27.50 USD. If you'd like to get your hands on the guide, we recommend you purchase it now for Collector's Edition items like this have a tendency to sell out in a matter of hours...

Yesterday, Nintendo announced a brand new Super Smash Bros. ballot via a Nintendo Direct. The purpose of this ballot is to determine what new characters would be added to the game. Nintendo has given us, the fans, the power of changing Smash Bros.'s future!

What character should the fans want? What character does Smash Bros. need? Being a dedicated Zelda fan, I want more Zelda in my Smash; but what Zelda character should be added? Here are my top three choices for who it should be...
