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...

Yesterday we reported about the release of September's NPD report and its relevance to Hyrule Warriors. The e-mail contained more than just Hyrule Warriors news though, and presented us with some interesting information about Super Smash Bros.' US sales figures. Although they might not be extremely suprising, taking into account that Super Smash Bros. is widely...

If you enjoy keeping your 3DS intact, then you may be interested in this piece of art. The gaming hardware company HORI has released a new design to the multitude of 3DS cases. This particular design is a black and green hard case with a The Legend of Zelda theme. It sports a fairly happy looking 8-bit Link with arms raised as he holds a piece of the Triforce and 8-bit Triforce zippers. The case includes the allotted space that can fit a 3DS XL, 3DS, DSi XL or DSi system, also features a pocket space which fits up to six 3DS games. Finally the ...

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...

New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS LLSales figures are in for the launch of the New Nintendo 3DS in Japan and it happened to do really well. In fact, so did Super Smash Bros. for 3DS... as it continues to show strong sales week to week since launch. It didn't top the charts in Japan, but it landed at #2 with 76,392 units sold. The New Nintendo 3DS naturally did a lot better during it's launch period (2 days recorded) where the regular edition sold 70,050 while the LL edition sold 164,756 units. This is according to the the Media Create sales. For those curious, Famitsu had them chiming in at 61,151 and 172,332 respectively. Either way it...

Smash has been out worldwide for over a week now, and some of the top fighters in the world are gathering together for a tournament to see who is at the top of the early game. With characters like Little Mac dominating the online community, we can expect to see some heavy hitting fights between the competitors, but I am excited to see what tactics are being brought to counter the Smash powerhouse. Nintendo is broadcasting the event live now, and we've got your video footage. The winner will receive a limited edition robe and trophy...

Every now and then I stumble upon an artist whom I had never previously heard of before. Zesiul is such an artist I happened upon today, and this person has done some amazing fan works for The Legend of Zelda. In fact, they are so good I almost wish Nintendo would hire them as a concept artist. They have re-imagined GanonMajora's Mask, and even Horsehead. Simply put, I am astonished in a way I haven't been for some time. It takes me back to when I was a child use to imagine all these characters in the world we live in...
