This weeks podcast features yours truly, with our regular co-host Alfred back in his usual spot as a ZI Podcast first timer joins us. This weeks podcast finally gets to put to rest the seemingly endless gender debate, thanks in large part to Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto. Speaking from a very personal level with this, I am glad that this will be the last time this topic comes up on Zelda Informer. We also finally learn about and discuss the causes behind delays in Zelda game release dates...

One of the most hyped trailers that came from this year's E3 was the one for the newest Zelda title Breath of the Wild. Finally getting a full-length trailer to the most anticipated game from Nintendo gave a chance for gamers to witness what is sure to be an exciting adventure. Thanks to the help of reactors on YouTube, we get to witness how the internet responded to this mesmerizing Zelda trailer...

If you saw the Sheikah Slate in Breath of the Wild and thought "Hot diggity dog, that would make a swanky phone case," then I would love to be your friend because you have a very colorful and fun vocabulary. Also, you're in luck because the someone over at Rebubble had the same idea...

The Breath of the Wild E3 demo revealed that numerous "Shrines" will be scattered around the game's open world, with each acting as its own mini-dungeon offering unique items, puzzles, and secrets. Coverage throughout E3 week revealed that the full game will feature over 100 of these shrines for Link to find and explore, but rumors quickly spread of Breath of the Wild offering a reduced number of main dungeons as a result. We're still not completely sure if BotW will see fewer main dungeons at the expense of more mini-dungeons, but we can still weigh the options to decide if such an outcome is a favorable one...

While I personally like Skyward Sword, there were a few gripes that I did have, just like many other people. The biggest of these was the barren, linear-esque "open world," sky. YouTube channel Grump Out made a video about how he would fix the game's problematic sky. While the video could very well go on forever...

You've no doubt heard a lot of info about the recent Nintendo Shareholders meeting. Well, we have another nugget of info to share with you. According to the report, Twilight Princess HD has been "doing well" as far as sales goes. Nintendo hasn't really had any huge 3DS titles this year, so the Wii U has seen a lot of attention...

Nintendo has some big name titles coming up, between Breath of the Wild and Pokemon Sun and Moon. In fact, Nintendo is confident that the upcoming releases will continue to sell both the Wii U and the 3DS. These two games were Nintendo's focus at E3, and Nintendo has been releasing information at regular intervals for both since...

Nintendo has been steadily moving forward with its plans to extend beyond the realm of video games. The company is currently partnering with Universal to produce Nintendo attractions for Universal Studios Japan and, as we learned yesterday, it is currently in talks with a partner with which to make movies together. Though it was safe to assume that Nintendo would make use of its popular IP in these ventures, the company did us favor during last night's investor meeting by confirming that Nintendo IP would in fact be utilized in "theme parks, character goods, and film contents"...

We're tipping our caps to our favorite current handheld, the 3DS, as it surpasses 60 million units sold worldwide...

In case you weren't burnt out on Breath of the Wild footage, someone recently posted an hour's worth of footage from Nintendo's E3 New York Demo. In it, we get glimpses of what the event was like for those in attendance...
