Just like in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there will be a masterpiece mode in which you can play the classic games from which the fighters in Smash originate. In the newest iteration of Smash, there are two Legend of Zelda games included, those games being...

An interesting addition to the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the Gamecube adapter, which some lucky gents already have their hands on. Since most hardcore Smash Bros. fans love playing with the Gamecube controller this should be an interesting addition to the line of accessories purchasers will be getting their hands on in as little as one week.

Ben Bertoli, creator of ClassRealm, a platform for teachers to introduce 'gamification' into the classroom, was one of the lucky...

As most people that follow Nintendo-related news will know, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be releasing stateside in less than one week. Quite a few news outlets, including us here at Zelda Informer, have received a review copy of the above mentioned game. One website which has steadily been releasing information about one of the most anticipated games of 2014 is IGN, with videos being the platform they frequent the most.

Today, they released a video...

We all fondly remember the Captain Toad side missions in Super Mario 3D World, but apparently the entire concept for these was intended to star The Legend of Zelda's hero... Link. The chief reason? He couldn't jump. Shinya Hiratake, the man behind the entire concept of Captain Toad, stated that he wanted to build these tiny platforming worlds that took away your ability to jump. Since the Mario characters are all known for jumping, his mind floated to the Zelda series, where Link cannot jump by standard means. The idea and concepts for this game eventually floated to Miyamoto, who thought initially it was an idea for a physical product (a board game perhaps?). When the game was presented...

In a recent interview with Famitsu about the upcoming Majora's Mask 3D, Eiji Aonuma revealed some details about how the original Majora's Mask came to be. Nintendo had planned to make Ocarina of Time: Master Quest in the year after Ocarina of Time came out, but Aonuma wanted to make an entirely new game with entirely new dungeons instead of just remixing the old dungeons...

In a recent interview with Famitsu, Eiji Aonuma shared some more information on the upcoming Majora's Mask 3D. In the original game, the designers expected the player to have come from Ocarina of Time and already be familiar with some of the basic mechanics of the game. Because of this, not everything was explained clearly and players who started with Majora's Mask had a tendency to get lost. For the remake, the team wants to make sure that newer players have just as easy a time getting into it as veteran players...

According to a notice posted on Japan's official amiibo website, the ever-growing collection of amiibo figures will only be able to store information for one game at a time...

With Super Smash Bros. for Wii U just ten days away for our American readers, it shouldn't seem all too suprising that Nintendo will be trying to market the game as much as posssible. Super Smash Bros. news has been flowing in these last couple days, as expected, with Nintendo's American youtube channel presenting us with a new commercial, this time showing off one of the new additions to the game: eight player smash! 

Alongside the above...

Well, that didn't take long. We haven't even had the very first wave of Amiibo's hit store shelves and we're already aware of what's coming next year. It appears new Amiibo's will be arriving rather quickly, confirming Nintendo's initial warning that several of them will be available only for a limited time. The 2nd batch of Amiibo's arrives in December of this year, with the 3rd batch hitting January 22nd (in Japan) and the 4th batch arriving in February. It's safe to assume those dates will be fairly close to the release dates in other parts of the world too...
