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...

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...

Nintendo officially announced the release dates for several amiibo in Europe via their Twitter this morning. It is worth noting that the Europe and North America release dates are vastly different and does not denote release dates, or even release order, of these amiibo in North America. Ganondorf, Dark Pit, Palutena, and Zero Suit Samus release on June, 26 while Dr. Mario, Bowser Jr., and Capt. Olimar release on July, 17. So for those of our fans in Europe, make sure you get ready to pick them up at release...

During a Q and A session, Mr. Iwata stated pretty openly that they are looking at making the NX system become region free. This is huge news for all fans of Nintendo, but especially for Zelda fans. With Nintendo deciding to expand their IPs even more, there is a high chance of more Zelda side games, including ones that aren't released word wide such as the Tingle series. With a region free system, that would allow gamers to import those games if they really want to play it without having to also buy a second system for that specific region. You can also see how this is a huge benefit...

It has been almost a year since the reveal trailer for Zelda U. During the end of last year, actual gameplay footage was shown last-minute to further whet our appetites for this highly-anticipated open world experience. It wasn't long ago that Eiji Aonuma specified that a 2015 release date for Zelda U was no longer the main goal, and that the game will not be shown during E3 2015...

Nintendo released their yearly financial report and things are looking up for both Nintendo and Zelda fans. The only Zelda game reported with official figures being updated was Majora's Mask 3D. So we still don't have any officially updated figures for The Wind Waker HD or A Link Between Worlds, but chances are sales have slowed down on those titles dramatically. What we do know is that as of today, Majora's Mask 3D has sold 2.03 million units across the globe. The game is well on the way to beating out known sales figures for A Link Between Worlds...

Have you ever wanted to go to a Nintendo theme park? That may now be a reality as Nintendo has partnered with Universal Parks and Resorts (yes, that same old Universal Studios folks). It is unclear if Universal would open a new Nintendo themed park or if they would simply expand upon the handful of parks they already have and add Nintendo sections to them. One thing is clear however - it's highly likely bits of Hyrule will be coming to life right before our eyes in the form of new merchandise at the parks, along with new themed rides and possibly even...

Shovel Knight is, without a doubt, one of the most critically acclaimed games to release last year. The indie title has garnered a huge fan base and has since released some version exclusive content on both the PS4 and Xbox One, but the Wii U has been missing that special attention. Sony's Kratos got an exclusive level on the PlayStation consoles and the Battletoads got an Xbox boss level. However, Nintendo has nothing similar to speak of for either of their consoles. That hasn't stopped Yacht Club Games' David D'Angelo from discussing his interest in a Nintendo IP making its appearance...

Are newfangled plastic amiibo just not your style? You're in luck, because three new plushies in the World of Nintendo toy line are sure to take you back to the days of 8-bit gaming. Not only does this new toy pack contain NES-style Mario and Luigi plushies, but an eye-pleasing plushie of our favorite hero in green is included as well...
