Yet again there is another limited restock of the rare Majora's Mask edition console, except this time in the UK. If you happen to have £209.99 to burn, you can order the console here. It also includes the rare limited edition Skull Kid figurine, which is a huge bonus.

There is a limit of 1 per person, so if you were hoping to order one for a friend and have him or her pay you later...

Ah, the wonders of modern technology. No one would dream that you could play a mind-blowingly complex game such as The Legend of Zelda for the NES on a simple handheld device when it released in the 80s.

Those of us who still have an NES and a copy of The Legend of Zelda are the object of envy among many. Regardless of whether you have the original, or play it via Virtual Console on your 3DS, anyone can play it on their mobile device or computer using this link...

If you want the New Nintendo 3DS XL Majora's Mask edition, get in your car and drive as fast as you can (without breaking the speed limit, of course) to Fry's Electronics! A fan on Twitter has alerted us that they have restocked their supply of Majora's Mask edition consoles, and provided the photo above as proof...

Many fans may remember the 2012 fan-animated HD Majora's Mask trailer, showing off how a Majora's Mask remake could look on the Wii U. This trailer was the work of Spanish artists Pablo Belmonte and Paco Martínez Odewill, who have worked on many similar fan projects in the past. While not the official Majora's Mask remake, the team announced the project was still working toward something beyond the trailer. Today, the team announced their Iconic Worlds project, a virtual reality experience that allows players to explore the team's past projects, including the Majora's Mask trailer...

It's certainly no secret that many, many of you have not played or finished Zelda II, but to the few that have, it's one of the most unique and satisfying gameplay experiences out there. Not many other games have tried to emulate the Zelda II formula, so it's a treat when a game is released that does. Last year, Ansimuz Games' Elliot's Quest, an indie 8-bit homage to Zelda II, was released onto Steam. Today, those with a Wii U will have a chance to pick up this charming game as it has been finally released onto the Nintendo eShop...

Nintendo has dumped three large chunks of news on us today. We've heard the announcement of a brand new console design, code name NX. Nintendo has also teased their new membership program, which includes the 3DS, Wii U, the NX, as well as PCs and mobile devices.

The third announcement, which I have chosen to talk about, is Nintendo's brand new venture into the world of mobile gaming...

Nintendo has been talking for awhile about rethinking it's user program to encompass future devices. It appears that today, through a new partnership with DeNA in Japan, Nintendo is making it's first huge step towards this realization. They are going to work together on creating a new membership program that encompasses smart devices, pcs, and Nintendo hardware. It is probably safe to assume this would replace or at least enhance Nintendo's current Nintendo Network ID system. Could this be the first step towards a true universal account system...

Nintendo announced earlier today that their IP's will be making their way to Smart Devices - likely including The Legend of Zelda. While these are planned to be brand new games, Nintendo didn't want people left with the impression they are giving up on their dedicated hardware platforms. As such, Iwata has announced a new next generation platform code-named "NX". We don't know for sure, but it's rather safe to assume this will be their new handheld platform. No details were announced for it, however Iwata did note that they will be talking about it (and likely unveiling it) next year...

President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, has continuously indicated that he would not move the company to smart devices, despite the number of consumers in that market. Gradually, he indicated that Nintendo was looking into the best ways to get involved in the mobile gaming sphere, but with a focus on making their home and handheld console presence stronger.  Today, he has revealed exactly what this entails: a new business and capital partner for Nintendo, a new, multi-peripheral membership program and, most importantly, the presence of Nintendo IPs on smart devices...

Last month, Eiji Aonuma announced a Majora's Mask-themed Art Academy contest on Miiverse. Now, four weeks later, the talented winners of the contest are being featured on Nintendo Japan's website.

I'm so glad Nintendo chooses to interact with their fans and give them a chance to be featured on their website...
