Do you live in Europe? Are you getting ready to pre-order the GAME exclusive version of A Link Between Worlds? Well, too bad, because your pre-order will have to wait. GAME has temporarily removed the bundle due to an error with the pre-order bonus download codes for Link's Awakening that come with the product.
Unfortunately we have had to temporarily remove The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds GAME Exclusive Collectors Edition due to a fault with the download code for the Pre Order bonus code for The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening.
We are looking into this issue and will hopefully have this available for purchase as soon as possible.
GAME is looking into the issue and plans the make the Collector's Edition available for pre-order once more as soon as possible. A Link Between Worlds will launch in Europe and North America on November 22nd, while Australia will have to wait an extra day till the 23rd.
Don't be too surprised those of you in Europe, but it seems Nintendo may have let it slip a tad early that GAME would be offering a special Zelda chest for pre-ordering A Link Between Worlds. According to the retailer GAME on Twitter, the store has no pre-orders ready for announcement at the moment, but do have something special coming soon.
“You may have seen last night @NintendoUK tweeted about a pre-order chest item for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. We have no pre-order bonus to announce BUT you can be sure we’re working with Din, Nayru & Farore to bring you something special… Until then, feast your eyes on this special LoZ: A Link Between Worlds #3DSXL available to pre-order tomorrow!”
It seems a bit counter-intuitive to deny something that was officially announced by Nintendo, especially when the pre-order bonus is on GAME Spain's website. But good news is there for Australian fans of Zelda as EB Games will be offering the chest as a nice bonus to those who pre-order A Link Between Worlds.
Hope you weren't expecting Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS to come with no clone characters past Luigi, because Toon Link has just been confirmed to be smashing his way into the Nintendo all-star brawl!
The first thing you'll notice is that although Toon Link looks amazing, he looks dozens of steps above his Wind Waker character model. It's surprising just how much of a difference there is! Be sure to hop on in to check out all the screenshots in their beautiful HD glory!
It's not a secret to everyone that The Wind Waker HD is really something to behold in HD. Even after 10 years, the game still looks better than most modern games due to its unique art style. But The Wind Waker doesn't just look good, as it's a pretty highly acclaimed game that many still credit as their favorite Zelda of all time!
Now that The Wind Waker HD is just a few days away from a digital release, we've decided to go through our press copy to snag some of our favorite screenshots to share with you! We'll be posting more throughout the coming days on both our Twitter and Facebook page as well as here, so be sure to like and follow us on both so you don't miss a thing!

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is an upcoming action-adventure game coming to iOS machines (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and if you can't tell, doesn't it look slightly familiar? Does it remind you of any other games? It really should, if I need to spell it out for you. Media and other news sites are calling this game the possible "Legend of Zelda for iOS" for a reason.
Anyway, the game has been in development for two years now and the development team behind Oceanhorn has stated on the game's blog that they have reached the final leg of production. With that post, there was also a link to the game's debut trailer which was shown at Gamescom 2013.

A couple months ago, we posted about a new texture pack built for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This mod transforms the darker artstyle of the game to the more colorful look of Skyward Sword. That's right. This game makes Twilight Princess look like Skyward Sword.
We've only seen a few screenshots of the mod in action, but we're getting a lot more now! The team behind the project has uploaded a teaser, showcasing footage of the texture pack in motion. We also have a ton of screenshots that show off the new look for the game.
Head in past the jump to see both! Check out the project's official page here!
Imagine a world in which Nintendo announced a brand new CG film for The Legend of Zelda which combined the art styles of Dreamworks and Twilight Princess for one glorious and epic fantasy adventure. What would the result be? It'd probably look a lot like this scrapped Zelda film pitch.
So why exactly is this video so old? It's because it's a failed movie pitch from a former American portion of Imagi Animation Studios who made the CG TMNT and Astro Boy films. As expected, the studio failed to obtain the rights for a film and the pitch was scrapped, never to see the light of day on the big screen. Hop on in to watch!
Popular Nendoroid manufacture, Good Smile Company, announced some interesting figures to be released in the near future. The Legend of Zelda's Link will be receiving his own Nendoroid based off of his appearance in The Wind Waker.
To fall in line with the year of Luigi, Luigi from Super Mario Bros. will also be receiving his own Nendoroid from Good Smile as well. Both figures were announced at Japan's Wonder Festival Summer and they'll presumably be released this year.
While the Nendoroids aren't as open to customization as figmas, they're certainly worth any fan's money. Among another announcements, a figma for Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening was announced along with figmas of Eren and Mikasa from Attack on Titan.
Do you love The Legend of Zelda? Are you always wondering about the many unexplained mysteries found in the series? Wonder no further! Our friends over at Zelda Universe are currently doing a series of articles which explore the many mysteries of Hyrule. The articles examine things such as the mysterious Gerudos and the Flood that occurred prior to Wind Waker, giving carefully thought out insight into the mysteries. Many in-game quotes are also included, and the explanations made are of sound logic, closely following paths set forth by the games themselves.
This is a really great series of articles to read as they cover all points of the topics in question and do so in a clear, intelligible way. Be ready for a lot of reading, though, as well thought out explanations come at the cost of longer articles. Every second is enjoyable and enlightening, though, so be sure to check out Mysteries of Hyrule here.
Almost everyone is familiar with LEGOs -- I've certainly stepped on enough of them to be. What you might not have heard about is CUUSOO, a site that allows users to submit ideas for consideration by the LEGO company. People submit an overview of their desired set and images or blueprints to illustrate how it would be constructed and how each minifigure would be created, while other users are able to express their support through registry. Once a design reaches 10,000 backers, it goes to be approved.
