Earlier today, Nintendo has officially released their plans for the upcoming PAX Prime 2015 event. Here are the plans that were released...

Super Mario Maker has been making quite a splash with its amiibo features, the most exciting of which adds your favorite Nintendo characters to the game as playable sprites. The Zelda franchise is obviously represented, with Hyrule's bravest hero featured prominently in this Mario game's trailers. In fact, a recent trailer showing off Super Mario Maker's amiibo support gives Zelda fans better look at how Link will be used in the game...

In Famitsu Magazine's latest edition of their most wanted games, Zelda U takes the 17th spot with 183 votes.

An interesting aspect of this listing is that this is not the first time this highly-anticipated Zelda home console experience has made the cut. Last June, Zelda U made Famitsu's most wanted, but was in the 13th spot. This time around, Zelda U is at #17, which means that the game has fallen down 4 spots on the list...

This year has been a very good year for Zelda fans. Yes, Zelda U was delayed, but Nintendo is not leaving us high and dry. We've received a new remake for the 3DS, Majora's Mask 3D, various Zelda amiibo, and new DLC for Hyrule Warriors (not to mention a 3DS port).

However, Nintendo has not stopped there. As we all know, the release of Tri Force Heroes and the Ganondorf amiibo is approaching very soon. What better way to keep track of their release dates with this official chart...

I don't know about you, but I listen to a lot of musical video game covers. Sometimes, I struggle to find covers that will help me relax, but today I found a somewhat jazzy cover of the Great Fairy's Fountain Theme that is sure to help you chill.

This particular cover was produced by a YouTuber by the name of Mewmore, who has also uploaded a sub-pop indie cover of Zelda's Lullaby that focuses on synthesizers. I highly suggest listening to both, as each are very well done...

Ever wanted to show off your allegiance to the Zelda franchise by using clothing that isn't too casual, yet isn't too fancy? If the answer is yes, then you're in luck.

One of the big names in all things geekery, ThinkGeek, has released two Zelda-themed polo shirts. The price of one shirt is $29.99 USD, and you can order them here from the ThinkGeek website. There are two simple designs: one has a gold Triforce emblazoned on it, and the other has a gold...

Ever wanted a sweet carrying case that is functional, but at the same time shows off your devotion to a video game franchise? If you live in Europe, and have 4,000 "stars" in the Club Nintendo Europe program, now you can. The official description of this product is as follows:

"Your friends will be green with envy over this stylish Zelda case!

Emblazoned with the iconic Hylian Crest from The Legend of Zelda series..."

This month, Takara Tomy ARTS, a Japanese toy distributor, will be selling figurines of four characters from the Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda crossover title, Hyrule Warriors. These toys can be considered official Hyrule Warriors merchandise, as they are officially licensed by Nintendo.

These figurines will be representations of Link, Princess Zelda, Ganondorf, and Lana. An interesting detail is that the Twilight Princess version of Ganondorf has been chosen over his Hyrule Warriors design for the figurine...

If you're a fan of one of the most popular bands of all time, The Beatles, or have heard one of of their more popular songs, "Eleanor Rigby," then you're in for a treat. A cover of "Eleanor Rigby" has surfaced on YouTube, but it has been produced to sound like it came right out of A Link to the Past.

I could not believe my eyes when I saw the title of the video: The Beatles and Zelda? That's a combination that I'm sure I've never thought of, but here it is: an astonishing crossover between a song and a video game...

It's no secret that the Super Smash Bros. community is alive and kickin', with a decently healthy split of players who still enjoy Melee while another big crowd has moved onto Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. While the competitive scene is alive and well in both iterations of the series, it's the fan modding community that gets the spotlight today. Sometime ago, a massive fan project known as Project M went public. Project M was a modified version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl that aimed to make the gameplay more like Melee, and it didn't even require the hacking of your Wii console to enjoy it...
