This weeks podcast features yours truly, with our regular co-host Alfred back in his usual spot as a ZI Podcast first timer joins us. This weeks podcast finally gets to put to rest the seemingly endless gender debate, thanks in large part to Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto. Speaking from a very personal level with this, I am glad that this will be the last time this topic comes up on Zelda Informer. We also finally learn about and discuss the causes behind delays in Zelda game release dates...

Nintendo has been steadily moving forward with its plans to extend beyond the realm of video games. The company is currently partnering with Universal to produce Nintendo attractions for Universal Studios Japan and, as we learned yesterday, it is currently in talks with a partner with which to make movies together. Though it was safe to assume that Nintendo would make use of its popular IP in these ventures, the company did us favor during last night's investor meeting by confirming that Nintendo IP would in fact be utilized in "theme parks, character goods, and film contents"...

We're tipping our caps to our favorite current handheld, the 3DS, as it surpasses 60 million units sold worldwide...

There have been quite a few Zelda film projects over the years. Some succeeded and were publicized while others were shut down or lost to the sands of time. One of the most infamous success stories is that of the fan film Hero of Time by BMB Finishes. While it did not receive critical acclaim, nor was it the best movie ever, it was one of the few fan projects that actually made it far, going so far as to make it into a few theaters. Other projects have either been shut down by Nintendo or just abandoned...

Reddit user u/teekayjames compiled a gallery of images from the Breath of the Wild's playthrough that Nintendo did and compared them to some screenshots from Ocarina of Time. It appears that the ruins seen in the Treehouse Playthrough are reminiscent of Castle Town from the Nintendo 64 classic...

During Nintendo's 76th Annual Meeting of Shareholders, there was a question asked about the possibility of Nintendo jumping into the virtual reality trend that has been popping up in other video game companies. Unfortunately, the answer that was given by Tatsumi Kimishima, President of Nintendo, could be disappointing to some fans...

There are a lot of debates surrounding motion controls in the Zelda franchise. In the middle of these debates stands this question: Are they a good idea or do they ruin the game experience? MatPat from Game Theory enlisted the president of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime, to try and find a verdict to this debate. Both sides make some very good arguments, but at the end no verdict is given...
