Well April Fool’s day has come and gone and with it, Reggie Fils-Aime has departed from us, hoping to refocus his efforts on future Nintendo marketing plans. Reggie Informer day was something myself and a couple former staff members cooked up many years ago but we just never had the ability to pull it off in a way that felt just right.

For years we’ve gone the easy route – creating fake, somewhat believable, stories. Fans ate them up, thousands believed them, and it’s hilarious watching those stories go viral. Still, we always felt that you deserved better. That we could do better. As we approach ZI’s 8th birthday (seriously, we’ve been at this 8 years!) we wanted to finally take an old idea and make it a reality.

Earlier this week, IGN released a Nintendo Voice Chat commentary highlighting a few of the features found in Majora's Mask that they'd like to see carried over to the upcoming Zelda U title, which was delayed until 2016...

We’re ready to do our first major hiring spree in 2015. If you have ever dreamed of working at one of the largest Zelda websites in the world, this is your chance to get your foot in the door. We have several positions that we are looking to add to in order expand the quality and wealth of content at our site. Did you know we do more than just covering news stories and sharing our opinions? Crazy, right....

Play Asia, one of the retailers that is selling the New Nintendo 3DS Majora's Mask Edition, is not letting customers pre-order the console just yet. I had my order cancelled from Best Buy due to lack of stock, so I spoke with a Play Asia service representative today about their MM3DS date of availability...

Nintendo of Greece has announced the pre-order bonuses for MM3D. In a translated excerpt from Nintendo's website, it states:

"Those who pre-order the 3DS The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask from Nortec.gr will additionally take a Necklace Majora's Mask. * H Special Edition of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask includes a specially designed Steelbook ™ , a copy of the game in his own standalone package..."

2015 is here and we at Zelda Informer couldn’t be more excited to begin our journey together. This year promises to be one of the best years in recent memory for Zelda fans, and that’s saying something considering the year we had in 2011 with Ocarina of Time 3D and Skyward Sword releasing, plus 2013 where we had The Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds.

What about this year makes it stand out? The biggest ticket is our first ever original Zelda title in HD. We’ve never previously had a game release that could claim that, and then add on top of the promise of an open world – it may very well be one of the most anticipated Zelda releases since Twilight Princess. We are also getting a remake, with Majora’s Mask 3D arriving in the first half of the year...

Every day we have great conversations with many of you here on the site in our comment section and through our various social media outlets. The problem with most of this conversation, while fruitful, is that it's disconnected. While that's the nature of the internet at times (despite social media's best intentions), I feel there is a way we can all communicate more thoroughly...

Once in a great while I like to have an open conversation with our fans on the state of Zelda Informer as it stands today and give an open address as to what our plans are for the future. We do this to try and maintain some semblance of responsibility (hard to be held accountable when no one outside of the staff actually know what we’re doing) and because we want all of you involved with us, helping shape our future beyond a comment here or there or a click on our latest wiki editorial or news piece.

Getting right into it, I wanted to let you guys know what we have planned for the rest of this year and 2015.

Hey everyone! It's that time again when we begin to look for more fresh blood to add to our growing staff ranks. Rather than simply tell you what we're looking for this time around, I'm going to go the extra mile and explain each position as thoroughly as possible. In addition I'll explain some of the benefits of working at Zelda Informer that our current staff get to enjoy and that future staff are sure to enjoy as well! We're looking for folks for several different positions, so chances are if you've ever wanted to dive in and work at one of the largest The Legend of Zelda fan sites on the internet... we probably have a position that's just right for you!

Some time ago we implemented some rules for our commenting policy. However, this was done so long ago I feel a lot was lost in translation. We're also a lot more popular now and serving far more people, so I felt now was as good of a time as any to remind people of just what we expect your behavior to be when talking to other people, and what happens should you go against that policy. If I was to simply crack down and enforce our policy as is without warning, over half the commenters on this article (which they are just debating Wii U vs 3DS), would be banned from commenting. I felt that was too harsh to push forward and there were far too many to warn and talk to individually.
