Zelda games are almost always featured heavily on Nintendo's various eShop charts, but this week only one title remains on the Wii U's eShop charts - Ocarina of Time, which placed 13th in the overall digital sales department. No other Zelda related videos or games made it the list this week, but that doesn't preclude more titles from making the list in the future. It is notable that Twilight Princess HD is absent...

Upon the release of Twilight Princess HD, Wii U console and software sales have increased. Sales for the Wii U have reached over 12 million and continue to sell in Japan, and Nintendo is overall pleased with this increase, despite the number being less than the number of consoles sold in the past. Software sales in Japan have risen past 750,000 units after Twilight Princess HD's release...

This week in Hyrule, Nintendo decided to drop bombs... but they keep on forgetting what they wrote down, the whole crowd gets so loud... they open their mouths but the words won't come out. That is, words about any details regarding NX beyond a release date. This week Nintendo gave us so much to digest that we're sitting here on Saturday, several days after all the news hit, and we're still trying to digest it all. Matt recaps all of the happenings as best as we can as we look forward to more zany news in the future. Here is a rundown of the news this week...

In case you missed it, there was a ton of news this week. In fact, we've got a nice recap of this week's major stuff right here. So what do we think about all this crazy news? Well, your Editor-in-Chief (me) and your Managing Editor (Darrin) are here to give you our initial reactions to all the zaniness. There is so much to talk about, specifically with Zelda U now becoming Zelda U/NX, a new delay, and the release date for NX (before we even know anything about it no less). There is a lot to take in this week. What are your thoughts on all of this?

Greetings once again, Zelda Informer community. It's time for another edition of our weekly Photoshop Contest! I've noticed that the more recent contests have for some reason focused more on the male characters of the Zelda series. Even though we may see Princess Zelda in a few entries here and there, there hasn't been a contest completely devoted to Zelda's extended cast of strong female characters. We intend to change this problem today. Join the contest this week to celebrate characters like Zelda, Midna, Malon, Anju, and Telma, and see what went down in last week's contest: Psychedelic Screenshot...

A little while ago, Nintendo re-launched their Nintendo Selects program. This had already been in place for Wii titles, but players can now buy excellent Wii U and 3DS titles at a discounted price. If you don't know, the Nintendo Selects program is where Nintendo will choose titles of exceptional quality that sold well, re-package them in fancy red and gold boxes, and then sell them at a lower price than their regular versions, with the full game intact. I personally have never bought a title re-released under the Nintendo Selects...

After Nintendo reviewed its financial year and released the results, the company decided to create an "Audit/Supervisory Committee and Officer System," according to Nintendo Everything. This will give more power to Nintendo's Board of Directors. Nintendo of America president, Reggie Fils-Amie, and Nintendo of Europe president, Satoru Shibata, are to become executive officers in this new system of management. This new infrastructure should give Nintendo more ability to be corporately balanced... 

Japanese developer Koei Tecmo has collaborated with Nintendo several times over the last few years, having developed high-profile Wii U titles like Hyrule Warriors and Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water. With the two companies working so closely together in recent years, we were expecting to eventually hear news of Koei Tecmo working on Nintendo's next console, the NX. That news has finally been revealed, as an industry analyst confirmed on Twitter that Koei Tecmo has officially begun development on the NX...

As of April 14th, Zelda U jumped up on Famitsu's "Most Wanted" list. The game had 233 votes, which ranked it which ranked it at 5th place. Zelda U ranked above Yokai Watch 3, and just below Etrian Chronicles V. Zelda U is also one of the few console games to appear on the list. The entire list can be found as follows...

The 3DS eShop has released the top 20 list of both software, and videos. A Link To The Past made the number one spot on the software list, followed by Ocarina of Time 3D at number 12, and Hyrule Warriors Legends at number 15. Even though A Link To The Past trailer made it on number one on the video list, Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer made number 6.
