Update: Nintendo has uploaded the commercial to their own YouTube page now, in much better quality and with "Available Now" replaced with the date of its release. Head past the jump if you want to see the confirmed-official TV commercial for Hyrule Warriors!

Original: We're but a few weeks away from Hyrule Warriors' release in North America (Japan got it a month ago, and Europe will get it a week from now), so it's about time we start seeing some commercials for the game on the air, don't you think? Good news is that we've got one...

Warning: This post contains footage of unlockable characters. If you do not wish to have the game spoiled, do not continue beyond this point.

Super Smash Bros. is out in Japan, which means that all of the details on the game are available to us. While we still have a few weeks until the game releases in the West, the guys at GameXplain have put together a video showing off the Final Smash for every character in the game. As previously stated, if you do not want anything spoiled for the game then...

Now that Super Smash Bros. has released in Japan and some U.S. players have gotten their hands on a demo code via Club Nintendo Platinum Memberships, players are getting a feel for how some of the characters play. Ever since the announcement of the Villager, fans have been waiting to smile gleefully as they wail on their opponents. The Villager's moves consist of dropping bowling balls, chopping down trees, and putting opponents' attacks in his pocket. The latter ability has proven to be more useful than previously thought as shown in the video...

Week 2 of Nintendo's "Super Smashing Sale" is here, and the next batch of games have been discounted on the eShop. This week features titles from the Legend of Zelda series as well as Fire Emblem, Mega Man, and others which we discussed earlier this week. We now have the official promotional video for the sale, which you can watch inside. If you are unaware of the titles that some of your favorite Smash characters come from, you can get a quick glimpse into what made them a part of Nintendo history from the video...

Yesterday, during Nintendo's Live at the Treehouse event, they announced a number of new things regarding Super Smash Bros., not the least exciting of which being the news that a demo would be coming to the West – that very day. Admittedly non-Platinum members will have to wait until next Friday to get a taste of the brawler, but the news of a widespread demo in and of itself, particularly for a series as important to Nintendo as Super Smash Bros., could signal a new approach for...

I've been rocking our review copy of Hyrule Warriors practically non stop the past week, but there is actually a Game Mode that will be available day one that I cannot play right now. That mode is called Challenge Mode, a new mode added through an update in Japan and a day one update in North America. As they describe it themselves, it's a bit like Adventure Mode on steroids. You don't fail the missions, but instead keep getting presented various challenges and tasks to complete that really challenge your skill set...

If you want to ask Aonuma about Hyrule Warriors, now's your chance! You need only submit a question here, and Mr. Aonuma himself may answer it...

A few weeks ago, a rather convincing leak came out that purportedly was showing the entire final roster for Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS. While it had quite a few things going for it, many found ways to argue against it (e.g. general appearance, odd characters, etc.). One character in particular raised plenty of eyebrows and was heralded as a reason that this leak couldn't possibly be true. Thanks to those currently streaming early copies of the game, however, we now know that this character is coming...

Brace yourselves, all; the release of Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS is upon us. True, the official release of the first iteration of this entry in the Smash Bros. series is this Friday, September 13th, but at least one very lucky gamer has gotten their hands on the game before the official street date release. This gamer has been kind enough (and fortunate enough) to live stream his progress in the game and show us not only hours of gameplay, but a few reveals as well. He has tackled Classic mode a few times, and although he failed the fight a few times, he eventually...

I know around these parts IGN isn't necessarily viewed in a positive light, but when they happen to do something interesting when talking about Zelda it's almost always worth taking a look at it. Be it fan voting, editorials, or in this case a nice video feature. They break down the visual history of Link, and frankly they do a great job. It's neat see how much (or little) he has truly changed over the years and when certain aspects of his garb were introduced. Of course the feature isn't 100% perfect, but I'm the guy that mispronounced "Hylian" and "Fi". No one's perfect...
