We all get inspired by great things: The Legend of Zelda comes to mind, for example. . Many have done wonders with that influence, writing fanfiction, creating beautiful works of art, or even naming their own children in honor of its source (Looking at you, Zelda Williams). One such imaginative individual is indie author J Washburn (yes, his name is not an abbreviation, but is really J), who is asking for $1000 in pledges for his new Kickstarter project. The campaign is for a fantasy novel with a tale that isn't a far cry from the series we love. The synopsis gives pretty good...

Thanks to YouTube recently launching 60fps support for both Google Chrome and Safari, we can now see Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as we will see it on our home TV's. We have a direct feed video for you, but to watch it in 60 fps you need to set the video to HD and be using one of the two previously mentioned browsers. The video includes a few 4 player matches, some 8 player mayhem, and a slew of stages. Some of you may consider this content to be spoilery, but then again, why are you watching Smash Bros. videos otherwise...

Say hello to our new weekly feature called "The Boss Man". The Boss Man is a talk/opinion show we'll be throwing up every Sunday featuring myself, the "Boss Man" of Zelda Informer. There are a few rules for this show, but you'll have to actually watch our first episode to find out what those are. This week I tackle my Top 5 Thingamajiggers in Zelda. 

Currently all video editing work is completed by myself, so if you're interested in being the editor for this show every week... feel free to speak up in the comment section. I am also currently...

Nick Robinson of Rev3Games, one of the top resources for video games on YouTube, sat down with Chastity Vicencio to discuss Ocarina of Time in this week's Coffee Talk. Chastity revealed that she has never played the game before and finally decided to pick up the 3DS version of the title. In fact, the only other Zelda game that she has played was A Link to the Past. However, the discussion spends little time on Ocarina of Time. After talking about how far into the game they are, they hit on topics from other titles in the series and why it's an exciting time to be a fan of the Zelda series...

Eggbusters is back (okay, they never really left) with another video tackling glitches in a Zelda game. For those who aren't aware, Eggbusters is a show that tackles supposed glitches in various games as claimed by the internet and then confirms or deconfirms if they work. Then, if it does work, they try and see everything you can possibly do with the glitch itself. One of their most popular episodes ever actually involved some very neat glitches from Twilight Princess. The person who does the videos does tend to fangasm over Skyward Sword's beauty (and hey, we totally understand!)...

A YouTuber by the name of ProJared got hands on with the new Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and has uploaded some of his experience with the game's new features. These short videos, due to time constraints with Nintendo, give us a little more insight into some of the things that weren't detailed in the "50-Fact Extravaganza". Among all of the really high quality footage, he also confirms that a single Wii U console can use two Gamecube Controller Adapters simultaneously. While this was something to be expected, considering each adapter needs two USB ports and the console has four, it is nice to hear that the game does support the possibility. You can watch...

Nintendo has been releasing strings of videos throughout the day, making sure anything that was not covered in yesterday's Super Smash Bros. livestream event becomes clear. Alongside these other videos, Nintendo uploaded a new Amiibo trailer presenting us not only with new information about eight player smash and how Amiibo works, but also some notable adjustments have been made to Link's Amiibo figure. If we compare the old version of Link's Amiibo to...

Henry Gilbert from GamesRadar got a hands on look at Super Smash Bros. for Wii U's eight player mode. According to Henry, the mode is just as completely insane as it looks at first glance, but he think's that's a good thing. What usually seemed to happen with eight simultaneous smashers was that the players would split up into small groups to battle in different parts of the stage and then eventually everyone converges in the middle for a chaotic free-for-all fight...

Edit: Gallery with screenshots added!

Not only will Super Smash Bros. for Wii U have more and bigger stages, but there will even be a brand new type of stage created for this particular entry: foreground-background stages. As the name suggests, these stages have two levels to them - one in the front and one towards the "back" - and fighters can battle in either or both of these areas.  The first (and perhaps the only) stage shown to demonstrate this capability is the Jungle Hijinks stage from the Donkey Kong series, in which...

Earlier, we told you about a Halloween-themed The Legend of Zelda 3DS theme hitting the Japanese e-Shop. Now, a Skyward Sword 3DS theme has also been announced for the e-Shop, over on Nintendo of Japan's YouTube channel...
