Just like in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, there will be a masterpiece mode in which you can play the classic games from which the fighters in Smash originate. In the newest iteration of Smash, there are two Legend of Zelda games included, those games being...

We've got some great news for those of you anxiously waiting for a reason to get back into Hyrule Warriors.  Today, Eiji Aonuma, director of Hyrule Warriors took to Miiverse to give fans an update regarding the second DLC pack for the game: The Twilight Princess Pack.  In addition to letting it drop that the much-anticipated addition will be releasing globally next Thursday, November 27th, he was kind enough to tell fans exactly which character they'll be able to play as, noting that...

With the release of the fantastic The Legend of Zelda x Mario Kart DLC last week for Mario Kart 8, it's clear that Nintendo has come to terms with a feature of modern gaming that many of us love to hate. While those who have played the aforementioned pack are unlikely to say this was a mistake, this Friday will see the release of a new Nintendo experiment in North America; and it's name is amiibo...

An interesting addition to the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the Gamecube adapter, which some lucky gents already have their hands on. Since most hardcore Smash Bros. fans love playing with the Gamecube controller this should be an interesting addition to the line of accessories purchasers will be getting their hands on in as little as one week.

Today, they released a video...

We all fondly remember the Captain Toad side missions in Super Mario 3D World, but apparently the entire concept for these was intended to star The Legend of Zelda's hero... Link. The chief reason?

Since the Mario characters are all known for jumping, his mind floated to the Zelda series, where Link cannot jump by standard means. The idea and concepts for this game eventually floated to Miyamoto, who thought initially it was an idea for a physical product (a board game perhaps?). When the game was presented...

Rejoice, Mario Kart 8 fans! The first DLC pack has now been released, alongside the 3.0 update, adding amiibo support to the game...

Famitsu managed to sequeeze in a couple questions about Zelda U during it's interview this week... and Eiji Aonuma replied. Of course we are going to read between the lines on this, but here is the rough version based on a translation. Eiji Aonuma is claiming that Zelda U looks even better than it did when shown off at E3. In fact, here are some exact quotes on that:
