Nintendo has done a lot of great things for me as a fan of their games and hardware. The New Nintendo 3DS XL is everything I wanted it to be, improving my experience with the system and conversely with the games. Majora's Mask 3D has been a joy to play up to this point, and Splatoon is quickly approaching arrival, a game I am looking forward to playing with and against all of you on our live stream nights. However, not everything is perfect in Nintendo world, so today I am presenting you with 3 major reasons I am frustrated with Nintendo right now. I hope this year, with Zelda U...

It was revealed a few days ago that a playable giant Cucco could be unlocked in Hyrule Warriors via the Boss Pack. True to previous patterns, various fans are uploading footage of this monstrous beast in action, trampling over 5,000 enemies and crushing bosses like they were nothing.

The videos above were recorded on a Japanese copy of the game. Japan always seems to tease us with upcoming content that we in the West don't have yet...

I want to start this by saying to not get your hopes too high, the chances of Zelda U releasing this Spring is roughly .000001% chance of occurring. By Fi standards, you're screwed. According to MyNintendNews, who provided visual evidence, GameStop Italy is advertising Zelda U as a Spring 2015 release. While retailers often are privy to some release information long before the public is, GameStop in North America is still listing it as a December 31st release (aka, this year... at some point to be determined)...

When you look at this image of Link, what colors make up his clothing? Think you know the answer? Well, what if I told you that the internet just can't decide on the colors of this mysterious garment? These are the Hero's New Clothes, and no one can agree on their actual color. Some say the outfit is simply blue and white, but others swear they see a different set of colors. Through countless hours of heated arguments and fruitless analyses, we still can't figure it out. No matter how sick we are of these types of arguments, we still want a good reason why each person perceives the Hero's New Clothes differently...

UPDATE: The data gathered and analyzed for this particular playthrough of Skyward Sword will not be included in my final evaluation of Handholding in 3D Zelda Games on Home Consoles because it was not held to the same standard as my audits of Twilight Princess, Ocarina of Time, and The Wind Waker. As a result, my verdict in the Hey, Look, Listen series has been delayed and a new article that reanalyzes handholding in Skyward Sword will be released once I can complete another playthrough of the game and write an analysis.

This decision has less to do with the fact that my first analysis of Skyward Sword excluded certain elements from consideration (listed in the Other Handholding Factors part of this article) and more to do with the fact that I did not judge Skyward Sword by the same criteria as I judged later games in this series. As a result, I am strongly considering a second playthrough of Majora’s Mask for the same reasons...

Welcome to yet another Miiverse Highlights: Zelda Informer's Thursday Weekly Feature! Two weeks ago we held a #WeeklyPoll in which we continued to celebrate Majora's Mask 3D's release by asking everyone what their favorite character was from the game. Now that it's Thursday once more, it's my duty to take the most-voted character and find the absolute best art and screenshots I can find of them in all of Miiverse...

Hyrule Warriors' next DLC pack, the Boss Pack, is set for release on March 12th here in the United States. The DLC has already been released in Europe and Japan, so some fans are demolishing foes as Beast Ganon in the new "Ganon's Fury" game mode as we speak. Japanese Entertainment has recently released some gameplay footage of this new mode on YouTube, and it would seem Koei Tecmo wasn't lying when they said players can "rain chaos and destruction upon the battlefield" as Ganon...

It's been known for a while that Ganon will be playable in the newest DLC for Hyrule Warriors, the Boss Pack. Little did we know there would be a second new character! Luckily, YouTube user moccos-tan Isedelica has uploaded footage of this new playable character in action.

Any guesses on who it is? No, unfortunately it is not Skull Kid. It is, in fact, a giant Cucco. That's right, you can now trample through enemies like no tomorrow with a monstrous Cucco...

For those unaware, there exists a glitch in Hyrule Warriors that will instantly reward you with the maximum amount of rupees that can be held at any one time. This is a very interesting glitch that many players want to take advantage of, because, as you may or may not be aware, you can level up all your characters to the max level of your highest level character simply by paying rupees. This can get extremely expensive, especially as they have been consistently releasing new characters along the way...

Hyrule Warriors' final piece of announced DLC, titled the Boss Pack, has released in both Europe and Japan. It will arrive here in the United States on March 12th. In celebration of the release, there is a brand new launch trailer, which shows off the new Boss mode and Ganon as a playable character. Arguably the best part of the trailer comes right at the end where Ganon uses a finisher on King Dodongo with an epic trident strike. Plus there is some cute post-trailer 8-bit action, but I'll let you watch first...
