Just in case you like some light reading to go along with your button mashing, Prima is providing games with just the thing when Super Smash Bros. for Wii U comes around later this year. Already confirmed to be releasing a collector's edition guide for Hyrule Warriors upon its release, we have just received news that the big name fighting game will be receiving a very similar treatment with two different guides. Following the status quo of Prima guides, one is a paperback guide while the other...

Dreams. Hopes. Desires. All of these have been crushed. Yes, those looking to see Skyward Sword's main villain, Ghirahim, enter the Smash Bros. fighting ring as a fighter will have to try again in another 5+ years as he's making an appearance as an Assist Trophy. 

"No, I'll just beat you within an inch of your life!" Demon Lord Ghirahim makes an appearance in Smash Bros!! He's an Assist Trophy, so he could conceivably back up Link, too." -Sakurai

No one really dislikes a sale, but I think it's fair to feel a little off put when one is excluded from it. While there's not anything explicitly stating that it's on purpose, the Smash Bros. "Veteran Fighters" eShop sale beginning today in Europe does not include any of the games in the Legend of Zelda series. As saddening as this is for folks who've been waiting for the perfect excuse to finally play The Wind Waker HD, The Legend of Zelda, or Link's Awakening DX, among other titles, there are a number of great games from other series up for sale...

As if the potential leak today wasn't enough, we have the latest scans out of Famitsu Magazine that feature Smash Bros. today. The scans themselves primarily focus on Meta Knight and Pacman and we're happy to have 3 of the 4 pages translated for your viewing. I don't inherently see a lot of new information here, but it's still a solid read and worth your time if you happen to be a big Smash fan...

Today we have what many are considering to be one of the most legit leaks for the new Smash Bros. games to date, though honestly they can't be legit until proven to be true. Right now there is evidence going both ways as to the validity of this leak and it's far too close to call definitively. I personally think they are 100% fake - but I am in the minority and seemingly for pretty good reasons. I'm not here to decide for you but for you to look at the given information and decide for yourself. All of the images associated with the leak are below in the gallery.

First week sales have arrived for Hyrule Warriors out of Japan and like all numbered statistics, you can interpret them in many different ways. Personally I'll start by saying this: The sales weren't great, but they weren't horrible either. Hyrule Warriors finished at #2 for the week behind a rather popular Japanese 3DS game. That's certainly nothing to be ashamed of in the land that values mobile and handheld gaming devices more than home console. The only question now that I have is if these sales will fall off or show some consistency week to week, like Mario Kart 8...

As it turns out, Koei Tecmo and Nintendo listen to their fans, as Zant and Ghirahim are only playable specifically because fans wanted them to be. The original plan was just to have them be enemy characters and nothing more, but fans spoke loud and clear - so I suppose I should be thanking all of you for finally letting me be Lord Deb... I mean Ghirahim. Of course this is the point where fans wish Koei Tecmo and Nintendo had listened even more, since we're all still waiting for the Groose to be loose...

Hey there, and welcome to one of the many weekly features at Zelda Informer! Each week, the best comments from our Daily Debates are rounded up by yours truly and displayed right here. These comments will range from silly and novelty to interesting and insightful. This time around, there were some nice discussions about GanondorfZelda, and Hyrule Warriors...

It's generally no secret by now that GameXplain does a great job covering various aspects of Nintendo games, including analysis and speculation of game trailers. While they gave us their thoughts back during E3, today they are presenting the prevalent observations and ideas presented by the fans. Some of these our own fans have noted as well, such as the fact that Link does indeed have a sword. Of course there are things we didn't notice either. As an example, did you know there is a cave entrance out in the field? I know I didn't...

So our crowdsource has been slowly trudging along and we've got nearly 10% of what we need as of this post. Here's what we're going to do today though. We're making a dakimakura of Lonk. What's a dakimakura you ask? A body pillow with a character on both sides! And who is Lonk? You've probably seen him around on StreetPass and our facebook page lately. Yes, we're seriously making this and you can win the only Dakimakura that we'll print of it. We'll be streaming the creation of a Lonk Dakmikura, but it will mainly just be the sketch with some minor rendering. Here's how it works in terms of the Dakimakura.

Every dollar donated will get you 1 "ticket" towards winning the Dakimakura. So if you donate $6 you'll get 6 tickets meaning your chances of winning are 1% at the absolute least. We're only going to offer 600 tickets. If you donated before you still get tickets. But we'll still keep the previous commissions from before so not only do you get tickets towards winning a Dakimakura, but you get a drawing based on how much you donated.
