Fairies have been part of the Zelda series since the game was first released in Japan back in 1986. They have appeared not only in the 17 main games in the series, but plenty of side games, such as Hyrule Warriors, the Tingle series, and the CD-i games. They even made an appearance in the official Zelda cartoon series and naturally the manga. Fairies are probably just as prevalent in nearly every title as Link himself is. MasterOfHyrule has put together a new video featuring every single interation of the fairy from 1986's original title release through Hyrule Warriors...

Everyone knows that Zelda U has been delayed outside of a 2015 release and will not be at E3 this year. So to quell the silence of news about the game, many fans are coming up with new theories in an attempt to defend the delay. This is the internet so there are some negative opinions, but many are tying to take a positive outlook on the situation. The people at Zoomin TV Games on YouTube have come up with 5 reasons why Zelda U being delayed is a good thing. Check out the video above to get some insight on why they believe the delay can only aid...

A company called Takara in Japan has opened pre-orders for 4 new Hyrule Warriors figures for a relatively cheap price. It features 4 of the most prominent characters in the game. The full set runs for just $17.09 through Ebay, but as they say you get what you pay for. These appear to be a big step up from the figures found in gacha balls, but a clear step back from amiibo. As you can see on the image inside, these figures are not necessarily the greatest looking ones out there. Still, I may buy one just so I can get Lana. I just don't see an amiibo of her happening at all...

Nintendo released a video announcing their E3 plans today, just like they did last year with Reggie Fils-a-mech. This year featured Reggie himself heavily again, but they changed up the format to unveil something I feel like no one expected. Sure, they announced another Nintendo Digital Event on June 16th at 9 am PT, and yeah they are doing more Nintendo Treehouse live stream - all par for the course and expected. They even announced another Best Buy limited time demo opportunity, this time for Mario Maker. You know what wasn't expected? The return...

Earlier today, Nintendo of America announced on Twitter that they will be revealing their E3 2015 schedule tomorrow, May 13, at 9 AM PT.

Included in the Tweet was a hooded man who appears to be training alongside some gym equipment. The picture is quite fitting, as Nintendo captioned the picture with...

During a Q and A session, Mr. Iwata stated pretty openly that they are looking at making the NX system become region free. This is huge news for all fans of Nintendo, but especially for Zelda fans. With Nintendo deciding to expand their IPs even more, there is a high chance of more Zelda side games, including ones that aren't released word wide such as the Tingle series. With a region free system, that would allow gamers to import those games if they really want to play it without having to also buy a second system for that specific region. You can also see how this is a huge benefit...

Ocarina of Time is not only considered one of the best games of all time, it's also one of the single most popular games in the speed running community. The record has been set many times over the last handful of years, but when Cosmos set a run of 18:10, it was virtually deemed impossible to beat. He held that record for nearly 8 months before a new glitch (yes, new glitches are still be discovered) enabled a sub 18 minute run, first completed by Jodenstone...

It has been almost a year since the reveal trailer for Zelda U. During the end of last year, actual gameplay footage was shown last-minute to further whet our appetites for this highly-anticipated open world experience. It wasn't long ago that Eiji Aonuma specified that a 2015 release date for Zelda U was no longer the main goal, and that the game will not be shown during E3 2015...

Nintendo released their yearly financial report and things are looking up for both Nintendo and Zelda fans. The only Zelda game reported with official figures being updated was Majora's Mask 3D. So we still don't have any officially updated figures for The Wind Waker HD or A Link Between Worlds, but chances are sales have slowed down on those titles dramatically. What we do know is that as of today, Majora's Mask 3D has sold 2.03 million units across the globe. The game is well on the way to beating out known sales figures for A Link Between Worlds...

Have you ever wanted to go to a Nintendo theme park? That may now be a reality as Nintendo has partnered with Universal Parks and Resorts (yes, that same old Universal Studios folks). It is unclear if Universal would open a new Nintendo themed park or if they would simply expand upon the handful of parks they already have and add Nintendo sections to them. One thing is clear however - it's highly likely bits of Hyrule will be coming to life right before our eyes in the form of new merchandise at the parks, along with new themed rides and possibly even...
