Happy birthday to Majora's Mask! The popular sequel to Ocarina of Time turned 15 today. The N64 title was first released on April 27, 2000, just two years after Ocarina of Time...  

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses - Master Quest has continued its tour throughout North America and Europe. With exciting new songs and movements, the concert series has let fans around the world hear their favorite tunes conducted live. In promotion of the new Zelda Symphony series, executive producer Jason Michael Paul recently sat down with Zelda Universe to discuss the current tour and Symphony of the Goddesses' future plans...

Nintendo announced in their last major Nintendo Direct a new feature coming from amiibo called amiibo Tap, currently only used in a new app coming out called Greatest Bits. The idea is that you can tap an amiibo to your Wii U and play highlighted scenes featuring Nintendo classics, from Super Mario World to A Link to the Past. The caveat is a time limit restriction, but tapping different amiibo can lead to playing different scenes from the games. The interesting part about this is that it doesn't matter what amiibo you own, the game that gets selected is completely random...

It turns out that Majora's Mask 3D is a word wide sales success. While the game itself was released in the middle of February world wide, it is still continuing to sell extremely well in the weeks and now months since. While we all knew it was selling really well locally here in the United States, we now know that it's selling just as well in Europe, as Majora's Mask 3D has achieved the Gold BIU Sales Award in Germany for selling over 100,000 units. There are two award tiers higher than gold, with platinum meaning 200k while black translates to 500k. Still, for the month...

We try to make a habit around here to not talk too much about games that aren't related to the Zelda franchise, but we're making a special case here not only because the new update today provides two new Zelda stamps, but because we host tournament streams regularly for this game and will be hosting our very first 200cc tournament next week! That being said, the latest Mario Kart DLC pack has arrived today along with the free 200cc update. While new stamps were always a given, we certainly didn't expect two new Zelda related stamp...

Update: photo discovered on the timeline of twitter user ChrisX930, a friend of the original poster, three days earlier shows that the arrival of Twilight Princess 3D was merely a hack. 

Is Twilight Princess 3D happening? We've had it rumored in the past but haven't really heard anything since... until now. It appears folks at a recent Zelda Symphony performance streetpassed someone playing Twilight Princess 3D - presumably someone that works for Nintendo at the event. We have multiple pictures taken of the streetpass seemingly confirming it. Obviously this could be a big ruse, but we have reputable people mentioning it, such as the folks behind Nintendo Domination. So we can't be 100% certain, but this is the biggest suggestion we've had that this is happening...

Most of us may not have a Japanese Nintendo 3DS, but that doesn't mean we can't drool over the new Zelda pins available in the Badge Center app on the 3DS eShop! This latest set is packed full of characters, enemies, items, and terrain from the original Legend of Zelda on NES...

The Nintendo World store in New York City recently announced a special launch event for the reprint of the A Link to the Past graphic novel by Shotaro Ishinomori. As if there wasn't enough festivities for West Coast fans to be jealous of, Nintendo World revealed through Instagram that an exclusive poster will be available to those purchasing the reprinted graphic novel. That's right, in addition to a Q&A and a gallery of Ishinomori's amazing artwork, the first 1,000 purchasers of the reprint will receive this exclusive poster...

Majora's Mask 3D is assuredly going to move more than a million units here in North America, as Nintendo is reporting 184,000 sales for the game last month with 730,000 sold all together. World Wide sales are likely around 2 million right now, though we can't confirm the international figures just yet. Either way, this game certainly has the long term potential of outselling Ocarina of Time 3D assuming it can find a consistent sales figure month to month down the line...

Nintendo and Viz Media are launching the official A Link to the Past graphic novel as written by Shotaro Ishinomori. It was first released as a series of of "comics" in Nintendo Power Magazine, but later collected to create this graphic novel. The Nintendo World Store has decided to host a launch party for the novel, which releases on May 1st. The party will include light refreshments, a cake cutting ceremony, a Q and A session with someone from Viz Media (who compiled the graphic novel), and it will feature a gallery of color prints from the novel itself...
