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...

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...

For those who haven't been on the internet or watching any sort of news channel of late, Robin Williams has died from an apparent suicide. Many were saddened by his death and were wondering how we could possibly memorialize him and make him a permanent fixture of something he loved. Fans put together a petition for Nintendo to create a character and name it after Robin Williams in a future Zelda games. That petition at the time of this writing has 101,788 supporters. Polygon decided to ask Nintendo if they were going to listen to the fanbase on this, and surprisingly Nintendo responded...

More images from the official Japanese Hyrule Warriors art book have emerged. Along with the photos, we have also gathered up some translated details from within the book.

This post does contain spoilers, so it should be noted that if you do not want the game spoiled then this post is not for you. However, if that's not a concern for you...

For many Zelda fans, boss battles can be where all the real action is at. This may be true for folks playing Hyrule Warriors, as bosses generally provide the greatest challenge. We haven't really taken a good look at the various bigger boss battles in the game, so right now we'll take a look at the biggest bosses in the game (literally)...

BestinJapan is currently streaming Hyrule Warriors live on Twitch. It goes without saying that there will be spoilers for the game within the stream, so if you do not want any of that, this probably isn't for you. If you honestly don't care and just want to watch some solid gameplay, you can check it out right here on Zelda Informer. Also, he does speak English, just in case anyone was worried about that...

We're slowly working our way through chapters in our Hyrule Warriors Walkthrough, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be sharing with you the footage of these stages in the meantime for your enjoyment. It goes without saying that every single video post related to the game is going to contain spoilers, and this is no different. In fact, there are major story spoilers in this video...

Among its large—and still growing—library of impressive titles, the Nintendo 3DS is also home to two rather different, but similarly spectacular Zelda titles: Ocarina of Time 3D and A Link Between Worlds. The former a remake released in the dim, early days of the handheld, the latter a sequel released just last fall after such hits as Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. While Zelda titles tend to do rather well critically, sales can be a tougher point, making the commercial...

These sorts of lists are always a lot of fun and spark a ton of debate. With six games on the list, it's only fair we talk a bit about Empire Magazine's top 100 and chime in on our thoughts. Before we do that, however, it is only fair you get a chance to check out the entire list for yourself...
