The Collectible Badge Center, a 3DS application that can be downloaded via the Nintendo eShop, is unfortunately a Japan exclusive. That doesn't mean we can't admire these new The Wind Waker HD themed badges though, does it?

If you're lost on what The Collectible Badge Center does, it allows you to play a certain minigame three times a day...

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...

One aspect of any Zelda game that we are all familiar with is the frustration and confusion that goes hand in hand with trying to solve an arduous puzzle. You can sink hours and hours into trying to find a solution with no luck. Now, what if the challenge was incorporated into real life?

USAopoly™, having released two Zelda puzzles previously, are set to release a new Majora's Mask-themed 550 piece jigsaw puzzle according to EB Games

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...

Fans anxiously waited outside the Nintendo World Store on May 1st to get their hands on the reissue of the A Link to the Past graphic novel before anyone else! For those of us that were unable to attend the event, we have YouTuber KirbyGCN17 to thank for a taste of the experience! He was kind enough to film a large part of the event so we can kick back and watch it all unfold from home...

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...

Hyrule Warriors has been a huge success for both Nintendo and Koei Tecmo. Not only has it joined the the short list for million sellers on the Wii U, it became arguably Koei Tecmo's best selling game over the last fiscal year. It's safe to say that the game was largely a huge success for both Dynasty Warrior fans and Zelda fans alike. What's even neater in all of this is that while we have the raw 1 million unit figure, in an interview with Famitsu Koei Tecmo admitted that the game is still selling today, both the game itself and the DLC. While this is nothing new for Nintendo games...
