Earlier, we told you about a Halloween-themed The Legend of Zelda 3DS theme hitting the Japanese e-Shop. Now, a Skyward Sword 3DS theme has also been announced for the e-Shop, over on Nintendo of Japan's YouTube channel...

Amiibo is slowly giving us more and more reasons to own them, as another game can be added to the list of support. Hyrule Warriors will be supporting the Link Amiibo at some point in the future and I would be shocked if Princess Zelda isn't too far behind. This also could open the door to more Zelda themed Amiibos such as Ganondorf or even Impa. How the figures will be used in game is unknown at this time but Nintendo promises to share more information about it soon. Could this be an indication that there is a general Nintendo Direct hitting in December...

So way back when we talked about the Link Nendoroid. At the time it was only announced to be coming (along with Luigi)... but that was over a year ago. Back in April we mentioned that he was available for preorder in Japan, along with a slew of exact details. Still, this was only useful if you planned to import, which can be fairly expensive. While the North American pre-orders have been available for a handful of months this year, regretfully we forgot to inform you about them...

If you enjoy keeping your 3DS intact, then you may be interested in this piece of art. The gaming hardware company HORI has released a new design to the multitude of 3DS cases. This particular design is a black and green hard case with a The Legend of Zelda theme. It sports a fairly happy looking 8-bit Link with arms raised as he holds a piece of the Triforce and 8-bit Triforce zippers. The case includes the allotted space that can fit a 3DS XL, 3DS, DSi XL or DSi system, also features a pocket space which fits up to six 3DS games. Finally the ...

Well, Hyrule Warriors' launch figures are now in for North America. 190,000 units combined (as in, retail and digital) were sold in North America from launch to today. While these aren't massive numbers, it combined with continued Mario Kart 8 sales helped boost Wii U sales nearly 50% over the previous month (August). While this may not necessarily be impressive on it's own, I would estimate the the game has now sold roughly 500k world wide, which isn't a bad starting point for a spin off title on a system that isn't owned by many. Time will tell if it can bring in a consistent 15 to 20k a week for a long stretch...

Back in September, we told you that Club Nintendo of Japan had received a new addition - the The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds soundtrack. Photographs of the soundtrack have now surfaced online, courteous of Twitter user, FarmboyInJapan...

Have you been dreaming of a steam punk world? How about an even faster travel method than Epona? It appears that Eiji Aonuma likes the Master Cycle in Mario Kart 8 so much that he wants to implement it into a game he is working on (which we all know right now is Zelda U). While this initially seems like a silly notion, this is the series that has had magical talking sail boats, a steam boat, and even a train. Add on that the series has lasers and other mystical (and mechanical) elements, it may not be as out of place as one would think. Here is what Eiji Aonuma had to say on Miiverse when talking...

Well, the DLC is almost here. In just over 30 minutes or so from the time of this post, the Master Quest DLC will arrive for Hyrule Warriors. This is exciting times as we get to kick some arse with Epona, make Cia look like a white goddess, and enjoy some very awesome new stages and maps for Legend Mode and Adventure Mode. We get one last teaser before we experience it first hand... and I can't wait. In fact I am only still awake so I can play with the new DLC right away. My excitement level is practically over 9000...

Today on Twitter, Nintendo UK announced that a new vehicle, the Master Cycle, is to be included in the first DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 for Nintendo Wii U...

Well, we're getting even more than we initially thought in 3 days when the Master Quest DLC pack arrives for Hyrule Warriors. We knew Epona was being added as a weapon, one new Legend Mode stage, and a whole new map for Adventure Mode... but what we're getting now goes far beyond that. What already looked like a pretty good DLC package just got better, as we now have finer details for it based on the packs individual listing on the European eShop. Such as the fact we'll be getting a bunch of new 8 bit weapons and five new stages for Legend Mode. Here's the full breakdown...
