We mentioned before that Nintendo of America would be releasing information about Twilight Princess HD on their The Legend of Zelda facebook page. The first real substantial bit of information has finally come out along with four screenshots that show off some rather impressive stuff. Of course we've seen a bit of the inventory in action via various trailers, but we now know some additional information about how maps work. Beyond that however I really am focusing in on the Goron Mines screenshot. it is arguably the most impressive screenshot...

The Twilight Princess Manga by Akira Himekawa has released in Japan via Manga-One. While an English version doesn't exist and there isn't one planned in the future just yet, there is a history of Akira Himekawa's work eventually getting translated for an English audience. That being said, Akira Himekawa has been releasing some pages and bits of art from the manga on their Facebook page. The art itself depicts Zant, Midna, and then a special colored advert from the official Zelda twitter account for the Manga with Link and the children from Ordon Village...

There have always been differences in opinion when it comes to Zelda speed running. Some gamers enjoy doing or watching glitched runs because they want to see/play through all the ins and outs of a Zelda game. Others disagree and believe that any form of a time trial-style run of the game should be done in a more traditional, glitchless kind of way. The most recent speed run of a title from the Zelda series will please the latter as a world record has been made on an iconic Zelda game...

We've certainly had a lot to cover in regards to Twilight Princess HD, which makes sense given the game is releasing in less than a month. One aspect that was extremely intriguing for those who like a challenge is the double damage mechanic offered by the Ganondorf amiibo. While this was a nice addition, Hero Mode's have traditionally done the same thing... and it does in this game as well...

Nintendo has just uploaded a new action-packed video trailer for the upcoming Wii U remake, Twilight Princess HD. In this three-minute trailer, Nintendo calls this game the "definitive edition." It certainly looks that way, as Nintendo shows off their own graphic comparison right off the bat to show just how much Twilight Princess has improved in the visual department.

Also shown off are new GamePad functions, such as interactive mini-maps and switching between items on the fly...

The very first Zelda title, The Legend of Zelda for NES, is on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Because it's so famous, it is commonly on the top list for eShop sales. It's no surprise that this classic piece of gaming history is one of this week's best-sellers regarding software downloads on Nintendo's current generation handheld system...

Twilight Princess HD is just around the corner and instead of releasing new information, Nintendo of Japan hosted a twitter poll asking fans who they thought was the Heroine of Twilight Princess HD. It's obvious to anyone who has played the title already, but if you haven't yet consider this your spoiler warning. Naturally the Twilight Princess herself, Midna, took the poll. However, the surprising part is that Midna only garnered 50% of the vote while Princess Zelda chimed in with 39%. Here are the final results...

Last week, the Nintendo 3DS Zelda/Dynasty Warriors crossover title Hyrule Warriors Legends claimed the third spot for Japan's weekly gaming charts. This week, Legends still holds on to the list, but has fallen down to the 13th spot. We also get a look at how many units the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U have sold. They are doing quite nicely compared to the Xbox One, but the PS4 still dominates at #1...

One great aspect of this generation in video game consoles is that there are many Zelda titles available to download on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. If you've been visiting Zelda Informer for any length of time, you most likely know that each week there are at least a few Zelda adventures on the software charts. This week is no exception for the Wii U, as three such adventures have wound up on the list. It's nice to see these older Zelda games getting the continued love they deserve...
