This week in Hyrule, Nintendo decided to drop bombs... but they keep on forgetting what they wrote down, the whole crowd gets so loud... they open their mouths but the words won't come out. That is, words about any details regarding NX beyond a release date. This week Nintendo gave us so much to digest that we're sitting here on Saturday, several days after all the news hit, and we're still trying to digest it all. Matt recaps all of the happenings as best as we can as we look forward to more zany news in the future. Here is a rundown of the news this week...

As of April 14th, Zelda U jumped up on Famitsu's "Most Wanted" list. The game had 233 votes, which ranked it which ranked it at 5th place. Zelda U ranked above Yokai Watch 3, and just below Etrian Chronicles V. Zelda U is also one of the few console games to appear on the list. The entire list can be found as follows...

The 3DS eShop has released the top 20 list of both software, and videos. A Link To The Past made the number one spot on the software list, followed by Ocarina of Time 3D at number 12, and Hyrule Warriors Legends at number 15. Even though A Link To The Past trailer made it on number one on the video list, Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer made number 6.

As of April 23rd, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD outsold The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on the UK Wii U eShop for the week. The Wind Waker HD was fourth on the list, whereas Twilight Princess HD was the tenth most purchased game. This is somewhat impressive, considering that The Wind Waker HD was released in 2013, and Twilight Princess HD was recently released a little over a month ago. One can only speculate the reasons behind this outranking. It could be because The Wind Waker HD recently went on sale because of becoming a Nintendo Select...

Yes, we know Zelda Wii U has been delayed to 2017 and is launching on both Wii U and NX. Most of the community has accepted that already. What we didn't know is when it would release — whether it would be along with the NX in March 2017, or later in the year. According to Nintendo, the former is true.

Nintendo of America's press website has updated with the new art shown off for Zelda Wii U, and next to it is the release date of March 2017...

Nintendo has officially recognized Zelda's 30th anniversary for the first time this year. There was some concern that Nintendo may not be doing anything with the anniversary this year given they didn't even recognize it on or around the actual anniversary date combined with the fact that Zelda U has now been delayed to 2017, but apparently that concern is no longer warranted. In their latest meeting of the shareholders, Nintendo ensured folks that there is more to come for the anniversary...

After today's whirlwind of news surrounding Zelda U and the NX, we weren't expecting The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses to share some exciting news of their own. The concert series has announced the release of an official Wind Waker Baton, based on its appearance in The Wind Waker and those used by conductors during Symphony of the Goddesses concerts. The Wind Waker Baton is currently available for preorder on the Symphony of the Goddesses website for $40.00 USD, with an expected delivery in June 2016...

Joining the Zelda panels are panels from Animal Crossing, Super Mario Bros., Box Boy!!, and Pokemon. There are also some panels that do not belong to games, such as butterfly panels and a Nikki panel...

As is custom, Nintendo has once again released sales numbers for various games that have sold well on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems. It just so happens that Ocarina of Time 3D and The Wind Waker HD are among the ranks, and coincidentally, they are both remakes.

The Wind Waker HD has sold a total of 1.72 million units on the Wii U, and is selling even more as...

Alongside the plethora of Nintendo news we've received this morning, Nintendo has also shown off a new piece of Zelda U art. The artwork boasts Link firing a bow, but that's not what's interesting about it . . .

As with everything we've seen of Zelda U so far, Link is still dressed in the same blue garments, which begs the question: what's happened to the green tunic? Also, if...
