Earlier today, Nintendo announced through their Japanese Twitter account that the Hyrule Castle 64 stage is coming to Super Smash Bros. on Wii U & 3DS as paid DLC. The stage launches this Friday, July 31st alongside a handful of other updates, including the long-awaited Tourney Mode, YouTube Replays, Mii Fighter Costume Packs and more...

Yes, it's much ado about nothing. Nintendo released a financial report the other day as they do at the end of every quarter. Just like in every other financial report, they include a list of announced games that haven't been released yet. Zelda U is among them and is listed as TBD. To help frame how silly what I am about to talk about is, Zelda U was also listed as TBD in the last financial report. Still, this revelation is apparently only making the rounds today...

One detail about Tri Force Heroes that was given to the Zelda fanbase in the E3 trailer is that the game takes place in a very fashion-conscious kingdom. All the residents wear flamboyant clothing and accessories and so do Link, Link, and Link. (See what I did there?)

In an interview with Game Informer, Tri Force Heroes' developer, Shikata...

Viz Media put on a half hour panel for the A Link to the Past graphic novel, originally released over twelve issues of Nintendo Power back in 1992. The panel itself is extremely informative, covering the significance of this graphic novel back in the early 90's, its importance to this day, and how it all came to be re-released in the present. To give you a time frame, conversations to reprint this started back in 2011, so it's a pretty long process...

One point of frustration and ire for some Zelda fans regarding the upcoming Tri Force Heroes is the fact only one player can control movement of the totem when all three players stack. Due to the game centering around three-player play and co-op, a primary mechanic is the totem, wherein players can lift up other players to form a stack, granting the bottom player control of the totem's movement and the ability to put the other two players on top of him down, while the top player can use items...

With Tri Force Heroes offering enough costumes to fill three months of gameplay, some fans may have expected to see some cameo costumes from other classic Nintendo franchises. Unfortunately, it seems we won't be finding a Mario or Samus outfit hidden in this new Zelda game after all. In an interview with Game Informer, director Hiromasa Shikata confirmed that Tri Force Heroes will only feature costumes from the Zelda universe, meaning there will be no cameo costumes from other franchises...

We've known for some time now that you could play Tri Force Heroes by yourself through the use of dolls, but would every dungeon be playable? After all, there could be dungeons that are not necessary to beat the game that are multiplayer exclusive. As it turns out, this isn't the case. All dungeons (or courses, as Shikata keeps referring to them as) will be playable solo. Here is what Hiromasa Shikata told Game Informer in an exclusive interview...

For its third week, Ocarina of Time is number one on the eShop charts and continues to keep Splatoon in the number two slot! Though it seems that A Link to the Past has dropped off the top 20, I am sure we have not seen the last of it...

The Nintendo 3DS has shaped up to be the home of the next few Zelda titles, with Tri Force Heroes and Hyrule Warriors: Legends coming soon to the platform. There are surely many fans eagerly looking to get their hands on these titles, as well as those who remain skeptical until they see the final products. The interest in these games are apparent as, according to last week's 3DS eShop charts, the E3 trailer for Tri Force Heroes was the number 1 most watched video, with the trailer for Hyrule Warriors: Legends sitting nicely at the number 5 spot...

The Legend of Zelda series is one of Nintendo's most popular franchises. While Ocarina of Time is holding steady at #1 on the Wii U eShop, the series will not be forgotten on the 3DS where it takes 4 of the top 20 spots this week. Link's Awakening DX, The Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of Time 3D, and Majora's Mask 3D all took home some of the best sales slots on the 3DS eShop. Here is the full top 20 this week...
