Every week, Zelda Informer reports on the weekly Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop charts. Why every week, you ask? It's because every week there is at least one Zelda game that sells very well among the hundreds of games available to download. We understand these posts can become a tad monotonous, but to ignore these charts would go against the ZI mentality of reporting all news pertaining to The Legend of Zelda, no matter how big or small. Plus, some enjoy seeing what particular Zelda titles sold well in the past week...

Last year at Gamescom, fans were able to play a demo of the yet to be released Tri Force Heroes on Nintendo 3DS. All attendees had access to said demo, and many joined up with friends and strangers to experience the new Zelda title. This time around, Zelda is coming back to Gamescom with Breath of the Wild. However, only 50 fans will be selected for the experience, and there are certain requirements...

A new officially licensed Zelda dress is currently up for pre-order at Merchoid, called "Dress of the Wild". It features printed on buckles and a Hylian crest and is based upon Link himself. The sizes vary from small all the way to XXL, and will run you $36.99 USD. Clearly the name takes inspiration from Breath of the Wild, though some of the imagery notably references Ocarina of Time. Merchoid is taking pre-orders right now and will be shipping them world wide in September...

Nintendo of Japan recently shared an updated list of Wii U and 3DS titles that have sold at least a million units. New to this list is The Wind Waker HD, and it joins fellow Zelda title, Ocarina of Time 3D. The former has sold 1.82 million units and the latter has sold 4.30 million units. Some other titles on this list are Splatoon, Pokemon X/Y, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Tomodachi Life...

30 fans got the chance to play Breath of the Wild's demo at Hyper Japan Festival 2016. I'm sure we're all jealous of them, except for those who got to play the demo at E3 or Nintendo NY. Regardless, Nintendo UK has uploaded a video containing fans' reactions to said demo.

Reactions like "absolutely amazing," "incredible," "thrilling," etc. reassure me that Breath of the Wild will be one...

One of the two canon Zelda games on the Nintendo DS, Phantom Hourglass, has been on the Virtual Console in North America and Europe for a while now. You can pick up this great handheld adventure for 10 bucks, and I personally feel it's worth the price. Regardless, Japan is following suit, and will be adding Phantom Hourglass to the Virtual Console library on the Japanese Wii U eShop for ‎¥960 yen.

Along with Phantom Hourglass, another DS game is joining the Virtual Console ranks...

Gaming channel Eurogamer has compiled a list of seven small details that make a huge impact in the new Breath of the Wild game. While Breath of the Wild is a new Zelda concept in size alone, there are many small details that give Zelda fans a unique twist from previous gameplay experiences. Here’s a list of the seven details worth noticing that Eurogamer points out...

Since Hyrule Warriors Legends has brought the Wii U experience to the 3DS, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have made use of the SpotPass feature to bring extra bonuses to players. The latest bonus is pretty nice, and includes not only a lot of Rupees, but a new fairy as well. I personally don't use the My Fairy system that much, but I really should take advantage of it. I've heard good things about the mechanic. Anyways, check out the full list...

Earlier today we showed off a new Breath of the Wild figure by Medicom, but that's not the only new thing coming to Zelda fans. Announced at Japan's Wonder Festival 2016, there will be a new Breath of the Wild based Nendoroid along with two Twilight Princess figmas. Models of the figmas were on display, while we simply got an announcement image for the Nendoroid. All the images are available in the gallery. These three were among a larger list of new figures, which include...

While this past E3 feels like the first time we truly had Breath of the Wild unveiled, reality is the game was technically revealed at E3 2014 under the title The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. While the game had already been in development for years, to the point Eiji Aonuma felt strongly that 2015 was easily going to be the launch year, it turns out that trailer eventually became the basis for the entire game. Eiji Aonuma did an interview with Edge magazine and through that he reiterated that was shown in 2014...
