    This Demake Of Legend Of Zelda Is Most Fun You Can Have With Colored Squares

    It’s dangerous to go alone! Go play The Legend Of Zelda, deconstructed and reduced to its component concepts! You are Link, a green square, and your mission is to kill Ganon (probably a dark block). Along the way you’ll grab a sword (a brown block) and fight all sorts of monsters, from Octoroks to Moblins (represented by blinking colors). Read More

    Nintendo Promises More Titles For Wii U Including New Zelda, Mario Games

    Nintendo has a lot to announce this morning, including an app for its Miiverse platform, as well as some fan-favorite game titles that will be available on the Wii U platform in the coming months. By the time E3 rolls around, in mid-June, the Wii U will support two new Zelda games, as well as new Super Mario and Mario Kart titles. Nintendo announced the Wii U back in June, offering a new level… Read More

    40/40: Zelda Skyward Sword Lands Perfect Score From Famitsu

    The Famitsu, Japan’s (and maybe the world’s) biggest video game magazine, has tested Zelda Skyward Sword (the newest Zelda game for Wii) in their newest issue. And apparently, they liked what they played: as the first game this year, Zelda Skyward Sword scored a perfect 40/40 score. The four testers gave away ten out of ten points each, making the Wii title the third in the… Read More

  • Nintendo Bigwigs: 25th Anniversary Zelda Collection Wouldn't Be Nintendo-Like

    Nintendo Bigwigs: 25th Anniversary Zelda Collection Wouldn't Be Nintendo-Like

    At this E3’s Nintendo press conference, we were treated to a nice little dose of Zelda music, and told there would be a sweet 25th anniversary soundtrack, as well as some traveling concerts and a free DSiWare game. All very good, but I couldn’t help but be disappointed at the lack of a collected edition like that issued for last year’s Mario 25th Anniversary. And according… Read More

    New Zelda: Skyward Sword Trailer

    Nintendo has released a new trailer for Skyward Sword, the next Zelda game for Wii. I have to say, it’s looking better than it did at E3, but maybe that’s because it’s not being controlled live. I do have faith that Nintendo will come up with quite a few interesting sword dynamics — their ingenuity is unlimited when they set their minds to it. Not exactly looking… Read More

    Nintendo Warns Parents Not To Let Children Under 6 Play 3DS

    A note on Nintendo’s Web site says that children under the age of 6 should not play its upcoming 3DS console, at least not in 3D mode. The warning says children’s eyes at such a young are still developing, and that it wouldn’t be safe to subject them to the 3D effect generated by the 3DS. Of course, youngsters are still welcome to play the 3DS in 2D mode. But where’s… Read More

    Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword announced along with vastly improved Wii interaction

    Here we go: another E3, another Zelda. The latest in the Zelda canon is Skyward Sword, a MotionPlus compatible game that mimics the experience of holding a sword and a shield. Link’s on-screen actions mimic your actions completely including the motion of a shield in front of you. Basically this is a more precise version of the previous Zelda Wii interface. With so many people trying so… Read More

  • Mario Kart (and more) for your Palm Pre

    A WebOS port of the popular GB/CGA emulator is pretty rocking’, even though it only runs at 90% speed on a good day. The hackers who figured all this out will get it back up to speed shortly but don’t expect to download this at the Apps Market or whatever Palm is calling it. This is pure homebrew. Click through for Zelda. Read More

    This dude made a Zelda game in C++. What did you do this year?

    A French dude named Christopho has created The Legend of Zelda: Mystery of Solarus DX, essentially a fan homage to the Zelda world. It comes complete with the requisite durdle-durdle-string-string music of the original series as well as a back story so convoluted that Tingle himself might have something to do with it. However, it kicks ass. Read More

    New Zelda for Wii probably not coming until 2011

    It’s not that we want to rush Nintendo in the creation of their next opus, but it might have been nice to have it in 2010. Perhaps the biggest of the “big three” Nintendo franchise games in the works (along with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M) is “tracking” for 2010 but Nintendo isn’t committed to the year. I’m guessing they’re not… Read More
