Tri Force Heroes Screenshot

We recently reported about Tri Force Heroes and the placement on the Zelda timeline. Well, in the same interview with Game Informer - it was mentioned that Tri Force Heroes will not feature costumes based on Mario or any other franchise. The costumes will be based on the Zelda universe only. There is little known if they will add in ones later using DLC; however, this is certainly an option. Should that happen - we will be sure to let you know!

Uncertainty on the Location of Tri Force Heroes in the Zelda Timeline

Tri Force Heroes Art

We recently reported that Tri Force Heroes is not in the Zelda timeline; however, we now have reports of uncertainty in the matter. Nintendo's Hiromasa Shikata - in an interview with Game Informer - said that Zelda has "three parallel worlds" and he "can't say which one it's in at this point." This sheds doubt on the previous reports and brings some hope to the game being part of the timeline. We will keep you updated as new information surfaces.

Tri Force Heroes Director Explains the Lack of Female Characters

Tri Force Heroes Logo

Tri Force Heroes is launching for Nintendo 3DS later this year and brings a multiplayer experience. In the game - you work together to get the materials for new outfits, which change the attributes of the players wearing them. One such outfit is a Zelda outfit, which leads many to wonder if a female playable character would be present in the game.

In an interview with IGN - Tri Force Heroes Director Hiromasa Shikata explains why a female character will not appear in the game. He cites that the "story" calls for a "legend/prophecy" where heroes come together and that the heroes are "male characters." This backstory makes female characters not make any sense for the game.

A Link to the Past Live Map

JADSD recently debuted their A Link to the Past Live Map created with HTML5 and JavaScript. The live map became popular quickly and caused the site to slow down, which is the reason I delayed mentioning it. Well, their site is back to normal. They have also recently added Zora's Domain to their list of maps. They now include the Light World and Zora's Domain. These maps are made special by having the enemies and NPC's animated and wandering around. I found it pretty cool to look over the map and reminisce over my experiences with A Link to the Past over the years.

Who else was struck by nostalgia when they glanced over this live map?

Donkey Kong Country 2 Features Link

Did you know that Link is featured in Donkey Kong Country 2? Well, as you can see in the screenshot above - Link is part of the Cranky's Video Game Heroes screen that judges you based upon how many of his coins you have gathered throughout the game. This screen is available after beating K. Rool at the end of the game or by pressing the L & R buttons on any of the map screens after beating the game. Link is replaced on this screen once the player has acquired more DK Coins than him.

Netflix Reportedly Working on Legend of Zelda Live-Action Series

Zelda Wii U Screenshot

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Netflix is teaming up with Nintendo to create an live-action series based on the Legend of Zelda. It is being described as a "Game of Thrones," but for the family audience. Nintendo has not allowed many adaptations of their IP over the years.

There was a Zelda series that ran for a short time back in 1989 and none - that we know of - since. It is being reported that a writer is still being seeked for this new project so it far from being a reality just yet. It could still be shut down by either Netflix or Nintendo prior to launch.

People seemed to really enjoy the ones from The Wind Waker HD back when it originally released as well as the remake. Toon Link showed a lot of emotions. Well, we now have a video depicting all of the animations of Link from the upcoming Majora's Mask 3D. It shows off all of his forms and animations. Be sure to check it out after the break...

UPDATED - Best Buy and GameStop to Cancel Certain Orders of Majora's Mask New 3DS XL in US

Updated 1/23/2015 8:15PM ET: Best Buy is still cancelling preorders so keep an eye out of your email. Our very own preorder was cancelled due to overselling of original preorders. We only had 1 preordered so it is not just for those with multiples preordered. No one seems to be safe at this point; however, they are offering a $50 promotional code. Here is an image of our very own cancellation email that came in roughly 45 minutes ago:

Best Buy Preorder Cancellation

Updated 1/23/2015 12:47PM ET: GameStop is taking a limited amount of preorders in-stores today. They are divided by region to give more access across the country. You will have to pay in full just like previously and not all regions may get supplies.

Updated 1/18/2015 4:50PM ET: GameStop customer service said that we have until Monday to pay in full for the order. They recommend changing the payment method to a gift card or credit card if you paid with PayPal as they had issues with some PayPal payments. They stated that no limit per household existed and that some people have 5 preorders for this item. This information comes from their 1-800 number as several local stores had no information about this.

Updated 1/18/2015 3:27PM ET: Our local Best Buy confirmed that they oversold the stock and are cancelling some preorders due to this. We will keep you updated as the situation develops.

Original Story:

Majora's Mask New 3DS XL Box

The limited edition Majora's Mask New 3DS XL has been a hot commodity since it was announced a mere few days ago. Preorders have all but sold out at all locations where they were available in the US. We are now hearing reports that both Best Buy and GameStop will be cancelling certain orders of the bundle, which will allow for additional preorders and sells at a later date. GameStop is said to be cancelling any orders that are not paid for by the end of Monday. This does not pertain to all preorders - simply those who got processed when their payment system was offline. They should be contacting you if this was the case with your order. So on Tuesday - they may have more preorders available...

A Fan Take on the Flooded Timeline

The Flooded Timeline

Oh no! Hyrule is flooding! Quick, everyone evolve into birds! Yep, the Zora really did evolve into the Rito. This is possibly the best example of Nintendo Logic there ever was and ever will be. We all know what happened on the Wind Waker timeline, with the flooding, then the boating, and three generations later, the new continent was discovered. Obviously, we have the direct connection from Wind Waker HD to Phantom Hourglass, and the somewhat direct connection from Phantom Hourglass to Spirit Tracks, but has Nintendo forgotten all about this part of the timeline, or are they just waiting for the right time to revive it?

An Hyrulian Take on the Ancient Alien Theories

Hyrulian Take on Ancient Aliens

It is stated in Standardized Hylian lore that three divine goddesses descended upon our plane and bestowed upon it Structure, Life, and Wisdom. They came from the heavens and with their respective divine powers, they shaped the land upon which we now find ourselves residing. It's also their belief that when the goddesses left the Earth, they left behind a mystic power known as the triforce. The triforce was proof positive for the people of Hyrule that the goddesses existed, and they deemed each of the pieces of triforce be dedicated to each goddess, though according to this theory, the fact that there are three pieces as well as gods is seen as coincidence in scientific circles.

How Hints Work in A Link Between Worlds

Spoiler: Are you wondering how hints work in A Link Between Worlds? Well, we now how a video from TheBitBlock that shows off just that. Once you "summon" the Hint Ghost - item needed is still unkown to us but you can see Link put on some glasses - then you simply have to pay him 1 Play Coin or however much is required in order to recieve the hint for the area where you are stuck. Using Play Coins as currency is a smart move as this limits the amount of hints one can use in a single day and makes the game unable to hold your hand as many people wanted. You can see a full resolution artwork of the Hint Ghost after the break...

Game Informer has released the first review for A Link Between Worlds giving it a 10 out of 10. They praised the dungeons, item rental system, and other areas of the game. A quote can be found below...

I want to let the experience roll around in my brain for a while before I decide where it ranks among the best entries in the franchise, but I can say with confidence that it should be spoken in the same breath as A Link to the Past. In every way, A Link Between Worlds is exactly what you want out of a Zelda game.

A Link Between Worlds Gets to the Fun More Quickly

A Link Between Worlds Logo

You may remember when Miyamoto spoke about "getting to the point of fun more quickly" and how they wanted to make newer Zelda games like the old ones. Well, in A Link Between Worlds it only takes around 5 minutes to reach the first dungeon in the game, which is much faster then the long time it takes to do so in Skyward Sword. Reaching the first dungeon faster should be good news to many people so be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.

Aonuma on the Importance of A Link to the Past

In a recent interview, Eiji Aonuma explained the importance of A Link to the Past for him and its influence on the sequel - A Link Between Worlds. You can read the full quotes from Aonuma below.

"A Link To The Past was the game that taught me the vast potential of games during the time I was still new to Nintendo...so this game has a rather special place in my heart and I was never able to imagine that I would be working on a sequel for it now.

We will be using arrangements of music from A Link To The Past, since this is a sequel to that game, and we are also trying to make the music sound like it's played on real instruments. People who know the original will definitely be able to tell and be happy about it, while newcomers will also be able to enjoy it."

Renting Items in A Link Between Worlds Detailed by Aonuma on Miiverse

A Link Between Worlds Screenshot

Earlier we reported that you can rent items in A Link Between Worlds but no details were provided; however, we now have word from Aonuma on Miiverse with a few more details. Eiji Aonuma has stated that Ravio - the Shop Keeper - only has 1 of each item in stock and that by selling them he will go bust. Well, Ravio priced the items very high and Link can not afford them and continue his quest so Ravio starts renting items at a more affordable price. The rental period for each item is unlimited but if Link dies - then the items are taken back to the Item Shop where you have to rent them again. Later in the game you will eventually be able to purchase the items and will no longer run the risk of loosing them.

A Link Between Worlds logo

In the latest Nintendo Direct, we learned more about the Item Shop from A Link Between Worlds. The player is able to purchase most of the essential items in the game at the Item Shop early in the game which will allow for the order one enters the dungeons to become non-linear depending on which items the player purchases or rents. Nintendo also sent out a PR e-mail that contained a few details such as the character that runs the Item Shop being named Ravio.

CD-i Zelda Games not Part of Zelda Canon According to Aonuma

Zelda CD-I

MTV recently interviewed Eiji Aonuma concerning the CD-i Zelda games. When questioned where they fit into the Zelda timeline, Aonuma replied by saying, "I don't know that those really fit in the 'Zelda' franchise."

How Toon Link Was Born - Iwata Asks

How Toon Link Was Born

In a recent Iwata Asks interview we learned how Toon Link was born. Back before The Wind Waker's art-style was shown off the team was trying to come up with a way to make the art-style so that they could come up with new ideas because creating another game in the style of Ocarina of Time would have limited them due to having the same staff members working on the title. Then one day Haruhana-san showed the team the Toon Link sketch seen above and the other members started working on sketches on the same style, which went on to be the art-style for The Wind Waker.

The Dark Triforce - A Fan Theory

The Dark Triforce

As a rebuttal to an article I read - I am writing about an idea that one of my staff members gave me, The Dark Triforce. The Dark Triforce may or may not exist but the theory stems from the A Link Between Worlds logo, you know, the piece where the dark triforce appears underneath the normal one. So just what could this other triforce be and how could it change the future of Zelda?

Symphony of the Goddesses Quest 2 Rekindles the Spirit of the Original!

Symphony of the Goddesses Quest 2

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses recently entered into its second season, which debuted in Atlanta, and I was able to view the show at the same venue as I saw it last year - the Greek Theatre. The show took place on June 12th, 2013 and was once again during my trip out to E3 to cover all the Zelda news for the site. After all the walking and reporting as usual during E3 I welcomed the idea of being able to finally relax and listen to some of my favorite Zelda tunes. So how did Season 2 of Symphony of the Goddesses fair against the first outing? Well - let me tell you a little story...

Sanctuary Dungeon by The Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra

Blake Robinson has released a nice rendition of the new Sanctuary Dungeon theme from the upcoming A Link Between Worlds. The game itself will boast new arrangements of the original music from A Link to the Past. Are there any songs that you are looking forward to hearing? I'd have to say the Dark Forest Theme would sound awesome redone. I have not heard the song from in-game, but I'm sure it is close to this arrangement.

Evolution of Control

Picture of Link

When you consider how Nintendo tries to make Zelda more realistic, they always turn to revolutionizing the control system. Sometimes it's as simple as pressing a button, or as complicated as 1:1 motion controls. Nintendo, though, doesn't really go to make the graphics perfectly realistic, because they feel that they can show more expression with a slightly animated face, than with a realistic human-type face. Throughout this article, I hope to cover some of the evolutions of the control schemes, and suggest what could be done for future control schemes.

Zelda Reorchestrated

Twilight Symphony

Zelda Reorchestrated. I don't know where to begin! In case I go off on a long story about ZREO, here are some solid facts you should know. On June 12, 2013, the Zelda Reorchestrated site will be closing down. That site alone will be closing its doors, for-(the foreseeable future)-ever. Some good news, Radio Hyrule will be an independent project and will in effect cut all ties to ZREO. The music will still be available for download (Twilight Symphony not withstanding) for as long as my friend who owns it can keep it running. If you would like to download all, some, or any of the music available from ZREO, you can do so from the mirror site right here, for free. The music is in MP3 form (some in FLAC), and re-tagged compared to ZREO's original release. There are also ZIP files available for download (torrent-free). The ZREO YouTube channel will still be around, if you prefer to stream over downloading. If you were wondering why we haven't posted about their Twilight Symphony music videos, it is because of this article being held up. Two videos are after the jump, including the most recent one, so be sure to check them out along with the full album as it is released!

Shadows of Kakariko

Shadows of Kakariko

It was a much more stern time in the history of Hyrule; a time when a younger form of the kingdom regarded offenders of the law as refuse to be cast aside. Not a century after the formation of Hyrule, the Shiekah - the guardians of the royal family - were to be given permissions in the realm of punishment and imprisonment. They would be granted authority to deal with criminals under the spoken (and highly open for speculation) constitution of Hylian law. In these Hyrulian dark ages, those who would violate the laws of the land were handled abruptly and harshly, as the Shiekah were, at the time, an entitled and highly powerful extension of the Royal family's sword.

Conventional Changes in Zelda

Conventional Changes in Zelda

Did Aonuma just say the Zelda team were rethinking the traditional conventions in the Zelda formula? Yep. Well, this article is done, have a nice day... And I've been told I need to write a longer article than that, so let's try to talk about those changes. Aonuma said they were going to rethink the ideas of Zelda always being single player, and also change the linear dungeon design. So what could this mean for the Zelda franchise? Does this mean the next game will be a Zelda 1 crossover with Four Swords? Probably not, although it would be an interesting concept. Basically, over the next few paragraphs, what will be discussed is how I think these changes could be implemented and what might result from them. Be sure to leave a comment about what you think about the changes!

Fan Story: The Legend of Terra - Chapter 4

Legend of Terra Chapter 4

A fan of the Legend of Terra? Well, you are in luck because today we bring you Chapter 4. Check out an excerpt below:

Hyrule Castle

Alec rolled over in the soft castle bed, his brown hair laid spread about the pillow from his head digging itself into its feathery softness. Rays of summer sunlight traveled through the open balcony doors colliding with the bed in which the ranch boy lay. The light reflected off the pearly white sheets of the Hylian bed, filling the stone castle room with a bright ambience. Alec made no sound; he simply lay tucked tightly under the warm blankets.

The sound of the large wooden door closing caused Alec's eyes to snap open. Yawning, the young man sat himself up in the large soft bed. He stretched the morning stiffness out of his limbs by reaching his arms and legs out from his body. Looking around the room the ranch boy at first seemed surprised on where he was. He sat in a large wooden framed bed with a feathery soft mattress and white sheets. Light shown through the open balcony doors, and a cool morning breeze flowed gently into the room, the blue curtains moved like waves in the wind. The scents that traveled on the air of the Hylian countryside filled Alec's nose awakening him even more.

Getting up out of the comfortable bed Alec stretched his arms above his head. Looking over his body he noticed that all the wounds he had received the previous night had disappeared, each was completely gone from his body. The headache from the massive blow to the skull was gone entirely. Surprised and rubbing his head he attempted to remember what had happen last night when he returned to the castle.

From what he could piece together form his scattered thoughts and memories he knew that he was taken to Hyrule Castle for treatment of his wounds. He remembered being separated from Link and Princess Terra and taken to the room where he stood now. They made him drink an odd tasting red liquid, and after that...nothing...just blackness...

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons Releasing Before Summer on 3DS eShop

Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons Hitting Before Summer

You may remember our article about Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons heading to the 3DS eShop and how we did not have any real information about release outside of Japan. Well, Eiji Aonuma posted on the Zelda Miiverse community stating:

Our plan is to release these two games in other territories some time before summer!

It's the End of the World as You Know it

It's the End of the World as You Know it

One of the biggest challenges for me playing Majora's Mask was the desire to make a lasting impact on the citizens of Terminia. As you constantly integrate yourself into even the smallest details of their lives, you can't help but feel a personal relationship from every single person you meet. As the game fleshes out and detracts you from your main quest of stopping the moon, the literal weight of the world grows in relation to just how little time you have left. The beautiful thing about Majora's Mask is that it forces you to make choices... choices that ultimately mean nothing.

Renewing the Old and Redoing the New

Renewing the Old and Redoing the New

Over time, a lot of games lose their target audience and the developers either stop making the games, or they just shelve their ideas for a while. There are a lot of different series and franchises that have withstood countless years of being on the market, but there have been others that have dwindled over the years, with some seeing short but definite comebacks. However, one of the dominating franchises that has never dwindled is The Legend of Zelda. This franchise has been around for over 25 years and is one of the most well known franchises in video-game history. Nintendo has been really careful to make sure that this series didn't dwindle, so read on to explore a few points as to why I think Zelda has been able to make a lasting impression. Also, it would be superb if you could comment as to why you think the series has been able to stay so current for so long.

Future Plans for the 3DS Zelda Release Date

Ocarina of Time 3D

In a recent interview with Satoru Iwata, IGN got to ask the tough questions about the Wii U's reception, among other topics. Here is a quote from Iwata,

One Way Trip To Paradise

Don't you wish you lived in Hyrule? Of course you did! Is that even a question? Of course it isn't! Silly businesses aside, would you risk it all to start again? To live in the ancient world of Hyrule? You get one choice and one choice only. That is the Hyrule of Ocarina of Time, well before the flood. At least, let us hope so. The means of getting there are, well, untested. Journey aside, you get to take one lucky person with you. A total of 500 people are going, and the land of Hyrule is large and lacking polygonal walls.

How Has Each Zelda Game Held Up Over the Years

How Has Zelda Held Up Over the Years

The Legend of Zelda is a long running series. 26 years to be exact, and it's definitely changed a lot since the very first release back on the NES. If we were to look at how the different games have been regarded by critics, there wouldn't be any noticeable trend, because Nintendo has always done their best to take what worked well, and implement it with some new stuff to make it fell like a newer experience, while still holding true to the core mechanics. After the break, we'll explore how each game has held up against critics, and more importantly, the test of time.

Recurring Relationships of the Zelda Franchise

Recurring Relationships in Legend of Zelda

Possible Spoilers: Before I just dive right into what relationships actually are recurring, and other stuff about the relationships, let's discuss what relationships there are and how they've been created or evolved over the years. Obviously, we'd go back to the same format as the Link's Looks article, and start from the first game and continue from there, but not spending as much time on each game and probably not getting to every game, just a brief sentence or two or so on the game of interest. I'll try to make it as exciting as possible for those who aren't into romances that much...but not that kind of excitement. This isn't 50 Shades of Gray, after all, but read on anyway.

New Fan Story: Lost King by Ryan Hammett

Lost King - Forest Sonata

Staff member Ryan Hammett has released Part 1 of Lost King, which is a fan story. Check out the excerpt below.

Many decades have passed, and Hyrule is well. Ganon had not appeared since he was defeated, and the lands were prosperous. Everything was as the Hero of Time had hoped, but trouble within the hierarchy was about to end it all...

Forest Sonata Legend of the Skull Kids

Torn was sprinting for the entrance to Kokiri Forest as the castle guards were trailing behind him. The entrance to the forest was blocked off due to the thought of the impending wars (or so any outsiders thought), and Torn jumped the bridge to enter the Lost Woods. Torn stopped running and heard no sounds of the soldiers approaching. Torn thought to himself how he would escape the Lost Woods, as no one had ever escaped after the Hero of Time vanished. Torn had left his enchanted fairy ocarina in the well at Kakariko Village, and without it had no way to escape the Lost Woods. Torn began to walk deeper into the Lost Woods, with every turn leading to a new path.
