At the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year Nintendo made an announcement about a new addition to the beloved Legend of Zelda series. No, it wasn’t for some open world Zelda title for the Wii U or newer generation consoles (not yet anyways, take a deep breath it’s okay) but for a brand new co-op themed game, The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes. Slated for release on October 23, 2015, this co-op oriented adventure game has you and your friends taking on the form of three different colored Links and working cooperatively in order to solve puzzles and battle bosses. With a visual style similar to that of A Link Between Worlds and gameplay much like The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures, this title definitely aims to please and give us something to keep us busy before the announcement date of an even bigger Zelda adventure (hopefully!).
Welcome, weary traveler, to a new and exciting series that aims to celebrate the triumphs of female video game characters.
“Just female characters?” you may scoff. “Why not all characters?”
Good question. The answer is because I say so.
A complete love letter to The Legend of Zelda universe.
The last announced DLC and free update for Hyrule Warrior came out in North America on Thursday — two weeks after Europe and Japans’ release. The development cycle for Hyrule Warriors is finally drawing to a close after six strong months of DLC and updates. Nintendo is new to DLC this generation, so it has been interesting to see how they handle it with so many western countries abusing DLC to try and squeeze some extra cash out of people.
Hyrule Warriors was released on the Wii U in North America on September 26th last year, and has since pumped out 4 major DLC packs — along with 4 free updates. Now that it’s all said and done, Zelda fans are asking one question: Is it all worth it?
Zoom In to find hidden secrets and details in the new Zelda Wii U Gameplay Demo revealed during the Game Awards.
Zelda Wii U has been the topic of choice for every Zelda fan ever since its big reveal at E3 earlier this year. Very little is known about the new game–let alone the end title–which leaves hardcore fans thirsty for more. Even under heavy analysis, the cinematic trailer they revealed at E3 didn’t tell us much about the game, despite it all being in-engine.

According to a report from IGN, the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. will release November 21, 2014.
An image was leaked earlier today on Twitter by an employee at the retailer Fred Meyer, showing a reservation card of SSB Wii U with the release date clearly posted in large print.
The leaked picture from BluesDriveBuster’s Twitter account.
The Super Smash Bros. Wii U release date has still not officially been announced by Nintendo, and the card does say that the date is subject to change. However, the Friday before Thanksgiving would be an ideal day for Nintendo to drop such a highly anticipated game, as the Black Friday crowd the following week will be sure to scoop up the game in huge quantities.
Stay tuned to see how Nintendo reacts to the Super Smash Bros. Wii U release date leak.

A recent post on Nintendo’s official UK store has revealed that Mario Kart 8 will indeed be getting the DLC that gamers have been demanding.
Not one, but TWO DLC packs will be released for the Wii U’s Mario Kart 8, adding 8 all new races to the game. In addition to getting to play two brand new cups, players will also have more characters to choose from.
The first DLC, available this November, will introduce Tanooki Mario and Cat Suit Peach as new racers. However, Nintendo is expanding the Mario Kart universe by adding characters from other Nintendo franchises. The first of these non-Mario universe characters to be a playable racer in the game is none other than Link from the Legend of Zelda series!

The second DLC will be available May 2015, and feature more new racers: Dry Bowser, Isabelle in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and the classic Animal Crossing villager.
In addition to the brand new characters and tracks, 4 new vehicles will be available to players in each DLC – making 8 new carts in total.
Cat Suit Peach will be the third version of Peach in Mario Kart 8 after her normal form and Pink Gold Peach.
While the track and vehicle specifics of the second DLC out next May have yet to be revealed, the UK Nintendo store revealed what will be included in this November’s pack: A track based on the world of the Legend of Zelda, a re-vamp of Wario’s Gold Mine from the Wii, and a Blue Falcon cart “representing the F-Zero franchise.”
