Is Ganondorf making a return in Zelda: A Link Between Worlds?

A bevy of  new artwork from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds has surfaced from Nintendo today, and one piece of art shows off what appears to be a familiar foe: Is that Ganondorf? Yes, the the headline alone for this post may sound like a “Well, duh!” type of inquiry, but it does deserve some bit of discussion. The art depicts a character that bares comparisons to the Zelda f...

The Game Machine Joe

Hi Infendo readers! I’m Game Machine Joe one of the newest bloggers for Team Infendo. I’m a 26 year old video gamer from Wisconsin; who like you all love everything Nintendo. I currently spend my free time (out side of playing video games) drawing, debating, and reading. I have a very critical eye for Nintendo products and only expect the best from Iwata’s team. If something Nint...

Miyamoto-san, what did you eat?!

So I went to PAX East this past Saturday—it was fun! I only really hit up the exhibit floor to check out new games and the 3DS, but that was enough for me. I also bought a wooden training sword for no particular reason. While touring the floor, I visited the 8-Bit Cubist booth and picked up a few postcards. These guys and gals can seriously draw, and the images presented here are but two exa...

Infendo tour de art

Concept art for video games is where it all starts. Before any pony-tailed programmer writes even a single line of code, there is the concept art to show what the vision of the game is. I have always enjoyed the art gallery unlockables that many games today seem to have to see what the game designers had envisioned for the game before it became, well, a game. In the entire history of video...

Greatest Zelda painting of all time?

Greatest Zelda painting of all time. Context: 25 Years of Zelda. Oh, and it gets bigger.

This Zelda pixel mosaic is pretty cool

So claim the creators: These mosaics have been created using various sprites and screenshots from every single Legend of Zelda game ever made. This includes the infamous CDi games such as The Wand of Gamelon and classics like A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time. Many of the images are from Legend of Zelda 1, 2 and 3, but all the games are represented. Thanks, Jim.

Unwound Future astounds and delivers

The credits roll, you watch the epilogue, then you close your DS and stare into space for a moment, your head swimming with thoughts of loved ones, partings, and things you’d do differently in life if you had a second chance. All you can say is, “Wow.” Professor Layton and the Unwound Future is that kind of game—A surprising, emotion-grabbing, one-hundred-percent satisfying work of wonder....

Smash Club

You do not talk about Smash Club. Also, Link totally looks like an old man in this picture. Ew.

Zelda’s new look?

Hmm. I’ve since warmed to the new pseudo-cel shaded look of the upcoming Wii MotionPlus-enhanced Zelda title, but the look of this deviantart submission has kind of given me second thoughts about what the next title in the series should look like… [Thanks 4cr for locating this gem]

Biblical 1-up

Deviantart member quartertofour gets all Biblical on our butts today. Now go outside and enjoy the summer.

Skyward Sword’s eclectic art style is a link to the past

That Nintendo is clearly going for a new art style with the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is undeniable. The initial screens, and those colors…they are, if nothing else, a marked departure from the browns and greens found in Twilight Princess. What we saw at E3 was clearly a demo, complete with ever-present visual Wiimote cues onscreen, so I think it’s safe to say Link will be journey...
