A Link to the Past: What the Legend of Zelda Series Has Left Behind

The Legend of Zelda is a game series with a history of over 30 years, and in that time the series has done a lot to expand upon itself. From the ever growing multiple timelines and self-referential story-lines to basic game mechanics, each Zelda title inherits a lot from its predecessors. There are, however, some things that just didn’t survive the overwhelming growth of the Zelda universe. ...

10 Classic Nintendo Games That Haven’t Been Remade, but Should Be

I know what you’re thinking. Doesn’t Nintendo already remake everything? Well, yes, Nintendo is notorious for releasing, re-releasing, and re-re-releasing many of their more popular titles. Take Metroid for example. Excluding its original release on the Famicom Disk System and Nintendo Entertainment System, Metroid has been rereleased a grand total of six times (the Classic NES Series ...

Video: Miyamoto and Aonuma show off a first look at Zelda for Wii U gameplay

  Nintendo surprised us with a special upload to their YouTube channel you don’t want to miss: a first look at the gameplay in the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda entry on Wii U. Aonuma explores several different environments on Epona in the video while he and Miyamoto discuss the game itself and its development. They also stray into other topics, revealing (surprisingly) an odd tidbit: t...

Retro Redux: NES Quest – You don’t just beat NES games…or do you?

I know it’s been a while since the last update on NES Quest and even longer since the last report card, so this post is long overdue! First, a (very) brief update: I never did get around to playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II with a friend again, so that’s why I’ve been holding off on a report card. But I have had the time to play StarTropics, which is, of course, single play...

Remembering Robin Williams, actor, comedian, Nintendo fan

Robin Williams shocked the world with his suicide on Monday, Aug. 11, at age 63. The beloved actor was revealed to have been suffering from depression. I grew up watching Williams in brilliant roles like Peter Banning in Hook and Daniel Hillard in Mrs. Doubtfire. Jumanji and Aladdin also come to mind, in which he played Alan Parrish and Genie, respectively. Nintendo fans may remember Williams as a...

Aonuma: “I want Zelda (Wii U) to be vast!”

Longtime Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has offered more insight on what he hopes to bring to the Wii U version of The Legend of Zelda. In a post on Nintendo of Japan’s official website, Aonuma writes how he wants the landscapes and various areas to be an important gameplay mechanic for the Zelda series’ next console installment. “I still won’t say so much about this, but we made it a them...

Nintendo Spotting: Zelda hockey jersey

Aside from being a lifelong fan of Nintendo, I myself have an undying love for the sport of hockey. Out of sheer surprise, the two loves of my life crossed paths last night. While in the second intermission of a Western Conference Divisional Playoff game between the Chicago Blackhawks and my hometown St. Louis Blues, I saw in the distance a man wearing a green jersey. At first glance, I figured it...

Free Zelda themed DLC coming tomorrow for Sonic Lost World

Similar to the Yoshi’s Island-inspired free DLC that Sonic Lost World received at the end of last year, new DLC will be released tomorrow, March 27, this time in the spirit of The Legend of Zelda. This time around, Sonic will actually be dressed in the iconic green tunic, green hat, and boots that have become so recognizable as Link’s usual garb, along with speeding through a Hyrule-es...

Aonuma: “Recent Zelda games have been rather linear”

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the Nintendo 3DS has been praised for not only its call back to A Link to the Past but its departure from the usual norms of the popular franchise (item renting and choosing dungeon order, to be exact). However, aside from a few drastic changes, longtime Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma hopes to change more for the series’ betterment. In an interview ...

Opinion: Nintendo Counterbalances Industry Excess

      Nintendo Entertainment System was the first video game system I played. Back then, my playtime was mostly a save-the-princess affair. Playing Nintendo games granted me a way to do something larger than myself. It allowed me to do good deeds.  As I’ve grown older and technology has advanced, mainstays like The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers, and Pokémon counterbala...

What does Nintendo need to bring to E3?

Sony and Microsoft both have next gen consoles on the way. Soon. This much we know for sure. As for whether or not they will be show stoppers and garner enough support to take whatever momentum the Wii U has gained in the last few months remains to be seen. Nintendo can control their own destiny with a good showing at E3 and beyond. What should Nintendo bring to the table? Read on to hear my thoug...
