    Amazing Hyrule and Spaghetti Western Mash-Up Hits YouTube

    There was a time when YouTube was the sole preserve of low-grade amateur videos and footage of amusing pets performing inane stunts, but with millions of dollars being pumped into original programming on the service, we're starting to see the kind of content which rivals what we're viewing on...

  • News Zelda Remakes Still Part of Nintendo's Quest

    Miyamoto weighing up two distinct options

    Ever since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D arrived on 3DS, fans of the series have been eager to see what's next. Our team had hopes, before they were cruelly dashed, that an all-new Zelda entry would be teased for 3DS at E3. Judging on comments made by Shigeru Miyamoto to IGN, however, it seems that...

  • News Another Zelda Remake for 3DS?

    Miyamoto's 3DS Zelda kick continues

    It seems that the upcoming release of Ocarina of Time might not be the only Legend of Zelda remake we see appearing on 3DS, at least not if Nintendo's head game guru has anything to do with it. In a recent conversation with Edge magazine, Miyamoto talked about Nintendo finally getting back to game development...

  • News Fan-Made Zelda MMO in Early Stages of Development

    Zelda World to offer what Nintendo hasn't?

    Most of the games in The Legend of Zelda series stay fairly rooted in the action-RPG genre and whilst that hasn't been detrimental to its overall quality and reputation, it does leave room for those wanting a deviation from the somewhat limited offline play for some wishful thinking. It seems a group of...

    Spot the references in this one

    Mark Ronson's made a bit of a name for himself remixing and revamping other artists' tracks, so it's no surprise to see the video for his new track Circuit Breaker take inspiration from other sources. Nobody expected it to borrow so heavily from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, though. With a distinctive-looking overworld, green-capped hero and what looks..

    South Korea is slowly but surely catching up on the enormous back catalogue of Virtual Console games released elsewhere, as they didn't get the Wii (And thus VC) until last April.
