This Zelda Nursery Sets the Scene for a Life of Adventure

Highly decorated

So many Legend of Zelda games open with Link waking up in bed that a Zelda-decorated nursery makes perfect sense. Cole Bradburn and friend Wes spent three months decorating a nursery to greet Bradburn's newborn son, taking the cel-shaded adventures of Link as their inspiration. The hand-painted room features art from The Legend of...

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...

Japan Gets New Skyward Sword Link Figure in October

Go Figma

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's interpretation of Link gets immortalised in resin later this year, when Japanese manufacturer Max Factory puts out its Master Sword Link figurine. The ¥3,800 statue — that's about £30 or $47 — comes with Link, a Master Sword and Hylian Shield (of course), as well as an effects piece for his sword...

Miyamoto Talks Zelda Wii U Experiments

Several in the works

Last year's Zelda HD experience was certainly graphically impressive, but as always Nintendo was keen to stress it was just an example of what's possible; we know from past experience Zelda tech demos often vastly differ from the finished product. Nintendo's main man Shigeru Miyamoto told Entertainment Weekly there are various...

Nintendo Land's Zelda Game Has Us in Stitches

Link's never looked cuter

Nintendo Land combines several key Nintendo franchises — Zelda, Animal Crossing and more — into a theme park-style minigame compilation. Each title has its own new graphical style, and the super-cutesy hand-stitched Zelda game certainly tickles our fancy. The Legend of Zelda: Battle Quest game features archery and...

"Next time on The Legend of Zelda..."

For more than 25 years, The Legend of Zelda series has grapple-hooked the hearts of gamers across the globe. Thanks to the consistent quality of its library of titles, the Zelda brand has generated a worldwide recognition that few games achieve and has become the standard by which all other action-adventure...

News: Zelda Rock Album Available Now

Zelda Rock Album Available Now

Suitably epic

The Legend of Zelda is a franchise with immediately recognisable themes and soundtracks, which naturally prompts fans to produce their own arrangements and covers of the iconic music. In an interesting approach, one musician has opted to, in his words, produce a 'post-rock inspired rearrangement of Koji Kondo's music', giving it a new...

Legendary LEGO

Recently we found out that a project to make LEGO Zelda a reality, via the CUUSOO platform, had reached 10,000 supporters and, as a result, has gone forward for consideration by The LEGO Group. There are still hurdles to get over, including the small matter of Nintendo agreeing to license the brand, but it's an achievement to...

Toys could enter production

A while ago we became aware of an intrepid fan's campaign to persuade LEGO to produce a series of figures based on The Legend of Zelda. By entering their designs on LEGO CUUSOO, a site that allows people to submit ideas for the famous toy brand, the user known as Mingles set out on a quest to accumulate enough support to...

Real Life Skyward Sword Controls Don't Work

Though kids have better luck

We rather liked The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, stating that it's 'as good a Zelda game as we've ever played' in our perfect 10 review. We simply felt that everything blended beautifully, including the immersive MotionPlus controls. Not everyone felt the same about the control scheme, however, with some complaining...

Miyamoto Keen On New Zelda Based on Link to the Past

So are we

Last year, Shigeru Miyamoto talked about Link to the Past on 3DS, and he's been at it again on a recent press trip to Paris. Speaking to Edge, Miyamoto said he's still interested in bringing Link's 16-bit adventure to the 3D Classics range, but he has something else in mind: I think the answer would be the same if we're talking about just...

Tecmo Koei's next Dynasty Warriors game for 3DS, Dynasty Warriors Vs., features some interesting sartorial options for discerning Nintendo fans. The Japan-only scrapper lets you dress up as Link or Samus in her Zero Suit. They're included on the cart, but you'll have to get far enough in the tutorial mode to unlock them. Note that these...

You have mail, maybe

It's not a surprise to hear that Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda series, is once again teasing more releases on 3DS. We've heard rumours of a 3D remastering of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, the possibility of a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, and Aonuma himself referring to a continuation o

Your inbox is about to bulge

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata announced during his Nintendo Direct conference that the company will use Nintendo Letter Box to send game-related messages to 3DS owners. Interestingly the service can target players of specific games — indeed, players of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D in Europe should keep...

Will you be their player two?

Like so many others, we at Nintendo Life get swept up in the romance that is in the air during St. Valentine's Day. We love the smell of the flowers, the taste of the chocolate and the irresistible allure of digging through the online dating profiles of strangers, hoping to find something amusing. Surprisingly, we got...
