Super Mario 3DS Has a Zelda-Style Dungeon Level

Two legends collide

You've hopefully watched the trailer for Super Mario on 3DS, but one thing you won't have seen is a level created in honour of The Legend of Zelda's 25th anniversary this year. During the developer roundtable, Super Mario producer Yoshiaki Koizumi revealed a top-down stage that mimics the dungeon layout from Link's first outing. It can be seen briefly in the video below, which..

Zelda: Four Swords to Be a Free DSiWare Game in September

Rejoice!

Nintendo just announced as part of its Zelda: 25th Anniversary package the release of Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for DSiWare in September this year. The four-player game will be a free download to all DSiWare users, presumably meaning it'll be available for nothing in the 3DS eShop too. Are you excited about playing more Zelda: Four Swords on DSiWare?

Nintendo to Reveal New Zelda Game at E3

Will it be for Café?

Plenty of things in life get lost in translation, but hopefully this isn't one of them. French website Power-Nintendo has a correspondent in Japan, who recently attended a live event for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. According to the website, Zelda overlord Eiji Aonuma let slip a big secret slip: we'll see a new Zelda at...

Nintendo UK Launches Official Zelda Portal

Ready for Ocarina

This is a big year for Zelda fans: not only does the series celebrate its 25th anniversary this year, we'll also receive Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword both out before the 2012 calendars go up. With that in mind, Nintendo UK has wisely launched its official Zelda portal, covering all things Hyrule. The site links to Link's outings on Virtual..

Gold and shiny video

Readers who follow our own James Newton on Twitter may have seen this Tweet last weekend, which implied our hard-working and handsome News Editor (Okay, that's enough — Ed) was already in possession of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. As it happens, the mystery box in his hand was not Link's upcoming four-dimensional...

Zelda's Timeline is Simple In the Hands of Dr Emmett Brown

No more confusion!

Yes, there is a Zelda master timeline document, but members of Nintendo's inner sanctum will ever likely be able to see it. That hasn't stopped fans from trying to make sense of it themselves, but they were all missing the right tools: a DeLorean, a flux capacitor and a healthy love of all things Back to the Future. Of course, it's not the first time that 1980s movies and Zelda..

Both visually and control-wise

Zelda fans worldwide are surely counting down the days until the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D; with just just three days separating the game's release in Japan, North America and Europe, adventure fans will do well to dust off their shields and sharpen their wooden swords in anticipation of Link's...

Link's never looked better

As you'll have read in our Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D preview, Link's rarely looked better than in his next appearance. It's not just the 3DS's advanced graphics technology making the game look so good, though: it all goes back to the original artwork, as Nintendo has released a series of images showing how Link's...

Link's past and future in one evening

Last year's E3 conference was full of 3DS announcements, but one moment that still sticks in the memory after a year is the revelation of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D for the console.

North American 3DS owners may be frustrated by the lack of pre-order bonuses for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, but fans in the UK will be able to pick up a limited edition golden sleeve and double-sided A2 poster when they pre-order and purchase Link's 3D adventure. GAME and Gamestation stores are both offering the bonuses to early birds, with the poster depicting Link in battle on one..

Re-Examining Zelda: Twilight Princess

Playing it safe, or changing the game?

You can tell a lot about a game from its opening scene. In the first few minutes of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time we're shown a sweeping, first-person view of the Kokiri Forest, as Navi flies frantically to awake a hero-to-be. In Zelda: The Wind Waker we're shown, in a beautifully minimalist art style, an...

Locked in the box

Expecting to pick up Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and rush straight into the Master Quest mode? Hold your horses, as the harder difficulty won't be available from the start. Players must finish the regular quest before being able to take on the tougher enemies, dungeons and puzzles of the Master Quest mode, which will either delight or frustrate those intending to pick up..

Get Another Taste of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D with This Video

Like Young Link, it's only short

This game needs no introduction, and it's unlikely many are on the fence about it: you've either already pre-ordered it and put aside the funds, or aren't buying it on principle. Whichever way you swing, the video below shows how the game's shaping up now it's just over a month away. The video shows Sheik, Ganondorf, Zelda and plenty of other staple characters, both..

Miyamoto: A Link to the Past Could be Reworked for the 3DS

Hyrule just looks too good in 3D

Deciding which old classics get the 3DS treatment is probably a more difficult task than we as consumers can imagine. Luckily, we have designers like Shigeru Miyamoto who seem to have a pretty clear idea on what might and might not work. Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, Miyamoto explained why The Legend of Zelda:...

Come On In for Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D's Intro Movie

Welcome back, old friend

As the saying goes, "if it's not broken, don't fix it", which seems to be the thinking at Grezzo Co. judging from the introductory video to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, embedded below. Complete with the original music, direction and pretty much everything from the N64 original, the video nicely sets up Link's first 3D outing, due for release in June. It..

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 after spending a significant amount of time creating..
