This Zelda GameCube Controller is Awesome in an Ugly Way

An acquired taste

Way back when Nintendo was putting the finishing touches to Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on GameCube, there were plans for a limited edition controller to accompany the little box's swansong.

Will We See a Zelda 25th Anniversary Collection this Year?

Link reaches a quarter-century old

Last year, Nintendo's tubby mascot celebrated his 25th anniversary in the form of Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition, a collection that disappointed some in its paucity of interesting content. This year Nintendo will get a chance to wipe the slate clean and try harder, as its other ageless hero – Link – turns 25. Nintendo President Satoru Iwata..

Zelda: Skyward Sword Getting "Finishing Touches"

Link's latest looks locked for later this...year

It's been a while since we heard anything concrete about the highly awaited The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Revealed at E3 2010 with nary a peep afterward, until one day last December, out of nowhere, Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto poked his head out to say "it's half-finished, y'all." Now we have more. During a recent investor..

Zelda: Skyward Sword is 2011's Biggest Game

Link to the future

Earlier today we brought you a list of five Nintendo games to thrill you in 2011, but one big name was absent: Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as it wasn't really fair to put arguably this year's biggest title against anything else. Link's previous adventure on Wii, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, was never developed with Wii in mind, having been designed as GameCube's..

Zelda: Skyward Sword is Half Finished, says Miyamoto

So expect it next Christmas

We got out first look at Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword at E3 this year with Shigeru Miyamoto's admittedly disappointing onstage demonstration, but more disappointing was the announcement the game would land in 2011. Early 2011, we dared to hope; hopes that have now been broken in two. Gaming website Pocket Lint recently...

Twilight Princess with High Res Textures Looks Fantastic

Fan project shines the game up

Zelda: Twilight Princess is knocking on four years old now: a venerable granddaddy in the Zelda line, it's only natural it's starting to show its age. Talented chap AaronLite has injected the game with some virtual Botox in the form of high resolution textures that turn the blurry bridges, grass and rocks of Hyrule into sharp detail. Sadly as the project uses the..

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...

Eiji Aonuma has confirmed the sword does have a personality but you can rule out one possibility: it's not Princess Zelda. Stating that the..
