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..

Indigestion medication not included

Do you remember the Nintendo Cereal System from 1988? It let people who just couldn't get enough of Mario and Zelda to pour them into a bowl and eat them, keeping their spirits (but, sadly, not powers) with you all throughout the day by way of two different types of cereal: fruit-flavored for Mario, berry for Zelda. It came with some neat collectible cards, and..

Zelda Reorchestrated's Ocarina of Time Album Cleaned Up and Ready to Go

Old and improved!

Soundtracks as good as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's are few and far between. Now over a decade old, those sweeping symphonics sound, on a technical level, a bit aged thanks to the N64's compressed cartridge medium. Good thing the series has a very talented fanbase with groups like ZREO then, who painstakingly reorchestrate the music from all entries. So painstakingly..

Wanted to "intensify the multiplayer" in sequel

One of the upsides of buying a Wii Zapper, besides being a nice +1 to your collection of somewhat useless bits of plastic, was getting your hands on Link's Crossbow Training. We daresay that was the only reason a lot of people bought the peripheral [cough -Ed.] as Link is as powerful an endorsement to Nintendo fans as Billy Mays is/was to home..

"Weatherman is last Aardman Flipnote" statement proves erroneous

Contrary to our earlier reports that The Weatherman was Aardman's final Flipnote creation, we've just had word about this rather cool Zelda animation from those talented Brits. Obviously a neat way to promote the new Zelda: Spirit Tracks game, it's just as cute as the title itself and well worth a watch, if just for the payoff at the..
