Last, but certainly not least...
Aardman Animation, the forces behind Wallace & Gromit, have just released the final video in their Zelda: Spirit Tracks series and we've got it for you. This final video has a little bit of a humorous spin to it, and once again is quite an impressive Flipnote feat. And for those of you who haven't yet read our Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks review, don't forget..
American fans get to stream 80's Zelda straight to their eyeballs
Remember the Eighties? The delightful era of one-hit wonders, atrociously awesome fashion and reams of bad videogame series? Well, Hulu has seen fit to stream The Legend of Zelda, a 13-part series, back into the 21st century so everyone can enjoy the "brilliance" of the...
The middle part of Aardman's Spirit Tracks trilogy has just arrived on our desk(top) here at Nintendo Life, and naturally we wanted to share it with you. Don't forget our review of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is already available if you're in any doubt of whether or not you need this latest lovely slice of handheld gaming. Don't forget to check out our YouTube channel for..
Aonuma continues cryptic discussion of new title
With all the secrecy surrounding the new Zelda title - for which we still don't have so much as a title or even anything other than a single piece of artwork - it wouldn't be a surprise to see it feature a minigame requiring you to get blood out of a stone. Eiji Aonuma continues to talk in tongues about his upcoming project, with an interview with..
Secret influence revealed!
It's practically raining Spirit Tracks stories today, but this story actually pre-dates Link's latest - it's the children's book that inspired Nintendo to create Spirit Tracks. Called "The Tracks Go On", it's a story where cute kids build the tracks for a train as it explores the land, with cutesy animals and all...
"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...
Not what you'd expect from a Spirit Tracks commercial
Nintendo has just been in touch with a video of the extended version of the Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks commercial being run in the US currently, and it's certainly not your average Zelda commercial. Staying away from the cutesy cartoon characters that typify the game itself, it takes place in...
On the right track or running out of steam?
Link's last outing, 2007's Phantom Hourglass, was a piece of portable paradise, showcasing all the DS's features with some wildly imaginative puzzles and unforgettable moments, and still remains one of the console's best titles. The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks takes all that was good about Phantom...
Producer Eiji Aonuma doesn't want to break "emotional attachment" to classic titles
In an excellent interview with IGN, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has explained why Nintendo doesn't follow the lead of other companies and remake vintage entries in the franchise: Whenever we have to think about the remake, we have to also think about the background, especially what kind of situation, what kind of..
A little insight into the Spirit Tracks.
The nice folks at Nintendo have just sent over the newest trailer for their upcoming DS release Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. The game is set to hit North American store shelves on December 7th and Europe retail shelves on December 11th. You can check out the new gameplay video that shows off the game's...
Zelda big boss sets up E3 revelation
For a few years now, Eiji Aonuma has been promising something of a reimagining of the Legend of Zelda series. Twilight Princess was touted as the last Zelda "as we know it", and now Mr Aonuma has spoken to the UK's Official Nintendo Magazine about some of the developments in the next title. "It is something we used to talk about with Mr Miyamoto,..
It's-a me, Leenk! Yippieeeee!
As the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet has been a staple of Nintendo ever since the plumber first showed the industry how 3D gaming is done. But why stop with Mario? Speaking to That Gaming Site (via GoNintendo), Martinet explained how he tried to move his way into Hyrule. I spoke to Mr. Miyamoto and said: “I wanna...
Limited preorder bonus still available
You may remember a few weeks ago we reported that Gamestation was stocking a limited edition figurine and tin set for Zelda: Spirit Tracks, but that they quickly sold out. Well, it seems they sold out because all the rest of the stock went to their parent company GAME. Yes, the pink-hued retailer are offering the figurines of Link and the Phantom as well as..
Swordplay and targeting get a boost
Details on the next installment in the Legend of Zelda series have been few and far between since Miyamoto unveiled concept art for the in-development title at E3 in June, depicting a swordless Link back-to-back with a mysterious, sword-like creature. Then we heard that the game wouldn't be radically different from previous entries. Oh, and we heard MotionPlus..
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks receives Ninty’s tin treatment
It appears Nintendo have taken a liking to special edition tins; well, in Europe at least. Just after the announcement that New Super Mario Bros. Wii will have a limited edition tin, it's been revealed that Gamestation will stock a special edition of the new Legend of Zelda: Spirit...
Phantom Hourglass sequel more advanced, says Mr Miyamoto
Of course, with a release date set for December it's going to be a long time before we can vouch for what Mr Miyamoto says, but in a recent - and very short - interview with MTV he did speak very briefly about Link's upcoming adventures on DS and Wii. Speaking about Spirit Tracks, he says that...
Just in time to fill your stocking!
Pull out your Christmas wish-lists everybody! The latest game in the Legend of Zelda series has been dated by Nintendo of America through their holiday line-up announcement for a December 7 release. There's no word as of yet when it will be out in European/Australasian territories. Though we don’t know a lot about the game, we know it involves a steam train..
British gamers will be having a Zelda-themed Christmas, according to retailer
Nintendo has yet to confirm the exact release window for its upcoming DS epic The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks but that hasn't stopped online retail giant Amazon from picking the date anyway. The important day for UK gamers is 4th December, with Amazon selling Link's latest caper for £24.95 (down from a RRP of..
Service as normal for Hyrule's favourite son, it would seem
So there's an all-new Wii Zelda in the works - this much we know. We also know that Shigeru Miyamoto wants the game to showcase a more 'mature' Link (although the concept art we've seen doesn't suggest as much). Bearing on mind that Twilight Princess had its critics, you'd expect this...
The Zelda series's unsung hero gets not one, but two new games!
The last two editions of weekly Japanese magazine Famitsu had mysterious teasers hinting at a sequel to 2006/2007's Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland for the DS. This week's edition has finally spilled the beans! Today just so happens to be the day of Japan's weekly Wii and DSi update - And from out of nowhere, Nintendo has..
So says Miyamoto
Nintendo game design legend Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed that the new Wii Zelda - which was announced at this year's E3 - is being built with the intention of exploiting the newly-released Wii MotionPlus accessory. For those of you that don't know, MotionPlus bolts onto the base of the Wii Remote and offers a more accurate detection of movement. Speaking to Wired, Miyamoto said:..
Is this is image that Miyamoto showed behind closed doors at E3?
A new Wii Zelda wasn't mentioned during Nintendo's E3 conference - much to the dismay of fanboys the world over. However, Shigeru Miyamoto later held meetings with the press behind closed doors, where he revealed that work is indeed happening on Link's latest adventure. Nothing was shown other than a piece of concept artwork,..
Famed game designer Shigeru Miyamoto sits down and talks about some of Nintendo's upcoming titles, including a new Wii Zelda title.
Shigeru Miyamoto has held a roundtable session to speak to the media regarding some of his own personal projects so we thought we'd talk about some of the highlights here. Miyamoto-san is quite excited about New Super...
Link cosplay costumes everywhere rejoice!
It's no wonder Link does the things he does. All he needs is a fairy in a jar and he can go and do whatever stupid thing he wants and the fairy'll just reanimate his corpse. Pretty handy when you're out battling pig demon things and whatnot. Your mortal enemy may not be a Machiavellian tyrant, but that doesn't mean you wouldn't look dashing with the latest..
Will Nintendo dumb down Link's latest adventure?
As you may have noticed, Nintendo has released its sales figures for the fiscal year end 2009. In the document there's plenty of predictions for the coming year, and one small item that has caught the eye of Nintendo fans worldwide. The report states that: The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks...will...
There's no just masking how great it still is
Ocarina of Time proved that the Zelda series was even more captivating in 3D than it was in 2D. It is still regarded as one of the greatest games ever made, but despite this, at the very end of the N64's life, it got a sequel that quite a few people missed out on – Majora's Mask. Not counting the...
Since it's launch in 1998, Miyamoto's masterpiece "The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time" has filled the number one spot of many "Best Game Ever" lists. But is it about to give up it's crown?
Currently ranked at number one on popular video game ratings system GameRankings.com, Ocarina Of Time has a rating average of 97.68%. The rating, which is calculated as an average from a collection of popular..
Rumour mill enters overdrive
We must stress this is a rumour with a capital ‘R’, but a story has come to our attention that suggests that US development house Retro Studios, better known as the chaps behind the successful Metroid Prime trilogy, is currently working on a new Zelda title that could be announced as early as E3. It’s probably unwise to comment either way at this stage but given..
Join Link on his first DS adventure
No doubt many of you have already seen the many positive reviews for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass dotted all over the Internet. We realize we're a bit late with our own critique of this highly anticipated videogame, but with a series like Zelda you simply have to take your time. It wouldn't be wise to...
Wii Virtual Console / Super Nintendo
A Link to a Classic
To put it simply, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is one of the finest RPGs in existence. Everything is perfect - the bold lines and subtle pastel-tones of the graphics, the triumphant rendition of the Zelda theme, the excellent yet simple combat system, the brilliantly conceived logic puzzles. Nintendo left nothing to...
