Infographics. Ah, the marketing of the Gods, where nice art assets are aligned with some quirky facts and details. They're rather popular, which is why large companies task employees with creating them on a regular basis.
Despite a rather peculiar and sketchy history with Amazon, the retail giant, Nintendo of America has nevertheless shared an infographic posted by the Amazon Video Games account. It highlights the 10 years of history to be found if you combine The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and Hyrule Warriors Legends, the two most recent franchise releases. Technically more history is covered in the Koei Tecmo title, but let's not get into that.
Despite its resolution and tiny text being hard to read that are little 'facts' to be found, such as Wolf Link being able to run at over 35 miles per/hour. Not bad, wolfie, not bad.
In any case it's nice to see a sizeable retail social media account plugging Nintendo games. If you scroll through the Amazon Games account (linked below) you can also see it shared individual segments of this Zelda infographic over recent days; these are much easier to read. It's also been promoting its pre-order edition of Bravely Second: End Layer, too.
The Legend of Zelda is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, of course, and we're hoping it'll be one to remember.
I wonder if and when Nintendo will release the wolf link Amiibo for sale individually. I bought TP HD digitally through the eshop.
I'm loving Hyrule Warriors Legends so far.
@HyruleHero things like that are a big reason why I won't go all digital.
They used that ancient "guys cheering on sofa" meme at the top
Marketing of the gods*
@Dankykong that's because that meme is actually an image of those guys reacting to the announcement of Twilight Princess.
Well for Zelda 30 years Anniversary, I hope The Legend Of Zelda: Four Swords, comes back to the 3ds Eshop again. I missed it and would really appreciate to get it.
I like the top piece with the IGN meme. Peer makes everything better.
Agreed @SMW. Because of him, and the fact I couldn't come up with a good name that fit what needed to be done, my first Mario Maker level back in September is named "Get the thing"
Zelda: Wand of Gamelon isn't on there :/
@TheY it's all I would want. You can't send it from dsi to 3ds so I hope for the 30th anniversary we get a final chance before the 3ds is dead.
@Xaessya The CD-i games are criminally unrepresented in Hyrule Warriors Legends. I mean, they have "The King of Hyrule" as a character, and it isn't King Harkinian. Lost opportunity.
@James_mussell98 Same here. By the way, awesome icon. I love Aegislash and the Master Sword!
ugh, too small. didn't read.
@James_mussell98 I would say if they wanted the dsi shop to go out with a bang put it on again before it closes for good! Or.. Actually, it'll probably be just on 3ds so it could come anytime this year presumably near Zelda U!
Remaster and port. Long live Zelda.
@HyruleHero Probably by mid Summer so that the game has some actual sells. If you can't wait I recommend going to the Japanese Amazon site and getting it from there. I bought the individual pack a few weeks ago for MSRP and the shipping came to $8. Totally worth it if you're not into Twilight Princess.
I'd love for nintendo to release a big HD collection for the Wii U and 3DS of the games...that would be nice for the anniversary. It would also be nice if Skyward Sword comes out on Wii U in HD (especially now since Twilight Princess did) with an Amiibo with that too. Here's to hoping for a good year for us Zelda fans!
@HyruleHero - Yeah, I wonder when they'll release that.
It's not been bad so far with Twilight Princess HD n Hyrule Warriors Legends just the big one too come can't wait .
@Mr_Zurkon I'm gonna go ahead and guess you're playing it on a New nintendo 3DS.
@RoomB31 of course, I wouldn't have bothered getting it in for the old 3DS after reading how it performs.
What a terrible infographic. It feels like the "infos" in there have nothing to do with the games at all.
