The Oculus Rift has become a home for many recent Zelda projects lately. Ocarina of Time’s Kokiri Forest and a demo of the original The Legend of Zelda have recently been developed as proof of concepts on the Oculus Rift. And now a proof of concept of The Wind Waker has been developed for the Oculus Rift. The demo isn’t perfect; items such as the Bow and Hookshot don’t work correctly, and there are certain issues with objects rendering in the distance. But despite these graphical issues, the swordplay looks phenomenal, and flying around on the Deku Leaf looks like it would be a blast. It’s also wonderful to see the Zelda series so much love and getting the virtual reality treatment lately. You can check out the video below to see The Wind Waker in all of its virtual reality glory.
Many know that A Link Between Worlds features a Hero Mode just like several previous iterations of Zelda games; however, we know now why the Hero Mode is not available from the beginning of the game like The Wind Waker HD. Coming from Eiji Aonuma...
Many of us have fond memories of the 2006 Nintendo Monopoly board game, or at least memories of how much we wanted it. Well, Nintendo is once again taking a stroll into the world of board games with the announcement of Zelda and Pokemon themed Monopoly games.
Announced by USAopoly at last month’s International Toy Fair, the games will be coming out this September and will retail for $45.
This comes shortly after Iwata’s January announcement that Nintendo would be using character licences in new fields, so maybe we will see more off-beat products like this in the future.
Several months ago - Club Nintendo started offering the A Link Between Worldsposter set seen above. It quickly sold out after only a few days. Well, good news has come to those who did not get one - it is now available once more so go on by Club Nintendo and get it. This offer is on the North American Club Nintendo for only 500 coins.
A few months ago, a 3 piece poster set featuring artwork from A Link Between Worlds was available on Club Nintendo for 500 coins. Due to its predictable popularity, the poster went out of stock pretty soon after it was made available.
But fret not! The poster set has recently been restocked, so grab one while you still can!
USApoly has recently revealed that they will be releasing a Legend of Zelda-themed Monopoly board game, this was unveiled during Febuary’s American International Toy Fair, and has a suggested retail price of $45.00. The game will be anticipated to be released in August or early September 2014.
It appears that Link’s greatest weapon serves an alternative purpose outside of its ability to repel Ganon’s evil. This sword can also be used as a weapon against your partner’s ex-boyfriend, as it did for Zelda fan Eugene Thompson of Texas.
During an altercation with his girlfriend, and her ex, Eugene armed himself with a Master Sword replica. Apparently this decision did not end well for Eugene or the other guy, he explains,
I heard him heading to the bedroom where I was, so I jumped in the closet and I grabbed one of my replica swords, and I pulled it out and stood at the doorway, and he was coming down the hallway at me while I was yelling, ‘Go away, you don’t live here’ and he just walked right into the point of the sword, I don’t know if he thought it was a toy.
Just like the Zelda series, the hero did not end up with the girl, as Eugene was dumped by his girlfriend and told to pack up his swords and leave.
As we all know, Gerudo Valley will be making an appearance as a stage in the 3DS version of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. title. Today, Sakurai announced on Miiverse that Kotake and Koume will be in the aforementioned stage.
While we certainly don't know exactly what role they will play, it seems pretty obvious that they will serve as a stage hazard. A previous screenshot of the stage shows the bridge destroyed, as well as fire in the background. It makes sense that the twin grannies are the cause of this. The fire also seems to imply that there may be ice as well. Perhaps you will turn to ice (much like you would from a freezie) if you're unlucky enough to get in the way.
Be sure to stay tuned for more Zelda related SSB4 news!

Midna (ミドナ, Midona) is a character in the The Legend of Zelda game, Twilight Princess. She is a resident of the Twilight Realm and a descendant of the ancient Twili people. At first she seems to be a strange, dark creature with an agenda of her own and little regard for Link, but she ends up changing her mind. Midna is one of the Twili, a race descended from wielders of powerful and evil magic who were banished to an alternate dimension by the goddesses Din, Farore, and Nayru. This alternate dimension, out of which the sublimated descendants could only exist as shadows, eventually became known as the Twilight Realm. She remains as an imp-like creature through most of the game. (more...)
Amazing quality. Beautiful colors. Great artwork. This artwork has every reason to feature it, and no reasons not to. My vote goes with this image, definitely. And did I mention it's a large image which preserves quality as it's magnified? You can really see the detail.
