- Zelda Eternity
At E3, Nintendo announced a new Zelda game called Tri Force heroes, which looks something like a cross between A Link Between Worlds and Four Swords, focusing on 3-player co-op puzzles. Many were skeptical of the new game, thinking that the puzzle solving didn’t look fun or that it wasn’t Zelda for Wii U, but it has been somewhat vindicated in the eyes of critics by the gameplay that was revealed in the following weeks.
This video, featuring commentary by Japanese and English speaking developers of the game, shows off many of the cooperative and fashion-based elements of the game. It also shows the communication panels, which, being quite a bit more extensive than the communication in Splatoon, work to compensate for the lack of voice chat without any of the negativity.
What do you think? Will you be picking up Tri Force heroes when it launches later this year? Or will you be petitioning to have it cancelled? Let us know in the comments below!
North America has been waiting for a proper 30 second TV spot for Majora’s Mask 3D, and here it is. A bit cheesy, sure, but it’s still nice to see mainstream acknowledgement for this game, as well as all the new gameplay.
Don’t be misled by the ending which only says that it’s for New Nintendo 3DS, as this game will also work on regular 3DS and 2DS.
Be sure to pick this one up on when it comes out on February 13th, along with the New Nintendo 3DS XL, in North America.

If you were on the fence about whether the graphical upgrades were a sufficient reason to grab the upcoming 3DS remake of Majora’s Mask, this new video from IGN comparing the two versions side-by-side should put all of your doubts at ease. One look will make clear the mind-boggling extent to which the N64 classic has been enhanced.
What’s particularly surprising is that the graphical upgrades were given not only to models and textures, but also to the character animations, making them appear much more fluid and expressive than in the original.

Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct today focusing on stuff launching this spring. For those of you who missed it, here’s all the Zelda related stuff they announced.
In the Majora’s Mask 3D department, it’s been revealed that the game will be released on February 13, so mark your calendars! This is to coincide with the release of the New Nintendo 3DS XL in North America on the same day.
It got even better with the reveal of a Majora’s Mask themed limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come bundled with Majora’s Mask 3D.
Moving on to Hyrule Warriors DLC, it has been announced that the second pack will be themed around Majora’s Mask and feature Tingle and Young Link as playable characters. You read that right. Tingle as a playable character. This will be a must-buy when it comes out on February 5th.
You can view the entire Nintendo Direct here.
What do you think? Will you be picking up that limited edition 3DS XL? Will Tingle be your new main in Hyrule Warriors? Let us know in the comments, and keep the conversation going.
At today’s Nintendo Direct, the long rumored Nintendo 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was officially confirmed! Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to return to the grim world of Termina in spring 2015. This time, it will be enhanced with graphics and mechanics resembling the Ocarina of Time remake.
Update: A special edition of Majora’s Mask 3D will be released around the same time. It will include a steelbook case, Majora’s Mask pin, Poster, and a physical copy of the game. So far, this special edition is confirmed only for Europe. We can hope that it goes global.

We will have more information as it comes.

A recent job posting over at Grezzo, the company behind the Ocarina of Time 3D remake, has hinted that they may be working on a new Zelda-related project, asking potential employees, “Would you like to make a Legend with us?” While this confirms nothing, all signs point to the early stages of Majora’s Mask 3D development. We’ll keep you updated as this story develops, and be sure to stick with Zelda Eternity for everything Zelda!
Today’s Nintendo Direct focusing on the new Super Smash Bros games for Wii U and 3DS has been highly anticipated since its announcement, but no one could have predicted the glut of information that teased fans and made the release seem so far off. Out of that information, Zelda has most certainly gotten its fair share, so let’s get started. Keep in mind that these images have been print-screened by this intrepid reporter straight from the stream archive, so you won’t find them anywhere else!
See the specifics after the jump.
A recent “Pic of the day” Miiverse post from Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game the classic bottled fairies from The Legend of Zelda series will be appearing as an item. Not much is known about their use, although Sakurai stated that they can “even heal fighters who have accumulated over 100% damage.”
It’s unclear what exactly this means, although it is something for Zelda fans to look forward to when the game launches for Wii U and 3DS sometime this year.
