- Zelda Eternity
UPDATE: This tweet from the Nintendo of America Twitter confirms October 23rd as the release date for North America as well.
Today at the European videogame exposition Gamescom, Nintendo UK announced that the upcoming 3DS Zelda game Tri Force Heroes will be releasing on the 23rd of October 2015. Please note that this information can only be confirmed for the European version of the game, and as such may not be accurate to the Japanese or North American release dates, as staggering releases based on region is fairly commonplace for Nintendo-produced videogames. Nothing else pertaining to the game was officially announced at Gamescom as of yet, but the omnipresent and staggeringly reliable news staff at Zelda Eternity promise to update you if new information surfaces.
If you’re excited about the proposed release date or disappointed that Tri Force Heroes won’t be launching sooner, you can post your hype-and/or-rage-fueled rants in the sweet little comments section we hand-crafted just for that purpose. Personally, I’m practically dying to start parading around in my Princess Zelda outfit just thinking about this news. Not because of the game, mind, I just like doing that.

UPDATE: As it turns out, this is not a Legend of Zelda project, rather a “Zelda” project about novelist Zelda Fitzgerald. We apologize for the misunderstanding (although perhaps some of you are relieved to hear this).
A few months ago the internet was abuzz with rumors that an unprecedented live action Legend of Zelda series was coming to Netflix. A few weeks ago we reported that those rumors were being discredited by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata.
Well, just now, the folks over at Season Zero reported that the series is still a-go, this time being produced by Amazon for their streaming service. Not only that, but the series is already in production, with filming of the pilot happening in August.
The pilot is apparently going to air in early 2016, possibly to go along with the eventual release of Zelda for Wii U.
What do you think? Is this pilot a great idea, or the worst thing ever to happen to the series? Or do you not think it will happen at all? Let us know in the comments below.
Today, the hard hitting journalists at Zelda Eternity are coming to you with an earth-shattering exclusive report!
I’m warning you, the content of this article could change your entire world view, and some parts of it are very disturbing, so viewer (reader?) discretion is advised.
I was doing tireless research playing A Link to the Past when I noticed something. Take a look at this image:
Notice anything unusual? Look again:
Clearly the only explanation is that the entire Legend of Zelda series is a conspiracy by the Illuminati to do something nefarious, I’m sure.
Not convinced? Hit the jump for the rest of this hard-hitting exclusive.
In an unusual move for Nintendo, a recent video labeled as a “Zelda Development Update” was uploaded to the Nintendo of Europe YouTube channel, featuring only Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma directly addressing the audience to discuss the development of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title for Wii U.
Unfortunately, the message wasn’t that the game is going along swimmingly and we can expect it by Christmas. Instead, he reported on his decision to fulfill the Wii U’s capabilities and make Zelda for Wii U the best game it can possibly be, regardless of how it effects the game’s development schedule.
What this boils down to is that Zelda probably won’t be reaching store shelves until 2016. The good news is that, if all goes according to plan, our patience will reward us with possibly the greatest Zelda experience yet, featuring a rich open world and many new gameplay possibilities not yet conceived of by fans.
What do you think? Do you think Aonuma’s decision is the best in the long run, or can you simply not bear to wait? Let us know in the comments below.
Early last month, the internet was abuzz on account of a Wall Street Journal article claiming that Netflix was working on developing an original series based on The Legend of Zelda. This would have been a big deal, considering that Nintendo has been very cautious about allowing their IPs to be adapted into movies or TV series.
It was, however, not meant to be. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently went on record with Time Magazine to dispel the rumors:
“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information.”
What do you think? Are you disappointed? Do you think Nintendo shouldn’t allow their IPs to be adapted? Let us know in the comments below.
