Don't get your hopes up just yet
May 12
Emulation’s in a weird legal grey area that’s all kinds of fascinating to me. The actual bit of software designed to play ROMs is legal, but the BIOS file that makes it run? You usually have to acquire them throug... read

Nintendo Power's amazing A Link to the Past comic is back


Reprinted for posterity
May 05
Oh hell yes. Viz Media has reprinted the comic adaptation of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Amazon has it as a paperback for $13.89. Illustrated by Shotaro Ishinomori of Cyborg 009 fame, the art is as wonderful now as it was back in the Nintendo Power days. I neglected to pre-order the book in January, so this is a pleasant surprise indeed. [Via Tiny Cartridge] read

Arguably the biggest Wii U game of the year, Zelda, won't release in 2015 after all. Or, at least, Nintendo is "no longer making a 2015 release [its] number one priority," to put it another way. In a video update, producer E... read
