Nothing gets the blood pumping like new Zelda details, and the July issue of EDGE magazine has got the junk you need.

Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that A Link to the Past 2 will run at 60 frames per second in 3D mode, whereas almost all 3DS games have been capped at 30 fps in 3D. "The faster the framerate," he explains, "the more stable the 3D effect, so 60 fps is a big deal." The 3D effect isn't mandatory for any puzzles, so you don't have to use it if you don't want to.

Regarding the unannounced Wii U Zelda, Aonuma states that his team will introduce many unexpected elements never before seen in the series. On the flip side, he also desires to move away from Zelda before his time with Nintendo is up: "I want to try all sorts of new things before it's too late -- I don't want to get to the end of my career and only have worked on Zelda. But every time I come up with some good new ideas, they end up being used in a Zelda game!"

Ain't that a motherf*cker.

Best Buy is doing buy one, get one for 3DS games this week

Like the DS before it, the 3DS is becoming one of my favorite platforms. Now that we are several years into its life, it has a pretty great selection of first and third-party games. There are enough now that I have fallen beh...more

All of A Link Between Worlds as a single painting

Remember when Chris Carter reviewed A Link Between Worlds? I don't see that part of history in this painting, but this painting by DeviantArt's EternaLegend is still pretty cool. Liking that Ganon.more

Deals: Target will have the 3DS XL Zelda bundle for $150

We already knew Target was going to have 3DS XLs for $149.99 on Black Friday, but that was just for the handheld systems. Now we know that the Zelda 3DS XL bundle will also be going for the same price. Yup, $149.99 with The ...more

I should have made Chris post this Zelda accolades video

I'm just giving you a hard time, Chris. I always stand behind our team's reviews, and I'm not concerned with what the other sites have said. But I love The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds so much. It's so good! Consider this hazing for your new job role. Tee hee hee.more

Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

In recent years, Zelda games have gotten a tad too flowery. What was once a true open world adventure involving a hero thrown into the great unknown with the ability to explore to his heart's content, has become something els...more

Opinion: Future Zeldas should make note of the 3DS game

At some point, there will be an HD Zelda game and, for our sake, I hope it does away with the constant hand-holding and extended intros that were present in Skyward Sword, among other games. Right now, none of us have any idea what Nintendo has planned for the next coming of Zelda on the Wii U, but one thing's for sure -- I hope it looks to A Link Between Worlds for guidance.more

This Link Between Worlds live-action TV spot exists

It's better than those live action Pokemon X and Y commercials, I guess. It's sensible that Nintendo doesn't want to hinge a TV spot on 3DS resolution alone, I suppose. And instead of paying for a full CG trailer, just make ...more
