Nintendo's humorous shareholder Q&A summarized photo
Nintendo's humorous shareholder Q&A summarized
by Jordan Devore

Jonathan told you how Nintendo's 74th annual general meeting of shareholders came across like a bad comments section. Now, here's that meeting in-depth as translated by Nintendo itself.

Notably, CEO Satoru Iwata was absent due to his health (please understand), but Shigeru Miyamoto and Genyo Takeda were present to field most of the questions. Some of them were pretty out there, like the one from a shareholder who proclaimed he was angry because he didn't understand gaming and god forbid Nintendo talk about gaming at its meetings. Good stuff.

If you'd rather have the short (but not too short) version, I've summarized some of the best bits.

Egoraptor finally decided to get back to Sequelitis

He sang, he danced, and starred in an awful Pokémon rap video. Seriously -- it was really bad. And now Egoraptor is finally back to doing what we love best: his awesome Sequelitis video series. In the latest entry, he...

In Japan, you can get a scarf with Hyrule Warriors

One game I wasn't expecting to be so into at E3 was Hyrule Warriors. I'm not a Dynasty Warriors fan, and I'm not even a committed Zelda player -- but the combination of those two franchises feels, at this moment in time, irre...

Next Legend of Zelda won't be a repeat of Skyward Sword's lengthy tutorials

Next year's The Legend of Zelda for Wii U won't have tutorials that feel like obstacles, series producer Eiji Aonuma told Kotaku last week at E3. That was a complaint some players had with Skyward Sword, but the more recent A...

Hold the phone! After word got out from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma that the star of the E3 video might not be male in next year's Wii U game, the internet was set ablaze with rumors and speculation. All of that...

Zelda Williams likely teasing Majora's Mask 3DS for 'surprise' announcement

Zelda Williams has had an interesting presence at E3 2014, and given her namesake it's not surprising to see her hanging around. But regarding her "extra special" surprise at E3 that we touched upon late in May, she may have ...

The main character of The Legend of Zelda Wii U may not be Link

Yesterday's reveal of The Legend of Zelda on Wii U got many people excited. With the tease of a new visual style and a more open world to explore, there was yet another reason for people to consider purchasing a Wii U. Howeve...

Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule photo
Hyrule Warriors is more Warriors than Hyrule
by Dale North

You knew that upcoming Wii U title Hyrule Warriors would be a blend of Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Nintendo's Legend of Zelda. But I'm here to tell you that the gameplay is much more like Dynasty Warriors than I thought it would be. Not that that's a bad thing.

The Zelda side is like the yummy icing on the top.

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.

Get stuck in the metal with this 17-minute tribute to video games

What's more metal than a 17-minute instrumental medley featuring some of your favorite video game tracks? Anything Nathan Explosion touches, but that's beside the point. This impressive project was three years in the making,...

DLC confirmed for Wii U brawler Hyrule Warriors

It sounds ridiculous, but Hyrule Warriors is one of my most anticipated games of the year. As someone who plays both Dynasty Warriors and Zelda games, I'm really interested in seeing how this mash-up pans out. ...

Weekend Playlist: Zelda beats you probably have not heard

Not going to lie, Hyrule Warriors has me pretty excited this week. Seeing Link in HD glory really gets me going – so much so that Ive almost forgot about Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8. Perhaps I am exaggerating a bit, bu...

I'm still surprised Hyrule Warriors exists

I mean, who would have thought we'd get a sequel to cult classic The Warriors this late, and as a Nintendo cross over, no less? What's next, How Hyrule? Fast Times at Ridgemont Hyrule? No, but seriously, Dynasty Warriors: The...
