Legend of Zelda Wii U 'change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food'

The Legend of Zelda for Wii U missed its 2015 release and didn't show up in Nintendo's 2016 financials forecast either, though current scuttlebutt is guessing Zelda Wii U launches at the end of this year, right with Nintendo's new "NX" cons...

This fan-crafted Deku Mask from Majora looks too real

While I wasn't huge on Majora's Mask as a kid, it did grow on me, just like a few other Zelda games. MasenkoProps seems like they're still pretty big on it though, and for good reason -- it has some of the best lore, locales, and ...
