Legend of Zelda celebrates 25th anniversary

One of the most iconic franchises in the business, Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda, celebrates its 25th anniversary today. This is the day that the original Zelda went on sale in Japan, kickstarting a series that would sell 59 million units worldwide.

There have been seventeen games in total, with this year seeing the release of Ocarina of Time on the 3DS and Skyward Sword on the Wii. 

It's strange how a series can be so repetitive and yet feel so fresh. There's a certain magic to Zelda that I don't think any other series has managed to bottle quite so successfully. Each new Zelda game feels like reacquainting with an old friend, albeit one who's done something with their hair that you can't quite work out.

So, happy birthday, Zelda! Please let us know which Zelda game was your favorite (has to be Wind Waker for me!).

Everyone is fabulous in this Japanese New 3DS commercial

Nintendo has a New 3DS TV spot making the rounds, and it shows off some strange new outfits for some iconic Nintendo characters. I'm talking top hat Link, King Pikachu, and a Bowser that's too swanky for his own good. In all...more

Sign me up for 3DS RPG Legend of Legacy

Legend of Legacy sounded pretty good on paper. Honestly, I'm easy ; they had me at '3DS RPG' already. But look at it! Look at that pop-up environmental effect! That music!  Watercolors! Shading! Big heads! The games' &n...more
