PSA: Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary is back on the eShop photo
PSA: Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary is back on the eShop
by Chris Carter

A few years back, Nintendo held a pretty awesome promotion -- for a limited time, you could grab The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition absolutely free on the Nintendo 3DS. For those of you who haven't heard of it, it's a fully fledged game that allowed up to four people to go at it on a quest against Link's nemesis Vaati.

But there's one major addition to this newly minted Anniversary DSi version, which is a rework from the original on the GBA -- you can beat the game by yourself, which wasn't previously possible. Now, Nintendo is running a new promotion where you can grab the game for free over the course of the next few days. Sadly, this offer seems to only be for North Americans at this time, and DSi portables won't work -- you'll need a 3DS to access the eShop.

Either way, go grab it! If you need further convincing you can check out my thoughts here, but really, this one is a no-brainer.

Travel to Gerudo Valley with this awesome violin cover

Okay, Taylor Davis is officially a badass. Late last year we saw her dressed as Sheik and playing a couple of the ocarina songs from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. She took the simple melodies and transformed them...

Why I'm glad The Legend of Zelda's Hyrule isn't real

I always wanted to travel to The Legend of Zelda's Hyrule, among other amazing fantasy worlds I've virtually visited; that is until I saw these amazingly disturbing pictures by artist Nate Hallinan. Seriously look at that skulltula... WTF! And I thought Australia had it bad when it came to eight-legged critters.

Live-action Legend of Zelda fan film is intense

Hollywood produced video game adaptations are traditionally a train wreck, which is a major factor in why I never want to see Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda portrayed on the silver screen. But while I may hold firm to this b...

Majora's Mask Skull Kid featured in live action short

Here is an exceptionally good short film based on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and its central antagonist, the Skull Kid. Dreamlike and without spoken dialogue, it relates how Skull Kid came into possession of Maj...

Hey gang! Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday, but there wasn't a whole lot of news -- so here's a rundown of today's big news, including yesterday's big ol' Nintendo Direct, that new realistic medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Xbox One's upcoming documentary series on the E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial Atari 2600 game. No, seriously.

Review: NES Remix photo
Review: NES Remix
by Chris Carter

If you're a veteran of the NES era, you've played its countless classics many times before. You may have bought them multiple times, either out of nostalgia or for convenience when a new system arrives. Modern gamers may scoff at the notion, but classic-chasers persevere, because it makes them happy.

Leave it to Nintendo to invent a new way to play all these old games yet again in the form of the Wii U game NES Remix. The good news is, it's actually pretty fun -- if you can still stomach playing them.

Hyrule Warriors is Dynasty Warriors with Link in it
by Kyle MacGregor

Nintendo has lost its mind. (In a good way. I think.) During this morning's Nintendo Direct presentation, company president Satoru Iwata revealed a collaboration with Tecmo Koei tentatively called Hyrule Warriors.

The working title looks to combine Dynasty Warriors' hack and slash formula with The Legend of Zelda's universe. Weird! It's coming to Wii U sometime in 2014.

3DS surpasses 10 million sold

Nintendo sends word that Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds helped push up hardware sales. This makes sense to me as both titles are in my top five for the year. Hardware sales for Ninten...

Club Nintendo has sold out of the new Zelda posters

Last week, Nintendo put up a set of shiny new posters for Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, coming in at 500 Coins. But it appears as if they've promptly sold out not even a week after the game's release. Why bother telling you t...
