Nintendo Japan’s official website features a very short description of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title for the Wii U. What’s interesting is it mentions that Link will be faced with a brand new nemesis. We will probably see Ganon in some capacity, but we will inevitably have to wait a while until we find out who this new nemesis is.
“This software is a Wii U Edition new legend of Zelda series. Faced with mysteries in the world of Zelda spread indefinitely without boundaries, a new link, a new nemesis.”
The best-selling LEGO Batman videogame franchise returns in an out-of-this-world, action-packed adventure. In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, the Caped Crusader joins forces with the super heroes of the DC Comics universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe. Now the greatest super heroes and the most cunning villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to collect the Lantern Rings and stop Brainiac before it’s too late.
