Aonuma Confirms Midna Is A Twilight Princess DLC Character In Hyrule Warriors

Eiji Aonuma has confirmed via Miiverse that Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be a playable character in the second DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors which will be released November 27th. Aonuma revealed the news via Miiverse and said that Midna will retain her look from the end of Twilight Princess. Here’s what he said.

“When I was developing Twilight Princess, I thought it was such a waste to let a beautiful princess like her only appear in the ending. Now Koei Tecmo Games has made my wish to see more of her come true. Twili Midna’s weapon is the Mirror of Twilight, which appeared in Twilight Princess. This mirror was destroyed at the end of that game, but it’s pretty amazing in Hyrule Warriors.”

“In fact, I can’t describe in words what’s so amazing about it, so I hope you’ll download this DLC pack and see for yourself. In addition to Twili Midna, the Twilight Princess Pack includes new weapons, costumes and an adventure map, so if you played through the original game, they should contribute to the fun you’ll have in Hyrule Warriors. (For one of the costumes, you can dress Link up as a certain familiar character from the Zelda series. It may make you say “”Wow!”” so I hope you’ll look forward to it.) The second DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors, the Twilight Princess Pack, will be released globally on November 27!”

Thanks, Twilight Warrior

 

Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D Will Change Up The Boss Fights And Also Add Fishing

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask series producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed in the latest edition of Famitsu magazine that he is planning to switch things up in the remastered version on the Nintendo 3DS.

“We didn’t make the game easier. There aren’t any extra hints thrown at you when you’re not sure what to do, but there are all kinds of other mechanisms in the system that I think you’ll notice.”

“While I can’t say much about it… one thing— a boss fight has been changed. Upon trying a boss fight on the original version for the first time in a while after playing the remake, it’s like, ‘how do I beat this guy again?’ it’s that type of content.”

“You’ll get to fish! Although… it makes you wonder whether you’ll have that free time to fish in the world of Majora’s Mask,” Aonuma say with a laugh. “So we’ve added fishing ponds. Two of them, too. There might be something monstrous you could fish out, so please look forward to it.”

“Exactly. ‘I know that the world is about to end, but here I am fishing. awesome!’ are just some of the feelings you can get from it,” Aonuma replied with a laugh.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Almost Starred Link

Nintendo director Shinya Hiratake has revealed that Link from The Legend of Zelda was going to be the star of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Before Captain Toad made his debut in Super Mario 3D World, Hiratake wanted to create a game consisting of diorama-like levels where jumping wasn’t allowed. Since characters in the Mario universe are typically known for their jumping skills, a small team of designers developed a tech demo in which Link was the main protagonist and presented it to the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto.

“We must have done too good of a job with our demo,” said Hiratake, “because during our presentation, Mr. Miyamoto asked us how we were planning on bringing these dioramas into production. He thought we were pitching him an actual physical product design.”

“We like to think that Mr. Miyamoto finally realized the vision we had for a diorama those many years ago.”

The Legend Of Zelda Majora’s Mask 3DS Vs N64 Comparison Video

Didn’t spot the differences in the recently released trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3DS compared to the original Nintendo 64 version? Well NWR has kindly produced a video which showcases the visual changes between the two versions. We also found out yesterday that Majora’s Mask 3D will also take full advantage of the New Nintendo 3DS, but we’ve yet to find out what additional functionality there will be on the newer hardware.

Thanks, John

Nintendo UK Creates Zelda Majora’s Mask Song In Tomodachi Life

Nintendo UK has been super creative and produced a Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask song in the utterly bizarre Tomodachi Life.

Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D Will Take Advantage Of The New Nintendo 3DS

The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D will somehow take advantage of the New Nintendo 3DS and the power it offers. Aonuma says that both versions will look identical, but there’s some changes that will be announced at a future date. What that means remains unclear, but it will certainly be interesting to see the difference between the two versions once the game is nearer to release.

“Please wait for the opportunity to discuss how playing on the New 3DS differs at a later date.”
