We could be getting The Legend of Zelda Wii U sooner than expected, if Amazon Italy is to be believed. The retailer just changed the release date for the game to June 26th and now they’ve changed it again to say December 31st. We’re not entirely sure how far along the game actually is and the last time we saw Zelda Wii U was at the Game Awards 2014. A summer release date sure would be good though.
Thanks, NasiDe and Cutthemac
Perhaps GameStop Italy are privy to more information than the rest of us as they have started advertising The Legend of Zelda Wii U with a spring release date. The date appears to be plucked out of nowhere as a spring release date hasn’t been mentioned by Nintendo and seems a little too soon. Still, GameStop Italy are listing the game for release this spring which doesn’t make too much sense at present.
Yesterday we found out that the Nintendo UK Store would be stocking the lovely Xenoblade Chronicles 3D coverplates for the New Nintendo 3DS and now today they’ve announced that they will also be stocking two Zelda themed coverplates. Both of these will be available to purchase for £12.99 and are available to pre-order right now.
If you’re in Europe you may have been prompted to update your copy of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. We’ve no idea what the latest update to the game addresses, but it’s certainly worth updating your game if you can. It would certainly be handy to have some patch notes. Some people on Twitter are stating that they’re getting an error when trying to update, so maybe it’s not ready just yet.
The video embedded above is actually a 4K video so it’s super duper sharp and if you’ve got a display that supports 4K then you’re very fortunate. Anyway, Nintendo of America caught up with the legendary Eiji Aonuma and Koji Kondo at the Legend of Zelda Symphony to talk all things Majora’s Mask and Zelda. The video is also the perfect excuse to give those that haven’t been a glimpse of the majestic concert. You can check out the dates for the Legend of Zelda Symphony, right here.
Thanks, White Eagle.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is one of the most beloved games in the Legend of Zelda series, but did you know that the original development team only consisted of 40 people? Well, that what’s Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma told Kotaku. Not a bad team size for what is an exceptional game.
Great news if you’re a Zelda fan and reside in Europe as Nintendo has announced that the two Zelda themed faceplates that were previously announced for Japan will be coming to Europe on February 27th. You’ll only be able to use the faceplates if you have a New Nintendo 3DS and not a New Nintendo 3DS XL. With that said, they look like an essential purchase.
