One of the games that I suspect the majority of you are looking forward to next year on the Wii U is The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. We don’t know too much about the remaster other than it is being developed by Tantalus Media. However, the official website for Nintendo Sweden has revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will support both the Wii Remote and Nunchuck, if that’s the control scheme you would prefer. Of course, you can also use the trusty Wii U GamePad as your control method of choice.
Zelda fan website, Zelda Informer, recently conducted a survey to its readers which resulted in 9,461 people taking part and answering questions on all things Zelda.
The survey was made up of questions such as – What is the first Zelda game you played? The results revealed that the The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the most common answer with 39%:
Another question asked Zelda Informer readers which title was their favourite. The result ended up with Twilight Princess and Ocarina of Time coming very close in the ranks, however Twilight Princess won by 1%:
The survey also has many more questions and insights, including readers scoring their experience with each title out of ten, and also predictions on when they think Zelda Wii U will be released. You can check it out in full here.
Black Friday is fast approaching and we’ve covered a number of the deals that will be available to US consumers. We have now learnt that Walmart is apparently selling The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS for $25 each. So if you’ve yet to pick up these fantastic games then be sure to pay Walmart a visit on Black Friday or visit the website.

The team over at GameXplain have taken a closer look at The Legend of Zelda Wii U footage that was showcased during this week’s Nintendo Direct. The footage that was shown off was only around 10 seconds long but that hasn’t stopped GameXplain from looking at the video in detail. Nintendo reconfirmed that the game will be released on the Wii U sometime next year.
Pedalpowerluigi and Einstein95 have discovered a Great Fairies outfit for Link in his latest adventure The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. It looks as though it is the same model as the one found in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds which suggests that it is a prototype. Still, it is certainly an interesting discovery!
Me and einstein95 found a weird outfit resembling Great Fairies from A Link Between Worlds from the files of the game. Looking at Link’s face suggests that this was probably an in-progress model from when ALBW Link was made into the Toon Link artstyle for TFH.
The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has once again reassured Wii U owners that the next chapter in the Zelda franchise will be making its way to the console. If you’ve been on various forums you may have seen speculation that the title is geared to be a launch game for Nintendo’s next platform the NX or that Nintendo is planning another Twilight Princess situation by releasing it on both platforms. All we know is it is definitely coming to the Wii U.
We actually have different teams. Sometimes people on the handheld team do work on the consoles, but for this it was a separate team. I want to assure you that the Wii U Zelda was not delayed in any way because of Triforce Heroes.
Super talented gamer Runnerguy2489 has managed to beat the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64 with a blindfold on. The amazing feat took him 103 hours and required extensive knowledge of the areas in the game. I’m not entirely sure how he managed it, but he eventually did. You can watch a video of the painstaking task, above.
