For the past few years, one of the major players in the Zelda translating scene has undoubtedly been GlitterBerri - it's largely due to her that we've been receiving accurate translations of information contained within the Hyrule Historia, the (so far) Japan-only Zelda timeline, history and art book. Nintendo Gamer recently conducted an interview with GlitterBerri, and while there isn't much in the way of new information about the Historia in this interview, it's certainly an interesting read for those who are interested in translation or the Zelda series in general. Jump inside for a few of the highlights from the interview....

It's your server guy that never posts. Just have a couple updates I'd like to share!First off, a lot of you wonder who I am or what I've been up to. I don't have a lot of time to put towards video gaming these days, but lately I've taken up the handle of Music Journalist over at my personal blog, DennisWyman.com. In fact, just recently, I sent up a new recurring feature over there, "This Week In Playlists," where I talk about recent discoveries and addictions. Included in this week's roundup, is the music video for We Come Together by Goldfish, stylized as an 8-bit video game and full of references to several major Nintendo series.Secondly, we just underwent a MASSIVE server overhaul the past few days. For everybody that has been wondering what's been going on with the intermittent downtime, that was me. Things should be sorted out in that department for now though.See you around, kiddos!...

Zelda Reorchestrated has been experimenting with their monthly preview posts these past months, so there hasn't been a public music preview in awhile. However, March is nearly upon us and the ZREO team has not let us down. As a reminder, the preview is for ZREO's long-awaited and much-anticipated Twilight Symphony project, in which they've reorchestrated all the major arrangements from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess to give it that full-orchestra sound....

We haven't had a fan artist of the month in a long time. There wasn't one for December because the site was down, and there wasn't one in January because posting that giant Skyward Sword art feature made me think I had already posted a Fan Artist of the Month. Unfortunately, I didn't notice my mistake until the first week of February, but the ongoing art series is back with our February fan artist: Dan Hipp. Hipp's artwork, while featuring numerous Nintendo characters, is also largely focused around video game, comic, and film pop culture as a whole, often leading to many crossover pieces. His style focuses on simple linework with an emphasize on line texture and color. His pieces are not only great visually, but are also very entertaining....

Video not working? Try our YouTube mirror. There's something magical about that new trailer feel - especially Zelda trailers. Watching footage for the first time, coming away excited, with fresh first-glance impressions and an imagination for what lies behind the bits and pieces you've seen so far. Skyward Sword's been out for three months now, but Nintendo's still managed to rekindle some of that magic with another trailer, dubbed the "Epic Trailer" - and it really is epic. It reminded me of some of my first-glance impressions of the game, things that I guessed from those short glimpses - some of them right, others wrong. Hop inside for some of my early thoughts on the game based on previous footage, and share some of your own first impressions in the comments!...

Ah, the Master Ball. I never actually wind up using it in most Pokémon games, partly out of pride, partly out of the fact that I'd rather save it just in case I run across some kind of insanely necessary Shiny. At the end of the day, though, you really are supposed to use it, and so inevitably I should give it a try on something, and I'm always tempted to insta-catch something ridiculous... like Caterpie. What kinds of Pokémon have you caught with the Master Ball? Share your experiences in the comments!...
