Back at E3 the world was blown away by the Nintendo’s presentation of the Wii U. The release of a new console from Nintendo and all the cool features it brings with it is more than enough to get fans hyped up for a new console launch. From gaming in HD with motion controls to [...]

I think we’re at a bit of a turning point in the Zelda franchise. Nothing as major as a reinvention and it probably won’t mean any significant changes to the standard formula we’ve seen in every Zelda game, but a slightly new flavor in terms of the setting and story. I wrote a broad article [...]

In this mailbag we’re finally moving to a few more broad questions that aren’t about Skyward Sword, although that’s likely largely due to Hyrule Histora. Either way, most of the Skyward Sword questions are largely spoiler-free this time around, save for a few at the end. There’s 11 questions in all. View the mailbag here [...]

Alright, another non-mailbag video for you guys. This one’s another video response to Cody of Zelda Universe, but in a number of ways it’s also its own video too, as I expanded off his topic a lot. Be sure to check out his video before watching this one. You can find my video after the [...]

Nick Cowen of The Guardian recently interviewed Skyward Sword producer Eiji Aonuma in preparation for the upcoming release and the twenty fifth anniversary. During the interview Aonuma mentioned that a few items intended for Skyward Sword actually had to be removed from the game but they just might appear in a future Zelda on the [...]

When the Nintendo Wii U was shown to us during the E3, there was a large list of websites Nintendo reserved for the system. They reserved a number of sites, but were unable to get the sites wiiu.com or nintendowiiu.com. The wiiu site was registered back in 2004, while the nintendowiiu site was registered June 7th. Neither of the two sites seem to be controlled by Nintendo. This shouldn't be too hard to solve. The traffic to the two sites shortly after the E3 conference skyrocketed, since the wiiu.com site had a total of zero registered visitors before June. Wiiu.com is currently a Shopping.com affiliate site to display ads. You can't find out who the owner is, but with all the people posting about it, I think we can get them to give it up....

A patent for the Wii U controller, filed back in February, has shed some light on inner-workings of the new controller for Nintendo's upcoming system. However, it has been several months since it was initially filed, and the design has most likely changed since then, as Nintendo has received feedback from third-party companies who were sent Wii U development kits. With that in mind, the majority of inner-design is obviously unchanged. So what secrets does this patent reveal? ...

The Wii U is going to be great. We all know that. We have our worries, but we're going to love it, just as we have loved each console before it. However, while the Wii U will be a more powerful system than the Playstation 3, the Wii isn't. Yet the Wii and Playstation 3 are from the same generation of gaming. This has lead many to worry that the Wii U will quickly be surpassed by a Playstation 4 or XBox 720. According to EA's CCO, Peter Moore, this shouldn't be a problem. ...

So we all know why Nintendo decided on the name of the Wii U. The Wii sold off the shelves like hot cakes, and many people around the world know of the game changing system that Nintendo released way back in 2006. More of the Edge Interview with Katsuya Eguchi gives us even more light to the name of the Wii U, along with other interesting bits of information. There's even talk of possible new IPs for Nintendo's next big system. Oh, and you know that that little zapper attachment for the Wii U controller? Nintendo strongly believes that this set up will be a big game changer for the FPS Genre, and hey, I agree. Hell, I could even see it working for a Fallout title, (remember, Bethesda has interest in the Wii U) having the Wii U controller's screen go into v.a.t.s mode with a quick tilt or button press, and then using the zapper to point out which body parts of your target you'd like shoot into a bloody mess. Jump inside for the rest of the interview (part of it was in my last post). ...
