The apparent age groups targeted by each Zelda game seems to vary quite a bit throughout the series. Some are clearly meant for older people, while others take on a much more cheery and childish tone. While the latter style appears prodominant in the series, is it about time to up the maturity level and have a game meant only for older teens and adults? Or, should things stay as they are, and continue with the “E For Everyone” maturity level? Join the discussion after the jump!
Nintendo’s latest New 3DS promotion not only stars Japanese singer and model Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, it also features a few fresh outfits for some familiar Nintendo characters including Link and Zelda; more or less inspired to match Kyary’s fashion. Rather than focusing on the core specs of the New 3DS, the advertisement carried out the idea of swapping New 3DS faceplates though an adorable endorsement. Hit the jump to see for yourself!

Ocarina of Time 2D, a 2D remake of the N64 classic, is a fan-created game that now has a playable demo on its main website. Trailers for the remake are up on YouTube, and show off some interesting things. The way that Ocarina of Time‘s gameplay is recreated is interesting, considering the game looks quite a lot like A Link to the Past, but Ocarina of Time‘s game elements still seem very responsive in it. Hit the jump to check out a bunch of videos, and watch to the end of the last video for a very interesting little hint of things to come.

Hyrule Warriors has not been out for very long, but people are already managing to unlock all of the playable characters, including those that are villains in the Zelda series, and they are apparently making for quite a good time.

Throughout the history of the Zelda, series there have been many Links. With the addition of Hyrule Warriors we are now anywhere from 11 to 14, depending on if you count Young Link (Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask) and Adult Link (Ocarina of Time) as separate Links in addition to the non-canon Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. incarnations. But with all of those heroes with all their different abilities, powers, and equipment, there must be one of them who stands head and shoulders above the others, right? Fortunately, Game Theory decided to tackle this difficult question in their latest video.

Rings make for handy magic items: they’re small, lightweight and are easy to carry in addition to your other magical gear. Finding magic rings in the Zelda games is always useful to either continue in the game, make Link tough enough to more easily survive the later dungeons or even give him a variety of bonuses. But they have only appeared in 2D games, with the last time being The Minish Cap. Perhaps it is time for them to make their return? Read more after the break!
Though it gets a lot of hate nowadays, Skyward Sword is by no means the worst that the Zelda series has to offer. Sure, the game was linear, sure, the overworld was about as interesting as your AP American Government class, and sure, the game was incredibly padded. However, there are a couple of redeeming qualities to the game. One that I find incredibly interesting is Ghirahim.
