Hyrule Warriors is to be released outside of Japan next month, and that leaves a lot of time to add new characters, either as main-game material or downloadable content. The official Japanese Twitter is now asking what characters people may want to see added.

In the E3 Trailer for Zelda Wii U the gauntlets Link wears are similar in design to the Gerudo armour worn by Ganondorf in Ocarina of Time, hinting that the Gerudo race may play a part in the upcoming title or that the game may be relatively close to Ocarina of Time in the Legend of Zelda Timeline. Ganondorf is the most recurring main villain in the console series and by far the most memorable to long time players of the series.
Do you think the Gerudo King will make an appearance as Link’s nemesis this time around? I’ll discuss after the jump. Read more…

It’s been 12 years since Toon Link made his first debut in the Legend of Zelda series. Since then, the animated rendition of Toon Link has traditionally starred in several back-to-back Zelda titles with the exceptional role as a contestant in the new and previous Smash Bros. games. Seeing as how the iconic and reoccurring cat-eyed Toon Link has made an impact on previous generations of Nintendo consoles, it can’t be helped to wonder if he will once again be the star of his own game in a 3DS or Wii U version, or if he’ll return at all.
Aside from the Wind Waker HD remake, Toon Link hasn’t made an appearance since Spirit Tracks in 2009. Has the Toon Link era come to end, or do you think Toon Link will return in a new 3DS or Wii U game? Hit the jump to hear my thoughts.

Hyrule Warriors managed to sell over 69,000 copies in its first week; however as a whole the game only sold slightly over half of its shipment. With this game being a unique hybrid of two popular series, why would the crossover not do as well?

In the newest issue of EDGE magazine, Eiji Aonuma once again tackles the idea of an open-world Legend of Zelda game. Aonuma has made a number of statements concerning open world in the past and this perhaps adds some clarity as to what to expect in the Zelda title for the Wii U.
“Since we’re talking about open worlds, let’s state upfront that we don’t plan to have an open world in the same way other companies have been doing in recent years.”

Since 2011, we’ve seen the release of Ocarina of Time 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, as well as The Wind Waker HD for the Nintendo Wii U. Both titles have been well received and it has led to numerous discussions about what will be the next Zelda remake. Given the similarities of the game engine between Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, it seemed like a no-brainer that Majora’s Mask would eventually get the 3D treatment for the Nintendo 3DS.
Would you rather see Majora’s Mask 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, or a Majora’s Mask HD remake for the Nintendo Wii U? Make the jump to hear my thoughts.

Tales of Xillia 2, a Japanese RPG that was very recently released in North America, has apparently been blessed with it’s own little Zelda reference. It is nothing huge, but it is certainly a pleasure to see a Zelda Easter egg in any new game.

Ocarina of Time is one of the greatest games Nintendo has ever made and it’s become apparent that Nintendo will do everything it can to recycle that game over and over. It released on the N64, and then re-released alongside the Master Quest on the GameCube. It was released yet again as part of the Zelda Collector’s Edition on the GameCube, and then when the Nintendo Wii launched, Ocarina of Time was one of the first games on the virtual console. Jump ahead to 2011 and Ocarina of Time was graphically upgraded for its Nintendo 3DS release.
Now that Nintendo has made the Wind Waker HD… it makes me think that it is inevitable that Nintendo will eventually make an Ocarina of Time HD as well. With Hyrule Warriors coming out this year, Zelda Wii U sometime in 2015, and of course the possibility of Majora’s Mask 3D, as well as the next new Zelda title for the 3DS, the Zelda series looks to be a bit crowded in 2014 and 2015. Ocarina of Time HD seems like such a sure-fire way for Nintendo to pull that much needed extra bit of revenue. So what do you think, will Ocarina of Time HD ever be made? Make the jump to hear my thoughts.

Our A Link to the Past Walkthrough has received another upgrade, with both the Misery Mire and Turtle Rock chapters being completely redone with all new screenshots. With this update, it leaves just Ganon’s Tower and the final battle to complete, which I will be working on over the next few days. I wanted to knock out the A Link to the Past guide before I dive deep into our Hyrule Warriors Walkthrough. As always your thoughts and criticisms are much appreciated.
