Zelda Dungeon Talks: During Development Is It Better To See Frequent, Small Updates Or Less-Frequent Large Reveals?

Hello everybody and welcome to the latest edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! We haven’t really been given much information on Zelda U, but it that a good thing or a bad thing? Working towards the release of Tri Force Heroes we got quite a bit of information on the game. The complete opposite is happening with Zelda U. Is this the path Nintendo should be taking though? If we get frequent small updates on the game then we do know quite a bit about the game by the time it’s released but how much information is necessary. Some people don’t like having anything revealed at all so when they actually play the game themselves they are in for a complete surprise. Which of these is better for you? Frequent and small, or less frequent but large?

In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks various staff members will share with us their opinion on what they believe is the best path is for reveals during the development stage and why. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. Next week’s question is  ‘What Console/Handheld Presents the Best Way to Play Zelda?’ so if you are interested in having your response featured put send an email to zeldadungeontalks@gmail.com.

Gossip Stone: Should the Japanese Tingle Games be Localized?

s_tinglesrosyrupeelandLately, I have been trying to find some good deals on the Japanese Tingle spin-offs, Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland and Color Changing Tingle’s Balloon Trip of Love. I am a collector, after all, so well-known spin-offs like these are a must in my books. The trouble is, as good as they are to have, I would have loved to be able to play them. I can’t, of course, with my North American 3DS, and that’s kind of sad, because the large amount of gameplay that I have seen, especially that of Rupeeland, looks decently fun, and I imagine that I am not the only one who would think so. Should Nintendo localize these games?
