For over 25 years, the Zelda series has built a centuries-old legend around the mighty embodiment of the three golden goddesses’ power: the Triforce. And it has worked wonderfully well. Ocarina of Time, after so long, gave the golden triangles a back-story, and the most recent game, A Link Between Worlds, has even given it an alternate universe counterpart. But, could we have some other plot device or story line relating to the gods, without using the Triforce? It may be the backbone of the series, but could a new mechanic work well?

Zelda U Fan Made Interface Mock-up

SkyruleArcherOctober 12th, 2014 by SkyruleArcher

ZU At E3, we got a look at the next installment of the Zelda franchise, due out in 2015. We were shown a trailer where we saw Link, his horse (presumably Epona), and an enemy, but nothing else. More specifically though, we didn’t see any gameplay, or at least none from the player’s perspective. As a result, we don’t know how the interface will be set up. However, DeviantART user SoenkesAdventure made a mock-up of what the Zelda U interface might look like.

Kevin DoughtyOctober 7th, 2014 by Kevin Doughty

BayonettaWhen it was first announced that Bayonetta 2 would be a Wii U exclusive, it ruffled quite a few feathers amongst fans of the original, which had been released on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Despite the shift in consoles, the sequel is looking great. The game was released in Japan a few weeks ago, and reviews are already singing in its praise.

Gossip Stone: Do You Want a Hyrule Warriors Sequel?

Mases HagopianOctober 7th, 2014 by Mases Hagopian

The DLC will include additional characters, a new adventure mode map, and even some additional new objectives in legend mode. With that said, while the DLC will add some legs to game and keep us playing for a few months, I think for the most part we’ve all got a taste of what the game has to offer.

Back in June when I got a chance to interview Eiji Aonuma and the development team of Hyrule Warriors, I specifically asked if there were things that the development team left out of the final product due to time constraints. Yosuke Hayashi, the producer of Hyrule Warriors stated, “I don’t have any specific instances, but I’m sure that among the team members there are great ideas that we couldn’t bring to fruition.”
