When The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was first released in North America the cover art displayed a beautiful gold overlay to the design. In Europe and in Japan the cover art was more colorful, it released in both countries without the additional gold detailing. Now it would appear as if Nintendo has started releasing this more colorful design in North America as well since the packaging has now been spotted in the wild. There is no word on why we would now be starting to see the different cover art after the game has already been out for almost two years. But if this is true and for some reason you haven’t picked up The Wind Waker HD yet, you might want to get it now before the gold packaging is all gone!

Club Nintendo in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand seem to have missed the memo about its discontinuation as they are still adding some pretty amazing goodies! The Legend of Zelda inspired carrying case that was previously available through Club Nintendo is returning by popular demand but only for those members in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. Club Nintendo recently sent out an email to its members letting them know about several new additions that would be available for those territories as well as reminding them to cash in their stars before September 30, 2015. The Zelda pouch isn’t the only new addition as they are adding several other items too.

All the amiibo hunters in Europe you better get ready! Nintendo has officially announced the release dates for the upcoming wave of amiibo. For us here at Zelda Dungeon we stay true to our name, and our primary focus is on the upcoming Ganondorf amiibo! Ganondorf will launch alongside three other amiibo in Europe on June 26. Sadly for those of us in the U.S., we have to wait until September to be able to get our greedy little hands on Ganondorf!

At the end of last week we told you about Club Nintendo of Europe offering its members a The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask inspired light. The light was available for 6000 stars for all its members, and now sadly the light is no longer available. For those members that were able to place their order before the light sold out, they are starting to see them arrive at their homes. YouTube user Pug Hoof Gaming was kind enough to make an unboxing video the moment he received his light in the mail!

It has been reported at NeoGAF that Nintendo has applied to trademark the term ‘Hyrule’ in Japan, Europe, and the United States. This of course has led to some speculation as to why; or why now in particular. Hit the jump for the details.
We had already heard from different sources, including Nintendo themselves, that we were getting new color variations, a new Adventure Mode map, and one more Legend Mode stage in the newest DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors– The Master Quest DLC Pack. But, oh boy, does it go much further than that. According to the European eShop, we’re getting a lot more than we expected with this DLC pack, and you can find the details after the jump.
To help celebrate the upcoming Hyrule Warriors release the Europe Wii U eShop has updated again to include the main Zelda theme from Hyrule Warriors. Fortunately the folks at ntower were kind enough to post a video giving the rest of us a look at the updates.

The final boxart for Hyrule Warriors has been revealed, this time for Europe. There is nothing too surprising, but it is interesting to see the small differences between each version of the title block.

Nintendo recently released the popular title, A Link to the Past, for the Wii U Virtual Console in the European region, so the YouTube channel NiNTENDOMiNATi0N uploaded a video of the first 25 minutes of the game. Most of us will be familiar with A Link to the Past already, but it’s cool to see the Wii U menu for those of us who don’t have a Wii U yet. Plus the game is in German, which will certainly be different for most of us. Hit the jump to watch the video!
The Wind Waker HD has only been on the market for a few weeks now, but it has already boosted sales of Nintendo’s ailing Wii U console -in Europe at least. Wii U purchases have increased by a whooping 685 percent across the United Kingdom after the release of the enhanced GameCube remake in Europe on Oct. 4.

If you happen to be getting a the PAL version of The Wind Waker HD limited edition, you won’t just be receiving a slick Ganondorf figurine. To top off the already intriguing limited edition, for the PAL version at least, you can expect to have a reversible cover as seen on the left. Tipped by journalist NiNTENDOMiNATiON on twitter, it seems this could be exclusive to European copies. However, we have yet to hear the same for other regions.

Zelda Dungeon reported earlier that The Wind Waker HD‘s Wii U bundle and special edition would not be coming to Australia and New Zealand. Unfortunately, those countries aren’t the only ones that will miss out on a part of the game’s release. Nintendo has confirmed that the early downloadable version of the game confirmed for North America will not be available in Europe.

Turns out this morning’s Nintendo Direct was packed with more Zelda goodies than most of us expected! On top of the announcement of a Miiverse Community just for Zelda, Nintendo also announced that the European Zelda fans among us will get a special deal on one of our favorite Zelda games! Jump in for details!
Skyward Sword was released in Europe on November 18th, 2011 and all copies came with the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary CD. We were warned that this CD would only be available with first-run copies, so any fan that wanted it had to buy it right away.
Today, Nintendo revealed new boxart for the European version of Skyward Sword. It’s actually identical to the Japanese box artwork from the game. Perhaps the bigger difference is that it no longer features the blurb about including the anniversary CD. It seems Europe is moving on from their first-run sales and I expect other regions to follow soon. There is still no word on whether or not this alternative cover artwork image will make it to North America. To see a larger image of the new boxart, make the jump.
