In Kotaku’s recent interview with Tri Force Heroesdeveloper and A Link Between Worlds director Hiromasa Shikata, fans officially got an answer to a question that most have already figured out: Where was Tri Force Heroes’ initial concept derived from? Ever since day one, Zelda fans have had no problem connecting Four Swords with this brand new title. What they might not have thought of, however, is the fact that inspiration was also taken from another Zelda game…

Last month, Eiji Aonuma announced a Majora’s Mask-themed Art Academy contest on Miiverse. Now, four weeks later, the talented winners of the contest are being featured on Nintendo Japan’s website.

I’m so glad Nintendo chooses to interact with their fans and give them a chance to be featured on their website…

When I think about 

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, one of the first things that comes to my mind is the three-day cycle. One of the things that the Zelda series has always lacked is a sense of urgency. The threat of a great evil almost seems to idly stand by on their plans for domination so you have time to stop by and catch the Hylian Loach.

With any re-release there is always hype for what new mechanics might be added to our favorite classics.

Today Eiji Aonuma takes to the Swamp Fishing Pond and attempts to make a big catch. Hit the jump to find out how well he did.

The excitement surrounding Majora’s Mask 3D has inspired countless Majora themed works of art, but for those artists who still haven’t expressed their love for Majora’s Mask, this is the perfect opportunity to do so; Eiji Aonuma has announced a drawing contest in the Miiverse community to celebrate the The Symphony of the Goddesses, Master Quest’s February 7th performance in Tokyo and the launch of the Japanese Legend of Zelda twitter account.

With the Twilight Princess Pack due out this month, Aonuma has posted a miiverse announcement in the Zelda Developers’ Room community giving a sneak peek and specifying release date to be November 27th.

As it turns out, however, the truth behind this remake is far more exciting than what we had imagined it to be.  In a post earlier today on Miiverse, Eiji Aonuma, producer of the Zelda series, took time to tell fans a little more about the upcoming game, revealing that it has been in development since…
