In the latest issue of Famitsu magazine out this week in Japan, there was quite a bit of Zelda news. We have already shared with you the fantastic scans of Tri Force Heroes and Hyrule Warriors Legends from the magazine, along with a few bits of information. Now, we have a little more to add about some of the characters and items found in Tri Force Heroes. We already know a little bit about the story behind the game and…

In Zelda, it’s not hard to find many joyous and friendly people who would gladly help a hero in need. Sure there are a few bad eggs and monsters scattered about, but most of the series’ inhabitants are anything but grumpy. Well today we’re going to take a look at the few individuals that are grumpy, those that are filled with some degree of hate when meeting our green-clad hero. These noteworthy NPC’s aren’t villains, as they may not be malevolent, evil, or power-hungry, but they all express some degree of unjustified hatefulness and stick out in the generally welcoming Zelda world…

I believe it’s safe to say that the secondary (and probably tertiary) characters of the Legend of Zelda games contribute in part to our opinions about individual games. By that I mean characters aside from the Big 3 (Link, Zelda, and Ganon/Ganondorf) inform how we regard things like narrative interest, the “world,” and sentimental attachment to a particular game. But what of those “other” characters…

The colorful cast of faces familiar to Hyrule has grown over the years, but only a select few have been lucky enough to return for an encore after their initial appearances. Admittedly, this does well to add to the variety in our adventures that so commonly revolve around the same three Triforce representatives, but it often seems tragic to lose some our favorites just for the sake of changing things up over time. And with sequels and remakes becoming more common, perhaps this is something will soon see change.

Since the release of the first Nintendo Direct of the year, full details have been announced about the version 1.5.0 upgrade to Hyrule Warriors as well as the Majora’s Mask Pack. Hit the jump to take a look at the new content.

We are now going to have more playable characters in Hyrule Warriors‘ Master Quest DLC, but they are still only the villains that are already in the game. That being said, there are three other DLC coming later that will give us some brand new characters! What characters might you want them to be? Join the discussion after the jump!

Well we were bound to eventually reach the final Smash Bros. roster today, and now we have. Naturally this doesn’t include potential DLC – yes, there is room on the character select screen should Nintendo want to add more. Knowing this roster, I am sure we are going to several complaints, but frankly I’m rather satisfied with the over all list. What are you waiting for…

A few weeks ago, a rather convincing leak came out that purportedly was showing the entire final roster for Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS. While it had quite a few things going for it, many found ways to argue against it (e.g. general appearance, odd characters, etc.). One character in particular raised plenty of eyebrows and was heralded as a reason that this leak couldn’t possibly be true. Thanks to those currently streaming early copies of the game, however, we now know that this character is coming…

The evolution of Link’s character design is always something that is worth bringing up for discussion purpose because of the quick transition from simple to complex design in a matter of years. The largest transition that was seen was obviously the design of A Link to the Past to Ocarina of Time due to the switch from 2D to 3D visuals. Many people love the iconic design of Link from Ocarina of Time, and for good reason; his visual design is very aesthetically pleasing but shows what a hero looks like too….

We’ve had our suspicions for a while, but last night’s Hyrule Warriors Direct finally provided confirmation: we will be able to play as villains. While this is a completely new feature for The Legend of Zelda (outside of Super Smash Bros., of course), this is far from unusual for a game in the Dynasty Warriors franchise. And between the footage from the stream, the plethora of new screenshots we received today, and the official descriptions thus far, we’ve gathered quite a bit about these wanton warriors. While there’s still no character…
