It would appear as if the boxart for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes has received an update. The official Nintendo website is now featuring an updated version of the original boxart for the game that was released at E3. If you recall the original art simply featured the three Link’s posed in front of a simple gold background. The latest boxart now shows off an image that is a variation of the artwork that was released at Gamescom,…

E3 this year came with a new surprise Legend of Zelda announement: Tri Force Heroes. There have been countless online posts and debates popping up about almost every aspect of the game: gameplay, the style component, and the unique story to name a few. It seems as though Tri Force Heroes appears to be more promising than expected…

Due to the Wii U’s lackluster performance, even the most avid Nintendo fans have worried about the state of the company compared to its competition, especially after a controversial E3 showing that some people found disappointing. But many optimists have looked to 2016 with hope, anticipating the release of the new NX console, Nintendo’s plans to tap into the mobile market, and the upcoming Zelda U. As Reggie Fils-Aime said, there are going to be changes at Nintendo, and people are looking forward to what those changes might be…

GameXplain hosts Andre Segers, Josh Thomas and Derrick Bitner just released a discussion on their experience with the Tri Force Heroes demo at E3 and offered their thoughts on the gameplay, dungeons, bosses, co-op-oriented mechanics (such as shared health and the totem mechanic), and more. Unsurprisingly, they didn’t agree on all points and offered some interesting insights, arguments and rebuttals around their experiences and assessments of the game…

Hiromosa Shikata (the director of Tri Force Heroes), Katsuya Eguchi (Shikata’s boss), and Tim O’Leary (from the Nintendo Treehouse), recently played through a dungeon in Tri Force Heroes titled “The Temple.”

While these three developers did not play until the end of the level, their gameplay gave us another look into how teamwork is used within the game. After all, teamwork is what Tri Force Heroes focuses on. It’s great to see how…

Going into this particular E3, Zelda fans didn’t have much to look forward to: Zelda U had been explicitly stated to be skipping the conference, and the only other new game on the horizon appeared to be a port of Hyrule Warriors (now officially called Hyrule Warriors: Legends). Some may have been hoping that Nintendo would go back on their word and throw out some sort of teaser for Zelda U or even surprise fans with an HD or 3D remake of Twilight Princess, but Nintendo did neither of these, instead bringing in a brand new 3DS title way out of left field.

Appearing at first glance to be a simplified Four Swords with an A Link Between Worlds coat of paint, Tri Force Heroes has shown us, through our time with it at E3, the potential to bring so much more to the table, despite the fact that it is unlikely to be a full-fledged, epic Zelda adventure. 

This week on the ZI Podcast, we tackle the exciting E3 2015 expo, filled with tons of laughter, tears, anger, and confusion. Since this is a special episode, we decided to do it differently than usual and record it in two parts: One online, and the other with our team that was on the show floor the entire three days. This week’s podcast features…

As most of us already know, Hyrule Warriors is coming to the 3DS and bringing some new friends along with it. Both Tetra and the King of Hyrule will be joining the roster for Hyrule Warriors Legends, and suitably the game will include somewhat of a Wind Waker style story-arc and new stages, according to this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. Additionally, Tetra will brandish some unique weapons and both newcomers will of course have their own distinctive movesets.

As mentioned in the Nintendo Treehouse livestream of Tri Force Heroes, the inspiration behind the fashion and costume themes of the game were from the item power-ups in A Link Between Worlds. Hiromasa Shikata (director of Tri Force Heroes)…
