From a recent interview with Gamespot we learned that the development team of Tri Force Heroes wanted to focus on a more lighthearted and fun game, which so far they feel has been the theme for the games released on the 3DS. They felt that creating a game that was to0 focused on an intense story or hugely dramatic plot might have deterred from the fun of the game. Shikata said, “we wanted it to be easy for anyone to…

Yesterday, Gamespot posted their interview with Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime, talking about upcoming games spoken of during the Digital Event, and asking about his thoughts on the overall conference. Early in this interview, Gamespot asked about Zelda Wii U, and why it was not shown at the conference. Hit the jump for the full video, and to hear Reggie’s responses about Zelda.

This September, we will finally be seeing the release of the final Zelda character Amiibo from Super Smash Bros.: Ganondorf. While the pretty little figures are great fun to collect, it is nice to have some actual use for them, especially beyond just Smash. Gamespot has detailed the games Ganondorf, and all other Amiibos in fact, work with, and what they do in those games. Check out what Ganondorf’s figure can do after the jump!

For those of you who do not know, the Nintendo 64 version of Majora’s Mask contains a supposed easter egg referencing Star Fox. Masks resembling a fox, a bird, a rabbit, a frog, and a pig are all set in a row on Majora’s Mask‘s mask collection screen.

A recent GameSpot interview with Eiji Aonuma, the director and producer of many Zelda games, explained that this reference was actually not intended by him. However, he goes on to explain that an employee could have orchestrated this easter egg without telling Aonuma . . .

In an interview with GameSpot, longtime Zelda producer and director Eiji Aonuma was asked which Zelda title a newcomer to the series should start with. Aonuma considers Ocarina of Time the best to start with, as it was the first game he had worked on in the Zelda series. He then explains that the player should continue on to Majora’s Mask afterwards.

Playing Majora’s Mask first could be quite confusing for a first-timer to the Zelda franchise, because he or she wouldn’t know the backstory behind it. This is why Ocarina of Time should be played first. Ocarina of Time is also a good introduction to the Zelda series because it is easily available on the 3DS. Physical copies may be hard to find, but it can always be downloaded via the Nintendo eShop . . .

Information is just jam-packed in the latest GameSpot interview with Zelda series boss Eiji Aonuma. We have learned that he is considering a replacement for himself, and that the next remake will be decided by the fans. Now we have learned Aonuma would like to use amiibo in a future title, possibly a Zelda one.

Aonuma reveals that amiibo were almost going to be compatible with Majora’s Mask 3D, but the idea was eventually scrapped due to the type of gameplay that Majora’s Mask contains. He even said that a Skull Kid amiibo was considered, much like the Special Edition statue. . .
