Yesterday Famitsu magazine teased us with an upcoming interview with Eiji Aonuma and a few others where they sit down to talk about Tri Force Heroes, a brief discussion about the Zelda franchise’s 30th Anniversary, and the upcoming Zelda title for the Wii U. The moment many of us heard the news our minds started to wander about what the “brief” conversation about Zelda U would be about!

Today, we at Zelda Informer kicked off our brand new YouTube video series, ZI Reacts. These videos will most likely occur whenever a major Zelda announcement happens. For our first episode, me (Editor Darrin), Copy Editor Rian, and Editor in Chief Nate discussed two major announcements that were revealed during Nintendo’s Digital Event. We also touched on an article that IGN published, but quickly took down. It contained some interesting information about Zelda U that made some a little upset…

In a recent IGN interview, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that he was there to show off Starfox, and not Zelda U. However, he revealed that the game is still planned to release on the Wii U, as there was previous fan speculation that it may be delayed until the NX is released. He also hinted that there is some “really great” footage of Zelda U that Nintendo will be showing off in the future, but not during E3 2015…

Nintendo’s Amiibo figures became quite popular following their launch in November. They have been especially useful to Zelda players due to their compatibility with Hyrule Warriors. Now with details about the upcoming Wii U Legend of Zelda title being more freely discussed, many fans are wondering whether Amiibo will serve any function in the game. Well, wonder no longer because according to a recent interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, they will!

In a recent Q&A, Miyamoto stated that more spin-off and third party titles are coming for Wii U in 2015. He indicated that Nintendo has a new focus on offering us new spin-off titles of their series to keep giving us new software for Wii U. Mentioning that they finally completed the step on learning new development techniques, he also asserted that Nintendo will now be able release more games in short periods of time…

Miyamoto seems to have a reputation of jumping into a game’s development and completely flipping the game around. It appears that Hyrule Warriors was no different. In a recent interview with Nintendo Life, it revealed that when Hyrule Warriors was first being developed, it was originally intended to play more like a Zelda-game with Dynasty Warriors elements, as opposed to what it ended up becoming, a Dynasty Warriors game with some Zelda elements. We can thank Miyamoto for this change…

Nintendo’s 74th annual stock-holder’s meeting was held last week, and due to Iwata’s illness, Shigeru Miyamoto played a much bigger role in sharing the direction Nintendo is taking in the next year, and some of the new ideas about Nintendo franchsies, including the Legend of Zelda. After talking at length about Zelda Wii U’s “open world” concept, Miyamoto briefly discussed the future of the Zelda series on the 3DS. Hit the jump to see Miyamoto’s quote and what it could…

Minecraft has been giving fans with the patience and creativity the tools they need to pay tribute to some of their favorite movies, TV shows, and video games. Whether it’s making a 1:1 scale model of the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek, or a life size model of Hogwarts from Harry Potter, the seemingly unlimited resources and space in the game have inspired countless players to reconstruct their favorite environments from other games. Kezsonaj, a member of the Minecraft forums, has spent roughly six months recreating the world of Ocarina of Time from scratch. The time and detail put into this project is nothing short of impressive, and the map will soon become playable to anyone who wants to access it.

Despite the game’s eventual popularity and success, it is a well-known fact that The Wind Waker‘s graphics were controversial when they were first revealed. Favourable reactions were few and far in-between, and series producer Eiji Aonuma apparently even foresaw that Miyamoto would not approve of the style because of its stark deviance from the norm, keeping the graphics a secret from Miyamoto until they were ready to be shown.
