An image posted to Reddit a few days ago shows an excerpt of an interview in Game Informer with Hiromasa Shikata, the Director of A Link Between Worlds.

The image shows the text of a question that asks if there any Majora’s Mask references in A Link Between Worlds that we may have missed. The answer given is,

[Having Majora’s Mask in Link’s house] was a special request from Aonuma’s production team. Now why would they ask us to do that? – Hiromasa Shikata

Is Aonuma planning on doing more in the world of Termina? We can’t be certain, but it looks like the signs might be pointing that way. Read after the jump for more!

It took quite a while, but Nintendo has finally entered the world of online gaming. But even though it has been over a year since the Wii U made its entrance, Nintendo still is just taking first steps into the wonderful world of internet-based hardware. And, as we all know, they can be a bit unconventional when it comes to just about everything. Naturally, the company took an odd approach to online gaming.

Wind Waker HD’s “Tingle Bottles.” Taking a tip from the online mechanics from Dark Souls, Tingle Bottles allow you to enclose a message or drawing along with a picture and send it off for fellow adventurers to discover.

It is also, in my opinion, the best thing since Kirby Air Ride and a sign that the future of online gaming for Nintendo could potentially be a great one. Click the jump to see my personal experiences with the mechanic.

For those of us who are old enough to know what VHS tapes are, they were once the main medium used for watching movies and for recording videos on camcorders and VCR players. Their reign came to an end once DVDs took over and now the only way to obtain VHS tapes is through the internet or at garage and yard sales as well as flea markets. A website called Backloggery recently created some ‘How-to’ videos which detail ways of…

The Zelda fanbase is constantly talking about it; the creation of a movie or series based on our favorite franchise is a hotly debated topic. Over twenty-five years of popularity, and the closest thing we’ve had was an infamously terrible cartoon (although this isn’t everyone’s opinion). Recently, game director Eiji Aonuma made a statement saying that a Zelda movie would require a 3DS to view, if one were ever made, and it seems we’re getting pretty close. Nintendo announced today…

USgamer recently had an interview with Eiji Aonuma, one of the major people involved with the Zelda series, and talked about the upcoming The Wind Waker HD. One of the things in particular that they talked about was the fact that some of the changes that they made for the remake was due to Aonuma remembering certain parts of the game differently than how it actually is in the game. One small example that Aonuma gave would be when Link…
