Will Nintendo Have to Abandon Brain Age and Stylus-Controlled Zelda On the 3DS?

The week after E3 is one of reflection. The 3DS hasn't left the top of most gamers' minds, and most are still incredibly amped for the new console. However, now that we've thought about it a few things have struck us as peculiar about the new handheld. First, one of the original DS's biggest game franchises was the Brain Age series. Of course, Brain Age was the brain-training game that was advertised as a way to exercise the mind by doing slightly complicated tasks for a small amount of time each day. It became a huge part of Nintendo's "Touch Generation" series, which was aimed at older gamers. But will it translate to the 3DS? Read More

Iwata: DS Needs A "Killer App"

It's almost kind of funny looking back at the life of the Nintendo DS. They console many thought would be the last gasp from a dying company has done nothing short of revolutionize the gaming industry, and has become the biggest-selling portable system ever released. However, Nintendo's president, Satoru Iwata, recognizes that the console still hasn't met expectations, and that Nintendo's declining hardware sales need bigger software in order to be turned around. Thus, a "big hit" title, Iwata says, is necessary to reinvigorate sales. Fortunately, Nintendo has such a title on the way, but it's one that has mainly appealed to one segment of the market. Perhaps it's time for Nintendo to focus on more of the hardcore fans with a title desired by gamers for a very long time. Of course, it could even be something that isn't a game at all. More after the break. Read More

Miyamoto Thinks Games Need to be More Fun

Video games didn't sell quite as well in 2009. As it turns out they aren't as recession proof as the industry once thought. Rather than attributing this to a lack of spending cash on the part of consumers, Shigeru Miyamoto, the man behind Mario, Zelda and just about every other major franchise at Nintendo thinks that the problem is fun. "The fact that in 2009 we were not able to sell more than we did in 2008 was simply that in comparison, we were not able to produce fun-enough products." Said Miyamoto in an interview with the Economist. Hit the break to read more. Read More

Iwata Asks: The History of Handheld The Legend of Zelda Games

Gather 'round, kids: it's time for a new edition of Iwata Asks! Surprisingly, Nintendo Co. Ltd. President Satoru Iwata has elected to talk once more about The Legend of Zelda. Last time, he spoke specifically about the series' latest installment, Spirit Tracks for the Nintendo DS, but this time, he is out to learn more about the legacy of The Legend of Zelda in handheld form.

Nintendo Once Again Skirts the Issue of a Playable Princess in Zelda: Spirit Tracks

It seems that Nintendo may have created a real problem for itself back in the 80s, when it put its two leading princesses in skirts. We've heard Miyamoto joke about not including Princess Peach as a playable character in New Super Mario Bros. Wii due to the difficulty of animating her skirt (among other more practical reasons, such as the expectation she would float). Now, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed to Famitsu that when it came to getting the titular princess involved, they found it was easier to kill her than to animate her skirt.

Amazon.com PS3 Gold Box and Deals for Xbox 360, DS

Amazon has whipped up another video game-themed Gold Box today, with the item of the day being Assassin's Creed II for $39.78, 34 percent off the regular price of $59.99. So far, all deals on Grand Theft Auto IV and inFamous have been claimed, but there are still several more hints which have yet to be revealed for the rest of the day. 11am PST's hint says "Get ready to rumble in this wrestling blockbuster," leading me to believe it would be WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2010. 1pm PST says "Fight as you favorite Jedi or clone troopers," which obviously narrows it down.

Majora's Mask Brought About a "Turning Point" in Nintendo, Served as Inspiration for S

Love it or hate it, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask was definitely a drastic departure from the traditional Zelda formula found in the game's beloved predecessor, Ocarina of Time. Though, what most don't know is how much of an impact this outside-the-box approach had on not only the future of the franchise, but also the overall perspective of Nintendo. In the latest entry of Nintendo's "Iwata Asks" column, Eiji Aonuma, the man behind much of the Zelda franchise, explains how the concept for Majora's Mask was born. The revolutionary idea of setting up a repeating three-day structure within the game came as a challenge from Miyamoto after Aonuma expressed his reluctance in working on a "flip-side" version of Ocarina of Time. Hit the cut to see how it all began. Read More

Week-Ending Game Endings - 12.04.09 - The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Well, since The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks comes out this Sunday night/Monday morning (at Nintendo World, anyway), I thought a good Week-Ending Game Ending would be to have Phantom Hourglass lead into the new title. But, despite all the piracy, hacks, emulators, ROMs, and whatever else, it seems that there is absolutely no good video (that I can find) of the end of the game. So instead, we'll dial it back a little further and check out its prequel, Wind Waker, instead: More after the cut. Read More

Media: The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - Snow Temple Gameplay Reveals a Familiar Face

Among other new videos on GameTrailers for The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks comes one featuring gameplay from the Snow Temple. But what has people talking is the part at the end, where a face familiar to Zelda fans appears. Who is it? We would not be so inconsiderate as to spoil it here, so you will just have to watch (or wait and play) for yourself to find out who it is. Or, you know, look and ask around. I'm sure someone's running their mouth about it without consideration.

Media: The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks - UK Commercials x3

Just one week left until The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is released to the masses! Well, in North America, at any rate; Europe has to wait four more days. Thankfully, they have three new commercials to help guide them along. That's like one commercial for every 32 hours! Okay, so maybe that does little to ease the pain. Just be glad you're not in Japan, where they have to wait until the day before Christmas Eve to get their hands on it. When did they start getting everything so late, anyway? More after the cut.

Aonuma Has Much to Say About Zelda

It seems now as though a day does not go by that the overseer of The Legend of Zelda series, Eiji Aonuma, does not give an interview. Once Spirit Tracks is out, however, I'm sure we will hear little more than a few peeps from him before E3. But for now, here is his video interview with IGN: More The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Info Some notes, for those unable to view it, await after the cut. Read More
