    Nintendo Announces New Zelda Games for Wii U, Finally Makes Wii U Appealing

    We've been accused of being too hard on Nintendo since the Wii U launched last year, but I think it's just a case of tough love. That's why I was so glad to see them doing something we can all get really excited about -- new Zelda games! In a Nintendo Direct video released today, Nintendo president Satoru Iawata outlined some big things coming for the Wii U like new games, software updates, and most importantly -- new Zelda!

    Nintendo Force Magazine Launching Despite Failure of Nintendo Power

    This month saw the end of Nintendo Power, a print magazine that covered the gaming company's news and goings-on since 1988. Frankly, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did, but the death of Nintendo Power isn't going to stop Lucas M. Thomas. He and his team are launching Nintendo Force Magazine in January 2013 to pick up where Nintendo Power left off, and to hopefully not end up with the same fate.

    Dad Reprograms a Zelda Game to Make “FemLink” a Female Role-Model for His Daughter

    Parents will do anything for their children. Case in point: When father/gamer Mike Hoye plays The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker with his daughter, he reads her the story. When he does, he changes all the pronouns so that Link is actually a little girl, and Zelda is her little brother. Why does he do it? In a world where most of gaming classic heroes are men trying to a damsel in distress, Mr. Hoye wants his daughter to grow up thinking that girls can be just as heroic as boys. After doing this for some time, Hoye got fed up with having to do all the work in his head, so he took the time to reprogram the game with his own gender-swapped version of the script.

    Western Meets Zelda: Fistful of Rupees Looks Awesome

    If there's something out there that could make a Western just that much better, it's obviously The Legend of Zelda. That's exactly what The Game Station thought, it seems, when they decided to make Fistful of Rupees. To be honest, we had our reservations, but after watching the video it became clear that this is precisely the kind of remix that needs to be done. Tropes from both sides have come together to provide a refreshing take on their respective genres. Plus, it stars Lisa Foiles as Zelda and apparently features lonesome ocarina solos. The three-part series debuts on August 7th. Time to start waiting impatiently!

    Someone Has Built an Exact 1:1 Reconstruction of Ocarina of Time in Minecraft

    Creating obsessively elaborate models of things is a major draw of Minecraft. With that in mind, it's not surprising that a mod group is working towards completing an entire reconstruction of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in the popular mining and crafting game. The project, aptly called Hyrulecraft, has just completed the entire above-ground portion of the game and is now open for testing. And that's only the beginning for this ambitious project.

    Time to Dust off the Wii, Here Comes Zelda

    There is really nothing to argue about here. Even if you are the most devoted of Nintendo fans, someone that purchases every major release they come out with, you have to admit that 2011 has been a rather dry spell for an already mixed history of software releases on the Nintendo Wii. The impending release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword might be hailed by some as a reason to pardon Nintendo’s lack of titles but, it doesn’t change facts.

    Chart Traces Biological Roots Of Species in the Zelda Series

    Jude Buffum, apparently a big Zelda fan, put together this chart tracing the evolutionary roots of 200 of the most prominent species in the Zelda franchise. Entitled, "Magna Arbor Vitae Deku," it not only traces each species back to the Deku tree, but also lists their corresponding binomial Latin names at the bottom. I don't know what might inspire you to make something like this, or if it could possibly serve any sort of useful purpose, but man does it ever look cool. Zelda fans are intense. Larger version after the jump.
