A recent Zelda: Breath of the Wild screenshot hinted at the return of Beedle. With new footage of the game appearing over the past few days, the merchant’s return is officially confirmed.

Beedle pops up very briefly in some footage posted by Polygon. You can bet that he’ll be around to sell you various items.

Famitsu’s most wanted games (1/15/17)

Posted on 2 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Wii U | 2 Comments | 0 Likes

It’s time for the latest Famitsu‘s most wanted games chart! Dragon Quest XI, Monster Hunter XX, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild round out the top ten.

Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between December 22 and December 27.

One of the more impactful moments from the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer was the brief scene showing Zelda crying. The video as a whole had a fair amount of voice acting on display.

Speaking of voice acting, each country will have dialogue spoken in its native language. That means there are versions of the trailer floating around with different voice actors.

If you’d like to listen to how Zelda’s crying compares in various countries, view the video below.

YouTube video Hypertonic shared a new video which gives us a rough idea as to how Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s loading times stack up on Wii U and Switch. See it below.

It’s not perfect science, but there’s no question that Zelda will load more quickly on Switch. Producer Eiji Aonuma has already confirmed that information.

Zelda games discounted at Best Buy

Posted on 2 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News, Wii U | 3 Comments | 0 Likes

Four Zelda games are now on sale at Best Buy. The discounts are as follows:

Zelda: Tri Force Heroes – $24.99 (was $39.99)
Hyrule Warriors Legends – $24.99 (was $39.99)
Zelda: Twilight Princess HD amiibo bundle – $49.99 (was $59.99)
Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D – $29.99 (was $39.99)

If you prefer going with Amazon, Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Hyrule Warriors Legends are price-matched at the retailer. 

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may have dual audio voices. After speaking with a French Nintendo representative, one person was told that all copies will provide the option to use Japanese voice acting instead of the game’s native language. Since this isn’t confirmed by Nintendo officially, take this news with a grain of salt for now.
