REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 1, 2017 – With Black Friday quickly approaching, Nintendo is offering a variety of products to make holiday shopping a little bit easier and a lot more fun for everyone.

    Nintendo has 3 releases of Zelda in 3DS, but two are remakes, only one native of the system.
    Its time to close with a golden key.
    Its time for New The legeng of Zelda entry native for new 3DS! And i dont care if this will be Breath of the Wild like…

    • Tlink7

      Please no, I don’t want to go back to 3DS graphics xD

      • Sinara Centeno

        Think about it, they could release on Switch after, with more grafics, if that was the problem. An “HD remaster”. Works fine in Monster Hunter, more or less…

        • Tlink7

          We’ll find out soon enough what more is on the way for the 3DS 😀

        • Gestrid

          True. Kingdom Hearts has done the HD remaster thing about 3-5 times now, I believe.

    • Roto Prime

      Could you imagine THAT?! Would be so legendary, always wanted a 3D zelda game on Nintendo 3DS in 3D!!

    • I don’t see it happening but it would be nice!

    • MajoraKlens

      There’s 4 Zelda games on the Nintendo 3DS, Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora’s Mask 3D, A Link Between Worlds, and don’t forget Triforce Heroes 😉

      • Señor Cardgage

        And don’t forget Zelda 1 & 2, ALTTP and Minish Cap (if you’re an ambassador). Lots of Zelda to be played on there!

        • Rusty Venture

          Links Awakening, Oracle of seasons, and ages.

  • Roto Prime

    Man, wish this had all the DLC, would have been a day one!! 2DS looks good <3

    • Would have been perfect for people transitioning to the Switch for Christmas who own the game on Wii U but it would negate the reason to buy DLC and Ninty rarely do complete editions with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe being one of the few.

      Still alright but not great.

      • Roto Prime

        True, true!!

  • Tlink7

    That’s a sweet bundle, but the 2DS’ colours are… not my thing 😀

  • Ser2k2

    Nice Zelda’s Bundles.

  • Probably to clear out 2DS stock and those colours are nice but this should’ve/could’ve been a New 2DS instead.

    And ALBW is a better Zelda on the 3DS Imo.

    • it’s a true fact that link between worlds is the best 3ds game

  • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior


  • Jack Whitening

    Why won’t you just let me play oot on my switch Nintendo. Let’s move past the ds.

  • Gestrid

    So… What’s in the explorer’s guide thing?

  • Kyle K. Moore

    Nintendo’s really trying to sweep the whole holiday season out here lol, every age group can get something

  • TruExtent

    I think that pricing on the Xenoblade Pro Controller is wrong. Everywhere I look it’s $74.99, not $99.99.

  • Cesar Miyamoto

    does the 2DS has a Zelda triforce logo or something else apart from the green color?

    And the explorer guide is soft cover ?

  • sremick

    I already have the game. I just want the book and the map.

  • Addy

    Did not expect the explorer’s pack to be the same price as the stand-alone. But, it does not have the DLC, so not buying it.

  • Jesiah Grant

    The artwork on the explorers guide is new, I dig it. What’s supposed to be inside the book?

  • hi v3.0

    Ugh I want that guide and map why it didn’t came with game when I got it Nintendo -_-

  • JasonBall

    Wow, that’s the third new art that’s come out recently. First ganon, then kass now that epic battle on the explorers guide.

  • a MAP? this is blasphemy

  • Supporter

    As someone who has been on and off about Breath of the Wild (I don’t have time for most open-world games as evident from my time playing The Witcher III), this Explorer’s Edition might push me to get the game.

    With a guide book, hopefully I’ll be able to play more efficiently and not take forever to beat the game. Of course, I still need to get a Switch someday, but I would be more interested in picking it up.
