On the latest episode of Fragments of Silicon, Tantalus CEO Tom Crago stopped by for a chat. A majority of the conversation centered around The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, of which the studio was largely responsible for.

Crago went in-depth about developing Twilight Princess HD. That includes how Tantalus landed the job, Nintendo’s involvement and working with series producer Eiji Aonuma, coming up with the new Wolf Link amiibo and Cave of Shadows functionality, how long it took to come together plus the amount of people involved, and more.

Read on below for Crago’s comments about working on Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.

A big rumor surfaced this week about Nintendo potentially creating a SNES Mini for release later this year. Whether or not that actually happens remains to be seen. But with the NES Classic Edition / NES Mini being such a big hit, the possibility is certainly there.

So let’s say that Nintendo does move forward with the SNES Mini. What games would you like to be included? Titles such as Super Mario World and Zelda: A Link to the Past would probably be safe bets. Are there any far out games you’d like to see though? What would be your dream lineup? Let us know in the comments below.

Best Buy will be restocking two popular items next week. First up is the NES Classic Edition, which will be sold on Monday. Switch follows on Friday – just in time for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The restocks should be in stores at the very least, but perhaps online as well.

This might be one of your last chances to purchase your own NES Classic Edition. Nintendo is discontinuing the hardware, and final shipments are being sent out this month.

Bravely Second: End Layer is celebrating its second anniversary today. On the series’ official Japanese Twitter page, Square Enix confirms that worldwide sales have surpassed 700,000 units. Fans were also thanked for their support of the series.

Bravely Second was the second entry in the overall “Bravely” franchise. No new core games have been announced, but it almost looks like Square Enix is taking some inspiration from it with the upcoming Switch RPG Project Octopath Traveler.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s credits for beating all twelve cups are pretty similar to what was included on Wii U. However, there are some extra scenes, and some name additions – such as Tatsumi Kimishima at the end. Watch the full credits below.

There aren’t too many Switch games at the moment that use the device’s touchscreen. But with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the touchscreen functionality has been retained from the original Wii U release.

It’s nothing too crazy, but you can fully navigate Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s with a tap of the finger. You can select different modes, characters, vehicle parts, options and more. We took a brief video showing the touchscreen usage in action below.

More footage has arrived showing off TumbleSeed, which launches for Switch on May 2. View another hour of gameplay below.
