Kamiko will be released in North America, Europe next week
Posted 1 week ago by Matt in News, Switch eShop | 7 Comments
Update: Bumped to the top. Kamiko will also be out in North America next week, according to Nintendo’s website. Pricing is set at $4.99.
Original: Kamiko has been out on the Japanese Switch eShop since last week, and as you might know, the game has already been fully translated into English. However, if you don’t want to go through the trouble of dealing with the Japanese eShop, you’re in luck: the game will be released on the European eShop next week, on April 27th, for €4.99. A release date on the North American eShop hasn’t been confirmed yet, though it seems likely that it’ll be released there on the same day as well.
Zelda website mentions Ganondorf’s surname as Dragmire
Posted 1 week ago by Brian in General Nintendo, News | 21 Comments
A lot is being made today over a discovery on the official Zelda website. Tucked away in the “Online Guide” are various character profiles, including one for Ganondorf. On Ganondorf’s page, the official introduction is as follows: “Once known as the King of Thieves, Ganondorf Dragmire used the power of the Triforce to become the beast, Ganon.”
This actually isn’t new. The surname Dragmire was originally included in the North American manual for Zelda: A Link to the Past, along with his alias Mandrag Ganon.
Technically the site only reconfirms what we originally knew. On the other hand, some fans are questioning whether what’s stated is even reliable given how it doesn’t come directly from the developers. Really though this is what we have to go on for Ganondorf’s full name – which was the case nearly three decades ago as well.
