Head past the break for the full chart. All votes were cast between August 4 and August 9.

Nintendo worked with a somewhat unexpected partner on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Rather than handling the project internally, they opted to team up with Australian developer Tantalus, who also made the Wii U versions of Mass Effects and Deux Ex: Human Revolution.

Nintendo reached out to Tantalus about the two sides potentially collaborating back in 2013. About Twilight Princess HD, CEO Tom Crago said:

“Nintendo approached us. We had worked with them before on Top Gear Rally on GBA, and had remained in close contact in the intervening period. I guess they were impressed by the work we’d done on Mass Effect 3, which was a launch title on Wii U. It’s not every day someone from Nintendo asks you if you’d be interested in making a Zelda game, so definitely it was happy moment. By that stage Tantalus had shipped around thirty games on Nintendo platforms, and so certainly it felt like a natural fit. A huge thrill, but a natural fit. We worked with Nintendo very closely. A dedicated team in Kyoto worked with us throughout the duration of the project, and senior members of our team made several trips to Japan”.

By the way, in the same interview, Crago mentioned that he’s “very excited about” the NX.

Update 3 (8/24): Zelda: Art & Artifacts is now $16 off on Amazon and $13 off on Amazon Canada.


Update 2 (8/23): Now up for pre-order on Amazon Germany.


Update: A few preview pages have come in. It’s safe to say that this is indeed the English version of Hyrule Graphics.


Original (8/22): Nintendo is teaming up with Dark Horse Books for the release of The Legend of Zelda: Art and Artifacts. It’s slated for February 21, 2017.

Based on the official description, it sounds a lot like the Hyrule Graphics book Japan is getting in about a week. It contains more than 400 pages of illustrations from the entire series, including Breath of the Wild.

According to the Amazon description:

Wild! Every masterwork is printed on high-quality paper in an oversized format so you can immerse yourself in the fine details of each piece. This book includes rare promotional pieces, game box art, instruction booklet illustrations, official character illustrations, sprite art, interviews with the artists, and much, much more! The Legend of Zelda: Art and Artifacts collects many of your favorite masterpieces from the storied franchise, as well as rare and never before seen content, presented in one handsome hardcover.

Select artwork from the entirety of the franchise!

A nostalgic look at the past!

An exciting look at the future!

Interviews with some of the artists behind The Legend of Zelda series!

You can pre-order The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts on Amazon here and Amazon Canada here.

nintendogs-cats-golden-retriever

A new wave of Nintendo Selects joined the North American lineup on Friday. Five games were added, including nintendogs + cats: Golden Retriever & New Friends. Most of these titles had their prices updated on the eShop, but there’s now a strange situation surroundings the nintendogs + cats games.

Back in 2014, all three versions of nintendogs + cats became available digitally and at just $15. Now, however, they’re gone entirely. Searching for nintendogs + cats brings up zero results. All of the Nintendo Selects had their prices updated on the eShop this past Friday and Nintendo Land even made a return, but it seems that nintendogs + cats is gone. It’s likely related to the fact that Golden Retriever & New Friends’ old price ($15) was lower than it would have been under the Nintendo Selects line ($20).

Will nintendogs + cats ever return? That’s a good question. If the different versions ever come back, they probably won’t be at $15 again.

Thanks to Jose M for the tip.
