The Legend of Zelda

It’s not all leaks coming out of the Japan Expo Twitter account today. The account also confirmed that The Legend of Zelda mastermind Eiji Aonuma will hold a “The Art of The Legend of Zelda Series” masterclass at the convention in Paris in July.

Aonuma won’t be the first big Nintendo developer to appear at Japan Expo. Last year, Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda was there to talk about Pokemon and in 2015, Shigeru Miyamoto himself also held a masterclass there.


Nintendo has been in the mobile game market for a while now and has released several games, with more on the way. According to the Wall Street Journal, one of Nintendo’s next mobile games will be one based on The Legend of Zelda. Supposedly, “people familiar with the matter” said that a Zelda mobile game would be released sometime after the Animal Crossing mobile game, which is apparently being released in the latter half of 2017, although the release timing and release order could still change. Neither Nintendo nor DeNA commented on the matter.

That’s not all, though – according to the Wall Street Journal, The Pokemon Company is planning to release a new Pokemon Trading Card Game app on mobile devices. This is peculiar since a Pokemon TCG app already exists and can be played on mobile games – Pokemon TCG Online has been around for a while and is still supported to this day.

As always, takes rumors like this with a grain of salt. While the WSJ is usually fairly reliable when it comes to their sources and a Zelda mobile game isn’t exactly a far-fetched idea, this is far from an official confirmation. Thankfully, E3 is right around the corner, so we might hear more about either of these rumored games in a couple of weeks.

Defenders of the Triforce has been running in North America since the start of the year. In Europe, it will finally debut next month.

Fans in Barcelona can partake in Defenders of the Triforce on July 2. Those in London are up next, with the event being held between July 14 and July 16. It’s also planned for Paris between July 6 and July 9. We should point out that Defenders of the Triforce is coming to Cologne as well, though no date has been set.

We’ve included Defenders of the Triforce’s promo below. You can also access the official website here.

At GDC last month, Nintendo unveiled a special 2D prototype created for Zelda: Breath of the Wild inspired by the series’ very first entry. One fan has now recreated it, allowing players to cut down trees, harvest food, shoot arrows, use physics, and more.

Breath of the NES can be found itchio here. You can also view a trailer below.

One reason why we tend to shy away from posting about fan-made games is due to Nintendo often handing out cease and desists notices. Creator Winter Drake says he’ll work on the project for as long as possible. If Nintendo gets in touch, he will “continue development with my own original characters.”


USAopoly is back with another piece of Zelda merchandise. The company is now distributing Chess: The Legend Of Zelda Collector’s Edition Board Game. It’s available through Amazon here.

This chess set comes with 32 custom pieces, in addition to a premium styled window packaging with magnetic front closure. Normally, the full package costs $74.99. Amazon currently has it for $13 off.

Below are a few photos:

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.


Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has been ongoing for several years, but the concern never really had a true CD. Fans won’t have to hold out much longer though.

In an interview with Attack of the Fanboy, show producer Jason Michael Paul confirmed that news is coming “soon.” Pre-orders will be taking place on the official website.

When official details about the CD are announced, we’ll let you know.


When The Legend of Zelda originally came out here in the west nearly 30 years ago, Nintendo accidentally included an extra “N” in one of the game’s text lines. It took some time for folks to notice, but the NES Classic Edition version of Zelda finally corrects this.

Zelda was re-released in a collection on GameCube and many times over on the Virtual Console. For the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo finally decided it was time to address it. It may not be the biggest thing out there, but it’s interesting to see the error corrected after so many years.

Best Buy is listing three new unknown amiibo on its website. Each one is simply labeled as “Nintendo – Amiibo Figure”. Details are sparse at the moment, but their listings may provide additional insight.

All of these amiibo are apparently from the Zelda line or at least related in some fashion based on what’s stated under “Compatible Game Series”. They line up well with rumors about new Zelda figures – specifically 30th anniversary Link amiibo based on Majora’s Mask, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword.

If these amiibo are already showing up on Best Buy, perhaps Nintendo will be making an announcement soon. You can check out the original listings here, here, and here.


Hyrule Historia, a lengthy book covering historical information on The Legend of Zelda, came out a few years ago. It seems that a more condensed version exists targeting younger fans. Nintendo Force spotted the book – with a new cover and all – at a kindergarten book fair.

Aside from being smaller, it’s unclear how this version of Hyrule Historia differs. It’s also unavailable online.
