Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Yup, you can play Link dress-up with MH4U in the West too ⊟

So we knew the Japanese version of this 3DS game featured a Nintendo collab to offer Link’s armor set and weapons in Japan, so it’s no surprise that Capcom just announced the same will be true in North America. The publisher also says it has more special equipment announcements coming soon.

Dress up as Link/maybe-not-Link ⊟

Was that Link? Zelda? Someone else? I’m still confused. Whoever that was in the new Legend of Zelda Wii U trailer, you can dress up as them in Animal Crossing: New Leaf thanks to this outfit posted by Michaela.

So maybe that wasn’t Link? ⊟
In the new Legend of Zelda trailer for next year’s Wii U game, that is. Series producer Eiji Aonuma reportedly noted that “no one explicitly said that that was Link,” according to VentureBeat. Huh.
This awesome fanart of maybe-not-Link comes from DC9spot, by the way. Her Tumblr has so much awesome art — you should definitely follow it!

Wait, some of you aren’t digging the new Zelda game’s look? ⊟

I’m surprised to see how many people are upset over Link’s feminine design or the game’s overall aesthetic. This all looks gorgeous to me! This official art is wallpaper-level, and I could stare at these GIFs (via Anthony) all afternoon.

Anyway, the Wii U game is expected to release some time next year, and is pitched as “the first truly open world in a game from the series”.

Wind Waker art from Comics vs Games 3D ⊟
Jesse Tise’s lovely illustration above will be part of Attract Mode’s Comics vs Games 3D Gallery next week, a collection of video game tributes from talented animation and comic artists — this is the first revealed piece from the gallery! In case it’s not clear, all of the artwork will be presented in 3D, and anaglyph glasses will be passed around. It would be neat if some of these pieces ended up viewable on 3DSes eventually!
Toronto’s Bento Miso will host the gallery, launching it with an opening reception on May 8th — make sure to RSVP on so you won’t miss out on the rad art, food, drinks, music, and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime tournament. If you can’t make it to the opening, you’ll be able to buy prints at Bento Miso’s amazing Bit Bazaar Spring Fair event on May 10 during the Toronto Comic Arts Festival.
Also taking place May 10 at TCAF under the Comics vs Games banner (presented by The Hand eye Society and Attract Mode): a number of inspiring talks from comic and game creators, and a showcase of experimental games created through collaborations between comic and game makers. Someone buy me a plane ticket for Toronto plz.

Was there a Zelda holiday I missed today? ⊟
Because Nintendo of America just unceremoniously dumped A Link to the Past onto the Wii U eShop ($7.99), and Four Swords Anniversary Edition onto the 3DS eShop. The latter is available to download for free until February 2.
Thanks to everyone who sent us this tip, and to Go Get Good for the GIF.

"If I Had More Courage" ⊟
If you’ve played through The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, you should absolutely check out this fan-made comic illustrated by Kitsura/紀貫, reprinted here with his permission. It’s a prequel to the events in A Link Between Worlds, and it’s beautiful, even if you can’t read the Japanese text.
And in case it’s not obvious, the comic after the break (or below, if you’re reading this on a mobile device) has spoilers about a specific character, so go and finish A Link Between Worlds first before going any further.

Make sure to visit Kitsura/紀貫’s pixiv page to see more of his work. He has asked us to emphasize that this fan-made comic is based on a fictional scenario, and that The Legend of Zelda and its characters are copyrighted to Nintendo. I originally spotted this comic on Tobias’ Tumblr.
