Don’t forget to grab Four Swords from the eShop! ⊟
Today is the last time you will be able to get The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords - Anniversary Edition from the 3DS eShop in the U.S. for a long time, if not forever! And it’s free! Thanks to Karlos Tim for the photo. Apologies to Europe.
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.
3DS comic by Elizabeth Simins ⊟
Read the full comic, with more family Zelda time and lovingly rendered 3DSes and hands, at bad-at-games.
Elizabeth has relaunched her comic as a fully Patreon-funded project, “which means it only exists because a bunch of awesome people decided that it’s a project worth paying for.” I’m just going to put her Patreon link right here. In case anyone wants to click on it maybe.

"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.
The very popular 3DS Game Card Case is back in stock at Club Nintendo, and it has several new jacket designs, offering separate Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing: New Leaf cover sets! The cases hold up to 18 cartridges, and will set you back 400 Points.
Also on Club Nintendo: new downloadable game prizes! We have Game & Watch: Cement Factory (eShop), Spin Six (DSiWare), F-Zero (Wii U eShop), and 1080° Snowboarding (Wii U eShop).
Neat, this is discounted again at Amazon (Frys’ brick and mortar shops have it for $30, too — thanks, @Wario64). Other 3DS games that are $34 right now at Amazon: Pokémon X, Sonic Lost World, and Etrian Odyssey Untold.

She even drew the Thief Girl from my favorite dungeon in A Link Between Worlds! Claire makes a lot of neat GIFs on her Tumblr, many game-related, so follow her there.
There’s a lot of great Princess Hilda art out there ⊟
Here are two of my favorites, from Ann Marcellino and Shattered-Earth. This piece is also amazing. I need to return to A Link Between Worlds so I can collect the rest of the Baby Maiamais and try out the Treacherous Tower.
Custom Famicom 3DS XL ⊟
WayForward’s James Montagna put together this rad Famicom-color 3DS XL using, it looks like, a Zelda 3DS XL and a red one. It’s pictured here among his other Famicom-style handhelds and some business card cases.
Bold move, taking apart the sought-after Zelda 3DS XL!
"Not What I Expected" by Ayme ⊟
You guys have found the Sand Rod gag with the Geldmen dudes in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, right? It’s gold.
The next Zelda game: Hyrule Warriors for Wii U ⊟
Whattttt? A Zelda crossover with the Warriors franchise? Zelda Musou?! That is nuts, and completely unexpected. Under development at Tecmo Koei, the game is not considered part of the main franchise, if that’s not obvious. Hyrule Warriors (working title) is slated to release this spring in Japan, and some time in 2014 in North America.
Dress up as Ravio in Animal Crossing: New Leaf ⊟
The bunny hat makes this. Extra points if you transform your house into an item rental shop (because Zelda games work on a points system). Big ups to DustBowler49 for the QR codes and pic.
