Rad female Link cosplay ⊟
Even if female Link didn’t make the cut for Hyrule Warriors and only exists in the game’s art book (preorder it here), it’s great to see someone brought her to life! Youtuber Meghan Camarena cosplayed as the gender-swapped Link at PAX Prime last weekend — you can watch her videos here.
Link, Isabelle, and more coming to Mario Kart 8 ⊟
What. Not sure if this reveal was accidental, but Nintendo UK’s official site posted listings for two upcoming downloadable content packs for Mario Kart 8.
The Zelda pack, coming this November, includes:
- 3 Characters: Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Link
- 4 Vehicles (is that a Blue Falcon from F-Zero?)
- 8 Courses (including an F-Zero stage!)
The Animal Crossing pack isn’t due until May 2015:
- 3 Characters: Villager, Isabelle, Dry Bowser
- 4 Vehicles
- 8 Courses (an Animal Crossing stage, yay!)
Each pack is priced at £7.00 or the UK, or around $11.60. The listings note, “As a bonus for purchasing both packs - as a bundle or separately - you can get eight different-coloured Yoshis and eight different-coloured Shy Guys that can be used right away.”
Through the Lost Woods ⊟
This Fangamer ♥ Attract Mode piece and Legend of Zelda tribute comes from Ian Wilding — he’s got so many more awesome pieces on his Tumblr. If you’re in Seattle or will be next week, don’t forget to make time on your schedule for the August 30th Fangamer ♥ Attract Mode party.
She just beat her first Zelda ⊟
"Can I play again?" Too adorable. It looks like she played The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on her 2DS, which is a great game worth crying over. Maybe her parents will download Link’s Awakening for her next?
Ocarina of Time ruined forever ⊟
Blame the scoundrel Russmarrs2 for creating and releasing a patch that lets you play The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as Waluigi. There’s a video of it in action here, which presumably will be taken down once the UN Security Council votes to restrict all Waluigi hacks and just anything involving Waluigi in general. Credit to Dorkly for the image and link.
Zelda summer fireworks art, now with more Zelda ⊟
It’s more anime than the original, Link-only artwork Nintendo sent out yesterday, but I like this version from Rico more. Link looks like he’s having more fun in this one, now that he has some company. Also I’m surprised that someone out there doesn’t make yukatas decorated with big Tri-Forces.
Happy Summer!! from no Majora’s Mask remake ⊟
As part of a series of summer-themed wallpapers the company is putting out in Japan, Nintendo sent out desktop and smartphone backgrounds featuring Link at a Japanese fireworks festival, Majora’s Mask strapped to his head.
I doubt Nintendo is signaling a Majora’s Mask 3DS remake — masks are common at these events, so the reference is appropriate here — but don’t let that stop you from speculating! Thanks to Eddz for the high-res wallpaper.
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? ⊟
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”.
A Snake Between Worlds ⊟
Love this piece from 2 Player Productions’ Asif Siddiky, which will be displayed in anaglyphic 3D at the Comics vs Games 3D Gallery next week in Toronto — RSVP for the show’s opening reception (May 8) at Bento Miso.
