It’s even more adorable than I expected! Releasing in Japan this August (priced at ¥3,704, or $36.47), this figure from Good Smile includes the sword, shield, heart container, several facial expressions, and more.

Thanks to Thomas P. for the tip!

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.
[[MORE]]

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.

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.

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.
