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.
Super cute Mario/Zelda stationery ⊟
Artist J.C.T. Holmes created these notecard sets featuring either Wind Waker or Peach/Rosalina themes, for $8 each (per set of 6). I love the idea of writing people letters on something that looks like it should be used to send a powerup to Mario!

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.”
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?
Nice Zelda, Yoshi bags from EU Club Nintendo ⊟
Cool little details like special zipper pulls and, uh, being a giant Yoshi Egg backpack make these new rewards on the EU Club Nintendo Stars Catalogue worth noting.
Speaking of worth, at 4000+ Stars, you’ll have to register a lot of games before you’re sporting these looks.

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.
Hyrule Warriors guide has a nice cover ⊟
Not sure if people are still doing the strategy guide thing, but if that’s your deal, you can pick up the Prima Hyrule Warriors guide with this cool wraparound cover, which is part epic battle scene, part “late-90s polyester Dragon Ball Z shirt”. In addition to gameplay strategies, the book has developer interviews and a 70-page (!) art section.
Prima’s also releasing a 288-pge guide for the new 3DS Smash Bros. game, specific to that version — preorder that here!
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.
Ganondorf’s in Hyrule Warriors ⊟
In case anyone didn’t think one of the, like, three Zelda characters I can name would be playable in Hyrule Warriors, last night’s Nintendo Direct officially revealed him. For four weeks after launch, Club Nintendo members will be able to download a costume pack for Ganondorf for free. Is one of the characters based on Tim Conway’s hilarious sports humor character Dorf? I cannot confirm this.
Costume packs for other characters, like Skyward Sword Link, will be retailer-exclusive pre-order DLC. Cool cool cool cool cool.
There are also weapons in the game that can be found later, like the Fire Rod and a dang Chain Chomp! There’s a co-op mode for two players, and an Adventure Mode that puts specific challenges on each square of a grid that looks like the Zelda NES map.
Hey, and since we all like Warriors games now, Koei Tecmo just announced Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3 for 3DS and Vita!
Ocarina of Time-inspired dress ⊟
I really love the contrast of the all-white design on this red/black gradient dress by Koala Art & Design. There are a million Ocarina of Time-based items of clothing and other fan designs out on the internet; it’s rare that one stands out like this. Oh, and it’s available as a shirt if you’re not a dress person.
Check out lots of other cool designs on Koala Art & Design, too.
Zelda: A Link Between Worlds keychains ⊟
I know you’re looking at those cute Link and Zeldas right now, but give it a second and let that Master Sword keychain sink in. And those Triforces. Man. NCSX will ship complete sets for $18.90.
