Zelda Dungeon featured this mod in a news post the other day, and since Oracle of Ages is one of my favourite Zelda games I thought I would post it here! This mod is a 3D recreation of Crescent Island - the island off the shore of Labrynna where Link encounters the Tokay race. I'm not sure if the mod will feature a questline or not, but it looks like it's worth checking out. Take a look by watching the video below:

A games developer named Ubiquitron is creating a first-person remake of the original Legend of Zelda for the Oculus Rift named ZeldaVR. The game is extremely similar to the 1986 classic, except that you see the world through Link's eyes in virtual reality! You can download the beta version of the game, which features the overworld with access to the first dungeon, at the project's hub page on virtualreality.io.
The full version of ZeldaVR will be free to play like the beta, and is due for release in March. In the meantime, you can check out this video demo below.

If you're a Minecraft fan like we are, here's your chance to explore a fully constructed Hyrule from Ocarina of Time created in Minecraft! You can check out the forum topic for the project here. The screenshots look pretty amazing, not just due to the incredible builds but also a custom texture pack designed specifically for the map.
At the time of writing a download for the map isn't available yet, but the author promises to release it to the public soon. Amazingly, the project was all done by one person and he even plans to build maps for The Wind Waker, Majora's Mask, and Twilight Princess. Stay tuned for updates!

Nintendo recently announced a new game for the Wii U, NES Remix 2. You'll be able to buy it from the eShop, and the game like it's predecessor, will 'remix' numerous NES titles such as Mario and Kirby by introducing new content into the classic titles. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link will also feature. We're not sure what will feature in the Zelda remix yet, except for a stage where Link must defeat a Hammer Bro in a level themed from the original Mario. The game will cost $15 and will be available for download from 25th April.

Financially speaking, Nintendo has been struggling a little lately due to poor Wii U sales, but fans and investors can at least take solace in the strong sales Nintendo's latest Zelda titles have been enjoying.
According to the company's latest financial report, The Wind Waker HD has sold over one million units, despite just under six million Wii U consoles having been sold worldwide. Future Nintendo-exclusive titles should help boost the console's sales further.
A Link Between Worlds has already sold over two million copies, making it one of the fastest selling 3DS games and already the 11th best selling 3DS game ever, at the time of writing - a great boost for Nintendo's handheld console.
Posted in Majora's Mask by Mark, on January 21, 2014
A short while after Ocarina of Time 3D was released, a number of Zelda fans harbored suspicions that Nintendo was planning to create a remake of Majora's Mask, the second 3D Zelda game released on the N64. Nintendo brought up many fan's hopes by officially expressing the possibility of such a remake, as well as releasing The Wind Waker HD, demonstrating that their Ocarina of Time remake was not a one-off.
Hiromasa Shikata, the director of A Link Between Worlds, recently let slip another hint about the possibility of a Majora's Mask remake. In a recent interview, Hiromasa was asked about the numerous references to Majora's Mask that can be found in ALBW. He responded: "[Having Majora's Mask in Link's house] was a special request from Aonuma's production team. Now why would they ask us to do that?"
Does this quote reveal anything new? Not really. Still, anyone hoping for a MM remake will take solace in the fact that there is a financial incentive for Nintendo to create it, especially given the not-so-stellar Wii U sales of late.

Old news, I know, but I haven't made a post about this topic yet! By now, most Zelda fans are probably aware that Gamespot awarded A Link Between Worlds their Game of the Year award for 2013. What surprised me about Gamespot's choice was that ALBW won despite being a handheld game, since in recent years PC and console games have completely dominated GotY awards from all the major gaming publications.
No other publications have honoured A Link Between Worlds as game of the year, but the game has gotten some other impressive awards. GameTrailers named it as the best 3DS game of 2013, despite some hefty competition from other top-notch titles such as Pokemon and Fire Emblem.

Posted in Hyrule Warriors by Mark, on December 18, 2013
Nintendo announced a new Legend of Zelda title today! The project is titled 'Hyrule Warriors', but that will not be the game's final name. The game looks quite unlike any other Zelda game we've seen before. It seems mass fighting games such as Dynasty Warriors have heavily inspired this game, as the above video shows Link battling hordes of enemies using a variety of powerful and spectacular attacks. I should note that apparently this game isn't the 'main' Wii U Zelda title, and is instead a spin-off.
Does the game look promising? It depends on what content there is in the game aside from battling, as I doubt that alone would satisfy most Zelda fans. Nonetheless Nintendo seems to have taken a bold new step with this game, which is a pleasant surprise.

Here's an interesting video from the creators of Did you know Gaming (DYKG). It examines some of the deleted content from Link's Awakening and A Link to the Past. It's always interesting to see the results of people digging through the code of a game, or researching its development history, to find unused content, scrapped ideas, and more. It's especially amazing when you discover that a game could have been very different to its final state.
Featured in this video are hidden items and enemies from A Link to the Past that are only accessible by hacking the game with a cheat device. DYKG then examines some of the development history of Link's Awakening, and discover, among other bits of interesting information, that the game could have been Nintendo's first ever multiplayer Zelda title!
