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!

Watch the above video to see footage of an actual boss fight that will feature in A Link Between Worlds! Note that if you don't want to see any of the game before playing it, you probably shouldn't watch this video.

ZeldaCraft, our Legend of Zelda Minecraft server has now been 'updated' to 1.7. The server will now accept clients running the latest version of Minecraft, 1.7.2, but none of the 1.7 features are active yet - and attempting to use any 1.7 items or functionality will not work!
We can't tell when the CraftBukkit team will produce a 1.7 release of CraftBukkit, unfortunately you will just have to be patient.

Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that the upcoming A Link Between Worlds will feature normal and hard difficulty settings. You must play through the game on normal difficulty in order to unlock hard mode, though.
One of the most regular complaints about modern Zelda games has been their relative lack of difficulty, so this feature will come as good news to many fans. Still, perhaps Nintendo could appeal to old-school Zelda fans more by allowing players to pick the hard difficulty setting without first having to complete the game. Alternatively, they could add a range of difficult settings - easy, medium, and hard - then
What can we expect from the hard difficulty setting? At the very least, you should be taking more damage, and enemies should be tougher to beat. Hopefully Nintendo will also implement puzzles and challenges that are more difficult than the ones on normal mode. Hopefully, the hard difficulty could even be like Master Quest was for Ocarina of Time!

Eiji Aonuma recently revealed the workings of the item rental system that will feature in the upcoming Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. This feature will allow players to complete at least some of the game's dungeons in any order they choose, rather than following a pre-determined pattern.
According to Aonuma, you'll be able to rent items for as long as you like, though dying will cause you to lose them, meaning a trip back to the shop. He also says that "after a while" you'll eventually be able to purchase items you previously rented, allowing you to keep them forever.
Will this new system be an improvement on the traditional Zelda formula, and make for some interesting gameplay? Or will it not even be that big of a change at all?

Today marks Nintendo's 124th birthday! The company has had a long and interesting history up to becoming one of the most successful games companies ever.
Over a century ago in 1889, Nintendo was founded as a company that produced Hanafuda cards, a type of playing card popular in Japan. The cards soon became popular, and propelled Nintendo into financial success.
In the mid-late twentieth century, Nintendo's then-president Hiroshi Yamauchi decided to expand the company's business outside the playing cards market, with a set of ambitions expansion plans that involved setting up restaurant and hotel chains, a taxi service, and even a TV network. However, these ventures failed, and Nintendo's capital plummeted.
Fortunately enough, though, Nintendo facilitated a financial recovery by producing toys and games. By the 1980s, the company had firmly established itself in the electronic video games market after finding huge success creating arcade games. It then went on to produce its successful line of home and handheld consoles!

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is now available for download in America and Japan from the Wii U's eShop. The game is selling for the standard price of $5, and like other eShop games you'll be able to play Zelda II either on your TV or on your Wii U controller's screen.
Not only is Zelda II one of the more obscure titles in the Zelda series, it is also arguably the most difficult game too. The format of the game is highly unusal for a Zelda title - it's a 2D side scroller which features numerous RPG elements such as experience points and random battles. You may think this is odd, but remember that Zelda II was only the second ever Zelda game to be released, and Nintendo had not established most of the conventions we are used to today. But if you're up for something different and challenging, perhaps you should give The Adventure of Link a try.
Posted in Wii U by Mark, on September 3, 2013
Nintendo has announced that it will lower the price of the Wii U console in America and in the United Kingdom. On September the 20th, American gamers will be able to purchase the console for $299 -$50 less than the original price - whilst the cost of a Wii U in the UK will be cut by £30.
With the Wii U not selling as much as expected, Nintendo will be hoping that the price cuts will encourage a surge in sales, though the console is still young and there are not many quality games available for it yet. The console may see a better increase in sales by the time Nintendo releases more games for it from popular Nintendo series such as Mario and Zelda, since it is those games that typically drive sales for Nintendo's hardware.
In addition to the price cuts, Nintendo has also announced that they are going to release a limited edition of the Wii U. The package will include a Wii U Deluxe console, a Zelda-themed controller, plus digital copies of The Wind Waker HD and the Hyrule Historia. It will sell for $300.
