Here is an ace mod that turns your Minecraft installation into a rich Zelda themed experience! This mod introduces Zelda items, enemies, skills, and more into the game. Combat is changed dramatically thanks to a targeting system and the addition of a variety of attacks for your character, including the classic spin attack. There is also a huge number of items to craft such as tunics, weapons, shields, bombs, and all other sorts of recognizable Zelda items. New dungeon structures are also introduced to the game, from which you can get potent reagents used to craft powerful and rare items. You can even hang out with Gorons (friendly mobs) and fight enemies straight from the Zelda series (including Chus and Octorocks).
The mod is compatible with Minecraft versions 1.6.4 and 1.7.2, and requires you to have Forge in order to install. As always, you should always make a backup of your Minecraft installation before installing any mods, especially ones that can alter your world files such as this one.
Want to download this mod? Head over to the Zelda Sword Skills page on Planet Minecraft.

Nintendo has released very little information about the next Zelda title, due for release on the Wii U, other than the fact that it is apparently in development. That was enough for Walmart last month to start offering a preorder deal for a "Zelda 2" game, priced at $99 and with a release date set for December this year. But recently some news sites have started suggesting that this upcoming Zelda title will be the first Zelda game to feature DLC (downloadable content). I imagine DLC would be a great thing for Zelda - imagine downloading a new Dungeon or mini game - but there is no official word from Nintendo on these rumors, so I wouldn't hold your breath just yet.

A developer has created a browser-based remake of the original Legend of Zelda in a basic pixel format. It was created as part of a two day competition where entrants had to 'de-make' a game - that is, taking an existing game and producing a simpler version of it. Everything in the game - Link, enemies, items, etc - is represented by a single, large pixel. Use the arrow keys to move around, A for your sword, and S to use bombs. You can give the game a whirl here.

ROMHacking.net have released a hack for Link's Awakening DX, which revamps the game into a whole new quest. Dungeons have been redesigned, new puzzles have been introduced, and the game's difficulty has been increased. Here's a brief summary of the game from the project's page:
"New Awakening is a full hack of Link’s Awakening featuring broad revisions to all eight dungeons and minor textual edits, overworld edits, and sequence fixes to support a new dungeon order, as well as cosmetic edits to all dungeons and parts of the overworld. The difficulty is substantially increased, with new puzzles as well as new monster encounters, but backtracking is minimal, difficult puzzles offer subtle clues, extra resources are available where needed, and the challenges do not require perfect foresight, guesswork, perfect reflexes, repetition, or save states."
According to the author, the game's first few dungeons are fairly similar to the original game, but as you progress the dungeons get increasingly unfamiliar. Looks like a great hack - I'll certainly give it a go!

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.News Post Archive
