Four Special Zelda amiibo Coming For 30th Anniversary

Zelda amiibo

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Legend of Zelda Nintendo has announced that there are four new Zelda themed amiibo coming later this year. These new amiibo feature an 8-bit variant of the original Link sprite, similar to the 8-bit Mario amiibo that were released previously. In addition to that you can get a new Ocarina of Time version of Link or Wind Waker’s Toon Link and Zelda amiibo.

These figures will work as Link and Zelda in Super Smash Bros. And will also have special functionality in the upcoming release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo’s E3 “Press Conference” Plans Announced


The last few years Nintendo has foregone the traditional E3 press conference in favor of a more personable approach, the Nintendo Direct. In those vidoes they showed off and talked about all the games that they had coming up over the next few months to get fans excited for what was to come. This year they’ll be doing something altogether different. They will not be going back to the press conference format. They won’t be doing another hour long Direct video.

This year is all about Zelda. They’re going to be showing off the next installment of the Legend of Zelda series, which is set to release for Wii U and NX sometime in 2017. This year for their pre-conference press event, they will be doing a livestream of The Legend of Zelda. Beginning at 12:00pm EST on June 14th Treehouse Live will be streaming footage from the next game starring Link. The game will be streamed live from the show floor via Nintendo’s Youtube and Twitch channels. You can also view it here: http://e3.nintendo.com.

Otherwise we chat about the brand new Star Fox Zero which came out on Friday, Myles finally finished Twilight Princess, Nick made his Game Boy Advanced SP shiny and we talk about out favourite Kirby games.

DISCLAIMER: There is a buzzing noise for the first 5 minutes of the show. If you find it to annoying skip to about the 5 minute mark and it will have dissapeared. Apologies for this, we’re still trying to find a good solution for communicating.
