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.
Like all good legends Data Drain resurfaces once again! This time we talk about three more Zelda games, yes those awesome CDi Zelda games (not really). I will apologize for the breathing into the mic as I was having some problems with a cough for the last couple of weeks.

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.

This week me and Nick try another method of communicating with each other as Skype continues to give us problems which means that we really struggle to hear each other and Nick has a weird buzzing…
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.

This week I’ve been playing StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void
This is a game I have completed twice already but it’s such an amazing game. It’s the last expansion to the StarCraft 2 saga made by Blizzard and it’s a Real Time Strategy game. This is a genre I’ve always enjoyed since the days of Warcraft 3 and Command and Conquer.
For those of you that have heard of StarCraft 2, this expansion is easily, for me, the best one of the series. The storyline behind it is amazing and it ties up loose ends from the days of StarCraft back in the 90’s as well as StarCraft 2 over 5 years ago and Heart of the Swarm, the second instalment to StarCraft 2.
There are lots of jaw dropping moments, the first time you see Ulnar, Zeratuls involvement, The Taldarim and all sorts. The actual gameplay is very easy to pick up also; it gives help during the first few missions and then prompts visually after that should you need it. For those who are used to RTS games it will have a familiar feel in controls. Continue reading What the NintendPals & Pals Have Been Playing – 16/04/16
