Make your everyday life a little more legendary with a Hylian shield shoulder bag and other Nintendo nods.
Legend of Zelda
While some are excited about the prospect, others… not so much.
They’ve got high looks, high praise and now a high number of Japanese fans.
Let’s start a petition to get this made in to a feature-length film right now!
Dayside Productions is about to drop a hot new release that Zelda fans never knew they wanted.
Etsy, the online marketplace filled to the brim with unique handmade goods, can be an absolute treasure trove for people who want to stand out from the crowd with special items that can’t be found in regular stores.
Case in point: these amazing mugs from Californian seller Howard Le. From Naruto to Sailor Moon and Cowboy Bebop to The Legend of Zelda, there are dozens of Starbucks-esque mugs to choose from. And if none of them take your fancy, he’ll even custom make your order for you!
Have you ever wanted to lounge around in your own pair of Legend of Zelda pajama pants? How about snuggling up with a Mario Kart or Donkey Kong pillow? Well now thanks to Jo-Ann Fabrics, all of your Nintendo-related craft dreams can finally come true!
The U.S.-based arts and crafts retailer is now offering more yards of Nintendo-themed fabric than you can shake a Master Sword at. From Mario to Donkey Kong, Zelda to Pokémon, they have it all. Who says fully-grown adults can’t make their own homemade Pikachu PJs?
Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, which a Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess fan has proven brick by enchanting brick. His epic Lego construction that recreates Hyrule Castle was recently on display at Brickfair Virginia, one of the world’s largest Lego conventions. The massive scale and attention to detail will really grab the attention of Zelda fans and leave them begging the question, how exactly did he make the tower turret roofs?
In January, video game giant Nintendo, which usually sleeps atop a well-padded mattress stuffed with the customer goodwill it’s earned over three decades of providing quality titles, sadly announced it would be discontinuing its Club Nintendo loyalty program. With only months to go before Club Nintendo points (also called “coins” or “stars” depending on the region) become worthless, gamers have been scouring the catalog to see what prizes they want to redeem theirs for.
To help loosen their virtual purse strings, Nintendo has just announced a huge new batch of rewards, including some very stylish T-shirts and pouches based on its legendary library of games.
While the main Final Fantasy series went multi-platform with Final Fantasy XIII, most people still tend to think of Square Enix’s role playing franchise as a standard-bearer for Sony’s PlayStation consoles. Likewise, The Legend of Zelda has had the throne of fantasy-themed video games for Nintendo’s home consoles all to itself since Final Fantasy VII jumped ship for the original PlayStation back in 1997.
But just because Final Fantasy and Zelda act as figurative haymakers between Sony and Nintendo in terms of their competition for gamers’ hard-earned cash, that doesn’t mean the gamers themselves can’t enjoy both extremely polished series. One such equal-opportunity virtual adventurer is artist Shattered-Earth, whose taken the iconic logos of four Final Fantasy sequels, but recast them with the cast of The Legend of Zelda.
Cosplay: when it’s done wrong, it’s hilarious. But when it’s done right, it can be genuinely impressive. Of course, it helps to be super-cute if you want to gain attention from your cosplaying exploits, and it’s certainly paid off for RocksyChan, a Russian cosplayer who has Korean netizens drooling over her photos and scrambling to find out more about her. This, in turn, has led to net users in Japan taking an interest in the willowy beauty. Let’s take a look at some of her best work!
There are two things that I think stand out as particularly memorable from my oldest brother’s wedding ceremony. One is the stuttering mess of a toast I gave as his best man. The other is that he and his wife cut their cake with an honest to God sword, since my brother, being a member of the Marine Corps, got married in his dress uniform, complete with Mameluke saber.
It definitely made for a much more dramatic effect than slicing up dessert with some puny kitchen knife, and you might now find yourself wondering how you could incorporate a similar idea for your own wedding reception. Thankfully, you don’t even need an official work blade, just a love of iconic video games, as demonstrated by the couple in Japan that cut their cake with the The Legend of Zelda’s Master Sword.
Nintendo Japan recently announced the release of two shiny new limited colors for the 3DS LL (XL in the West) – “Orange x Black” and “Turquoise x Black“, set to hit stores in Japan on 28 November.
On top of that, a special tie-up edition with The Legend of Zelda is also in the works, to be launched on 26 December.
