This one’s a bummer, folks. Nintendo’s official Twitter account just announced that Zelda U will not release this year after all. Instead, the game will get the Twilight Princess treatment and launch simultaneously on the Wii U and NX.

Speaking of which, the company threw another curveball and announced that the NX won’t release until March 2017. Fingers crossed, Zelda will be a launch title, yeah? Check out both tweets, as well as a sweet piece of new Zelda U artwork, after the jump.

Game of Hyrule expertly crosses Zelda with Game of Thrones

On top of looking professional — seriously, the production value is out of this world — the fan film expertly applies Game of Thrones’ sensibilities to the world of Zelda.

In keeping with the style of the show, the video contains some pretty graphic and violent images. For those who don’t mind, though, be sure to check it out aftet the jump.

A ton of new tour dates for the Symphony of the Goddesses concert were recently announced. These dates stretch across not only the rest of this year, but also into January 2017. Tickets for some of the later ones aren’t on sale yet; if one of those concerts is near you, keep tabs on the symphony’s official website.

I had a pretty fun time scrolling through the list. As someone who’s been waiting for the concert to come to Oklahoma since it began, I was thrilled to see an Oklahoma City listing pop up. Of course, it just had to be the latest one! January can’t come soon enough.
