Want Midna Back Will Be At E3 2016

2006 was the first year I kept up with the pandemonium that is E3. Just off the top of my head, some of the highlights include the announcement of Halo 3 and the unveiling of the Wii. We caught our first glimpse of not only Super Mario Galaxy, but also Twilight Princess in its near-finished state.

Since then, the event has become an early Christmas for me. Some years are more momentous than others, but throughout the past ten years, it’s been a dream of mine to experience the madness firsthand.

After jumping through my fair share of hoops, I can confirm that, for the first time, Want Midna Back will be at E3. With The Legend of Zelda for Wii U being Nintendo’s sole focus at the show floor, it’s the perfect year for WMB to have a presence.

I’m incredibly excited to provide all sorts of coverage, from videos to photos to hands-on impressions. Be sure to stay tuned come June 14!

Nintendo Launches E3 2016 Press Site, Features Sheikah Symbol

Alongside the recent bombshell that Zelda U was delayed into 2017, Nintendo announced that the game will be the company’s only playable game at this year’s E3. It’s no surprise, then, that the big N’s E3 press site is solely dedicated to promoting Link’s next quest.

Although the website lays out the company’s plans for this year’s show, the real kicker is the site’s main loading screen. It features only a blue Sheikah symbol. Combined with the symbol’s presence in the recent piece of official artwork, it’s safe to say that Impa’s people will play a prevalent role during our next trip to Hyrule. Head past the jump for a better look at the press site.

Zelda Delayed to 2017, Will Release on Both Wii U and NX

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.
