It is with some sadness that I must begin this piece with the “closing ceremony” for our very own #ZeldaWeek. Not only was it a great way to celebrate the series’ achievement but it was also a fine way to end the month too.


We promised we would fill the site with plenty of Zelda talk and we did! Although we more than just delivered, we delivered in spades, as we covered both news, reveals and put out a bunch of features that deserved some internet time. For me personally, the week has been great, possibly the best one yet and it’s not because it was all Zelda based. Sure we covered a lot of Zelda content, but we also covered new Pokémon GO footage, new Pokémon distributions, the Squid Sister’s 2nd performance and the fact they’re getting their own amiibo. But then there was Miitomo, Super Mario Maker, details on Nintendo next mobile games (Fire Emblem & Animal Crossing), but also news on the elusive NX as well.


There was certainly plenty of things to write about and my fingers were really made to suffer, but it was all worth it, especially now as we find ourselves in May and are now just days away from the 1 year anniversary of Miketendo64, (05.05.16) which for us is a very exciting time! Still #ZeldaWeek deserves more praise than it is possible to give because without it, we may not have hit my intended goals of achieving a minimum of 100 views a day for every day we’ve been in action, but to also surpass 25.000 visitors. Sure our views may be low compared to a ton of websites out there, but the fact is we are small, we know that and don’t dispute that, but we are growing every day and just keep on getting better and #ZeldaWeek is proof of that!

However should you have happened to miss any of it, not a problem, because all content can easily be found on our site and there will also be a number of pieces listed below, along with a brief summary and you can find all that below:

DLC Refresher – Hyrule Warriors Legends:

(Feature by jhlongman)

Still left wondering just when the first lot of dlc is due out this month, we felt it was high time we rounded up all the dlc details for both Hyrule Warriors and Legends and detail as much as we know about each pack for all to enjoy. With so much to remember, it’s easy to get confused, but we hope this simplifies it all for you.


The Wind Waker Remaster that Could have Been!

(Feature by jhlongman)

With the Wind Waker HD being one of the best remasters we’ve seen so far, we consider the fact how differently the game and its success would have been, had Nintendo waited to 2014 to release the game along with amiibo


Can I call myself a true Zelda fan?:

(Feature by vic88hgn)

New feature writer Victoria Thorley has taken up the pen to ask the question all Zelda fans asks themselves at some point in their lives, just in time for #ZeldaWeek!


Zelda U & NX – Delayed Until March 2017:

(News piece by jhlongman)

With #ZeldaWeek in full swing, Wednesday brought about the tragic news that we will not be seeing Zelda U this year and that it will in fact be coming out next year, along with the release of the NX, Nintendo’s new console which Zelda U will also be releasing on.


The Legend of Zelda: A Tale of DLC and Amiibo:

(Feature by jhlongman)

Since amiibo first shipped out in 2014, these toys to life figurines have gone on to be quite the cash cow for Nintendo and as such, are starting to become involved with a lot more of Nintendo’s 1st party games, but so is dlc. With that in mind, we took to analysing their relationship with the Legend of Zelda series in general and looked into just how deep the relationship runs.


Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS) Review:

(Review by MrPanda)

Just in time for #ZeldaWeek, MrPanda was on hand to give us his review of Hyrule Warriors Legends, which is great because with his addition and the one we posted back in March there are now two reviews you can read for the same game, for you to compare against the other and see if the port is worth your time or not.

Why Hype is Ruining Zelda U:

(Feature by jhlongman)

Hype certainly is the disease that brings good games down, just look at Watchdogs and what hype did to that. In an article meant to open some eyes, we dive into the issue of why hype is causing Zelda U some serious damage, whilst also exposing some light on who is really to blame and what can be done to change it.


 Unreal Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Our Top 5 Clips):

(Feature by jhlongman)

With so many Unreal Engine 4 clips of Ocarina of Time in action, we felt it was high time we watched a bunch of them and decided which ones we love the most, still there could only be one winner, but was it your favourite? Only way to know is to watch!


Could We Be Seeing Link’s Awakening at E3?:

(Theory by jhlongman)

Lately there has been some back-chatter regarding Nintendo and another Zelda title they could be working on as of this moment, so with that, our resident Zelda theorist took to penning a piece on just what game that could be, and what device it will release on.


 Our Zelda Week YouTube Playlist:

(Feature by Mike_Scorpio)

            After having missed out on the almost all of the delights of #ZeldaWeek, founder Mike Scorpio finally managed to find the time to add his own contribution to event, a compilation  of all our Zelda content on YouTube. It’s only our ultimate playlist!


It’s certainly been a full on week, but it is a week that will leave a legacy because we also posted details regarding a new feature to implement on the site entitled Zelda You: Your Stories.  This new feature will all be about one thing, you and your experiences and stories with regards to the Legend of Zelda, a series that has been going for 30 years now. Should you wish to get involve, be sure to click here for our announcement post, which has all the details you will need to know so you can get started!


But that is all in the past now, now is the time to focus on what comes next? “What does Miketendo64 have in store for you next?” Well only Mike Scorpio has real answers to those questions, so we’ll just have to wait for him to enlighten us all, but I can assure you there will be more news, reviews and features and moving on to the subject of reviews, below you can find a list of the games we know for certainty we will be reviewing this month and who knows, some more might just sneak out of the woodwork:

Star Fox Guard (Wii U)

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse (Wii U & 3DS)

Lost Reavers (Wii U)

Mini Mario & Friends: Amiibo Challenge (Wii U & 3DS)

Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright (3DS)


So we hope you look forwards to seeing those and everything else we put out in the coming weeks, because we know we will and if you’re a Zelda fan, be sure to get those stories in! We want to hear them and share them!!!


Till next time folks. You’re never too old to get your GAME on! We hope you enjoy our little Zelda week!
