If The Legend of Zelda looked like this in the next generation, NX would fly off the shelves.

DannevoyeRomain created the world of Hyrule in Far Cry 4. In the video, we get a look at Kokiri forest, the Deku Tree, Hyrule field, the Market, and Kakariko Village.  The creator's aim was not to make an exact copy of Hyrule as it appeared in Ocarina of Time, but to update it using the tools and technical possibilities of Far Cry 4.

Remember that rumored Netflix Legend of Zelda show that Nintendo's president said was not real?  Well, the rumor is back again, this time at Amazon.  A fellow named Lulla at a website called Season Zero is claiming to have exclusive news that the Legend of Zelda show is filming a pilot for Amazon's 2016 new shows.  When asked for a source, Lulla responded with "I’m my own source. 'EXCLUSIVE' means what it means," so take this rumor with a healthy heap of salt.  I guess both Nintendo of America and Amazon are located in the same state, so, there's that?  

Season Zero says the pilot is filming this summer in New York and Savannah, GA, so if you happen to live out in Savannah, keep an eye out for Hylians; they may not just be cosplayers!

Many Nintendo fans were disappointed by the company's showing at E3 this year.  Most notably, the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for Wii U was totally absent from their digital presentation.  We heard exactly zero peeps about it.  Some worried that this meant the title was being canceled, especially since Nintendo recently announced that they're working on a new console.  Does that mean they're giving up on Zelda for the Wii U?  Not at all, says Shigeru Miyamoto: 

"We're here to talk about Star Fox but Zelda is still coming to Wii U, so don't worry about that.  My thing with E3 is that we always focus on what's coming out in the immediate future. We have some really great Zelda footage and, at some point we will be showing that off, but not today."

Miyamoto's statement may also shed a little light on why Nintendo's E3 presentation was so underwhelming: the company chose to focus on highlighting the short term.  The presentation showed us titles that are coming in the near future, rather than teasing projects that are years away.  And though it made for a lackluster performance, I can respect that.  They didn't give us any new titles to be pissed about being delayed.

In a move that should surprise no one, Nintendo has announced a delay for the new Legend of Zelda title for Wii U.  The game was originally expected to be released some time this year, but the team behind it is no longer focusing on meeting that deadline in order to have the freedom to produce a better game.  Here's hoping it's worth the wait.

In an interview with Time, Nintendo president Saruto Iwata crushed dreams and dispelled rumors that Netflix is involved with a Legend of Zelda tv show:

In early February, the Wall Street Journal reported that Netflix was developing a live-action series based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda franchise. But Mr. Iwata says those rumors are inaccurate.

“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information,” says Iwata.

The show's existence seemed questionable to begin with, but if you're desperate to keep hope alive, note that Iwata does say the rumors are "inaccurate" and not flat out false.  Maybe there is something in the works, just not with Netflix.  Or maybe Netflix is working on something for Nintendo, just not a Zelda series.  Or maybe nothing is happening at all.  There's that possibility too.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the television series is still in its early stages of development, but the show is to be a live action series in the style of "Game of Thrones for a family audience."  Before you get too excited, know this:

As it is still seeking a writer to work on the series, Netflix has a long road to travel before a “Legend of Zelda” series actually becomes a reality. It’s also possible that Netflix or Nintendo will kill the project before it gets off the ground.
