So nostalgia, such wow. Damn. Looks like we're all going to be playing Zelda come holiday season after all, but just not the one we originally anticipated. The mini-NES will be sold at $60, and come pre-installed with 30 classic games. 

It’ll also come ready with an HDMI cable, a power adapter, and what Nintendo's now calling an NES Classic Controller, “patterned after the iconic design of the original NES controller.” It’ll be out in stores on November 11.

video game news iwata legend of zelda tv show rumors false

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.
