Lets start with the best news ever!

The Legend of Zelda is coming to the 3DS!!!
Who remembers the fantastic title The Legend of Zelda – A Link to the Past? Fan’s rejoice, the 3DS is getting a direct sequel to it. The title doesn’t have a name yet, but Nintendo did show us some awesome footage of the game! The game will play in the same world as A Link to the Past with brand new dungeons, items skills and a story! I am looking extremely forward to this.

Thank you Nintendo!
