Hyrule Warriors Legends – Character Trailer

Check out an amazing gameplay trailer of all the characters in Hyrule Warriors Legends for the new Nintendo 3DS or new Nintendo 3DS XL system. This character trailer pretty darn sweet if you ask us and it’s awesome that this franchise is headed to Nintendo’s handheld. From what I am hearing though, you may want to have the New 3DS for the best experience possible so be warned!

Enjoy the new Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer everyone.

Here are the boxarts for the Puzzles and Dragon’s X games that are headed to the 3DS. I love me some good box art as my background is in illustration and I have to say that these covers catch my fancy. Although there is a very small difference between the two, I am more drawn to the one up top (the red one).

Which one do you like bette?

Nintendo has announced that the well received Fire Emblem Fates was the best-ever launch for the series. With more than 300,000 units sold between all versions of the Fire Emblem Fates game during its launch weekend, the Nintendo 3DS strategy RPG has earned a place in the record books as the fastest-selling game in the history for the franchise. To put this in perspective, the game sold more than five times as many units as 2013’s Fire Emblem Awakening.
