The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

Many years have passed since the original release of The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, one of the two entries of the Zelda series to get released on Nintendo 64, but many fans of the series still consider it the best entry of the franchise. Some even consider it the best game ever released thanks to its excellent gameplay experience that stood the test of time.

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time has also been released a few years back on Nintendo 3DS, sporting enhanced graphics and a few other changes. If you’re among those who would prefer to play the original N64 release on modern hardware, you will be happy to know that The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is going to be released next week on the Wii U European eShop.

The Nintendo UK Official Twitter profile has confirmed the news a few minutes ago revealing that the classic Legend Of Zelda game will be released next Thursday in Europe. Unfortunately we have no news on a North American release at the moment but more on the matter should emerge soon.

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time has been originally released in November 1998 on Nintendo 64. The game stars the series hero Link as he travels through the land of Hyrule to stop Ganondorf, King of the Gerudo tribe, from obtaining the Triforce. Among the many remarkable features of the game are an excellent dungeon design and the unique power of the Ocarina, which can be used to play several songs that are required to progress during the game.

As already stated, The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time has also been released on Nintendo 3DS. The game’s 3DS version has been developed by Grezzo and includes a variety of new features such as the ability to quickly equip items using the touchscreen, the ability to aim precisely in first person view thanks to the console’s gyroscope, a new Boss Challenge mode and more. In addition to the original quest, the Master Quest is also included in the portable version of the game.

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time will be released on the European Wii U eShop next week. We will keep you updated on the North American release date as soon as more comes in on it so stay tuned for all the latest news.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
