NoA PR - The Legend of Zelda Inducted Into the World Video Game Hall of Fame

REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Last year, Super Mario Bros. was part of an elite inaugural group of six games inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame in The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York. This year, recognition for Nintendo games continues, as the original The Legend of Zelda game for NES was just added to the class of 2016.

In a ceremony held at The Strong on May 5, six games were announced as this year’s honored inductees. Selected by a committee of journalists, scholars and video game industry members, inductees into the World Video Game Hall of Fame are recognized for their iconic status, longevity, geographical reach and influence.

Launching in 1986 at the start of the NES’s legendary lifespan, The Legend of Zelda broke new ground by popularizing non-linear gameplay found in many action-adventure games today. The intricately designed series has spawned numerous games in the franchise and introduced the world to classic characters like Link, Zelda and the evil Ganon. A new entry in The Legend of Zelda series is being developed for Wii U and Nintendo’s next system, code-named NX, and scheduled to launch simultaneously for both in 2017. The Wii U version of the game will also be the focus of Nintendo’s presence at the E3 video game trade show next month in Los Angeles.

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - My Parents Play: Super Meat Boy

Friday, boys and girls! The last day of the week is here and not a moment too soon. Time to knock this sucker out and get into the fun stuff! I hope you all have some fantastic plans ahead of you this weekend, even if it just means taking a nap and playing games. I say you earned it, damnit! See you in a few, short hours.

We've been writing about Super Meat Boy for sooooo many years. It's actually surreal for me to write that the game really is coming out on Wii U next week. While the title never did hit WiiWare, Team Meat kept a promise and brought the game to Nintendo fans.

Team Meat was also nice enough to give us an early look at the game on Wii U! Now I've played Super Meat Boy to completion years ago, but my parents have NO Idea what it is. I knew it would be a perfect game for them to check out, and Team Meat made that possible for us a week early. A HUGE thanks to the game for helping us out. I think it was totally worth it. I'll let the results speak for themselves!

CAUTION - FOUL LANGUAGE WARNING

Kerbal Space Program developer hit with accusations of unfair wages, crunch time

Kerbal Space Program is on its way to Wii U after already becoming a major success on PC. One would think that all is just great at Squad, the dev studio that created the game. If rumors are to be believed, that's not the case at all.

While the game is doing fantastically well and more success is on the way, it seems that multiple employees are unhappy with how the studio operates. Claims of wages amounting to $2,400 a year have come floating in. It's important to point out that the studio resides in Mexico, where minimum wage is $100 a month. That said, the studio employs numerous international devs and asks for 40 hours a week in work time.

We're also hearing that the studio is the latest in a long string of game creators that ask their employees to really hunker down on development, making for extremely long work hours and unfair amounts of time without rest.

Squad is yet to comment on this matter. If/when they do release a statement, we'll be sure to share it with you.
