Limited Run Games may be bringing something to Wii U



I mean, I don't think there's any other way to take that Tweet. I have no idea what they could be bringing to Wii U, but it's surprising nonetheless!

Nintendo Europe holding a Switch/Wii U/3DS Halloween sale on the eShop starting Oct. 24th


No word on what games will be on-sale, but it seems like it's going to be a serious opportunity, as even the Switch eShop is included!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works - cover art

Well isn't that quite the fancy cover! Yet another book I'd like to add to my coffee table collection. Let's hope a localization is announced for the Master Works in the near future.

Nintendo UK - Share your favorite #ZeldaMoments from Breath of the Wild for the chance to win some legendary prizes!

To celebrate this breath-taking year for the boundary-breaking The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild we want to see your favourite #ZeldaMoments from the game and we’re giving away lots of The Legend of Zelda goodies, including tickets to the spectacular The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert in London, and more!

Your #ZeldaMoments Contest

We want to create a video homage for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and we need your help!

Simply head to Twitter or Instagram and post a short video of yourself talking about your favourite moment from the game and include the hashtag #ZeldaMoments. We want to hear all about your epic adventures at Death Mountain, the heartfelt memories in Zora’s Domain and those unforgettable quirky moments like that time you realised apples cook themselves on the floor when in Goron City. Try not to go too far into spoiler territory, though!

Don’t want to include a video in your tweet or Instagram post? No problem, you can simply publish your favourite moment, including the hashtag, and send the short video clip to us using nintendocommunity@nintendo.co.uk alongside a link to your tweet or post with the subject line “Your #ZeldaMoments Contest”. Don’t forget, you can now use the Capture Button on Nintendo Switch to save and share video clips from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Two winning entrants will be invited to Nintendo UK, travel costs included, where we’ll film your memorable moment in person and include the footage in our future promotional materials. Not only that but you’ll win a The Legend of Zelda themed goody bag and £100 Nintendo eShop credit too! We’ll also invite some of our other favourite entrants to take part in the filming as well, travel costs included. Each of the selected additional entrants will receive a The Legend of Zelda themed goody bag too.

#ZeldaMoments Creation Contest

That’s not the only way to get involved in the celebrations though. We’re also kicking off a #ZeldaMoments Creation Contest. To get involved, you just need to create something that represents one of your favourite moments in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and publish it on Twitter or Instagram using the #ZeldaMoments hashtag. There are no limits, so you can create whatever you like, from plushies, to paintings, statues, dioramas and anything in between. If you create something physically rather than digitally we may ask you to post it to us.

Two lucky winners will receive two tickets to the incredible The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert at the Eventim Apollo, London, on November 21st, travel costs and hotel accommodation included, alongside a The Legend of Zelda themed goody bag and £100 Nintendo eShop credit. On top of that we’ll take our favourite entries and showcase them at the Eventim Apollo on the night of the concert for all to see!

Both competitions close at 23:59 on 14th November 2017. Keep an eye on the Nintendo UK Twitter account as we’ll be retweeting some of our favourite entries throughout the competition. For full details on both contests’ rules, please make sure to read the terms and conditions below.

Then you press play on the Wii U version, go online, select save file and to transfer to Switch. There will be a few more steps after that, but then you'll be good to go!

Monster Hunter Frontier Z service may be coming to an end on Wii U

While we never got to enjoy Monster Hunter Frontier Z in the states, our friends in Japan might not have much time left with the game. Capcom is currently considering putting the service to an end on Wii U, and are telling players to move saves over to the PC version. A final decision on the matter will be made in Feb. 2018.
