A number of games have been removed from the Wii U eShop

See to see U go

Not that long ago, Nintendo removed a bunch of DSiWare games from the DSi Shop, but we never learned why. Shortly after, most of those games returned to the service.

A few weeks later, we've found out that a number of Wii U games have been removed from the Wii U eShop. We don't know if this situation is different from the DSiWare games or not, so they may not be coming back. Here's the titles that have up and vanished without a trace.

- Super Meat Boy
- Chomp Chomp Party
- Color Symphony 2
- Dodge Club Party
- Electronic Super Joy: Groove City
- Factotum
- FreezeME
- Gaiabreaker
- Kick & Fennick
- psyscrolr

- Shadow Puppeteer
- Star Ghost

RUMOR: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD coming to Switch this year

The more Zelda the better!

Wondering if Nintendo has some more Legend of Zelda content coming to Switch to celebrate the 35th anniversary? Rumor has it two more classic titles are on the way this year.

Both Eurogamer's Tom Phillips and VGC's Andy Robinson have taken to Twitter to share some insider info on what's coming. According to them, Switch owners will be seeing both Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD on the Switch sometime this year. Again, nothing coming from official sources, but it certainly seems more than plausible.

Hopefully Nintendo comes out and confirms this news sometime after March. It's like Nintendo wants the Mario anniversary to wrap up before they start talking Zelda plans.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild speedrunner completes the game's dungeons using his feet

Get to steppin'

Nearly 4 years after The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild released, fans are still finding unique ways to enjoy the game. Some players mod the title to create all-new experiences, while others like to tackle the self-imposed challenges. Case in point, the interesting set of rules speedrunner Joedun game himself.

Instead of using his hands to play through the game, Joedun decided to attempt Breath of the Wild's dungeons using his feet. That includes the Ganon battle as well, and believe it or not, Joedun pulled it off. The fun took roughly 8 hours, and you can see the full thing from start to finish below.

Fresh trademarks for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Skyward Sword spotted

What are you up to, Nintendo?

Earlier this week, a new trademark for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass surfaced. This led fans to wondering if Nintendo is putting together some sort of Legend of Zelda 35th anniversary collection of games. Today we get even more evidence of something like that.

One trademark update for a Zelda game is one thing, but a group of Zelda games getting trademark refreshes at the same time is awfully suspicious. Aussie trademarks for Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Skyward Sword have all been tracked down as well. With four Zelda games getting trademark activity all around the same time, it sure does seem like Nintendo has something up their sleeve.

Super Mario 3D World "Switch Vs. Wii U" comparison

Paws to take a closer look

Most of the focus on Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury has been on the Bowser's Fury mode, but the video above takes a closer look at the original game. Just how much better or different is the Switch port over the Wii U original? Check out the comparison above to find see.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild speedrunner achieves a 100% completion, no-damage run

A true test of patience

Speedrunners are known for being extremely patient, as some of the tricks and tactics they use require a crazy amount of skill and pinpoint accuracy. That can be taken a step further when you throw a 100% completion qualifier onto the speedrun. Then there's the true sadists that throw in a no-damage qualifier as well. That's exactly what Joedun was going for with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and he's finally achieved his goal.

After hundreds of restarts, Joedun now holds the world record for a Zelda: Breath of the Wild 100% completion no-damage speedrun. It took him 31 hours, 58 minutes, and 9 seconds to achieve the record, and it was absolutely grueling the whole way through. Joedun had to beat the game, collect all container upgrades, finish the adventure log, find all 900 Korok seeds, obtain all the key items, beat every shrine, and fully upgrade every permanent weapon and armor. If you want to watch the madness for yourself, you can find the full run here.
