The Legend of Zelda to be released on 3DS eShop

Today, Nintendo posted on their 3DS's Facebook page about a new price-cut for the 3DS. And I noticed it without Zelda Dungeon's help. I'm so proud of myself. :D

However, the price-cut to $169.99 isn't the important part (although I'm sure many of you that couldn't afford Ocarina of Time 3D earlier are excited about that). It's what the people who already have a 3DS (like me) are going to receive. Since we're apparently their most loyal customers (I felt quite loved and finally appreciated after reading that statement), we're going to receive 20 free new games! Half of them will be released early to us, and the other half are only EXCLUSIVELY for this offer. The best part? One of them happens to be The Legend of Zelda, the very first game in the series. It's one of the ones released early, so later on, even you with the price-cut 3DS's will be able to buy it.

For current 3DS owners, all you need to do is connect to the eShop before August 11th. Later they'll give us the games somehow.

I'm excited, even though I already have The Legend of Zelda for Virtual Console on Wii (and still haven't completed it, but whatever... I'm in Ganon's Castle and I already have the Silver Arrow, so I'm pretty close...).

New Affiliate!

I need to write this post quickly. This is just a quick update. Medli's Messages (and probably The Goron Times, too) has a new affiliate! This time it's Map of the Triforce (, owned by my friend on Wizard101 Central, The Emo GameFreak. Right now he's pretty new... so go give him a comment or at least a few views, all right? ^^

...That might be the shortest thing I've ever wrote on this blog. Maybe.

Skyward Sword Story Details

The Goron Times has recently added an entry about the new plot details of Skyward Sword. You can find the post here. There's isn't anything insanely new, but there ARE a few interesting spoilers. For instance: the harp will use Wii MotionPlus to strum, and we can now assume that it will be the main instrument of the game. Also, supposedly Skyward Sword is in the final stages and due for localization now. Hopefully that means a release date is coming soon.

EDIT: Something was wrong with blogger up until now, and it wouldn't let me publish my posts, so that's why this is late. I also am now too lazy to complete the whole thing, which was also going to talk about the rest of the interview with Eiji Aonuma, where he mentions Majora's Mask 3D and even a Legend of Zelda movie. The movie part was what I was excited about. I always thought Nintendo was too afraid to ever make a Zelda movie, and that's why it hasn't been made before. Apparently, they'd LOVE to make a Zelda movie, they just don't have enough money!

About MM 3D, I doubt that will ever become real, despite how awesome that would be. I mean... I don't really think that OoT 3D's graphic style would fit the dark mood of Majora's Mask, anyway. They'd have to change it a bit to be darker for it to really work well.

You can find the interview here at Zelda Dungeon.

This is a surprise! (Comic-Con Skyward Sword Trailer)

I just checked up on everything Zelda-related yesterday, but somehow, just overnight, we've got plenty of interesting new stuff. For instance, a new Skyward Sword trailer was shown at the San Diego Comic-Con (which is really disappointing, since I had a slim chance of being able to go to that if I'd been at home and not in Canada; San Diego isn't THAT far from where I live).

Oh! Now, what's that at 1:29?

...That's right. A Goron. Luke from The Goron Times will be SO excited. All I hope is that Zoras make an appearance, too.

A lot of this trailer appears to be the same as the previous one from E3 2011. Still, there were some interesting things in there. We see Link preforming what seems like the Finishing Blow from Twilight Princess on a Skulltula/Spider thingy at 1:08. I can't recall if that had already been confirmed or not, though. And there's a little more gameplay... a better view of Skyloft...

Anyway, I'll let you enjoy that trailer on your own. I have some other news. Remember at E3 this year, when they said there would be a symphony tour for the Zelda games? Well, we now have more information on it, including a trailer.

Apparently the first concert will be in Los Angeles on October 21st. Then, afterward, they'll have a tour in 2012. I hope they come near me... I don't know if I can go to Los Angeles JUST for a Zelda concert.

I'm on vacation.

Well, duh. I told you that last post.

But I'm saying that because... I feel SOOOO bad for not updating this blog. I really, really love Medli's Messages. But... whatever.

I wonder if it's possible to get a job at Zelda Dungeon? Because that would be insanely epic. I mean... right now, they're part of an awesome Zeldathon! Nonstop Zelda games, including Four Swords and the CD-i games! ...I really can't wait to watch them play the CD-i. I hope they haven't done it yet. XD Right now they're in the middle of Wind Waker - I think I just saw them get the Power Bracelets or something.

I just noticed I also got another follower! Thanks very much to whoever is my 21st follower.

Now... let's see. There's no other major Zelda news that I can think of right now. I'm in the Spirit Temple of OoT 3D Master Quest, if anyone cares. I haven't been playing it much.

Okay! I just found out that my sister is heading over to my aunt's house. My aunt is the one who has the Wii... so I think I'm going to go with and play some Twilight Princess. Yes, I brought it with me. I brought every Zelda game I could. XD The fun thing about Twilight Princess, though, is that last year I brought it too and downloaded my file onto this one. But since it's so old... I don't have all Heart Containers! And my 3 heart file isn't there anymore! O: So it gives me something to do. Yay.

I might get back and edit this post later... I had a lot more in mind to say.

Off to Canada

Wow... the blog quieted down after that last post... O_o

Um, anyway.

Remember last year, when I was crying about how I'd have no Zelda games except PH and ST for a whole month, just because I was going on vacation? Well, that's happening again. Except this time, I'll have a LOT more than Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. I'll also have Ocarina of Time 3D, Link's Awakening DX (yes, I downloaded it!), Minish Cap, and Oracle of Ages.

In fact, you know what I just realized? With the purchase of Link's Awakening, I have every single Zelda game in existence except for Oracle of Seasons. ...Unless you count Four Swords or the CD-i games.

It's kind of sad, since I have Oracle of AGES, but not Seasons... -.-

So. Back to the vacation thing. I don't know how active I'll be - if you recall from last year, my grandparents have a computer, but it's pretty slow. Plus, my parents hate when I use the computer and play video games all throughout our vacation. I probably won't get much time on it.

Sorry about the long period of time where I didn't post, though. I really do want to do an Ocarina of Time N64 to OoT 3D comparison. I have a few differences I wanted to elaborate on. I just... haven't had the time. I might be able to do that when I get back.

Speaking of Ocarina of Time 3D, I just made the ultimate file. All Heart Containers, all Skulltulas, and the best upgrades of everything. Wow. What is it with me and DS Zelda games? I mean, I never even got over 45 Skulltulas on the original version... but with this one, I just totally pwned all sidequests...

The last thing I wanted to talk about was... fanfiction! If you recall, I posted my Medli x Link fanfiction called Duty before Love here on Medli's Messages a few weeks ago. Now it's uploaded at both on my profile, and on the Across the Fandom project. Since I feel guilty about uploading it onto my own profile, I'd prefer you read it here, at Across the Fandom... but you can also read it at my profile here. Then there's also one more I uploaded, called Shards of Time. That's here. That one will be a multi-chaptered fic.

That's it! Thanks for reading! I'll return home August 3rd. Please have a good month of July!

Why is my blog suddenly so popular?

...I'm sorry.

I haven't posted in so long (okay, just a week), but I'm starting to lose interest in this blog. Why? Because... suddenly I'm getting a TON of views, and I have no idea why! I think it's because of all that E3 information I provided. The only problem is that I stole most of that from other websites - I can take credit for discovering very little of it, and I feel bad stealing attention from the original sources. Seriously. If you type in "Skyward Sword" on Google, my blog is on the front page. Wow. Unless is has something to do with the fact that I'm logged into my own Google account...?

Whatever the case, I just don't know what to do here. I mean, the majority of posts on Medli's Messages are just for my own entertainment, and provide no kind of helpful information whatsoever. Honestly, who cares that I just got a GameBoy Advanced with the game Oracle of Ages (which is TOTALLY true... yay for me! So happy! And I can finally replay Minish Cap!)? Who cares that I keep dying the the ninth dungeon of The Legend of Zelda? Who cares that a Goron decided to join the forces of evil and kill me on Ocarina of Time 3D Master Quest? No one. You people care about Skyward Sword. How do I know that? Because that's what I care about, too.

...In that case, you can head over to Zelda Dungeon and read Skyward Sword's newly released plot details here. In the past, I would have copied and pasted everything there, but I really hate plagarism now - and that's essentially what that is.

I mean, someone already plagarized Hylians of the Future on, and I don't know what to do about it. Should I e-mail the author or just ignore it...?

Anyway... I like getting views. I like knowing that people are probably reading my stuff. But I DON'T like that it's for all the wrong reasons.

Great. I don't even know what the point of this post is. Don't worry, if there's anyone out there who is a regular reader (Luke and Lucas, I think XD) - I'll keep posting! I just don't know how often, or how meaningful any of my posts will be.

For the moment... enjoy your Sunday!
