2014 can’t come soon enough
Believe it or not, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword flew onto store shelves nearly a year ago. With Wii U landing very soon, Nintendo fans have been wondering about the 2011 hit’s successor. A trusted Japanese source gives a reasonable 2014 release date for the upcoming grand adventure that will see Link enter the HD realm for the first time ever (unless we see him first in the next Super Smash Bros.).
According to the source, Zelda U will include the following:
>Biggest development team ever
>Most ambitious and innovative adventure to date
>Skyward Sword-style graphics, now in HD with much better quality
The article describes a game of epic proportions that we all hope to be true but for now, let’s leave this in the back of our minds and wait until a potential teaser trailer at E3 2013.
You’re not going to want to skip this.

Rise of the 11th
Video Product Distributors, or VPD, distributes products to different outlets, including Amazon.com. Apparently, SKUs for three separate Wii U bundles have been leaked with a singular launch date of November 11th. The three bundles are:
>WIIU SYSTEM – GM – 11/11/12 $249.99
>WIIU SYSTEM W/ – GM – 11/11/12 $299.99
>WIIU SYSTEM 349 W/ – GM – 11/11/12 $349.99
11/11 happens to be a Sunday and occurs less than two weeks before both Black Friday and the Thanksgiving holiday. If these listings hold true, a $249.99 price tag should hit the sweet spot and I’m guessing the two larger bundles could include Nintendo Land and an extra GamePad, respectively.
Official word on such matters will arrive in less than 9 days during the Wii U Preview in New York City.

You’re about to see a very familiar face in this new promotion for Bridgestone tires. Apparently, Mr. Kevin Butler has jumped ship from Sony to tout just how much fun Wii can be.
