Nintendo Spotting: Zelda hockey jersey

Aside from being a lifelong fan of Nintendo, I myself have an undying love for the sport of hockey. Out of sheer surprise, the two loves of my life crossed paths last night.

While in the second intermission of a Western Conference Divisional Playoff game between the Chicago Blackhawks and my hometown St. Louis Blues, I saw in the distance a man wearing a green jersey. At first glance, I figured it to be a Minnesota Wild or Dallas Stars fan looking lost in a sea of blue. Upon further inspection, I quickly noticed a Hylian shield symbol and the number 86 on both arms of the sweater. My eyes widened and went from a stern grin to a look of sheer happiness. It was a Zelda-inspired hockey jersey.

I quickly sought out the stranger, shook his hand, and asked who was on the back of the jersey. The man turned around, and no shock, it was Link stitched onto the back. For someone who I wasn’t sure what team he was rooting for that night at Scottrade Center in St. Louis, it was apparent he was ripe with Zelda passion.

After a quick Google search after the game (a triple overtime affair that night made me initially forget where the stranger had purchased the custom jersey), I found out that one site is responsible for this unique Zelda collectable.

For those interested, you can check out the above design and other gaming or film-related hockey jerseys here.

North America: get ready for the quircky Tomodachi Life on 3DS

Holly Fellmeth On Apr 10th 2014 with 0 Comments

YouTube Preview Image

Nintendo has surprised us with a Tomodachi Life Direct. Tomodachi is the Japanese word for “friend.” The game will be populated by Mii characters you import from your Mii Maker, scan through QR codes, or receive through StreetPass encounters. Imported Miis can be customized in many ways, starting with a unique voice and ending with a detailed personality. The Miis then join any others in the strange and unusual world of Tomodachi Life. “They meet up, they become friends” and they may even fall in love.

Watch the full Tomodachi Life Direct above to enjoy the shenanigans of Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata, Bill Trinen, Eiji Aonuma, and more as their Miis come together in the game to fight over girls, sing in a musical, and generally goof off. It’s only 11 minutes and is full of so much strange humor, I can’t imagine you won’t get a kick out of it. The 3DS title will arrive in North America on June 6.

10 Weird, Quirky, and/or Interesting Moments from the Super Smash Bros. Direct

Holly Fellmeth On Apr 09th 2014 with 0 Comments

Infendo Radio was begging to be recorded right after yesterday’s Super Smash Bros. Direct, so I didn’t get a chance to post all of the news that came out of the broadcast. And since, at this point, you surely know all of the main points that came out of the Direct, this post is focusing on some of the strange and unusual moments from Sakurai’s presentation. If, for some reason, you skipped out on the Direct, watch it on YouTube by clicking here.

  • Soundtrack Glee: The music at the beginning and end of the Direct sounds great. At the beginning, the theme for the most recent iterations of Smash Bros. plays, but it seems to have more energy and layers this time around. The music that plays near the end, before the Pokemon focused trailer, is a brand-new medley of themes from previous Smash Bros. games. Both sound awesome and have me really excited for the final soundtrack. Get the rest of the list after the break:
