Last week IGN caught up with Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma to chat about Wind Waker HD. But during our interview we couldn't help but ask a few questions about their other upcoming Zelda project, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. For a game due out in two and a half months, we still know surprisingly little about it.

Here’s three things (sort of) that we learned about the upcoming Nintendo 3DS installment of Zelda.

Why Did the Art Change After E3?

The E3 art for Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (middle) was inspired by the Japanese box art for A Link to the Past (far left).

I might finally buy a 3DS. What other 3DS games are must-haves?

An IGN reader has provided the site with a bundle of Destiny art and story materials that it says were compiled by an ad agency. Destiny is the long-rumored secret project that will serve as Bungie's followup to the Halo series. The art shows an Earth in a future "littered with the ruins of man's Golden Age," according to the materials, with a huge alien ship sitting above the planet. There are also shots of various soldiers and war vehicles, along with a more final logo similar to the one we've seen before.

It took some doing on the part of some very dedicated gamers to reveal this image, the official cover to the upcoming Halo 4. But this epic, iconic shot of the Master Chief seems like it was worth the trouble.

Tag Suggestion: Cover art
I normally wouldn't make a post just for boxart, but since this box art specifically confirms the setting of Assassin's Creed 3, it seemed like a good idea...

Spoiler maybe?Collapse )

So, what do you guys think? I'm excited, but somewhat worried that it might be controversial.

Capcom released some character art of Leon and Helena this afternoon. I can't wait for this game, so anything new involving RE6 is a'ok with me.

Anagrams were once thought to possess mystical powers, the ability to divine hidden secrets. Today we understand that this is not true, except possibly in the case of videogames.

For the past few years, posters on the NeoGAF gaming message board have tried their hand at creating anagram photoshops: Manipulated images of videogame box covers with the letters shifted around into a different phrase. The box is then altered to reflect the new title: Metal Gear becomes "A Telegram"; Super Mario Galaxy becomes "Marsupial Axe Orgy."

Many of the denizens of NeoGAF have whiled away the hours working up similarly amusing, if nonsensical, photoshops. But a poster by the handle of "Jarosh" has continually set himself apart from his fellow forum-dwellers with images that use anagrams to offer commentary on the games in question. To use the example above, players irritated by the constant text-only chattering of your ever-present companion in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword might have described their experience as "Dazed! Legend of Words: Talky Shrew."

"When you find an interesting anagram, it can feel like you've discovered something that was hidden all along, something that was in a way begging to be found," said Jarosh (who prefers to go simply by his handle) in an email. "If it also happens to be a mini-review of a game, it makes you feel like an explorer who's just discovered a sunken treasure."

Below, we've presented a gallery of Jarosh's greatest anagram reviews, as well as the word wizard's top tips for teasing out the best phrases and creating a lookalike logo.

Wired, including a bunch more anagramed cover art. Totally worth a look-see.
With Twisted Metal's PlayStation 3 debut quickly approaching -- it launches on Valentine's Day, 2012 -- famed series creator David Jaffe had some interesting tidbits to reveal on the PlayStation Blog, in addition to the sweet box art, seen below.

In a video posted on the blog, David Jaffe reveals that the first run of Twisted Metal on PlayStation 3 will come with a PSN voucher for Twisted Metal Black, the PlayStation 2 classic that came out back in 2001. So gamers will get to relive the action from that title for free if they purchase Twisted Metal.

It's unclear whether this version of the game will have Trophies or if it will be a PlayStation 2 Classic-style game.


This game has been pushed back so much that it's become somewhat of a joke already. I hope that it lives up to the hype.
