I was just as shocked reading the news as you likely are (or rather currently are) reading this headline.

With the Nintendo Direct last Thursday, Nintendo brought forth a great deal of news. Iwata announced that this year is being put forth as the “Year of Luigi,” with a series of games involving the often-overshadowed Mario brother coming to be released this year.

In a situation analogous to the paring of the Ocarina of Time remake and Skyward Sword, it would seem that this Wind Waker remake will serve as buffer between now and the distant, but impending new Zelda title for the Wii U.

Good news! All the forum content, and all your accounts for that matter, are safe and sound running on the new board software.

Yes, we’re still here! I want to apologize for our prolonged absence. All the staff have been rather busy with school work, and other such activities.
