The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap Now Available on Wii U

The old GameBoy Advance title The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap has been re-released,  and it is now available on the Wii U’s eShop for $7.99.

The fan-favorite Zelda title’s previous Virtual Console release was through the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Program back in 2011 in conjunction with the handheld’s first major price drop. However, like all the other Ambassador Program games, it was never released to the general 3DS public via the system’s eShop, making its recent release on the Wii U somewhat puzzling.

No New Information on Kingdom Hearts III or Final Fantasy XV at E3 2014

Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III were both announced at last year’s E3, and were easily two of Square-Enix’s biggest reveals in years. Naturally, we’d expect both games to show up again this year. However, it looks like that won’t be the case. An interview with Square-Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto indicates that the company has decided that E3 isn’t the best venue to showcase new information for these titles this year.

GOG is Launching GOG.com Galaxy, a New Game Platform That is DRM-Free

GOG said they would be having big news and they were definitely right. GOG will be launching it’s own game platform that is DRM-Free. GOG is one of the most DRM-Free friendly gaming companies and is launching the platform as the first online DRM-Free game program. In the past GOG had a download manager that worked with a user’s GOG account but this platform looks to be more robust. Take a look at the trailer that GOG just published on their YouTube channel. So far all GOG has mentioned is that they will be giving more news in 2014.
