Nintendo kicks off 2016 with new Zelda release and new 3DS

Twilight Princess HD, Hyrule Warriors: Legends, and a new 3DS XL set for release in March.

Fans of the highly celebrated Legend of Zelda games will be excited to learn that a remake of one of the series’ favourite titles is set to release in Australia and New Zealand on 5 March.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U will be followed by the release of a new 3DS XL Hyrule Edition system and Hyrule Warriors: Legends for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on March 24.


The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is an HD remake of one of the most critically-acclaimed entries in the series, first released on Nintendo GameCube and Wii in 2006.

Nintendo said the new Wolf Link amiibo feature allows players to open the exclusive Cave of Shadows bonus challenge, a new area where skilled players can use the powers of Wolf Link and Midna to take on increasingly tougher enemies on each floor.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will be available at launch on March 5 on the Nintendo eShop for $AU79.95 or $NZ99.95. The game will also be available in a special edition bundle at retail that includes the Wolf Link amiibo and an audio CD with a selection of the game’s official soundtrack for $AU99.95.


Shortly after on 24 March, Nintendo will release its 3DS XL Hyrule Edition, a gold-coloured console featuring Hylian Crest design on the front for a recommended retail price of AU$249.95.


On the same day the company will launch Hyrule Warriors: Legends for Nintendo 3DS. The company said it offers players the chance to experience the action-packed Hyrule Warriors game, originally released on Wii U, but with additional new maps and characters from The Legend of Zelda series.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
