Wii U Hands-On Impressions -- Battle Mii and Zelda HD

The biggest Legend of Zelda game ever developed may be in the works for the Wii U. According to WiiUDaily, who claims to have a source in Japan, Nintendo is pulling in the heavy hitters for their most ambitious Zelda project yet.

The service provides players with detailed stat tracking on every aspect of their performance, not unlike what Call of Duty Elite members receive, albeit free of charge. In addition to personal stat analysis, the WTF lets players create teams (i.e. clans), set goals, and participate in online tournaments and challenges. Did I mention it's free?

Rayman Legends Hands-On: Adorable Platforming

G4's Leah "Gave Me Awesome Headphones" Jackson is back from Germany, and she's returned with a Rayman Legends preview. Ubisoft's cartoony platformer is clearly designed to delight, but does it suceed? In a word, yes.

Here's a little bit of Leah's Rayman Legends preview.

"From what we've seen so far of Rayman Legends, the game manages to retain the charm of the series while adding in a whole new layer of gameplay with Murphy. The levels are all beautiful, the platforming constantly has us on the edge of our seat, and when both players are in sync during the music levels, the result is something truly special."

Nintendo has announced a major Wii U press event for September 13, 2012. The event will take place in New York City and be hosted by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime. In an invitation sent to news outlets, Nintendo promises we'll learn "more about how the Wii U will change the future of gaming and entertainment."

Nintendo held a similar event last year when they announced the price and release date for the 3DS. Last we heard, Nintendo was aiming to launch the Wii U in America before the Thanksgiving holiday.

At Germany's Gamescom 2012 show, we got the chance to check out Wii U game ZombiU. Don't be fooled into thinking that because it's only playable on a Nintendo console that it's a casual game. ZombiU sounds as hardcore as anything out on any console. It even features perma-death.

"We're going back to the foundation of what everyone loves about survival-horror, which means atmosphere, creepiness, fear and immersion," Gabrielle Shrager, Lead Designer at Ubisoft said, "but the most important part of the concept:  Just like in all zombie fiction, when you die, you die. You never play the same character twice."
