Release Dates for Zelda, Mario and Donkey Kong

Amidst other, more newsworthy bits of information, three release dates slipped into confirmation. A triforce of them, if you will.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker will set sails on the retail sea on October 4th. A digital version will be available for download 2 weeks earlier. The game will be released both physically and digitally for $49.99. Pre-ordering the physical version at Gamestop will get you a special edition Ganondorf figurine for an additional $5.
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World both launch physically and digitally on November 22nd. 
  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze come out of the jungle and into stores on December 6th for $49.99.
