Nintendo Direct on 11/13, Toronto/Montreal Zelda Event on 11/16

It’s The Legend of Zelda, and it’s really rad.

Nintendo of Canada has announced a one-two punch of events to look forward to this week. First up, there will be a Nintendo Direct at 8am PT on Wednesday, November 13th, 2013:


Details about this edition of Nintendo Direct are sparse, with the only hint being that they will discuss “new details and information about previously announced Nintendo 3DS software launching through early 2014.” So there may not be any big reveals of new games, but at least we should find out some cool stuff about games we’re already looking forward to.

Then, for those of you in Toronto, there will be a special preview event for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds on Saturday, November 16th, 2013 between noon and 4pm at The Great Hall (1087 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON, M6J 1H3). Fans in Montreal will have their own the following day on Sunday, November 17th, 2013 between 13:00 and 17:00 at the Square de l’église St-James, 463 Sainte-Catherine Ouest (for French, check out the event page).


This is a free event, and fans are welcome to drop by and attend in their full Zelda cosplay regalia as they try out the latest game in the series before its official release for Nintendo 3DS (and Nintendo 2DS, of course) on November 22nd. Additionally, there will be giveaways for those who attend while supplies last, plus an appearance by professional costumer/model Pikmin Link and an artist who will render Link as a wall drawing right before your eyes.
