PSA: Starting a new game in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will overwrite your old saves

Have you already run out of things to do in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and are thinking about starting a new game? Maybe your partner or sibling wants to start a game of their own?

Video Games Review: Hyrule Warriors Legends (3DS, 2016)

Hyrule Warriors Legends brings the brawling, button-mashing, horde-slaying action of its Wii U counter part into the realm of the handheld. It’s an impressive mixture of gameplay elements, modes and beloved characters with one glaring flaw — if you are playing it on anything other than a New 3DS console, you’re going to have a bad time.
