Hey guys, big news! Every summer, over at our Twitch channel the Zelda Dungeon team gets together for their annual marathon; that’s 5 straight days of playing through every single Zelda game to raise money for charity. This year is no exception, and we’re planning a marathon that’s bigger and better than ever! And guess what, it’s just around the corner!
Hyrule Warriors has had a ton of updates in the past few days. Famitsu has revealed more updates, and the full page scans are now available, along with translations. Also, the official Japanese website has had many additions.

Those of you familiar with mods for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim might be familiar with past versions of a Zelda themed mod called Relics of Hyrule. Recently, the Relics of Hyrule mod has been updated to version 5.23, this time featuring a few masks from Majora’s Mask shown in the trailer.

Puzzles in the Legend of Zelda series have always been a significant component in its gameplay, especially in the more modern entries. In a recent interview with Nintendo’s Japanese website, Aonuma answered questions about the direction of the puzzle-solving aspects in Zelda for the Wii U. He spoke out about which types of puzzles he prefers, standard puzzles or ones that involve a “trick.”
There is a 100% chance that this week’s Famitsu has confirmed that Fi, the spirit of the Master Sword, is playable in Hyrule Warriors. While the official Twitter has been hinting at it for the last couple of days, it is now official. In addition, Famitsu has released a few other details concerning Skyward Sword representation in the game.
M. Bulteau has recently released Demo #8 for his Majora’s Mask opera. This demo in particular has Majora singing lyrics that perfectly match with its theme song as well as its fighting theme for Majora’s Incarnation.
Skull Kid makes an appearance during the video as well and is shown to be under the mask’s spell while Majora is taunting him by wishing to ‘play a game’ with him. All in all, the video itself is pretty creepy and perfectly shows how Skull Kid has unknowingly been taken over by the mask and is being coerced into doing something that he would normally wouldn’t even consider.

The character trailer for the Twilight Princess has finally been revealed! Tecmo Koei has at long last released the trailer dedicated to Midna and it doesn’t fail to impress. Has it been worth the wait?
Bertil Hörberg, an indie developer who gained significant attention as the man behind the Mega Man-inspired side-scrolling shooter Gunman Clive, has cancelled a top-down adventure game that would have borrowed heavily from Nintendo’s Zelda series. He will instead focus his attention on bringing the recently announced Gunman Clive 2 to the 3DS eShop and mobile platforms. Follow the jump for more information on the abandoned project. Read more…
The official Japanese Hyrule Warriors Twitter has teased that a new playable character will be revealed this week. It claims that the Japanese Famitsu magazine will be the place to look for the reveal and, in its wording, drops some hints as to who the character is.
Hey, everyone! The Voidcast is back, and I’ll be talking about how Zelda might or might not benefit from being set in a wild western environment. I’ll look at what ideas for this have already been presented through past games, and what could be done to further push the series towards the world of deserts, saloons and horseback battles.
Longtime members of the online Zelda fandom have likely come across the “BEN Drowned” creepypasta (essentially an internet horror story) about a haunted Majora’s Mask cartridge. Drawing inspiration from the already creepy qualities of the N64 classic, the story has long captivated Zelda fans with its disturbing imagery and themes. Not all Zelda-related creepypastas, however, can match its quality. YouTube personality Yuriofwind recently took a look at a hilariously bad Zelda creepypasta on his popular video segment, “Bull**** Creepypasta Storytime”. Hit the jump to watch the video. Read more…
Over at GameArtHQ, they have recently updated their project called Link’s Blacklist with Round 4 of their submissions. This new update consists of over 50 new artworks from 40 different artists. With this batch of fanart it now brings the total of the project’s amount to nearly 200!
For those who are unfamiliar with this project, it is an ongoing artist community project that is headed by the owner of GameArtHQ, Reinhold Hoffmann, and its goal is to showcase every enemy and boss that Link encounters throughout the Zelda series in the form of art. This project has been going on for many years now and will quite possibly continue until all artwork for all of the Link’s enemies have been made.

What was your first Zelda game? Would you say it’s your favorite out of the series? How many Zelda games have you played? Recently, an extensive survey was conducted by a curious fan of the Zelda franchise, answering these questions and so many more. In fact, there’s such a plethora of information that was gathered, it can’t possibly be confined to a single article, so I’ll be sharing data concerning my earlier inquiries. While I’m sure some results won’t be very surprising, others may shock you. I hope you like math!
