Gossip Stone: Could Zelda Games Use More Magic Spells?

Colonel-MajoraOctober 29th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

FireArrowG_LargeThe use of magic has been quite limited in the Zelda series, objectively speaking. Magic is often used as fuel for certain weapons, but a few games use it to power special spells, like Ocarina of Time‘s spells named after the three goddesses. The use of magic could easily change in Zelda Wii U, changing another convention of Zelda, but how might it change? What could be done to improve it? Join the discussion after clicking the jump!

First 4 Figures Announces Link on Loftwing Statue

Mases HagopianOctober 28th, 2014 by Mases Hagopian

Loftwing-StatueFirst 4 Figures today revealed the newest Legend of Zelda Statue and it comes in the form of Link on Loftwing, from Skyward Sword. This is an absolute massively sized statue with dimensions of 26″ by 22″ by 25″, making it the largest Zelda statue that First 4 Figures has created, even larger than the enormous Ganondorf Statue.

This comes at a price as the statue is slated to cost $459.99 with a limited run of 2500 statues. The statue is slated for release during Q2 2015. This appears to be the first statue in a new line of statues for Skyward Sword. I’d personally love to see a Demise statue, along with Ghirahim and Impa. Later this year, First 4 Figures is slated to released their Princess Zelda Statue. Make the jump to check out some high quality pictures of the statue.

link and midnaFor the most part Link walks the path of a loner in a vast majority of the Zelda series, and the few exceptions do little more than serve as a guide with only a few functions that actually effect gameplay such as Fi from Skyward Sword and Midna from Twilight Princess. With that in mind does Link actually need a companion, one who is more directly involved in helping Link progress through the dungeons?
