Hyrule_Warriors_Link_DL_ClothesIn theory I am not a huge fan of DLC, I mean, there is a certain cynical ‘it’s all about the money’ argument to be made against it. But in practice the idea of getting new content is pretty exciting. Right now there are four Hyrule Warriors DLC packs in the works – The Master Quest Pack available right now, a Twilight Princess Pack, a Majora’s Mask Pack, and a Boss pack. The last two at least are pretty light on details about what they contain. What do you want them to have in terms of characters, costumes, and maps? Hit the jump for the discussion.

Colonel-MajoraOctober 17th, 2014 by Colonel-Majora

Recently, Skyward Sword gave us some of the most praised AND most hated bosses in the series, and A Link Between Worlds brought us both new bosses, and classic ones with an added twist, but what next? What styles and gameplay should the new upcoming Zelda bosses use? Join the discussion below! Read more…


Link and Majora's MaskMany videogames borrow from world mythology for their settings, enemies, items and so on. The Legend of Zelda is no stranger to this.

Gaijin Goombah takes a look at this in three parts, starting with the bosses. Watch the video after the break!

I have discussed it while playing, looked through the timeline for clues, and thought about it in bed. I’m pretty sure some of you have thought about it too. It is an interesting thought experiment, if nothing else: a game, if you will. Hit the jump to play along.
