Nintendo’s recent Direct announced that Hyrule Warriors is coming to the Switch in spring of 2018. This will now be the third port that the game has been released on, alongside the Wii U and 3DS. The new release will be bringing the characters and maps from the other two consoles together, as well as adding in outfits for Link and Zelda from Breath of the Wild.  While I do believe that combining each game’s content and adding in a…

Hey there guys, mailbag time! This time around we’ve got Breath of the Wild on the brain still, but we’re focusing the conversation more towards how it might affect future Zelda games — what they should take away from it, how it might influence them, etc. — though we do some future-Zelda questions surrounding the Zelda mobile game as well, and even talk about Majora’s Mask 3D! We also had a special mailbag extra yesterday that you can view here….

A lot of comic books, video games, TV shows have explored the idea of evil doppelgangers, essentially asking what would happen if the hero was flat out bad to the bone. A small part of ourselves is always intrigued by these figures, the polar opposite of a goody two-shoes character. Some of us are even interested in how evil could corrupt someone like the protagonist of the Zelda series, the champion that wields the Triforce of Courage. In a recent Zelda…

Music is what makes your heart grow fonder and your ears dance; music can even take you back to the first time you played a certain Zelda game. The musical favorites of the franchise have been listed all over the internet and continue to be discussed. And the soundtrack we’re focusing on today is from the Zelda title that breathed new life into the unforgotten franchise, Ocarina of Time. A recent piano medley by YouTube’s Piano Man dives into some of the classic…

There’s no doubt in my mind that the Zelda series has birthed a whole generation of gamers. By providing us with countless adventures, the franchise has given us moments we’ll never forget and helped us to share the joy of gaming with both family and friends. And the story of series, from its inception, to its rise to power, to its sustained popularity with fans, is quite a fascinating one. The video we’re checking out today comes to us from…

The main theme from the Legend of Zelda series is one of the most iconic pieces of music in video game history. Ever since its introduction as the overworld theme from the NES Legend of Zelda, the song has been remastered, remixed, and covered again and again over the past 32 years. More recently, David Erick Ramos, a musician who has created several covers of video game songs using the ocarina, has created his own cover of the theme using nothing…

Happy Monday, everyone! How about we fire up another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? Breath of the Wild is home to a bunch of different animals, from critters that roam the fields, to creatures that swim through the ocean, to beasts that soar through the air. With so many animals to encounter, one would think that our hero Link would befriend more of them along his travels. But it seems that, beyond just killing them for food or…

I’m someone who got a late start playing The Legend of Zelda series, and many video games overall. For years, the only video games I had access to were The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario All-Stars, a few plug-and-plays, and several various titles on my DSi. Only when I was fourteen did I start diving into The Legend of Zelda and other video game franchises more than I had previously. One Zelda game that I had heard high praise for was Majora’s Mask; however, because…

Last week, Nintendo unveiled a new line of DIY construction playsets called Nintendo Labo. Choosing from a number of cardboard kits, one will be able to build his or her 3D toys, tools, and models. Nintendo Labo can also be combined with Nintendo Switch, as a player’s creations will come to life when paired with the Joy-Con and gamepad. It all sounds like a lot of fun for craft enthusiasts, but we’re still left to wonder what Nintendo Labo can…

In the latest entry in our series, Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I were tasked with talking about the villains of the Zelda series. There ended up being more than we could talk about in one video. Part one of our two part mini-series focuses on the reoccurring villains of Zelda. We mostly talk about Ganon, as he is the seminal bad boy of the franchise, but Vaati gets a mention as well. Stay-tuned for next week when we will be…
