Hello again! We’re back again, and the holidays are coming up soon, so be prepared for some Zelda-themed holiday challenges starting soon! But for now, things are sticking to the norm, so let’s get to it! Last Week’s Challenge Last week,  we asked you to create art of Link being trained by the Hero’s Shade from Twilight Princess. There’s only one piece of art this week, which isn’t a submission, but it’s still some terrific work! By Radiant on DeviantArt I’m…

Chemistry is a un-quantifiable thing when it comes to romance. You can’t really describe what it is, or point out any concrete signs of it – it’s just one of those things that you either know is there or isn’t. While The Legend of Zelda series would never be described as a romantically inclined series, most games at least offer Link one or more female characters in the game for him to interact with. Unfortunately, Twilight Princess offers up easily…

We are back with another campaign in Zelda Warfare! This time around, Mases and I are racing through the Lost Woods as we try to open the entrance to Dodongo’s Cavern. We battle a Wolfos with only a Deku Stick, traverse the Sacred Forest Meadow without using our shield, and jam out with some Skull Kids. The Goron vase also proves to be a deadly foe. If you enjoyed this campaign, you can join us over on our Youtube channel for…

Much ado has been made in the Zelda community regarding the new Master Cycle Zero in The Champions’ Ballad. Link’s new motorcycle definitely made an impression when it was first unveiled, and a handful of fans have so far shared about how fun it is to ride the thing around. But as the latest DLC pack adds a vehicle so similar to something we’d see in modern society, some fans have begun to question whether or not the Zelda series…

The theme of Gerudo Valley from Ocarina of Time has seen its fair share of reinterpretations. Over the years, the theme has been performed in metal, jazz, and dance styles, just to name a few. But in a recent cover by musician Ace Waters, Gerudo Valley experienced a new layer of musical intricacy, as rock guitar, brass instruments, synthesizers, and more converge to create a bold reimagining of the classic tune. This Gerudo Valley cover acts as the final entry…

A Link Between Worlds is the sequel to a Link to the Past and was released over twenty years after the original game came out. Despite the considerable time gap between release dates, A Link Between Worlds was met with positive reviews, carving its own path as a unique installment with new, fun gameplay features while having elements of its classic predecessor, and I enjoyed the game immensely as a result. The Wall Merging mechanic is really fun and easily…

Technology and magic are often two ways to explain phenomena in fantasy worlds, and the Zelda franchise is no exception. Many unexplained mysteries abound, and perhaps one of the more interesting is the origins of the Sheikah technology found throughout Breath of the Wild. The YouTube channel Chamber of Sages sheds some light on this cryptic topic in their latest video. Their theory posits that the Goddess Flames, specifically Nayru’s, may be the power source. Both are represented as a blue gout of flame, and…

Certainly no Zelda game is ever a walk in the park for Link. Every Legend of Zelda game features the hero saving the world from impending destruction. Sometimes though, along the way, the challenges he must go up against can seem more difficult than others both physically and mentally. This has lead to many discussions over which Link really had it the worst. We tried to get to the bottom of it in the newest episode of the Zelda Challenge. Kevin and I both tried…

Happy Monday, everyone! A lot has happened between last week’s Caption Contest and now. Zelda Informer and Zelda Dungeon merged together, The Champions’ Ballad was finally released, and… a gosh-dang motorcycle was added to Breath of the Wild! The Master Cycle Zero was the center of attention last week, as Link can finally boulder across the countryside in his very own chopper. How could we not caption that thing?! Last Week’s Contest: Link joined the Fraternity of Shirtless Lizard Men…

In an interview with IGN, Breath of the Wild Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi explained the programming difficulties associated with letting Link pet the many pups of Hyrule. He explained that Link can only perform a limited number of actions, but they’re versatile so his abilities seem endless. In order for Link to pet dogs, however, an entirely new action (that wouldn’t have been functional elsewhere) would have been necessary. For this practical reason, Link wasn’t given the ability to pet dogs. Fujibayashi said,…
