Bayonetta first graced Nintendo consoles back in 2014 when it was re-released with the launch of Bayonetta 2 on Wii U. It blew away fans and critics with it fast paced hack and slash game play and it’s don’t care attitude. Thankfully this classic has come back for another go with new features including amiibo support, tighter framerates and sharper visuals on Nintendo Switch! When Bayonetta was originally brought over to Wii U they gave it some unique content in…

First off… let me apologize to everyone. Last week, we had a second rate Guest General Manager, Gooey Fame, come in and sign a free agent to beat Mipha. Luckily for all of us though, his choice failed and you’ll never see him again! Mipha has quietly racked up 4 wins, and is close to entering the Hall of Fame, but I, Andy Spiteri, will present her with my handpicked challenger: Bryne! A Champion who looks the part, I have…

Link has always been a swordsman. Whether he’s wielding a wooden sword, a long sword, or the fabled Master Sword, our hero feels most comfortable with a blade in his hand. But as intrinsic as swordplay is to the Zelda series and its protagonist, we’re at a point in history where certain traditions can tweaked a bit. Nothing will replace the sword from Link’s repertoire; but what would happen if he was to expand his skill set with martial arts…

One of the most common criticisms I see aimed at Breath of the Wild relates to its dynamic weather system. Over the course of Link’s adventure, players will see weather conditions change in real time, as they fluidly transition from clear skies, to fog, to rain, etc. While these weather fluctuations do add an element of realism to Breath‘s world, many players found the abrupt changes between conditions to be extremely irritating, especially when the raindrops start to fall. You…

Super Mario RPG is an iconic spin-off to the Mario franchise, seamlessly blending traditional JRPG elements with the classic, undeniable charm of the Mario series to create a game that a lot of fans remember fondly. Since Super Mario RPG was such a critically acclaimed game, it’s a shame that more JRPG spin-offs of its kind haven’t been revisited by Nintendo. JRPGs still have a strong foothold and are pretty popular, and if Nintendo brought back this RPG experience with Zelda…

When I was a child, every time my family went to the grocery store I always begged my mother for quarters to buy some low quality toy from the machines up front. I remember those slappy sticky hands and the like, but I would have lost my mind if there were toys like the ones from Mases’ collection we are looking at today. These are some particularly cute little Phantom Hourglass figurines from Tomy. The complete set features five characters…

One of the best things that I can say about the items and weapons you get in the Zelda series is that they are proof of progression. Having to backtrack to an earlier part of the game with the gear you currently have equipped shows how far you’ve come in the game. That’s the kind of item ZeldaConqueror is looking at today as he gets dragged head first into the legacy of the Hookshot. ZeldaConqueror takes a retrospective look into…

Hello again everyone! Welcome back to Artists of Legend! Remember, we’re posting this series every other week know, so don’t worry, thinking you missed one last week! We do, however, have another series coming out next Thursday that I’m excited to share, so keep an eye out for that! Last Time’s Challenge Last time, because of the proximity to Valentine’s Day, we asked you to create artwork of the reunion of Anju and Kafei from Majora’s Mask. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any…

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap seems to be one of those games that hasn’t been played by quite as many people, even some long-time Zelda fans; yet almost everyone who has played it loves it. With its charming graphics, interesting mechanics, and a story unique in comparison to the rest of the franchise, it’s no wonder that this game is considered one of the best 2D Zelda games. These are the two main mechanics of the game: Link’s ability to shrink down to…

The Lost Woods are an interesting feature of the Zelda series. beginning simply as a maze designed for the player to navigate through and nothing more, over the years, the Lost Woods have evolved to have significance on the story and lore of the Zelda series. No longer just a winding labyrinth of trees, the Lost Woods have become tied to Link’s journey, often serving as the resting place of the Master Sword or serving as a trial in his…
