There are few games where Link is forcibly transformed into an animal or creature at some point, and following this is finding a way to transform back to his original form. However, in games like Majora’s Mask and Twilight Princess, transforming into his other self is a necessity to progressing through the game. That got me thinking; would he, will he, and/or should he be able to transform again into an alternate form in future Zelda titles? I’d love to hear your opinion, so let me state mine beforehand, just past the jump!
It would appear as if the boxart for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes has received an update. The official Nintendo website is now featuring an updated version of the original boxart for the game that was released at E3. If you recall the original art simply featured the three Link’s posed in front of a simple gold background. The latest boxart now shows off an image that is a variation of the artwork that was released at Gamescom, with a few minor differences. Aside from the image being cropped which led to the elimination of a few of the enemies that had previously surrounded out three heroes, it would also appear that they have removed what had been believed to be the Sky Temple from the top left corner of the image.

Hey everyone and welcome to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! In most Zelda games starting from Ocarina of Time we see Link travelling through Hyrule accompanied by another. A special guide character that gives us hints on where to go and how to accomplish things. Fi, Midna, Navi, Tatl and Celia are all examples of these side characters. Sometimes, these characters can get really interesting and start developing and growing on us more as a character with a significant impact on the game. Fi for example was an emotionless servant for the Hero of the Godess in the beginning of Skyward Sword but as the game progressed further, Fi started becoming more and more human to the point where she no longer sounded and acted simply as a human database. The point is though, would it like there is something missing if there wasn’t a character like this constantly with our hero? Tell us in the comments below.
In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members will share with us whether or not they think guide characters are necessary and why. Read more…

Character shipping will likely always be a trend in any form of media, but Zelda, being a highly popular series with a male and female pair of protagonists, is a prime candidate for fan-created love affairs. As for Nintendo’s thoughts on this topic, the river is running rather dry, so to speak. Sure, there is a surprising number of female characters as compared to male ones, several of which have hit on our favorite green-clad manly man, but it is rather odd that for almost three decades, Nintendo has not had more than a small hint of a relationship between the hero and the princess, the ones who have always been brought together by destiny, quite literally. Why is this, and should it even ever actually happen?

In the past few days we have been sharing several different videos of new footage for the upcoming Zelda title, Tri Force Heroes. Most of the gameplay footage has centered around the newest area revealed in the game called Snowball Ravine, and now we have a video that shows off a new item from the game. IGN has uploaded a video to their You Tube channel that shows off the newest item, called the Fire Glove and takes you through many puzzle solving adventures with Red Link and his trusty Fire Glove. Could this be the same Fire Glove that the Red Link appears to be holding in some of the images, cover art and videos for the game?

The most important years of a young adults life is the teen years. Outgrowing the fantasies of childhood and accepting the true wonders of the world is an essential part of human experience. But there are those who don’t get to enjoy the transition. They are forced to focus on other, more important things. Through circumstances out of their control, they grow up too fast, and end up sacrificing their own childhoods for the sake of others. Such is the story of Sheik; born of exile, and raise in secrecy. Sheik’s mission in life was simple: to save the land she endangered. To right her wrong. Music and friends and self discovery were going to have to wait.
There are a few songs between Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask that some players don’t consider as much more than what they seem to be. The Sun’s Song is as it sounds; it changes night to day and vice versa, whereas The Song of Storms makes it rain and drains the well in Kakariko Village in order for our hero to continue on his journey to defeat Ganondorf. However, these songs and a couple others involving the spirits of the Zelda universe may have a deeper role than players have always initially thought. Make the jump to here VortexxyGaming’s theory on the true role of these otherwise seemingly meaningless Zelda tunes.
