Could We See a Release Date for Zelda Wii U Soon?

the-legend-of-zelda-wii-uAccording to some speculation from the folks over on Master Herald we might be getting the release date to Zelda Wii U very soon.

The article also touches upon the ways the game might be seen negatively from fans. In that the mix of hype and constant delays might let fans down or only prepare them for disappointment when the game is eventually released.

Nintendo Fact Video: Rare and Obscure Zelda Titles

IMG_2100 While the Legend of Zelda series is generally spared from the overuse of its characters in copious amounts of spin-off games, it has spawned a few interesting (or disturbing) side games in its lifetime.

Great Fairy’s Fountain Hip-Hop Remix

gff I’ve always thought that the scantily clad Great Fairies of Ocarina of Time didn’t quite match the serene and pure beauty of the Great Fairy Fountains, but that may have had everything to do with the Fountains’ theme. Composer Alan Gee took the Great Fairy’s Fountain Theme and turned it on its head by giving it a sick beat and remixing it hip-hop style! While the song still sounds traditionally peaceful, it gives the Fountain a more urban atmosphere– far more befitting of those video-vixen Fairies. Give the remix a listen after the jump.

A Rather Twisted Summary of the Legend of Zelda Series

fff Have you ever tried explaining the events of the Legend of Zelda series to a friend who doesn’t like video games nor medieval adventures? If you haven’t, then the people over at YouTube channel, DailyYou have got you covered. In its most recent “Fairy Tale Friday” video, the channel pokes fun at some of the Zelda series’ odd happenings and sums up the bearers of the Triforce in brutally honest ways. Their telling of the story is riddled with innuendoes, memes, and comical analogies that would entertain even non-gamers.

Zelda Dungeon Talks: What Changes Could Be Made To The Overworld?

Hello everybody and welcome to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! In the Legend Of Zelda series, the overworld plays a pretty important role, especially in the original and Zelda II. It usually acts as the main hub to get to all the different parts of Hyrule, but it sometimes has it’s own significant purpose (for example it holds all the statues you need to find in Twilight Princess) as well as a few small secrets here and there. But what the main focus is today is the overall layout of the overworld. A majority of the time, the overworld isn’t completely open, with some parts not being accessible with the current gear you have and that leaves you with a sort of semi-linear area to explore when you aren’t tackling dungeons. Another point I’d like to throw in here is that everything looks the same. There aren’t many differences in the design of the overworld which is something I hope they fix in Zelda U and I’m sure they will. So what do you think guys? What changes would you like to see made to the overworld?

In this week’s Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members will share with us what they believe should be changed in the overworld. Read more…
