Red RingRings make for handy magic items: they’re small, lightweight and are easy to carry in addition to your other magical gear. Finding magic rings in the Zelda games is always useful to either continue in the game, make Link tough enough to more easily survive the later dungeons or even give him a variety of bonuses. But they have only appeared in 2D games, with the last time being The Minish Cap. Perhaps it is time for them to make their return? Read more after the break!

zdL16czZelda games have been known (and have been confused) by the fact that Princess Zelda is not actually the main character.

hyrule-warriors-ghirahim-vs-link

Zelda games typically adhere to a certain formula and style of play: You explore the environment around you, collect powerful weapons and upgrades, traverse dungeons while solving puzzles, and they usually end with you saving the world, or even worlds in some cases. However, the release of Hyrule Warriors has illustrated that Nintendo may finally be coming out of their comfort zone and are willing to try radically different things with their existing IPs. In fact, it’s fair to say that Hyrule Warriors is more a Dynasty Warriors game than a Zelda game.
