Many Zelda games in the past have incorporated a time travel mechanic. Often, it involves Link going between two different times, as in A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, and Skyward Sword. Majora’s Mask in particular allowed Link to endlessly repeat the same three-day cycle. The sequel to the Breath of the Wild, therefore, would not be out of place by incorporating such a mechanic, not only because of the traditions of it’s predecessors, but because of it’s pre-established potential. Namely, there would be…

The Master Sword has been the staple weapon of the Zelda series time and time again. We’ve seen a few other swords featured, but the Master Sword has been the pinnacle of weapons in Zelda lore. The Legend of Zelda series has been around for 33 years; so is it time for the series to have a new main weapon? The series has seen different instances where it has been updated or refreshed like the art style of The Wind…

The Legend of Zelda has been a staple series in the lives of many gamers, including mine. My first Zelda game was Ocarina of Time, but it’s not the title that defined my childhood. The Zelda game that takes that prize for me is The Wind Waker. When my brother and I received our GameCube for Christmas, it opened up a new world of games that we could rent from Blockbuster. I remember seeing The Wind Waker’s golden box on…

Welcome back to another Zelda Runners. I’m Euan, and over the next 5 or 6 scrolls (or directional arrow key taps, I won’t judge), I’ll bring you bang up to date with all the latest Zelda speedrunning news. Today, we’re talking Zelda II Tournaments, Randomizer updates, and stopping time in Majora’s Mask (but not as you know it). So, without any more hesitation, put your hands on your hips, and bring your knees in tight…   Now Playing The Zelda II All Keys Tournament has made it to…

Hello everybody and welcome to The Champions’ Cast Pokémon Cast! With not a lot of Zelda news going on, the crew decides to deep dive into the world of Pokémon Sword and Shield! What are our initial impressions? Do we like the Galar region? What aspects of these games remind us of Breath of the Wild? Is this game groundbreaking enough to be called “the BOTW of Pokémon“? Maybe most importantly, is Hop the most annoying character Nintendo has ever…

The Legend of Zelda; a story told over countless eras — or games, should I say?  The story tells of a brave warrior who battles against a fierce foe, all to save a beautiful princess.  The princess in question has been a helpless maiden, a stoic monarch and even a goddess reborn.  She has pulled on the strings of time, sacrificed her throne and even herself in the best interests of her people.  She is Princess Zelda, possessor of the…

What’s up, Zelda fam?! Are you ready to partake in yet another Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest this fine Monday? With all of 2019’s big Zelda releases in the rearview mirror, I’ve had the chance to burn through some of the screenshots I’ve been saving in my contest folder. For example, last week we focused on an evergreen image from Callego’s epic Zelda animation “Racing for Rupees”. This week, I have decided to present you all with a screenshot I’ve had…

Remakes have become a staple of the Zelda franchise ever since the release of Ocarina of Time 3D in 2011 – excluding the more obscure BS Zelda no Densetsu, Link’s Awakening DX, and Ocarina of Time: Master Quest. Since the N64 classic first hit the 3DS, five remakes have been released in the forms of Four Swords Anniversary Edition, The Wind Waker HD, Majora’s Mask 3D, Twilight Princess HD,  and the recent Link’s Awakening. Every remake has its fair share of additions and changes, big…

The Legend of Zelda series has always been set in the fantasy realm of Hyrule. As far as modern technology goes, we’ve seen the Sheikah technology featured in Breath of the Wild, but not much more than that. Would a game set in modern times work? In an odd kind of one-off way I could see it working. It could be a modernizing kind of magic. Kind of like how Harry Potter is set in 90s era England, but the…
