I’m sure all of us know that The Legend of Zelda franchise has a huge community, so we’re bound to see fans creating various things from, or inspired by the series. As we’ve all come to know, many Zelda fans have created their own custom Zelda-themed products, ranging from necklaces, to lamps, to an NES in-whole. And as I’m sure we’ve all seen a few Zelda-inspired headphones here and there over the time we’ve explored the internet. But the fan who customized the face-plates of this headset to make it Majora’s Mask-themed…? It’s just too beautiful for words… If you want to check it out in all it’s beautiful, shiny glory, take a hit at the jump!
There are NO plans for a Zelda theme park, and the previous article was not meant to be released to the public for any reason other than the purposes of a traditional April Fool’s Day article. The Zelda Theme park post was written as an early concept for an April Fool’s article. It was in early development and had not even been approved by Zelda Dungeon. However, the first draft of this article was mistakenly published before the concept could be fully brought to life and determined acceptable as an article for said day. I apologize for this getting out, and for any distress it may have caused. Zelda Dungeon would never report such baseless news.
If you love the Legend of Zelda series, then you know who Tingle is. The middle-aged man whose vehicle of choice is a balloon attached to his back. Tingle first appeared in Majora’s Mask on the N64 and appeared in quite a few Zelda games proceeding that; specifically Oracle of Ages, The Wind Waker, Four Swords Adventures, The Minish Cap, and he is part of the Majora’s Mask DLC of Hyrule Warriors. Tingle also makes minor appearances in Phantom Hourglass as a poster on the wall of Mercay Island’s bar, in Spirit Tracks as statues in both Hyrule Castle Town’s shop and Linebeck III’s shop, and in Skyward Sword as a doll in Zelda’s room at the Knight Academy. Kotaku recently had an interview with Eiji Aonuma on how Tingle ever came to be. Check out what Nintendo’s top Zelda creator said, after the jump!
Welcome to the sixth installment of Piece of Heart, where we look at The Legend of Zelda series through the eyes of a literary professor and examine how its literary elements enhance the gaming experience. This week’s lesson is titled “Hanseldee and Greteldum” so we’ll scour the Zelda series in search of parallels to fairy tales (oddly enough I found none alluding to Hansel and Gretel, nor Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, so I changed the title rather than be misleading).
The land of Hyrule connects with the real world when it takes a page from our favorite bedtime stories. A young boy clad in green with an unruly shadow and fairy companion, a girl who disguises herself as a male warrior in order to protect her family and homeland, fairies who aid a hero on his way to slay a dragon and wake a sleeping princess– The Legend of Zelda sounds like something straight out of Disney!
The third wave of Amiibo are quickly flying off the shelves, and with two more Zelda characters introduced in this wave it has been one of the most popular yet among Zelda fans. So, in accordance with previous waves, custom Amiibo have begun to appear on the internet as artists get their hands on the new additions. With Toon Link’s inclusion in the third wave, some customs figures have emerged that are just too good not to share. Hit the jump to see more!
Reddit user Cowdermon went to his local GameStop cosplaying as Skull Kid for the release of Majora’s Mask 3D. This was Cowdemon’s first attempt at cosplay, but he seems to have either a natural talent or a true devotion to The Legend of Zelda because as you’ll see the cosplay is gorgeous. In fact, it was so good that the staff members at Cowdermon’s GameStop asked him to do a little promoting while he was there!
The cover for “The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D Perfect Guide” book, published by Famitsu is a thing of beauty. Famitsu’s Perfect Guide series’ additions are the end all be all of guide books, but unfortunately this one will only be released in Japan. It contains detailed charts and maps for Majora’s Mask 3D, as well as guides to understanding the three-day cycle, and directions on where to find heart pieces and stray fairies.

Majora’s Mask had a very unique approach to how Link could use powers with each mask having a different ability that he can use; however, that wasn’t the only case where Link had a mask. In Windwaker you can also obtain a Mask which would allow you to see the HP of an enemy. While masks have not been used often in the Zelda series they leave a very memorable impact on the game. With that being said should masks be used in any future Zelda titles? Click on the jump to find out more.
