This month, Loot Crate, a service that mails subscribers a monthly gift box full of unknown nerdy merchandise, is sending out a box dubbed “Heroes 2” as a sequel to last year’s “Heroes” themed box. This time around our hero of legend is being honored with a “a licensed Legend of Zelda wearable” in Loot Crate’s standard July box. But that’s not all, as the one lucky subscriber who receives July’s Mega Crate will be sent a “Legend of Zelda shield backpack, Triforce wallet, beanie & scarf set.” Also, non-subscribers still have 15 days to order July’s crate!

Zelda Universe is holding auditions for its next film project, Skyward Sword: The Movie.

Auditions are open to the public from June 25th through July 9th, and audition tapes can be sent in here. For more details, hit the jump!
Marvel enthusiast Craig Warrack has quite an interesting passion. If you were to visit his YouTube channel, not only would you find several videos on reviewing brand action figures of either favorite heroes or favorite villains, but also videos showcasing the actions figures he’s created himself. Figures that, dare I say, might even be better than what you can buy at a toy store. Included in his collection of custom action figures- and quite recently finished- is none other than the King of Evil, Ganon!

Our friends at Zelda Universe have been working on an amazing project; to put together all the cutscenes from Hyrule Warriors, add voice actors, and release a “movie” that helps highlight the story in Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U. This project has been ongoing since February and we have already seen the release of the First and Second Act, and now we have reached the Finale with Zelda Universe releasing the final act in the story. Join Link, Zelda, Lana, and Impa on their battle to save the land of Hyrule. Head past the jump to see how the story ends.
As most of us already know, Hyrule Warriors is coming to the 3DS and bringing some new friends along with it. Both Tetra and the King of Hyrule will be joining the roster for Hyrule Warriors Legends, and suitably the game will include somewhat of a Wind Waker style story-arc and new stages, according to this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. Additionally, Tetra will brandish some unique weapons and both newcomers will of course have their own distinctive movesets.

In addition to this, Nintendo hyped up Super Mario Maker and is continuing to push the game with a recent Best Buy pin deal.

Also at participating Best Buy stores on June 20th, just playing Mario Maker in-store will earn you a free 30th Anniversary Super Mario Bros. pin! Hit the jump for more details.
In this week’s ZD Top 5, we decide that the fate of Hyrule’s denizens can take a backseat to our own personal whims. Link doesn’t have to spend ALL of his time dungeon crawling, you know, and sometimes setting the fate of the world down and replacing it with a fishing pole can be a rewarding venture. As usual, feel free to leave your own personal lists in the comments below.
Earlier today Zelda Dungeon released it’s first post for one of our newest features that will each week cover a plethora of Zelda inspired goodies.

Talk about perfect timing.
Go ahead and make the jump for the full list of new accessories, with an emphasis on the upcoming Zelda products. This is Zelda Dungeon after all.
One bit of information about Zelda Wii U that was “leaked” by a Nintendo Representative was the idea that Zelda Wii U would have different enemies at night than it would during the day. This in-game day-to-night progression is nothing new to the Zelda series and was shown in the Wii U title’s gameplay trailer, so YouTube game analyst Zeltik with the help of Commonwealth Realm took things a step further and examined the evidence supporting and the implications of possibly the series’ most extensive day and night cycle.
He claims that the internal clock of Zelda Wii U contains a longer cycle than that of Grand Theft Auto V and Witcher 3, it may even run on a real-time 24 hour cycle! Hit the jump to see his analysis.
Usually the Zelda series is all about it’s more epic or heart felt moments throughout each game. But there is a side that I feel we rarely get to see- not that it isn’t there, it’s just not there too often- from The Legend of Zelda, and that’s humor. However, YouTube user and animator Callegos-Y has given the Zelda community something to compensate.
Make the jump to check out their histerical SFM animation of Link’s desperation to collect enough rupees in his quest to purchase a shield.
Some Zelda merchandise includes a few very beautiful stained glass depictions featuring the artistic style from The Wind Waker. If you’re into those mesmerizing pieces than you have to check out these fan made, stained glass Triforce pendants!
Once again The Legend of Zelda series has proven its prestige in the Nintendo community by landing both of its current Wii U titles on Nintendo UK’s “Top 10 Wii U Games” list. In May, Nintendo UK asked fans on Twitter what their favorite Wii U games were, and Zelda fans new and old made their choices known. In the end, The Wind Waker HD took fourth place and Hyrule Warriors snagged the third place spot. Seeing as the Zelda games were only bested by Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Mario Kart 8, third and fourth place is impressive indeed.
