Skyward Sword, from my experience with fans of The Legend of Zelda series, is one of the more controversial games in the franchise. Some people love the game for its story and incredible dungeons, while other people complain about how linear it was, or more commonly, the motion controls. Ever since the game was poorly showcased at E3 2010, the motion controls have been a frequent point of discussion. While some people just dislike motion controls in video games in general, others…

The Zelda Challenge has returned and we are starting 2018 with a hot topic! There are many beloved characters in The Legend of Zelda series. As documented in the latest entry in the Hyrule Compendium, there is a never ending supply to choose from. This only made our debate much more difficult this time around. Kevin and I were tasked to pick one character from the series who we felt was the most fleshed out and compelling. I personally felt…

Welcome to the Cave of Trials. The premise is simple: Every week, two characters from The Legend of Zelda series will duke it out for the Zelda Informer Championship. Whoever has more votes at the end of the week, wins. This is strictly a popularity contest, not who you think would win in a fight; so vote for who you like better! The winner will then go on next week to defend the title against a new challenger, as decided by…

Hello again! We’re back again, and the holidays are coming up soon, so be prepared for some Zelda-themed holiday challenges starting soon! But for now, things are sticking to the norm, so let’s get to it! Last Week’s Challenge Last week,  we asked you to create art of Link being trained by the Hero’s Shade from Twilight Princess. There’s only one piece of art this week, which isn’t a submission, but it’s still some terrific work! By Radiant on DeviantArt I’m…

Technology and magic are often two ways to explain phenomena in fantasy worlds, and the Zelda franchise is no exception. Many unexplained mysteries abound, and perhaps one of the more interesting is the origins of the Sheikah technology found throughout Breath of the Wild. The YouTube channel Chamber of Sages sheds some light on this cryptic topic in their latest video. Their theory posits that the Goddess Flames, specifically Nayru’s, may be the power source. Both are represented as a blue gout of flame, and…

The Champions’ Ballad DLC is finally here and Zelda fans aren’t the only ones celebrating. My Nintendo is offering some great Zelda inspired rewards, including two wallpapers featuring images related to the DLC; Link on the Master Cycle Zero and a group shot of the five champions, each going for 50 Platinum Points. These will be up for grabs until March 31st, 2018, so don’t miss your chance to snatch them! Also available for a short amount of time are…

With past installments like Wind Waker and Twilight Princess receiving HD remasters over the last few years, I think it only makes sense for Skyward Sword to be considered next. At the time, the graphics looked good, but being barred by the Wii’s 720 graphic limitations causes the game to look a little blurry these days, despite its gorgeous aesthetic and colors. Then the next biggest question for a Skyward Sword remake is, of course, the motion controls. Generally speaking,…

Ladies and gentleman, the time for petty squabbles is over; from this point forward, it’s an all-out war. Having risen above all challengers over several grueling weeks, the big four of our Best Dungeon tournament are ready to step into the Semi-Finals. Only two will move on to the final round, so let’s stop delaying the inevitable and get our first blistering bout underway. Note: Despite the website merger, this feature will retain the title “Zelda Informer Versus” until the end…

It’s finally here! It’s with great pleasure and pride that we at Zelda Informer welcome all you Zelda fans to Zelda Informer’s Best Zelda Ever: 2017 Edition! It’s been awhile since the last time Zelda Informer put together a list like this, and in that time, a lot has happened. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was finally released; longtime editors left, while new editors joined; opinions changed, games aged for better and for worse; and even Zelda…

Skyward Sword greatly expanded on the lore and mythos in the Zelda series, introducing an origin story that would ultimately lead to a never-ending conflict. In all of the games prior to Skyward Sword, Link was often introduced as a low ranking member of society, including a rancher, island dweller, and “the boy without a fairy,” reinforcing this notion that all of Link’s journeys start with humble beginnings that require him to accept his role as the fated hero. Breath…
