Zelda Theory: Zelda Wii U to Show Link’s Origins

zelda-screenshot-11 It’s common knowledge at this point that the ‘first’ Ganon(dorf) was the Demon King Demise, and that the ‘first’ Zelda was the mortal being the Goddess Hylia took after she sent the human race skyward and away from the war on the surface. This took place in Skyward Sword. The console game released in 2011 did explain the beginning of several key elements we see in each game. For an example other than the main characters, there’s the making of the Master Sword and the true meaning behind it’s seal on evil. However, there still seems to be some lose ends. The following theory from YouTuber HMK talks about Link, and whether the Link from Skyward Sword is the ‘first’ of the reincarnation cycle as Demise and Zelda/Hylia were, or if there was someone at Hylia’s side during her initial war with Demise. HMK analyzed Skyward Sword and the limited footage we’ve seen of Zelda Wii U and has come up with a theory that might just answer the question of Link’s true origin. Make the jump to check out his video and to hear what he has to say.

New Dorkly Video “If Zelda Games Played Like Fallout”

IMG_5048
What if instead of a fairy, Link had a Pip-Boy? Or if, rather than hearing Koji Kondo’s arrangements, players were treated to Three Dogs’ Galaxy News Radio? The comedic minds over at Dorkly asked themselves the same questions and have turned their answers into a hilarious fifty second parody of A Link to the Past intertwined with Fallout tropes. With a little bit of lock-picking, targeted combat, and a classic Fallout drink, life in Hyrule sure has changed for Link.

Some time ago, a talented YouTuber, Bryan Hermus, posted his orchestral cover of the Final exam song from Spirit Tracks. Bryan is great at what he does, and while he is not currently working on Zelda music primarily, this song could indicate some great Zelda music renditions from him in the future.

Theory: How The Zoras Evolved To The Rito

how the zora's evolvedIn one of Dr.Wily‘s latest videos he came up with ideas on why the Zora’s needed to evolve to later become the Rito. It could have been possible that the change in water conditions made it so that they were no longer able to live underwater. It could also have happened because there was not enough food for them in The Great Sea. The monsters in The Great Sea could have been a part of the reason that they needed to evolve as well. All of these points were detailed in his video.
