The YouTuber who made it big with lovingly poking fun at Ocarina of Time, Josh M. of the channel Really Freakin’ Clever, has released yet another part in his series where he looks at the things wrong with Majora’s Mask. In the first three parts he did the opening of Majora’s Mask and did the first two dungeons: Woodfall Temple and Snowhead Temple.

There are so many talented musicians creating their own covers of many songs from The Legend of Zelda series, and this duo is no exception. YouTube Channel, TeraCMusic has recently uploaded a beautiful medley of music from the Zelda series in collaboration with Michelle Heafy. The duo created a compilation of songs from Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, and A Link Between Worlds. The harmony of their voices in unison adds so much to the original medley and their transition in between the songs is pretty flawless!
Gunpowder-based weapons are not very common in The Legend of Zelda. Sure, there are bombs, cannons and the rocket launcher Auru used against that one Aeralfos in the final dungeon of Twilight Princess. But aside from those there are no handheld firearms. Of course, there are a lot of fan ideas for Zelda games set in a more modern setting with guns and such. One of the people with an idea as such is upcoming voice actor ProZD (not affiliated with Zelda Dungeon in any way), who made a sound clip about what would happen if Link had a gun. After making this the YouTube video maker Chance McMichael took this sound clip and made a video of it. You can watch the video after the break! Read more…

Many Zelda fans across the world are desperately hoping for the release of Zelda U, as well as the promise of the beautifully open world that was shown to us in footage from the Game Awards Show last year. But since thus far more footage and information about the game has continued to elude us some are resorting to creating their own version of Hyrule. The YouTube channel GameChap has used a map in the PS4 game Far Cry 4 to recreate the world from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. In this recreation you will see many familiar landmarks such as the mighty Deku Tree, Death Mountain, and much more.

YouTuber Beta64 has recently released a new video in his series detailing the beta elements of classic games, and this time, he covers Four Swords Adventures. The Gamecube title is not the most popular of Zelda games, but it is still a notable one, and the developers seemed to have really worked hard on it, judging by the major changes it went through. Some things ahhown in the bideo might surpeise you.
There’s a certain story within the Zelda universe I’m sure we’re all familiar with: the creation of the world and Triforce. First brought up in Ocarina of Time it tells of how the three golden goddesses Din, Nayru and Farore cultivated the land, and produced the life forms and laws that govern the world. Upon their departure they created the Triforce which could grant the wish of anyone that touched it. The goddesses watch over Hyrule and have protected it from Ganon’s evil plans but there is some evidence to suggest the goddesses aren’t the caring, divine entities they seem to be. A video by ProtoMario delves into this theory and puts forth a good case.
