Culture Shock: The Origins of Epona

Epona and LinkDespite appearing in only three core Zelda games as a mount (and in The Minish Cap as an NPC owned by Malon and Talon), Epona has left quite the impression on fans of The Legend of Zelda. She’s a way to move around quickly, circumvent certain obstacles and allows Link to engage in awesome battles in Twilight Princess. In the three adventures she appeared in she has been a faithful companion of Link, helping him save Hyrule and Termina, in two cases on nothing but a diet of carrots. Of all of Link’s red animal companions (Dimitri, the King of Red Lions, Link’s Loftwing) she is by far the most beloved of the bunch. But is there any real-life basis to her name and what she can do? The YouTube channel The Game Theorists take a look at this, with the latest video in their Culture Shock series. Watch the video after the break!

HMK: Hyrulian Royal Family Exploration

0One thing in the Zelda series that has often gone surprisingly unmentioned throughout the last three decades is the royal family of Hyrule. In a game that focuses on an adventure usually involving having to save a princess, you would think that the princess’ family would be more involved, and yet there is a lot of room for theorizing about them, as they are not seen much. A little while back, YouTubers HMK and Commonwealth Realm joined together to discuss and explore the royal family of Hyrule, and drop a few theories while they are at it.

Two Jamming Electronic Zelda Remixes by nOkbient

nok While there are many different types of Zelda musical renditions, (orchestral, acapella, synthesizer) my favorites as of late are the electronic remixes. Youtube remixer nOkbient released two different Zelda mixes this past week, pulling songs and sounds from throughout the series and skillfully mashing them together into these electronic beauties. The first focuses primarily on manipulating the Song of Storms and does so charmingly, the second is composed around the Dungeon Theme from the original Legend of Zelda. These remixes were tastefully done, there’s a great variety to the pieces and they never get overly noisy. Listen to nOkbient’s jam-worthy compositions after the jump!

Zelda Wii U Contains the Longest Day and Night Cycle in a Zelda Game

htw 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.
