In Skyward Sword, the threat of the Imprisoned being released is an important component of the story. With the Goddess’s seal beginning to wane, allowing darkness to swallow the Surface, part of Link’s quest is to prevent this evil from escaping. From a story perspective, this is a great way to create urgency and excitement. Unfortunately, gameplay wise, this came with the task of fighting off the Imprisoned multiple times throughout the game. While the three battles are varied from…

Breath of the Wild has been released for a little over a year now, and some would say it is the best in the franchise. Untraditional for a Zelda game, Breath of the Wild broke away from typical Zelda norms in its style of gameplay and story-telling aspects. The question lies that for the few of us who didn’t think it was outstanding, what can be improved? Dr. Wily, well-known for covering Nintendo games on YouTube, recently published a video that covers five things that would have made The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the…

Breath of the Wild has been out for over a year now, yet players are still finding secrets, references, and continuity nods to other parts of the storied Zelda franchise. One such nod is in the Trials of the Sword DLC. Redditor kamuilyn found this great shoutout to Ocarina of Time, as the monks within the final room are resting in the iconic poses of the Seven Sages from the climactic final battle of Ocarina of Time. Fans may well remember…

A Japan-exclusive Breath of the Wild book has revealed some stunning concept art created during Breath of the Wild‘s development. Some of the beautiful images from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which was released late last year, have started to make their way online through My Nintendo News and other sites across the web. These images depict early designs for Divine Beasts, in-game characters, and so much more. Because Nintendo is usually quite secretive and guarded about the development…

A recently recurring puzzle motif in The Legend of Zelda series is collecting various “Tears.” This collection style puzzle first appeared in Twilight Princess as the Tears of Light, a quest in which you had to scour a brand new area of the dark and gritty Twilight Realm, hunting down Twilit Insects for their Tears. This puzzle mechanic returned in Spirit Tracks in the Tower of Spirits, though there were less tears, to aid you against battling the various Phantoms during your ascent. Collecting…

What piece of music do you think of when you think of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? For me, Breath of the Wild‘s title theme, which was first revealed during the 2017 E3 trailer, is the most iconic piece of music from the game. The title theme has moments of pure ambiance and, along with its distinct instrumentation, the song helps to differentiate Breath of the Wild from many previous games in the Zelda series. Despite only being…

YouTuber Pwnapplez has recently uploaded a new video recipe for his latest culinary special. It’s the Goron Rock Roast from Breath of the Wild! This recipe comes straight from Pwnapplez own “Cucco’s Kitchen” where he makes various animé and video game-style drinks and dishes. After a brief explanation of what the chef is aiming for, viewers get a list of ingredients that are usually available in most supermarkets and food stores. There is a lot of meat involved in this recipe in…

From Moblins to Darknuts, the Zelda series has incorporated a lot of different enemies over the years. While most make sense within the world of The Legend of Zelda, some are definitely more questionable. The Guardians that were introduced within Breath of the Wild, as cool, interesting, and intimidating as they were, are some of the enemies that raise questions. On one hand, giant laser-shooting robots seem to be pushing the technological limits of the world of the Zelda series, and the Divine Beasts could be included with…

Zelda Warfare is our series in which Mases and I race Ocarina of Time 3D in segmented sections. Each episode, or campaign, is worth a point. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game has won the war! Each time we add a special “Rule of Engagement” or more to shake things up even more. Brother Mases, I knew you’d come. In what will surely be a WONDERFUL campaign, we make our way through the Haunted Wasteland and…
