We are unbelievably hyped over Link’s Awakening the past couple of weeks. Needless to say we can’t wait to get our hands on it, but Mases has some thoughts that have been bouncing around in his head. In the newest Hyrule Compendium, we discuss some reservations Mas has surrounding the remake. Of course not even that can kill our excitement, but be sure to let us know if you think he’s even a little bit off his rocker! Check out…

Rock / metal and The Legend of Zelda just seem to go hand in hand, as we’ve seen with many fan arrangements over the years. This rockin’ medley is no exception, as musicians Ro Panuganti & Colbydude take us on a musical journey through Link’s Awakening, from the catastrophe that brings Link to Koholint in the first place, through the overworld, and finally to the journey’s end. These guys bring such skill and musicality to many of my favorite Link’s Awakening tunes in…

The Zelda series has experimented with a variety of motifs for its dungeons throughout the years. Forest, fire, ice, water, desert, shadow– heck, a couple of temples have even centered on time itself! That said, Nintendo is nothing if not imaginative. There’s got to be some ground left to cover; a dungeon theme we’ve each been dying to see in a Zelda game. Although I’m not crazy about most of Breath of the Wild’s dungeons, one element I seriously appreciate…

Earlier this month, Microsoft and Xbox seemingly teased upcoming support for the Nintendo Switch. And while no official announcements have yet been made, recent reports indicate that Microsoft plans to soon launch its Xbox Game Pass subscription service on the Switch. Relying on Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming technology, players will be able to stream Xbox One titles to their Nintendo Switch consoles. Game Informer, which corroborated the initial report by Direct-Feed Games, reports that an official announcement is expected later…

A Zelda fan’s wallet never seems to get a break. Online retailer Merchoid recently added two officially licensed Zelda products to their website. Both the the battery-powered Legend of Zelda: I Need Some Healing Potion Jar Light and the Legend Of Zelda: Time To Save Hyrule Triforce Alarm Clock are available for preorder right now. The Legend of Zelda: I Need Some Healing Potion Jar Light stands at 15cm (around six inches) tall and cycles between five different colors: red, blue, green, orange,…

Alongside all of the other innovations Breath of the Wild brought to the Zelda series, it also saw the return of the Fire Rod (alongside various other elemental Rods). The Fire Rod’s first appearance was all the way back in A Link to the Past and, aside from one-offs here and there, magical items and weapons have been few and far between ever since. Some of the earlier 3D games featured a Magic Meter, but this was used mainly for spells, rather than weapons. Breath…

Hello everyone! How’s it going this week? Welcome back to Artists of Legend! I was looking through some of my previously-used submissions earlier today, and I was reminded why I love this series so much. It’s so cool to see the work of such talented people, and it’s an honor to be able to feature what they do. Thank you to everyone who submits artwork for helping to make this series awesome! Now, let’s get right into everything! Submitted Artwork…

The bird-like Rito in The Legend of Zelda make up one of my personal favorite races in the series. However, they’ve only made an appearance twice, and in vastly different locations, as well. In their first appearance in The Wind Waker, their home was on Dragon Roost Island, with the birdfolk living around the base of a large volcano. While there wasn’t much to see looking out from Dragon Roost Island, it certainly had great music. Meanwhile, the Rito, in their most recent…

Reggie Fils-Aimé, the well-known face of Nintendo in North America, is retiring. Announced in a press release by Nintendo and then confirmed in an official message from Reggie on Nintendo’s Twitter (embedded above), the long-time Nintendo of America president will be leaving his position on April 15th, 2019. Reggie, who has been with Nintendo for 15 years, released a statement through Nintendo’s PR saying: “Nintendo owns a part of my heart forever. It’s a part that is filled with gratitude —…

One of the best things about loving music from the Zelda series is that there’s never a shortage of new and amazing covers of the classic themes. Whether it’s a new metal version of the Goron City theme or a jaw-dropping, epic medley of songs from Majora’s Mask, fans can always expect to find something that will move them in ways that only music can. The folks that contribute over at OverClocked ReMix are no exception to this either, and…
