Latest Updates

Throughout the run of the Zelda series, there have been over 120 main bosses to be found in the various dungeons, castles and caves that Link has traversed. There has been a lot of variety in boss designs over the years, but there are some that stand out among the rest. Stallord is a fan favorite for the exhilarating speed of riding the spinner on rails. Phantom Ganon in Ocarina of Time is literally picturesque. The ghost horseman jumps in and out of paintings…

You don’t mean that.” “What is it? Who are they?” asked Dalal. “Stay in there, honey,” Kiyoko directed. “I’ll get us out of this. I promise.” “What’s there to get out of, buddy, ol’ boy?” the voice called out again….

Step aside Ganon, Tom Nook is the final boss now! At least, that’s the impression I get after watching this Animal Crossing-styled fan recreation of the latest Breath of the Wild 2 trailer. Each scene and character in the trailer has been copied with an exacting sense of detail. The world of Hyrule and its skies are now populated by costumed villagers who move in time with the original video’s sound effects. On the whole, the animation is charming and creative….

In light of Thanksgiving, I have been thinking a lot about gratitude lately. And I am beyond grateful for The Legend of Zelda, as I believe all of you are as well. I’m grateful for the life lessons I often take to heart as I play through the empowering stories, I’m thankful for the memorable characters and epic adventures, and I’m especially grateful for the little inklings of confidence I gain when I hear the puzzle solve jingle–it never gets old….

With both waves of DLC for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity finally released, all of the game’s planned content is now available. In the January issue of Nintendo Dream (released November 20th), the Japanese publication interviewed four members of the development team to discuss the game’s Expansion Pass, the new content and story beats, and much more. One particularly interesting topic discussed during the interview was the Expansion Pass’ pre-release material, specifically the illustrations created to represent the two respective…

Several notable Zelda bosses were so powerful that they could only be destroyed by their own weapons. Heavy hitters such as Agahnim, Ganondorf, Yuga, Vaati, and Phantom Ganon have all used this technique in an attempt to finish off Link. To those who haven’t experienced it, Dead Man’s Volley is a recurring combat trial in the Zelda series. A boss or miniboss will unleash an orb of energy at Link, and the player must quickly strike the orb with a sword…

DLC, short for Downloadable Content, continues to be a huge discussion point in the video game industry. More than ever before, game studios have the ability to use DLC to add content to their games and expand the player’s experience with the game. Though there are examples of free DLC, players often have to pay in some way to gain access to DLC, which can also mean more revenue for studios. While Nintendo was fairly behind to the rest of…

If players could go to a vacation in the land of Hyrule, Zora’s Domain would be high on the destination list. Whether it is Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, or Breath of the Wild, the town is one of the most visually distinct locations in the Zelda series, with creative water-based designs. Often built around natural wonders like waterfalls and rivers, the home of the Zora is almost always a beautiful and serene haven for Link to explore. Complete with…
