Bowsette, the webcomic created craze that’s sweeping the nation (and possible the world), is now playable in Breath of the Wild thanks to a mod by Lynard Killer. The fully playable Bowsette mod can wear both her signature dress, which even has some dress physics built in, and her bikini. The mod isn’t available for download yet, but footage of it in action is out for curious viewers. Though Bowsette may never become an official Nintendo character, at least we…

The Zelda games have been one of the most far-reaching series in recent history. Ask almost any video game player if they’ve heard of the Legend of Zelda in some form or another and the answer will most likely be a resounding, “YES!” But all involvement must begin somewhere. I was lucky enough to be introduced to it very early on in my life through my babysitter and brother when I was around four years old via Legend of Zelda, Adventure of Link, and Link’s…

I remember watching the trailer for Mulaka for the first time. It struck me just how reminiscent it was of Breath of the Wild’s final trailer shown by Nintendo at their 2017 Switch Presentation. The first 40 seconds or so were almost a beat-by-beat replication of that impactful Zelda trailer: sweeping landscapes, fluid combat, epic music, and a lone hero looking out at an expansive world that was waiting to be discovered. Mulaka’s trailer emulated that final look at Breath…

Ladies and gentleman, my name is Kristen. Rosario. And I am your host for the CAVE OF TRIALS! Now before we get started on what is sure to be a very thrilling second half of round one for the Halloween Havoc Tournament, I like to address an issue a commenter brought up brought up last week and that’s favoritism. Now I did say that the 16 competitors were chosen by me, but only because of what unique match ups they…

I love amiibos. Not only do they make really cool collector’s items, they drop some super fun stuff in Breath of the Wild. Stuff that, no lie, I kind of rely on. Arrows and weapons and such. But, some Zelda amiibos drop some awesome things. For example, one of my favorite items in the game comes from our Princess, the Lady of Smash, Zelda herself. The Twilight Bow, with arrows of light that fire straight and true. A sniper’s dream, basically. It is my goal…

While the dungeons of The Legend of Zelda series are what makes it so unique. The pacing of objectives and story between dungeons can be very important as well. In our newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I begin to take a look at the different approaches to pacing from dungeon to dungeon. This time around we look at the games that we dub “Dungeon Gauntlets”, which are games that have few objectives or story between dungeons. Do you…

Back in May, greeting card and gift juggernaut Hallmark unveiled a series of Nintendo ornaments as part of its Keepsake brand. After releasing Mario Kart and Donkey Kong ornaments in July, the company finally has something special for Legend of Zelda fans. Earlier this month, Hallmark officially released a nifty Link ornament, fashioned after the legendary hero’s appearance in the very first Zelda game. Released on October 6th, this Link ornament seems perfect for a Zelda fan’s Christmas tree this…

Chapter 27: Fall – Part One Deya and Avela looked at the wall with confusion as the room shook. From his work table, Deya looked over at his winged companion. “What do you suppose that was?” Avela shrugged. He shrugged back, turning his head to return to his project. “You know, I think some of this might be ready for a test-run soon. What do you think?” Giggling, Avela responded, “You’d know better than I would.” The earth shook again,…

The Legend of Zelda series has had a handful of composers writing the diverse scores throughout the years. From the very beginning with Koji Kondo, to the most recent composer of Breath of the Wild, Manaka Kataoka. But what if they were composed by somebody else? What if the scores for future or past Zelda games were not written by classically trained composers, but rather contemporary artists, a different genre, or even just a different composer? How would it change the games or series…

The stables in Breath of the Wild are places of peace and hospitality in the wild world of Hyrule, acting as trading posts and centers of communication across the world. They’re wonderful places to rest up and take shelter from the dangerous world that Link resides in. A rearrangement of Epona’s theme, the stables theme is one of the most peaceful songs from Breath of the Wild‘s beautiful score. This soothing arrangement by YouTube user yokkeOcarina uses guitar, ocarina, and a pair of…
