Welcome… to Fall Brawl! I’m very excited to be here hosting this tournament. You might remember a few months ago, we hosted Zelda Dungeon’s Musical March Madness — a twist on the traditional college basketball tournament that featured an NCAA-style bracket, but with tunes from the Zelda series in place of basketball teams. The concept was such a success and our readers had so much fun with it, we’ve decided to make it a semi-annual event. To this end, we…

The mask transformations in Majora’s Mask allow Link to embody the spirit of the mask before they died, to the point that characters mistaken Link for the spirit whose appearance he has taken after. The Fierce Deity mask can only be obtained by acquiring all of the other masks first, allowing Link to take on the form of a powerful warrior that, according to Eiji Aonuma, embodies “the memories of all of the people of Termina,” effectively making him the…

The international waters of gaming have been getting some pretty sweet swag when it comes to the Link’s Awakening remake. The UK, for instance, got an amazing collector’s edition for the game, which includes a Game Boy Classic steelbook and an awesome 120-page artbook. So color us not surprised that the mainland of Nintendo, Japan, gets some nice goodies as well. My Nintendo in Japan is now offering some new Link’s Awakening prizes for those looking to spend some platinum…

Breath of the Wild is a remarkable game with how much freedom it has; not just in terms of exploration, but even down to how one approaches solving puzzles. It’s safe to say that no playthrough of the game will go exactly the same way for most people. In a new interview published by Nintendo, developers of Breath of the Wild sat down to talk about designing the game with players in mind. In this interview, art director Satoru Takizawa,…

I’m Matt Pederberg, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, and Link’s Awakening is my favourite Legend of Zelda game. As such I am incredibly excited for the remake coming out later this month. I am excited to both relive my favourite moments in glorious HD, as well as find out everything that is different (to my delight or dismay remains to be seen). One of these differences, as already apparent as the updated graphics, is the music. With a new age comes new…

Among the many questions still surrounding Breath of the Wild‘s newly-announced sequel, we still don’t know if the new title will utilize the map of its predecessor or a completely new map. We do know, however, that Nintendo is currently looking to hire talented environment designers for this new game and that they are taking the search very seriously. Nintendo recently published an interview with three members of Breath of the Wild‘s environment team as part of the recruitment process,…

With its release date finally upon us, all eyes and ears are now on Link’s Awakening. Fans finally have opportunity to once again experience the many sights and sounds of Koholint Island. What surprises could be we waiting in this Switch remake? As we learned from recent promotional videos, the iconic song “Ballad of the Windfish” has been reimagined with lyrics for this new version of Link’s Awakening. The song, which was just a beautiful melody that Marin sang for you…

The one tribe that has been getting the most attention from Zelda theorists since the Breath of the Wild sequel’s initial announcement has been the Zonai tribe. This ancient and mysterious race of people has been the focal point in theories relating to Ganondorf, the Barbarian Armor set, and the Gerudo, just to name a few. From the looks of things, the lore of the Zonai is more intriguing than we could have ever thought. One such theory comes to…

Today is the long-awaited day! Link’s Awakening for the Switch is finally out! To commemorate this important day, Nintendo has shared some pretty cool official artwork for the game on Twitter, and I really enjoyed seeing it! The new artwork depicts a memorable scene from the game in which Marin is on a section of the broken bridge atop Tal Tal Heights, and it cannot hold her weight for very long. To save Marin, Link swiftly uses the Hookshot to…

Today is the day!  It seems like forever-ago that Nintendo announced the Link’s Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch.  And now, at last, fan’s can finally get their hands on the long awaited game! I’ve spent months looking forward to playing Link’s Awakening on the Switch.  In fact, I haven’t even played the original version of the game, which makes this adventure even more mysterious and exciting for me.  I have been watching the trailers and listening to my fellow…

We left early in the morning for Mount Lanayru. Zelda had changed into a pure white dress, adorned with golden jewels. The attire made her look much older and I realized that soon, my little bird would no longer be a child. As we neared the trail up the mountain, I wrapped my cloak around the princess so she would not catch cold.  “Not much longer now,” I said, mounting my horse again and riding next to her. “I shall…
