We don’t know a whole lot about Hylian culture beyond what is featured in different games. Every race has its own traditions and festivities, and certainly they celebrate different holidays. But if you could create a Hylian holiday, what would you create? I would create a holiday called the Cucco Festival! Cuccos are a pretty prominent animal across the Zelda series, so why not create a holiday to celebrate them? They’re known for their aggressive attitude if provoked, but all…

There’s a great simplicity to Kass’ theme from Breath of the Wild. With just a simple accordion, this Ruto weaves for you a thrilling tale of legend using only his musical instrument. Well, the cover for this amazing theme that we’re listening to today uses a completely different kind of instrument to tell its tale. This synth cover of Kass’ theme from Amie Waters provides a different take on the accordion-driven score from Breath of the Wild, making use of…

To say Link’s Awakening is eccentric is… a bit of an understatement. Playing the newly-released remake for the Nintendo Switch reminded me of just how different it is in spite of its traditional quest structure. It’s an adventure that revels in its sense of whimsy while delivering poignant, memorable moments of its own. It never takes itself seriously, and fans are capitalizing on that fact. YouTube channel Samination has delivered an animated parody of Link’s Awakening that calls out some of its…

Ah, mini-games. Be it Bombchu bowling or careening down a perilous mountainside on a shield, they provide the player with something more than in-game rewards. They’re a moment to relax and engage with the world you find yourself in. They’re also why so many wiimotes found themselves lodged in television screens. The question is, which heart-pounding mini-game would you love to play in real life? And what kinds of prizes would you like to receive for winning? Would you be…

One of the more prominent aspects of Skyward Sword was the fact that it identified the origin of many Zelda elements. The game gave explanation to the forging of the Master Sword, the heroism of a courageous boy in green, the beginnings of the kingdom of Hyrule, and the emergence of a bloodlust-centric villain. Demise’s promise to continue his hatred in multiple reincarnations not only was a haunting assurance to the hero Link, but also to the current incarnation of the…

Looking for a last-minute gift for a loved one who shares your passion for Zelda? Perhaps you want to add a little extra pizazz to go along with your gift of Link’s Awakening? Now you can create Mt. Tamaranch thanks to YouTube extraordinaire GandaKris! Sadly, the Wind Fish not included. To recreate Mt. Tamaranch, all you need is a fish tank volcano, a fake egg that fits, moss, and some acrylic paint. And if you can’t find the perfect egg,…

Hey there! Welcome back to Artists of Legend. We had delayed this week’s entry in hopes that last night’s Game Awards would have something for us to focus on today, but there weren’t really any announcements from Nintendo last night. So it’s just business as usual! We have another art challenge for those of you who are interested, and plenty more artwork to share. Now, let’s get right on into everything! Submitted Artwork Last week, we asked you to create…

Everyone was super hyped for this year’s annual Game Awards and Zelda fans were keen to see their favorite titles claim some top spots.  Nominated for Best Score/Music was Cadence of Hyrule, while Link’s Awakening contended for Best Action/Adventure Game. Sadly, these two Zelda nominations fell short in their categories, alongside many other games that didn’t quite cut it. Gaming fans across the world had high hopes for news and accolades for their favorite and highly anticipated titles, but somehow…

||  Previous Chapter || As it turned out, the tunnel was a squeeze even for me. I wasn’t afraid of tight spaces; I had hidden from Yasei many times in cramped tree trunks or under hedgerows, but the pitch black seemed to go on forever. I crawled on, dragging my satchel. The gritty soil sifted through my fingers until they met something cold. I snatched them back, licking my dry lips. Could this be the Fairy Fountain? Slowly, I flattened one…

Stretch out those hands because it’s time to get your holly jolly groove on! In honor of The Game Awards, the Nintendo eShop has discounted select titles for upwards of 50% off. Highlights include Cadence of Hyrule — nominated for Best Score & Music — which is down to $17.49 USD from its typical price of $24.99 USD. Do you already have Cadence, or simply not in a rhythm game mood? Perhaps The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim will scratch that adventuring itch for you….
