Imagine you were stranded on a deserted island, akin to Eventide Island from Breath of the Wild. There hasn’t been a sign of rescue for days and your resources are becoming scarce by the minute. Suddenly, a chest appears near your camp. It doesn’t have a Key in it, though the irony would be deafening. Instead, it contains the most important item you would want to help you on this lonely island. What’s in your chest? It’s a tough question, no? A…

Considering I didn’t experience a Zelda game myself until after I had already played the first two Super Smash Bros. titles, my fascination with the series initially stemmed from just a few characters and stages. Melee’s Great Bay, especially, captured my imagination with its mysterious iconography. Like, what was going on with that moon and those giants in the background? That said, from Brawl onward, I eagerly anticipated which Zelda locales each entry would incorporate. And though we aren’t liable…

The latest trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom may not have been out for long, but that isn’t stopping fans from already getting creative with it. From YouTube’s Jackarte comes a Nintendo 64-style “demake” of the new Tears of the Kingdom trailer. This isn’t Jackarte’s first go-round with demakes, and it shows. The graphical work certainly looks the part, but Link’s wonky movements, truly representative of a game from that era, are what really stand out. The…

Al again! Judy and I are back with even more Spirit Tracks love this week. And for this episode, we are joined by a fellow DS Zelda enthusiast, and one of the masterminds behind the Zelda Dungeon Marathon, Katherine Endicott! Today we sit down and discuss the dungeons found in Spirit Tracks and rank them definitively from not bad, to the absolute best in the game! Who knew that one train game had such great dungeons? Come hang out with…

What is happening, ZD fans? Are you ready to partake in another exciting edition of our Caption Contest? Skyward Sword‘s Ghirahim may have taken home Fall Brawl gold this afternoon, but the true champion of September — at least in the Caption Contest — has been A Link Between Worlds‘ Ravio. We’ve been celebrating this lovable goofball all month long, but, as they say, all good things must come to an end. Let’s conclude Ravio Month off in style, shall…

Welcome… to Fall Brawl! Summer is over, but don’t fret: for the third year, the Fall Brawl Character Contest is back. 2019 saw Midna take home the top prize. 2020 saw Skull Kid squeak out a thrilling last minute victory. 2021 had Sheik dominating the field. This year, the field is wide open and a NEW Champion will be crowned. The premise is simple: 64 characters enter, and in a spin on a regular NCAA-style tournament, these characters compete in matches throughout the bracket…

Like any Zelda fan, I have watched the recent trailer for Tears of the Kingdom more times than I can count, and each time I notice a new detail that hints at what we may be dealing with in the story. One thing that has boggled my mind is trying to figure out what is hanging on Link’s hip where the Sheikah Slate once was in Breath of the Wild. Now he has a sort of contraption on his hip…

Artificial intelligence programs are getting scary-good at generating artworks with varied amounts of human direction. Look no further for proof of just how skilled these tools are becoming than these posters generated by Dan Leveille using the Midjourney A.I. program. The images depict Tom Holland as Link with blue eyes, pointy ears and all. In fact, the posters are so good that they have tricked some folks across the internet into believing a Zelda movie really was in development at…

Celebrated video game music arranger and composer Rozen, who worked on music for the hit game Kena: Bridge of Spirits, has announced an upcoming project. Rozen is composing a new album featuring The Legend of Zelda. The work is called Shadows of Hyrule and will tell “the legend of the fallen hero, who is brought back to banish the shadows dwelling within the realm of lost souls.” Shadows of Hyrule is the latest in Rozen’s Hyrule series, following stellar releases like Sins of Hyrule and…

To the relief of Zelda fans the world over, Nintendo finally revealed more information on the upcoming Tears of the Kingdom. Still, little more is known about the game than what was known before this latest trailer, something which may or may not be good, depending on how you look at it. There’s an intrinsic value in not knowing a lot about a game before its release, as it creates a feeling of suspense going in, and generates countless moments of…
