During the development cycles of each Zelda game, a lot of ideas are often scrapped for one reason or another. With the release of art encyclopedias and concept art books, however, fans can get a first look at some of the ideas and concepts Nintendo considered incorporating into each game. The different character designs and locales are interesting, and on rare occasions the books even offer different glimpses into a character’s potential backstory. In most cases, it makes sense why…

Entering the Great Fairy Fountain for the first time in A Link to the Past is a — pardon the pun — magical moment. While this isn’t the first Zelda game to feature such an area, it is the first to introduce us to the iconic Fairy Fountain theme. This music has such a warm, calming effect on the player that they almost forget that they’re on an adventure. And that feeling is definitely evident with this rather chill cover…

What is the greatest dungeon in the Zelda series? A simple question on the surface, but one with so many layers that it makes finding an answer almost impossible. How does one define ‘great’? Is it the dungeon layout? Perhaps the ways the dungeon item is implemented into the puzzles? Or is it the bombastic boss fight at the end? Surely the music and overall aesthetic play a part? And to be honest – what does being a dungeon in…

There are hundreds of cool articles and videos about dominoes across the internet. Whether it is cats setting off dominoes or videos of wild domino contraptions, people around the world have been immensely creative when working with the tiles. Many clever creators have made domino set-ups beyond my wildest imagination. Additionally, there is a tangible excitement when someone sets off the first domino and your eyes hastily try to follow the cascade of falling pieces. This Toon Link piece by…

Secret endings are quite rare in the Zelda series, only popping up in a handful of titles. For the uninitiated, secret endings are a type of in-game reward players can receive after completing particular objectives. For example, in both versions of Link’s Awakening, the secret ending is a reward for completing the game without dying once. But are they satisfying? Any ending, secret or no, should feel rewarding to the player. A proper send off for all the time you…

A day late, but a couple bucks over value, we are here to dive into The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. You guys know how these definitive ranking series work by now – we take 10 classic categories like dungeons, overworld, art style, music, etc. – and grade a Zelda game individually on these categories. Up to bat today is The Wind Waker. In a companion piece to our friends over at the Hyrule Compendium’s own video, we tackle…

Set in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world, Toasty is an upcoming Zelda-like Action RPG “with some unique twists”. The game is being developed by Pocket Llama Studios, a team of all-stars with credentials of having formerly worked on Sonic Mania with Sega, Skullgirls by Lab Zero Games, and the Breath of the Wild-inspired The Legend’s Cookbook. The protagonist of Toasty is a Marshmallow Knight named Marshell. This unlikely Hero will embark on a quest “to stop an all-powerful evil…

I’ll be the first to admit it—I am a heinously slow gamer. Breath of the Wild took me almost two years to beat, and I only had the satisfaction of watching the end credits for A Link to the Past on the Switch two weeks ago. But, how long is too long to complete a game? While I firmly believe that there is no wrong way to enjoy games, there is an enormous amount of pressure to beat a title…
