Thanks to the ingenuity of Animal Crossing: New Horizons players, we’ve already seen numerous odes to the Zelda series. From the Hyrule Castle of Ocarina of Time to shareable designs, the community is on fire. While there currently aren’t any plans to give Link to the Past a proper remake, you can still explore the Dark World in 3D thanks to the AH community. So grab on to your ears, it’s time to get hopping! The video above, created by GameXplain, serves as a…

The elusive Triforce is often at the center of the struggle between light and dark. But when that shimmering golden power is floating so close you can almost taste it, do you ever wonder precisely what it would be like to give it a good lick? Well, I do. And frankly, the ultimate power might just be the ultimate candy. Pop this sucker on a stick and you’ve got yourself the greatest lollipop in existence. In my mind, it tastes…

It had been five days since the Queen of Hyrule and her daughter had arrived at Gerudo Town.  They had been sincerely welcomed and celebrated under Gerudo hospitality.  Princess Zelda had been opened up to new experiences, and the queen was pleased to see her daughter blossom.  Lady Urbosa had been a generous host, making little of everything that she done for them. “Serena, you are my oldest friend!” Urbosa exclaimed, brushing off her thanks.  “And not to mention, the…

I’ve been playing through the Legend of Zelda timeline recently, and it has helped me relive a lot of my childhood. I also realize that some things are not always as good as I remember. One particular example was my journey through Ocarina of Time. As a kid, it was everything I wanted: big, grandiose, and beautiful. After playing it again on original hardware over 20 years later, I noticed definite cracks in the facade. When I moved to versions…

One of my favorite moments in the entirety of the Zelda franchise has to be the assault on Hyrule Castle after acquiring the Master Sword in A Link to the Past. For those unfamiliar, it’s at this point in the story that Link is racing to rescue Princess Zelda from the wizard Agahnim, who intends to send her into the Dark World. It’s a great sequence to play through for sure, but what really elevates things is the score that plays…

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features an enormous cast of fighters spanning the Nintendo roster. Depending on popularity and other factors, additional series representatives have been added over the years. While I love the huge roster, I can’t help but notice how few Zelda fighters there are. Altogether, there are six Zelda representatives: Link, Young Link, Toon Link, Zelda, Sheik, and Ganondorf. With two of them being clones, we really only have four unique fighters, a number I find to be…

What can you say about the opening theme from Ocarina of Time that hasn’t been said before? It is such a soft and warm introduction to a game that many consider to be one of the greatest of all time. It perfectly complements the opening sequence of Link riding on Epona along the hillside of Hyrule Field. And the biggest key to what makes it sound so terrific is the use of piano. You can clearly hear that element in…

Fans of LEGO and Zelda might take interest in this new figure build by BrickLink on YouTube. At 772 pieces, his “display piece” uses an abundance of vibrant colors and intuitive design to recreate Link from The Wind Waker. Sturdy and with some articulation, this build could make the perfect desk topper. The instructions are available on BrickVault’s website and cost $7.99. The site lists the pieces as available at BrickLink, ranging from about $110-$125 based on the brick selling market. Will…

Today, Nintendo announced the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Event Tourney, “Triforce Tryouts,” that will utilize only fighters and stages from the Zelda series. The three-day tournament begins on Friday, May 29. Participants will earn a Zelda-related Spirit, the quality of which improves the further a player advances. Odds are many of us can hold our own as the Zelda characters in Smash Bros., so pop into the game’s Online Tourney menu this weekend to test your skills! The three-day…
