Since late 2016, publisher VIZ Media has been releasing special “Legendary Edition” versions of Akira Himekawa’s popular The Legend of Zelda manga series. These deluxe editions — which are available for the Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Ages & Seasons, Majora’s Mask & A Link to the Past, The Minish Cap & Phantom Hourglass, and Four Swords adaptations — have featured new covers and colored art pieces by Himekawa. Fans who have not yet picked up these Legendary Editions now have…

2019 was a pretty festive year for us, as we saw the release of two Zelda games in Cadence of Hyrule and the Link’s Awakening remake. Looking ahead, there is only one certainty: Breath of the Wild 2 is coming. We don’t know how close it is– it could release any time between a few months and a few years from now– but it’s coming. Fingers crossed, its development is further along than some have speculated. In any case, this…

We’ve seen the trailer, we’ve watched and read through more theories than we care to admit, but one question has been buzzing in my brain for awhile. Will the style of art in promotional materials for Breath of the Wild 2 be different? I was flipping through Creating a Champion the other night and was just in awe all over again at the beautiful promotional art that Breath of the Wild published. If you flip through Art & Artifacts you…

Much like the “Song of Time”, “Oath To Order” plays a key story role in Majora’s Mask. Link learns this song after completing the Woodfall Temple, where he frees the first of the Four Giants. Ultimately, the ocarina song has only one purpose: to summon the Four Giants to Clock Town before the moon crashes into it. The entire song has a sadness that perfectly fits the dark world of Termina. There is a beauty in the song, but the…

Hello and welcome back to another week of your favorite Zelda podcast. This week, we chat about Nintendo’s Mini Direct, what games they announced that we’re looking forward too, if we were satisfied with all the announcements, and more before shifting our ficus to the 3DS and remembering what a great system it was for Zelda games and for great video games in general! Come hangout with us, and get ready for a slew of Majora’s Mask content to come…

Ocarina of Time brings up many great memories for me. It was the first game I ever preordered after following months of coverage in various magazines. My 1.0 version, gold cart still sits proudly on my gaming shelf, and the memories live forever. Some of my fondest memories came from the expertly-composed soundtrack from the legend, Koji Kondo. Clearly, I wasn’t the only one with these memories, and in 2017, a Kickstarter campaign was launched for Hero of Time, an…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought a plethora of new customization options to the franchise. You can move buildings, build bridges, and climb to new heights! And let’s not forget custom designs. The QR Code system is back with the ability to import designs from New Leaf. With all these wonderful options, you could recreate your favorite Zelda locations! Special Zelda furniture items are sure to make a comeback too. Imagine, creating your very own Outset Island or Kakariko Village! Or, on…

Hey there, all you lovely people! How does a Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest sound to help you pass the time while social distancing? I didn’t need to search too long for a suitable image for this week’s contest, as ZD’s stellar social media team recently posted an image of a certain character from Majora’s Mask to which all those withstanding the coronavirus can relate. This character is desperate for some paper, but it would seem that such paper is at…

One of the most enduring aspects of Link’s Awakening‘s legacy is undoubtedly its music. Equal parts familiar and eccentric, it’s definitely unique among other soundtracks of the franchise. It’s also ripe for incredibly talented individuals like Robin Appelqvist to examine and put their own creative twist on its well-known pieces. Channeling the legendary Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi, Robin has taken “Mabe Village” and re-imagined it as a poignant, piano-laden arrangement. It’s incredibly calming, and I’d urge anyone that enjoys the…

Imagine entering a quaint tavern during a rough journey. Immediately, your muscles relax as you’re greeted with comforts of home. There’s a pot bubbling on the stove, the aroma of freshly baked bread, and plenty of ice-cold milk. Good food brings joy and comfort to the darkest of times. Many of us are taking far shorter journeys, but the comfort of food is just as necessary. Thankfully, there are plenty of Zelda-inspired recipes! Feeling creative? You can craft your own…
