Sitting in the living room with my grandmother, I intently watched the TV with suspense as I waited to see the fate of “Freckled Zelda” on America’s Got Talent (AGT). After making it to the semi-finals of the 17th season of AGT, social media icon Freckled Zelda, aka Rachael Wilson, gave a magical performance of Limahl’s “Never Ending Story” on August 16th, combining a beautiful voice with talented ocarina playing. However, she would come to be voted off the following…

Ever since its release in 2011, Skyward Sword has been a divisive title within the Zelda series. A lot of fans loved it, some hated it. As much as the motion controls were a big contribution to this polarization, the game’s story was also a factor when it came to opinions. Some people did not like chasing after Zelda, and I definitely think that is a valid issue. Artist and YouTuber Elmushterri recently tackled rewriting Skyward Sword to fix the…

Music is as central to Zelda as any aspect of the franchise. Spooky, heroic, or atmospheric, The Legend of Zelda uses music masterfully, injecting emotion into the epic adventures taken by Link. One of the most iconic songs in the series is “Midna’s Lament,” which plays as Wolf Link races to Princess Zelda with the Imp half dead, carried on his back. Now thanks to musician and YouTube content creator Andrew, who goes by Modded Marimba, Zelda fans can enjoy a unique…

Despite having a rich legacy of inventive titles like A Link To The Past and The Minish Cap, the 2D, or top-down, side of the Zelda series has been dormant for almost a decade. The last original single-player top-down game (not a remake or remaster) was A Link Between Worlds, which released in 2013. A Link Between Worlds is an incredible game, and it has one of the most interesting new Zelda mechanics of the past decade: merging and moving…

Last week, UK and Hong Kong-based toy and collectible company First 4 Figures (F4F) announced the latest addition to their stellar The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild line: the gorgeous Link on Horseback figure. Letting fans stew with anticipation over the weekend, the company finally aired their launch stream for this new figure yesterday, which laid out measurements, pricing details, release dates, and information on the figure’s multiple editions. First 4 Figures’ “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of…

Sometimes when I play Majora’s Mask, I think about the tragic futility in Clock Town citizens fleeing to escape the crashing of the moon. Not only do I doubt they would be able to get very far, but the moon falling seems to have quite the massive range, if not destroying the entirety of the planet. So, in that situation, when you have days or maybe even hours to live, where do you go? Where do you greet the morning…

Another week has crept away with no Breath of the Wild 2 news, but fret not: we’re here to talk about a part of Breath of the Wild that we haven’t explored yet: fashion! Well, fashion, stats, practicality, etc… Yes, that’s right, we are here today to bust our best Blue Steel and critique all of Link’s outfits in Breath of the Wild! Which armor set do we have a soft spot for? Which ones are the bottom of the…

I simply adore exploring The Great Sea. Many Zelda fans have maligned The Wind Waker for its sailing, at least in the original version, but this has always been my favorite aspect of the game. I’ve always seen it as a luxurious, languid, low-intensity game where the anticipation of discovery takes a front seat ahead of the action itself. Spotting the silhouette of a landmass on the horizon, charting a course, and sailing to an obscure location is one of the best experiences the…

This is something I’ve wanted to see for a very long time. Picture this, one of the new runes you get in Breath of the Wild 2 is the Rune of Two Dimensions. It allows Link to shed his depth and transform into the 2D version of himself from earlier installments. Now before you say anything, I know. They had something similar to this in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds with Ravio’s Bracelet. That’s not quite what I…

Nintendo’s Breath of the Wild debuted on March 3rd, 2017. This historic game has been out over five years now, and we are still discovering unique nuances that the developers peppered into the game’s structure. Most recently, Redditor u/justlookingfordragon posted a detailed analysis into the mysterious Yiga imposters that are scattered across Hyrule. The Yiga imposters are secretly Yiga Clan members disguised as Hylians traversing through Hyrule whom Link may encounter on his quest to defeat Calamity Ganon. From the outset,…
