Everybody started somewhere their first journey in the Zelda series. For some, they were told by an old man in a cave that it would be dangerous to go alone without a sword. For others, they ventured inside a dying massive tree who wanted to test them to see if they were ready to save Hyrule. The Great Deku Tree’s massive innards are where we start in Ocarina of Time, and as this piano cover demonstrates, it is an eerie start indeed….

The Fairy Fountain theme is one of the most common tracks found in the Zelda series, appearing in most titles’ file select screens, and of course within Fairy Fountains themselves. First appearing in A Link to the Past (well, there were technically Fairy Fountains in The Legend of Zelda, but they weren’t officially named), the sound quality has progressed considerably throughout the years, but some miss the nostalgic tone found in the SNES game. That’s where music technician GLASYS comes in. With brand new…

During a recent live stream, developer Suda 51 announced that more Zelda t-shirts will be added to his newest title Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Grasshopper Manufacturer will be releasing two brand new t-shirts for Travis Touchdown to wear based on The Wind Waker. The first t-shirt’s design is based on the original artwork from the GameCube version of the game, and the second one is based on the artwork from the Wii U version of the game. Our pals over…

News broke recently that officials in the province of Guandong have permitted investment conglomerate Tencent to distribute Nintendo Switch consoles throughout China. The consoles will reportedly feature a special “test version” of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. Last year, former President of Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima did mention the company was looking into making the Switch available in China. Some had expected that Nintendo would partner with Tencent to achieve this after collaborating to release Arena of Valor overseas on…

The Zelda fandom all over the world dreams of different ways, even different places that they can pit our hero Link. Maybe a military shooter where Link wields an assault rifle? Or perhaps even a science fiction game where all of Hyrule is at war in the year 2209? Whatever the case, there are always different kinds of genres we want to be added to the series. Take the artists we’re looking at today, for example, who decided to flip…

Hello again! Welcome back to Artists of Legend! No matter what’s going on in your life right now, I hope that this series is able to be an enjoyable part of things for you. Now, let’s get to the featured artwork and artistic prompt that make this series what it is, shall we? Submitted Artwork Last week, we asked you to create artwork of some sort of pet from the Zelda series. We have only one submission this week, but we also…

Throughout its long and twisting history, The Legend of Zelda series has had a somewhat bumpy relationship with magic spells. Ocarina of Time featured three. Farore’s Wind, Din’s Fire, and Nayru’s Love, all designed as obtainable items. Compare this to a more recent title such as Skyward Sword, and you’ll notice a distinct lack of magic spells. Should spells and magic be brought back in a future Zelda title, and if so, what could they do? Of course, we could go down paths well traveled and…

Zelda Warfare is our series in which Mases and Gooey race Link’s Awakening DX on hero mode in segmented sections. Each episode, or campaign, is worth a point. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game has won the war!  In our newest campaign, we’ve got a ton of collection to do! We travel all across the map and gather some secret seashells as we make our way to Key Cavern. Let us know who you are…

Recent reports — that have been neither confirmed nor denied by Nintendo — have pointed to two new Switch models, such as a smaller version of the system, currently being worked on and set to be unveiled as early as this summer. And now a recent report coming from Japanese newspaper Nikkei is continuing to fuel speculation for new Switch models hitting the market soon. Nikkei is reporting that Nintendo will be releasing a smaller and cheaper Switch model this…

33 years is a very long time for a video game series to still be thriving. Since the first Zelda game was released in 1986, we’ve had 16 more canon games. Even after all those games, the protagonist of the series, Link, has mainly remained a mute character. It feels as if Nintendo wants to avoid pushing Link firmly into any one direction. He’s given somewhat of a personality through non-verbal expressions in some games, and lately he does feel…
