A common theme throughout the Zelda series has been the recurrence of many main characters. Obviously Link has taken part in every main title, and there have been many reincarnations of Zelda and Ganon/Ganondorf. Sometimes we get to see other characters like Impa, Beedle, or some king of Hyrule or another. The point is clear; if there is a certain character you like from the Zelda games, there is a chance they will pop up again in a future game. So the question is,…

Here’s a fun question I thought of while marathoning the Harry Potter movies a few days ago. Which Hogwarts houses would we find our favorite hero, princess, and villain in? And what about some of the other beloved characters from the Zelda series? At first, I thought the answers would be obvious. Link in Gryffindor, Zelda in Ravenclaw, and Ganon in Slytherin. But then I started thinking about other characteristics and how they may actually not belong in the most obvious places at…

It’s a new year, and what better way to go into the new year than to keep playing Zelda? Everybody likes to take this time of year to set goals for themselves, whether it concerns things like their health, or school/career aspirations, so why not add gaming goals in there as well? When it comes to the Zelda series, have you set any goals for yourself this year? Perhaps there is a game in the series you haven’t played yet–…

Christmas has come and gone, and for those of you that celebrate it, I’m sure there were plenty of Zelda-related items on your list. Personally, one of my gift requests was the Zelda chess set and one of my brothers was awesome enough to get it for me! Otherwise I’m kind of terrible and tend to buy a lot of Zelda stuff myself, making it hard for my family to think of Zelda-themed gifts to get me. But what about you? Did you get anything Zelda-related from…

The spirit system introduced in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate seems rather overwhelming at first glance. At least I thought so when I initially started World of Light. I’ve personally never been much of a Smash player, so anything new just seemed too complex for me, especially when my first goal was to release all the fighters. While I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one who found the spirit system rather confusing, I believe that the longer I played, not only did…

With the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate came the introduction of primary and support spirits. Many of them are among some of our favorite characters from the Zelda series. In my own limited time of playing, I believe I have collected Agitha, Tingle, Fi, Cucco, Gaurdian, Marin, and Valoo. Clearly I still have some more playing to do in order to collect more, but of those, I’ve already picked Fi as my favorite support spirit to pair with my main, Sheik. Fi allows…

Whether you played it 20 years ago, or sometime within the last 20 years, Ocarina of Time may have had a significant impact on how you see games– or even just life in general– today. The 1998 release took an iconic leap not only in the Zelda franchise, but in the entire gaming industry, and I like to think we all have a story when it comes to such a beloved game. For me, while A Link to the Past…

As you all remember, during last year’s Game Awards, the  Game of the Year award — among other honors — went to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While sadly we didn’t have any Zelda releases this year to win once again, there were still plenty of awesome games released that have much to boast about, and we’ll get to see which of those will be nominated for awards next week! The nominees will be announced on Tuesday,…
