With the upcoming releases of Cadence of Hyrule and the remake of Link’s Awakening, every Zelda fan around has been in a very nostalgia-fueled kick. The remixed music from Cadence of Hyrule and the remastered score of Link’s Awakening has people craving more. So to wet your appetite a bit, we have a remix that’s probably right up your alley. The remix we’re looking at today is of the Tal Tal Heights theme, which is produced by Vector U, in…

There are a lot of cool tricks you can pull off in all of the Zelda games if you know what glitches do what exactly. This is a key component in the art of speedrunning. Whether you agree with it or not, there are those times where you just can’t help but to wonder how such skilled gamers pulled it off. One such Zelda speedrunner in the video we’re looking at today shows you how to perform some glitches in…

When originally playing through Link’s Awakening, I wonder how many people reacted the way I did when I found out what exactly the Wind Fish was. I don’t think I ever would have guessed it was going to be a huge egg-based whale deity that comes with a really good score. “The Ballad of the Wind Fish” is easily one of the best scores that Link’s Awakening has to offer, and just hearing it done in a more orchestral style…

For those who don’t know who these folks are, they’re a collection of people who love nerd music and who help deliver concerts dedicated to that genre. This time, it’s their annual event that celebrates all of nerd music, Orlando Overdrive. Here is their official press release in regards to Orlando Overdrive IV: Press Release: Ongaku…

The Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game of all-time. This is something I have said on a very consistent basis when it comes to talking about this game. So far be it from me that something as simple as a what-if concept video gets me excited for a game I already love. The folks over at Nintendo Wire have come out with yet another “De-Make” of a classic Zelda game. They have done consistently amazing work that makes you wish…

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….

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…

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…

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…

It’s hard to argue with anybody in discussing where The Adventure of Link places on everyone’s all-time best Zelda list. It’s most likely on the bottom of some, but one universally praised aspect of the game is its music. One of the most well-known songs (thanks in part to Super Smash Bros. Melee) from this title is, of course, the Palace Theme. The cover artist we’re looking at today agrees and has greatly increased the rock levels of this beloved…
