Happy October 1st, everyone! If you’ve been in the Zelda community long enough, you’ve likely heard about a little art challenge that happens in the month of October called Linktober. Linktober has been around for a number of years, and it is loved by many in the community, myself included. Linktober’s creator, Joel Siegal, has curated two different challenge calendars this year for artists to participate in. All forms of art are accepted, and any level of artist is welcome…

We finally have a title and a release date for the long awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild! Tears of the Kingdom releases May 12th 2o23 and I am so excited for it to arrive! Nintendo has been really great about releasing awesome merchandise when a new game releases; so what merchandise do you hope to see when Tears of the Kingdom releases next year? First of all, I would love to see a Tears of the Kingdom or…

Tunic, a Zelda-like action-adventure title developed by Andrew Shouldice and published by Finji, is coming to Nintendo Switch on September 27th! What’s even better: you can preorder Tunic today via Nintendo Switch shop. Tunic is an adorable 3D, top-down-style adventure game starring a fox with an outfit that looks like our favorite hero, Link! I personally have been playing Tunic for some time now, and seeing this game come to Switch makes me super excited for those who have not…

New missions and rewards have arrived for the month of September for Nintendo Switch Online members. September’s four waves of rewards are based upon the classic Nintendo Entertainment System, and Wave 2’s Icon Elements feature popular sprites and characters from The Legend of Zelda! If you’ve been collecting Icon Elements for a while, you are likely already familiar with how to complete missions and gain rewards. Though if you’re unfamiliar, you can complete missions if you have Nintendo Switch Online…

Throughout time, the world has been gifted with amazing masterpieces. Buildings, statues, paintings — some of these works have been preserved for generations and have inspired more to come. Think of Michelangelo’s statue of David, Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, and Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.  As an artist myself, I find myself drawn to the old masters for inspiration and I’m often in awe of those who have come before me. I am not the only one inspired by…

I personally have been wanting to put together a Zelda cosplay for a very long time. I have always felt like I did not have the time or talent to put something so elaborate together, but recently I had a change of heart (and my husband bought a 3D printer.) I know that there are a lot of Zelda cosplayers in the community so whether you’re a seasoned cosplayer or someone with a dream, what Zelda character would you like…

The Legend of Zelda has touched multiple generations, and it’s always a treat to see how loved the series has become. In this touching fan-made commercial we see how The Legend of Zelda can take us from its humble beginnings, playing on our TVs in our living rooms and off on a grand adventure into the unknown, and how growing up doesn’t mean we have to give up the things that we love. In A Link to the Future, creator…

The map of Hyrule has changed a lot over the years and it’s ever evolving as the series progresses into new generations. There are a few iconic elements of Hyrule that have remained consistent across multiple games. Hyrule Castle, Castle Town, The Temple of Time, Death Mountain and Zora’s Domain are a few that come to mind immediately, but what about the locations that have only appeared in one game? Today I want to know, what is your favorite location…

Over the last five years man fans of the Zelda series and Breath of the Wild have found a lot of things to love and a lot of things to hate about the now iconic game. Personally I did not find a lot of fault in Breath of the Wild, I found a lot of things that I hoped that they would build on in the sequel but those are thoughts for another debate post. What I want to know…

The Legend of Zelda has been around for quite some time, and believe it or not there are a lot of people out there who have never played a game in the series. Maybe they never had the opportunity, or maybe they have been too young to play it for now. I have a friend who’s husband sat her down to play A Link to the Past as her first introduction to the Zelda series. She had never played anything…
