I love coming across relaxing instrumental covers of my favorite video game music. I sometimes use it to unwind after a long day, it’s also not uncommon for me to pop in my earbuds during my day to get a little bit of escapism out of the music. While listening to this piano and flute cover of “Ballad of the Windfish” performed by cover artist MusicMike512, featuring Madalyn Music, I knew this would fit perfectly into my rotation of video…

Conceptually, the Yiga Clan is really interesting. The idea of the Sheikah having a schism, and the portion deciding to split off pledging themselves to help Calamity Ganon feels like it should lend itself to a lot of interesting plot points. Naturally I was really excited to see what role they would play in the greater scheme of Breath of the Wild when I was doing my first playthrough of the game. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed because they did…

June is right around the corner, and although E3 has been canceled this year, most of us are probably still anticipating a Nintendo Direct. If all goes as usual, it would be the perfect opportunity to finally do a full showcase of the sequel to Breath of the Wild. Give us the subtitle, show some in depth gameplay, and let us get details on the story! Last year after the short E3 trailer for the game, I started speculating what…

The Zelda series is celebrating 36 years currently! We know so much already about various games and guides that have released in this timeframe, yet much still remains shrouded in mystery. Bit by bit, our friend Melora, who runs History of Hyrule, is archiving rare Zelda guidebooks, magazines, and manga digests that are no longer in print. Her most recent archival endeavor was to find and scan the Japanese version of the guidebook for The Legend of Zelda, known in…

During this event, Ubaldi talked briefly with Emanuele Baserga of Lega Hyrule, an Italian Zelda fan community.

I know, I know, “who uses postcards anymore”, right? Well I’m sure plenty of people out there do, and if not, come on, these Koholint Island postcards from StephologyShop over on Etsy are pretty dang cool! The artwork is awesome, and it would be nice to send these out to family or friends over the holidays or for a special occassion. It would also be worthwhile to simply have one to put on display. The seller is from Canada, so…

Do you have some wall space you’d like to fill with some awesome artwork? Have no fear, I may be able to lead you in the right direction! Fanartist Mimimaru has added some unique new Zelda-inspired prints to her Etsy shop! Earlier in the year she began creating landscape paintings of areas around Breath of the Wild, she dubbed these series of prints “Memories of the Wild”. The third and newest addition to this series include landscapes capturing Hyrule Castle…

Have you ever just been sitting there thinking about Tingle, wondering what his deal is? Of course you have, because Tingle is amazing! You probably went web surfing, saw some strange Tingle fan art, but couldn’t easily find any theorizing on Tingle. Maybe with persistence you turned up the works of Tingle Believer69, a long-time member of Zelda communities who is a bit of an enigma. From what little we know, Tingle Believer69 has spent a majority of his life…

Fairies in The Legend of Zelda are very unique characters whose personalities have evolved greatly with each installment. In the past, you could say they were helpful beings, wanting nothing in return. Link could enter a fountain and gain a new item, magical ability, or health / magic restoration free of charge. Things have changed a bit with Breath of the Wild, as Great Fairies now charge multiple hundreds of Rupees to enhance armor sets (the days of free rewards…

Hyper Light Drifter was a phenomenal Zelda-like indie-game release by Heart Machine in 2016. Earlier today the next installment of the series was announced, titled Hyper Light Breaker, slated for a Steam early access release of Spring 2023! Hyper Light Breaker will be a 3D game revolving around multiplayer, but will still be compatible with solo play. Notably, while the game is set in the same universe as Hyper Light Drifter, it is not a sequel: “Enter the Overgrowth, a…
