The Master Cycle Zero may have been a shock when initially announced for The Champions’ Ballad, but Breath of the Wild‘s second DLC pack wasn’t actually the first time Link sat in the seat of rip-roaring motorcycle. Back in 2014, the original Master Cycle appeared alongside our favorite hero in a crossover DLC pack for Mario Kart 8. Well, with the latest model making its debut in The Champions’ Ballad late last year, the Master Cycle Zero and Breath of the Wild…

Now, it’s not clear for every Zelda game how old Link is, but he tends to be portrayed either very young or in his teens. I could see for some games even arguing he’s in his early twenties.  Regardless, no matter what, he’s usually rather young, and already quite the fighter. But who’s to say he always needs to be shown that way? What if Link was middle aged, and quite the experienced knight? A General, perhaps, or a family man…

Youtuber Edible Incredible recently released a video theorizing the potential outcomes of Ganondorf’s wish, had it not been interrupted during the Era of the Great Sea. The theorist begins by discussing whether Ganondorf would have made the decision to change between his beast form and human form, or whether his obtaining the complete Triforce would have caused him to remain in the form of Ganon. Edible Incredible describes how in Ocarina of Time, Ganondorf used the Triforce of Power to become Ganon…

If you’re a fan of The Legend of Zelda series, then you should know all about Tingle, the thirty five-year-old man who is obsessed with forest fairies. Tingle has become somewhat of a staple in the Zelda franchise, so much so, that Nintendo actually decided to feature him in his very own game: Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland. The game’s developer Vanpool partnered with Nintendo on a few Tingle spin-off titles before moving on to different projects, but you’d be surprised to learn that the…

Ganondorf. You know him. You’ve fought him. Constantly portrayed as the King of Thieves, the Dark Lord, so many monikers instilling fear, and you may have even come to love him as such. Trademarked by the Triforce of Power and that deep rumbling laugh that lets Link know he’s in for a fight of the ages, Ganondorf is one of the most iconic characters of the Zelda series. Yet he’s always been the enemy, and the one we know, in the end,…

Over the course of this four part series, Mases and Gooey will discuss and rank all of the single player games in the main Legend of Zelda series. Each episode we will pick four games at random and we must come to an agreement on where it will be placed on our list! In this episode we discuss Ocarina of Time, The Minish Cap, Breath of the Wild, and Skyward Sword. What do you think of our list? How would you have ranked these games?…

I finally bought a Nintendo Switch last week, and one thing I noticed right away is that Switch cartridges are tiny. A cartridge case is a must if one wants to avoid repeatedly returning the games to their cases or misplacing uncased ones. Luckily, Etsy shop owner kDaesign crafted the perfect Zelda-inspired game case: a functional 3D-printed Master Sword and sheath with six cartridge slots. Before ordering or printing one, see it in action in this Kickass 3D Prints video….

Throughout the Zelda games, Link has had the opportunity to don outfits of different colors and and styles, allowing the player to enjoy the various benefits and in some instances, negative effects that can influence the hero’s adventures in Hyrule. There are armor sets, like the Magic Armor from Twilight Princess, which makes the wearer invulnerable while draining rupees from their wallet, and tunics from Ocarina of Time that provide heat resistance and the ability to breathe under water. There is mail from A…

Last month, Dark Horse Comics announced the November 20th release date of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild — Creating a Champion, an extensive art book celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Zelda franchise and the release of Breath of the Wild. A localized version of Breath of the Wild Master Works, which released in Japan last year, the book will feature tons of concept art and developer insights from the latest Zelda title. Beyond the standard edition…

Super Smash Bros. Melee has a special place in my heart as the first video game I ever played with my brother. With Zelda and Sheik as my main fighters, I remember spending countless hours fighting my way through Adventure Mode, challenging my brother and friends to Tournament matches, and most importantly, collecting trophies. By the time I got around to really playing the game, my brother had already collected nearly all of the trophies, making my attempts to collect…
