Breath of the Wild introduced us to an entirely new weapon system that no other Zelda game has ever seen. Though it came as a major disappointment and inconvenience to many, the introduction of different breakable weapons set Breath of the Wild apart from all other Zelda games. With Breath of the Wild 2 on the horizon it makes one wonder if new weapon types and classes will be introduced to the game. I really hope that there are new…

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. The story of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has been… controversial, to put it bluntly. Promising “a new story set 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” this Zelda spinoff generated quite a bit of buzz within the Zelda community, as fans’ imaginations ran wild with speculation about experiencing the tragedy of the Calamity first-hand. Which story elements from Breath of the Wild‘s memories will…

Every time a new mainline Zelda title appears, we have a certain set of expectations. We will control a character named Link. We will spelunk through numerous dungeons, delve into the wild, find a really cool sword, and save Hyrule from an evil man named Ganondorf. Along with that basic premise, we also have certain expectations of the main character’s backstories, character design, and game mechanics. Because Ganondorf has only ever been a Gerudo, we automatically know certain things about…

|| Previous Chapter || Next Chapter || Chapter Eleven Link’s eyes began to flicker as his senses returned to him. He lay still for a bit, examining his surroundings as best as his field of view would allow. He gathered his strength, pushed himself up, and brought himself to a sitting position. Every muscle in his body was in agony. The trek through the desert had begun to take its toll. He wasn’t immobilized by any means, but there would surely…

It can be quite trying to wait for a game to be released, especially after it has been announced. We can’t wait to experience for ourselves the new interpretations of a franchise, what traditions will be kept and yet what new and exciting things will stir it up into something invigorating. However, it’s good to keep in mind that games that take long periods of development prior to public release do so in order to ensure quality. Nintendo in particular…

It’s a new year, and a new challenge awaits Mases and Gooey in another installment of Twilight Princess Zelda Warfare. After another roll at Rollgoal last episode, this chilly January sets them in the equally chilly Peak Province region for a much more traditional challenge: who can get to Snowpeak Ruins first? Both contenders began at the first moment you enter the province just before meeting Ashei in search for the mysterious Yeti plaguing Zora’s Domain. With sketch in hand,…

The Legend of Zelda series has always revolved around three main characters – Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf (or Ganon.) The player classically plays as Link, the hero, and is typically the main character of any Zelda game. With the series turning 35 this year it begs the question would the series ever evolved to where Link was not the main character anymore, or became the secondary character? Honestly it would be odd to see another hero besides Link set off…

Ilia occupies a strange place in Twilight Princess‘ narrative. In the first few hours of the game, Ilia seems to be an important part of the community within Ordon Village, and she seems to have a special connection with Link. Unfortunately, as the game enters its second half, Ilia’s role in the story is greatly reduced. By the time the writers and designers of Twilight Princess bring her story to a close, many players have already moved on from the…

With almost two weeks of 2021 under our belts, it’s possible a lot of us who made resolutions have already broken them (or haven’t set out to accomplish them yet!). And while we don’t always get a perfect read on Link’s personality, I wonder whether he would join those of us who have already fallen short of their self-improvement goals. We know that Link is prone to being sleepy, quiet, and generally crafty. So how well would he fair when…
