Category: A Link Between Worlds

If you ever lie awake at night, pondering about moments from your distant or even recent past that you wish you could change or do over, then you are in good company, because I often do the same. And usually the do-overs I focus on aren’t even about significant events in my life, but more about the small ones, like wishing I could take back words I said in an argument with someone I love, wishing I would have put…

Sometimes as a Zelda lover, I feel like I am in a perpetually unending cycle with Nintendo that consists of me buying Zelda games as soon as they release, and then a few years later, being forced to buy them again when they are rereleased in glorified HD on the newest system. But strangely I’m okay with that. With that being said, as much as I have loved remasters of some of my favorite games like Skyward Sword, The Wind Waker, and the adorable…

Besides our favorite green-clad hero and regal princess, the Zelda series is filled to the brim with memorable characters–some adorable, some with heart-breaking stories, some with epic development arcs, and some who are just plain weird (looking at you, Tingle). But one thing is usually certain, when you play through an adventure with Link and grow to love the characters in that version of Hyrule, it’s likely you’ll never see them again outside of that specific game. There are some exceptions to…

Happy Halloween Zelda fans! Get into the spooky mode by celebrating some of the scariest and creepiest dungeons and areas in the Zelda series. We are definitively ranking them to figure out what is the absolute creepiest of them all. From heavy hitters like the Shadow Temple and Arbiters Grounds to lessor known dungeons like Phantom Hourglass’s Ghost Ship or Oracle of Seasons’ Explorer’s Crypt, all the way back to area’s with creepy vibes like Ikana Castle or The Minish…

Ganon is one of the most iconic villains in video game history, but  the character has been quite a chameleon over the decades. Unlike fellow Nintendo antagonist Bowser, the Great King of Evil has taken vastly different forms throughout his glorious and destructive history. Ganon’s first appearance on NES was as a monstrous porcine beast, but the antagonist has morphed from bestial to humanoid depending on the game. While Ganon’s human form (often referred to as Ganondorf) has become very…

Every Zelda fan has a favorite game in the series, and often those favorites are listed in the top tiers of best-selling lists even outside of the Nintendo brand. Understandably, as groundbreaking as Ocarina of Time, Breath of the Wild, and other 3-D titles were in the gaming industry, it’s no wonder that major releases in the series like those are common favorites among long-time and newer fanatics. But with 19 official titles in the series as of 2021, many games are…

With the announcement of a Nintendo Direct taking place tomorrow, it’s only natural that to imagine what exciting content we might like to see. As Zelda fans, one of those things is very likely the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. What else might we like to see, though? I would love to see a Zelda character revealed as the next fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A port or remake of Four Swords Adventures would also be quite the…

While the titular princess of The Legend of Zelda has seen a plethora of design alterations over the years, Link has been garbed in a remarkably consistent manner. It makes sense for the sole playable protagonist of such a long-running franchise to be instantly recognizable, and clothing can be a key aspect of that visual influence. While occasionally named differently, Link’s green tunic, leather boots, and flowing cap are as iconic as Mario’s overalls. This is by far Link’s most commonly…

Have you ever had the suspicion that someone has been watching you? Well, Link certainly has. This fun little animation by Jake Doubleyoo investigates the economic complexity that the Hero of Hyrule experiences during the events of A Link Between Worlds. Fortunately for the adventurous lad, he has eyes in the back of his head and quickly catches on that all is not right. But will Link manage to thwart his pursuer’s malicious designs? Probably not. Rupees need to get…

As of the current state of the Zelda series, Hyrule is a land trapped in repetition. Villains such as Ganon or Vaati routinely return from beyond the grave and wreak havoc on the populace. The only bulwark against imminent destruction comes in the form of a singular chosen hero. This lone warrior must bear the burden of saving all that is good in the land from encroaching evil. That being said, it does seem rather odd that the people of…
