Category: A Link to the Past

Music is a defining feature of The Legend of Zelda series, so much so that it becomes its own character. The soundscape molds Hyrule around Link and his friends, giving character to those he interacts with and helps the player connect with them on an emotional level. The awe-striking music from The Legend of Zelda played a significant role in why I chose to pursue Bachelor’s Degree in music, and it is why I have decided to take an in-depth look at different tracks…

Everyone here has been around the block with the Zelda series a time or two, but did you know that there are some errors in the different Zelda games? The YouTube channel DidYouKnowGaming? delved into some of these mistakes. My favorite mistake mentioned is that the Thunder Helm in Breath of the Wild can be permanently lost if Link doesn’t have any armor slots left to hold it. This is one that I never knew about, but I’m certainly glad…

So this is what a post-E3 world looks like huh… Well, once you’ve picked your jaw off the floor, and rehydrated your Ganon-plants, it’s time to delve back into the world of Zelda speedrunning. What have I got in store for you this week? You’ll just have to read on and find out… Now Playing Big Zelda news this week? Nope, nothing. Not that I can think of anyway. New game? Nope, don’t think so? Look, unless there’s a HD remake of Triforce Heroes, I’m…

One of the most recognizable overworlds in the Zelda series is that of A Link to the Past. The game’s top-down view makes the world feel so much more open and just enhances the sense of adventure. Have you ever wished you could explore it in more detail? Well now you can! Youtuber BenXC, who specializes in creating worlds in the Square Enix world builders Dragon Quest Builders and Dragon Quest Builders 2, is creating the A Link to the Past world within the game. Starting with…

Award winning cosplayer, HikikoMuri recently brought our favorite princess to life in a The Legend of Zelda themed photo-shoot, with the help of photographer, Arielle Somberg.  Princess Zelda is a staple in the cosplay world, with many attempting to do her character justice over the years, and it looks as though HikikoMuri has certainly pulled it off!  The Chicago area cosplayer told us all about her passion for the Zelda series, and how one of her favorite games, A Link…

Come join us for a live stream of A Link to the Past, taking place tonight at 8pm Eastern Time. We will be streaming live on our Twitch Channel. Tonight’s stream is a special 2vs2 race of the A Link to the Past Randomizer. In this modified version of the game, keys, weapons, collectibles, and upgrades are all randomized throughout the world, located in different treasure chests than where they appear in the normal game. Additionally, this is a special…

Mini-games have been around since the start of the Zelda series. From the Money Making Game in The Legend of Zelda, to the Treasure Chest Contest in Ocarina of Time, to Chest Gambling in Breath of the Wild, every game offers minor distractions from Link’s main adventures. These experiences are usually very shallow, but they at least promise a monetary or otherwise small reward for players who participate. But the Zelda series has evolved a lot over last 30 years,…

Listening to music from the Zelda series is a way that many fans of the series show their love for it. Thankfully, there are so many different versions of each song, the music can rarely get old even if it’s the same “song” over and over again. One of the best feelings in the world, though, is hearing that music as the credits roll and as you’ve just overcome the game’s final boss. Fans of A Link to the Past…

Throughout the years, Super Smash Bros. has served as — among many other things — a celebration of the Zelda series. The first four entries in particular showed some favoritism toward particular titles. Brawl, for instance, had its share of The Wind Waker representation with Toon Link and the pirate ship stage. Music tracks and stickers, meanwhile, gave attention to other Zelda titles. However, Twilight Princess was clearly the star of the Hyrulean show, given the portrayal of Link, Zelda, and…

In popular music, the first 30 seconds of a song is said to be the most important. It’s during this period the listener decides whether they want to stick with the song any further. While this isn’t completely identical in video games (we usually already have an idea of what we’re getting ourselves into when starting a game), the title screen themes are still an important part of our initial impressions of a game. When it comes to Zelda title themes, we…
