First appearing in Breath of the Wild, the Champion’s Tunic was a distinct move away from Link’s traditional green outfits seen in all prior games. In the book Creating a Champion, Zelda Series Producer Eiji Aonuma said, “The iconic green tunic and hat had become expected, so we wanted to mix things up and update his look. Interestingly though, nobody on the team said, ‘Let’s make him blue!’ It just organically happened that way.” After some early sketches, blue became…

To the surprise of many a Zelda fan, Nintendo recently announced an online The Legend of Zelda Orchestra Concert for February 9th at 5 AM Pacific Time on Nintendo’s YouTube channels. This was quite shocking, as there’s been nary a word of Zelda‘s orchestral return since the last concert in 2018, save for one appearance in 2023. Since 2018, two major installments have made their way into the Zelda franchise, namely Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and The Legend of…

I remember seeing the first Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity announcement in the September 2020 Nintendo Direct. Pairing the Hyrule Warriors formula with the war leading up to the Great Calamity seemed like a match made in heaven. I was excited to experience the events that caused the ruin of Hyrule, as seen in Breath of the Wild. Witnessing the personal interactions between Breath of the Wild‘s Champions and their synergy in combat was an intriguing prospect that could only…

Music is an essential aspect of video games. Much like a movie’s soundtrack, good video game music enhances the player experience. It lets us know if a dilapidated building is supposed to be sad or spooky.  The Legend of Zelda series is certainly no exception. There’s everything from sweeping ballads to quiet, contemplative pieces that provide just the right amount of atmosphere. What sets the Zelda series apart is that Link often plays an instrument that serves some kind of purpose…

Back in the year 2020, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was billed as an opportunity to “see Hyrule 100 years before the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game and experience the events of the Great Calamity.” That description turned out to be only partially true, as Koei Tecmo used the established backstory of Breath of the Wild as merely a springboard for an unpredictable tale of twists, time travel, and retcons. Reception to the story decisions was mixed, and…

The Koroks we first met in The Wind Waker have come a long way since their more recent Zelda appearances: for better and for worse. Regardless on whether or not you want to strap a Zonai rocket to a Korok’s back, these memorable creatures can now be yours as they can hold on to something aside from a simple seed. This new Korok comes to us from Etsy merchant DiDiSensei as they are selling a 3D-printed Korok Statue Pencil Holder. The…

Tamagotchi, those cute, digital creatures that took children by storm in the late 90s and early 2000s — what if there was one for Zelda? For those who don’t know, Tamagotchi are interactive virtual pets that “live” inside a little device, small enough to carry on your keychain. Like a real pet, they require attention and nourishment, or they’ll die. Take care of them, though, and you’ll unlock new ways to play with them as your bond strengthens. Nowadays, there…

In a recent tweet from Japanese toy manufacturer Bandai’s Tamashii Nations division, it was revealed that the one and only Master Sword would be brought to life through their Proplica collectors line.

The version of the Master Sword being used for the…
