Link is almost always clothed in the iconic green tunic in Zelda games. There have been instances of him having other outfits he can wear, but Breath of the Wild gets the reward for most outfit changes in a Zelda game. The green tunic has always been iconic though, and that garment was seemingly replaced by the Champion’s Tunic in Breath of the Wild. So, will the Champion’s Tunic be replaced in Breath of the Wild 2? I like to…

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity aims to fulfill a wish I’ve had since 2017 — to mow down hordes of monsters as one of Breath of the Wild’s four Champions. As I mentioned in my previous Daily Debate, I had expected this to come in the form of a proper Hyrule Warriors sequel or expansion, not a full-blown prequel to Breath of the Wild. Indeed, it’s the pleasant surprises in life that often provide the greatest joy. And though we…

As someone who sings Hyrule Warriors’ praises at every available opportunity, I couldn’t be more thrilled about today’s unveiling of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. For as much as I wish we had experienced Breath of the Wild’s unlockable memories firsthand, I never considered the notion of that era being explored via a Warriors game. Honestly, this is why I love Nintendo, folks — you simply cannot predict these guys! There’s so much to look forward to here, not the…

Zelda fans got a surprise today when Nintendo of America announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for Nintendo Switch, which is due to release on November 20th, 2020. The game will be set 100 years before Breath of the Wild, during the onset of Calamity Ganon. It will feature Link, the Champions, and Princess Zelda as playable characters, and will be voice acted by the original Breath of the Wild cast. What’s more, it sounds as though players will be…

We are all just anxiously awaiting the sequel to Breath of the Wild to finally drop. The first game was easily one of my favorite Zelda games of all-time because it took the series to new heights; and based on the little bit of footage we got from the next one, it looks to take the series even higher. However, what’s next after the sequel? I mean, assuming Breath of the Wild 2 happens as most Zelda games do (you…

Please do not let the title fool you, I am as excited for the Breath of the Wild sequel as much as the next person. But I’ve started to wonder, have we begun to hype it up too much? Fans are desperate to hear some kind of news from Nintendo, especially regarding Breath of the Wild 2. Rumors are everywhere and I think that everyone has their own set of expectations when it comes to what they want from the…

Modern video game and film companies seem to have a difficult time deciding how to name sequels and follow ups. While some games opt for the classic chronological numbering system like The Last of Us Part 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2, other series have completely dropped their numbering systems due to the sheer catalog of series entries. For example, the Assassin’s Creed games, which famously included an entire trilogy (the Ezio Trilogy) between entries labeled “2” and “3”, have completely forsworn…

In the last chronological memory of Breath of the Wild, Princess Zelda returns the Master Sword to rest in Korok Forest until Link returns. Zelda, given the prompt by the sword itself, is determined to go to the castle alone and use her newfound sealing power to keep Calamity Ganon at bay. Before she plunges the sword into the pedestal, however, she starts to relay a message for Link to the Great Deku Tree. Zelda only manages to say, “Tell…

⁸A few months ago, I asked via a Daily Debate what everyone’s favorite thing was about their least favorite Zelda game. However, in the same way that no Zelda game is without at least one good quality, the reverse is also true. No Zelda game is absolutely perfect. While it may be your favorite, there may be one thing that you don’t particularly enjoy, or maybe even dislike. For me, my favorite Zelda game is Breath of the Wild. I…

For over 30 years, Discovery Channel’s Shark Week has been a highlight of the summer months. Celebrating both the majesty and the terror of the ocean’s apex predators, this wildly popular programming block has offered viewers a unique window into the primal world of sharks. Shark Week has been around almost as long as the Zelda series. So, in honor of this week’s sharp-toothed festivities, I set out to explore the many sharks that have existed in Hyrule and beyond….
