With fresh new footage of Tears of the Kingdom, I’ve been pondering what similarities the game might have with its predecessor, and what additions might be a “breath” of fresh air (see what I did there?). One thing I felt was interesting when I first played Breath of the Wild was Link’s lack of companion. In every 3D Zelda so far, Link has had a companion who has shared some of his burdens throughout his journey (Midna, Fi, Navi, Tatl,…

I’ve long thought about the amiibo we’ll get for the upcoming sequel Tears of the Kingdom. I’m curious about how amiibo will work in the game, yes, but how many amiibo we’ll get, and what they’ll be, is what really interests me. Breath of the Wild has no shortage of amiibo figures. Upon release, there was Archer Link, Rider Link, Zelda, a Bokoblin, and a Guardian. Later that year, amiibo of the four champions — Mipha, Daruk, Revali, and Urbosa…

The latest trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom may not have been out for long, but that isn’t stopping fans from already getting creative with it. From YouTube’s Jackarte comes a Nintendo 64-style “demake” of the new Tears of the Kingdom trailer. This isn’t Jackarte’s first go-round with demakes, and it shows. The graphical work certainly looks the part, but Link’s wonky movements, truly representative of a game from that era, are what really stand out. The…

Like any Zelda fan, I have watched the recent trailer for Tears of the Kingdom more times than I can count, and each time I notice a new detail that hints at what we may be dealing with in the story. One thing that has boggled my mind is trying to figure out what is hanging on Link’s hip where the Sheikah Slate once was in Breath of the Wild. Now he has a sort of contraption on his hip…

To the relief of Zelda fans the world over, Nintendo finally revealed more information on the upcoming Tears of the Kingdom. Still, little more is known about the game than what was known before this latest trailer, something which may or may not be good, depending on how you look at it. There’s an intrinsic value in not knowing a lot about a game before its release, as it creates a feeling of suspense going in, and generates countless moments of…

So many Zelda fans and content creators have spent the last six years speculating, theorizing, and analyzing the mysterious remains and monuments of the prehistoric Zonai Tribe, which are littered all across Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule. Although, not much is known about them other than that they lived thousands of years ago by the time Link is trying to take down Calamity Ganon, and many of their artifacts and statues are still located in the southern Faron region of…

The Zelda series has gone on for 3+ decades. From one generation to the next, this series has been held near and dear by so many kids of all ages (even adult-kids like myself). We’ve traveled through time. We’ve escaped to dark worlds and realms of twilight. We’ve traversed seas, flew on the backs of birds, and once, we even drove a train. It’s hard to imagine that something so loved could ever come to an end, right? But…what if this…

We finally have a title and a release date for the long awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild! Tears of the Kingdom releases May 12th 2o23 and I am so excited for it to arrive! Nintendo has been really great about releasing awesome merchandise when a new game releases; so what merchandise do you hope to see when Tears of the Kingdom releases next year? First of all, I would love to see a Tears of the Kingdom or…

It feels like it’s been an eternity since we’ve gotten news on the sequel to Breath of the Wild, and now that the drought has been eased, the Zelda fandom is in a frenzy! Although the trailer was short in the recent Direct, it has plenty to unpack, and perhaps the most interesting speculation I’ve seen is whether the focal character on the mural that the trailer opened with is Hylia, any previous character, or perhaps a new one? Hylia comes…

After years of anticipating, we finally have a name for the next installment of The Legend of Zelda. And what a name it is! My head is spinning as I ponder why Nintendo waited so long to release this title. There was much speculation that the title could give too many hints and spoilers about the story, but Tears of the Kingdom still seems a bit ambiguous. From the look of things, I don’t think anything good is happening in…
