Nintendo recently announced that a Tears of the Kingdom Master Works book will be coming to Japan on August 30th, 2024. This 464-page A4 hardcover book already has fans excited, with the prospect of artwork, storyboards, and design concepts from Tears of the Kingdom, as well as comments from the game’s developers. However, at the time of this writing, the collectible has only been announced for Japan; thus, the preview pages shown off by Nintendo have only been available in…

When sticker and fan merch websites like Redbubble first became popular, you could tell a person’s favorite memes and jokes just by looking at their water bottle. It was easy to find even niche references to slap onto your belongings on the cheap, back when the marketplace for these things was wild and free. In college, my laptop was covered in Undertale scenes and various stand-up one-liners about being an English major. As many fan artists and sticker lovers know,…

Happy birthday, Tears of the Kingdom! It’s been a delightful year experiencing its story, and it made me nostalgic for some of the game’s quirky side quests. When you first enter Hateno, players immediately witness a town, divided. Citizens don mushroom hats and dresses, while others seem unenthused. Someone has opened a new shop, and it threatens the town’s peaceful way of life. For better or worse, Link had to get involved. Suddenly, he was responsible for ironing out political…

What is happening, Zelda fans?! Are you ready to start the week off with another ZD Caption Contest? After over a year of exclusively Tears of the Kingdom screenshots, it’s finally time for the contest to once again feature some other types of images. There are over 20 other Zelda games out there, not to mention all the left-field Zelda images we can pull out of our hat. In fact, let’s take a look at one such photo in this…

We’re back this week continuing the discussion around Tears of the Kingdom, except this time, we’re comparing and contrasting it to three other direct sequels in the Zelda franchise: Majora’s Mask, Phantom Hourglass, and A Link Between Worlds! We go over what makes a game a direct sequel in our eyes, how each game changed up the gameplay from its predecessors, if there was enough new content to make the sequel feel distinct, and so much more! We’re also covering…

With Breath of the Wild‘s version of Zelda having appeared in three different games showcasing her fantastic character arc, she has now become my favorite incarnation of the Princess of Hyrule. Recently, I have been revisiting the start of her story in Breath of the Wild and it’s been fascinating to see how far she has come when compared to her future self in Tears of the Kingdom. However, something that I have always wondered about is this powerful princess’…

In commemoration of Tears of the Kingdom‘s one-year anniversary, Nintendo of America has announced via a post on X that they will be rolling out Tears of the Kingdom icons for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. These icons, some of which were made available earlier this year, feature the characters Link, Zelda, King Rauru, Queen Sonia, Ganondorf, and a Korok, as well as a variety of elements such as borders and backgrounds. This comes following the release of A Link to…

Having just replayed Breath of the Wild, I have to say that the Champions’ abilities are generally much better than those of Tears of the Kingdom’s Sages. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Tulin’s Gust ability, and his skill with a bow and arrow. However, would I choose that over Revali’s Gale? I missed being able to do a turbo-charged jump to get to high places. I know when I was in the Muctorok fight, I gave up trying to…

LEGO has dashed the hopes of Zelda fans multiple times. A Breath of the Wild set from its community-based voting platform, LEGO Ideas, made it to the review stage but unfortunately, it never became a reality. In fact, LEGO stopped accepting Zelda submissions in 2022 because of licensing conflicts.  Because LEGO has yet to address the supposedly leaked Deku Tree set, fans have resorted to drafting MOCs (My Own Creations) of their dream Zelda sets. Content creator and LEGO fan…
