The land of Hyrule faced a terrifying disaster known as Calamity Ganon 100 years prior to the start of Breath of the Wild. In a song of legend sung to us by Kass, we learn that the Calamity had been a problem that plagued the land over 10,000 years before, and had been predicted to appear again. As we play through the events of Breath of the Wild we learn the tale of Link’s lost memories from 100 years ago….

We see Zelda use the power of the Triforce in Breath of the Wild when the time came to seal Calamity Ganon away for 100 years. The Triforce has typically played a pivotal part in Zelda games, but it only briefly appears in Breath of the Wild, and isn’t even mentioned once. I don’t have any idea why, but I would like to think that the Triforce will play a larger part in the Breath of the Wild sequel, and…

Theories have been swirling like the green text from the trailer of Breath of the Wild 2, and I’m here to submit a new one. Did the Ancient Sheikah seal Ganondorf? We know that Ganondorf is the source of the malice pouring from his decaying body, but the big question is, “How did he get there?” Upon analysis of the trailer and pictures of the body, it’s obvious that Ganondorf has been mummified. The mummification looks very much like the…

Shortly after Breath of the Wild 2’s unveiling at E3 2019, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma expressed his desire to “revisit that Hyrule again and use that world again.” Now, to be fair, we don’t know the extent to which this will be the case. For all we know, the game could take place in Hyrule for the first two hours, only to whisk us away to a brand new locale for the rest of the adventure. Based on Aonuma’s…

Fan appreciation for the Zelda series comes in many forms, ranging from drawings to detailed sculptures. In this rendition of Princess Zelda sporting her new hair style from Breath of the Wild‘s currently in-development sequel, talented sculptor YanSculpts brings the sculpture to life in this incredibly detailed, 3D rendering completed with a tablet and stylus pen. As a nice touch, the video is edited in time with the music, adding a sort of whimsical and fun aspect to the process….

My favorite part of an incipient Zelda game is the initial period of speculation. I was genuinely surprised that Nintendo capped off their E3 Direct this year with a trailer for the sequel to Breath of the Wild. As I was taking part in the initial speculation that it spawned, an interesting theory I witnessed gaining traction was that Demise might make a return in this game. It’s certainly an intriguing thought, but I don’t think it will happen. Despite…

WOOOW, it feels like forever since Taylor and I have done a show together, but we are reunited to take you on a nice breezy stroll this week covering a bunch of random Zelda news and tidbits. Nintendo’s class action lawsuit, a potential CD-i package, full Zelda Dungeon Marathon recaps, Andy’s growing Zelda Etsy addiction, Ocarina of Time speedrun records, infinite Korok seeds and riding as Sidon, and early Fire Emblem: Three Houses impressions! Come hang out with us as…

There has been no shortage of speculation and wishes concerning the upcoming sequel to Breath of the Wild. Because of the mixed reaction from the Legend of Zelda community to the Divine Beasts replacing traditional dungeons, one thing on everyone’s mind is what form dungeons will take in the next game. In our newest entry into our Youtube discussion series, Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I shared some dungeon concepts and locations we’d like to see return to the series, and…

When Breath of the Wild was announced at E3 2014, Producer Eiji Aonuma made his intentions for the game abundantly clear — to create a vast, interconnected world in which individual areas had no clearly defined entrance or exit. Upon its release in 2017, the world that was showcased in that trailer may not have looked exactly the same, but overall, that first impression was definitely in line with the spirit of the finished product. Conversely, Breath of the Wild…

Although Nintendo has yet to confirm the identity of the now-infamous corpse in Breath of the Wild 2’s announcement trailer, all signs point to this being the Gerudo King himself, Ganondorf. If so — and if the first Breath of the Wild’s approach to voice acting is any indication — then this game will likely mark the first appearance of a fully-voiced Ganondorf. I don’t know about you, but just the idea of that has me bouncing up and down…
