Chapter Four “What do you mean our supplies aren’t coming through?” “It’s just as I said, Your Grace. We haven’t received shipment for any of the stone we requested from the Goron’s for the last week or so.” The messenger knelt before the throne, glancing nervously at Zelda. She sighed, rubbing her left temple with the pad of her thumb, a frown pulling at her mouth. She struggled to reign in her frustration. Why hadn’t they received the shipment? And…

While some might disagree, Breath of the Wild stands as one of my favorite games in the Zelda franchise. As I see it, the game is more of a story of Link and his journey than it is about the Champions or Hyrule. This incredibly animation by Mire focuses on Link and his story in Breath of the Wild. With the upbeat (if you don’t know Japanese) music of invaderT’s “Deathly Loneliness Attacks” playing in the background, Mire repeatedly uses partially moving artwork to form their animation. The art…

Zelda’s representation in the Smash roster is kept relatively low frills, sticking with each of the Triforce’s champions, with Link padding it out with three of his incarnations. But whether or not Zelda is well represented in the Smash roster is a debate for another day. What definitely is well showcased are the realms and locales of Hyrule, spanning everywhere from Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess to Skyward Sword and the most recent stage addition, Great Plateau Tower from…

The Master Sword is quite the staple of the Zelda series. After all, a hero needs his weapon, and what better to wield than the sword of a patron goddess, the Blade of Evil’s Bane? I mean, just the name sounds wicked. Yet, in Breath of the Wild, a game notorious for flipping the series on its head, the Master Sword wasn’t even the strongest weapon in the game. Far from it, actually. It sat at a mere base damage of 30, and…

It’s finally here! Super Smaaaash Broooss!! This week, Taylor and I take a deep dive to give our reactions to Ultimate – how do we like it so far? Is Spirit Mode cooler than it seemed at first? Who is our favorite newcomer? Does the revamped Classic mode hold up? Is Taylor the only one in the world who actually likes Young Link? Is Andy really going off on Kirby again? We also take time to talk a little God…

I wanted to avoid this, but I don’t think I can anymore. Hey, friends and “Quest” readers! Welcome back, and thank you for joining me today as I finally swallow my pride and complete the Trial of the Sword. The Beginning Trials. Yeah. A bit of history here. I have attempted this trial to upgrade the Master Sword a handful of times already, honing my strats and mastering the arts of minimalism and stealth. Admittedly, it took a bit of time…

Chapter Three The Princess and her champion sat along the precipice for a while, breathing in the fresh air in silence. Zelda’s head still rested on Link’s shoulder, and while her tears had finally dried upon her cheeks, she found she didn’t want to move. The cramp forming in her neck protested otherwise, though, and she slowly lifted her head, wincing at the slight stab of pain. The encrusted blood at her throat cracked and she itched at it, beginning…

Heroes and heroines are a key part of The Legend of Zelda mythology. When the storms of darkness rise up to threaten the world, heroes of every kind rise up to defend and protect it. Sometimes, these heroes succeed, and sometimes, they fail, but they are always there for the people of Hyrule. With this is mind, what makes a hero in The Legend of Zelda franchise? What are the external and internal qualities that make Link, Zelda, and the…
