With the last of the five DLC fighters revealed for Super Smash Bros: Ultimate during this morning’s Direct presentation, series director Masahiro Sakurai enthusiastically announced that six more Challenger Packs are on their way. Although none of the six new fighters have been shown so far, purchase of the second DLC pack, Fighters Pass Vol. 2, will include a bonus Mii Fighter costume inspired by the Ancient Armor from Breath of the Wild. The costume, much like other Zelda costumes…

Back in September, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai announced that more DLC fighters — beyond the five that were initially planned — were officially in development for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Well, after this morning’s Smash Bros. presentation, we now know how many new fighters we can expect to join the fray in the near future. Sakurai announced today that six new Challenger Packs are in development and will be bundled together as part of Fighters Pass Vol…

A large part of Link’s namesake is not only to connect a player to the world of Hyrule, but also to bring people together in the game itself. This linkage, if you will, has resulted in many different characters over the past 34 years, and in turn, many different relationships. The Zelda franchise has been meeting high standards as far as gameplay and visuals for so long that it comes into question not only which game does it best, but…

I’ve done a few speedruns, but I wouldn’t call myself a speedrunner. There are so many amazing speedrunners out there, and I am always amazed to watch them have a go at Zelda games! You can check out some awesome speedruns on Games Done Quick, and the Zelda Dungeon Marathoners often run our favorite Zelda games at a quick pace! So here’s the question; what is your favorite Zelda game to speedrun or watch as a speedrun? Last Summer’s Games…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild introduced many would-be fan favorite characters to the world of Zelda, not least of all was the accordion-playing Rito, Kass. Since his memorable first appearance, fans and artists alike have tried to bring Kass to life through their art, whether it be music, animation, or beyond. This adorable Kass plush was crafted by artist Moko as a commission for Twitter user TheNeverWolf (some content may be suggestive). Aside from its everlasting cuteness,…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was an incredibly innovative game. This title brought many changes to the “Zelda Formula” that some fans felt had started to get stale. One thing that didn’t change was the playable character though. Link remained the conduit for the player’s exploration of the wild and wonderful world of Hyrule. With this in mind, how would Breath of the Wild be different if Zelda was the playable character instead of Link? It is…

I love trailers. It feels incredible to get a sneak peek at a shiny, exciting new movie or game. Regardless of whether it is a game, movie, sports event (the NBA finals opening montage, for example), trailers have a special way of getting people excited for an upcoming event. In the past few decades, trailers have played an increasingly important role in the marketing of games and films. Trailer designers and game developers spend weeks choosing what to reveal and…

Breath of the Wild introduced three majestic dragons into the world of Hyrule; Dinraal, Naydra and Farosh. Named for the Golden Goddesses, they traversed the skies and were associated with the Springs of Power, Wisdom and Courage. The three dragons played a part in their individual shrine quests, and had items that were used to upgrade Link’s Champion’s Tunic, but other than that they didn’t play a huge role. Will this change in Breath of the Wild 2 though? The dragons…

The Zelda franchise is famous for many things, be it a hero clad in green, a quest to obtain the Triforce, or an enticing sense of adventure.  There are so many amazing recurring themes in these games and each one stands out for its own reason.  But if there is one predominant recurring element in Zelda games, it’s got to be time travel. When I think of time travel in gaming, my mind goes straight to Ocarina of Time.  I…

Breath of the Wild was very innovative in how Link earned Heart Containers and the new edition of energy. Hearts were traditionally earned by finding Pieces of Heart and creating Heart Containers automatically through your inventory. They were also awarded at the end of major dungeons (which was still a thing in Breath of the Wild). However, in Breath of the Wild Pieces of Heart are gone, and Spirit Orbs essentially took their place. It does take a bit of…
