The Silent Princess was a beautiful flower we saw scattered in the hillsides and valleys of Hyrule in Breath of the Wild. It stood as a metaphor for the titular Princess Zelda in her struggle to meet Link and stand up to save Hyrule. In the game you can find them in Princess Zelda’s study, but thanks to LallensGarden on Etsy, you can now find a Silent Princess in your own study! These silk flowers mimic the ones in the…

Zelda’s goddess outfit from Breath of the Wild has become iconic, and it’s now the star of the latest work of artist Kutty Sark. This amazing speed painting video takes us from start to finish of the artwork, from the rough sketch, to the cleaning up, coloring, detailing, and shading, to the important final touches. Zelda looks so realistic and ethereal against the backdrop of the Triforce. It’s a really beautiful piece! And it’s so fun to watch it come…

Greetings, Zelda fans! After a week hiatus, the Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest has returned with another fun Age of Calamity screenshot! During my playthrough of the latest Hyrule Warriors adventure, I was pretty excited to see the game anchored by a strong cast of female characters. Princess Zelda, Impa, Mipha, Urbosa, and of course Purah were responsible for some of the best moments in the game, so I figured I’d highlight two such ladies today! Our Last Contest: Mipha took…

From the boulder-like Gorons living on Death Mountain to the fish-like Zora living in Hyrule’s waterways and oceans, The Legend of Zelda has always been a franchise filled with diverse creatures and beings that spur the imagination. However in the past decade, Nintendo has regularly released a Zelda game each year, and with this consistency has more firmly set the index for creatures in the narrative universe. Koroks, Bokoblins, Lynels and others have become mainstays; many of the creatures from early…

Breath of the Wild introduced us to an entirely new weapon system that no other Zelda game has ever seen. Though it came as a major disappointment and inconvenience to many, the introduction of different breakable weapons set Breath of the Wild apart from all other Zelda games. With Breath of the Wild 2 on the horizon it makes one wonder if new weapon types and classes will be introduced to the game. I really hope that there are new…

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. The story of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has been… controversial, to put it bluntly. Promising “a new story set 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” this Zelda spinoff generated quite a bit of buzz within the Zelda community, as fans’ imaginations ran wild with speculation about experiencing the tragedy of the Calamity first-hand. Which story elements from Breath of the Wild‘s memories will…

With almost two weeks of 2021 under our belts, it’s possible a lot of us who made resolutions have already broken them (or haven’t set out to accomplish them yet!). And while we don’t always get a perfect read on Link’s personality, I wonder whether he would join those of us who have already fallen short of their self-improvement goals. We know that Link is prone to being sleepy, quiet, and generally crafty. So how well would he fair when…

You’ve beaten the game. The credits are rolling. The camera is panning across all the landscapes you visited throughout your journey. You breathe a sigh of relief that your fishing rod strategy managed to take out Ganondorf. As the screen fades to black you’re returned to the title screen with a single question on the mind. “Now what do I do?” Often, we wind up finding another game to play, or doing something more productive with our day. But every…

In Skyward Sword, Demise condemned his future incarnations, along with Link and Zelda’s reincarnations, to be caught in an endless cycle vying for the Triforce. The cyclical nature of their conflict and the stories told about it enable Hyrule to be in a position to fight back — but most of the time, Hyrule and its denizens are caught off guard by Ganon’s return. In some installments, like The Wind Waker, an ominous wind foreshadows his return, and in Ocarina…
