Throughout the Legend of Zelda series, one thing that players frequently look forward to is discovering and using new items. While there are many classic and fan-favorite items such as the Hookshot and the Bow, there are plenty of items that made an appearance in only one or two games in the franchise, and such items have been lost to time. In Oracle of Seasons and Four Swords, there was an item called the Magnetic Gloves that could be used…

Let’s go over some logistics. As stated in the video, you have a chance to win a pretty sweet bag embroidered with the Sheikah logo courtesy of…

The Legend of Zelda is one of the oldest video game series in existence. With more than three decades under his belt, Link sets out to save the world from evil time and time again. These three decades have seen a fairly large amount of entries, each spanning a unique story and a spectacular gameplay. After these three decades, it’s only fair to want to look back at what the Zelda series has accomplished. This is what today’s video, made by YouTuber beatdownboogie,…

Are the games like Minish Cap, the Four Swords series, and the Oracle games as good as entries like Ocarina of Time or Phantom Hourglass? A Capcom Zelda game normally contains a certain amount of heart in it. It tends to capture the feelings and emotions from the characters or the story that is driving the characters forward. Nintendo, by contrast, seems to focus on aspects that are closer to how the game plays or feels to the player. Sometimes, Nintendo seems to have problems with making relatable…

Bringing older games onto current generation systems is nothing new. Nintendo’s arguably been one of the forerunners on this front, whether it’s been the Virtual Console bringing their classic library to new gamers or their recent trend of upgrading older games to newer hardware. Since backwards compatibility is less of a talked-about selling point, the trend is moving towards games being remade from the ground up. We’ve already started to see the older Legend of Zelda games move towards the…

“Hey, listen!” From the very beginning of The Legend of Zelda series, we’ve always known that it was dangerous to go alone. While the first few games were solitary adventures, it wasn’t long until Link would have a trusty companion on his quests. Starting with Navi in Ocarina of Time, there was a long stretch of games in the series where Link had a perpetual voice of reason and direction (that we mostly mashed the A button to get through)….

ClickSelect compiled a video of Zelda history. The video goes through The Legend of Zelda for NES all the way to Breath of the Wild. There is no narration to the video, but each game has a text box displaying a trivia fact to keep the viewer engaged with the content. The compilation follows a fairly simple format, in which the release date, title, and systems the game can be played on appears in the lower left corner of the screen. The Zelda remakes are not included…

The Legend of Zelda series has a lot of interesting merchandise apart from its Video Games, so there’s always something for someone to be interested in. The difficult manga series, Hyrule Historia, and Arts and Artifacts are a few of the more interesting titles to say the least. If you haven’t had a chance to pick some of these up before now, then today may very well be your lucky day! Over on Amazon right now, it looks like there’s a…
