I’ve covered The Legend of Zelda news for almost five years now, and in that time, I’ve seen more rumors than I can possibly hope to count. Something about Nintendo’s tentpole fantasy series attracts off-the-wall predictions, unverified leaks, and outright hoaxes, as fans clamor for and cling to any new information on the next Zelda adventure. And that’s one reason why this job is so much fun! Seeing the passion of the fanbase explode with each new release cycle fuels…

Fierce Deity first appeared in Majora’s Mask on the Nintendo 64 in 2000. When Link wears the Fierce Deity mask, he transforms into an adult warrior with tremendous power and strength. The nature of the mask’s power is questionable, as it could be described as being just as dangerous as Majora’s. Once equipped, you can shoot beams from your double helix sword and generally make any boss fight in the game a lot easier! There have been many theories surrounding…

Nefarious, flagrant femmes have peppered The Legend of Zelda series since the very beginning.  They are foils to the stoic singularity that is Ganon’s overwhelming, sovereign presence. A flip side, a different flavor of evil, spanning his pair of broom-riding, hook-nosed Gerudo Moms to the flamboyant, murderous mages Ghirahim and Yuga; feminine energies have powered the sorcery which Link fends off time and time again. Arguably, the first feminine villain in the Zelda series was Veran from Oracle of Ages,…

Hello friends! We’re back after a week off due to to some technical snafus to talk all about MULTIPLAYER! Where have we been, and where could we be going? We brought in the expert, Kevin ‘KO’ O’Rourke, to help us talk Tri Force Heroes, Four Swords Adventures, Hyrule Warriors, Cadence of Hyrule and more and what aspects of those games we’d want want to see IF multiplayer were to be added to Breath of the Wild 2. Come hang and…

The closest that the Zelda series and Fire Emblem have crossed over is through the Super Smash Bros. franchise and the Warriors games developed by Koei Tecmo. While it’s always to fun Link and Marth duke it out in Smash Bros., and the Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors games are entertaining spinoffs, it would be great to see the franchises crossover even more. My answer for this? A Fire Emblem character in a Zelda game! After all, Fire Emblem’s…

One of the most memorable villains in the Zelda franchise, in my opinion, has been Dark Link. There’s just something about that battle in Ocarina of Time where he makes his first 3D appearance, and knowing that Link is battling the darkness in his heart. He’s made other appearances throughout the series, including his first in Zelda II :The Adventure of Link as the final boss of the game, and Twilight Princess, though he is merely used as a visionary tool in a…

The Zelda timeline has been a central point of Zelda theorizing for numerous years, and debate around it probably won’t be going away anytime soon. Every canon game so far has either a definitive placement or general area on the official Zelda timeline that it probably won’t stray far from. However, Breath of the Wild is the only exception. While we know the game is at the end of one of the three timeline splits, we still don’t know which…

Getting to 100k subscribers is a pretty big deal, and YouTube content creator MajorLink just passed that milestone. To commemorate the occasion, he announced his upcoming animation project called “Hero’s Purpose” with a beautiful and haunting trailer. The project aims to tell the story of the Hero of Time following the events of Majora’s Mask and leading up to his appearance before Twilight Princess, where he is seen as the Hero’s Shade. MajorLink also announced a Patreon page, where supporters…

As Zelda fans, we live in a wondrous time. Between the mainline entries, remasters, and spin-off titles such as Hyrule Warriors and the upcoming Cadence of Hyrule, there’s something to look forward to just about every year. If you ask me, this more recent content has been varied enough and spread just enough apart from one another so as not to dilute the franchise overall, but that’s a discussion for another time. No, today, with Nintendo’s E3 2019 presentation just…

Excluding spin-offs such as Hyrule Warriors or Super Smash Bros., the Zelda series has only ever dabbled in letting the player control characters other than Link. In The Wind Waker, for instance, the Hylian Hero gains the ability to telepathically control Makar and Medli within their respective dungeons. Although their abilities were fairly limited — used only to solve puzzles rather than fight enemies — these brief segments still provided a neat novelty. Several side quests and mini-games throughout the…
