Category: Majora’s Mask

Zelda lore is heavily steeped in ancient mythos, with the goddesses creating the land of Hyrule before departing to the heavens. While much of the series’ lore revolves around the three Golden Goddesses, other games include references to other gods, such as Majora’s Mask with the Goddess of Time, Skyward Sword with the Goddess Hylia, and The Wind Waker with the Wind Gods Zephos and Cyclos. There are also many lesser-beings who (while not considered gods or deities) are still…

Twilight Princess is a game that is notable for moving away from the brighter graphics and colors seen in its predecessors. In response to criticism about The Wind Waker‘s cartoonish graphics from Western gamers, Nintendo created Twilight Princess with the intention of appeasing those fans and producing a more dark and realistic looking game. On one hand, I can’t blame Nintendo for trying something new, and there were times when the game’s darker, more muted colors conveyed a sense of…

Halloween is right around the corner! As we get ready for the spookiest day of the year by decorating our front lawns and putting the finishing touches on our costumes, I have to ask the question: which Zelda game is the scariest? Most Zelda games have some horror aspects, from creepy enemies like Redeads, Poes, or Zombie Bokoblins, to entire dungeons which seem meant to give the player chills. This might sound odd, but The Wind Waker ended up being…

I was introduced to the Zelda series during the Nintendo 64 generation with Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. And as much their grand scale and state-of-the-art graphics left an impact on me as a young gamer, the inclusion of horror elements in these games equally stuck with me after I had finished their main quests. Locations like the Shadow Temple and Ikana Canyon fueled nightmares; and enemies like ReDeads and Dead Hands sustained a profound fear of the dark…

Most Zelda fans (myself included) love to collect amiibo based on the series. The more detailed figurines can look fantastic on your shelf as a display all of their own. Some amiibo are essential for collecting rare items, weapons, or clothing linked to a certain game. It can be very frustrating for a fan, though, when a specific amiibo they want becomes out of stock. Well, you could be in luck here, as Nintendo UK’s Official Online Store has relisted…

It’s almost the spookiest time of the year, which means that The Champions’ Cast is going full Zeldaween mode! We’re here talking about the ABSOLUTE CREEPIEST places you can visit in Hyrule and beyond. We all know how creepy the Shadow Temple and Arbiters Grounds are, but what else made our list? Plus, we talk really great games in general to play around Halloween time, and spend a second talking about those Okami rumors. Don’t miss Alasyn and Andy in…

One of the most wonderful things about music is the medium’s flexibility and malleability. A song’s identity can change with an adjustment to the instrumentation used, the tempo, or the length of the song. Since The Legend of Zelda has a massive list of iconic songs, the music of the series is ripe for reinterpretation and transformation. This remix/re-imagining of “Stone Temple Tower” by Mewmore is a great example of how the choices made by a musician can change the…

Hyrule Warriors was released on the Wii U in 2014. The original game is over five years old, but we now have the Definitive Edition, which includes all the downloadable content that had been released since the game initially came out. It had a unique story with a couple of new characters, and took us across time through popular Zelda titles like Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. The game gave us a unique spin on a…

Link, the hero of the Zelda series, has had a voice for over two decades now. While he still doesn’t talk much, we’ve heard his screams, grunts, and cries in a handful of Zelda titles. He’s been portrayed as a dashing young man in games like Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword, and he’s been portrayed as a courageous child in games like Majora’s Mask and The Wind Waker. Several voice actors have stepped into the Link role…

We power rank each game up until the Wii era and discuss if they need a remake, what quality of life improvements each game could make, what art style would be best for each one, and so much more!
