Welcome back to Zelda Runners, your bi-weekly recap on everything Zelda speedrunning. This week’s article, as you might have gathered from the title, is a special recap of the recent Summer Games Done Quick 2019 event, which took place last week. The event, which happens twice each year (Awesome Games Done Quick takes place in January), raises money for two charities. The summer variant uses donations from viewers, Twitch Subsriptions and funds raised from their various sponsors, and this year…

The Zelda series has a variety of stand out side quests, and every fan probably has one, if not a few that will appeal to them.  A great example of one of the most popular Zelda side quests is probably “Anju’s Anguish” from Majora’s Mask.  But this isn’t about which side quest is the most popular, it’s about which is your personal favorite.  Although it might be hard to do, I want to know what you would choose as your…

The Lens of Truth is one of the coolest items in the Zelda series. Not only does it have a useful function, but its design and aesthetic ties to the Sheikah adds fascinating lore to the franchise. Giving Link the ability to see hidden pathways and items normally invisible to the naked eye, this should have been item that had so many applications and opportunities to be used. Maybe that’s why this item’s limited applicability in Ocarina of Time is…

Since the release of Breath of the Wild, many Zelda fans have been hoping that Nintendo would reuse the game’s assets to make a new game, much like how Ocarina of Time‘s engine was used to make Majora’s Mask. Such was the case when a Breath of the Wild sequel was teased at E3 this year, with producer Eiji Aonuma confirming that the sequel was inspired by desire “to revisit that Hyrule again”. In a recently published interview, Aonuma expanded somewhat on this…

Everyone here has been around the block with the Zelda series a time or two, but did you know that there are some errors in the different Zelda games? The YouTube channel DidYouKnowGaming? delved into some of these mistakes. My favorite mistake mentioned is that the Thunder Helm in Breath of the Wild can be permanently lost if Link doesn’t have any armor slots left to hold it. This is one that I never knew about, but I’m certainly glad…

There are a variety of characters who have worn masks or covered their face in The Legend of Zelda series. From Link, to Skull Kid, to Zant, to Ravio, masks have been key elements of several iconic characters. And from Ocarina of Time to Breath of the Wild, masks have popped up in a variety of games through the years. With this in mind, what is the coolest or best design for a mask in The Legend of Zelda series? In…

So this is what a post-E3 world looks like huh… Well, once you’ve picked your jaw off the floor, and rehydrated your Ganon-plants, it’s time to delve back into the world of Zelda speedrunning. What have I got in store for you this week? You’ll just have to read on and find out… Now Playing Big Zelda news this week? Nope, nothing. Not that I can think of anyway. New game? Nope, don’t think so? Look, unless there’s a HD remake of Triforce Heroes, I’m…

By far the most shocking announcement during Nintendo’s E3 Direct this year was the reveal that Nintendo is developing a sequel to Breath of the Wild. It astonishes me that a roughly two minute long trailer can yield so much content to break asunder, analyze, and even engender theories from. After seeing the reveal, Zelda fans immediately took to the internet, endeavoring to dissect what to expect from the sequel. Amidst all the speculation, what has generally been agreed upon…

When I first watched the trailer for the Breath of the Wild sequel, I excitedly texted my roommates about it and mentioned that I was getting “Majora’s Mask vibes” from it. The unnerving background music, the dark visuals, the dramatic cuts, the reanimated corpse, Zelda seemingly coming face-to-face with this horrific being — the whole thing was creepy, and intentionally so. And I wasn’t the only one who saw possible parallels — multiple fans caught on to the darker tone…

Following the E3 Direct yesterday, Game Informer sat down to interview Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma. Naturally, conversation turned towards the biggest surprise of the Direct – the announcement of the development of a Breath of the Wild sequel. Aonuma mentioned that the sequel was a result of him wanting to revisit Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule again:  “One of the reasons we wanted to create a continuation was because I wanted to revisit that Hyrule again and use that world…
