Despite the critical success and love Wind Waker has received over the years, its sequels aren’t regarded with much fondness. While Phantom Hourglass receives more criticism (for the right reasons, if we’re being honest), Spirit Tracks seemed to do better, but not by much. I played Spirit Tracks quite a bit, and made it through a decent chunk of the game, but not because of the story or characters. The only thing I was remotely interested in was rescuing bunnies for the…

The evolution of storytelling in video games has been both a gradual and explosive process over the past thirty years. Older games tended to have simplistic stories at best, while games in the present tend to have sweeping, cinematic tales that span the multimedia spectrum. The Zelda series since its inception has toed the line in between the two extremes. For fans though, Zelda‘s story has been a hotly contested topic even before the controversial introduction of the timeline. Today, we’re debating two…

It’s finally here! It’s with great pleasure and pride that we at Zelda Informer welcome all you Zelda fans to Zelda Informer’s Best Zelda Ever: 2017 Edition! It’s been awhile since the last time Zelda Informer put together a list like this, and in that time, a lot has happened. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was finally released; longtime editors left, while new editors joined; opinions changed, games aged for better and for worse; and even Zelda…

Dr.Wily does a lot of Zelda video analyses on various aspects of the series, such as an interesting video series on the evolution of different races in the Zelda franchise. In this series, Dr.Wily tries to track what changes were made to a race’s design and how certain characteristics of the race changed. His previous entries include an analysis of the Kokiri and the evolution of the Deku, for example. The particular episode above is dedicated to the Poe. The Poe first appeared in A Link…

Our Best Dungeon tournament continues with two new titles. As Great Palace and Thieves’ Hideout duke it out in yesterday’s poll, the winning dungeons of Ocarina of Time and Phantom Hourglass step into the fray. Spirit Temple (Ocarina of Time) Vs. Ghost Ship (Phantom Hourglass) Introduced late in Ocarina of Time, the Spirit Temple makes the most of pretty much every skill the player has cultivated over the course of the game. Just about every item, tool, and spell found…

When I first picked up Phantom Hourglass and saw that the game was going to have a focus on the Ghost Ship, I was excited to get some actual background and lore on the Ghost Ship that you come across in The Wind Waker, thinking the two ships were one in the same. However, as I continued to play the game and discovered the Ghost Ship’s true purpose in Phantom Hourglass, I realized that they were two completely different ships….

It’s time to address the first DS Zelda game in our latest poll. As Arbiter’s Grounds leads our heated Twilight Princess poll, Phantom Hourglass steps up to take in your votes. We anticipate some interesting opinions in this bout, so let’s get stared. What is the Best Dungeon in Phantom Hourglass? Link and Tetra’s continued adventures across the seas bring them to the domain of the Ocean King, where a mysterious Ghost Ship roams. After a few mishaps, our hero…

We all have to admit that not every character in the Zelda universe is our cup of tea. Whether it’s the runner who always wins the race in Ocarina of Time, the figurine pictographer in The Wind Waker, or of course Tingle. I don’t know what it is about Tingle, but I’m just not a big fan of him. He always comes off less like a helpful NPC, and more like a cosplayer who doesn’t know any better. For those…
