One of the defining moments from 2019 for Zelda fans was the teaser trailer reveal for Breath of the Wild’s upcoming sequel. Since then, fans all over the world have been theorizing about it, studying the one minute twenty-seven second video, and coming up with some truly extraordinary ideas about the future of the series. I personally have enjoyed many of these lines of thinking, especially when they present a new plot line that could take the story of Zelda…

A large part of Link’s namesake is not only to connect a player to the world of Hyrule, but also to bring people together in the game itself. This linkage, if you will, has resulted in many different characters over the past 34 years, and in turn, many different relationships. The Zelda franchise has been meeting high standards as far as gameplay and visuals for so long that it comes into question not only which game does it best, but…

The Zelda franchise is famous for many things, be it a hero clad in green, a quest to obtain the Triforce, or an enticing sense of adventure.  There are so many amazing recurring themes in these games and each one stands out for its own reason.  But if there is one predominant recurring element in Zelda games, it’s got to be time travel. When I think of time travel in gaming, my mind goes straight to Ocarina of Time.  I…

Welcome to a new year and a new decade for Zelda! 2020 will be the the 34th year for the series and I can’t wait to see what is in store for our favorite legend. Since we’re on the subject of new, let’s discuss whether or not we’ll see new Zelda games this year.  We already know that a sequel to Breath of the Wild is in the works, but we don’t have a lot to go on right now….

Being the Hero of Hyrule, Link’s courageous acts for the kingdom usually feature an encounter with Princess Zelda. As there are only two Zelda games where the princess does not make a physical appearance, the pair seem to be tied by fate. Although Link and Zelda reincarnate together in the presence of evil forces in most titles, A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, and Breath of the Wild connect them in a unique way. For example, in Ocarina of Time, Princess Zelda teaches…

First of all, Happy New Year! Whether you’ve been in the new decade for almost a full day, or you’ve just finished your celebrations, we’re here to party with you through the next 12 months. Kicking off the new decade, and in an attempt to look past the incoming January blues, we’re thinking about what’s coming up for the Zelda series in the next 10 years. The past decade saw the release of 4 brand new titles (Skyward Sword, A Link Between…

Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for listening to the show all year and helping us have our best year yet! We thought we’d start off the new decade right by speculating what we expect and want to see from Zelda inn 2020. Does Breath of the Wild 2 come out? What about Skyward Sword HD? More Cadence of Hyrule? How about a Zelda Dungeon Maker? New Zelda characters in Smash? Plus, what about Nintendo itself in the New Year? Mases…

Director Josh Mason has recently released a new trailer and a “TV spot” for his upcoming Zelda fan film simply titled The Legend of Zelda. While it doesn’t seem to be adapting any one installment in particular, it’s clear that the project is taking inspiration from across the franchise as a whole to create an original story. Characters like Malon and Link appear to sport their Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess designs respectively, while others such as Ganon and Impa take on…

Breath of the Wild, Skyward Sword’s E3 demo, incredible trailers, Hyrule Historia, and more! Don’t miss this one! From all of us, thank you for your support and we hope you get to eat a ton of food this week!…

The time-shift stones in Skyward Sword are one of the more interesting mechanics in the series, as they amount to puzzles inside the Lanayru Mining Facility and the Lanayru Sandship that require players to think outside the box. The stones are introduced within minutes of first landing in Lanayru Desert, where one strike of Link’s weaponry turns the abysmal wasteland of the present into the flourishing meadows of the past. Besides the environment, an element that changes throughout the exploration…
