There is no shortage of humorous moments in the wide world of Zelda. From hands in the toilet asking you for PAPER, to the ridiculous nature of the Groosinator, and to, well… Tingle. Nintendo always seems to find a way to make us laugh at least once in a Zelda game, so the question today is, what’s the funniest moment you can think of from the series? For me, I think of the The Wind Waker and poor old Link…

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…

I think more so than any other Zelda game, The Wind Waker‘s incarnation of Link felt the most like a child whose journey to save the world and become the hero was forced on him. Ocarina of Time started with the Deku Tree telling Link of his great destiny, but Link was already having dreams of Ganondorf and he was able to team up with Zelda. The same is true of Link in Skyward Sword, with Link having dreams of…

Imagine a picturesque village. There’s the town leader, a school, and traditions that the people of the village hold. There’s also giant birds called Loftwings, and did I mention that this village is in the sky? Welcome to Skyloft! The beautiful village that can be explored in Skyward Sword. Today we are going to tackle the wonderful question of what the Skyloftians do with their lost loved ones. I have a few theories so here we go: One – Skyloft…

I was on a mission as I entered the dizzying luster that is my local bookstore. Not today, delicious pastries from the cafe. Get back from my sight, gorgeous but egregiously priced art books. Only one book was coming home with me that night, and it was volume five of the Twilight Princess manga. If you haven’t given them a try, The Legend of Zelda manga are a fantastic read. The art is luscious, the team is given some liberties…

Throughout the entire Zelda series, whether the MacGuffin of the franchise is vital to Link’s quest or not, the Triforce is the main key to the in-game universe. It’s what drives Ganon to do what he does, while it drives Link and Princess Zelda to stop him in order to save Hyrule from the end of the world. Even just the symbol of the Triforce has been a staple of video game history and our world for over three decades…

You’ve all probably heard this line before, “Never tell me the odds!” which was said by Han Solo from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. It’s a line that a lot of gamers can agree with, whether it comes to picking up rare loot in a JRPG, or just struggling to capture that elusive Hylian Loach in Ocarina of Time. We don’t really listen to those odds, even when somebody in the game we’re playing says otherwise. That’s what Fi…

It’s been eight years since Nintendo introduced the canon Zelda timeline in Hyrule Historia. And in that period of time, it’s received a lot of ridicule. And while I agree with certain critiques that fans have for it, I also appreciate the history and lore that it provides for the world of Hyrule, and I know some agree with me on this as well. If you’ve been around the Zelda fandom long enough, you probably know about the different timelines…

Today I want to talk about two tremendous traders, profit pushers and super sellers from The Legend of Zelda. They both want to make as many rupees as they can and add a splash of comedy weirdness to the Zelda series in the process. I am of course talking about none other than Tingle and Beedle. Tingle is one of our favorite odd bods in the Zelda universe, a thirty-five-year-old man obsessed with forest fairies that sells maps. You can…

The Legend of Zelda is one of those special video game series that has no truly bad game within it. Even the lesser regarded games have their fair share fans and feature a few shining moments. As a diehard Zelda fan, I can’t really say that any game in the series doesn’t deserve to exist. But what if… I was forced to choose one? If, with a gun pointed to my head, I had to select one Zelda game to…
