A principle element in Skyward Sword‘s plot was the Gate of Time. Control of this portal to Hyrule’s distant past was critical to the plans of both Ghirahim and Impa. Whichever side proved victorious would irrevocably alter the destiny of the kingdom. Besides its lore implications, the Gate also plays host to a collage design of Zelda series symbolism. Besides a large central depiction of the Triforce, each of the golden triangle’s virtues are represented in the form of the…

There are many ways that music can transport us to another place and time. Sometimes it’s a song that we hear that reminds of when we were young, and other times it’s just a song that makes us think of happy times. Songs can even put our brains in a state of focus that helps us study. The music from The Legend of Zelda certainly is no stranger to any of these situations. Many of the songs are instantly recognizable…

Zelda and Link. Zelink. The alleged romance between these legendary holders of the Triforce has been the topic of debate for generations of Zelda fans. Games such as The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Spirit Tracks strongly suggest a romantic connection between the characters. Some titles do more than suggest; while its canonicity is debated, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity presents the most compelling and direct evidence of the deep love shared by these two. Now, fans of the Zelink romance…

As someone who has played the majority of Zelda games, there’s one thing I’ve noticed through the years: Things seem to be getting… easier.

After flipping the dungeon upside down in an eerie fashion, I didn’t expect another mini-boss after the Garo Master, but as I entered a room engulfed in darkness and saw the iconic door locking moment, I knew I was in for something spooky. Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed, and I am not ashamed too say I audibly screamed a few times in fear when…
