No matter how successful and iconic a game series can be, it is almost certain to have some skeletons in its closet. The Legend of Zelda series is no different, and that’s what WhatCulture Gaming on YouTube explains in this recent video. The video lists 10 things that you may or may not have known already, but one thing is for certain: it also uncovers some of Nintendo’s darkest secrets about the Zelda series, such as the name change from “The Hyrule Fantasy”,…

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…

The Triforce is widely considered to be one of the biggest MacGuffin’s in all of gaming. This key to the land of Hyrule has spanned eons, caused massive wars, and continues to be the driving force for Link, Ganon, and Princess Zelda. There is no doubt that the Triforce has greatly changed the landscape of the Zelda world with each and every generation, but only to those who have truly used its complete capabilities. The video we’re looking at today comes to…

During the month of November, we at Zelda Informer have came up with an averaged out list of the best Zelda games ever, which will be unveiled next week on November 30th. This is also the place to remind you that you can win a slick bag with the Shiekah logo embroidered on it, courtesy of our friends at Musterbrand.

Mark Brown recently uploaded the latest edition of  his”Boss Keys” series, in which he analyzes both The Legend of Zelda (NES) and Zelda II. This video also marks the penultimate entry to the “Boss Keys” series. Mark Brown did this video after getting so many requests, and he gives a thorough view about what he likes and dislikes about a game’s dungeon design, as always. He starts by examining the dungeons found in the very first Zelda title before moving on to…

Welcome to the Cave of Trials. The premise is simple: Every week, two characters from The Legend of Zelda series will duke it out for the Zelda Informer Championship. Whoever has more votes at the end of the week, wins. This is strictly a popularity contest, not who you think would win in a fight; so vote for who you like better! The winner will then go on next week to defend the title against a new challenger, as decided by…

In such a beloved series, not every Zelda game is received well by everyone when it is first released. Maybe you can’t get over a certain mechanic, or maybe you just don’t like the style of gameplay it presents. If you are stubborn, maybe you put that game away forever and never touch it again. There are times in life, though, where we all deserve a second chance, and we need to pull those games off the shelf and give them another…

Our Best Dungeon tournament continues with two new titles. As Earth Temple and Palace of Winds duke it out in Friday’s poll, the winning dungeons of The Adventure of Link and A Link Between Worlds step into the fray. Great Palace (The Adventure of Link) Vs. Thieves’ Hideout (A Link Between Worlds) The Adventure of Link is unique — amongst several other ways — in that its dungeons are explored from a side-scrolling perspective. Link travels left and right throughout…

Released at a time when video game sequels rarely stuck to formula, this follow-up to the 1986 classic bucked many its predecessor’s defining qualities. The Zelda series had no set identity at that time, allowing Nintendo to experiment with drastic design changes and new gameplay ideas. And while the series eventually committed to the template set by the original game, Zelda II remains an intriguing oddity among the most…
