Strap in for a wild ride with the gang as they take a trip through Zelda history and talk about which games they would want to see remade. We power rank each game up until the Wii era and discuss if they need a remake, what quality of life improvements each game could make, what art style would be best for each one, and so much more! Make sure that you don’t miss this one!   Podbean | iTunes | Download Follow the Champions’…

This Daily Debate sounds more like a tribute to Goldilocks and the Three Bears! We all have our favorite The Legend of Zelda games, but have you ever considered ranking them in order of difficulty? To even begin to choose which is the hardest or easiest is bound to cause a divide among friends, family and perhaps the whole community! As for which is just right, that is also a very personal thing. To speak for myself, I would say…

The 1989 Legend of Zelda cartoon remains a notable if curious footnote in history, as the series did a lot at the time of its release to acquaint viewers with the world of Hyrule but has become the butt of nonstop jokes in the years to follow. But for all its faults, the Zelda cartoon is just so dang lovable in its stupidity. There’s a reason why the phrase, “Well excuse me, Princess,” still resonates with fans to this day….

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…

The cover we’re listening to today is for the Hyrule Temple Theme from Super Smash Bros. Melee and features a genre of music I’m not that familiar with, Ska. Apparently, ska is a music genre which is a hybrid mashup of both the Carribean and American musical styles, making prominent use of horn instruments. The Ska Tune Network takes this music genre and puts some more flair of sorts on this memorable score. Other ska covers he’s done for Zelda include…

One of the most memorable villains in the Zelda franchise, in my opinion, has been Dark Link. There’s just something about that battle in Ocarina of Time where he makes his first 3D appearance, and knowing that Link is battling the darkness in his heart. He’s made other appearances throughout the series, including his first in Zelda II :The Adventure of Link as the final boss of the game, and Twilight Princess, though he is merely used as a visionary tool in a…

You heard that right. Zelda tribute band Master Sword have been working hard on their new album — The Final Door. They launched a Kickstarter campaign back in November to help pay for the costs associated with making a professional album. Matt Farkas, the band’s keyboardist, explains that: “Like all the money we earn, nothing goes into our own pockets, but rather straight back into the band to make the next album, t-shirt line, music video or live show even…

Around this same time last year, we reported that Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu was asked in an interview what game he would like to make from any Nintendo franchise. Aizu said that he would be interested in doing a “modern remake” of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. And with the remake of Link’s Awakening right around the corner, he was asked about his answer to that question just recently. In a recent interview with Video Game Chronicle, Aizu…

Hot on the trail of their freshman album, Shadow and Steel, Zelda tribute metal band Master Sword is ready to begin recording their newest album, The Final Door. They can’t do it alone, however. In order to help make their next album a reality, the band has launched a new Kickstarter campaign The Kickstarter has a goal of $16,000, and the band has already raised almost $6,000 (at the time of writing) with just 84 backers. There are a variety of…

No game is perhaps more controversial in the Zelda franchise than Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Constantly met with harsh criticisms — rightfully so, as many would believe — and praise alike, this game stands out more than the likes of Skyward Sword or even Breath of the Wild. It is popular opinion across much of the fanbase that this game is the worst in the franchise. As part of a series that aims to analyze every game in the…
