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 know for a fact that most of us are genuinely surprised when we learn that somebody famous from another form of media is actually an avid gamer. But many musicians, actors, and even professional sports athletes kick back and relax with some good, old-fashioned gaming. Speaking of athletes, we have one here who nobody is ready for… to perform a Zelda cover of all things. WWE Superstar and former SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Asuka recently launched her own gaming…

At the tail end of the pre-Link’s Awakening hype train comes a new teaser trailer for an upcoming Zelda fan film titled “The Legend of ZELDA”. The teaser opens with awe-inspiring wide shots of various mountain ranges, followed by mysterious shots of multiple characters from throughout the series. Directed by Josh Mason of Mason Studios, this film also features the work of award winning cinematographer James Puckett (Delta Crossings, Finality) and legendary makeup artist A.G. Howard. A.G. Howard’s work may…

The upcoming Nintendo Switch Lite has one thing that many fans have been wanting, a much better d-pad. The one we got on the vanilla Switch console is nice, but it’s less of a directional pad and more like the C-buttons on a Nintendo 64 controller. Luckily, you do not necessarily have to pay an arm and a leg and wait for the Switch Lite to arrive on September 20th in order to experience a more traditional gamepad. Three Nintendo…

A new Legend of Zelda theme for Tetris 99 was showcased during today’s Nintendo Direct. The game’s free update, Tetris 99 2.0, will be available tomorrow and features a variety of new content. The handful of added themes will be unlocked in-game using tickets acquired from completing new Daily Missions. In addition to these themes, a mode called Tetris Invictus for Level 99 players to duke-it-out was also announced for the update, as well as additional player icons. New DLC…

The year was 1993. In an effort to capitalize on the success of Nintendo’s massively popular Super Mario Bros. series, Hollywood brought the portly plumber to the big screen. Envisioned as an action comedy in the vein of Ghostbusters, the movie boasted a stellar cast with such talents as Bob Hoskins, John Leguizamo, and Dennis Hopper. This movie had a lot to prove, considering it was the first Nintendo property to be adapted into a live-action film. Unfortunately, the results…

Characters in video games usually go on some pretty wild solo adventures. Imagine if some of them were partnered up with other characters from different game series; I think there would be potential for some interesting dynamics and events that could occur. With this in mind, what if Mario was partnered with Link in a setting similar to reality? I kept thinking if these characters were stuck together they’d be stoners, and my favorite movie about stoners is hands down…

The Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda series are both very iconic. We’ve seen Super Mario-themed easter eggs within many Zelda games, and in a way that makes merging these games feel pretty easy. An interesting scenario I’ve thought of is what if Zelda and Peach swapped kingdoms in the middle of attacks from Ganondorf and Bowser? Honestly, I’ve always felt that Ganondorf is a lot more menacing than Bowser. I think if Bowser tried to kidnap Zelda…

We all want to look really, really, really good before we all head out for the day. Some of us do it one way, while others do it in a completely different other way; some may even do so by representing their favorite game franchise. I know that’s what most of us do around these parts, so why not do it with even more Zelda flair? The pop culture online store Zavvi has just unveiled what they’re calling “The Legend of…
