When you think of the most useful tools that Link has in his arsenal, would the Iron Boots be your first choice? Have you ever wondered how to use statistics and the power of science and mathematics to prove this point? Well, in this mind-blowing video, media theorist The Theorizer has attempted to do just that! The Theorizer admits that he plays video games infrequently, but one game he absolutely loved was The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. He…

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…

Howdy, all you Zelda fanatics! What say you to another ZD Caption Contest? With Link’s Awakening releasing soon, Nintendo flooding us with hardware news, and the entire gaming community still recovering from last week’s Nintendo Direct, it’d be an understatement to say that Nintendo fans are getting restless. There are just so many games to play and to look forward to! Our poor hero Link has been running ragged; there’s just so much adventuring for him to do! Our Last…

On top of all of the news in regards to the Breath of the Wild sequel and Link’s Awakening Switch remake, The Wind Waker has been popping up a bit more often nowadays. Now while I wish the news about my favorite Zelda game of all-time was about an eventual Switch port, it’s been mostly about things in the speed running community. So take it from me how my curiosity was raised a bit when I saw YouTube’s SwankyBox specifically…

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…

My “What If…?” comes from a mix of places and has already been (or will be) explored in part this week. What if the Adult Timeline was drastically altered? I thought about it and wanted to make it unique in a way only I could provide. As I thought about it though, I realized I already had a perfect template for this. My Zelda novel and ongoing fan fiction piece, The Era Without A Hero! I was sitting at my…

We’ve all had that moment where Navi is really getting on our nerves. Maybe we’re in the Forest Temple, and this is our 26th time playing through Ocarina of Time, and we know exactly what to do, but the dang fairy is hovering over our heads shouting “Hey!” every five seconds. What if there was a way to turn her off for a while, or hey, even an option when you start the game to not even have her tag…

The Sages have played a vital role throughout the Zelda series. From helping Link and Zelda seal away Ganondorf in Ocarina of Time, to imbuing the Master Sword with divine power in The Wind Waker, the Sages are important figures that have appeared in several of the Zelda games. Their missing presence in Breath of the Wild is rather notable as a result, especially since there are several callbacks to the Sages in the game. This fan theory by RMFH…

The Legend of Zelda; an iconic title. The world over, fans have enjoyed the fantasy and wonder of this incredible franchise.

Gaming marathons, fan-fiction and more stand to honor this wonderful series. Gamers return to play their most loved Zelda titles over and over again. They are engrossed; captured…
