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 Zonai are one of the more mysterious tribes that inhabit the lands of Hyrule in Breath of the Wild…. or used to inhabit the land in this case. Those in the game who can really explain who these people were are few and far between. The only clues left around that confirm this tribe’s existence are the monuments and structures that can be found all over Hyrule. There’s even one Zelda theorist we have covered in the past who even…

What makes a being go mad? Is it their lust for power? Are they driven to go further beyond anyone expected them to ever go in their lives? This is what you have to think of when talking about The Usurper King Zant from Twilight Princess. This member of the Twili species wanted nothing more to cast out the old guard of the royal family and constitute his own ideals. The question remains though, what truly drove Zant to do…

I was on a mission as I entered the dizzying luster that is my local bookstore. Not today, delicious pastries from the cafe. Get back from my sight, gorgeous but egregiously priced art books. Only one book was coming home with me that night, and it was volume five of the Twilight Princess manga. If you haven’t given them a try, The Legend of Zelda manga are a fantastic read. The art is luscious, the team is given some liberties…

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…

Hey there, Zelda fans! Are you ready for another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest? It’s a special week here at the website, as we’re celebrating “What If… Week”, a seven-day celebration of kooky scenarios and hypotheticals. The staff has thought up some really strange and creative what-if’s (some I was a little shook by), so I figured the Caption Contest should feature an out-there scenario as well. Allow me to present a question: what if Zelda used…

To this day, “Midna’s Desperate Hour” remains one of the most memorable sequences in the Zelda series. Despite not actually racing against the clock, many players felt a tremendous sense of urgency while attempting to save a wounded Midna’s life. Upon reaching Zelda’s chamber in Hyrule Castle, this chapter culminates in the Hyrulean Princess sacrificing her life force to the diminutive imp. Now, as much as I adore the story of Twilight Princess, many fans and I are still kind…

Who remembers the Zelda Collector’s Edition for the GameCube? Honestly, I still have mine from when I was ten! It was a great starter pack for anyone first getting into Zelda during the GameCube days. I especially liked it as my family missed the Nintendo 64 and jumped from SNES straight to the GameCube. That said, we were able to get our hands on Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, and even play a demo of The Wind Waker over and over! Thinking about…

Throughout The Legend of Zelda series we are introduced to an expanse of incarnations of Link and Zelda that spans vastly across the different eras of Hyrule, and even across different timelines. In particular, one thing I have taken notice of in this narrative formula is that Link has always been Link, but Zelda’s identity has not always followed suit. Consider examples in Ocarina of Time’s Sheik and The Wind Waker’s Tetra. At first, it’s hard to reconcile that Zelda, Tetra, and Sheik are all,…

Welcome back to Inspired By Zelda. After a little bit of a layoff, the series spotlighting the greatest Zelda-Like games around returns, with Andy taking a bit of a break this month and handing the reigns over to Sean to talk one of his favorite games. The game in the spotlight is Transistor, an an action role-playing game developed and published by Supergiant Games. Transistor is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam.  When I began to investigate Transistor as a…
