The Zelda Challenge has returned and we are starting 2018 with a hot topic! There are many beloved characters in The Legend of Zelda series. As documented in the latest entry in the Hyrule Compendium, there is a never ending supply to choose from. This only made our debate much more difficult this time around. Kevin and I were tasked to pick one character from the series who we felt was the most fleshed out and compelling. I personally felt…

To me, the games of the Legend of Zelda franchise have typically been centered around three main things: adventure, puzzle-solving, and combat. In my experience, the way the combat feels in a Zelda game can drastically affect my opinion of the game overall. While some of the older games in the franchise didn’t have any special techniques to use in combat, the series did grow and incorporate new features in this department. Two games that to stand out to me for their impressive combat mechanics…

Ganondorf has been a staple of the Zelda series since its inception and as such has had many incarnations over time. He also happens to be a boss or final boss of any Zelda game he appears in. With this in mind, let’s explore who this guy is and why he’s so important. As a man, Ganondorf himself makes his first physical appearance in Ocarina of Time as a manifestation of the curse Demise lays upon Zelda and Link. Known by the moniker…

The time has come, one and all. After a grueling twelve weeks of competition, across 18 games and two websites, we have reached the Finals of our Best Dungeon Tournament. We’ve seen titans fall and underdogs prevail in the past several rounds, but with the dust finally settled, the true Main Eventers have revealed themselves. These could-be champions need no introduction. They have stood strong in the pantheon of Zelda dungeons since their respective debuts. And this week, they will…

 *This post will be full of spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Proceed with caution!*   “Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to.” The immortal words by Luke Skywalker’s greatest student, and greatest failure. I’m all about finding neat little correlations to The Legend of Zelda series where people might not think to look, so in this post we’re gonna take a look at two very different, yet strikingly similar, mentors from two different galaxies: Luke…

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…

Chemistry is a un-quantifiable thing when it comes to romance. You can’t really describe what it is, or point out any concrete signs of it – it’s just one of those things that you either know is there or isn’t. While The Legend of Zelda series would never be described as a romantically inclined series, most games at least offer Link one or more female characters in the game for him to interact with. Unfortunately, Twilight Princess offers up easily…

Technology and magic are often two ways to explain phenomena in fantasy worlds, and the Zelda franchise is no exception. Many unexplained mysteries abound, and perhaps one of the more interesting is the origins of the Sheikah technology found throughout Breath of the Wild. The YouTube channel Chamber of Sages sheds some light on this cryptic topic in their latest video. Their theory posits that the Goddess Flames, specifically Nayru’s, may be the power source. Both are represented as a blue gout of flame, and…

With past installments like Wind Waker and Twilight Princess receiving HD remasters over the last few years, I think it only makes sense for Skyward Sword to be considered next. At the time, the graphics looked good, but being barred by the Wii’s 720 graphic limitations causes the game to look a little blurry these days, despite its gorgeous aesthetic and colors. Then the next biggest question for a Skyward Sword remake is, of course, the motion controls. Generally speaking,…

The stakes just keep getting higher and the battles keep getting more intense as the Semi-Finals of our Best Dungeon tournament rage on. We saw two juggernauts go at it in Wednesday’s poll, as Stone Tower Temple clashed with Ancient Cistern, but today’s match-up tells an epic tale all its own. Join us as the haunted prison in the desert takes on the Calamity-striken citadel. Arbiter’s Grounds (Twilight Princess) Vs. Hyrule Castle (Breath of the Wild) The Arbiter’s Grounds have…
