The Legend of Zelda has some of the most recognizable music in video game history. The series main theme from 1986 has been used in almost every Zelda game so far, but amazingly it almost didn’t exist. Originally, Koji Kondo wanted to use “Bolero” by Maurice Ravel, but the song was still under copyright. So instead of using that song, Kondo created the now-iconic main theme for the series. This arrangement of the main theme by Game Music Collective uses…

Some of the more unique objects you encounter in the Zelda series are the Gossip Stones. In a regular encounter with one, striking a Stone causes it to bounce around and tell you the time while using a bomb on it launches it upward. However, when you get a chance to talk to a Gossip Stone while wearing the Mask of Truth in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Link can hear them truly speak. Theorist MaskedNintendoBandit recently released an intriguing…

The upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel has a lot riding on it at the moment, as the Zelda team is tasked with creating a follow-up to one of the biggest Zelda games in the past decade. They’re going to need a whole lot of help getting this one off the ground, which is why they have been searching for more help as far back as May 2018. It appears that Nintendo is still recruiting for Scenario Planner and Level…

When I first saw The Wind Waker as a kid, I absolutely loved the visuals; though many others was aghast by them. I have always believed that taking a more out-of-the-box approach with a game series is a chance worth taking for a developer. That’s why I absolutely adored the visual style of the Link’s Awakening remake when it was first unveiled earlier this year. And as it turns out, the decision behind this visual direction was made for a good…

From a lore perspective, Fi from Skyward Sword is one key elements that holds everything in the Zelda series together. Her contributions are what have led to where the Master Sword is today. And no matter the trials and tribulations the many different Link’s have faced over all three timelines, she’s always been there. It shouldn’t come as a shock then that her presence was felt during a vital moment in Breath of the Wild. Princess Zelda being told by the…

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….

It takes a lot to keep a good warrior down. And when it comes to the Gorons in Zelda, one needs a whole lot more to even remotely take them off their feet. Their main food take is rocks of all things! This Zelda race is more than capable enough to deal with any threat that comes their way, regardless of size. The question remains though: just how durable can a Goron truly be? This is something that resident Zelda…

If I was forced to pick one song to represent the wonders and joys of adventure, then I’d pick The Wind Waker‘s “Dragon Roost Island”. As the player makes their way to the first true dungeon in the game, the wonderful vistas of Dragon Roost Island will inspire awe and joy. When you combine these beautiful vistas with the rousing musical theme, you have unforgettable moments that fans can treasure forever. This new arrangement of “Dragon Roost Island” by Taylor…

I don’t know about you, but I must admit that the thought of attempting to bake something edible in the kitchen puts me in a cold sweat. I bow down and marvel at anyone that can juggle the correct ingredients, technical expertise, timings and creative artistry to pull off a show stopper cake! This video by Sugar High Score is a shining example of how to do it right with a fantastic Link’s Awakening twist! I absolutely love this Link’s…

No doubt many of us are already well into our playthroughs of Link’s Awakening on Switch. I for one am still bubbling over with excitement about the title and am overwhelmed by its cuteness. There’s no better outlet for that energy than an artistic homage, and YouTube’s Clay Snipper has given me major inspiration with her recent Link’s Awakening clay diorama tutorial. Check out her video to learn how to make a clay Link and a little island for him…
