These games include The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, the original Game Boy version of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and a Zelda-centric version of the Game & Watch classic Vermin. Rather than hitting moles like in the original game, this new iteration of Vermin sees…

It’s one of the most iconic songs from the early years of The Legend of Zelda franchise. Players gather the three pendants, draw the Master Sword, and face down Agahnim only to find that the adventure is just getting started. Link finds himself atop the golden Pyramid of Power, and that’s when the player hears it–the iconic song “Dark World Theme”. The feeling of seeing the overworld transform is matched by the legendary theme music of the corrupted landscape; it’s a…

Warning: This video contains spoilers for Skyward Sword HD. In August, we covered the start of a video analysis series on Skyward Sword HD’s dungeons. The creator of those episodes, CaptBurgerson, has returned with a new series called Zelda Character Study, and his debut episode features an analysis video that studies the character of Ghirahim, the game’s primary antagonist. Ghirahim has proven to be a popular character in the Zelda fanbase. The sly and posturing demon even managed to take…

Last December, we put out a post encouraging our readers to vote on a meticulously detailed Hyrule Castle LEGO set that had been submitted to the LEGO Ideas program. Taking its inspiration from Ocarina of Time, the design was beautifully done and was ultimately able to accrue enough votes to be considered in this year’s official review. However, after many months, LEGO has officially rejected the Legend of Zelda design among various other submissions. Out of 57 finalists, eight fan…

In honor of the BlackMilk x The Legend of Zelda collection being released this past week, Nintendo Minute hosts Kit and Krysta return to Breath of the Wild in the spirit of fashion. Competing in a friendly “fashion challenge” in the most recent episode, they take turns creating different combinations of the many clothes in Link’s inventory. Some of the themes that they challenged each other with were what Link would wear to a party and what Link would wear to…

Welcome back, one and all to the best part of the year—Linktober! All month long, I’ll be combing the Internet, taking in the sights, and bringing you a tasty charcuterie board of curated art. This week, we’re looking at days 7-13 of the Linktober calendars. While last week, we saw quite a few three-dimensional pieces, this week we’re focusing on illustrations drawn with traditional media. That means, gauche, ink, markers, pastels, watercolors, and so much more! Before we get started,…

Skyward Sword has one of the most underrated soundtracks in the Zelda series. The Wii title was the first Zelda game to have fully orchestrated music, and that music has a majestic quality because of the orchestration. The score is littered with wonderful tunes that set the tone for a grand and exceptional adventure. Overall, the recent release of Skyward Sword HD has given many artists and musicians an opportunity to revisit the game and its wonderful music. It is…

The Legend of Zelda is well known for its iconic music. Not only does it compliment the gameplay experience, but series soundtracks are often great for independent listening. The franchise’s plethora of instantly recognizable, catchy tunes are perfectly suited to serve as the backing tracks to studying, working, or simply relaxing. Many artists have used these memorable pieces as the inspiration for lofi remixes to fulfill this very role. Another new collection of lofi Nintendo music is on the horizon, with…

Arabic-speaking players may lack official support to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in their language, but thanks to a new mod, that may no longer be a problem. Thanks to a team of dedicated translators and modders calling themselves Eternal Dream Arabization, there is now a complete Arabic translation of all the text in the game, including the logo itself. Additionally, as Arabic runs from right to left, the team had to reverse the flow of the…
