The animation that preceded it, entitled “A New Cycle”, depicted Link and Zelda exploring mysterious caves before encountering a form of Ganon. The animation visualized commonly-held theories about the upcoming sequel, the practice carrying over to this recent animation as well. In particular, this new animation focuses on Princess Zelda and her desire to…

Many have criticized Breath of the Wild for being more of a concept game rather than a plot-driven adventure like past Zelda games, with some describing the open world as an empty shell rather than a dynamic place. Whether that critique is fair or not, modder Waikuteru has used that “empty shell” to bring back some of the series’ most iconic places. The modder recently dropped two new projects, adding Skyward Sword’s legendary Sandship and Ocarina of Time’s fabled Lon Lon Ranch…

The Legend of Zelda and Castlevania are two of the most iconic franchises in videos games. Each series has produced genre defining games throughout the past thirty years, though the Zelda series has been much healthier in the past decade. One theme that connects these two franchises is great music, with both franchises featuring a plethora of tunes that fans almost instantly recognize. This fascinating arrangement by GLASYS combines songs from both The Legend of Zelda and Castlevania franchises. The remix…

The Great Fairy Fountain in any Zelda game is usually a void hidden deep within the caves of Hyrule. While these fountains are mysterious, the music that plays when you first enter such areas always seem to make you feel at ease. That unique sense of relaxation is perfectly exemplified by the cover we’re listening to today. This improvisational cover of the Great Fairy Fountain theme comes to us from Ichika Nito, Siros Vaziri, and Felix Martin. A unique collaboration,…

When I’m not able to play video games, having these things is a simple reminder of the joy they can bring. With Breath of the Wild embracing a new era of technology in Hyrule, toys and gadgets were bound to become more advanced. Let’s be honest, Link is carrying around a…

There is something that is effortlessly charming and endearing about Link’s Awakening on Switch. The animation pops off the screen, transporting players to the vibrant world of Koholint. I would love an animated show in style of Link’s Awakening… Or The Minish Cap… Or, really, any of Nintendo’s superb cartoon designs.
