While some might disagree, Breath of the Wild stands as one of my favorite games in the Zelda franchise. As I see it, the game is more of a story of Link and his journey than it is about the Champions or Hyrule. This incredibly animation by Mire focuses on Link and his story in Breath of the Wild. With the upbeat (if you don’t know Japanese) music of invaderT’s “Deathly Loneliness Attacks” playing in the background, Mire repeatedly uses partially moving artwork to form their animation. The art…

The piano is one of the most versatile and prolific instruments in all of music. Many musicians learn the piano at early ages before moving on to learn other instruments, which means it has become a favorite for many musicians, both classical and contemporary. This beautiful piano ballad by Daniel Trasher demonstrates the versatility and beauty of the piano. The ballad weaves together two incredible Zelda songs: the “The Song of Time” and “The Song of Storms”. Both songs are…

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launched on December 7th to rave reviews and enormous world wide sales. The game is notable for its inclusion of a staggering 74 characters and an exciting new adventure mode titled “World of Light”. The introduction trailer for “World of Light” (also its opening cutscene) is an exciting sequence with Nintendo’s most iconic characters battling a new enemy known as Galeem. In the trailer, Galeem sends rays of blinding light blasting through the land, destroying all…

The popular strategy guide company, PRIMA Games, have created a special Collector’s Edition guide for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The guide covers all 67 base characters (sorry Pirhana Plant and Joker fans, you’ll have to figure it out on your own), detailing their move sets and basic strategies. The Collector’s Edition comes as a hardback, with the full character roster poster featured on the cover. It also includes a download code for the digital version of the guide, which can be…

Nintendo made good on their promise to make a splash at The Game Awards by revealing that Joker from Persona 5 will debut as a DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Joker will be the first of five new fighters to join the roster as part of a series of downloadable Challenger Packs, with each Challenger Park including a fighter, a stage, and a collection of music. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime took the stage after the announcement…

The Game Awards 2018 will air tonight at 5:30 PM PST, as the industry comes together to honor the best and brightest games of the past year. But as much as we’re excited to see great games get recognized for their achievements, we’re equally looking forward to the huge announcements set for tonight’s event. Host Geoff Keighley has already revealed that more than ten new games will be unveiled at the show, and it seems our favorite company has something…

Zelda Month has come and gone much too quickly. But for those who might’ve missed it, PeanutButterGamer (PBG) released his final video for the month just over a week ago. PGB, who started Zelda Month in 2011, puts a twist on his traditional videos with a Zelda product review. In the video, he takes some of the most interesting Zelda items from eBay and, in usual PBG spirit, reviews them with a kooky flair and comical hijinks. Give it a…

The official Twitter account for The Legend of Zelda recently unveiled new artwork featuring Zelda characters who are rostered in the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The artwork showcases Breath of the Wild’s Link, sporting his blue Champions Tunic, alongside Toon Link and Child Link, each of whom are competing with Ganondorf, Sheik, and Princess Zelda in an attempt to reach the Triforce first. The artwork was released as part of a Nintendo-wide countdown to December 7th, when the game is released to the public and available to…

The title theme of The Wind Waker is an absolutely magical piece of music. Inspired by traditional Irish music, the theme makes excellent use of strings and harps to capture the freedom and whimsy of Link’s seafaring adventure. Admittedly, as great as it is, I never thought this tune was versatile enough to exist beyond its original genre. But count me proven wrong, because musician Ace Waters has released an amazing synth cover of The Wind Waker‘s title theme that…

The Minish Cap is a special Nintendo game. The only new Zelda game on the Game Boy Advance console, the game felt like having a grand SNES adventure in the palm of your hands. The Minish Cap was a rare example of a Nintendo sharing its series with other developers, as the game was developed by Capcom and Flagship. This remix of the Hyrule Town and Picori Festival themes was posted on OverClocked Remix by Lemonectric. The remix, called “A Bag Full…
