It’s kind of a shame we couldn’t pet dogs or even pick them up in Breath of the Wild. Perhaps in an attempt to make up for this, a modder named SaltySalty has created a Shiba Inu Mod, aptly named Chonky Doggo. I believe the mod applies a skin over the Giant Horse, much like the Thomas the Tank Engine mod, allowing Link to ride this large companion throughout Hyrule! Check out the video above to see the adorable dog…

A principle element in Skyward Sword‘s plot was the Gate of Time. Control of this portal to Hyrule’s distant past was critical to the plans of both Ghirahim and Impa. Whichever side proved victorious would irrevocably alter the destiny of the kingdom. Besides its lore implications, the Gate also plays host to a collage design of Zelda series symbolism. Besides a large central depiction of the Triforce, each of the golden triangle’s virtues are represented in the form of the…

Sometimes it’s a song that we hear that reminds of when we were young, and other times it’s just a song that makes us think of happy times. Songs can even put our brains in a state of focus that helps us study. The music from The Legend of Zelda certainly is no stranger to any of these situations. Many of the songs are instantly recognizable…

This short film by RwanLink digs deeper into Zelda’s state of mind following the events of Breath of the Wild, and shows the circumstances under which Link and Zelda find themselves down in that cave. Let this fan film tide you over before Nintendo’s E3 presentation where,…
