Everyone loves a good mystery, and The Legend of Zelda certainly has more than enough of these! For example, do you believe that Kakariko Village and Windfall Island could be one and the same place? If you have always been intrigued by Kakariko village with its connections to the Sheikah, then you should watch this video by Zelda theorist Zeltik. Zeltik looks first at comparing the themes of Kakariko Village and Windfall Island. He identifies landmarks that demonstrate familiarity between…

Among the many, many new features introduced in Breath of the Wild, the latest Zelda adventure allows Link cook up meals with ingredients found within the game world. Most of the dishes that our hero concocts can make any player’s mouth water, which is why so many fans online are attempting to bring these recipes into the real world. Projects like The Legend’s Cookbook, which recently launched a successful Kickstarter, aim to faithfully recreate Breath of the Wild‘s delicious dishes,…

We’re over a month removed from E3 2019, so everyone has had some time to process the news of the upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel. Nintendo only gave us a taste of what’s to come in this new Zelda game, and fans have been hard at work deciphering every aspect of the the teaser trailer. For example, popular Zelda content creators Zeltik and Nintendo Black Crisis have teamed up to bring us their theory about the Malice that surrounds the…

Here’s a feel-good story for you. It might have taken 755 hours of blood, sweat, and tears but one grandma has finally beaten The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. At 82 years old, GramieGreat (as she is known on Reddit) received a copy of the game back in 2006. She has dipped in and out of play for the past eleven years, but has always known it was there waiting for her to complete. Proud grandson Chris (millerischris) shared that…

Hot on the trail of their freshman album, Shadow and Steel, Zelda tribute metal band Master Sword is ready to begin recording their newest album, The Final Door. They can’t do it alone, however.

There are a variety of…

Zelda’s disguise as Sheik was one of my favorite aspects of Ocarina of Time. In the guise of Sheik, Zelda shares wisdom about life, loss, and change while teaching Link six iconic ocarina songs. The interactions between Sheik and Link illustrate a growth in the relationship between Link and Zelda. This growth is beautifully represented by the theme that plays during Sheik’s appearances. This arrangement of Sheik’s theme by Amy Turk is short, but it captures the tone of the song…

No game is perhaps more controversial in the Zelda franchise than Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Constantly met with harsh criticisms — rightfully so, as many would believe — and praise alike, this game stands out more than the likes of Skyward Sword or even Breath of the Wild. It is popular opinion across much of the fanbase that this game is the worst in the franchise. As part of a series that aims to analyze every game in the…

Getting to 100k subscribers is a pretty big deal, and YouTube content creator MajorLink just passed that milestone. To commemorate the occasion, he announced his upcoming animation project called “Hero’s Purpose” with a beautiful and haunting trailer. The project aims to tell the story of the Hero of Time following the events of Majora’s Mask and leading up to his appearance before Twilight Princess, where he is seen as the Hero’s Shade. MajorLink also announced a Patreon page, where supporters…

Video games have come a long ways since the era of arcade titles like Donkey Kong and Space Invaders. Now games boast riveting storytelling, top-notch 3D graphics, and award-winning orchestral soundtracks. Yet, even in ancient times, arcade games relied on certain psychological cues to keep players engaged and machines well fed with quarters. These age-old little tricks are utilized masterfully in Breath of the Wild, allowing players to emotionally bond with the world and feel driven to help save it. Part…

Just when you think the speedrunning community has slowed down… Not content with the huge barrier skip found in The Wind Waker, or the multiple new exploits from the Skyward Sword community, the Breath of the Wild speedrunning base have discovered a new glitch which allows them to jump almost infinitely. You can see the glitch in the video below. メレシスト氏の見つけたバグですグリッチや小ネタ-glitches-and-exploitsチャンネルより#ゼルダの伝説 #BreathoftheWild #NintendoSwitch pic.twitter.com/QFsRNfuwFb — ハイラル道場 (@HyruleDojo) July 8, 2019 Dubbed “moonjumping”, the glitch, found by runner Mr. Melessist (and showcased above by @HyruleDojo)…
