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…

Have you ever seen one of those impressive fan animated recreations of iconic Zelda scenes? Or have you seen really incredible Lord of the Rings-esque cinematography used in a Zelda fan film? Well, this is a little different than any of those. This animated summary of Ocarina of Time by TerminalMontage is an incredibly humorous and wrought with references to a bevy of Zelda troupes. The video encompasses only the child portion of the game, ending when Ganondorf enters the Temple…

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,…

Collecting games and associated memorabilia is a hobby of mine. I’ve been known to impulse buy a plush Bloodborne doll or order a Link tunic hoodie on a whim. 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. The happy animated styles always make me wistful for a bowl of cereal and Saturday morning cartoons. And I feel the exact same way every time I see the…

As the Nintendo Switch library grows, so do its owners’ collections of game cartridges. Standard game cases get the job done, but how about adding a unique Zelda flare to your storage setup? Look no further than this handcrafted Bokoblin Chest Game Card Case. This creative case is available in white, grey, pink, and chocolate (with sprinkles!). Not only can you use it to store four Switch cartridges and two microSD cards, but the chest can double as a ring…

As a convention artist, I understand the devastation so many artists are feeling this year. With most shows cancelled, there’s a lot of uncertainty for artists. One of my absolute favorite aspects of selling at conventions is the opportunity to explore. A robust Artist’s Alley is like walking through a dream. I get to meet new artists, hopefully forge friendships, and pick up plenty of art to take home with me! Sadly, with no shows to look forward to, I…

One of the more well-known songs in the Twilight Princess soundtrack has to be “Midna’s Lament”. A song that perfectly encapsulates the feelings felt when Midna is almost taken away from Link. Most covers of this song  feature an almost somber tone that reminiscent of the original score, but sometimes there’s that cover that switches the mood just enough to feel like something different. That’s the feeling I get when hearing Husky by the Geek’s rock cover of “Midna’s Lament”….

Back in 2017, game collectible manufacturer iam8bit, along with the Materia Collective, released an hour-long arrangement album based on Ocarina of Time called Hero of Time. At the time of its release, this officially licensed two-vinyl LP collection was perfect for fans of Koji Kondo’s iconic score, but it has unfortunately been sold out for some time. Luckily, however, Zelda fans now have another chance to pick up this impressive fan album, as online retailer Zavvi is restocking Hero of Time…

Tabletop RPG’s have seen a significant uptick in popularity in recent years. From variations on the traditional Dungeons & Dragons of old, to games that are created from the ground up, there’s something for every type of gamer out there. Some homebrew versions go so far as to recreate video game systems and storylines, and yes, many have created versions around the Zelda series. One of these games was recently featured as part of Linktober’s Zelda Creator Con. Heroes of…
