Fi is one of the more divisive characters in the Zelda series. I love the her design, which references the Fairy Queen from The Wind Waker. Additionally, Fi’s look includes elements of the Master Sword and its distinct color palette. Despite her great design, though, some players’ connection to Fi is undermined by her role in gameplay. Fi is constantly popping up to give the player mundane or obvious information, which can get on the players’ nerves and slow down…

Heroic music fills the airspace, Link soars down from the sky, and–what?!? The surprise ending of this animated short from DeozWorld will have you laughing out loud. By now the trailer for the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been widely viewed and is very recognizable. The familiarity of what is supposed to happen in the trailer makes this comedic short all the more entertaining, particularly with its references to aspects of the 2017 game….

If there is anything I learned from the music courses I took in college and my brief stint in trying to compose video game soundtracks, it’s that music is complicated. The entire process is a unique mix of both creative freedom and the logical underpinnings of music theory. Even as someone who doesn’t fancy themselves a composer, I find joy in understanding music and why it makes me feel a certain way. This comes double for orchestrations I hold dear,…

Skyward Sword is on all of our minds again following its recent release on the Switch. This rang true for Adam from North of the Border Craftworks, who channeled his anticipatory energy into meticulously recreating Skyloft in miniature form for his Tiny Nerdy Thing series. In his step-by-step video of the creation process, Adam demonstrates every tiny detail that went into making this impressive little sculpture. Those looking for a new art project or simply want to admire the art…

Throughout the Zelda series, Fairy Fountains have served as places of respite and relaxation. Often concealed underground or within dank caves, these hidden grottos tend to be filled with fluttering, friendly faces, while maintaining a sense of mystery and obscurity. The difficult balance of those feelings has been struck perfectly by this vocal and harp cover of the “Fairy Fountain” theme, sung by Jillian Aversa with Harpsona accompanying on harp. Iconic and instantly recognizable, “Fairy Fountain” has appeared in the majority…

Link’s Awakening is one of the most charming, unique, and memorable games in the series. Even before its 2019 facelift for the Switch, it was routinely ranked in some people’s top handful of games in the series. Part of the game’s charm comes from the characters and locations across Koholint Island, and one notable character is Old Man Ulrira, who will talk to Link over the telephone at various spots across the island. You can visit him in his actual…

The artist community build around the Zelda series is truly incredible. Whether it is musical covers/arrangements, zines, hand-made goods, or an assortment of other creative projects, there is no end to the brilliant work done by people who love the series. Going along with art related to the series, I also enjoy artists’ time lapses and speed paints related to their Zelda pieces. As someone who has always admired art, but never been any good at it, it is incredible…

As fans, we each have our own set of tastes when it comes to gauging the quality of an experience. In terms of the Zelda series, that means there will be some games that we like and some we don’t. But I think the majority of fans are in agreement that there have been some good soundtracks across franchise’s past thirty-five years. Music has been an integral part of Zelda games, as it carries the tone for each locations and character. This tone assists…

It is no secret that few Zelda games have been as off-formula as the series’ second game. Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is nowadays widely considered a black-sheep for its side-scrolling gameplay and punishing difficulty. Being born at least seven years after this game was released, I first encountered Zelda II as part of a bundle pack on the Gamecube known as The Legend of Zelda Collector’s Edition. Personally, I didn’t care for the game too much at the…
