LEGO’s have been a toy staple for decades. Whether you played with thousands of plastic bricks yourself, saw them at a friend’s house, or perused the varied sets at a store, you’ve no doubt encountered the famous blocks at some point in your childhood. The brilliance of LEGO’s lies in their simplicity and potential for customization. If you can think of it, you can probably find a way to build it. The simple brilliance of LEGO’s can be seen in…

“Kass’ Theme” is easily one of my favorite scores from Breath of the Wild. While peacefully playing his instrument, Kass recounts the tales from long ago that were taught to him by his master. Not much else is really known about this mysterious Rito, but we do know that he can play one mean accordion. And from what I hear throughout this recent cover is another wonderfully-strewn tale. This upbeat jazz-style remix of “Kass’ Theme” comes to us from remix artist…

This year’s remake of Link’s Awakening has reminded many of us of just how much we appreciate Zelda‘s first handheld adventure. After grabbing Link’s sword on Koholint Island’s shoreline, the familiar Zelda Overworld theme kicks in (albeit sounding a bit different), and with it, comes the familiar sense of adventure. That sensation has been reawakened within the fanbase, as we can see with a new metal cover of the game’s Overworld theme. This new cover, performed by Jules Conroy (a.k.a FamilyJules), does not…

With Halloween just around the corner, there are a wide variety of places to go for horror-themed thrills. From watching monster movies, to carving Jack-o-Lanterns, to of course playing scary games like Slender or Silent Hill, there’s no shortage of scares. Aside from a few places in the Zelda universe, the series is not one that comes straight to mind as horrific or scary. However, sometimes there are places that fit the bill perfectly. It’s not often we get a…

Link’s Awakening‘s opening sees Link wake up in Marin and Tarin’s home and enter the prosperous town of Mabe Village. This village provides players a first taste of what Koholint Island has to offer in terms of unique citizens. Likewise, the music that fills your ears in Mabe Village provides a sampling of the game’s entire amazing score. With the remix we’re listening to today, the tune now sounds more like Link is visiting a block party. This reworked version…

Being whisked away to a mysterious tropical paradise may sound like a great time, but for Link in Link’s Awakening, such an adventure wasn’t really so great. His journey across the surreal Koholint Island was nothing short of a challenging and epic quest. An epic quest, mind you, that also gave us an amazing soundtrack. Take the “Ballad of the Wind Fish” for instance, which remains a highlight of Link’s Awakening‘s iconic score. This Electro cover of “Ballad of the Wind Fish”…

Today marks the release of Overwatch on Nintendo Switch. And while this news may not normally be relevant on a Zelda website, a recent fan-made trailer has us excited for a dream crossover between The Legend of Zelda and Blizzard’s popular team shooter. Moon Studios’ visual effects artist Etienne POV recently unveiled an exciting what-if trailer featuring Link as a guest character in Overwatch. Based on a concept by Shiro Games’ Jeremy Vitry and a follow-up 3D render by Super…

The Legend of Zelda has some of the most recognizable music in video game history. The series main theme from 1986 has been used in almost every Zelda game so far, but amazingly it almost didn’t exist. Originally, Koji Kondo wanted to use “Bolero” by Maurice Ravel, but the song was still under copyright. So instead of using that song, Kondo created the now-iconic main theme for the series. This arrangement of the main theme by Game Music Collective uses…

Some of the more unique objects you encounter in the Zelda series are the Gossip Stones. In a regular encounter with one, striking a Stone causes it to bounce around and tell you the time while using a bomb on it launches it upward. However, when you get a chance to talk to a Gossip Stone while wearing the Mask of Truth in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Link can hear them truly speak. Theorist MaskedNintendoBandit recently released an intriguing…

From a lore perspective, Fi from Skyward Sword is one key elements that holds everything in the Zelda series together. Her contributions are what have led to where the Master Sword is today. And no matter the trials and tribulations the many different Link’s have faced over all three timelines, she’s always been there. It shouldn’t come as a shock then that her presence was felt during a vital moment in Breath of the Wild. Princess Zelda being told by the…
