While some might disagree, Breath of the Wild stands as one of my favorite games in the Zelda franchise. As I see it, the game is more of a story of Link and his journey than it is about the Champions or Hyrule. This incredibly animation by Mire focuses on Link and his story in Breath of the Wild. With the upbeat (if you don’t know Japanese) music of invaderT’s “Deathly Loneliness Attacks” playing in the background, Mire repeatedly uses partially moving artwork to form their animation. The art…

The piano is one of the most versatile and prolific instruments in all of music. Many musicians learn the piano at early ages before moving on to learn other instruments, which means it has become a favorite for many musicians, both classical and contemporary. This beautiful piano ballad by Daniel Trasher demonstrates the versatility and beauty of the piano. The ballad weaves together two incredible Zelda songs: the “The Song of Time” and “The Song of Storms”. Both songs are…

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launched on December 7th to rave reviews and enormous world wide sales. The game is notable for its inclusion of a staggering 74 characters and an exciting new adventure mode titled “World of Light”. The introduction trailer for “World of Light” (also its opening cutscene) is an exciting sequence with Nintendo’s most iconic characters battling a new enemy known as Galeem. In the trailer, Galeem sends rays of blinding light blasting through the land, destroying all…

Zelda Month has come and gone much too quickly. But for those who might’ve missed it, PeanutButterGamer (PBG) released his final video for the month just over a week ago. PGB, who started Zelda Month in 2011, puts a twist on his traditional videos with a Zelda product review. In the video, he takes some of the most interesting Zelda items from eBay and, in usual PBG spirit, reviews them with a kooky flair and comical hijinks. Give it a…

The title theme of The Wind Waker is an absolutely magical piece of music. Inspired by traditional Irish music, the theme makes excellent use of strings and harps to capture the freedom and whimsy of Link’s seafaring adventure. Admittedly, as great as it is, I never thought this tune was versatile enough to exist beyond its original genre. But count me proven wrong, because musician Ace Waters has released an amazing synth cover of The Wind Waker‘s title theme that…

The Minish Cap is a special Nintendo game. The only new Zelda game on the Game Boy Advance console, the game felt like having a grand SNES adventure in the palm of your hands. The Minish Cap was a rare example of a Nintendo sharing its series with other developers, as the game was developed by Capcom and Flagship. This remix of the Hyrule Town and Picori Festival themes was posted on OverClocked Remix by Lemonectric. The remix, called “A Bag Full…

When I think of stereotypical 80’s music, one of the first things to come to mind is some sick synthesizer beats. While synthesizers have been used before and after the 80’s, the music machines truly obtained iconic status during that decade. It’s exciting to see all the different versions of “Gerudo Valley” that different artists have arranged/created. This incredible “80s version” of “Gerudo Valley” was created by YouTube musician Holder. This synthesized rearrangement is an incredible piece of music with…

It’s been twenty years since the release of Ocarina of Time, and the outcry of support and love for the classic title has been overwhelming. Many fans and critics have taken time out of their busy schedules to write articles, create videos, and post comments about how they love the game and how much it has them inspired them. In honor of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time‘s 20th anniversary, musician David Erick Ramos has joined forces with UCLA’s…

Mipha was one of the most interesting new characters from Breath of the Wild. The Zora Champion was a gentle soul, who carried a deep affection for Link in her heart. In flashbacks, Mipha is seen trying to help those around her, whether it is healing Link’s wounds or supporting Zelda through her emotional struggles. Mipha exemplifies the simple kindness and support that people need in their everyday lives. This cover of Mipha’s theme by Sam Griffin Guitar (of Super Guitar…

Free running, also known as parkour, has gained quite a bit of popularity in gaming over the years, and Breath of the Wild especially has made great use of it. Being able to scale practically anything makes for easy traversal of the game’s massive overworld. And with YouTuber Ronnie Street Runs, that same parkour has been brought to life. Decked out in Link’s Champion Tunic and even sporting a nice looking Sheikah Slate, this free run video shows several real…
