The Skulltula Houses in Majora’s Mask are a unique to the Zelda series in that it offers the player a collectible within a confined space and a time limit. This is drastically different from other optional collectibles in the franchise because collectibles like Gold Skulltulas are generally found all across Hyrule and can be collected at the player’s leisure. Having a specific area be a collectathon space certainly changes the feel of the collectible. Instead of searching an expansive world and solving…

Zelda Warfare is our series in which Mases and I race Ocarina of Time 3D in segmented sections. Each episode, or campaign, is worth a point. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game has won the war! Each time we add a special “Rule of Engagement” or more to shake things up even more. With our newly acquired spell, Nayru’s Love, we were hoping to get some use out of it before the war is over. That…

With the sunny season just around the corner, the folks over at Games Done Quick have just recently released the schedule of games (Zelda included) to be featured in this year’s Summer Games Done Quick. For those who don’t know, GDQ is made up of two dedicated and varied groups of speed runners who twice a year run a week-long exhibition charity stream. The Summer edition of the charity drive helps raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)….

The time has come! After two months and eighteen intense match-ups, our best soundtrack tournament has reached its climax. Twenty OST’s entered this tournament in search of fame and glory, hoping to be named the best Zelda soundtrack of all time. Some fell swiftly, and others fought triumphantly until their bitter defeat. But in the end, only two games survived the grueling trials of the tournament bracket and earned a spot in the Finals. Ocarina of Time — the Koji…

The Hyrulean Civil War marked a dark period of time in the history of Hyrule.  The people turned against each other in vicious, all-out combat, with only a smattering of stories to be told to the player.  There are a few things we know, though: The war took place before the events of Ocarina of Time and raged on for years. Preceding the war, there was peace.  The peoples of the land were content for ages, until word got out of the…

Majora’s Mask is undoubtedly one of the best 3D Zelda titles to date and as such was highly anticipated to receive the Ocarina of Time 3DS treatment years before its eventual release. Though Nintendo was coy about hinting at its development status in the years between Ocarina of Time 3DS and A Link Between Worlds, eventually we received the news many had been waiting for. Finally, in February of 2015, the remake was released. Unlike with its predecessor however, Majora’s Mask received mixed reviews from hardcore Zelda fans. One…

We have been spending a great deal of time with Ocarina of Time over on our Youtube channel. Between our series Jamie Plays Zelda and Zelda Warfare Mases and I have gotten our fair share of the game in the past few months. All of our time spent with the game has sparked many a thought about it in our minds. In our newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, we take a look at some of the classic enemies of the Legend of…

The Zora and Rito tribes are two species in Zelda games that are tied together through evolution. According to Nintendo Director and Producer, Eiji Aonuma, the Rito evolved from the Zora in Ocarina of Time. The Zora have been a really great fixture in Zelda games and their storylines were enjoyable too. I loved the Zora’s design as well as their environments, which Nintendo created to make Link’s quest all the more interesting, especially in Majoras Mask and Twilight Princess, because the adventure took place underwater. The Rito have had very interesting…
