Sometimes a game comes along in a series that stands out. It is a paragon of the elements in the series and on a level untouchable by all the others. It is memorable, it is unique, and it is absolutely the most awful version of the best thing ever. That’s right. I’m talking bottom of the barrel bad. We all have a game in the Zelda series that comes to mind when thinking of the greatest, but what about the…

Throughout Skyward Sword, Link meets many surface dwelling allies. One of these allies is a race of burrowing moles who help us progress through the Earth Temple, and even help us escape the Bokoblin Base on our return to Eldin. After this, though, we don’t really see them again, in game, or in any other title. The question is, what happened to them? Of course, we’re not going to get any solid answers from Nintendo, so we’ll have to make do…

Music is a defining feature of The Legend of Zelda series, so much so that it becomes its own character. The soundscape molds Hyrule around Link and his friends, giving character to those he interacts with and helps the player connect with them on an emotional level. The awe-striking music from The Legend of Zelda played a significant role in why I chose to pursue Bachelor’s Degree in music, and it is why I have decided to take an in-depth look at different tracks…

Greetings, Zelda fans! The Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest is on fire, so let’s maintain the heat with a brand new image. We took a look at a still from the Breath of the Wild sequel reveal last week, so we wanted to highlight another upcoming Zelda game with this week’s contest. Link’s Awakening comes out for Switch on September 20th, and it’s an adorable, adorable game. The character’s are just so expressive; just take a look at the scene below….

When asking a Zelda fan to picture a map of Hyrule, chances are they are able to accumulate a variety of maps from across the series’s many iterations of the kingdom. The geographical layout of the Hylian landscape has followed a similar pattern since the very first game and nearly every time since that a new location would be introduced. Going beyond the recurring locations such as Death Mountain and Lake Hylia, these landmarks seem to find themselves in similar…

When the subject of The Legend of Zelda comes up, the first thing that enters my head isn’t our hero, clad in green.  It isn’t the Demon King, Ganondorf; it isn’t even Princess Zelda herself!  No, instead my mind spins straight to the lore that intertwines this wonderful series.  I can’t deny it — Nintendo made it work.  Just look at the timeline that they put together; I’ll admit it, I am a fan!  There is so much information, such…

Fantasy and science fiction stories love monsters. Whether it’s a fire breathing dragon or a post-nuclear mutant, these sibling genres embrace the challenges and barriers that monsters often represent. Unsurprisingly, The Legend of Zelda has used iconic monster tropes to great acclaim with enormous spiders and glutinous blob-like Chu. With this in mind, what film or television monster would you want to see Link battle? Cinema and television are rich with massive creatures for Link to slay, whether its a…

We are now aware that the sequel to Breath of the Wild is in development, and this has left fans with theories as to how the story is going to play out.  A great example of this would be the possibility that Princess Zelda might actually be a playable character!  Today though, I want to skip these awesome theories and talk about some features of the Nintendo Switch that could help make the next game incredible. I think that a…

“Ladies and gentlemen,” the booming voice of the Sage of Fire, Huron, thundered out over the crowd. “Our next competitor is one of your own! From right here in Castletown, Osmond!” The thunderous applause and cheers welcomed the suddenly uneasy Osmond into the arena. He politely nodded his head and raised his hand. For years he’d been one of those excited members, and he’d never stopped to consider what it was like on the other side. As he made his…
