Skyward Sword is a pretty divisive game among Zelda fans; typically fans either love it or hate it. But regardless of the varied opinions on the game, one thing that can be agreed upon is that an HD remake of Skyward Sword for the Switch could be a good idea. In the most recent entry of our Hyrule Compendium series, Gooey and Mases each describe how a potential Skyward Sword HD should take form. They discuss improvements to the motion…

Welcome back to another round of Zelda Runners! The main topic of discussion this falls once again to shenanigans concerning Ocarina of Time, which has fallen victim to yet another game changing glitch. There are also plenty of tournaments and events in the running for the next few weeks, and I’ll also be breaking down some of the manipulations found in The Minish Cap. Sound exciting? Let’s get started then!   Now Playing Yes, it’s happened again. The Ocarina of Time Any% category has once…

Since kicking off in 2016, Akira Himekawa’s Twilight Princess manga has proven to be a worthy adaptation of my all-time favorite video game. Rather than merely re-tell the original journey shot-for-shot, the manga complements the game in a way that only the best adaptations can. Some of the more vague elements of Twilight Princess’ story are expounded upon, while side characters are given more opportunities to shine. Even Link and Midna’s relationship is made more endearing, thanks in part to…

Greetings, and get strapped in because we have a barn burner of an episode! We are following suit and making a companion piece for our good friends Mases and Gooey’s definitive ranking of Twilight Princess and offering our own, Champions’ Cast take on the game. We rank the game based off categories like music, story, dungeons, items, world, and more! You do not wanna miss this one! How many times can Spiteri call Twilight Princess ugly in a single episode?…

It feels like it has been so long since we’ve received any updates on the Breath of the Wild sequel. I feel like we should get a proper Nintendo Direct soon, and with it, hopefully we will see something on this highly anticipated game! In the meantime, this is a perfect time frame for speculation on the game’s mechanics because there are so many options that could be on the table. One that has been on my mind lately is…

Hey there, all you Zelda fans! What say you to another exciting edition of ZD’s Caption Contest? Last week, my wife and I started watching gameplay videos of House House’s Untitled Goose Game. This quirky stealth game puts players in the role of a mischievous goose dead-set on causing mayhem in a small town. And since the game’s release, thanks to the creativity of the internet, this goose has somehow traveled into other games. Last Week’s Contest: The question I…

The Triforce of Courage grants each incarnation of Link with the bravery necessary to vanquishing evil and saving Hyrule from destruction. Link’s courage manifests itself in different ways throughout the series as well. Whether it’s Link venturing to the unexplored Surface to rescue Zelda in Skyward Sword, or Link turning back time to save Termina within three days in Majora’s Mask, each iteration of Link has courage that is a core component of his personality and his actions. That’s all…

The Zelda series is no stranger to minigames. From fishing to musical mimicking, there are many methods through which these games test our less adventurous skills, rewarding us with Rupees, Heart Pieces, or other goodies. These games within a game have varied wildly in difficulty, but which is the most difficult? From personal experience (a.k.a. from someone who struggles with basic puzzles), there have been quite a few frustrating minigames in my playthroughs of various Zelda titles. One particular minigame that sticks…

Sharp cricked his neck as he turned to see his younger brother Flat, who had just burst through the entrance of their living quarters in Hyrule Castle.  Flat’s cheeks were flushed with red and he was desperately heaving air into his lungs.  He bent over and placed his delicate hands on his knees in an effort to catch his breath. Sharp hooted with mirth at the sight of his brother. “Dear Flat, I don’t believe I’ve seen you out of…

When I discovered the Tetraforce theory, I felt as though I had stumbled upon an old, unattended magic shoppe obscured by ivy in a forgotten alleyway. It was like I was being beckoned to read from a spellbook opened to an accursed page. I was deep in the Zelda Wiki and it warned in bold letters that this was a non-canon theory, which just piqued my interest further. The Tetraforce is as compelling a conspiracy theory as they come. It’s…
