One cannot deny that, after walking into the Noble Canteen in Gerudo Town and promptly getting turned down for a beverage, poor Link probably felt rather disappointed, to say the very least. I mean, come on, he literally just saved you all from a rampaging monstrosity of ancient technology; doesn’t he deserve, like, one beer? Then again, though, would it be wise to serve him? He’s on an adventure, a quest to save the land and its beloved princess. And alcohol…

Koume opened her eyes to the bright flickering of flaming torches, which lined what once might have been an opulent throne room.  She groaned as she sat up; her body was so sore, almost as if she had collapsed onto hard stone under her own weight. Then, she remembered everything.  That beautiful woman, her enchanting voice, and how she claimed to be the Goddess of the Sands!  Koume twisted her neck sharply to look for Kotake, stirring awake beside her….

Hey, how’s everyone doing this week? Welcome back to another entry in our Artists of Legend series! Considering how much submitted artwork we have on standby, we’re going to be featuring more artwork each week! I hope you continue to enjoy! Now, let’s get right into everything!

The idea of Link having a family, in general, isn’t common in the Zelda series. Usually orphaned or living with his uncle or grandmother, Link’s parents are usually implied to have passed away by the time the game has already started. With the exception of Ocarina of Time (and manga appearances), Link’s mother in particular has never even been mentioned. In something of an exposition dump, the Deku Sprout reveals that Link’s mother brought him to the Kokiri Forest during…

We are creeping ever closer to the end of our Let’s Play of The Legend of Zelda: Second Quest. After having acquired the ladder in the previous episode, Mases and I were feeling pretty confident heading into level seven. This turned out to be foolish on our part. Check out the video to see our struggle! If you’d like to catch up with the series, check out this playlist! If you’d like to know when a new episode becomes available, head over to our Youtube channel and subscribe…

Hidden deep in the Lost Woods of the Woodland region lies the legendary Master Sword — the Blade of Evil’s Bane. Approaching it, the Great Deku Tree explains to us that, if a person who is deemed weak attempts to draw the sword, they will slowly lose their life. If we try to draw the sword with fewer than 13 hearts, excluding our first attempt, the sword will indeed drain our hearts to zero, resulting in death. This doesn’t exactly…

An aspect of Twilight Princess‘ story that I always enjoyed was the thematic connections between the light and dark, both in the storytelling and in the setting. It was a vital part of the experience, and part of what made it work well was when Link and Midna travel to the Twilight Realm through the Mirror of Twilight and recognizing that it deserved as much saving as Hyrule did. One thing that I always thought was a missed opportunity, though,…

Last week everyone’s feathers got ruffled when news went around about an interview with Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa. In said interview he discussed the challenges of developing consoles and how Nintendo is aiming to diversify it’s business in order to reduce risk in the changing marketplace. He mentioned their recent endeavors into film and theme parks as an example, but what really had everyone talking was the mention of continuing to develop for mobile devices. This should come as no surprise…

It’s still Monday on the west coast, which means I still have time to post this week’s Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest. So, I’m still working through my backlog of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate screenshots. And while I’ve mainly focused on the different Zelda fighters from the game, this week I’m throwing in a Zelda character that can spotted in the background of the Gerudo Valley stage. That’s right, the fiery Gerudo witch Koume is entering the spotlight in this week’s…

Andy and Taylor are back to cover a wide variety of different fans questions. On the table is Link’s Reawakening, our thoughts on Lana from Hyrule Warriors, which Nintendo 64 game needs a sequel, Horizon: Zero Dawn impressions, and… what each Zelda race smells like?? It’s another episode full of fun and shenanigans, and just because it’s Taylor’s birthday, Andy doesn’t make fun of Young Link… that much! Listen here, and get ready for next week as Andy finally makes…
