First off… let me apologize to everyone. Last week, we had a second rate Guest General Manager, Gooey Fame, come in and sign a free agent to beat Mipha. Luckily for all of us though, his choice failed and you’ll never see him again! Mipha has quietly racked up 4 wins, and is close to entering the Hall of Fame, but I, Andy Spiteri, will present her with my handpicked challenger: Bryne! A Champion who looks the part, I have…

Link has always been a swordsman. Whether he’s wielding a wooden sword, a long sword, or the fabled Master Sword, our hero feels most comfortable with a blade in his hand. But as intrinsic as swordplay is to the Zelda series and its protagonist, we’re at a point in history where certain traditions can tweaked a bit. Nothing will replace the sword from Link’s repertoire; but what would happen if he was to expand his skill set with martial arts…

Super Mario RPG is an iconic spin-off to the Mario franchise, seamlessly blending traditional JRPG elements with the classic, undeniable charm of the Mario series to create a game that a lot of fans remember fondly. Since Super Mario RPG was such a critically acclaimed game, it’s a shame that more JRPG spin-offs of its kind haven’t been revisited by Nintendo. JRPGs still have a strong foothold and are pretty popular, and if Nintendo brought back this RPG experience with Zelda…

When I was a child, every time my family went to the grocery store I always begged my mother for quarters to buy some low quality toy from the machines up front. I remember those slappy sticky hands and the like, but I would have lost my mind if there were toys like the ones from Mases’ collection we are looking at today. These are some particularly cute little Phantom Hourglass figurines from Tomy. The complete set features five characters…

Hello again everyone! Welcome back to Artists of Legend! Remember, we’re posting this series every other week know, so don’t worry, thinking you missed one last week! We do, however, have another series coming out next Thursday that I’m excited to share, so keep an eye out for that! Last Time’s Challenge Last time, because of the proximity to Valentine’s Day, we asked you to create artwork of the reunion of Anju and Kafei from Majora’s Mask. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any…

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap seems to be one of those games that hasn’t been played by quite as many people, even some long-time Zelda fans; yet almost everyone who has played it loves it. With its charming graphics, interesting mechanics, and a story unique in comparison to the rest of the franchise, it’s no wonder that this game is considered one of the best 2D Zelda games. These are the two main mechanics of the game: Link’s ability to shrink down to…

The Lost Woods are an interesting feature of the Zelda series. beginning simply as a maze designed for the player to navigate through and nothing more, over the years, the Lost Woods have evolved to have significance on the story and lore of the Zelda series. No longer just a winding labyrinth of trees, the Lost Woods have become tied to Link’s journey, often serving as the resting place of the Master Sword or serving as a trial in his…

That’s right! This campaign was one of the most exciting battles in Zelda Warfare history. Even Mases and I had a pretty hard time keeping our composure at times. You are not going to want to miss this action as we continue the trading sequence, revisit Dodongo’s Cavern as an adult, and make our way into Death Mountain’s crater. You can also expect to see some Zelda Warfare staples such as magic bean rides, scarecrows, and secret grottos! Starting the…

Set to release on Nintendo Switch this spring, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition definitely looks as though it will live up to its name. Along with all of the content from both the Wii U and 3DS version of the game, this iteration will feature Breath of the Wild-themed costumes and Joy-Con share play. Perhaps I should have expected this, but I’m pleasantly surprised that Koei Tecmo went beyond simply re-releasing the Wii U version with only the additional characters from…

Hey there guys, we’ve got a just slightly different kind of mailbag this time; we have fewer questions but a few long answers. Tell me what you think about it, but either way they won’t all be like this! We talk a lot about Link, our beloved protagonist (or is he?) as well as a bit about the Four Swords games and multiplayer Zelda in general, along with Timeshift Stones and other Sheikah technology! Enjoy the mailbag!
