Koroks are small forest spirits that, according to The Wind Waker, are the evolution of the Kokiri species introduced in Ocarina of Time and can be found anywhere and everywhere in Breath of the Wild. At first, these creatures can seem…

Hey there, guys. It’s been a long time, but I’ve finally got a new mailbag. This week we’ve got a surprising variety of questions, considering there are two major Zelda games I never talked about after they came out. But hey! We’ll focus on Breath of the Wild a bit in this video. I hope you guys enjoy it after all this time! And if you’re curious, explanations for my absence will be up soon here.

But instead he kept quiet and…

In the latest episode of the Hyrule Compendium, Gooey and I discuss what some of our favorite dungeons in Twilight Princess were. Overall, while Twilight Princess had some of the most linear dungeons in the series, we felt it was the pinnacle of the traditional Zelda formula for dungeon creation.
