There’s a moment in the Breath of the Wild when you feel like you’ve seen or heard everything. Every time this happens, the game rewards you with something amazing and unexpected. For me, that moment of discovery is exemplified by the Night Riding theme from Breath of the Wild. You’re riding in the darkness, under the stars and moon, and you hear the unfamiliar song blossom into the iconic The Legend of Zelda theme. It’s a moment that reminds you…

The Divine Beasts from Breath of the Wild were the evolution of dungeons in terms of both scope and scale. With only four beasts in total, each one needed to be impressive inside and out. While I didn’t encounter Vah Rudania until late in my Breath of the Wild experience, it left a huge impression on me. Hanging over the Death Mountain caldera, Vah Rudania serves as a highlight for the epic adventure. The music for Vah Rudania is also…

I love cosplay, and I know I am not alone. It’s one of the most popular forms of art across all different kinds of fandoms. To see so many people put their talents and hours into bringing life to beloved characters is never anything short of amazing. And not only do these costumes reflect what we see in game, but every time one comes to fruition, it’s unique, the artist’s interpretation of what they see and feel. So, let’s take…

What would it look like if the goddess Amaterasu from Okami and Wolf Link from Twilight Princess could meet? The answer to that question lies within a stunning fan art made by YouTube user Crazy-Doom, who recently uploaded a video showcasing their speed-paint of the meeting. The end result shows the two wolves’ noses almost touching each other, with the two most iconic symbols of their respective games on the bottom of the picture. This crossover art is simply amazing, and, hopefully,…

Okami is one of the best games inspired by The Legend of Zelda series. Clover Studio’s epic adventure even has an incredible soundtrack that matches anything found in the best Zelda games. One of Okami‘s best songs is “Reset,” which is plated at a pivotal moment in the game’s long story. The emotional resonance of the tune makes it a powerful song for those who have played the game. However, it is also a well-crafted and memorable enough score to…

As someone who has very little experience with art, watching an artist work feels like watching magic. There is a sense of excitement that goes along with seeing a piece of art being brought into existence. One of the best ways to see the time, effort, and thought that goes into a piece of art is to watch a time lapse or speed painting. This allows the viewer to see all the steps and layers that go into creating a…

Water is a vital element of life. More than 75% of this planet is covered with water. Because of its importance, water plays a key role in our lives, communities, and our stories. In The Legend of Zelda series, Lake Hylia is a key location in both Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, a serene lake with beautiful, nourishing water. This medley by Medllix combines two crucial water-themed songs: Serenade of Water from Ocarina of Time and Lake Hylia from Twilight Princess….

Dragon Roost Island is one of the most iconic locations in The Wind Waker. The volcanic home of the flying Rito clan is one of the first locations that Link visits in his long journey, and one of the most beautiful. With this in mind, it is fitting that the Dragon Roost Island theme is lively and summons feelings of adventure and wonder. This orchestral cover of Dragon Roost Island by TriFantasy does a wonderful job of capturing the energy…

One of the most exciting things about medleys and remixes are the ways that different musicians are allowed to tweak and redefine the way that we hear songs. Take this OverClocked Remix by Rozovian as an example. While there are many traditional remixes of music from the Legend of Zelda series, which reflect the sounds found in the original games, this remix uses electronic sounds to great effect. This medley includes songs from several Zelda games including the Main Theme (Breath…

When Nintendo released Ocarina of Time in November 1998, they could not have possibly known the impact they would have, both on their fans and on their own company. They had no way to see just how much their newest addition to their series about a boy, a princess, and an ultimate evil would be loved for decades to come. Fast forward twenty years, and this game has hardly lost shine, still reigning as one of the most influential titles in…
