In life, we don’t all wind up where we thought we would. Some of us have led lives in directions different than what we expected and have wound up for the better. Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma, for example, started as somebody who knew next-to-nothing about video games and started in a career as a woodworker. And now, Aonuma helps lead one of the biggest franchises in video game history. The folks over at Did You Know Gaming? recently produced…

There have been a number of opinions shared about Link’s Awakening for Switch since its release in September this year. Most reviews were positive, a few were negative, and some were middle of the road. However, it’s likely there were none quite like this one from NormalBoots! At the beginning of November, NormalBoots uploaded a Drunk History style explanation of Link’s Awakening. The inebriated storytellers don’t dive into the history of the game like the allusion to Drunk History might…

It can be argued that one of the most exciting moments in Breath of the Wild was the aerial assault on Divine Beast Vah Medoh. With the heroic Rito warrior Teba, Link soars into an intense airborne battle in order to destroy Vah Medoh’s cannons. The sequence is a visual treat, especially with the clouds and falling snowflakes providing a beautiful backdrop to the fierce conflict. I think the musical theme for this sequence is one of the most dramatic…

Link’s Awakening, no matter which version you’re referring to, is considered by many to be one of the more underrated titles in the Zelda series. The score, the characters, and even the story itself all hold up to this day. With the recent release of the Switch remake, it’s only fitting that we take a look at some interesting facts about the title. All of this Link’s Awakening trivia comes to us today from the video game fact-collecting folks over at…

Breath of the Wild is considered to be one of the most beautiful and scenic games of the decade. With such an amazing landscape, the game deserves a soundtrack worthy of its grandeur. Fortunately, composers Manaka Kataoka, Yasuaki Iwata, and Hajime Wakai paired each inspiring location with a unique and wonderful musical theme. The Hateno Village theme song is a great example of music that illustrates Breath of the Wild‘s splendor. It is one of many theme songs that exemplifies…

Animator ScottFalco has made a name for himself with his animated parodies of well-known speedruns. His videos showcase the almost game-breaking madness of some speedrun mechanics, and his recent Link’s Awakening DX parody is no exception. Not only does it poke fun at the strange characters and enemies in the game, it also provides a shockingly accurate representation of the absurd Dog House Glitch that speedrunners use to skip their way to the final boss. I’ve never seen a Link’s…

If you were to look at a Zelda-centric list titled “Places That Go Bump in the Night”, we’re pretty sure that the Lost Woods would rank high up on that list. The woods are not only mysterious, but getting lost there will leave you with a grisly fate. Link has been fortunate enough to survive his time in the Lost Woods in each game, while others haven’t been so lucky. It’s because of these qualities that a couple of popular…

Apart from being a beloved actor and comedian, the late Robin Williams was also an avid fan of The Legend of Zelda. Recall for a moment the 2011 commercial for Ocarina of Time HD featuring both Robin and his daughter, Zelda. We are reminded, as Robin had mentioned in previous interviews, that he named his daughter after the princess — and the series’ namesake — because of the love he had for the games. It was a sweet, touching moment,…

Spirit Tracks is a game with a complicated legacy. Some fans absolutely love the game while others believe it is a lesser Zelda experience. It seems like the only thing that most fans agree on is that the game’s music is incredible. From the opening title screen to the end credits, the game has a variety of thrilling and beautiful melodies. While Spirit Tracks has many great songs, the “Realm Overworld” theme is by far the most iconic song from…

The spooky season may be over, but the Zelda season is in full swing when the calendar turns from October to November as “Zelda Month” begins. Born under YouTube content creator PeanutButterGamer, or PBG, in 2011 as a celebration for the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, “Zelda Month” has become a staple part of many fans’ experience. Each run from PBG consists of about four videos, or one per week, focusing on a myriad of things, from…
