Fortunately for fans who want to know more about the remake, the Youtube channel GameXplain has posted an extensive question and answer video about the upcoming game. While the some aspects of the game are still shrouded behind the…

I’ve covered The Legend of Zelda news for almost five years now, and in that time, I’ve seen more rumors than I can possibly hope to count. Something about Nintendo’s tentpole fantasy series attracts off-the-wall predictions, unverified leaks, and outright hoaxes, as fans clamor for and cling to any new information on the next Zelda adventure. And that’s one reason why this job is so much fun! Seeing the passion of the fanbase explode with each new release cycle fuels…

I know for a fact that most of us are genuinely surprised when we learn that somebody famous from another form of media is actually an avid gamer. But many musicians, actors, and even professional sports athletes kick back and relax with some good, old-fashioned gaming. Speaking of athletes, we have one here who nobody is ready for… to perform a Zelda cover of all things. WWE Superstar and former SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Asuka recently launched her own gaming…

Zelda fans are less than one week away from the release of Link’s Awakening on Nintendo Switch. Over the past few weeks, there have been many previews and trailers released. Overall, these previews have given viewers a better look at the remake including its visual design, features, and soundtrack. One way for Zelda fans to prep themselves for the remake is to listen to covers and new arrangements of songs from Link’s Awakening. Fortunately, the music community has showed a…

At the tail end of the pre-Link’s Awakening hype train comes a new teaser trailer for an upcoming Zelda fan film titled “The Legend of ZELDA”. The teaser opens with awe-inspiring wide shots of various mountain ranges, followed by mysterious shots of multiple characters from throughout the series. Directed by Josh Mason of Mason Studios, this film also features the work of award winning cinematographer James Puckett (Delta Crossings, Finality) and legendary makeup artist A.G. Howard. A.G. Howard’s work may…

The Zonai are one of the more mysterious tribes that inhabit the lands of Hyrule in Breath of the Wild…. or used to inhabit the land in this case. Those in the game who can really explain who these people were are few and far between. The only clues left around that confirm this tribe’s existence are the monuments and structures that can be found all over Hyrule. There’s even one Zelda theorist we have covered in the past who even…

An antagonist’s redemption usually starts with a change of heart. Maybe an even worse person challenges them, maybe their morals are broken, or maybe they start to see things a different way. When it comes to the main antagonist of the Zelda series Ganon, it’s very rare (and I do mean VERY) for him to show any signs of compassion. Though there was that one time where he did show some form of grace. This is where SwankyBox’s theory begins…

Breath of the Wild has one of the most amazing open worlds in the history of video games. Hyrule is filled with diverse and distinct landscapes, including landmarks like Lake Hylia, the Hebra Mountains, and the Gerudo Desert.  These areas beg to be mapped and charted by the player! That’s why it’s not surprising that some fans have jumped on that idea already! Recently, Making Things With Cameras uploaded an extensive Youtube video on how to make a detailed topographic…

On top of all of the news in regards to the Breath of the Wild sequel and Link’s Awakening Switch remake, The Wind Waker has been popping up a bit more often nowadays. Now while I wish the news about my favorite Zelda game of all-time was about an eventual Switch port, it’s been mostly about things in the speed running community. So take it from me how my curiosity was raised a bit when I saw YouTube’s SwankyBox specifically…

Peering into the depths of the eerie E3 2019 reveal trailer we got for the Breath of the Wild sequel has helped us discover the unfortunate news for our two protagonists. The body of Ganondorf, the being forever tied to Princess Zelda and Link’s fate, appears to be awakening once more. The mysteries surrounding his potential resurrection are still being theorized. One such mystery is: how did Ganondorf die in the first place? Resident Zelda theorist Macintyre takes a deeper…
