With the sunny season just around the corner, the folks over at Games Done Quick have just recently released the schedule of games (Zelda included) to be featured in this year’s Summer Games Done Quick. For those who don’t know, GDQ is made up of two dedicated and varied groups of speed runners who twice a year run a week-long exhibition charity stream. The Summer edition of the charity drive helps raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders)….

Warning: This post contains some spoilers for The Champions’ Ballad. You’ve finished your final Divine Beast, and you’re preparing to start The Champions’ Ballad DLC, because you’re not quite ready to go take on Calamity Ganon. You take Link back to the Shrine of Resurrection, where he is greeted by a brand new, omniscient voice, naming itself Maz Koshia. The voice proceeds to guide him through a new set of trials, challenging him ultimately to face the fears hidden away in his mind…

Since the initial announcement for Breath of the Wild , a single question has left Zelda fans pondering; Where does the latest Zelda entry belong in the timeline? Speculations have arisen evaluating the connection of Breath of the Wild to games in different timelines. The Hyrule Historia included a chronological timeline for the Zelda series, with the timeline splitting into three different possibilities from Ocarina of Time: the Adult Era, the Child Era and the Era where The Hero is Defeated; but certain…

Breath of the Wild has been out for over a year now, yet players are still finding secrets, references, and continuity nods to other parts of the storied Zelda franchise. One such nod is in the Trials of the Sword DLC. Redditor kamuilyn found this great shoutout to Ocarina of Time, as the monks within the final room are resting in the iconic poses of the Seven Sages from the climactic final battle of Ocarina of Time. Fans may well remember…

The Sheikah: so few in number now, and so steeped in the stories that shaped Hyrule.  A tribe of warriors that hail from the shadows, they are sworn to protect the crown and the descendants of Hylia at all costs.  Without them, Hyrule never would have seen such technological wonders as the Divine Beasts, the Guardians, and the Sheikah Slate itself.  Without their blades and silent skills, the Royal Family may very well have faced its demise during the Hylian…

The Zelda series has some incredibly talented and creative fans, so it’s always lovely when they take the time to lay out their processes for other fans to emulate. Simon, from ClayClaim, was inspired to make a tutorial on how to sculpt Breath of the Wild Link out of polymer clay after playing the game for just two weeks. The step-by-step makes this creation look accessible to the average crafter, so take a look and maybe give it a try!…

After a tough workout or a busy day, there’s nothing better than recharging with a smoothie or fizzy drink. YouTube chef Pwnapplez (Peter) knows this well, and has found the perfect way to put a Zelda spin on this method of rejuvenation. He’s crafted real-life recipes for Breath of the Wild’s Energizing Elixir (using actual crickets) and Fairy Tonic (which can be made with or without alcohol). All proceeds from Peter’s videos go to charity, so give it a watch!…

Ever since its release last March, Breath of the Wild has received critical acclaim from many sources. But that isn’t to say that the game is not without its faults. The folks at Commonwealth Realm recently looked at some of these faults in the debut video of their Deadly Sins series. Commonwealth Realm analyzes Breath of the Wild through a sins system, in which each flaw is is given a weighted sin score depending on its severity. In addition to smaller, more forgivable flaws,…

Link is a truly extraordinary man. Despite often looking like a stringbean, he’s proven time and time again that he has the strength and endurance of a well-trained athlete. BuzzFeedBlue’s Kelsey Darragh and Ned Fulmer took it upon themselves to find out just what it takes to develop Link’s adventuring skills. Donning their best Link hoodies, the pair tackles horseback riding, hang gliding, and rock climbing. This humorous video is peppered with Zelda references, so check it out! Seeing Darragh…

One can’t think of The Legend of Zelda without hearing the ghost of it’s iconic music flitting through their mind.

And so, starting February 19th and continuing on through the 25th, we will be bringing you all things musical when it comes to our Zelda coverage, with Music Week. You can look forward to many…
