Ocarina of Time is one of the most iconic Zelda games, and a huge part of the game’s success is the music. The game is full of catchy tunes that set the tone for the grand adventure that has captivated fans for more than twenty years. Some of the highlights of the soundtrack are the twelve ocarina songs that Link can learn throughout the story. Six of those songs are associated with temples, when these songs are played Link can…

It’s week three of Linktober! All month long, I’ve been combing the Internet, taking in the sights, and bringing you a tasty candy trove of curated art. This week, we’re looking at days 14-20 of the Linktober calendars. Last week, we saw a lot of wonderful traditionally drawn pieces. This week, we have a lot of digitally illustrated works to admire! Before we get started, please remember: All art is good art. Just because you don’t like a particular piece,…

Earlier this month, German musician Jokabi released a new track remixing the iconic “Song of Storms” in his signature, low fidelity style. This teaser track was excellent and served as the perfect appetizer to a new, full-length collection of lofi Nintendo remixes. The wait is finally over, as Chilltendo II has been released today through video game record label GameChops. Chilltendo II is Jokabi’s follow-up to his previous album Chilltendo. Similarly to its predecessor, Chilltendo contains numerous iconic Zelda tunes along with a few hidden gems. Most Zelda fans are…

Hyrule Castle is one of my favorite locations in The Wind Waker, not only because it becomes a playground when pulling the Master Sword for the first time, but also because of the emotional weight of the location. You can feel the rich history in the tragic atmosphere, and thus you can feel that something monumental has been forgotten to the society above the seas. And when you go down the steps below the statue, you meet the faces of…

It’s one of the most iconic songs from the early years of The Legend of Zelda franchise. Players gather the three pendants, draw the Master Sword, and face down Agahnim only to find that the adventure is just getting started. Link finds himself atop the golden Pyramid of Power, and that’s when the player hears it–the iconic song “Dark World Theme”. The feeling of seeing the overworld transform is matched by the legendary theme music of the corrupted landscape; it’s a…

Warning: This video contains spoilers for Skyward Sword HD. In August, we covered the start of a video analysis series on Skyward Sword HD’s dungeons. The creator of those episodes, CaptBurgerson, has returned with a new series called Zelda Character Study, and his debut episode features an analysis video that studies the character of Ghirahim, the game’s primary antagonist. Ghirahim has proven to be a popular character in the Zelda fanbase. The sly and posturing demon even managed to take…

Last December, we put out a post encouraging our readers to vote on a meticulously detailed Hyrule Castle LEGO set that had been submitted to the LEGO Ideas program. Taking its inspiration from Ocarina of Time, the design was beautifully done and was ultimately able to accrue enough votes to be considered in this year’s official review. However, after many months, LEGO has officially rejected the Legend of Zelda design among various other submissions. Out of 57 finalists, eight fan…

Welcome back, one and all to the best part of the year—Linktober! All month long, I’ll be combing the Internet, taking in the sights, and bringing you a tasty charcuterie board of curated art. This week, we’re looking at days 7-13 of the Linktober calendars. While last week, we saw quite a few three-dimensional pieces, this week we’re focusing on illustrations drawn with traditional media. That means, gauche, ink, markers, pastels, watercolors, and so much more! Before we get started,…

Skyward Sword has one of the most underrated soundtracks in the Zelda series. The Wii title was the first Zelda game to have fully orchestrated music, and that music has a majestic quality because of the orchestration. The score is littered with wonderful tunes that set the tone for a grand and exceptional adventure. Overall, the recent release of Skyward Sword HD has given many artists and musicians an opportunity to revisit the game and its wonderful music. It is…

The Legend of Zelda is well known for its iconic music. Not only does it compliment the gameplay experience, but series soundtracks are often great for independent listening. The franchise’s plethora of instantly recognizable, catchy tunes are perfectly suited to serve as the backing tracks to studying, working, or simply relaxing. Many artists have used these memorable pieces as the inspiration for lofi remixes to fulfill this very role. Another new collection of lofi Nintendo music is on the horizon, with…
