Link’s Awakening is currently the recipient of a surge of attention since its announcement for Nintendo Switch. Hundreds of reflection, interpretation, and speculation articles have appeared across a variety of gaming sites. The game has also seen an uptick in the number of musical covers in a variety of genres. This Lofi/Chill cover of “Sword Search” by Qumu is an intriguing musical cover. This version captures the spirit of the original song, while also enriching it with new and distinct…

When originally playing through Link’s Awakening, I wonder how many people reacted the way I did when I found out what exactly the Wind Fish was. I don’t think I ever would have guessed it was going to be a huge egg-based whale deity that comes with a really good score. “The Ballad of the Wind Fish” is easily one of the best scores that Link’s Awakening has to offer, and just hearing it done in a more orchestral style…

Youtuber Zeltik recently published a theory about Link’s most powerful armor in the Legend of Zelda series.  Zeltik begins his theory with a discussion based on the Hero of Winds and the Magic Armor that he can gain through the completion of a side quest in The Wind Waker. The theorist compares the Magic Armor as seen in The Wind Waker to similar armors and spells from other games such as Twilight Princess and Ocarina of Time.  He delves in…

The Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game of all-time. This is something I have said on a very consistent basis when it comes to talking about this game. So far be it from me that something as simple as a what-if concept video gets me excited for a game I already love. The folks over at Nintendo Wire have come out with yet another “De-Make” of a classic Zelda game. They have done consistently amazing work that makes you wish…

“The Song of Healing” is one of The Legend of Zelda‘s most popular songs. In our own Musical March Madness bracket, the song was one of eight finalists for “Greatest Zelda Song Ever”. In Majora’s Mask, Link learns the song from the Happy Mask Salesman early in the adventure. The Happy Mask Salesman asserts that the song can “heals evil magic and troubled spirits”. Depending on the interpretations and instrumentation used in the song, the song can take on different…

Everybody started somewhere their first journey in the Zelda series. For some, they were told by an old man in a cave that it would be dangerous to go alone without a sword. For others, they ventured inside a dying massive tree who wanted to test them to see if they were ready to save Hyrule. The Great Deku Tree’s massive innards are where we start in Ocarina of Time, and as this piano cover demonstrates, it is an eerie start indeed….

The Fairy Fountain theme is one of the most common tracks found in the Zelda series, appearing in most titles’ file select screens, and of course within Fairy Fountains themselves. First appearing in A Link to the Past (well, there were technically Fairy Fountains in The Legend of Zelda, but they weren’t officially named), the sound quality has progressed considerably throughout the years, but some miss the nostalgic tone found in the SNES game. That’s where music technician GLASYS comes in. With brand new…

The Zelda fandom all over the world dreams of different ways, even different places that they can pit our hero Link. Maybe a military shooter where Link wields an assault rifle? Or perhaps even a science fiction game where all of Hyrule is at war in the year 2209? Whatever the case, there are always different kinds of genres we want to be added to the series. Take the artists we’re looking at today, for example, who decided to flip…

It’s hard to argue with anybody in discussing where The Adventure of Link places on everyone’s all-time best Zelda list. It’s most likely on the bottom of some, but one universally praised aspect of the game is its music. One of the most well-known songs (thanks in part to Super Smash Bros. Melee) from this title is, of course, the Palace Theme. The cover artist we’re looking at today agrees and has greatly increased the rock levels of this beloved…

Ocarina of Time is heralded as one of the greatest Zelda games by many fans, which is why we continue to see amazing fan projects inspired by the game to this day. For example, a recent animation video by MajorLink calls back to fan-favorite characters Link and Saria, exploring their relationship and adding emotional depth to the events of Ocarina of Time. In this video, titled “Always With Me”, we see an adult Link enter the Sacred Forest Meadow expecting…
