In what shouldn’t come as shock to anyone, Breath of the Wild has sold amazingly across the world. After only a little over a month on store shelves, the game managed to surpass the sales of the Nintendo Switch itself. By the end of 2017, it even reached over five million combined units sold worldwide. The game has even more recently become Japan’s most sold Zelda title in 19 years. With that being said, Breath of the Wild has now…

Breath of the Wild‘s soundtrack has some notable tracks that simply stand out from the rest, like “Hyrule Castle” and “The Champion’s Ballad,” and the rest of the soundtrack is largely comprised of atmospheric music that enhances the experience of exploring Hyrule. I enjoy the soundtrack as a whole, especially the town themes. Most of the town themes are nice and relaxing to listen to, and for me, my personal favorite town theme is “Rito Village,” and while both its…

Our best soundtrack tournament continues with two new titles. As A Link Between Worlds and Spirit Tracks duke it out in yesterday’s poll, The Adventure of Link and Oracle of Ages step into the fray. The Adventure of Link Vs. Oracle of Seasons To this day, The Adventure of Link stands as one of the strangest and most divisive Zelda games, bucking many of the trends established by its predecessor. Even the title’s music deviated from the Koji Kondo compositions…

It is undeniable that almost every Legend of Zelda game has a soundtrack packed with bangers. There is much debate between Zelda fans as to which game has the best soundtrack. Our debate in the newest Zelda Challenge episode takes a slight turn though. In this episode, Kevin and I are instead looking at what game uses music the best within the actual game. As opposed to which game has an actual better soundtrack, we are looking at the implementation…

Since 2015, I have covered everything under the sun when it comes to the Zelda community. I remember one of my first big posts was about a woman who took three whole years to make a cosplay of Volvagia from Ocarina of Time that turned out absolutely astounding. From then on, I have experienced the dedication that Zelda fans have toward the series every single day. And one of my favorite kinds of community creations to highlight is musical covers….

There’s no question that the¬†Legend of Zelda¬†series¬†has a variety of fantastic music. From the classic Overworld theme that dates all the way back to the very first game, to the new Hyrule Castle theme from¬†Breath of the Wild.¬†Anyone who has played the series likely has at least one track that specifically stands out to them for one reason or another. Some tracks hold a special place in a player’s heart because of some type of attachment, such as a particular…

Our best soundtrack tournament continues with two new titles. As The Legend of Zelda and Link’s Awakening duke it out in yesterday’s poll, A Link Between Worlds and Spirit Tracks step into the fray. A Link Between Worlds Vs. Spirit Tracks The soundtrack to A Link Between Worlds serves almost as a greatest hits album for Zelda songs.

Koei Tecmo released their second character trailer for the upcoming¬†Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. The trailer features the characters Marin, Sheik, Darunia, Ruto, Fierce Deity/Child Link, Skull Kid, and, of course, Tingle. The graphics on the characters look really crisp and clear, and the trailer does a decent job of letting the viewer see what the characters can do in a fight as a result. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch on March 22nd in Japan,…

The Zelda CD-i games have been marked with infamy since the release of¬†Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon in 1993¬†and the release of¬†Zelda’s Adventure in¬†1994. The cutscenes failed to live up to the graphical quality of the time, the voice acting has been endlessly ridiculed, the controls can be downright frustrating, and the games have been the subject of many YouTube poop compilations. It almost feels as though the games had been set up for…

Hey there guys! We’ve got a mostly Zelda music themed mailbag for Music Week, as we¬†talk about Breath of the Wild’s unique soundtrack again.¬†Outside of music, we do a fairly significant dive into another subject as well, that being the idea of a cycle of reincarnation and just general recurrence in the series!¬† Tell me all of your picks for most of these music questions, and I hope you enjoy the mailbag!
