The Legend of Zelda games are truly a style all their own and are quickly identifiable, despite the differences in graphics throughout the series. We have seen many recreations of various dungeons or overworld locations in the Unity Engine and Unreal Engine in particular that make a game look more life-like, but YouTube user How I Remember has brought us something a bit different with this re-imagining of Woodfall Temple from Majora’s Mask! This short preview features the Woodfall Temple exterior…

It is no question that the Zelda series is beloved by many, and thus fans aptly celebrate the long-standing series through their own creations. Occasionally fan art or fan fiction will place the given characters of the series, such as Zelda or Link, into a different setting, such as the real world or a world from a different franchise all together, like Star Wars or Harry Potter. Or perhaps the “AU” stays within Hyrule but switches things around, making Zelda…

Breath of the Wild introduced us to an entirely new weapon system that no other Zelda game has ever seen. Though it came as a major disappointment and inconvenience to many, the introduction of different breakable weapons set Breath of the Wild apart from all other Zelda games. With Breath of the Wild 2 on the horizon it makes one wonder if new weapon types and classes will be introduced to the game. I really hope that there are new…

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. The story of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has been… controversial, to put it bluntly. Promising “a new story set 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” this Zelda spinoff generated quite a bit of buzz within the Zelda community, as fans’ imaginations ran wild with speculation about experiencing the tragedy of the Calamity first-hand. Which story elements from Breath of the Wild‘s memories will…

Having previously only been available in Japan, it is exciting to see these Smash-themed greeting cards available on the US version of the My Nintendo rewards site. In exchange for 400 platinum points, which are gathered through various achievements, users can order a set of greeting cards inspired by the popular invite cards seen in playable character reveal trailers for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The set contains three white envelopes, three cards (white, green, and blue), and stickers that resemble…

Every time a new mainline Zelda title appears, we have a certain set of expectations. We will control a character named Link. We will spelunk through numerous dungeons, delve into the wild, find a really cool sword, and save Hyrule from an evil man named Ganondorf. Along with that basic premise, we also have certain expectations of the main character’s backstories, character design, and game mechanics. Because Ganondorf has only ever been a Gerudo, we automatically know certain things about…

|| Previous Chapter || Next Chapter || Chapter Eleven Link’s eyes began to flicker as his senses returned to him. He lay still for a bit, examining his surroundings as best as his field of view would allow. He gathered his strength, pushed himself up, and brought himself to a sitting position. Every muscle in his body was in agony. The trek through the desert had begun to take its toll. He wasn’t immobilized by any means, but there would surely…

It can be quite trying to wait for a game to be released, especially after it has been announced. We can’t wait to experience for ourselves the new interpretations of a franchise, what traditions will be kept and yet what new and exciting things will stir it up into something invigorating. However, it’s good to keep in mind that games that take long periods of development prior to public release do so in order to ensure quality. Nintendo in particular…

As Super Mario Bros.‘ 35th Anniversary year draws to a close, Nintendo is sprinkling in some final commemorative releases. In the latest case: a bright red, Mario-themed set of Switch hardware. We’ve seen a small stream of themed Switches in the last couple of years. Notably the elusive Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the Let’s Go Pokemon editions. Most themed bundles, however, contain just a few exclusively-colored bits while most components in the box remain stock. This Mario Red & Blue…
