In terms of both story and gameplay, the final boss is an adversary that is highly-anticipated. Commonly the main villain, their threat has been seen throughout the course of the game, whether it’s in a constantly-falling moon or the onset of twilight. As a major event that has been built up over a considerable amount of time, the final bosses of Zelda games are not without their challenges. It can be especially frustrating to be so close to finishing a game and not…

Recently, we reported on KamuiCosplay’s DIY tutorial video on how to create your very own Master Sword. While it is a truly amazing feat to be able to create your very own sword, how about we take a look at something a little different? From the maker of the massive fist hammer, we have a special miniaturized version of “the blade of evil’s bane”. Art metal forger Bonn has taken half a pencil and an M4 screw and crafted Link’s…

There are a lot of things to love about the Zelda series. Its sprawling worlds, intuitive gameplay mechanics, legendary stories, and wonderful, charming characters make the series truly special. I started playing the games from a young age, and the series’ deft approach to introducing likable characters has impacted my perception of what it means to have a sympathetic character players can relate to. It’s hard to pick just one, but for me, I think Ravio may be the character…

One of the defining moments from 2019 for Zelda fans was the teaser trailer reveal for Breath of the Wild’s upcoming sequel. Since then, fans all over the world have been theorizing about it, studying the one minute twenty-seven second video, and coming up with some truly extraordinary ideas about the future of the series. I personally have enjoyed many of these lines of thinking, especially when they present a new plot line that could take the story of Zelda…

Ever since Nintendo released Miitomo in 2016, they have been a firm contender in the mobile game market. Now, there’s a bevy of Pokemon games, three different Mario titles, and an original IP–Dragalia Lost. Regardless of how you feel about mobile gaming in general, it appears that Nintendo mobile is here to stay. Talk of Zelda mobile is nothing new. Way back in 2017, Nintendo even announced that a mobile game was in the works. That was the first and…

As they crossed the final peak on the Death Mountain Trail to Goron city, they came to a landing where a statue of the Hero of Time and a tall Goron with a mane like a lion stood. The Hero of Time was posed in his iconic stance, the Master Sword extended out towards the heavens and his shield at his side, always protecting him. The Goron stood right beside the Hero, their backs together, holding a hammer out in…

Have you ever wanted to take on darkness and evil yourself? Is playing through the eyes of Link just not good enough? Well, you’ll be happy to know that cosplay designer and Youtuber KamuiCosplay has created her very own guide to a DIY Master Sword. Using high density foam and a large blueprint, she crafts the sword from scratch, adding stylistic touches such as the weaving around the grip and the Triforce symbol. The project is hefty but is completed…

Well, Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses wasn’t exactly the fighter some of us were expecting, were they? Some fans are still up in arms about Byleth’s inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, however, that wasn’t the only news that dropped during Masahiro Sakurai’s presentation earlier today. Aside from the new fighter and the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 being unveiled, the fifth round of Mii Fighter costumes were shown off as well. The most notable costume out of the bunch…

Every hero’s journey begins with their first wild step into the unknown. This often means leaving behind a quiet life with their families to face life-threatening dangers. Zelda games are no stranger to this trope either. At a crucial moment, Link will always decide to leave his found family—or what few living relatives he has. Speaking of tropes, if you’re related to a main character in the Zelda franchise, things don’t look so good. With the exception of Link’s grandmother in The…
