The same way that Majora’s Mask somewhat lived in the shadow of Ocarina of Time, Link’s Awakening had the task of following up A Link to the Past. On top of that, it was the first game in the series to appear on a handheld gaming console. These conditions made Link’s Awakening a game that slipped through the cracks, in my opinion. It’s one of my favorite Zelda games, and usually I don’t love classic Zelda titles so that’s saying…

As many know at this point, Nintendo has seemed to remake quite a few Zelda games for both 3DS and Wii U. With Zelda U and Tri Force Heroes releasing in the future, who’s to say when the next remake will release? And to that, there’s a follow-up question- what will the next remake be? Would it be a remake of an older Zelda title, or a newer one? Is it of high-demand, or do you even care to see…

Items are among the biggest things that makes Zelda what it is. Everyone has a favorite: the hookshot, the bow, the boomerang, there are so many to choose from. However, what about the items that have only appeared once? Items that, for whatever reason, were never put into another Zelda game after their initial appearance. Whether the item wouldn’t fit in a different style of Zelda, or the item wasn’t exactly as useful as it was intended to be, these items only had one chance in the sunlight…

Video game graphics have improved immensely over the years and The Legend of Zelda is a prime example of its growth, beginning with 8-bit sprites and transitioning to fully animated 3D models. And there’s no doubt that 3D animation has come a mighty long way since Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64. Imgur user, game designer, and 3D artist John Guerra was thus inspired to pick-apart the workings of five 3D Princess Zelda models. The jump in resolution from…

Last month, Eiji Aonuma announced a Majora’s Mask-themed Art Academy contest on Miiverse. Now, four weeks later, the talented winners of the contest are being featured on Nintendo Japan’s website.

I’m so glad Nintendo chooses to interact with their fans and give them a chance to be featured on their website…

Give them a look after the jump!

A video comparing the intros of Majora’s Mask on the N64 and Majora’s Mask 3D has been uploaded to Youtube by user Master0fHyrule. The video shows scenes from the title sequences and the games’ introductions– taking us around Clock Town and then into the Forest for that fateful altercation with Skull Kid. The graphics are greatly improved, and few things have been drastically altered. You can judge for yourself whether the 3D intro imparts the same tone as the original.
