It comes as no surprise that characters from The Legend of Zelda often make appearances in more than just one title, since most of Link’s adventures follow the same ancient prophecy. But aside from the core characters that are expected to return, many less important characters tend to pop up in multiple titles in one way or another as well. While they may be entertaining references for those players who recognize them, is the recycling of characters getting old?

I’ve always loved seeing memorable side characters return in new Zelda games. The series is known for its recurring characters, with iconic ones like Link, Ganon, and Zelda herself, but many of its recurring characters aren’t at all important to the overall storyline, nor are they iconic (with the possible exception of Tingle, especially now that he has his own games). These recurring side characters are virtually a staple of the series now. It really started back with Ocarina of…

Terry’s Shop?

December 26 2012 by ralphpotato

Wait, I thought it was Beedle who owned a sailing shop in Phantom Hourglass. And in the UK and North American versions of the Zelda games that feature this young merchant, his name is Beedle. However in the releases in the other parts of Europe and Japan, his name is actually Terry! Of course, at some point this rift in names had to cause a problem. And in Phantom Hourglass just the mistake occurred! Many gamers probably wouldn’t find where this mistake…

So many rich characters exist in the Zelda universe who can star in their own adventures whether they be silly or serious. Nintendo hasn’t explored spin-offs in Zelda nearly as it has in Mario, and by no means do I want Zelda to be over-saturated with silly spin-off games. In no way should Nintendo actually make spin-offs based off all of these characters, but if they could, these would be the select few who would have their time in the…

Hey guys! Got your new mailbag here. Got a pretty wide variety of questions here, including two follow-ups to questions from last week, and an opinion question about what minigame is the most frustrating. Actually, we have a bunch of future-of-the-series questions at the end, too. 11 questions in all. Enjoy! You can watch it here or view the video embed after the jump. Questions and timestamps: (00:09) – What about having voice-acting but also a fictional language? (01:15) –…

Youtube member WiiFolderJosh of BitBlock has recently posted a few videos showing off a little more of the gameplay of Skyward Sword. The first video shows us more of Beedle’s shop and what might be sold there. Later we also see a warning to what happens when a thrifty adventurer decides not make a purchase and leaves. The second video gives us a closer look into infusing potions to create a better one. Both are fairly short but give a…

Four Ways to Make Shops Important in Zelda Again Hello everyone, this is ChargewithSword here, bringing in his first article about the shops of Zelda games. Lately as of most recent Zelda titles, the shops have become useless. This isn’t something that I’d call a big problem, but I find it to be a little annoying when you consider how you have thousands of rupees in your bags but nothing to spend them on. It sometimes makes you wonder why…
