In a recent video by Zeltic, he pointed out five things that he believed Zelda U could learn from The Adventure of Link on the NES. It stated that the game should not have experience like in The Adventure of Link, as it would detract from its non linear gameplay. Other points were bringing back the raft and adding Dark Link. The remaining points were bringing back the jump and varied spells.   Check out the video after the jump!

Tuesday is here again and that means it’s time for another Cosplay of the Week! This week we are going to the dark side of Hyrule and featuring Dark Link cosplayed by InkyLink. The color scheme of the Hylian shield and Master Sword for this cosplay was designed and made by InkyLink with the help of Aaron Granofsky of Fiberglass Blades, who crafted the props…

Yep, I’m running the Fan Art Showdown for yet another week. Anyone want to take it over for me? Anyone? No..? Okay…

No matter how far away a new Zelda game is, or how little we know about the next entry in the series, thoughts and theories are always swirling in our minds. What will the next game be like? Will it be top-down or 3D? Will it be set in Hyrule or somewhere else? How in the world can we possibly know what will come next in the series? 

Welcome to a new set of articles designed to do just that: extrapolate on past Zelda games to inform us about potential future entries. To do this, I’m taking a close look at the Zelda timeline; in particular, each of the three eras: the Era of Decline, the Child Era, and the Adult Era. Why only look at those eras, and not the Unified Timeline from Skyward Sword to Ocarina of Time? I think it’s time to move the timeline forward and explore the future of the three different eras brought about by the events of Ocarina of Time. Let’s start this off with a look at the Era of Decline.

No, it’s not April Fool’s Day. I really am analyzing the Water Temple from Ocarina of Time and telling all of you why it’s a fantastic example of great level design. Don’t believe me? Well, assuming you didn’t skip right to the comments, read on, and maybe I’ll convince you.

Also, we’re doing something a little interesting this time around (and something I wished I’d thought of when I covered Ocarina of Time’s Forest Temple), and that is including notes on the Master Quest version of this dungeon and how it differs from the original. Also on that note, I got so absorbed into my Water Temple playthrough during my regular run that my only screenshots here (posted to Miiverse) are from the Master Quest version.

Yeah, I got absorbed into the Water Temple. I can’t help it, this dungeon has grown on me every time I’ve played it since it first released. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Welcome to the third installment of Piece of Heart, where we look at The Legend of Zelda series through the eyes of a literary professor and examine how its literary elements enhance the gaming experience. This weeks lesson is titled “Nice to Eat You: Acts of Vampires”, and believe it or not many of the enemies in Zelda are actually life-sucking creatures of the night. Though they may not show up in mirrors, literary vampires are very easy monsters to…

For many years people have been modding games to make them look a little different to how they should, it seems no game is too difficult to mod. YouTube channel PC Best Mods has recently shown a mod for Ultra Street Fighter IV, which has made a match look like a brutal fight between Link and his doppelganger Dark Link. See the video after the jump!

American fans received Super Smash Bros. for Wii U last Friday, while European fans will have to wait until next friday to pick up the game alongside any of the awesome amiibo they’re interested in! As the game did already release stateside, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that certain artistic and creative fans have already been tempering with the beloved figures. 

DeviantArt frequenter ChibiSilverWings is one…

Etsy and Imgur user Chibisilverwings has taken advantage of the recent release of the Amiibo Link figure, by customising two of them and making them look even cooler! Make the jump to check out two customized Link figures: a Dark Link and an Ocarina of Time blue tunic inspired Link.
