Some of you may remember Jaron Davis, who performed an acapella collaboration with Triforcefilms to produce a cover of the Hyrule Field theme from Ocarina of Time. One of his latest musical creations is another acapella cover coming from a game that is not talked about much in the Zelda franchise, Link’s Awakening. Davis says recreating this song brought back memories from when he first played the game on his Game Boy…

A new World Record has been set for a 100% completion run of Link’s Awakening DX. Keep in mind that a 100% run does allow for glitches, so long as the game is 100% completed. We understand some prefer for pure glitchsless runs. In an effort to be more fair to the speed running community and our fans, we’re going to be reporting on all speed run records that get set for all of the given categories. That includes…

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is a series staple in my house, and it saddens me that it is often forgotten about when people start talking about the best Zelda title. While the dungeons may not be the most complicated, it still offers a fun set of puzzles and quirky Nintendo references strewn about. Luckily, it still stands as a diamond in the rough for some fans, including one imgur user who has dropped a few tips for the game, complete with images. If you have played the game before, go back and try these useful tidbits out for yourself. If you haven’t, you can now be ready…

Welcome to our second installment of Tadtone Tuesday! This week we will be lending our ears to the ever-so nostalgic “Ballad of the Wind Fish” from Link’s Awakening. For anyone who missed out on last week’s introduction to the series, we will continue to analyze, feature, and openly discuss our weekly Tadtone. Today, the spotlight goes to the one and only Wind Fish! Take the jump for more on this week’s Tadtone!

The Legend of Zelda has a long and storied past with mobile systems; indeed, the marriage of the two dates as far back as the series’ fourth game, Link’s Awakening.  In this article, I take a look at the design of portable Zelda games by comparing Link’s Awakening, the oldest, and A Link Between Worlds, the youngest, side by side.

Link’s Awakening ranks up there as the most beloved handheld game to come from the Zelda series, and artist iwilding has created a wonderful homage to Link’s Awakening with a limited edition print. The first time I saw the picture I actally missed the “hidden” image, but once I spotted it I immediately wanted to get my hands on it. Hit the jump to take a look at the piece and find out how to get your own.

Welcome to the sixth 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 week’s lesson is titled “Hanseldee and Greteldum” so we’ll scour the Zelda series in search of parallels to fairy tales (oddly enough I found none alluding to Hansel and Gretel, nor Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, so I changed the title rather than be…

I remember playing Wario Ware on the Wii and loving the Animal Crossing fishing challenge because it required minimal strategy, was quick, and my catch offered instant gratification when displayed. Contrary to this fast paced mini-game, fishing in The Legend of Zelda actually requires some skill and a level of patience, so it isn’t a surprise that I never really took to fishing in Zelda. Fishing appears in five Zelda titles now with its implementation in Majora’s Mask 3D, which…

Stories of valiant knights, princes and other heroes who fight for their beloved ladies are some of the oldest and most beloved stories in human history. Perhaps even THE oldest, depending on your interpretation of the Epic of Gilgamesh. So it was to be expected that a concept as basic as fighting for those you care about eventually ended up in The Legend of Zelda, or at least have fans ascribe it to individual games. But is there any truth…
