Despite their many differences, Zelda and Mario are probably Nintendo’s most well-known franchises. Given that one features a sword-wielding hero defending a fantasy world from the forces of evil, and the other a plumber jumping on cartoonish creatures and giant mushrooms, a serious crossover between the two isn’t likely. However, both have given one and other the occasional in-game wink or nod. In a recent video, Alex of Nintendo Life discusses some of the lesser known homages these series have paid one and other… 

Nintendo fans may as well call this the Year of the Squid because its most anticipated game happens to be the third-person ink shooting break-out hit Splatoon.

Recently, I’ve been hearing rumblings in the Zelda community. The fans, the staff, and anyone who is fond of the Zelda series are starting to mount an uprising; a rebellion.

Okay, maybe it’s not as bad as that, but hear me out. I would like to address, explain, and remedy a concern that I have been hearing amongst certain members of the Zelda community…

Hello! I am Darrin W. Harr II. In this editorial I hope to convey how I got into the Legend of Zelda series, and why I write for Zelda Informer. The first video game I ever played was the classic NES title Super Mario Bros. My grandparents were the ones that had the NES at their house, and this is where my love for video games was born. My grandparents basically handed me a controller, showed me what was jump, move, and run, and let me on my own. Pretty soon I was racing through levels like no tomorrow, stomping on goombas left and right. I then started playing games such as…

One of the things I would like to see in future Zelda games is for characters to have voices rather than have the speech bubbles appear. Giving actual voices to the characters makes the gameplay more immersive. One of the big questions that would arise is who would voice Link.
