Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Tag: Twilight

With the release of Twilight Princess HD, many of us will once again embark on a journey into a version of Hyrule that is shrouded in darkness. And what better way to do that than with the help of the Princess of the Twilight Realm; there’s no better guide (and in my opinion, no better companion) in all of the Zelda series. Midna is one of the most inspiring female characters in the lineup. She’s strong in terms of both…

YouTube member and replica maker Scott Fisher recently uploaded a video showing off his electronic replica of Zelda’s bow of light from Twilight Princess and Smash Brothers. The main body of the bow is made from 3D printed plastic painted gold. With a switch on the handle the color of the light can be switched to yellow, red, purple, green, and blue. He then gives us a look at the inside to see the electronics that make it light up….

The Zelda series is loved by many for its adventurousness and compelling storylines. I doubt that anyone would argue with the statement that any one of Link’s numerous journeys can be called a quest. But what few know is that the concept of a quest is so prevalent in stories from all around the world that a set structure has been made which outlines the stages of the quest. The majority of the Zelda games fit perfectly into this pattern,…

In both of my last editorals, I mentioned how one of my favorite things about Zelda was how dramatic it can be when it wants to be. So, I decided to make a top five list of my favorite dramatic moments in Zelda’s history. These moments were chosen by me alone, and are among my favorite moments in Zelda all together. But there are also some major spoilers, so keep that in mind. Hit the jump to see my picks!

Queen Gohma artwork

Queen Gohma is a famous Zelda boss. Her first main appearance in Ocarina of Time led to a similar boss in Twilight Princess called Armoghoma. Even though Queen Gohma is an enemy, that doesn’t stop people from creating fantastic pieces of artwork inspired by her! Jump in to read more!

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on Deviantart artist HyLian-Of-Ooo‘s fanart, “Lost in the Twilight”. In this fanart it shows Link as Wolf Link and Midna as they are traversing through the Twilight that is covering Hyrule. The colors the artist uses in this piece fit the atmosphere that is shown in these areas perfectly. Link and Midna are greatly dwarfed by the trees surrounding them. There is a bright light seen in the distance and they both are looking in…

What is a leitmotif you ask? Excellent question! In simple terms, it’s just a musical theme that is associated with a specific person or idea. Though the idea of leitmotif has been around since the late eighteenth century, the actual term itself was coined by Richard Wagner. Today, most people have no idea who Richard Wagner is, but back in the mid to late nineteenth century, he was pretty hot stuff. Now, what on earth does leitmotif have to do…

Here’s another Zelda Fanart Spotlight and today we are looking at deviantart artist thaliesen and his piece of artwork that features Hyrule Castle from Twilight Princess. The artist used traditional mediums to create this piece of art. This piece perfectly captures the epicness one feels when getting to see Hyrule Castle up close for the first time in the game. It is a beautiful piece of artwork and it’s amazing how to see how he created the light and dark…

…and we’re done for the night, thanks for watching! The end is in sight for Twilight Princess. Tonight I’ll be making my way through the labyrinth that is City in the Sky, tackling the Twilight Palace, and wrapping up tonight with a stab to Ganondorf’s chest. Do join me when the action starts around 8pm ET, over at our Twitch.tv Page! Embedded video below, but if you want to chat, you need to click through to our channel. Be sure…

Ganondorf is the iconic villain of Zelda, the one man we all love to hate. His appearances in three of the most critical titles of Zelda canon – Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess – have cemented his status not only as the most iconic villain, but also as the perennial, most influential one. His influence can be felt essentially everywhere in the Zelda series, from the seemingly unimportant Four Swords Saga to the original NES titles….
