With the release of a demo on the Japanese eShop for Hyrule Warriors Legends recently we have see some information come across about how the game runs on a regular 3DS, but how does it fair on a New 3DS? since the launch of the upgraded machine there have been several new release games that have been clearly impacted in terms of their ability to run on the regular 3DS, and this just might be another one. Yesterday, we shared…

What if instead of a fairy, Link had a Pip-Boy? Or if, rather than hearing Koji Kondo’s arrangements, players were treated to Three Dogs’ Galaxy News Radio? The comedic minds over at Dorkly asked themselves the same questions and have turned their answers into a hilarious fifty second parody of A Link to the Past intertwined with Fallout tropes. With a little bit of lock-picking, targeted combat, and a classic Fallout drink, life in Hyrule sure has changed for Link….

The game that started it all, the reason why we all had the opportunity to become Zelda fanatics, The Legend of Zelda was a deliberately crafted masterpiece from the beginning of its production. The game was meant to counterbalance Mario’s gameplay style by being open-ended, story-focused, and require players to think critically. It was the first home console game to save players’ progress, it took inspiration from Miyamoto’s childhood as well as high fantasy novels, and it contained only six…

To top off his 2015 year of covers, Youtube’s Banjo Guy Ollie produced a cover of Mabe Village from Link’s Awakening on– you guessed it– a banjo. He also employed a host of other instruments including a U-Bass, Bouzouki/Mandola, and Mandolin. The cover really does this great tune justice, and the banjo gives it a unique and rather cozy tone that fits the song’s role in the game perfectly. Banjo Guy Ollie’s version of Mabe Village is not to be…

This time he tackles the Great Bay area, alongside the much-maligned Great Bay Temple. Watch the video after the jump!

During the half hour Hyrule Warriors Legends livestream that Koei Tecmo held today, the team showed off the game’s snazzy character-filled 3DS theme. The theme is basically just a background image on the home screen that slides along with the 3DS when swiped to reveal more of the picture before looping back around. As mentioned, the image is chock full of characters from the game; all of the playable characters reside on the top screen, and the bottom screen is…

Since 2012, Lorerunner — formerly Archengeia — has been my favorite YouTube personality. With his minimalist approach to production, he excels through pure commentary. The guy’s insightful interpretations, coupled with his infectious enthusiasm, often have me revisiting particular games with a fresh perspective. Throughout the past several months, he has been exploring the underlying themes of each individual Zelda title. This past week in particular has seen the release of ruminations on both Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. Each…

It’s no surprise that our influential video game series has garnered some imitators over the years, but you may be surprised just how many games are Zeldas in disguise. What if I told you the Binding of Isaac was a Zelda clone? How about Star Fox Adventures? Darksiders? Okami? That’s exactly what WatchMojo is going to tell you in its Top 10 Zelda Clones video. Some of the games you’ve no doubt heard of, others maybe not. But in any…

Austin “PeanutButterGamer” Hargrave’s fifth annual Zelda Month continues with not only the first countdown of the lot, but also a deeper look at an infamous cult gem. The former, specifically, is a collaborative video in which he and Game Theory’s Matthew Patrick run down their least favorite pieces of equipment from throughout the series. From downright useless items such as the Deku Nuts to those with particularly frustrating properties — I’m looking at you, Giant’s Knife — it’s a solid…
