It’s been awhile since we concluded the week-long stream of this year’s Zelda Dungeon Informer Marathon, and we realize that during the livestream, many people may not have been able to stick around for the whole thing, or even for a whole run. Seven hours of Link’s Awakening is tough for those that have silly things to do like – I don’t know – JOBS, I guess. Luckily, there is YouTube. Recording is a great thing, and the Zelda Dungeon…

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has been released for over a week or so, and already it’s proving to be one of the best Wii U titles. The all-out free-for-all has made it big, on both Wii U and 3DS. However, some were able to get their hands on a copy of the game early (before release) for review. Zelda Informer, specifically, made a playlist of videos about the event matches in the title; basing it off of all…

We’ve been playing around with this for awhile on social media and now it’s time to finally make this official: we’re going to be hosting a handful of select Mario Kart 8 Tournaments every single week for the foreseeable future. The tournaments will all vary in style and type. We also have a general “Zelda Informer Club”, which is a daily “tournament” that runs all day long with 32 races. However, this is less of a tournament where we track results and more of a general gathering for our entire ZI fanbase, along with a way to practice and hone yourself for the tournaments we’ll actually be posting about…

Do you like The Legend of Zelda? Do you like Zelda Informer? Of course you do!

(How cheeky and enjoyable of him to say that; I should keep reading!)

As you probably guessed from the title, it’s that time of year again! We at Zelda Informer are always trying to improve both the breadth and the quality of content we provide, and as such, we’re always looking for new faces to join the ZI team. If you love writing about

The Legend of Zelda, you should consider giving ZI a try. We provide opportunities for writers of many creeds to lend a hand, whether you prefer writing news stories, providing deep analyses of games, or even if you’re a huge walkthrough fanatic! We’re currently hiring for the following positions:

News Editors will be tasked with finding and writing news stories, be they comments from Aonuma, news about upcoming Zelda games, or even goings-on in the fan world! If someone’s done something involving Zelda, we want to spread the word.

Columnists will write weekly articles exploring many aspects of The Legend of Zelda. Zelda Informer is home to brilliant work such as “Destined to Fade” and “It’s Your Legend,” but we’ve also had several fun articles over the years, including speculation pieces, analyses, theories, and more. If you’re interested in thinking about any corners of the Zelda world, this is the position for you.

Walkthrough Editors will write… well… walkthroughs! If you’ve got experience with Zelda and want to help guide others through the Water Temple, we’d love to have you lend a hand.

And the best part? There’s no experience required! Only a skill for writing and a passion for Zelda.

we expect applicants to be dedicated to helping the site and its future.**

Development times for high profile video games –particularly Zelda games- are typically measured in years, but remakes, like the recently-released The Wind Waker HD, tend to be an exception. Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed in a recent interview that up-scaling  Link’s nautical adventure to HD took only six months.

A few days ago, Zelda Informer released an exclusive video of the new Fi and Ghirahim models that will be in Hyrule: Total War. The two characters will come to life on the battlefield and engage in epic fights against hordes of various different enemy types from the Zelda franchise. Hyrule: Total War is a mod of Medieval 2: Total War and aims to replace in-game models with characters from Zelda games across many platforms. The project has been in…

Alex Plant from Zelda Informer was at E3 2011 last week and he got a chance to play through the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Last week he wrote up a lengthy article of his Impressions of Skyward Sword and today Alex has agreed to take part in a question and answer segment in regards to his experience. Questions were collected from fans at our Forums and our Facebook Page. We talk about a wide variety of topics, including the…

Over at Zelda Informer, the staff are having a series of speculative articles pertaining to Skyward Sword. While this article isn’t speculative, it’s more of a reverse wish list, it’s still quite interesting and makes a few guesses about the game. The article touches on a lot of topics including the field hub system, the difficulty level, and the presence of a consistent villain throughout the game. The topic that I most agree with though is avoiding too many gimmicky…

Zelda Informer has posted another great article for your reading pleasure. Not As Long As Me Right Now is a look at the claim that Zelda games have been continually decreasing in length and play time. The claim that is disputed, though the author does empathize, is that older games such as Ocarina of Time offer 100+ hours of gameplay, while newer games like Twilight Princess only last a measly 40 hours. The author agrees that yes, a first play…
