The journey continues with more dates

Without a doubt, The Legend of Zelda series has some of the most iconic music in video gaming history.

A Tale of Adventure and Totemic Chaos in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Three brave heroes seek triumph

This is the tale of identical triplets living in a quiet, uninteresting corner of Hyrule, each with an earnest desire to escape and see the world.

"Link isn't the most masculine of guys"

In these times of greater equality, social media and ongoing debate around gender, even a cute and lighthearted game such as The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes isn't exempt from scrutiny.
