The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Master Quest World Tour Gets Extended

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. As such, it's no surprise that Symphony of the Goddesses - a concert series that aims to bring exactly that music to life - would still be touring years after its initial conception, with no signs of slowing...

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. Their section of Hyrule isn't on the lavish maps produced in honour of their hero Link, but is off the edge and out of view. Not even smashing pots is much fun in their...

Returning after seven long years

Zelda (and manga) fans have much to rejoice over as after a seven year hiatus, the female partnership of Akira Himekawa - the pen name for two manga artists working together since 1991 - will return to publish another series of manga based on Nintendo's legendary franchise. No news as of yet as to when we can expect...

Nintendo Has No Plans For amiibo Support In The Legend Of Zelda: Triforce Heroes

"This game isn't a natural fit for it"

While Nintendo’s amiibo line has resulted in a mixture of happiness and frustration for fans, it’s clearly a goldmine for Kyoto-based company right now. For these reasons it comes as somewhat surprising news the upcoming 3DS title, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, will not include amiibo support. In...

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Director Defends Absence of Female Playable Characters

"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. That's fair enough, in this writer's view - when avatars and customisation are part of a title, it's a valid topic. Of...

This Legend of Zelda Quest Items Infographic Sure is Pretty

The Oracle games didn't mess around

We often get sent infographics here at Nintendo Life, and will no doubt get bombarded with more as a consequence of sharing this particular example. Some are downright silly, such as placing values on Princess Peach's dress collection*, and as a result get ignored. Sometimes a genuinely nice example comes...

Super Mario Maker Producer Tells Fans Not To Expect Zelda Maker Any Time Soon

"I think that might be a difficult task"

Super Mario Maker might not have been a brand-new title at this year's E3, but it certainly turned a lot of heads with its inventive mechanics and use of iconic Mario imagery. It also had many people wondering if Nintendo could perform the same trick with any of its other classic IPs - Legend of Zelda...

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Promises a Lot of Content and Playtime

"If you’re a completionist, you’re gonna be playing for a long time"

Fans Are Creating A Brand-New Quest For The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time

It's called Third Quest

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a game that speaks, well, volumes.

Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda Wii U Wasn't At E3 2015

"Our mentality is more near-term when we think about E3"

Nintendo didn't show the Wii U version of Zelda at this year's E3. That caused quite a bit of concern, with some fans even going as far as to speculate that it's going to be an NX title, given that Nintendo is going to be talking about the new system a whole lot more next year - when Zelda is...

Wisdom, Power, Cosplay

While saving Hyrule has traditionally been a one hero job, multiplayer adventures have become a fan-favourite subset of the Legend of Zelda series since Four Swords made its début in 2002, and we were ecstatic to see The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes - an all-new co-op title for three players - revealed in Nintendo's...

Don't Worry, The Legend of Zelda is Still Coming to Wii U

Be happy

Ever since The Legend of Zelda on Wii U was delayed into 2016 there's been concern that it would fall far enough down Nintendo's schedule to become a title on the company's next 'NX' hardware. This hasn't always seemed to be an overly accurate assumption, as the NX won't even be revealed until 2016, with no release window clear as yet...
