Weirdness: Two Kids Debate The Legend of Zelda

Two Kids Debate The Legend of Zelda

Still better than half of all Internet arguments

Today the Internet brings to you one of the most heated debates of our age: is The Legend of Zelda one of the best franchises in the world, or what? Representing anti-Zelda is HaleytheHedgehog, cooly wielding her observations like a surgeon’s scalpel. She has played Zelda with her 7-year-old cousin...

This Zelda Art Collection is Gorgeous

And mind-boggling in its range

Of all of Nintendo's franchises, we think a good number will agree that The Legend of Zelda is the series with the most substantial and memorable lore and gaming culture. Mario is a huge seller, while brands such as Metroid have hugely enthusiastic fanbases, but the environments and characters in The Legend of Zelda...

Weirdness: Zelda Answers Rejected on Jeopardy, Hearts are Broken

Zelda Answers Rejected on Jeopardy, Hearts are Broken

What a mean show

Jeopardy! is a popular quiz show in the U.S. Heck, there's even a Jeopardy! game for the Wii U, which is one in the eye for anyone that says there aren't enough games for the system; its iconic jingle and tense battles over thousands of dollars are typical game show fare. Yet Nintendo fans may object to a recent bit of pedantry...

Bling is Redefined by These Zelda Songrings

One ocarina to rule them all

Owning Nintendo-related nick-nacks is, for some, part of the deal as a fan of the company and its games. They can be plushies, cushions, pins, bags and all-manner of things; some of these collectibles are worn, of course, whether they're t-shirts, hats or shoes. But what if you want to bling it up and show your...

Eiji Aonuma - The Wind Waker HD is a "Test Case" for New Zelda Wii U Title

"The gaming community is — I don’t want to sound rude — very fickle"

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is due to arrive in Europe and North America this October, which will certainly be welcome to those that haven't played the GameCube original and also, we suspect, a good number of those that have. It'll be the first full title for the...

Fan Campaign Starts for Princess Zelda to be Given a "Stronger" - Perhaps Playable - Role

We are talking about the ruler of a Kingdom, after all

One of the oddities — depending on your perspective — with The Legend of Zelda as a series is that you don't actually play as the named character. Zelda is an authority figure, a ruler of Kingdoms, yet often needs to be saved or, at the very least, enlists the help of Link to tackle the...

Nintendo Teases Majora's Mask Remake Again, Again

Oh Shigeru Miyamoto, have mercy

So, a 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, it's coming, right? It must be, because if it doesn't a large collective of Nintendo fans will march all the way to Kyoto to protest; well, that seems likely. The classic Nintendo 64 title is beloved by many, and some believe it surpasses The Legend of Zelda:...

First Impressions: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Wind Reawakened

It’s strange to have a first impression on a remake of a game, especially when it’s a game like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The truth is that despite being 10 years old at this point, Wind Waker is still a great looking game that plays well and has held up very well over time. Whether that’s due to the GameCube’s...

Zelda Series Timeline Wasn't Planned From the Beginning

The wails of theorists reverberate around the world

The Zelda timeline is one of the mysteries of gaming — well, it is to enthusiasts that don't simply want to play the games and deal with the cards they're dealt. It's also rather confusing, even though the gorgeous Hyrule Historia includes an "official timeline". Multiple paths and time travel...

Aonuma Explains Why The 3DS Wasn't Used As The Tingle Tuner In Wind Waker HD

All focus was on the social elements of Miiverse

In the original The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker for the GameCube, Link was given a device called the Tingle Tuner, which allowed a player to control Tingle and help with various quests in the game. This was done by linking a Game Boy Advance to the GameCube. Zelda producer, Eiji Aonuma, was asked why...
