This Piano Medley of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Pokémon and Mario Soothes the Soul

Because game music and pianos are cool

The idea of someone filming themselves playing video game music on an old — and rather out-of-tune — piano may not be overly-exciting on paper, but it's oddly wonderful. We post various videos of game music, animation and live-action fan creations, and the latest to catch our attention has a rather...

Prima Games Releasing Collector's Edition Guide For The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

'Hoy collectors!

Last month Prima Games announced it would be releasing The Legend of Zelda Box Set in November, which contains official guides for several titles in the popular series.

Rejected CGI Zelda Film Discovered Online

It wasn't to be

Plenty of video game projects come and go while fans are none the wiser, including some for spin-offs and movies that don't make the cut. One such example has been discovered in the form of a rejected pitch for a Zelda CGI movie. Residing within a Vimeo portfolio of animations — and since posted around the web — the footage...

How long before Nintendo puts it to the sword?

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.

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...
