Award Winning Short Film Shows the Power of Zelda and Escapism

Sad but brilliant

If there's one thing that video games very rarely do, if ever, it's to remind us of our everyday lives.

This Custom Zelda Shield Is Possibly The Best Use of Lego Yet

Block buster

When we were kids, we tried to create all manner of things out of Lego, most of which turned out to be disappointingly dissimilar from the intended design. That's clearly not something that Reddit user remig ever has to worry about - as this amazing Hylian Shield attests. Constructed from Lego parts costing around $1500, this amazing...

Now that's epic

Last week we were rather delighted to share the news that The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia is on the way to the West, with all 272 pages of its Zelda goodness making its way out of Japan early next year. We know enthusiasts will be interested in this, but the question is whether there'll be enough demand to make it worth the...

The Wild West Meets Zelda In A Fist Full of Rupees

Amazing Hyrule and Spaghetti Western Mash-Up Hits YouTube

There was a time when YouTube was the sole preserve of low-grade amateur videos and footage of amusing pets performing inane stunts, but with millions of dollars being pumped into original programming on the service, we're starting to see the kind of content which rivals what we're viewing on...

Another Look at the News - 3rd August

We're on our soapbox

It's been a relatively busy week of Nintendo news, culminating in the EA Summer Showcase that was more of a polite presentation, in terms of Wii U at least. Once again we take a look at some of the news of the past week and give a personal spin, ranging from optimism to shouting from on top of our soapbox, depending on the...

The Games feature a game

The Legend of Zelda franchise may not have the same raw selling power reserved almost exclusively for Mario, but it still has a significant and passionate worldwide fanbase.

Live Action Zelda Video Has Poe Trouble

A moody adventure

After showing you a rather quirky take on finding a real life Master Sword yesterday, today brings another live action Zelda production onto our radar. In terms of approach, it's a very different proposition, with a very literal and moody representation of Link, Epona and accompanying fairy — Navi, it seems. This one is from...

This Zelda Nursery Sets the Scene for a Life of Adventure

Highly decorated

So many Legend of Zelda games open with Link waking up in bed that a Zelda-decorated nursery makes perfect sense.
