The real hero
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker started out life as an off-shoot of Super Mario 3D World on the Wii U. As you might recall, though, the conceptualisation of the title was well before then. During a recent
"We're reaching our limits as to how we can make it look cool."
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is arguably the most innovative entry in the series thus far, positively shattering longstanding traditions by introducing a plethora of new ideas. One of the more minor, yet still notable, changes this time around was that Link's characteristic...
Lifting our spirits
Good Smile Company is a producer of some of the cutest and / or most handsome Nintendo-themed figures around, depending on the game and range it's shooting for. The latest offering it's putting up for pre-order is a Link based on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The figure's face is based more on the title's promotional /...
As we all know, The Legend of Zelda series is set in a fantasy universe which sticks to some pretty basic rules - magic and swords are the weapons of choice. However, with titles like Spirit Tracks (trains) and Skyward Sword (AI-like constructs like Fi) Nintendo has tentatively pushed the franchise into new realms, and perhaps one day...
To mark Twilight Princess HD release, we're assuming
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is out this week, and it would appear that someone at Google is a bit of a fan, as hero Link is making a guest appearance in Google Maps. Open up Google Maps in your browser and hover your mouse pointer over the little "Street View" character in the...
Get ready to throw money at your screen
Dat plastic - we simply cannot resist it. Good Smile has just revealed the latest entry to its Figma range, and it's likely to be of great interest to Nintendo fans. Link from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the character in question, and he's been shown off in a wide range of suitably heroic...
Better figure out your savings!
Joining in on the hype of the upcoming Star Fox Zero and Legend of Zelda games, GameStop has opened its doors to preorders of Nendoroid's latest figure of Link (his Majora's Mask iteration), as well as a GameStop-exclusive stone statue of everyone's favourite fox in the sky, Fox McCloud. The former will retail for...
The Hero of Time is looking a bit more rugged (again)
Last week, we featured some concept renders of Link from The Legend of Zelda created by 343 Industries character designer Kyle Hefley. Sporting a more mature and realistic look, it was an interesting mix between east and west. We've unearthed another piece of Link art and it shares some...
Mysterious crossbow has chins wagging
When Hyrule Historia launched a while back, the inclusion of concept art for a female Link - christened "Linkle" - caused quite a bit of excitement. It seemed that Nintendo was at least considering swapping the gender of its famous Hero of Time - a trend which is proving to be quite popular in the world of...
Since the original Legend of Zelda was released on the NES in 1986, fairies have been an integral part of the series. In each iteration, these fairies have always shared common traits; with the ability to rejuvenate, enhance and often provide vital words of wisdom to the hero, Link. YouTuber – MasterOfHyrule – has payed tribute...
What can we expect from the next Zelda adventure?
The Legend of Zelda is due for release on the Wii U this year, provided the game isn't delayed. Yet, Nintendo has released very little on what we can expect from this next adventure. We've taken a look at what footage has been released so far and picked it apart to see if we can find out any new...
Gender bending in the name of gaming
Remember when Nintendo revealed the Wii U Zelda title at last year's E3, and many people jumped to the conclusion that Link was - y'know - a chick? Despite Nintendo's denials that Hyrule's famous warrior was switching genders for the next big adventure, many fans rightly asked why Link shouldn't be female for at...
All kinds of awesome
This writer has a soft-spot for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, in particular the art style and portrayals of Link and Zelda. Link has had a variety of unique designs, and the Wii entries' protagonist was one of the most expressive we've seen yet. Toys and figurines are also a favourite here on Nintendo Life, making the...
Finding common ground
Platinum Games really went all out with their port of the original Bayonetta to the Wii U. Giving Bayonetta the ability to cosplay as Princess Peach, Daisy, Link, and Samus Aran was a nice touch for Nintendo fans. The Mushroom Kingdom themed outfits replace combo-closing power strikes with Bowser's limbs, the Link costume...
Figurine of Time
It wasn't so long ago that developer comments regarding Hyrule Warriors led some to believe that amiibo support wouldn't be included, yet Nintendo of America has now confirmed quite the opposite — the Link amiibo toy will be compatible with Koei Tecmo's action title. You can see the tweet below, which oddly includes a rather...
He's even rocking the earring
The upcoming Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and its predecessor, have had plenty of crossover outfits. One confirmed long ago in Japan that has us particularly excited is the Link outfit and equipment, which promises to add some Legend of Zelda charm to the hunt. The official channel for the upcoming Ultimate release, in...
