Hello, friends. It’s the start of a new week, which means we’re starting up another Zelda Informer Caption Contest. The contest last week was home to the grandest Cucco conspiracy the Zelda series has ever seen. But the chicken scrawlings on the wall begged what is perhaps the most universal of all questions. Which came first: the chicken or the egg?

Fast traveling between shrines in Breath of the Wild is now a thing of the past when you can just fly your very own Guardian through the skies of Hyrule. YouTube user nesis has put together a video guide that takes us step by step on how to fly a Guardian. It sounds difficult, but nesis makes it look so easy. All they use is the Guardian, a raft, the Cryonis rune, and a Korok leaf. Can you imagine trying to get a…

Looking to add to your collection of Zelda goodies? In case a custom Zelda monopoly game and a string of Zelda-themed puzzles weren’t enough, USAopoly has come out with an Ocarina of Time inspired chess set in tribute of the beloved franchise, and it’s currently on sale here through Amazon. Normally going for $74.99, the chess set is currently $13.00 off and includes 32 custom Zelda figurines. Naturally, Link is featured as the king of the Heroes pieces, and Ganondorf…

The official guide for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild contains two lengthy messages from two very important people regarding the game’s development. Series producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi talk about making the game, and give their general thoughts about it. You can read their comments in full below. “In re-examining the convention that Zelda games are played on a set path, we decided to implement a groundbreaking new play style that would allow players to go…

Perhaps the strangest and most unique character to be introduced in Breath of the Wild would be Kass, the traveling Rito musician who gives Link different quests to find the different Shrines scattered about Hyrule. It’s often comforting to travel through Hyrule only to run into Kass along the path, near a stable, or in the middle of what seems like nowhere, with our only way of knowing he is around being his accordion. YouTuber Mr. ACCORDIAN uploaded a video where he…

Some people watch the video games sales charts quite carefully, and those people will be pleased or upset to learn that Breath of the Wild finished its first month at #2. The data was compiled by NDP, who release monthly sales charts. The top five selling games for the month of March were Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Horizon: Zero Dawn and MLB 17: The Show. Breath of the Wild sold around 900,000 physical units, and this chart…

The dungeons in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have been received as somewhat of a mixed bag. While they cleverly allow you to manipulate the dungeons themselves through the use of your Sheikah Slate, they were typically barren and devoid of enemies, which led to them being a little on the easy side. While I was personally a little underwhelmed at the dungeons (they felt a little more like 5 Shrines mashed together than a intricate dungeon),…

This week, Andy and I, as well as a fellow writer from the site discuss a few topics. First, we hit on the next line of Zelda Amiibo coming out. Then, we discuss Breath of the Wild‘s dungeons. And finally, we get to our titular discussion of whether or not we think The Legend of Zelda should ever end. Sorry that the layout isn’t that fancy. I’m swimming in term papers and I’ve been having technical difficulties with the Adobe…

Warning: Spoilers ahead. Since jumping into the third dimension with Ocarina of Time, the Zelda series has had a knack for populating its worlds with memorable characters. Some titles have stronger casts than others, but virtually every mainline 3D entry boasts at least one character who stands alongside my favorite gaming personalities. They’re the characters whose faces I immediately see whenever I think about their respective games. Whether it’s The Wind Waker’s Tetra, Groose from Skyward Sword, or my all-time favorite…

Warning: Possible spoilers ahead. If you have been playing Breath of the Wild nonstop since its release date, you may have noticed how this Princess Zelda is unique in her own special way. Not only is Zelda a little rebellious, but she is an intelligent young woman. She spends her time doing research and investigating the shrines and tries her best to live up to the expectations as the Princess of Hyrule. If you’re still not convinced, you need to…
