Some Nintendo games seem like they are part of an epic crossover, or that they at least take elements from each other. Specifically, there are some interesting crossovers between both the Mario and Zelda games.  Dr. Wily on YouTube has compiled a list of these items and creatures. A couple of examples are the Recorder from The Legend of Zelda, and the Warp Whistle from Super Mario Brothers 3 and how certain creatures from the Mario games appear in Hyrule. I find it interesting how these games have generated…

Greetings, ZI fans. Are you all up for yet another Zelda Informer Caption Contest? The release of Breath of the Wild‘s first DLC is only a few days away, so the contest has been highlighting the new features heading to the game.

Breath of the Wild: Before the Fall The Hylian Army was able to ward off the attack, but it left a lot of damage. The Military Training camp was gone, nothing but ruins left. Link stayed around to help clean up long enough for Mipha to tell him to go home. “You’ve done enough Link, you need to rest.” She said gently. He gestured to the mess of bodies and damage around him. “We will take care it.” She assured,…

Warning: Possible Spoilers Ahead One of the unique things about Breath of the Wild are the shrines located throughout the vast kingdom. These shrines in a way, are very much like a mini-dungeon and test your skills as you figure out how to navigate the shrine. There are also Shrine Quests that come in puzzles or riddles and the player has to figure out how to reveal one of these shrines. These Shrine Quests can also be challenging but provide…

The following article is one I wrote for a series of weekly editorials that appear on my blog called Epic Disasters in Video Game History. As the title suggests, the articles examine some particularly… dubious situations in the history of the video game medium to determine exactly what went wrong and the long term ramifications of these blunders. While most of them don’t deal with The Legend of Zelda in particular, this one did, and I thought that some of…

Hey there, friends. I was a bit too busy trekking around E3 last week to post a new contest, but I have returned, with plenty of new screenshots from the upcoming Breath of the Wild DLC no less. The Switch game’s first DLC pack The Master Trials drops later this month, adding several new costumes to Link’s wardrobe. One outfit featured in the latest trailer was the Tingle costume, and something that fabulous just couldn’t be ignored by the Caption…
