We all remember how painful tracking down amiibo were when they first came out back in 2014. It took me over a year to find a Ness figure, and I looked pretty much every time I walked by EB Games. Fast forward to the present date, and while securing the new Breath of the Wild amiibo hasn’t quite been as much of a challenge, its still been a challenge nonetheless. However, to all of our friends in Europe: if you…

IGN got their hands on one of those new First 4 Figures for Breath of the Wild depicting Archer Link standing 10 inches tall and made out of PVC. That bad boy looks absolutely stunning in their unboxing video and is available to purchase over at Best Buy. However, what is more interesting than the actual unboxing itself is that the included pamphlet unveils two yet to be announced Zelda figures for Breath of the Wild, including a Rider Link…

Parisanplayer is a speedrunner who is capable of beating all of A Link to the Past’s bosses while blidfolded. In this run, he exploits an Exploration Glitch that allows him to power up faster than playing through the game normally. Since he needs to defeat all the bosses, Parisianplayer is not allowed to use the exploration glitch to skip to the end of the game. Watching Parisianplayer complete his feat is impressive. The entire run takes him over nine hours to complete….

SwankyBox provides a detailed analysis of one of his favorite locations from The Wind Waker. He recalls how often he would return to the introductory island while playing through the game. He says that he loved the fact that the island acknowledges the accomplishments of the Hero of Time from Ocarina of Time. SwankyBox also recounts how much he related to exploring Outset Island from top to bottom, because he lived in a rural area where there wasn’t much to do, other than…

Voice acting is finally gracing a canon Zelda game with the next chapter in the franchise. Breath of the Wild makes use of it for some characters, but is still leaving Link as a silent protagonist. Make no mistake, not every person you meet will audibly speak works. Series producer Eiji Aonuma says voice acting will be used where he wants to make an impression. I’ve seen a lot of outcry regarding the lack of dual audio in Breath of the Wild. In…

HMK recently uploaded a video in which he speculates the presence of potential Sheikah defectors in Breath of the Wild. He noted a mysterious character present in the newest  Breath of the Wild trailer. HMK quickly observes that the character is garbed in red clothing and wears a mask that resembles the Mask of Truth, but the Sheikah eye on the mask has been turned upside down. With this information, HMK speculates that the Sheikah could be warring in Breath of the…

A recent Breath of The Wild trailer analysis by YouTuber Gagz Gaming reveals a potential connection between several characters shown in the most recent trailer and the Hylian Royal Family. The analysis points out that in the trailer a blue scarf can be seen on the Goron character, the female Zora, and the bow-armed Bird Person. These scarfs are the same hue as the blue Champions Tunic that Link is shown wearing in most promotional material for Breath of Wild. The…

Just like with other gigantic gaming fandoms, Zelda fans hate major spoilers for upcoming titles in their series. In actuality though, we don’t mind some of the minor ones that keep us informed. Well sadly Nintendo is not exactly in the same mindset as we are. Take for the fact that they apparently removed an Amazon UK listing for a Breath of the Wild strategy guide. Not too long ago, we reported that a Breath of the Wild strategy guide…

What a year it’s been for Zelda fans. With the never-ending odyssey that has been The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s release and development schedule finally drawing to a close, we can now finally take a breath and start thinking about the next game in the Zelda series. Unless you were living under a rock, you probably noticed a lot of vitriol being spewed by different factions of Zelda fans after a comment that series producer Eiji Aonuma…

Greetings, Zelda fans! I’m back to kick off yet another entry in ZI’s weekly Caption Contest. With the road to Breath of the Wild at its final stretch, Nintendo has graced me with plenty of screenshots to get us all the way to release. Last week highlighted the drama we’re due to see in the upcoming game, and this week will focus on one of the hopefully many boss characters.
