This week, we spent an hour with Nick Wozniak, the man behind the art of Yacht Club Games' Shovel Knight! We interview him about the game, what it's like working in the kickstarter format, and his thoughts on several topics regarding our favorite Hylian Hero. Your four swords for this week are...

Another year, another batch of rumors that in all likelihood are false. I start it off like this not because we have any real reason to doubt The Hidden Triforce or their source, but just based on our own experience in reporting on E3 rumors about the Zelda series these past 7 years. I have learned a lot over the years about vetting sources, ensuring that any rumor that originates from our site is something we can put some real faith in. That being said, The Hidden Triforce has recently gotten some information that seems almost too good to be true...

Even though Majora's Mask 3D came out four months ago, it's still selling like hot cakes and Nintendo plans to ride on that hype train until its last puff of smoke. Nintendo's new summer commercial showcases gameplay of Majora's Mask 3D, as well as various other games, in attempt to convey the message that "Summertime is playtime."

Not only has Nintendo included gameplay footage of Majora's Mask 3D...

I've listened to my fair share of piano-centered Zelda covers before, but this is certainly one of the best. Hearing it will take you right back to playing Skyward Sword for the first time. Even if you're not a fan of Fi, or haven't played Skyward Sword, you have to admit that this piano cover is very masterful.

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 3, a game that is slated to arrive to the 3DS on June 30th, has DLC content with allows you to use Link and Zelda-inspired costumes from Hyrule Warriors. There is a catch however, as these costumes will only be available in Japan, as revealed by Koei Tecmo, the company that co-produced Hyrule Warriors with Nintendo.

The costumes can be unlocked in the full game (in Japan) by playing its demo on the 3DS eShop. Unfortunately, if you have...

It's Friday once again, and that of course means we've got another ZI Photoshop Contest on our hands. Some might remember the contest's old format in which only a few images were handed out that contestants could 'shop in any way they wanted. This week, we're aiming to bring back that format and give you artists a bit more freedom. Before you all go crazy with that freedom however, we need to first look at last week's contest: The Postman's New Life...

Throughout some the of best 3D titles of The Legend of Zelda series, we've seen some pretty iconic places: mystical forests, frozen peaks, and mysterious temples. But what I'd like to discuss today is the area that binds them all together in a single world. Today, we are going to take a look back at the overworld zones, their best features, and what we'd enjoy seeing most in future titles...

Today, I stumbled across what may be the best cover of a Zelda II song that I have ever heard. The strange thing? It's only on one instrument.

Usually the most successful Zelda covers consist of multiple musicians, or one musician recording himself playing different instruments. This special 12 string acoustic cover of Zelda II's Battle Theme only uses one guitar...

Come one, come all, for the sixth edition of The Fan Art Showdown! Those who follow our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter might know that The Fan Art Showdown is now accepting submissions.

What does this mean? Well, before, I chose random pieces of fan art from DeviantART for this contest, but now, anyone is able to submit their drawings/paintings etc. by emailing me at...

Earlier this year, we reported that Viz would be releasing their reprint of Nintendo Power's classic A Link to the Past graphic novel, which released earlier this month. As many of you know, A Link to the Past is my favorite game of the series, so it goes without saying that I would recommend this item. However, it appears that I'm not the only one who feels this way. The graphic novel recently made the Globe and Mail Best Sellers List in Canada. While it barely made the list by squeezing into the 10th spot, it is still quite the accomplishment considering...
