This week on the Zelda Informer Podcast, Alfred makes a triumphant return to his co-hosting duties as our resident comic artist, Trey, and super fan Mason make appearances to discuss some unexpected NX leaks. With the NX leaks taking up a majority of the first half of the podcast, I wanted to reminded everyone of a rather amazing (and sad) story a fan shared with us and allowed us to share with all of you about how Nintendo is keeping a lost brother with someone special while playing Breath of the Wild...

Last year at Gamescom, fans were able to play a demo of the yet to be released Tri Force Heroes on Nintendo 3DS. All attendees had access to said demo, and many joined up with friends and strangers to experience the new Zelda title. This time around, Zelda is coming back to Gamescom with Breath of the Wild. However, only 50 fans will be selected for the experience, and there are certain requirements...

A new officially licensed Zelda dress is currently up for pre-order at Merchoid, called "Dress of the Wild". It features printed on buckles and a Hylian crest and is based upon Link himself. The sizes vary from small all the way to XXL, and will run you $36.99 USD. Clearly the name takes inspiration from Breath of the Wild, though some of the imagery notably references Ocarina of Time. Merchoid is taking pre-orders right now and will be shipping them world wide in September...

Fellow fan site Zelda Universe has been turning various Zelda games into movies for a while now, with their most recent being The Wind Waker. Act 1 and Act 2 have been out for some time now, and Act 3 has just released for your viewing pleasure. As with all of these projects, I can't help but wonder what The Legend of Zelda would look like as an animated movie or TV show. Oh wait.

It should be noted that Zelda Universe will be holding auditions for their next film endeavor, Twilight Princess: The Movie, very soon...

We've seen quite the surge of fan creativity since Breath of the Wild's showing at E3, with many talented fans sharing such projects as musicraps, and live-action shorts. Adding to collection of great fan works, artist BabaKinkin recently released a great BotW speed painting video onto YouTube. With a gorgeous portrayal of the Great Plateau at sunset, this painting effectively captures the overwhelming beauty to be found in the upcoming Zelda game...

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Breath of the Wild for obvious reasons, but one aspect we haven't really brought up are enemies. Assuredly Breath of the Wild will feature many new enemies (and already has), but it will also feature enemies we have seen before. Chuchus and Bokoblins are already counted among the enemies to return, but what else do you want to see make a comeback or appearance? Three are many options given the wide variance in enemy types over the years...

To the imaginative mind, or the obsessed Zelda fan, any household item can become a tribute to the kingdom of Hyrule. That includes light switch covers and outlet covers. I'm not joking. Etsy shop TheWheelmansWorkshop specializes in making customized light switch and outlet covers that you can buy to replace the boring, plain ones in your home. This particular one is a matching set of one outlet cover and one light switch cover featuring the Hylian Sheild on a black background...

As I am sure most every Zelda fan can agree, Zelda has some great music. Ranging from the peaceful lullabies to the hardcore boss battles, there is beautiful music to be found everywhere. So far, what we have seen of Breath of the Wild has not been disappointing when it comes to the music.It is not an uncommon practice for people to make piano tutorials out of Zelda music, and Breath of the Wild is no exception. YouTube channel Marioverehrer has uploaded the epic Steppe Talus theme from the Breath of the Wild footage as a piano tutorial of its own using the program Synthesia, a popular choice for song tutorials. 

ZeldaMaster uploaded his next segment of “Zelda Lore” onto YouTube. The topic of this installment is focused on the mysterious tribe of the Sheikah. ZeldaMaster notes that this tribe in particular seems to be the focus of the upcoming Zelda title,Breath of the Wild. ZeldaMaster begins with the basics of the Sheikah tribe—their first appearance chronologically to the Zelda timeline, which is Impa from Skyward Sword...

YouTuber and Zelda fan Nathan Sharpe, also known as NateWantsToBattle, just released a video for his song called Hero of Our Time based on The Legend of Zelda. If you are unfamiliar with his work, he has released other Zelda songs like Ganon's Gone (a parody of Gone Gone Gone), Dawn of The First Day among other great songs. Hero of Our Time can be found on his album Songs of Time which is a tribute to Ocarina of Time which is now available on iTunes...
