The Zelda franchise has many powerful items for Link to acquire and use on his journeys. Some of these are quite mundane, such as the Ball and Chain from Twilight Princess while others are unique, such as the Dominion Rod and the Gale Boomerang. The Boomerang is actually a topic of discussion for YouTuber and Zelda theorycrafter Dr. Wily. He has uploaded a theory video on the origins of the weapon, with his hypothesis being that the item was a sacred tool to help regulate the…

Like many, I freaking loved having a house in Breath of the Wild to show off all my weapons, as well as having a patch of virtual land to call my very own, tucked away in the sleepy hills of Hateno Village. I just wish I had the option to do more with it! Perhaps its just my Animal Crossing gland shifting into hyperdrive, but I would have loved the option to decorate a house in Hyrule, or maybe even…

Welcome to the Cave of Trials. The premise is simple: Every week, two characters from The Legend of Zelda series will duke it out for the Zelda Informer Championship. Whoever has more votes at the end of the week, wins. This is strictly a popularity contest, not who you think would win in a fight; so vote for who you like better! The winner will then go on next week to defend the title against a new challenger, as decided…

One of the best things about modding is getting everything or anyone you want in a video game. We’ve seen some amazing mod skills lately, with things like Zelda mods being added into Fallout 4. And speaking of Zelda, one such modder has decided to add someone you completely wouldn’t expect to Breath of the Wild. WilianZilv is a mod creator who has just added Carl Johnson from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to Breath of the Wild. This isn’t the…

Like with all great Zelda games, there’s always some mystery to unravel, whether it’s something as simple as beating the Running Man in Ocarina of Time, or even trying to figure out how to get to the Chris Houlihan room in A Link to the Past. The topic we’re looking at today uncovers a long-running mystery in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. In a recent mini-episode of Shesez’s Boundary Break series, he takes a look at the biggest mystery in Zelda…

Warning: Video is slightly NSFW.  The Game Grumps have been playing games for five years now, and, for as long as they’ve been around, talented artists have been taking snippets of their videos and animating them into hilarious video clips. Brandon Zalar is one of these talented artists. One of his most recent videos is an animation from the Game Grump’s playthrough of Ocarina of Time. This animated clip puts us in the moment in which the Game Grumps meet…

Breath of the Wild is known for its peaceful and beautiful music. At first, it seems like it would be impossible to improve upon such beauty, but we are always finding great fan covers that do just that. Musician Hari Sivan brings us a neat cover of Daruk’s theme played on piano.  This cover is extremely well done, and its clear, melodic sound is something you will want to play on repeat as you sleep or study. It’s funny to think that a…

Great news for amiibo-hungry Zelda fans in the United States. The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) released two more Children’s Product Certificates on September 18th and 19th, both for Zelda amiibo — the first for the Super Smash Bros. Princess Zelda figure, the second for Toon Link. What’s exciting about the latter amiibo is that it appears it will be released on its own, not coupled with the Toon Zelda amiibo as it had exclusively been when first sold…

I remember as a kid seeing Deku Link for the first time in a game manual, a sad and strange mutation of our hero that I was desperate to know more about. When I started playing Majora’s Mask, I loved toddling about Clock Town, spinning through grass and leaping in and out of flowers as I awaited the eventual apocalypse. It was a refreshing twist to play as Link outside his human form, despite the circumstances. Additionally being able to…
