Discussion about the lore and story of the Zelda series is one of the most important elements of our community, as nearly every detail of every game has sparked analysis, debate, and theories. Generally, we fans take the plot, dialogue, and details of each title at face value, accepting what is presented to us in our respective region’s version of that title. This practice doesn’t lead to many problems, but every so often, we find certain inconsistencies among the different…

XO Music uploaded a remix of Ocarina of Time‘s “Song of Time” to SoundCloud and YouTube. The remix starts out by retaining the familiar six notes, though they are executed through a different flute that sounds more like a pan flute than an ocarina. From there, Navi’s sound effect and a piano join the flute, and the tempo of the song ascends. A drum beat and clapping accompanies the piano, causing the remix to have more of a techno feel. The tune…

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 by…

In a fairly recent video, NintendoBlackCrisis tries to tackle the mystery of the Seven Heroines in Breath of the Wild. He begins by looking at the Gerudo script that’s found on the statues themselves and translating it into English. He’s somewhat shocked to discover that the script reads “The Seven Sages”, but, NintendoBlackCrisis immediately tries to line up the Heroines with the Seven Sages across various Zelda titles. The connections he makes between the Seven Sages and the Heroines are loose speculation…

In Breath of the Wild, we have seen a number of places throughout the land of Hyrule that were once bustling places. Unfortunately, after Calamity Ganon’s attack, many of these places are now destroyed and stood as a reminder of the kingdom’s prosperity. One of the ruins located in central Hyrule are the Coliseum Ruins. These ruins greatly resemble the Roman Colosseum, and as Hick from TwoGuysPlayingZelda explains, likely had a similar purpose. Although much of the history of these…

The 35th annual Golden Joystick Awards took place today, with the best and brightest games of 2017 earning their spot in the history books. Despite some stiff competition, with a grand collection of excellent games releasing over the past year, Breath of the Wild took home four Golden Joystick awards, including the highly coveted Ultimate Game of the Year award. Series producer Eiji Aonuma, art director Satoru Takizawa, technical director Takuhiro Dohta, and sound director Hajime Wakai delivered an acceptance…

It definitely was not the safest route. The thorny thicket was scattered around, cutting through, around, and over the path, leaving little room for maneuvering. It seemed almost as if the foliage was alive as it appeared to move in the fog. The area itself was definitely not a welcoming one, the thorns growing thicker as the pair progressed deeper. There seemed to be no end in sight, but Link spotted a sign that said “Forbidden Woods Entry.” It was…

Despite what you may think of the game as a whole, you can probably agree that Skyward Sword did have some good moments. However, there were a few events in the game that you either loved or hated. After giving the player a false sense of calm, they were more than likely to induce anxiety once things began to go crazy. I’m talking, of course, about the Silent Realm trials. There were four in the game with one for each…

Last week on the Zelda Challenge, Kevin and I debated which game in The Legend of Zelda series we thought takes longer to appreciate. This week we do a sequel of sorts and discuss which games still don’t receive the praise they have earned. Certain titles in the series just don’t get the recognition they deserve. Even when they do, one wonders why they don’t get the same amount of respect as some of the most highly regarded games in the franchise. I personally believe…

Hello everyone! It’s good to be back again this week. Remember to let me know of any ideas for new challenges in future, or if you want to see old challenges come back much later down the road. Last Week’s Challenge Last week, we asked you to submit art the Guardian in Breath of the Wild. While we did not receive an usually large amount of art submissions like we did last week, we did receive a few terrific submissions!…
