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…

An awkward silence had fallen  over the group. Link finally broke it by saying,  “Let’s just start moving toward Goron City,” trying to keep his voice even and polite. Zelda, still a few feet away took a deep breath. Walking back to the group she announced. “Yes, we need to pick the next champion and then make our way to Gerudo Town.” Everyone else agreed, remembering the bigger task at hand. They still had a lot to do.  After gathering…

The Legend of Zelda series is know for it’s plethora of unique items and weapons, though in most games there’s always the traditional Bombs, Boomerang, and Bow. However, some games have added expanded utility in each item. The Bombs have had different variants in the form of Bombchus, Water Bombs, Bomblings, and Remote Bombs. The Gale Boomerang provided in interesting mechanic in Twilight Princess and is currently the only variant in the series thus far. Finally, the Bow has seen its…

One of the sweetest ways you can surprise your significant other is by proposing to them when they least expect it. That’s what J.R. Gallarza did to surprise his now fiancée, Holly Wolf, at Fan Expo amongst hundreds of people. In addition to the proposal, Holly was attending the event cosplaying as Princess Zelda from Breath of the Wild, so J.R. went the extra mile and had a bouquet of blue flowers ready for when he popped the question. Though…

In the past several years, Nintendo has taken to remaking older Zelda games and re-releasing them for modern consoles. But is this a good thing or a bad thing? In some cases, the updated graphics can make the game cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing, such as in Wind Waker or Twilight Princess. However, with others, it seems to lose some of the older charm the game offers, as in Ocarina of Time. It can even change the ambiance of certain…

A new world record was set yesterday in the Zelda Speedrunning scene, as Ennopp112 beat The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in record time. Using a new glitch that was found in Ocarina of Time  called Item Duping, Ennopp was able to shave some time off the previous record (see the glitch in action right here; it’s really cool!) The glitch in Majora’s Mask is used for the Zora Eggs which saves about 5 minutes off in the Any% speedrun. Ennopp…

According to recent Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) updates, three Link amiibo figures are being reprinted and will be back on North American store shelves soon. CPSIA Children’s Product Certificates issued on September 12th indicate that the Majora’s Mask, 8-Bit, and Super Smash Bros. Link models were all re-manufactured in August and are being imported by Nintendo of America. There’s no evidence suggesting that any other Link or Zelda amiibo are being reissued apart from these three. If these…

From the Money Making game from the original Legend of Zelda to Breath of the Wild‘s multitude of mini games, the Legend of Zelda series has given us quite a few distractions on our journey to save Hyrule (Or Termina, Holodrum, Lorule, Labrynna, Hytopia, etc…). While most mini games resulted in a rupee reward, there were quite a handful that would reward the player with Heart Pieces or Item Upgrades to help incentivize the player. However, with all these options,…

Happy Monday, everyone. Let’s get the week started off right with another ZI Caption Contest. I’ve never really considered myself an artist, but I do think I can recognize artistic talent when I see it. And I just have to say that Pikango, the travelling painter from Breath of the Wild, is one of the most gifted visionaries I have ever seen. Those trees are simply gorgeous; that sun, divine. His art is so transcendent that we simply must assign…
