Poes have always been my favorite enemies in the Zelda series. The lantern-wielding wights have gone through myriad iterations, but lately, have been appearing less and less in the series. Most noteworthy was their omission from Breath of the Wild where whimsical Wizzrobes instead skipped about, flitting in and out of reality as they hailed all kinds of elemental carnage upon Link. In Skyward Sword they were similarly demoted to Watchers within the Silent Realm, not invisible ghouls ready for battle. We’ve previously…

The settings of the Zelda series are rich in culture and rich in history. Every location that Link may visit can be seen as the culmination of years of progress and development. Sometimes this history has resulted in a sprawling city or certain technological achievements, but more often than not, the years can cause a settlement to fall to ruin. A person can find plenty of abandoned villages or ancient ruins while exploring the worlds of Zelda; some of these…

Ghost Week has begun, everyone! The site will soon be infested with wandering spirits and mischievous souls. There’s simply no stopping the inevitable, so let’s just release them all as soon as possible. One particularly nasty ghost has been trapped in a Horned Statue for centuries, and he’s just dying to be free. If you played Breath of the Wild, you know that this demonic entity strikes a hard bargain; it’s about time we negotiate his freedom.

Halloween approaches, ladies and gentlemen. And as the air gets brisk and the days grow darker, we can almost hear voices from beyond the grave crying out for some well-deserved attention. The Legend of Zelda has always embraced the supernatural in one way or another, which is why we’re officially kicking off our very first Ghost Week. For the next seven days, Zelda Informer will host a devilish display of paranormal content, celebrating the many ghosts, ghouls, specters, spirits, and phantoms from the Zelda franchise….

Warning: Contains some spoilers. By now most players know that Breath of the Wild’s story is pretty serious and actually quite morose. It deals with a Hyrule in decay as Zelda and her five champions failed to protect it from the rise of Calamity Ganon 100 years prior. So naturally, to lighten the mood, we need to turn the story into a musical and make a parody of the whole thing. YouTube user LHUGUENY does just that, using quirky animation…

Between fan-created videos, April Fool’s jokes, and an actual cartoon series back in ’89, the Zelda series has been an oft-talked about topic when it comes to media adaptations. Some of these ideas have been well executed while others leave much to be desired. Many fans have expressed a desire to see the Zelda universe translated to the big screen in either a TV or motion picture format, yet Nintendo has been noticeably silent on the subject. Speculation abounds as to why…

Nintendo UK is currently holding two #ZeldaMoments contests to commemorate Breath of the Wild’s success, and recognize some devoted UK fans. The second competition is the “#ZeldaMoments Creation Contest.” For this one, fans must create something that represents their favorite moment from Breath of the Wild and post a picture of it onto Instagram or Twitter, along with the ZeldaMoments hashtag. Two winners will receive an all expenses paid trip to see the Symphony of the Goddesses in London! The…

In celebration of Breath of the Wild’s “breath-taking year,” Nintendo UK is honoring a handful of UK Zelda fans through two contests. The first is the “Your #ZeldaMoments Contest.” To enter, fans just need to post a short video talking about their favorite Breath of the Wild moment onto Instagram or Twitter, and include the ZeldaMoments hashtag. Contest prizes include an all expenses paid trip to Nintendo UK, a Zelda themed goody bag, and a £100 Nintendo eShop credit. Keep…

There’s an in-game item within A Link to the Past that tells of the lore and stories of the land of Hyrule; the Book of Mudora. While this item doesn’t give us everything in terms of Hylian backstory, the book does help translate ancient scripture in certain areas. It even helps Link obtain unique items like the Ether and Bombos Medallions. The version of the Book of Mudora we’re looking at today doesn’t do any of that, but still remains…

Ahh the Tingle Tuner. For those fortunate enough to have a Gameboy Advance Link Cable, players of the original Wind Waker could make use of a special item that allowed another player to join in on the action as green-clad fairy fancier Tingle. Using the Gameboy Advance’s screen, players could scope out the map of the player, a glowing green icon moving across the 3D world of the main game, looking for hints, bestowing unique powers onto Link and even…
