amiibo fever has always been hit and miss with me. Yesterday, I picked up the Cloud and Zero Suit Samus amiibo, but my last purchase before then was some of the Breath of the Wild characters. Looking at my collection now, which consists of only about twenty or so figures, it made me realize that I’m pretty particular about the amiibo I’m willing to spend money on. I have to A) like the character, and B) it has to be…

Just when we thought we’ve found everything in regards to speedrunning the beloved N64 entry, speedrunner Exodus122 has found another glitch in Ocarina of Time that enables the player to equip items anytime, both as kid and adult Link. The method works like this: The player must enter the item subscreen and mark the cursor over the item they wish to equip, then move with either Z or L to the equipment screen or map, respectively. After that, the player must return to…

Breath of the Wild remains to be a popular subject in the minds and hearts of Zelda fans. It has to be the biggest and most advanced title yet,  but some might think that it lacks that old “8-bit charm” that games used to have. This is a problem easily solved thanks to Loeder, a YouTube music artist who specializes in 8-bit renditions of popular game music. This time around, Loeder bring us a nice rendition of the Hateno Village theme….

In every Zelda game, Link travels to the distant corners of Hyrule to explore dungeons, defeat the bosses, and then tackle the final boss with everything you’ve learned and obtained. And once you defeat the final boss, you’re thanked by Zelda and proclaimed as the Hero of Hyrule! But, why did Link originally begin his quest that led him to this moment? What was his original intention for doing what he did? Link’s intentions varies game by game so today, I…

The main theme from Breath of the Wild is an awesome melody that will probably give Zelda players the chills for many years to come. Making its debut in the game’s official trailer last year in June, the theme really set the tone for Breath of the Wild and gave the game its sense of adventure and openness. Although the original version is quite amazing, a group of Zelda-loving musicians recently came together and made their own cover of this memorable song. The group…

In a recent episode of the Hyrule Compendium, we discuss what some of our most memorable Mini-Bosses in the Legend of Zelda series are. In order to keep this video from going on forever, we narrowed it down to just three options for each of us. Mini-Bosses have made appearances in the earliest of Zelda games and have since become a vital role in the series, with games like Majora’s Mask or Twilight Princess having mini-bosses in virtually every single…

One of the worst kept secrets heading into this years E3 was the unveiling of the Mario Bros. and Rabbids crossover game, Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. While the announcement may have been a bit predictable, there’s no denying that crossover makes sense, as the aesthetics of both worlds fit together quite nicely, and both series share the same quirky charm about them. I dare say I even think the game looks pretty good. While putting Mario and Rabbids together seems like…

Game design guru Marc Brown tackles A Link Between Worlds‘s dungeon set up in a new segment of his video series Boss Keys. Marc first analyzes the overworld of A Link Between Worlds before focusing on the dungeons, noting that the overworld and dungeon routes are much more open than in previous Zelda entries. While many praised the game’s open design, Marc mentions that this openess actually makes the dungeon design suffer. He points out that items being available for rent actually takes the item, and…

They include some theories about what likely happened between games where there has yet to be an official explanation of what happened to the Zora during those times. Their video provides everything one needs to become familiar with the iconic aquatic characters. Check out the video for yourselves, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
