The Adventure of Link is often considered the black sheep of the Zelda family. Despite being one of the best-selling games in the entire series, many of today’s Zelda fans still haven’t played the title, while others have likely never completed the adventure. By today’s standards, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is an extremely difficult game and lacks the mass appeal other adventures offer.

Yet, can the black sheep actually be the best offering in the series? While the aim of this article series isn’t to convince anyone one way or the other, I will admit going in that this is my favorite game in the series. While I will try to remove some of my personal bias and stick to the facts, I wanted to be upfront about this. The Adventure of Link may be the best Zelda in the series, so let’s explore how this could be possible.

Internet celebrity iJustine managed to sit down with The Legend of Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto, along with translator Bill Trinen, and ask them a couple of questions about upcoming games. After learning more about the size of Zelda U's world and how it'll influence the gameplay, they eventually reached the topic of amiibo support. She asked about how the amiibo would be integrated into the new Star Fox or Zelda games, to which he replied...

Starbomb is an American comedy supergroup that produces parody songs of popular video game franchises. With the recent release of their second album, "Player Select", comes a brand new The Legend of Zelda parody titled "The Hero of Rhyme". The song consists of Link attempting to save Hyrule using only the power of his voice and rapping skills. As you can guess, it doesn't really go all that well for him. If you'd like to hear the song...

In a recent interview with iJustine, Shigeru Miyamoto has shared some interesting facts about the initial development plan for the world in Zelda U. He explains that, with every Zelda game, they always try to present Hyrule as this big world for the player to explore. Due to the hardware limitations of previous consoles, the only way they could achieve this was by segmenting each area and then piecing them together. Thanks to the hardware capabilities of the Wii U, they decided to try and approach this idea differently. They started off by creating a world the size of...

YouTube star iJustine recently posted an interview on her channel that she conducted with Shigeru Miyamoto and Bill Trinen from Nintendo. She talked many topics, but, of course, the new Zelda game came up eventually. Check out what Miyamoto had to say...

Well, just about everyone has assumed this by now, and we even did a report less than a month ago on a piece that seemed to confirm Grezzo's involvement in the upcoming 2015 release of Majora's Mask 3D, but until now there hasn't been official confirmation. A rating from Australia lists Grezzo as the developer of the game, finally confirming what we all suspected...

Of all the games that Link has a companion, who was your favourite? Many Zelda fans, including myself, might say that Midna would be the most witty and fun to work with. In saying this: was Twilight Princess really about Midna being Link's companion, or was it that Link followed Midna?

Welcome to a new article series at Zelda Informer, where I explore every game in the series to determine why some may feel that game is the best Zelda game ever made. The goal is not only to explore the positive aspects of each game, but to give an idea of the very different reasons each of us enjoy the Zelda series, which is why no one game will ever be universally accepted as the best. No right or wrong answer exists for which game you feel is the best, but maybe this series will get you to look at some games in a new light.

The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Entertainment System is one title most Zelda fans are at least aware of. It started the entire series and gave us at least one thing that has stayed true in every game to date: the theme song for the entire series. Despite being the first in the series, it can arguably stand as one of the greatest — maybe even the best depending on your personal tastes. Let’s explore what makes this game possibly the greatest Zelda game of them all.

Pianist and composer Sonya Belousova of PlayerPianoMusic.com demonstrates her musical skill as she hears snippets of and improvises on beloved video-game themes like, Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter, Kid Icarus, and, of course, The Legend of Zelda. Since authors here at ZeldaInformer recently have put out a fair amount of literature on Koji Kondo's favorite musical themes, projects, and so forth, this video attests to the cultural and artistic capital he has gained even in performance practices long associated with classical-music traditions.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has been out for less than a month, but that isn't going to stop Nintendo fans the world over from taking advantage of the custom stage builder. While I have seen several custom stages since the game was released, I felt like I should feature some of the very best Zelda stages I have come across to this point. Of course we encourage everyone to share their own custom stages, Zelda themed or otherwise, in the comments below. We would love to see some of the neat creations our fans have come up with! Otherwise enjoy...
