Earlier this month we talked about a new book called the Hyrule Graphics Art Book, , a book that promised to contain all of the official art from the entirety of the series. In the west we are receiving something very similar, though under a new name called The Legend of Zelda: Arts & Artifacts. The big difference between this book and that book at the outset is that this one will contain art from the whole series through Breath of the Wild (it may even be possible that it contains yet to be released...

Here's a good way to start the day: With only a couple of months until Breath of the Wild's planned release, YouTuber Everything Amiibo has created a video containing some funny and epic fails from the game called "Link Or Swim". The fails include (but are not limited to): Sliding down hills, Drowning, Wolf Link living the thug life and also an epic fall down a cliff. Needless to say, this video has made my day...

The Legend of Zelda - Legendary Edition has the first volume arriving this November. It is a series that collects multiple volumes of the same manga together into bigger collections for a more concise collection. The first volume includes two volumes from the Ocarina of Time manga series. Thanks to Amazon, we now have a fresh look at both the front and back covers of it. it looks pretty stunning, though a bit similar (in my opinion) to Hyrule Historia. You can nab a pre-order here...

Breath of the Wild's pre-release awards continue to pile up. After winning practically every possible game of show award it could at E3, Breath of the Wild has now taken home the best of Gamescom award, which was given by the official Gamescom website. It also won best Wii U game, but that's obviously a side note as you aren't going to win best of show as an exclusive and not be the best game on your given platform. I think at this point we've gotten all we really need to get for this title...

One of the most famous songs in the The Legend of Zelda is Zelda's Lullaby. Contrary to popular belief, the song made its debut in A Link To The Past but it has appeared in several other installments such as Twilight Princess, The Minish Cap and many more. Even though it is a simple tune it always gets to evoke a warm, fuzzy feeling in each fan. This time, YouTuber MandoPony does his rendition but with a twist: He plays the song using a mandolin! His version gives off a soothing, relaxing vibe that makes it impossible not to unwind while listening to it...

Dr. Wily uploaded a theory on the origins of Majora’s Mask’s Odolwa to YouTube. While Dr. Wily realizes that some people believe the game’s first boss to be African in nature, he presents a different possibility. Dr. Wily believes that Odolwa is, in fact, Mayan. He notes that some of the characteristics of Mayan warriors do not completely fit all aspects of Odolwa’s design. Despite this, he feels that the Mayan influence brings more insight into Majora’s Mask’s story...

Whether or not Ocarina of Time falls on your list of favorite Zelda games, you have to admit that it helped ocarina playing reach a new level of popularity. Many people reach for this instrument as a way to bring Zelda music to life and, from personal experience, it's one of the easiest instruments to learn. With the impending release of Breath of the Wild taunting us, we will eventually have a whole new world of Zelda music to cherish. From what we have seen in the trailer so far, the music is fantastic...
