This week on the Zelda Informer Podcast, Alfred makes a triumphant return to his co-hosting duties as our resident comic artist, Trey, and super fan Mason make appearances to discuss some unexpected NX leaks. With the NX leaks taking up a majority of the first half of the podcast, I wanted to reminded everyone of a rather amazing (and sad) story a fan shared with us and allowed us to share with all of you about how Nintendo is keeping a lost brother with someone special while playing Breath of the Wild...

The Zelda games certainly have a lot of items. There is everything from sticks to bottles, to captured fairies and fire rods. We've often talked about some of our favorite items in the series, but this is a different sort of debate. Instead of focusing on individual items, let's look at collections of items on the whole, Specifically, which game contains your favorite collection of items on the whole? For me, I'm a sucker for Majora's Mask, because each mask felt useful and had a story behind it. I loved the abilities the masks allowed me to have, even beyond the four transformation masks...

Every week, Zelda Informer reports on the weekly Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop charts. Why every week, you ask? It's because every week there is at least one Zelda game that sells very well among the hundreds of games available to download. We understand these posts can become a tad monotonous, but to ignore these charts would go against the ZI mentality of reporting all news pertaining to The Legend of Zelda, no matter how big or small. Plus, some enjoy seeing what particular Zelda titles sold well in the past week...

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. What say you to another entry in Zelda Informer's weekly Photoshop Contest? Before we begin, I must admit that this week's theme is going to be a little weird. Somewhat inspired by the release of the Yooka-Laylee Toybox earlier this week, I wanted to frame a contest around an unlikely pair of Zelda characters. After mulling it over, I have decided to focus on a Lizalfos and a Deku Scrub. What adventures would these vastly different beasts have if asked to work together? Show us your ideas, as well as check out the winners of last week's contest: Rise of the Machines...

Last year at Gamescom, fans were able to play a demo of the yet to be released Tri Force Heroes on Nintendo 3DS. All attendees had access to said demo, and many joined up with friends and strangers to experience the new Zelda title. This time around, Zelda is coming back to Gamescom with Breath of the Wild. However, only 50 fans will be selected for the experience, and there are certain requirements...

A new officially licensed Zelda dress is currently up for pre-order at Merchoid, called "Dress of the Wild". It features printed on buckles and a Hylian crest and is based upon Link himself. The sizes vary from small all the way to XXL, and will run you $36.99 USD. Clearly the name takes inspiration from Breath of the Wild, though some of the imagery notably references Ocarina of Time. Merchoid is taking pre-orders right now and will be shipping them world wide in September...

Fellow fan site Zelda Universe has been turning various Zelda games into movies for a while now, with their most recent being The Wind Waker. Act 1 and Act 2 have been out for some time now, and Act 3 has just released for your viewing pleasure. As with all of these projects, I can't help but wonder what The Legend of Zelda would look like as an animated movie or TV show. Oh wait.

It should be noted that Zelda Universe will be holding auditions for their next film endeavor, Twilight Princess: The Movie, very soon...

We've seen quite the surge of fan creativity since Breath of the Wild's showing at E3, with many talented fans sharing such projects as musicraps, and live-action shorts. Adding to collection of great fan works, artist BabaKinkin recently released a great BotW speed painting video onto YouTube. With a gorgeous portrayal of the Great Plateau at sunset, this painting effectively captures the overwhelming beauty to be found in the upcoming Zelda game...

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Breath of the Wild for obvious reasons, but one aspect we haven't really brought up are enemies. Assuredly Breath of the Wild will feature many new enemies (and already has), but it will also feature enemies we have seen before. Chuchus and Bokoblins are already counted among the enemies to return, but what else do you want to see make a comeback or appearance? Three are many options given the wide variance in enemy types over the years...

To the imaginative mind, or the obsessed Zelda fan, any household item can become a tribute to the kingdom of Hyrule. That includes light switch covers and outlet covers. I'm not joking. Etsy shop TheWheelmansWorkshop specializes in making customized light switch and outlet covers that you can buy to replace the boring, plain ones in your home. This particular one is a matching set of one outlet cover and one light switch cover featuring the Hylian Sheild on a black background...
