For those of you that don't yet have the full array of Super Smash Bros. amiibo, several have gone on sale on Amazon. Six different amiibo, including Toon Link and Zelda, have dropped in price from $12.99 to just $9.74. Unfortunately, once you tack on the cost of shipping, the price comes out to about the same as if you were to buy them in store. However, if you...

In the first editorial I had written on the subject, I talked about how Zelda U not being at E3 is a strange move on Nintendo's part. Something else Zelda must be replacing it. Why else would they go ahead and cancel their star header for E3...

By now, most Zelda fans who care know that Zelda U will most likely not be recieving a 2015 release date. Some fans were blown away and depressed, and some, like me, were still saddened but for the most part accepted this. Aonuma specifically explained the reason for the delay was because of new possibilities of improvement for Zelda U.

What saddens us all is the announcement on Miiverse that Zelda U will not be shown at E3; no demo, no trailer, nothing...

It is time, once again, for Zelda Informer's weekly Photoshop contest!

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé celebrated his 54th birthday this week, so he no doubt went on some amazing adventures in celebration. We may never know exactly what he did for his big day, but we can guess using the magic of Photoshop. And while we get our bodies ready for this week's challenge, we'll look at last week's contest: Zelda: The Mobile Game.

The composer brothers are perhaps the most famous siblings in the Zelda series. And though they appear in two games, it is within Majora's Mask that their relationship is truly at its darkest...


“In the land of Hyrule, there are many legends. However, none of them... are about these guys.” So says J. Derek Howard who is the writer and the director of an all new Zelda web series that is avidly looking for funding. 

The series, unlike most, does not focus on our hero clad in green but instead on the guards and the everyday people you don’t see much of in the series. The Comedy/Adventure is based on the Ocarina of Time to start with and each season will explore a new game and different versions of our main cast...

With all the magical items within Link's inventory, one would not necessarily consider rods to be a stand-out choice for the green-clad hero. Who needs a rod when you have Master Sword and some magic boots, right? Well as it turns out, rods have actually remained frequently utilized tools in the hero's quest and have proven to be some of the most important items in the series. While there may be a wand or two, rods have actually popped up more often than many other magical implements in the Zelda series, always providing our hero with unique and amazing powers. With rods proving to be such an integral and significant class of item, we've decided to examine the most powerful, fanciful, and overall magical rods in the Zelda series...

Since the very first game, rupees have served as Link's currency of choice. Our hero makes a living out of cutting through shrubbery, the spoils of which he uses to purchase potions or other such items from shops. Scattered across Hyrule are treasure chests full of rupees, and a larger wallet seems to always be waiting for Link to find. It goes without saying that rupees are an iconic part of the Zelda series, but iconic does not always necessarily mean important or useful...

Link is known as a quiet and courageous hero. He is the picture of health; fit, athletic, and a solid mind. We know quite a bit about our favorite tunic-clad hero. This series' intent is to break down the major elements and explore them with an in-depth look. Ready? Let's jump in...

If you ever wanted to know exactly how much The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword holds your hand, you’ve come to the right place. You will find no exaggerated opinions based on hazy recollections here. This is an objective analysis of handholding in Skyward Sword, and I now have full faith in the data collected from this game after auditing the game once more with a second playthrough.

For those new to Hey, Look, Listen, this is a series of articles that seeks to objectively analyze how much a collection of Zelda games—namely Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword—hold the player's hand during gameplay. Think of this is a look at backseat driving in video games, focusing on titles in the Zelda franchise...
