Happy Easter, Zelda Informer readers! Today's usually all about egg hunts, but we'll be discussing the next closest thing: rabbit hunting...

It seems today is the day for announcements about Zelda-themed 3DS accessories! We've seen a sweet 3DS XL Triforce pouch, some awesome-looking New Nintendo 3DS XL clip armor, and now a Hylian Shield pouch capable of holding any DS unit.

I would describe it to you in my own words, but I don't think I can do much better than the official GameStop description...

Minecraft seems to be getting the Zelda treatment these days! Recently we've seen the entire world and programming of The Legend of Zelda recreated in Minecraft, and also a tutorial on how to play the Lost Woods Theme using note blocks. Today, we would like to show you a brand new Minecraft parody brought to you by MinuteMinecraftParodies, who does, well... minute Minecraft parodies!

Done in a comical style, MinuteMinecraftParodies has created an animated short...

For those unaware, the official timeline that was released in 2011 had The Wind Waker on the adult timeline and Majora's Mask on the child timeline. This is an important distinction today, because Game Trailers did some digging and discovered that The Wind Waker has several connections to Majora's Mask and some of them are not just necessarily mere easter eggs. Be sure to watch the entire video feature to get a real grasp. There are things such as two in-game text references to events that transpired in Majora's Mask and evidence suggesting that Ganondorf's...

One of the key components to the The Legend of Zelda series is most certainly the music. It creates memorable moments which fans will cherish for years to come, but also empowers battles or segments filled with suspense. Therefore when the opportunity arises to listen to this music performed live by a large orchestra, it can act as a dream come true for many fans...


The time has come for yet another test of wit, creativity, and the use of expensive software for trivial purposes: a Photoshop Contest is upon us!

The gist of this contest is, we're asking readers to submit the funniest, zaniest, most creative, or most awe-inspiring pictures they can produce with image alteration software, and submit them as a comment below this article. But before we discuss this week's contest, let's honor the winners from last week's contest: Grandma's Adventure!

Nintendo Minute hosts Kit and Krista had the chance to interview the prolific composer of video-game music, Koji Kondo, whose list of works include several iterations from the Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda series. Kit and Krista’s subject for the interview was Kondo’s “compositional process.” Borrowed from scholarly discussions about music, the term refers to the methods and/or steps by which composers write a piece of music from conception to the finished product. In other words, it addresses the question: How do composers compose? As may be imagined...

Koji Kondo has been around for a long time at Nintendo, so he's composed hundreds if not thousands of different songs for various games - either as the lead sound director or simply as someone who is part of a larger team. We've come to know and love many of his works over the years, with much of them being instantly recognizable when we hear them anywhere we go. Interestingly enough, The Legend of Zelda theme is among some of his favorite compositions he has ever created. Here's what he had to say when asked in a recent interview about his favorite music...

Which hand does Link favor? For the longest time, Nintendo portrayed Link as a left-handed hero. This representation held steady from the first game way back in 1986 all the way to the 2006 release of Twilight Princess. While Link is right-handed in the Wii version of Twilight Princess, but it isport of the GameCube version of the same game, where the entire game world (including Link's favored hand) is inverted from left to right. Official art for Twilight Princess also shows Link as a left-handed hero, so the Wii version bends but does not break the trend of left-handed Links.

However...
