To say this current generation has been underwhelming for Nintendo would be an understatement. First, they overpriced the 3DS comparative to market value and then failed to offer enough compelling content at launch to have consistent sales success. After correcting both issues eight or so months later, they repeated those same issues again with the Wii U, though it was far more than price and the lack of killer software at launch that lead to that failure. The 3DS was able to recover and reach respectable numbers thanks...

We've featured the YouTube show Boundary Break a few times on the site. It's a series that goes through various games and takes the camera places you normally couldn't go in a standard playthrough. For instance, at 3:20 we reveal that the select screen from Ocarina of Time is a large room with the background being a rotating box—a little surprising if you ask me. Another interesting moment (which we also narrated for) is at 9:53 when we take a look at one of the beta rooms...

Masks were introduced in Ocarina of Time, and heavily featured in Majora's Mask. Since then, no Zelda game has used masks the same way. This begs the question—should masks make a return in future Zelda games? Perhaps Breath of the Wild will use them in some way.

First of all, which masks should return? I'm not talking about specific masks, I'm talking about the type...

Grab a bite to eat and sit down for this recent installment of Glitch Picnic from YouTuber MikeyTaylorGaming. Mikey takes his viewers on "picnics" through various video games showing off some well known or even unknown glitches. Today, he is taking us on a picnic through A Link to the Past, showing us how to perform the exploration glitch.

We at Zelda Informer feature a lot of fan projects and merchandise, from covers of songs to pint glasses. Today I'd like to bring to your attention a fancy Zelda-themed bowtie with Triforces strewn across it, which you can order right here. For $25 USD, anyone in the world can get their hands on this to spruce up their formal wear with some good old-fashioned geekery...

TIME magazine recently put out a list of what they call the "50 best video games of all time" on their website. It appears their criteria for judging which games should appear on the list is how influential they are/were in the gaming industry, and Zelda certainly fits that criteria. The Legend of Zelda for NES and Ocarina of Time are on the list, with both sitting in the top 10. You can check out the top 10 list...

When first playing Ocarina of Time as a kid, the first dungeon that really tested my patience was the Forest Temple. It was not only the first Adult Link dungeon, but was also the area that truly tested your skills with the game considering the first three dungeons were essentially a cake walk. The real challenge of the temple wasn't even Phantom Ganon, but surviving the puzzles the temple threw at you. While not the most widely regarded dungeon in the Zelda series, AlbertREWesker has decided to bring the Forest Temple back to life...

This week on the ZI Podcast we dive deep into all of your burning topic suggestions. We had a huge swath of topic ideas from all over our fan base and we wanted to make sure we covered as many of them as we could. However, one particular topic about dungeons in Breath of the Wild ended up spinning off into one of the most interesting discussions we've ever had on the podcast about that game... how story will be presented in a world through a method few if any games have ever even attempted to do before...

September is supposedly the month of NX, as Nintendo should reveal the console answering the burning questions we have about it. Then, we wait another 6 months until NX's scheduled launch in March. While we still wait for its actual reveal, there has been a lot of debate going around the Internet recently about just how the company should be showing it off for the first time. I thought it would make a great topic for a Daily Debate, so let's have at it.

Some would prefer Nintendo to use their Nintendo Direct livestream format as a tool to reveal the NX...

Nintendo is still continuing its social media campaign for Breath of the Wild, and is posting videos of similar length regarding various aspects of the game. So far we've seen videos for the rune abilities, magnesis, the Woodcutter's house and axe, and the Koroks. Today, the company released a brand new clip regarding different weapons, with Link masterfully using them against some unfortunate foes.

I am very impressed with Link's fancy footwork in the video...
