Custom, modified consoles can range from weird to spectacular, and amongst all the wild creations you're bound to find a gem like this Zelda-themed N64 crafted by SpaceNTraders over at Etsy. Painted with a slick gold and silver color scheme, the custom console sports a solid...

We don't talk about Smash Bros. around these parts very often, though that may be changing as we get our official Zelda Informer Smash Tournament off the ground (more on that later). Still, it's hard to ignore the absolutely hilarious video created by SoKrispyMedia. The concept is simple enough - take Super Smash Bros. and make it first person through a virtual reality headset. The main person in the video puts on the headset and becomes Mario battling against a real life (well, virtual reality real) version of Link...

We know Zelda U is going to be open world and feature horseback travel, but should that be the only way we travel such a vast land? Setting aside warp points, something the series features prominently, we're focusing strictly on modes of transportation versus instant transportation. So, Epona, Loftwings, Trains, etc. I personally would love to see all the various methods used up to this point in the same game. So traveling by air, sea, ground, and even faster ground (trains)...

YouTuber versus put together a new parody song and video of the popular Starships song by Nicki Minaj. They based this parody on The Wind Waker, telling Link's tale in a pretty funny and unique way. As a warning, there is some suggestive material in the song and some cussing, but considering the song it is a parody of.. that shouldn't surprise anyone. Still, it's a pretty clever and overall funny take on a popular song from a few years back dealing with our favorite hero clad in green...

Did You Know Gaming? is a fairly popular group of people that cover interesting and often unheard of facts for various video games. They sometimes release these facts individually through an image, or they cover as many as they can dig up for a game in video form. The latter form is what they released today for Majora's Mask, the game that recently got remade into Majora's Mask 3D. (Are you stuck? Check out our 100% Majora's Mask 3D Walkthrough!)...

HMK sits with us for the first half of this week's episode, and before we leave, he tells about his favorite...

Zelda U, the anticipated next console installment in the Zelda series, was first shown off during E3 2014. We wouldn't see the game again until The Game Awards in December 2014, where we saw more of Zelda U in action. Needless to say, we were all excited for the game to release in 2015. However earlier this year, Eiji Aonuma unexpectedly announced the delay of Zelda U to 2016, and we've seen few details of the game since then. With concerns that Zelda U may even miss its 2016 release, it's time discuss the way Nintendo announced this new title. Was Nintendo wrong or right to announce Zelda U so early...?

In a recent video uploaded to IGN's YouTube channel, various members of the IGN staff discuss why they love The Legend of Zelda for the NES, and why they believe it was so successful.

One of the first topics of discussion was the marketing choices Nintendo of America made at the time. One choice in particular was the gold cartridge that The Legend of Zelda was commonly sold on...

Rozen, known for his work on the Harmony of Heroes album, has released a new album featuring 5 amazing tracks from Twilight Princess, completely done in his own style. Having listened to them myself, I can safely say they are beyond epic. Here is what he has to say about the album itself...

It seems that a popular trend today is recreating various video game characters and worlds in Unreal Engine 4, likely as a testing out of the extremely open platform. Long before many of the things we are seeing today occurred, South Cloth Town was recreated in it. Back in December 2014, YouTuber Wesley Paquette uploaded a video of his amazing work on Clock Town. The video, as seen above, somehow flew under our radar, but we're not about...
