There are without a doubt some great side-quests in the Zelda series. One that immediately comes to mind is the Anju and Kafei quest, which is probably one of the most memorable missions of Majora's Mask. However, when I was playing through the game originally, I didn't complete it. Why, you ask? I was too busy trying to get through the main game to find other quests.

The question I'm posing here is simply this: Is side content that important in Zelda games?...

There's nothing like a good throwback to a very awesome game to remind you how great a video gaming franchise is. This is exactly what this video is is—a metal cover made by a YouTuber who goes by the name Celestial Fury that sends you back to the epic N64 adventure. This metal cover of the Prelude of Light from Ocarina of Time is just what every Zelda fan needs. It also includes Zelda's Lullaby, which fits very nicely with the key...

Legend of Kusakari is a Japanese adventure puzzle game about grass-cutting currently in development for the Nintendo 3DS, and is being made by a team called Nnooo. The company was interviewed recently, and talked about it's inspirations from The Legend of Zelda. They also mentioned they suspect Nintendo feels "favorable" regarding its Zelda inspirations, which is definitely a good thing. Check out the full quote...

As a big fan of Zelda, I have multiple Link figures in my house. I'm always on the look out for more merch, especially items on the affordable side. When I found out Medicom will be releasing three new Link figures from three different Zelda games with each running around $10 USD, I got pretty excited. Let's jump into the details.

The figures come from Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, and A Link Between Worlds. All three of the Links stand...

Hello, everyone! As you may know, the week hasn't truly begun until we kick off our weekly Caption Contest. We only have a two more weeks of Toon Link Month, our five-week celebration of the Zelda series' cartoony protagonist. We've seen our cutesy friend take center-stage for the past few contests, but it seems normal Link wants a bit of the spotlight too. Classic Link confronts Spirit Tracks Link in this week's bout...

Rune abilities are a brand new concept in Breath of the Wild that are gathered from various shrines and applied to Link through the Sheikah Slate. To date, we know about four of these abilities, all of which are attainable on the Great Plateau (the starting area of the game). Nintendo of Europe provided us a clip showing off those abilities in the order of Cryonis, Magnesis, Bombs, and Stasis. These abilities allow fun and creative ways to solve puzzles and traverse the world...

CryZENx uploaded two videos onto YouTube that changed the point of view in Ocarina of Time. In the first video, he shows off child Link in the Desert Colossus in a first person perspective. Because the viewer is seeing the world as Link, the environment takes on a vaster, more dangerous feel. The perspective could also be used to convey how Ocarina of Time would look or handle if it was a virtual reality game...

For years, speedrunners of The Wind Waker have searched endlessly for a glitch known as the "Barrier Skip," a way to bypass an energy barrier blocking Link's path from Hyrule Castle to Ganon's Tower during the hero's first visit to the submerged kingdom. The Barrier Skip always seemed like an impossible goal, that is, until just recently. Last week, Zelda speedrunner LinkOscuro finally managed to achieve the skip in The Wind Waker HD, capturing the occasion on Twitch...

Most Majora's Mask fans are pretty thrilled that Majora's Mask 3D is even a thing. That being said, there were a ton of fairly significant changes to the game that may or may not be welcomed. Looking back on the game I find little to dislike about the changes, but that's simply because most of them felt like either missing content (no ability to fish) or corrections on things that probably only existed the way they did due to the limited time under-which the game was created (just one year)...

Could The Great Deku Tree be returning in Breath of the Wild? YouTuber Zeltik believes so, specifically due to the Korok's direct connection to the other worldly forest spirit in The Wind Waker. It's a fairly plausible ideal, though I do question the logic behind the location of the tree, as he suspects and states an area under which we haven't yet seen and can't possibly know if it is indeed the most densely wooded area in the game. That being said, there is more to this than meets the eye...
