Pull out your Link costume everyone, because today is Halloween! Whatever you're doing this evening, if it's Zelda-related or not, we here at Zelda Informer wish all of you a lovely evening/night. 

My girlfriend and I got into the Halloween spirit by doing some good ol' fashioned pumpkin carving, although I stuck with Zelda Informer! To see us in action, watch the full video...

Today we have a little something special for our fans with our first exclusive guitar duet on our YouTube channel, featuring the talents from 72 Hours Remaining. You may remember them as the duo that did the Romance in the Air song, as they continue their Skyward Sword love by offering up ZI an exclusive. We've developed a working relationship with this now growing YouTube talent (they're over 500 subs strong since we brought them to you all). We're glad you enjoy their stuff...

Good morning and welcome back friends, fans, and cyber interlopers (you know who you are) to our (late) Tuesday Weekly Feature: the Photoshop Contest! For those who are new to this feature, fear not; this is a very straightforward contest. Simply photoshop or otherwise alter the image, screenshot, or whatever it is we give you for the week and turn it into something hilarious, cool, or anything in between! Once you're fully satisfied with your creation, post it (make sure you're logged in!) in the comments section at the end of this post.

We all get inspired by great things: The Legend of Zelda comes to mind, for example. . Many have done wonders with that influence, writing fanfiction, creating beautiful works of art, or even naming their own children in honor of its source (Looking at you, Zelda Williams). One such imaginative individual is indie author J Washburn (yes, his name is not an abbreviation, but is really J), who is asking for $1000 in pledges for his new Kickstarter project. The campaign is for a fantasy novel with a tale that isn't a far cry from the series we love. The synopsis gives pretty good...

The only thing we know for certain in the Zelda world when it comes to the next full game in the series is that it will be coming to the Wii U. Beyond this fact, everything could be questioned, from what we initially saw at E3 this year to the intended release period. It could be delayed (though unlikely), the art style or world could see major changes from what we saw at E3. So how can it take advantage of the Wii U hardware?

We saw how The Wind Waker HD...

One of Ocarina of Time's revolutionary aspects was its expansive world, going beyond any size we had seen in a game before. Most older Zelda fans will remember the first time they set eyes on the massive Hyrule Field forming the junction between all later areas. 

Now, imagine witnessing this massive plain in our current world. This is exactly what Japanese youtube and craftsman Kennosukee has achieved, although in miniature form. The fellow Zelda...

By now we all know the official timeline. If you don't own Hyrule Historia yet (and why wouldn't you in some form? It's fairly inexpensive and the art alone makes it worth it) you have likely seen a scanned image of the timeline page, where everything is outlined. If you haven't... we'll include one further down in today's debate. Still, for one reason or another many fans have often taken issue with the Official Timeline. It is "canon law" as they say, but it doesn't mean that fans have to agree that it got it all correct. In fact, I know many fans argue the downfall timeline...

Dorkly recently put together a list of 'The 27 Most Badass Pieces of Zelda Fanart Ever Produced', which, as the title suggests, shows us some of the greatest art pieces for the Zelda series that we've ever seen.

It's actually incredibly awesome; a lot of these are really beautiful, and you can tell tons of work went into each and every one...

It goes without saying that the Zelda series has a lot going for it. No matter what genre of game you like to play, there is something about this series that really draws people in. Each game has you going on an adventure to test your bravery, intelligence, and strength. See what I did there? They drop players into a fantastical world full of mystery and darkness, pushing you forth as the hero of light. The series even has a timeline dedicated to your character's death. The history of the Zelda series is massive and continues to grow. The question is, what does it need to "grow"?...

In Week 12 of our contest, we asked fans to caption an image of Zelda giving Groose her "authoritative finger". We got some great responses from you which are presented below. This week, we are featuring an image that was submitted to us by DizzyDeuce. Link and Tetra look upward, mouth agape, at...well, I guess that's for you to decide. Leave your posts in the comments below. If you post and don't see it immediately, wait about five minutes and refresh the page before submitting again. Again, we are selecting the captions that were most liked by other fans, with the exception of one that may come across as "controversial". And the winners are...
