It's that time again! A new Friday means a new Zelda Informer Photoshop Contest. This week, we're focusing on the Zelda series' beloved Postman character and exploring the life he led after Majora's Mask concluded. Don't get ahead of yourself, though. We first need to take a look at the winners from last week's contest: Zelda Theme Park Attraction...

As it would turn out, Majora's Mask 3D is not alone in world record speedrunning news this week. Not too long after two MM3D records were set in a single day, speedrunner FullGrownGaming set a new Any% world record in the original Majora's Mask. Besting the previous record by six seconds, this run saw Majora defeated in 1 hour, 27 minutes, and 3 seconds...

The music of the Zelda series is no stranger to covers of all kinds, be they instrumental or acapella, acoustic or hard rock or improvised instruments. One beloved theme is "Dragon Roost Island" from Wind Waker. It's seen plenty of covers, but probably not one quite like this...

Welcome, fan art fans! Last week, Rod was your host, as I couldn't be here, but now I'm back and ready to show you a new batch of fan art. First, let's congratulate last week's winner, Legend of Zelda by Milee-Design. This piece of artwork boasts a truly unique and polished art style that anyone is sure to appreciate...

Recently I found a cover of my favorite song in the Zelda franchise, uploaded by YouTuber ed mz and it is possibly one of the best solo covers I have ever heard for the iconic Lost Woods theme. Just what makes this cover so great? It's the toe-tapping beat in the background combined with the creative styling of the violin to create something fresh and new...

Do you remember a time when some felt Hyrule Historia put a halt to Zelda theories? Yeah, I don't either, as fans continue to theorize about all new aspects of the series. This time around, YouTuber Commonwealth realm combines with Anonymous Gamer and M. Productions to talk about what they are calling the "Zora Timeline". Zora have, in theory, been around since the very first game in the timeline as they go on and explain their connections throughout the game, evolution, and several mini theories to form the Zora Timeline...

This week we've got a stunning Cosplay of the ever so elegant Princess Hilda of A Link Between Worlds. We've also added a YouTube video by the model, showcasing the costume for you to see. Something a little bit different to our usual Cosplay of the Week features. The Dark Princess of Lorule is rather enchanting...

ChuChus are the common gel-like enemies seen in many Zelda games. Their somewhat annoying chatter and adorable design have certainly carried these creatures from game to game, and they have become an iconic piece of the series. If you ever wished to own a ChuChu for yourself, you're now in luck. You can now buy handmade resin ChuChus from LegendaryTreasures on Etsy for $10 USD...

One constant since the release of The Wind Waker in 2003 is that we'll never know game to game what art style direction will be used in the Zelda series. That isn't exclusive to console games either, handheld games often feature different art styles game to game as well, even if they are still somewhat based on the sprite level (outside of 2.5D games). Up through the release of Majora's Mask in 2000, it can be argued that in general, Zelda games all conformed to a very familiar style. Ocarina of Time felt like a natural 3D extension of A Link to the Past, which felt like a...

After only a few months since release, Majora's Mask 3D is already being smashed by speedrunners. For the last month or so, the goal of MM3D speedrunners was to finish the game in less than an hour and 50 minutes. This week marks the completion of this goal, as well as new world records from two different runners. Today saw runner gymnast86 break the record with a time of 1 hour and 47 minutes; shortly after, runner iwabi broke that record with a time of 1 hour, 46 minutes, and 9 seconds...
