There are many fan projects all over the internet, but one we fully believe in is Royal Guards, a comedy/adventure fan web series based on the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time. At least... for season one. We had a chance to sit down with the people behind this webseries to discuss how it came to be, and what the future holds. Of course, this series is still under crowd funding with just a week left, so if you're convinced by the end of this interview... why not support it...

There is no video game music I enjoy more than The Legend of Zelda's. It's great to see fans go above and beyond to put their own twists on these beloved songs. Tom Winter is no newbie when it comes to acoustically arranging Zelda tunes. He's previously recreated Zelda songs such as: Gerudo ValleyClock Town, and Kokiri Forest, just to name a few! In his latest video he's taken the short but sweet Great Fairy Fountain theme and soothed my head with soft guitar sweeps and harmonies...

Link's Awakening takes on The Minish Cap for our final spot in the semifinals of the Best Zelda Game tournament. In our last matchup, Twilight Princess defeated Skyward Sword to move on to a semifinal matchup against The Wind Waker. This has indeed been a fairly surprising tournament - from Majora's Mask and Ocarina of Time both losing in round 1 to Zelda II getting more votes than expected against A Link to the Past. What will today's poll bear out? You decide!

While the Netflix Zelda TV series may not be a real thing (we honestly just don't know, Nintendo likes to talk circles around things), that doesn't mean a trailer couldn't possible exist right? Right. Okay, so this is a totally fake trailer, but it's pretty funny and comes from the fine folks over at Smosh. They are known for their parody videos and they have covered Zelda before in some other hilarious forms. This time they take on the Netflix rumor and run it with a trailer long joke of incest. I know, that sounds terrible, but it...

It may have seemed like a slow week for us all, but the Zelda Informer weekly Photoshop Contest is the party that never stops. This week, we'll put on our science hats and theorize about the evolutionary patterns of a certain winged race. But before that assignment begins, we'll look back at last week's contest: Let's Make Zelda Fabulous...

Last year we introduced you to an Ocarina of Time 2D project which was met with a lot of excitement but also some understandable skepticism. After all, it wasn't the first attempt at recreating the game in 2D and all prior attempts have fallen apart. So far however, this project is bucking that trending and has shown continuing monthly updates ever since. They released a new version of the game since we last posted about it, but more importantly they have a 3rd version on it's way featuring multiplayer capabilities...

The Wind Waker has some of the most aesthetically interesting items and weapons in the entire Zelda series. This fact did not go unnoticed by artist Soren Kalla, who lovingly crafted both the Hero's Shield and Mirror Shield as they appeared in the GameCube classic. The detail and craftsmanship on these shields are simply amazing, and Kalla was kind enough to include step-by-step images on the artist's Imgur page...

As a cosplayer, I know the amount of time and work that goes into the craft, and everyone in this video aims to impress. I'll let the video speak for itself because there really isn't much to say. People are dressed like Zelda characters. The popularity of cosplay has increased drastically over the years to the point that people are now making a living off of it. While few reach that level, many do it for the sake of either pretending to be one of their favorite anime or video game characters or experiencing...

Last year, Tom Banner Studios' Medieval combat game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was made a whole lot more interesting with the release of a fan-made Zelda mod called The Legend of Chivalry. The mod places players in a first-person, Zelda-esque dungeon complete with puzzles, secrets, and bosses. A few days ago, Hutts Gaming Channel on YouTube stepped into The Legend of Chivalry and explored the labyrinth for himself...

Koala Art & Design have released two brand new Zelda inspired dresses. Both feature several Zelda items in two unique styles. One of them features the Trifroce as the center piece, while the other is just a total item mashup. Both dresses look absolutely fantastic! While there are many options for various TShirts around the web, Zelda dresses are much more limited in variety and availability. 

The dresses are made out of thick 86% polyester, 14% spandex fabric. This fabric supposedly allows just enough weight...
