This Zelda Versus Best Zelda Game Tournament continues, as today we have a rather intriguing matchup of similar games with very different strengths. Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages are indeed two very independent Zelda games. If you never buy the other, you would still have a complete experience. If you own both, they focus on very different aspects of Zelda, satisfying multiple crowds of fans at the same time. Plus there is a bonus combined ending, making for a truly unique experience. Today we finally get to know the truth: Which game does our fan base prefer? In our last ZVS poll, The Minish Cap defeated Phantom Hourglass rather handily - but today I feel like we're going to have a tight match-up going right down to the wire.

As some may have noticed, a few of us writers have been celebrating Zelda Informer's unofficial Week of Hate. For the last few days, we have been constructively and tastefully criticizing the charactersdungeons, and out-of-game aspects of the Zelda series that fuel our pure, unbridled hate. Today, we want to discuss the game series as a whole and express how much seething hatred we have for certain trends that make up the Zelda formula. We want to know which aspects, gameplay traits, or Zelda traditions are the ones that (no matter how hard we bemoan their existence) will just not go away...

The video game music DJ known as DJ Cutman just released a new album titled "DJ Cutman Volume III," and included in the music is a Link's Awakening track... 

We at Zelda Informer commonly focus on out-of-game topics, including interviews with Eiji Aonuma and Miyamoto, announcements on upcoming Zelda titles, and various other things. In this Daily Debate, we want to know something that you hate about the Zelda franchise with one little twist. It has to be out-of-game.

For an out-of-game example, we could look at how Nintendo has handled the limited edition Majora's Mask New Nintendo 3DS XL system, and frown...

About a month ago, rumor spread of a Netflix original in the works based on The Legend of Zelda series. The Internet exploded with fan remarks on how this would either ruin the series or bring it to a new form of media in a fun way. The reaction was so strong that a petition to kill the show was created, even before it was officially announced. It is important to note that at this time, it is still just a rumor. However, one person who remained positive about it was popular YouTube Zelda fan, Katie Wilson. I recently had the privilege to speak with Katie...

Hello fellow lovers of Zelda music and welcome back to our (slightly belated) Wednesday feature: The Weekly Music Spotlight! We've been MIA for a couple weeks since our collaboration with some of our featured artists, but we're back to expose you to yet another artist who's work catapults them above the rest. This time around, we're dealing with one who delves into the realm of music orchestration in order to create his masterpieces. His past credits include the incredible Harmony of Heroes album of Super Smash Bros. music, for which...

Ever since the original Zelda title for the NES, beating the boss at the end of a dungeon has been one of the most challenging tasks in a video game ever. There is always one boss that sticks out, one boss that infuriates you almost to your breaking point. You tried again and again, but over and over you get brutally bashed and beaten. The question is simple: what is your most hated boss in...

Our Best Zelda Game Zelda Versus Tournament moves on to the next matchup, as Link's Awakening joins Spirit Tracks in round 2. Today's matchup features the best selling handheld Zelda game of all time in Phantom Hourglass against The Minish Cap, the last handheld Zelda title crafted by Capcom. This matchup could be rather intense if our fan bases reaction to each game over the years is any indication. The Minish Cap seems to be considered a darling, while Phantom Hourglass seems to get little love (just among our fans). Still, every year is a new year, and we have more fans now than ever before, meaning how these polls swing could be unpredictable...

The Zelda games inspire some amazing creations from fans of the series, from drawings, to paintings, to music, and more. In the case of these two guitarists, the Zelda games inspired them to arrange and perform their own version of Saria's Song... 

There have been a lot of really cool and unique Zelda art projects lately. In just the past week, we've seen such masterpieces as a Majora's Mask made with a chainsaw and a Zelda-inspired customized Gamecube. To add to all the awesome art floating around, Reddit user gmhafker has recently shown off his stunning Zelda laser cutting project. The piece is both beautiful and highly-detailed, well worth a look by any fan...
