The Garfield comics, along with the various television series that came later, were one of my childhood favorites alongside the Legend of Zelda. As odd of a combination as this might be, it's not all that strange to Garfield creator, Jim Davis, who spoke of his love for the Zelda series in a recent interview with Venturebeat...

This week, Adam gives his own theories on the hero’s spirit, the gang discusses the idea of the tragedies in between games, and they also discuss the untapped relationships that Link and his female friends have. We start off with some spider talk, and other general nonsense but find out way to a serious conversation towards the end. We also discuss the cultural impacts that are noticeable in each of the installments in the franchise...

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...

This week we talk about MicroTransactions, Translation issues in The Adventure of Link, and the merits of going to conventions (We need a ZeldaCon, darn it!). Later on we discuss some cool cosplays we’ve seen lately, and Al talks about his experience playing A Link To The Past for the first time! This week’s podcast includes…

With Zelda U’s delay still sinking in, Adam leads this week’s spicier than usual cast down a road of fan fiction and debate. We discuss the possible reasons behind Zelda U’s extended dev cycle, possible ideas for Zelda’s 30th anniversary, angrily debate about Smash Bros Ballot characters, and consider the possibility of…

Hey folks, this is Reggie Fils-Aime from Nintendo of America.

Since Mr. Iwata started up Iwata Asks some years ago I’ve been brainstorming on how we could better present a similar version of that which is more catered to the United States audience. This was honesty a tough task and it is the primary reason we didn’t have anything like this occur last year – not from us or Mr. Iwata.

While we did have one Iwata Asks this year for Majora’s Mask 3D, I felt like we haven’t been highlighting our North American team enough. Names like Eiji Aonuma, Koji Kondo, and Shigeru Miyamoto are household names – but we feel others here in North America deserve some recognition for their efforts. Today we start our first foray into this with Reggie Asks – where I, Mr. Fils-Aime, will be interviewing various executives and North American developers that create Nintendo content.

Remember that awesome live-action Zelda fan film teaser we showed you a while back? If you liked that, we have a special treat for you! The following is an interview with the creators of that teaser, Player Piano and The Zelda Project. The interview contains some inside info, future plans, et cetera...

This week's episode of the ZI Podcast welcomes UFC Featherweight champion Cole Miller to talk about his love for Zelda and all things Nintendo. We geek out about a recent rendition of the Hylian shield, present some of our own fan theories about Ocarina of Time, and debate whether or not Epona is really a companion. Your cast for this week is...

Satoru Iwata has finally commented on the Netflix Zelda TV Series rumors. While he has nothing to announce at this time, suggesting they are indeed planning some sort of TV Show for something at Nintendo, he did want to point out that the initial news about the Zelda Netflix TV Show was based on incorrect information. However, the way it is stated suggests that the TV Show may very much be a reality, just not in the way described. It is possible that what was reported was one of merely several different ideas pitched to Nintendo. We have no way of knowing...


Our weekly podcast keeps chugging along, with special guest PaperBoxHouse. We sit down to talk about the recently released Mario Party 10, the new trailer for the movie Pixels, and the recent string of interviews with top Nintendo executives. Your host as always for this week is Adam (who can’t pronounce anything properly), and your cast of lovable adventurers includes: Jake (wants a Gold Mario Amiibo), Caleb (triggered as usual), and special guest for this week Alfred/PaperBoxHouse (he’s still holding out for Super Mario Galaxy 3). Tune in to hear our weekly news roundup, as well as Adam’s secret Kingdom Hearts/Metal Gear Solid fan fiction...
