Rusty Cages Covers, a YouTube channel dedicated to covering various music in different styles, has performed a ukulele melodica cover of the classic overworld theme. Rusty uses more than just those two instruments however. A piano, guitar, a shaker and a tambourine are all used to achieve the sound desired by the cover artist. The final product sounds quite like the original piece, first heard in The Legend of Zelda...

CryZENx has recreated another place from Ocarina of Time in Unreal Engine 4, the Lost Woods. At the opening of the setting, trees that have grown overhead have leaves that glisten in the sunlight and provide a depth of mystery to the setting. Saria's Song echos faintly in the background, and Navi now says "Hey, Listen!" when she is summoned from Link's hat. The detail of the Lost Woods is lush and green, providing a stunning immersion effect for the audience. The realistic sunlight also adds to this while also adding to the contrast...

The cover art for the first volume of the Twilight Princess manga has been revealed, thanks to a tweet from Akira Himekawa, the creator of the Zelda manga series. Prior Zelda manga titles by them include Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, and Four Swords to name a few. According to the tweet the manga will be released in Japan on June 24, 2016. This manga will also have multiple volumes, like all of the prior manga in the series...

Nintendo has gone ahead and added some additional information to their E3 Website. While the updates are easy to miss at first glance, especially if you had previously visited the site, upon closer inspection you can see a few finite details that were not previously mentioned (though, you could argue some of this was a natural assumption). As expected, Nintendo will be transforming their booth in a manner that immerses folks into the world of The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. It should feel like you're walking into Hyrule...

The second episode of ZI Update has arrived, a series where I let you in on the ground floor of future and current on-goings at the site and then answer any and all questions you have in regards to Zelda Informer. This week we had two forum specific questions that I address to the best of my knowledge. In addition to that I talk about when our new podcast is going out (you can check out our final episode of our current podcast here), a sneak peak at a future editorial, and some plans for E3...

One of the most memorable moments from The Wind Wakersaw Link exploring the long-submerged Hyrule Castle, taking in the mysteries of Hyrule's history through a collection of stained glass windows. A few years ago, graphic company Blik gave fans the chance add such stained glass designs to their own home decorating by releasing a series of officially licensed wall stickers inspired by The Wind Waker. Recently, Nintendo UK announced that these wall stickers are now available for purchase on its online store. Zelda fans in the UK now have a chance to buy these stickers for £26.99, hopefully avoiding hefty international shipping costs...

This week for 3DS sales in the eShop displays a lot of Pokemon within its list. The top seller for the week was Pokemon Yellow. The Zelda series had a couple of titles that happened to be within the top 10 and top 20 within the list, as well...

This is a bittersweet episode — as of right now, this is the last episode hosted by Adam and the gang. As accurately described in the title, this is truly the end of an era. For many, many episodes, we've heard the familiar voices of Adam, Chris, Colin, Jake, and Caleb talk about  Zelda, Nintendo, gaming in general, and joking around with special guests. I personally would like to thank the crew for their dedication towards the podcast, and wish them well on their future endeavors.

The main attraction Nintendo's going to be all about at E3 this year is Zelda U. It's only a matter of a few weeks now before we gaze upon everything the next title in the Zelda series has to offer. There now comes word that the folks over at the Big N are giving a select number of fans a chance to play this title before it's officially released next March...

Some mornings I wake up and get really excited by the very first email I see in my inbox. Did I finally get an answer to a long awaited bug report? Has Nintendo gotten back to me about my E3 requests? Both of these are exciting emails to read. Other exciting ones deal with breaking news I find out about first through my email that I checked on my phone, before rushing to my computer to find out more. Today is one of those days, except I first heard about it from the 15 notifications on my phone from Skype and Discord. Everyone asking...
