This week on the Zelda Informer Podcast, Alfred makes a triumphant return to his co-hosting duties as our resident comic artist, Trey, and super fan Mason make appearances to discuss some unexpected NX leaks. With the NX leaks taking up a majority of the first half of the podcast, I wanted to reminded everyone of a rather amazing (and sad) story a fan shared with us and allowed us to share with all of you about how Nintendo is keeping a lost brother with someone special while playing Breath of the Wild...

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Breath of the Wild for obvious reasons, but one aspect we haven't really brought up are enemies. Assuredly Breath of the Wild will feature many new enemies (and already has), but it will also feature enemies we have seen before. Chuchus and Bokoblins are already counted among the enemies to return, but what else do you want to see make a comeback or appearance? Three are many options given the wide variance in enemy types over the years...

To the imaginative mind, or the obsessed Zelda fan, any household item can become a tribute to the kingdom of Hyrule. That includes light switch covers and outlet covers. I'm not joking. Etsy shop TheWheelmansWorkshop specializes in making customized light switch and outlet covers that you can buy to replace the boring, plain ones in your home. This particular one is a matching set of one outlet cover and one light switch cover featuring the Hylian Sheild on a black background...

As I am sure most every Zelda fan can agree, Zelda has some great music. Ranging from the peaceful lullabies to the hardcore boss battles, there is beautiful music to be found everywhere. So far, what we have seen of Breath of the Wild has not been disappointing when it comes to the music.It is not an uncommon practice for people to make piano tutorials out of Zelda music, and Breath of the Wild is no exception. YouTube channel Marioverehrer has uploaded the epic Steppe Talus theme from the Breath of the Wild footage as a piano tutorial of its own using the program Synthesia, a popular choice for song tutorials. 

ZeldaMaster uploaded his next segment of “Zelda Lore” onto YouTube. The topic of this installment is focused on the mysterious tribe of the Sheikah. ZeldaMaster notes that this tribe in particular seems to be the focus of the upcoming Zelda title,Breath of the Wild. ZeldaMaster begins with the basics of the Sheikah tribe—their first appearance chronologically to the Zelda timeline, which is Impa from Skyward Sword...

YouTuber and Zelda fan Nathan Sharpe, also known as NateWantsToBattle, just released a video for his song called Hero of Our Time based on The Legend of Zelda. If you are unfamiliar with his work, he has released other Zelda songs like Ganon's Gone (a parody of Gone Gone Gone), Dawn of The First Day among other great songs. Hero of Our Time can be found on his album Songs of Time which is a tribute to Ocarina of Time which is now available on iTunes...

Zelda has been around for thirty years and to this day, I still find out things about the game I had no idea about. If you love trivia, or you are looking for some more obscure Zelda facts that you might have missed over the years, check out this video. From the YouTube channel It's Super Effective!, the host, Mike, tells us 27 facts fans might not know about different Zelda games...

Home console, hybrid device, portable machine, tablet with detachable controllers—these have all been used to describe Nintendo NX. While we probably won't know anything concrete regarding the console until this fall (besides the few confirmed games), the rumor mill has been churning out some credible reports. Eurogamer claims NX will be a portable hybrid console, and while the Wall Street Journal backs up this report, they also claim NX will play Nintendo mobile games...

When it usually comes to buying fan-made merchandise from the Zelda series, you can usually get it in two different places, the internet or at a convention. These items show how amazingly skilled fans of the series are when not constantly playing games from the franchise. A most recent fan-made item from Etsy helps pay a nod to the Gate of Time from Skyward Sword...

Nintendo of Japan recently shared an updated list of Wii U and 3DS titles that have sold at least a million units.
