It's hard to believe that the Zelda series has been in our lives for over 30 years now. This series was created during a time where video games were still in the infancy of their life and ever since then have shaped some people's lives. These people (like myself) can remember the first time we booted up our copy of a Zelda game and watched the opening intro. This start menu was the beginning of a grand adventure and the potential of something more...

There are a lot of swords in the Zelda series. Even some of those who have never played a Zelda game know of the Master Sword. With all these swords brought to our attention over the span of 30 years, there has to be a narrowed down list of which ones stand out. Some have to be a little better than the others. Dr. Wily knows this, and has set out to name the top five swords in Zelda.

I won't spoil the entire video for you, but I will talk about one listing...

New SpotPass bonus content for Hyrule Warriors Legends on 3DS is now available, which you should receive by connecting your 3DS to the internet. Keep in mind you must have SpotPass enabled for the game. If you haven't done that yet, you'll probably want to do so. Anyways, let's take a look at the rewards being given to players...

In the Zelda series, we see the different species that are introduced in the games, such as the Zora people and the Rito Tribe from The Wind Waker. Sometimes it can be pretty obvious on how these different species reproduce and continue their lineage. However, other times the idea of reproduction can be very vague among the species, especially with the Gorons. Throughout the games, we see many male Gorons and there is no hint of a female in the tribe. This YouTube theory may be able to shine the light on the mysterious biological case...

With the fall season upon us, Musterbrand has been granted permission from Nintendo to debut a new clothing line based on the protagonist from The Legend of Zelda. That's right, this apparel draws inspiration from the man in green himself. Here's a nifty excerpt from the press release promoting the clothing...

Many instruments have been used throughout the years to recreate and even remix some iconic music from the Zelda series. There are of course the usual suspects like a piano, guitar, violin, harp, ukulele, and even one's own voice. The instruments being used for this cover are definitely something I never thought I would ever cover for this site. I say this because the musician we're looking at today used literal computer hardware to give us one of the more interesting covers I think I've ever heard...

Zelda merchandise is something that a lot fans own. Having Link standing on top of your shelf can show your guests that yes, you do play Zelda games. If you're looking for more merchandise to adorn your place of residence, these Twilight Princess Figmas may be what you're looking for.

Link can be preordered here for $48.99 USD, and comes with three different face plates...

It's easy to forget and not necessarily well known these days, as Zelda Informer itself has become known as a news outlet held to certain journalistic standards (and hey, we thank you for that!), but we were founded by a group of writers called The Bombers who hailed from Zelda Universe as an established group of Zelda theorist. That's right, the very foundation of Zelda Informer wasn't news, guides, forums, or anything else in-between. It was theories, with everything else built around them. That has changed drastically over the years...

Good afternoon, all you ZI readers. Join us for yet another entry in our weekly Caption Contest. At the Tokyo Game Show a few weeks back, a lot of news came out about Hideo Kojima's next project Death Stranding. Don't ask me why, but it just so happened that while Kojima was taking to the TGS stage to discuss his new game, I came across this strange image which blends Death Stranding and The Legend of Zelda. I can't for the life of me understand why this picture exists. Maybe you can help me in this week's contest...

It is always fun to find Easter eggs hiding in a video game and Nintendo is no stranger to including them in their games. For instance, Link appears in Super Mario RPG, TetrisDonkey Kong Country 2 and even Mario Golf. Also, some characters from other games show up in The Legend of Zelda franchise. Curse Entertainment compiled a list of more than 20 Easter eggs hidden throughout the saga. While some might be well-known, for example, the many characters in Link's Awakening...
