Earlier this year I talked about 3 huge reasons I am frustrated with Nintendo to start 2015 and all of these reasons still hold true today. While I do talk about Nintendo a lot, specifically when it comes to the The Legend of Zelda series since it is my all time favorite video game franchise, I do so because of how much I enjoy them overall. Obviously I wouldn't be Editor-in-Chief of Zelda Informer if I wasn't, at the core, a pretty big Nintendo fan. So even though I have what I feel are some very valid reasons to be frustrated with them (and I know many of you have others, such as amiibo...

Most of us may not have a Japanese Nintendo 3DS, but that doesn't mean we can't drool over the new Zelda pins available in the Badge Center app on the 3DS eShop! This latest set is packed full of characters, enemies, items, and terrain from the original Legend of Zelda on NES...

There is no video game music I enjoy more than The Legend of Zelda's. It's great to see fans go above and beyond to put their own twists on these beloved songs. Tom Winter is no newbie when it comes to acoustically arranging Zelda tunes. He's previously recreated Zelda songs such as: Gerudo ValleyClock Town, and Kokiri Forest, just to name a few! In his latest video he's taken the short but sweet Great Fairy Fountain theme and soothed my head with soft guitar sweeps and harmonies...

While the Netflix Zelda TV series may not be a real thing (we honestly just don't know, Nintendo likes to talk circles around things), that doesn't mean a trailer couldn't possible exist right? Right. Okay, so this is a totally fake trailer, but it's pretty funny and comes from the fine folks over at Smosh. They are known for their parody videos and they have covered Zelda before in some other hilarious forms. This time they take on the Netflix rumor and run it with a trailer long joke of incest. I know, that sounds terrible, but it...

Last year we introduced you to an Ocarina of Time 2D project which was met with a lot of excitement but also some understandable skepticism. After all, it wasn't the first attempt at recreating the game in 2D and all prior attempts have fallen apart. So far however, this project is bucking that trending and has shown continuing monthly updates ever since. They released a new version of the game since we last posted about it, but more importantly they have a 3rd version on it's way featuring multiplayer capabilities...

As a cosplayer, I know the amount of time and work that goes into the craft, and everyone in this video aims to impress. I'll let the video speak for itself because there really isn't much to say. People are dressed like Zelda characters. The popularity of cosplay has increased drastically over the years to the point that people are now making a living off of it. While few reach that level, many do it for the sake of either pretending to be one of their favorite anime or video game characters or experiencing...

Like her or not, Lindsey Stirling has been extremely influential in bringing the violin out of the concert hall and into the mainstream as an instrument of modern music. Her fame has not only escalated from original works, but a number of her hits are melodies crafted from some of entertainment's most memorable series'. That being said, it's known by many fans of the  Zelda series that Stirling has a piece dedicated to it as well as a music video to go along with it.  Many of you have probably already heard the song, but you can check out the video above to see it "live". If you have never seen her perform on stage before...

Last year, Tom Banner Studios' Medieval combat game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare was made a whole lot more interesting with the release of a fan-made Zelda mod called The Legend of Chivalry. The mod places players in a first-person, Zelda-esque dungeon complete with puzzles, secrets, and bosses. A few days ago, Hutts Gaming Channel on YouTube stepped into The Legend of Chivalry and explored the labyrinth for himself...

A few months ago, we saw the premiere episode of Creatures of Hyrule, a series of fan films meant to bring the iconic beasts of Zelda to life. Last week, filmmaker Jared Potter and (part one) media released the series' second entry, titled Forest Guardian. In this action-packed episode, Link is confronted with a Stalfos, resulting in a life-threatening battle with the sword-fighting skeleton...

Something about the Zelda music makes it perfect for rock and metal covers. The tunes always retain their epic, orchestral nature, but the fast, layered melodies translate really well when played with heavy electric guitar. A few weeks ago, YouTube guitarist Deku Knight released a medley of Ocarina of Time tunes, collecting a few songs from the game and transforming them into a head-banging guitar track...
