Internet celebrity iJustine managed to sit down with The Legend of Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto, along with translator Bill Trinen, and ask them a couple of questions about upcoming games. After learning more about the size of Zelda U's world and how it'll influence the gameplay, they eventually reached the topic of amiibo support. She asked about how the amiibo would be integrated into the new Star Fox or Zelda games, to which he replied...

Starbomb is an American comedy supergroup that produces parody songs of popular video game franchises. With the recent release of their second album, "Player Select", comes a brand new The Legend of Zelda parody titled "The Hero of Rhyme". The song consists of Link attempting to save Hyrule using only the power of his voice and rapping skills. As you can guess, it doesn't really go all that well for him. If you'd like to hear the song...

In a recent interview with iJustine, Shigeru Miyamoto has shared some interesting facts about the initial development plan for the world in Zelda U. He explains that, with every Zelda game, they always try to present Hyrule as this big world for the player to explore. Due to the hardware limitations of previous consoles, the only way they could achieve this was by segmenting each area and then piecing them together. Thanks to the hardware capabilities of the Wii U, they decided to try and approach this idea differently. They started off by creating a world the size of...

Pianist and composer Sonya Belousova of PlayerPianoMusic.com demonstrates her musical skill as she hears snippets of and improvises on beloved video-game themes like, Super Mario Bros., Street Fighter, Kid Icarus, and, of course, The Legend of Zelda. Since authors here at ZeldaInformer recently have put out a fair amount of literature on Koji Kondo's favorite musical themes, projects, and so forth, this video attests to the cultural and artistic capital he has gained even in performance practices long associated with classical-music traditions.

The Boss Man has returned to the normal weekly schedule, fresh with a new video editor and some Zelda U and Nintendo talk. I do realize the camera itself seems to be a bit dark, so I will be fixing the lighting for next weeks episode. I am also taking suggestions for a clip on microphone setup, as I am really new to recording equipment. Is there something that has great quality at an affordable price? I think I've reached the limits of what I can do in a video series with my Blue Yeti microphone. That being said, I hope you enjoy the show...

Have you ever wanted to have a Zelda themed Christmas? Well, iHasCupquake of YouTube has created a “make your own Navi ornament” tutorial. In this three minute tutorial, iHasCupquake shows a simple and cheap way to create your own little Navi tree ornament using easily accessible materials. The great thing about this tutorial is that it allows you to expand what you've learned and make many more ornaments...

72HoursRemaining is a musical group dedicated to creating guitar arrangements out of songs from the Legend of Zelda series. If their name sounds familiar to you, that's because we've not only written about them before, but they've even worked on an exclusive song for us. This time around they've released a new song: Tal Tal Heights from Link's Awakening. Even though they created the arrangement themselves, they still struggled trying to pull it off in one sitting. It seems to be a rather difficult piece to play, but from the sound of it, the hardship...

Until the premiere of Skyward Sword, The Legend of Zelda games consistently have featured a synthesized musical soundscape to accompany Link on his adventures. Music either synthesized or generated from computer-software programs represented to some a welcomed tradition, a sort of trademark of the game. To others it was old-fashioned and not in a good way. As far as dissenters were concerned, a game of such scope and epic proportions required comparable music, e.g. acoustic or electro-acoustic instruments. Notwithstanding events like the “Symphony of the Goddess” tour, if we want to hear the music of Zelda, then we have to download midi-audio files where we can find them (if you haven’t checked out the Legend of Zelda Music and Soundtracks from ZeldaUniverse.com, then I highly encourage you to set aside a few hours and become the figurative kid in a candy store).

Gaijin Goombah is keen on connecting The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask with African culture, to the point where he's working on what seems to be a four part series of videos linking the two. If this sounds in any way familiar to you, that's because back in October we reported on his first video where he examines the different bosses in the game. This time around he tries to correlate the usage of masks as a central theme in the game with that of the African culture. He explores the similarities between not only their meaning, but the way in which they are used, both methodically...

Japan's first wave of amiibo figures, consisting of both the first and second Western waves, is now officially out in stores. YouTuber NihongoGamer has taken the liberty to show us an up close look of Princess Zelda, along with some gameplay footage of the amiibo in action. It actually looks surprisingly better than what I had originally thought. 

First thing we see is that, just like the others, her pose is based on her official art from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. The detail...
