We don't talk about Smash Bros. around these parts very often, though that may be changing as we get our official Zelda Informer Smash Tournament off the ground (more on that later). Still, it's hard to ignore the absolutely hilarious video created by SoKrispyMedia. The concept is simple enough - take Super Smash Bros. and make it first person through a virtual reality headset. The main person in the video puts on the headset and becomes Mario battling against a real life (well, virtual reality real) version of Link...

YouTuber versus put together a new parody song and video of the popular Starships song by Nicki Minaj. They based this parody on The Wind Waker, telling Link's tale in a pretty funny and unique way. As a warning, there is some suggestive material in the song and some cussing, but considering the song it is a parody of.. that shouldn't surprise anyone. Still, it's a pretty clever and overall funny take on a popular song from a few years back dealing with our favorite hero clad in green...

Did You Know Gaming? is a fairly popular group of people that cover interesting and often unheard of facts for various video games. They sometimes release these facts individually through an image, or they cover as many as they can dig up for a game in video form. The latter form is what they released today for Majora's Mask, the game that recently got remade into Majora's Mask 3D. (Are you stuck? Check out our 100% Majora's Mask 3D Walkthrough!)...

In a recent video uploaded to IGN's YouTube channel, various members of the IGN staff discuss why they love The Legend of Zelda for the NES, and why they believe it was so successful.

One of the first topics of discussion was the marketing choices Nintendo of America made at the time. One choice in particular was the gold cartridge that The Legend of Zelda was commonly sold on...

Rozen, known for his work on the Harmony of Heroes album, has released a new album featuring 5 amazing tracks from Twilight Princess, completely done in his own style. Having listened to them myself, I can safely say they are beyond epic. Here is what he has to say about the album itself...

It seems that a popular trend today is recreating various video game characters and worlds in Unreal Engine 4, likely as a testing out of the extremely open platform. Long before many of the things we are seeing today occurred, South Cloth Town was recreated in it. Back in December 2014, YouTuber Wesley Paquette uploaded a video of his amazing work on Clock Town. The video, as seen above, somehow flew under our radar, but we're not about...

Whenever folks think about apocalyptic events in video games, Fallout is often the first game series that comes to mind. The entire premise of the game deals with what happens after an apocalypse. As it turns out, Hyrule and all the stories within it may deal with the same sort of world. Events laid out in Skyward Sword suggest heavily that the height of civilization happened a long time ago after the world was created...

We talked about Player Piano last year when they posted a video improvising music to 7 different NES era games, include The Legend of Zelda. What was great about it at the time is that the person playing did it all by ear - there was no practice of any kind. I know this isn't unheard of in the piano playing world, but it was great seeing it happen for many NES games that are so beloved by video game fans the world over...

If any Zelda tune should get a mariachi cover, it's the Latin-flavored Gerudo Valley theme, with its soulful guitar, emotive horns, and syncopated beat. DaneYard Shift, a mariachi band that has covered a number of video game songs on Youtube, brings us such a rendition, with a rousing performance of the theme in 6/4 time... 

Not to be confused with the "With Lyrics" series by brentalfloss, YouTuber Animation Domination High-Def (ADHD) took the Zelda theme from the first game released back in 1986 and gave it some lyrics with a nifty animation. The song itself plays on many of the quirks within the series...
