Today we have a little something special for our fans with our first exclusive guitar duet on our YouTube channel, featuring the talents from 72 Hours Remaining. You may remember them as the duo that did the Romance in the Air song, as they continue their Skyward Sword love by offering up ZI an exclusive. We've developed a working relationship with this now growing YouTube talent (they're over 500 subs strong since we brought them to you all). We're glad you enjoy their stuff...

First 4 Figures makes some of the very best The Legend of Zelda collectible statues with a vast array of different characters represented. They have Skull Kid from Majora's MaskDark Link from Ocarina of TimeGanondorf from Twilight Princess, among 16 other high quality statues. They typically range between $99 to $479 USD, with the more expensive statues being much larger and featuring far more detailed work. While they are well regarded, I personally haven't had the liberty to verify the quality - though several of our fans seem to lay claim that they are worth it...

Eggbusters is back (okay, they never really left) with another video tackling glitches in a Zelda game. For those who aren't aware, Eggbusters is a show that tackles supposed glitches in various games as claimed by the internet and then confirms or deconfirms if they work. Then, if it does work, they try and see everything you can possibly do with the glitch itself. One of their most popular episodes ever actually involved some very neat glitches from Twilight Princess. The person who does the videos does tend to fangasm over Skyward Sword's beauty (and hey, we totally understand!)...

72 Hours Remaining is a musical project composed of two seasoned guitar players that arrange music from the Zelda series for two classical guitars...

There are many beautiful pieces of The Legend of Zelda fan art floating around on the Internet, but self-taught Hungarian artist, Adam Scythe, has created a watercolour painting timelapse that truly is a masterpiece.

This box set lightning deal is technically "sold out", however, everyone who added it to their cart hasn't checked out. What that means is that if they don't check out in a short amount of time, the item becomes available again and is optioned to folks who add themselves to the wait list. If you add your name to the waitlist for the item, there is a chance you could get the Zelda Box Set for guides, valued at $180, for just $80. That's a really big and really rare deal for Zelda collectors out there. I don't have the Box Set myself yet, so I already have my waitlist claim in. Get yours in while there is still time...

I know around these parts IGN isn't necessarily viewed in a positive light, but when they happen to do something interesting when talking about Zelda it's almost always worth taking a look at it. Be it fan voting, editorials, or in this case a nice video feature. They break down the visual history of Link, and frankly they do a great job. It's neat see how much (or little) he has truly changed over the years and when certain aspects of his garb were introduced. Of course the feature isn't 100% perfect, but I'm the guy that mispronounced "Hylian" and "Fi". No one's perfect...

This has been a topic of debate in the Zelda fan base since 1998. We've written many editorials about it and even had it as a fairly recent Daily Debate topic when talking about Hyrule Warriors. As of today we now have an official stance from Nintendo, one that puts the entire debate to bed. Is Sheik a female? Is Sheik a male (through the power of magical transformation)? We now know. Bill Trinen, Nintendo's senior product marketing manager and the main guy we've seen publicly as the official translator for Shigeru Miyamoto in the United States, has given Nintendo's official stance...

Gotta go fast!

I've always admired speedrunners. Delving into a game's code to learn the intricacies and behind-the-scenes shortcuts to reach completion is an incredible feat, and it blows my mind when someone can beat a game in three hours, when it took me over fifty on my playthrough. Add Twitch user Bob_Loblaw_Law to that list of people I admire, not only for having an awesome Arrested Development name, but also for completing a 100% run of Skyward Sword in only eight hours, thirty-five minutes, and twenty-eight seconds. That's a new world record.

Although the actual speedrun is a tad old now, it's still an incredible feat to watch. Check it out inside.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was a fantastic game, filled with epic battles, an enormous world, and a...horribly flawed storyline. Over the past few months, we've reviewed numerous issues with the story and proposed methods through which they could have been resolved – all while trying to maintain the same basic story as in the game we got. It's one thing to provide a solution; it's another challenge entirely to do so in ways that the development team could have feasibly implemented. Sure, not every idea was that simple...but then, I made no promises that they would be.

All the work we've done has been segmented: we've dealt with one issue at a time, rewriting it as best we could. Even so, it should be clear by now that I've been writing these articles with an overarching perspective – after all, we've often taken aspects of previous articles to use later in the series. So today, since we've gone through all the major issues that I noticed, I figured it was a good time for a general recap.

Herein lies the entire reworked tale of Twilight Princess, replete with all of the changes that I've put forward over the course of this series. It's my hope that, by viewing all these changes in one place, you can see the vision that I've had for the game.
