This is a huge direct comparison of every main-line Zelda game released and how it performed critically, sales wise, and in term of average completion time when playing. The list was compiled by a site called ScoreGods. It's very interesting to take all opinionated viewpoints out and just look at statistical evidence. It's neat seeing what games seem to have performed the best over long periods of time. Head inside.

While most of the major Zelda related Smash news has been covered by us already, there are two tidbits we mentioned but never actually took a good look at. We change that today, as we introduce the Zelda down special attack that involves the Phantom (presumably from Spirit Tracks) and Stalfos, enemies from Ocarina of Time. Head inside.

The Zelda series is getting a lot of love in Smash Bros. 4, and part of that love includes three confirmed Zelda themed stages. The only one we know about on the Wii U version so far is Skyloft, with Gerudo Valley and Spirit Train appearing as stages for the 3DS version. We've seen all three stages before, but now we get a bit of a closer look with all new screenshots. Head inside to take a look!

Of all the assist trophies (of which there are many), by far Skull Kid and Midna are among many of our favorites. While some may be upset because this means they aren't playable, that doesn't mean they won't have an impact. After all, assist trophies do attack and act as characters in battle when activated. That means that both Midna and Skull Kid have at least one attack, if not several. We know about two of the attacks, so head inside to get a closer view.

Yesterday's Nintendo Direct revealed a surprising amount of information for the new Smash games, with no shortage of news for the Zelda fans; we've gotten a ton of new information on the items, the reveal of Midna as an assist trophy, and a clip of Skull Kid in action. Amidst all the excitement, we also got the entirely unexpected news that Bombchus—featured most prominently in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask—will be a new item in the game. We already mentioned that yesterday, but it's time to delve into some more details.

Everyone's favorite disguised princess is back for another iteration of Smash Bros, and she (please guys, let's not argue about the gender stuff here) comes with a few new tricks up her sleeve!

To begin, Zelda does not transform into Sheik anymore, and vice versa—they are now their own distinct characters. For those who were fond of the transformation, though, perhaps you can take solace in the new additions to their movesets. Zelda's brand new Down Special unleashes one of the Phantoms of Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks fame for a swift attack that can also block enemy attacks. Sakurai was quick to warn, however, that the Phantom can be reflected by moves like Mario's cape, in which case the Phantom's strike will hit Zelda instead.

Sheik has two brand new attacks. Her Side Special is now the "Burst Grenade," an explosive projectile connected to Sheik's chain; by pulling out the pin with her cord, it detonates. Her new Down Special is the "Bouncing Fish," an acrobatic kicking attack which looks to launch her upwards when on the ground. Seems to pack a pretty good punch!

Awhile back we reported that Zelda Monopoly was going to be an actual thing at some point this year, but now we have our first tangible evidence of progress on this initiative. In addition, another Zelda related item was discovered that might be a bit more limited. That would be an Ocarina of Time Collectors Edition puzzle, of which we have pictures of these items inside.

While we don't have any new screenshots or video to show you, we do have a few more details about the game itself, specifically in terms of changes to the combat when compared to prior Dynasty Warrior games. Official Nintendo Magazine did a rather lengthy interview with the Director/Producer of the entire Dynasty Warriors series, but unfortunately he wasn't able to reveal a lot of new revelations for Hyrule Warriors. Still, we have some new details for you after the jump.

It is no secret that the Zelda DLC for Sonic Lost World was very good. So good some Zelda fans even claimed they went out to buy Sonic Lost World just to play that singular DLC. The best part of course was that the DLC was 100% free. Beyond all this however, it seems the team had a really enjoyable time making the DLC. According to Takashi Iizuka, the producer of Sonic Lost World and the main man behind the Zelda DLC, he wants to make even more Zelda DLC. Head inside.

First 4 Figures is known for crafting some of the very best collectible statues on the market. They are generally of the highest quality, and they aren't some mini figurines you stack around your monitor. They measure almost always over a foot tall, and in the case of today's newest edition to their Twilight Princess lineup, Zelda herself stands at a cool 17 inches tall. She certainly looks impressive, and for a $350 price point she should be. Sounds expensive? It's really not, when you consider the quality and size.

This is a collectors item that is going to last a long time and retain much of its value so long as you take proper care of it. In fact the value is sure to rise, as this is limited to just 2500 total statues. However for any Zelda fanatic, the real value of such a statue is priceless. Head inside to see every possible angle and feature this statue holds.
