When first playing Ocarina of Time as a kid, the first dungeon that really tested my patience was the Forest Temple. It was not only the first Adult Link dungeon, but was also the area that truly tested your skills with the game considering the first three dungeons were essentially a cake walk. The real challenge of the temple wasn't even Phantom Ganon, but surviving the puzzles the temple threw at you. While not the most widely regarded dungeon in the Zelda series, AlbertREWesker has decided to bring the Forest Temple back to life...

This week on the ZI Podcast we dive deep into all of your burning topic suggestions. We had a huge swath of topic ideas from all over our fan base and we wanted to make sure we covered as many of them as we could. However, one particular topic about dungeons in Breath of the Wild ended up spinning off into one of the most interesting discussions we've ever had on the podcast about that game... how story will be presented in a world through a method few if any games have ever even attempted to do before...

September is supposedly the month of NX, as Nintendo should reveal the console answering the burning questions we have about it. Then, we wait another 6 months until NX's scheduled launch in March. While we still wait for its actual reveal, there has been a lot of debate going around the Internet recently about just how the company should be showing it off for the first time. I thought it would make a great topic for a Daily Debate, so let's have at it.

Some would prefer Nintendo to use their Nintendo Direct livestream format as a tool to reveal the NX...

Nintendo is still continuing its social media campaign for Breath of the Wild, and is posting videos of similar length regarding various aspects of the game. So far we've seen videos for the rune abilities, magnesis, the Woodcutter's house and axe, and the Koroks. Today, the company released a brand new clip regarding different weapons, with Link masterfully using them against some unfortunate foes.

I am very impressed with Link's fancy footwork in the video...

The English translation of Twilight Princess' manga by Akira Himekawa, courtesy of VIZ Media, doesn't release until next year. If you simply can't wait to get your hands on this new chapter in the Zelda manga, you can ensure getting a copy as soon as possible by pre-ordering it on Amazon. The official release date is March 7th, 2017, so you still have a large chunk of time to wait. Coincidentally, March is also the month NX is scheduled to release.

For $10 USD, all the fans in the USA can pre-order the manga...

There are many styles of covers artists are able to produce. Just in the last week we've featured a metal cover, a mandolin cover, a hip hop cover, and more. As good as those tracks are, I notice one particular style of cover that gets the most hype—acapella. A well known acapella artist by the name of Smooth McGroove has uploaded a new Zelda video, and in it he sings the Clock Town Day 1 theme from Majora's Mask.

McGroove, as is typical, records himself singing each individual part...

There are without a doubt some great side-quests in the Zelda series. One that immediately comes to mind is the Anju and Kafei quest, which is probably one of the most memorable missions of Majora's Mask. However, when I was playing through the game originally, I didn't complete it. Why, you ask? I was too busy trying to get through the main game to find other quests.

The question I'm posing here is simply this: Is side content that important in Zelda games?...

There's nothing like a good throwback to a very awesome game to remind you how great a video gaming franchise is. This is exactly what this video is is—a metal cover made by a YouTuber who goes by the name Celestial Fury that sends you back to the epic N64 adventure. This metal cover of the Prelude of Light from Ocarina of Time is just what every Zelda fan needs. It also includes Zelda's Lullaby, which fits very nicely with the key...

Legend of Kusakari is a Japanese adventure puzzle game about grass-cutting currently in development for the Nintendo 3DS, and is being made by a team called Nnooo. The company was interviewed recently, and talked about it's inspirations from The Legend of Zelda. They also mentioned they suspect Nintendo feels "favorable" regarding its Zelda inspirations, which is definitely a good thing. Check out the full quote...

As a big fan of Zelda, I have multiple Link figures in my house. I'm always on the look out for more merch, especially items on the affordable side. When I found out Medicom will be releasing three new Link figures from three different Zelda games with each running around $10 USD, I got pretty excited. Let's jump into the details.

The figures come from Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, and A Link Between Worlds. All three of the Links stand...
