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...

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...

Rune abilities are a brand new concept in Breath of the Wild that are gathered from various shrines and applied to Link through the Sheikah Slate. To date, we know about four of these abilities, all of which are attainable on the Great Plateau (the starting area of the game). Nintendo of Europe provided us a clip showing off those abilities in the order of Cryonis, Magnesis, Bombs, and Stasis. These abilities allow fun and creative ways to solve puzzles and traverse the world...

For years, speedrunners of The Wind Waker have searched endlessly for a glitch known as the "Barrier Skip," a way to bypass an energy barrier blocking Link's path from Hyrule Castle to Ganon's Tower during the hero's first visit to the submerged kingdom. The Barrier Skip always seemed like an impossible goal, that is, until just recently. Last week, Zelda speedrunner LinkOscuro finally managed to achieve the skip in The Wind Waker HD, capturing the occasion on Twitch...

Earlier this month we talked about a new book called the Hyrule Graphics Art Book, , a book that promised to contain all of the official art from the entirety of the series. In the west we are receiving something very similar, though under a new name called The Legend of Zelda: Arts & Artifacts. The big difference between this book and that book at the outset is that this one will contain art from the whole series through Breath of the Wild (it may even be possible that it contains yet to be released...

The Legend of Zelda - Legendary Edition has the first volume arriving this November. It is a series that collects multiple volumes of the same manga together into bigger collections for a more concise collection. The first volume includes two volumes from the Ocarina of Time manga series. Thanks to Amazon, we now have a fresh look at both the front and back covers of it. it looks pretty stunning, though a bit similar (in my opinion) to Hyrule Historia. You can nab a pre-order here...

Breath of the Wild's pre-release awards continue to pile up. After winning practically every possible game of show award it could at E3, Breath of the Wild has now taken home the best of Gamescom award, which was given by the official Gamescom website. It also won best Wii U game, but that's obviously a side note as you aren't going to win best of show as an exclusive and not be the best game on your given platform. I think at this point we've gotten all we really need to get for this title...
