Hey there, ZI fans. It may be a little late, but Zelda Informer’s Photoshop Contest is back again with force. This weekend saw the release of the new Power Rangers film, igniting the collective nostalgia of an entire generation. With such a special mix of fight scenes, kaiju battles, and high school angst, Power Rangers has a special place in hearts of many 90’s kids, very much The Legend of Zelda I would assume. With that in mind, this week’s…

No, this isn’t another “should Link be a girl” debate. This week, we discuss the controversy surrounding the character Villia in Breath of the Wild and Link crossdressing. We also discuss the recent controversy surrounding Colin Moriarty, formerly from Kinda Funny. While we’re not talking about the president or anything like that, these topics fall into the realm of politics, but they also apply globally, so everyone can enjoy our discussion! Please, if you’re going to debate in the comments,…

During my many hours spent rummaging around the amazing open world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I’ve come across some pretty awesome weaponry. Everything from swords to axes to bows to… boat paddles. There’s seemingly a weapon for every occasion. While my personal preference was always broad swords, I found myself developing an unexpected affinity for axe’s by games end. Heading into my final fight with the Calamity Ganon, I doubled checked my arsenal just to…

One mechanic in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a pretty awesome ability of Link’s, namely snowboarding (shieldboarding?) down a mountain. During this sequence, everyone’s favorite Hylian actually looks like he pulls off a few tricks, 1080°-style, and does a pretty good job of it too, I gotta say. The sporting world isn’t as foreign to the Zelda series as you might think. Link appeared (and will appear again on Switch) in Mario Kart 8 as an unlockable racer, and we all…

Music in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is yet another convention broken for this 30-year-old franchise. While rolling through the old hills of Hyrule, one usually hears a familiar theme for the area. However, in Breath of the Wild, players may only be comforted (or frightened) by the sounds of nature around them. When there is music in the overworld, it’s typically simplistic, covered with the fingerprints of Animal Crossing‘s own Manaka Kataoka. This is not to say there are no masterful themes throughout Breath…

Happy Monday, ZI fans. I hope you’re ready for another exciting entry of our weekly Caption Contest. We have spent the last several weeks highlighting screenshots from Breath of the Wild, showing off various persons and places of the new adventure. One particular character that has made quite a splash in the days since the game’s release is Zora prince Sidon. This royal fish-man has proven to be quite a dreamy specimen. He always has time to be supportive, he’s…

Warning: Breath of the Wild spoilers ahead! It’s been over two weeks since Breath of the Wild’s release. At this point, many of us have at least gotten a feel for the game, if not completed the quest outright. With two dungeons, 24 shrines and about thirty hours clocked into my adventure, I have had my fair share of surprises. The game is relentless in its efforts to provide the player with something new at seemingly every other turn. Some…

Happy Saturday, everyone. It’s time again to kick off Zelda Informer’s famed Photoshop Contest. My life continues to be consumed by Breath of the Wild chicanery, and this week I found myself successfully taming a few wild beasts out on the plains. Link is surprisingly versatile, able to tame and ride many things from horses, to bucks, to even bears. With that in mind, this week’s contest will ask contestants to ‘shop our hero riding some beasts of their choosing….

This week, Andy, Nate, and I discuss Breath of the Wild’s story. So, of course, there are going to be some spoilers. For the most part, it’s all that we talk about, so if you don’t want to hear anything about it or have anything potentially spoiled for you, then it’s safe to say you’ll want to avoid this one (just set a reminder to come back once you’ve finished the story!) You won’t hurt anyone’s feelings but mine if…

Warning: We’ll try to keep the picture gallery as spoiler free as possible, but just in case, there could be some slight spoilers to be seen here. Few games have captivated me the same way The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has. From its sprawling vistas to vast canyons, it’s serene fields to its snowy peaks, Breath of the Wild has offered some truly amazing scenery to accompany Link on his latest adventure. Using my Switch’s capture button,…
