The first of two DLC for Breath of the Wild will be releasing in a little less than two weeks, and it’s jam-packed with several new features that will give Zelda fans hours and hours of new gameplay. Just to quickly recap what we’re expecting in this upcoming DLC, we’ll be getting a Master Mode that will make gameplay significantly more challenging, a trial to enhance the Master Sword known as the Trial of the Sword, the Hero’s Path tacking…

On their first day of E3, Nintendo decided to showcase The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s first DLC, showing gameplay of what will appear in the first DLC pack as well as showing a trailer for the second DLC pack. In celebration of both, I will give a rundown of what we know about both DLCs so that you can decide which one you’re more hyped for. Breath of the Wild‘s first DLC pack, the Master Trials, adds…

Breath of the Wild is a game as deep as it is broad. Hyrule isn’t just massive, it hides a wealth of secrets, Easter eggs and features that continue to surprise players hours beyond their departure from The Great Plateau. Massive, snaking, elemental dragons that soar through the sky, skeletal Stalhorses that can be ridden until they crumble at the break of day and even the emergence of the rupee-snatching Great Fairys, Breath of the Wild offers a plethora of…

From the moment Link stepped out into the world of Breath of the Wild, it was clear the game was huge. From the vantage point of a treacherous cliff face with an ever so inviting drop, Breath of the Wild unfolds, but just how long does it take to grasp the feral heart of the greatest Zelda in years? The Great Plateau deftly introduces the core mechanics of climbing, shrine solving and cooking, having to become the Bear Grylls of Hyrule…

Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference is less than a week away. This year promises to focus big on Nintendo’s upcoming titles like Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, and Metroid (okay, maybe not that last one). While The Legend of Zelda dominated Nintendo’s E3 presentation last year — it was literally the only game they showed — it looks to have a much smaller presence this year. Of course, we can still expect some information on Breath of the Wild’s upcoming Winter…

Needless to say, the Zelda series has gotten it’s fair share of amiibo, and there’s even more being released later this month. However, out of all eighteen Zelda amiibo, eleven of them are Link in one variation or another. I mean, I get it, there are many different variations of Link, but there really isn’t much more representation of other characters aside from the main hero, the princess, and a couple villains. So the question is, which character would you feature…

Spin-off! Is there any word more thrilling to the human soul? It’s a commonplace tactic in all forms of fiction, from movies, to TV shows, to books. Video games are no different. So many new series have been created with side characters from previous games. It’s how we have such series as Donkey Kong Country, the Wario series, as well as the Mega Man X franchise. While there have been some spin-off games in The Legend of Zelda franchise, none…

The Legend of Zelda has contained many memorable, challenging, and fun boss fights, with some examples including Ganon from The Wind Waker, Dark Link from The Adventure of Link, and Majora from Majora’s Mask. However, none were as challenging as the final boss of Breath of the Wild: Calamity Ganon. I will be discussing the boss fight and story of Breath of the Wild in detail so, if you would like to avoid any spoilers, here is your obligatory SPOILER…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a pretty intricate system for catching and keeping horses. You could not only catch the different horses, name them, and transfer them around the land with you, but each horse had different strengths and weaknesses. But what about Loftwings? Long before Link would ever set foot on the realm that would be known as Hyrule to ride a horse, he was flying the majestic birds in the sky above Skyloft. Imagine…

Lore is seemingly essential to the Zelda series when it comes to its storytelling. Often, the games with the most original lore have intriguing stories. Majora’s Mask, for example, has a rather straightforward story, but Termina’s lore makes the story richer. However, when it comes to a game like Breath of the Wild where most of the lore is hidden in flashbacks. Despite this, the overall experience of the game is still fun. Even with the little lore you are…
