The Oracle games are notable for featuring three animal companions with very different special abilities that shape the gameplay. Dimitri is a Dodongo capable of swimming up waterfalls and against strong river currents; Moosh is a flying bear that can hover in the air for quite some time, allowing Link to cross holes in the land safely; and Ricky is a boxing kangaroo that can jump short distances and scale walls with Link in his pouch. Depending on how the…

With The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild, many of us were surprised when the whole theme of the typical dungeon’s was removed and replaced by the Divine Beasts. What was once a rather arduous (and sometimes hair pulling) adventure became, in my opinion, more about puzzle solving than anything. Such as “How do I get across Vah Medoh without falling to my death?” or  “How am I supposed to connect these electrical lines for Vah Ruta, because this isn’t…

Although no concrete date has been given yet, Breath of the Wild’s Champions’ Ballad DLC is still scheduled to arrive before the end of this year. The story expansion will reportedly take place after the events of the main game, as well as feature a new dungeon. Beyond that information, though, DLC Pack 2 is shrouded in mystery. With that said, what’s the one thing that, above all else, you hope Breath of the Wild’s last hurrah accomplishes? Are you crossing your…

We all know that Ganon keeps coming back again and again (and again) to torment Link, Zelda, and Hyrule. Numerous times throughout the series, we have seen the King of Evil rear his ugly head to wreak havoc on the land of Hyrule. Faring not so well are the secondary villains of the series. Zelda has somewhat fallen into the trap of ‘have secondary villain set things in motion, only to be defeated and never heard from again’. This was…

Zelda II: The Adventure of a Link is a weird game. Released at a time when video game sequels rarely stuck to formula, this follow-up to the 1986 classic bucked many its predecessor’s defining qualities. The Zelda series had no set identity at that time, allowing Nintendo to experiment with drastic design changes and new gameplay ideas. And while the series eventually committed to the template set by the original game, Zelda II remains an intriguing oddity among the most…

We’re just about two years removed from Tri Force Heroes release, and it’s now pretty safe to say that this multiplayer adventure is not among the most popular Zelda games. Though its charm and originality can be admired, TFH simply failed to resonate with the fanbase in a meaningful way. Compare that response to a similar title, Four Swords Adventures. Though alike in many ways, FSA seems to be better accepted by the Zelda community by a considerable degree. But…

Like many of you probably did, I recently bought (and played the hell out of) Metroid: Samus Returns. In addition to the game, I bought the 2-Pack of Metroid amiibo that released alongside it, probably for my money the best looking set of amiibo that Nintendo has made yet. Releasing amiibo in 2- or 3-packs isn’t totally new, with the Zelda series getting in on the action with the Toon Link/Toon Zelda pack and the upcoming 4-Pack of Champion amiibo…

The Legend of Zelda series is known for its many items throughout the series, ranging from classics such as the Boomerang and Bow to more unique weapons such as the Gust Bellows from Skyward Sword and the Spinner from Twilight Princess. However, while it would be amazing to see a Zelda game where every item in the series was implemented, that would be incredibly hard to achieve. However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t see items from previous games brought into…

The Legend of Zelda series, for the most part, has always been fairly straightforward in game design and story elements. Once you’ve beaten a game, if you have paid careful attention through your adventure, you can remember exactly what routes to take to get through dungeons and to collect certain items, which takes some of the challenge away in future playthroughs. But in the past, some Zelda games have added different modes to change things up a bit. Should future…

Okay, okay – Okami isn’t a Zelda game, so we probably shouldn’t be debating about, but what they hey. It’s always been like a close cousin of the Zelda series and is often referred to as one of the best Zelda games that’s not actually a Zelda game, so debate we will! Recently, Capcom announced that an HD port of their 2006 adventure game would be headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows. Already an absolutely gorgeous game, the…
