Buckle in, everyone, cause this is gonna be a long one. This post is gonna be part analysis, part fan-fiction, all spoilers, and all awesome, so without any further ado, let’s get right into it.

Never the less, the plot of Breath of the Wild has left some of the hardcore Zelda fans a little… wanting. I…

Once you’ve gone down the rabbit hole… can you ever go back? No one would deny that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a smashing success. It’s one of the most critically acclaimed games of all time. It’s Nintendo’s fastest selling stand alone launch title ever. And it completely flipped the switch on the series in a way not seen since Ocarina of Time almost twenty years earlier. Breath of the Wild is certainly a landmark achievement…

From the first moments that I started playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I could tell I was in for an amazingly rewarding experience. The world around me was captivating, breathtaking, and full of wonder at seemingly every turn. What the game lacks in plot, it more than makes up for in its ability to immerse you into this fantastical world, one where every blade of grass and every drop of snow feels like it tells a…

I will be talking about spoilers (or at least memories and after game events) from not only Breath of the Wild, but also almost every main entry Legend of Zelda game. Proceed with caution. Still here? Good. Let’s continue. When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was officially unveiled at E3 2016, I couldn’t wait to see Link, Zelda, Tingle and the gang again in a new adventure. With just the slightest of story elements revealed about the…

A lot has happened since since June 2014. We had the ugliest US Presidential election in recent memory. We had cracks form in the European Union. We’ve had multiple shootings, terrorist acts, and other tragedies come to pass. And with the constant passing of heroes of yesterday, icons like David Bowie or Prince, to Carrie Fisher or Alan Rickman, the world seems to be growing just a little bit darker with each day.  But on March 3rd, we have a…

Just as a heads up, this article contains heavy spoilers for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. However, it is to your benefit to be familiar with the game’s story as I will not dive into every aspect of the plot and seek to summarize it. This is merely a literary analysis of the game, comparing it to a traditional writing method and established archetypes. The adventure of the hero is an old storytelling mechanic that dates back to…

The Defenders of the Triforce puzzle escape game recently made its debut in cities around the country, giving lucky fans the chance to step into the world of Zelda and assume the role of a legendary hero. Zelda Informer traveled to San Francisco to participate in one of the game’s first sessions, hoping to put our own Legend of Zelda knowhow to the test and overcome the challenges set before us. Join us as we share our impressions of the…

Earlier today, Nintendo confirmed the next installment of The Legend of Zelda would be receiving paid DLC. Fans can purchase a season pass (which Nintendo is calling an “expansion pass”) for Breath of the Wild. I jumped for joy when I saw the news. However, when I checked my various social media feeds, I was met with a flaming debate on whether the game’s DLC is justified. First, let’s examine what exactly this download-able content is. DLC Pack 1 (Summer) Adds new Cave…

It’s almost cliche at this point to talk about the odyssey that has been The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s development history. We all know the story and thankfully, finally, mercifully, it’s almost over. We are less than a month away from Nintendo launching their most important title ever on the Wii U and the upcoming Nintendo Switch. But wait – something about that last sentence doesn’t make sense. Perhaps it should read like this instead: Why is…

What a year it’s been for Zelda fans. With the never-ending odyssey that has been The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s release and development schedule finally drawing to a close, we can now finally take a breath and start thinking about the next game in the Zelda series.
