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…

Hello there, ZI fans. Every Zelda game is finally represented as we conclude Round 0 of our Best Dungeon tournament. This week alone featured some of the series’ biggest hitters, including Skyward Sword and the newly-released Breath of the Wild. Interestingly, this week also saw the lowest trafficked poll with Tri Force Heroes, as many fans never played the game let alone finished it. Now, Week Three did bring up some interesting questions regarding what qualities define a dungeon in the Zelda series. Perhaps the biggest debate currently raging…

And so Round 0 of our Best Dungeon tournament comes to an end as we lay our votes on the Zelda series’ latest blockbuster. Despite the release of Tri Force Heroes and its handheld predecessor (the Sky Temple is narrowly leading the pack in that game’s poll), we all knew that we were really just waiting for Link’s next big adventure on the Wii U and Switch. And after years of delays and news droughts, Breath of the Wild finally…

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…

Welcome to the Cave of Trials. The premise is simple: Every week, two characters from The Legend of Zelda series will duke it out for the Zelda Informer Championship. Whoever has more votes at the end of the week, wins. This is strictly a popularity contest, not who you think would win in a fight; so vote for who you like better! The winner will then go on next week to defend the title against a new challenger, as decided by…

We’re nearing the end of this preliminary round of our Best Dungeon tournament, and a certain trio is ready to enter the ring. As Thieves’ Hideout takes the lead in our A Link Between Worlds poll, we take a look at the Zelda series’ latest stab at multiplayer gameplay. Tri Force Heroes might have produced some mixed feelings, but I’m sure we can all still come up with a best dungeon. What is the Best Dungeon in Tri Force Heroes?…

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…

Link took the ocarina and studied it in his hands. Running his hands over the cool texture he looked at the eager “face” of the Skull Kid as he had pulled a small flute out of his bag and was brandishing it excitedly. “Yay! Fairy boy, let’s play! Remember that song you taught me a long time ago? Let’s play that one!” Link tried hiding his uncertainty as he continued to go along with the awkward situation. “Alright, uh..” Link…

For centuries, many have looked upon the world and decided to display their view of it through art. Every fandom has people who create art for what they enjoy, and I know from experience that there are many talented Zelda fan artists out there. Now, I’m calling you to come, do whatever you may do as an artist, and participate in Zelda Informer’s newest original content series: Artists of Legend! Each week, I will give you a prompt that anyone…

Things get nostalgic with the next game in our tournament. Skyward Sword‘s battles rage on as Ancient Cistern currently leads the poll, but we’re approaching a more retro-feeling Zelda title today. A Link Between Worlds is in many ways a love letter to A Link to the Past and Zelda games of old, but in the same breath, its also a stepping stone toward the freer direction the series has decided to take. What is the Best Dungeon in A…
