Breath of the Wild remains to be a popular subject in the minds and hearts of Zelda fans. It has to be the biggest and most advanced title yet,  but some might think that it lacks that old “8-bit charm” that games used to have. This is a problem easily solved thanks to Loeder, a YouTube music artist who specializes in 8-bit renditions of popular game music. This time around, Loeder bring us a nice rendition of the Hateno Village theme….

The main theme from Breath of the Wild is an awesome melody that will probably give Zelda players the chills for many years to come. Making its debut in the game’s official trailer last year in June, the theme really set the tone for Breath of the Wild and gave the game its sense of adventure and openness. Although the original version is quite amazing, a group of Zelda-loving musicians recently came together and made their own cover of this memorable song. The group…

Game design guru Marc Brown tackles A Link Between Worlds‘s dungeon set up in a new segment of his video series Boss Keys. Marc first analyzes the overworld of A Link Between Worlds before focusing on the dungeons, noting that the overworld and dungeon routes are much more open than in previous Zelda entries. While many praised the game’s open design, Marc mentions that this openess actually makes the dungeon design suffer. He points out that items being available for rent actually takes the item, and…

Commonwealth Realm has recently released an in-depth analysis of what happened to the Zora throughout the entirety of the Zelda timeline. They include some theories about what likely happened between games where there has yet to be an official explanation of what happened to the Zora during those times. Their video provides everything one needs to become familiar with the iconic aquatic characters. Check out the video for yourselves, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

For nearly 20 years, OverClocked ReMix has been home to some of the internet’s best video game remixes and fan arrangements. And while almost every game series under the sun has found itself represented by this long-standing community, The Legend of Zelda holds a special place among the site’s musicians and listeners. A top-notch Zelda remix was how I first discovered the site in fact. Earlier this month OC ReMix released Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed as…

I love it when fans not only cover music from the Zelda series, but also come up with lyrics to add to the experience of listening to your favorite Zelda songs. Musicians Jillian Aversa and Erutan have done just that by providing an ethereal experience and more with this stunning cover of the title theme to Ocarina of Time. The lyrics are very calming. Rather than telling the story of Link and Zelda, it feels to me more about the story of…

The Lost Woods from Ocarina of Time served as a great challenge to those with a listening ear. The music is especially memorable, as the player chases the sound of it to meet with Saria, and later returns through the same path to enter the Forest Temple. The theme is also often remixed into various genres, and FalkKonE over on YouTube has recently remixed it into a symphonic metal rendition. It keeps the classic melody from the game and adds some power behind the…

Video Game Story Time recently released a video that reimagines the story of the Zelda series. The video tells the classic tale with the use of a narrator and pictures that mimic the style of a child’s storybook. The re-imagining shifts the story’s focus away from Link rescuing Princess Zelda to Princess Zelda saving her kingdom. The character of Zelda is wise and kind, while Link becomes a humble youth who aids the princess in her mission. As for Ganon, he is…

The creators at Adafruit Industries are known for producing very impressive 3D-printed models, adding motion and LEDs to give them extra flare. Their latest project takes a stab at creating a Guardian from Breath of the Wild, with LED lights in the body, a blinking LED for the eye, and “searching” motion in the head. They documented the building process in a short video, so really techy fans with the right equipment can try to make their very own! I’ll…
