The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has received quite a bit of attention ever since its release, ranging from its phenomenal reviews to theories. It’s success has led to be released as a standalone game, as part of the Special Edition, part of the Master Edition, and, most recently, part of the Explorer’s Edition, with the Explorer’s Edition including the game (DLC not included), an explorer’s guide, and a map of Hyrule as well as the Great Plateau….

Amazing Zelda fan art is always appreciated here at Zelda Informer, no matter where it comes from. Big or small, colorful or not, we like when people show appreciation for the franchise through their handcrafted work. The fan art we’re checking out today comes from the most unlikely of sources, a fast-food chain restaurant. For those who don’t know, Arby’s is a fast-food establishment usually known for their sandwiches, but that hasn’t been the case for the past couple of…

Development of Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora’s Mask 3D, and Tri Force Heroes was overseen by Japanese developer Grezzo, the same team behind the 3DS RPG Ever Oasis. It would seem that the developer is recruiting staff for a brand new project, recently placing an “emergency recruitment” notice on their website.

But in the meantime, you can traipse around…

They’ve also made this announcement in Japan and even shared a few pages that can be found in the Japanese edition of the guide.
