In Breath of the Wild, players are very quickly given the narrative of the story. 10,000 years ago, we know that the princess and the hero succeeded in stopping the Calamity from destroying Hyrule with the aid of the Guardians and the Divine Beasts. We also know that after 10,000 years, the Calamity struck again and took over Hyrule because of the events that took place that led to Link’s 100 year slumber. The question for today is, had Zelda…

It’s no secret that the Zelda series has been home to some of the most iconic video game songs of all time. For over 30 years, the music of The Legend of Zelda has set the standard for compositions that can simultaneously get stuck in a player’s head, set the proper mood, and allow for hundreds of different remixes and reinterpretations. But even with a bar set that high, even with many tracks sitting on the most positive side of…

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…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke many traditional Zelda conventions – it offered numerous weapons to choose from, different armor that could be crafted and upgraded, dungeons that could be completed in any order the player sought fit, and the ability to jump and climb just to name a few. However, one thing Breath of the Wild did differently which really stood out was getting rid of Link’s traditional green tunic and hat in favor of the…

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…

Since preorders for the SNES Classic were cancelled earlier this year, customers have wondered when they would be able to start preordering the system again. Nintendo has released an official timeline for when to expect the SNES Classic to be both available for preorder and available in stores. Preorders will open later this month, and the console itself will be available on September 29th. For those who are worried about stock running low, Nintendo says that it will have units…

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…
