Chibi Robo!: Zip Lash, a new platformer releasing for the 3DS, will support every single amiibo according to Nintendo. This obviously means that the Link, Princess Zelda, Sheik, Toon Link, and Ganondorf amiibo will be compatible with the game.

While any amiibo besides the Chibi-Robo amiibo won’t grant you any large bonus, it’s pretty nice to know that every amiibo in your collection can be used. Scanning an amiibo will unlock in-game coins, as well as give you a statue of Chibi-Robo performing the pose of that amiibo. However…

Throughout the Legend of Zelda series we meet many characters in the realm of Hyrule that touch our hearts, and others who set incite our rage. Although the main focus of the series itself is our protagonist Link, he meets many on his quest to save Hyrule who spark the fire of inspiration within our hearts…

Getting kidnapped is such a drag, especially if you’re not wearing a comfortable outfit. And when you’re finally free to make your getaway, long gowns are far from convenient, and just a pain to deal with. Face it ladies: impractical dresses just aren’t suited for the life of a princess. Fortunately Think Geek has a solution…

There are many connections between the various songs within the games of the Zelda franchise, but two in particular have a unique connection.  Although many fans are well-acquainted with the iconic Zelda’s Lullaby and the more recent Ballad of the Goddess, fewer are fully aware that the latter song uses the exact same notes as the former just played in reverse.  Admittedly, there is a good deal of added instrumentation and rhythmic/temporal variation in the Ballad of the Goddess, but the main melodies use the same notes…

Last year, we facilitated a very active debate about the best version of Link. With all the colorful responses we saw for that debate, we wish to examine another certain Triforce wielder, the one who acts as the namesake for the entire Zelda series. Princess Zelda no doubt serves an active role throughout the games, but some versions of this heroine are more defined than others. With the many different renditions of Zelda’s character we’ve seen, it’s now time to decide which one was the absolute best…

Skyloft is probably one of the best hub towns I’ve ever visited in any game. It’s a happy yet bustling community nestled atop a handful of boulders floating over the clouds, where players are free to mingle with the locals and explore the island’s countless secrets.

In many ways Skyloft is a beautifully crafted environment, but it is also home to abusive relationships, mishandled portrayals of human interactions, and some negative messages for players. There’s a lot of ground to cover here, but let’s get the most obvious bad signal Skyward Sword sends players out of the way first…

Obviously, rescuing Princess Zelda is your mandate in most Zelda games, with the exception of a few titles. The Zelda series was founded on this rescue mission, ever since its humble beginnings on the NES. Should you be rescuing the princess in Zelda U?

True to the title The Legend of Zelda, Princess Zelda has to be present in the game at some point, even if she is not a princess, like in Skyward Sword. Even still, there are endless missions that Link could be on in the land of Hyrule…

Got thousands of dollars just laying around unused? If so, eBay has quite the item up for grabs. For just $5,000, one lucky buyer can have a completely normal Zelda amiibo with no rare characteristics whatsoever. That’s right, nothing sets this figure apart from other Zelda amiibo. The average price range for one on eBay is between $10 and $20, according to sales data…

While Nintendo finally ended the primary debate regarding Sheik just this year, between Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros. For Wii and Nintendo 3DS, we can hardly forget the secretive member of the Sheikiah.  And although these games were both great for enjoying her return (and in HD, no less), we have yet to see her return in a main series entry. But is there good reason for the conspicuous absence of this character?

As well as we know how the match-up between Link and Ganon turns out (unless you happen to be in THAT part of the timeline), it’s rare for us to take a step back and create other battle scenarios between the three wielders of the Triforce.  And while a fight between Zelda and Ganon would be make more sense (and will likely be brought up soon), for today’s Daily Debate, we ponder the outcome of a skirmish involving the Hero and Heroine of the series….
