Hey Link. Listen. We Look Great.

That's Jina D doing an excellent Navi, if not in scale then at least in spirit. Link is her fiancée Devon, who should really be cosplaying as Jaime Lannister. » 3/31/15 7:57pm Yesterday 7:57pm

The Best, Weirdest Mario/Zelda Crossovers

Late last year, it was revealed that Link would become a racer in Mario Kart 8. But that wasn’t his first Mario rodeo. Nor was it the first time Zelda crossed over into the Mario series—far from it. » 3/31/15 12:00pm Yesterday 12:00pm

Redditor jessmeixing was commissioned by the creators of Royal Guards, a Zelda web series that's currently on IndieGoGo, to paint this piece of concept art of Hyrule Castle from Ocarina of Time.

Building Link's Hylian Shield, In Real Life

Look, nobody said Man At Arms had to make weapons all the time. If a shield can be as iconic as the sword swinging next to it, then it deserves its real-life dues too. » 3/23/15 8:30pm 3/23/15 8:30pm

People Aren't Waiting Around For Nintendo To Make A Female Link

Nintendo may or may not ever give us a woman version of Link from Legend of Zelda, but where there's a will, there's a way. Or a game jam. » 3/23/15 8:15pm 3/23/15 8:15pm

Majora's Mask Is A Game About Death

As someone who's not-so-quietly championed The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for years, I'm happy the game's been given new life on 3DS. Finally, everyone gets it! » 3/12/15 4:00pm 3/12/15 4:00pm

Zelda Stop-Motion Animation is All About The Clay Monsters

Here's a really cool claymation short by animator Johnny McHone, featuring Link and angry plasticine monsters. It totally looks like a Robot Chicken sketch with a little bit of Neverhood and Skyward Sword added. » 3/12/15 9:20am 3/12/15 9:20am

Short Zelda Movie Is Looking Pretty Good

For years now, a team called The Zelda Project have been working towards recreating as much of Ocarina of Time as they can, through both cosplay and film. We've seen their cosplay before, but they've finally got the cash together to make a start on the film part. » 3/05/15 7:00pm 3/05/15 7:00pm

Nintendo Explains Where Tingle Came From

Tingle, map-seller in The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask, is a man in his mid-30s who wears a green fairy suit. Presumed by some—incorrectly, it turns out—to be gay, he is one of Nintendo's most unusual characters. I recently asked Nintendo's top Zelda creator what Tingle's origins were. » 2/18/15 11:50am 2/18/15 11:50am

I'm Glad I Waited Fifteen Years To Play Majora's Mask

I first played The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask in a small, dark hotel room that offered rentals on all of the hottest N64 games, Expansion Pak and all. I don't remember where we were or even how old I was, but I do recall convincing my parents to let us rent Majora's Mask for 24 hours. » 2/17/15 1:00pm 2/17/15 1:00pm

How A Zelda Dungeon Is Made

Eiji Aonuma has overseen the development of many of the major Zelda games, from Majora's Mask to Wind Waker to Skyward Sword to A Link Between Worlds. So I figured he probably knows how to make a Zelda dungeon. Last week, I asked him. » 2/17/15 11:30am 2/17/15 11:30am

Forget Zelda, This 20-Inch Link Figure Is Worthy Of an Epic Hyrule Quest

It turns out the re-release of Majora's Mask for the Nintendo 3DS wasn't the biggest Legend of Zelda news this weekend because JAKKS Pacific has given Toyland an exclusive first look at the latest addition to its Big Figures Line: a 20-inch Link that's so detailed you can even see the texture of the fabric on his… » 2/14/15 8:53am 2/14/15 8:53am
