There’s a reason Breath of the Wild is played in German. It’s just a heck of a lot faster. Speedruns use different languages and versions to cut down on time. Here’s how that works for The Legend of Zelda.
First 4 Figures' newly-announced Link on the Crimson Loftwing statue is a two-foot-tall tribute to the joy of taking to the skies in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Just try not to make eye contact.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was, by most accounts, a very good game. It was also, by most accounts, excruciating until you could actually play it.
Some people play Skyrim for the big open world, or the variety of interesting quests. The guy who makes Zelda, though? He plays Skyrim because it starts with the same three letters as Skyward Sword.
Holy crap. Kotaku reader Will Turnbow and his wife made this cake for their daughter's tenth birthday, and I think it's no exaggeration to say this is the coolest thing you'll see today.
I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that lately, "Fi's Theme" from Skyward Sword has sort of become my favorite piece of Zelda music. So, I very much enjoyed this vocal performance from Laura Shigihara.
Bet he's dealing with Mothula in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I can see it on his angry, tortured face. (We've all been there!)
Normally comedy team Mega64 deploys just one of its members into public to act as a video game character. For The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword they sent two: one to be Link, the other to control Link.

Some folks loved the latest Legend of Zelda game but weren't fond of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Others turned up their noses at Skyward Sword but embraced Bethesda's latest wholeheartedly. Somehow commenter Sloopydrew found himself disappointed with both games. In today's Speak Up on Kotaku we try to determine what…

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is perhaps the most compelling argument yet for "Video Game as Concert Piece." As a game, it is a smartly designed interlocking series of puzzles, an ever-more-complex world filled with hidden secrets and challenging combat that unfolds with a uniquely Zelda-y sense of joyous…

Has Nintendo finally release a console installment of The Legend of Zelda series that critics don't immediately fall in love with? Look at that chart. Does that look like hate to you? No sir and / or ma'am, that's love right there.
