Relationships In Zelda

February 4, 2024 by Leila

It’s that time of year: the time of love, romance, and (eventually) discounted chocolate. Some love it, some hate it, some couldn’t care less; we all feel some sort of way about Valentine’s Day. 

In that same vein, it could be said we feel some way about the way love and relationships are depicted in The Legend of Zelda series.

The Zelda games have had their fair share of strange and interesting quests: from creating a marching line of cuccos, to sending love letters back and forth between a hylian and a moblin. Link can’t help but to find himself in odd situations, such as making soup with a yeti or giving a “helping hand” to several ghost hands in toilets (yes, several).

Quite a few Legend of Zelda titles boast some kind of frozen location, ranging from dungeons of ice to eerie and sometimes horror-inducing hideouts like the Snowpeak Ruins in Twilight Princess. I’m not personally all that familiar with snow and ice since I live in a warm climate, but if I had to pick one of these chilly spots for a vacation, I’d definitely choose the Snowfield Stable from Tears of the Kingdom as my number one destination.

Hyrule’s True Courage and Meaning of Home

How Tears of the Kingdom taught me about true courage and the true meaning of home

November 2, 2023 by TaylorPlayz

The Zelda game series holds an extremely special place in my heart. This is true for most of the games themselves, but also the various lessons that we take from the series. The Legend of Zelda series makes me thankful for the true courage I had to face real life challenges and ultimately allowed me to find my true meaning of home.

Ah, autumn! It is time to get your candles out, close the curtains and wrap the blanket around your shoulders. The leaves are turning yellow and orange, the temperature’s getting colder and sun sets earlier day by day. But darker evening gives our imagination more ideas to work with; what was that noise, did someone knock my window, did that tree just move?

With The Legend of Zelda series being over 35 years old now, our hero Link has traveled through Hyrule - and even other lands! His first few adventures were solo - lonely dangerous explorations of countryside fallen to the overtaking of the Demon King, Ganon.  Through Hyrule’s Overworld, transformed as a rabbit in the Dark World, were often his solo adventures. We don’t even see NPCs until his second adventure - the RPG-esque Zelda II: Adventure of Link...

The Legend of Zelda game series has held fans in a steadfast grip since the very day it began, captivating them in the land of Hyrule. The franchise is full of fully-fledged characters, with even side characters sporting their own unique personality and backstory. But what really adds an additional layer of depth to the franchise is the original characters (OCs) that are created within the thriving fan community. It is through this blog that we’ll take a closer look at the significance and benefits OCs bring to the community and their creators.

Where would I take a vacation if I could transport myself to a location from the beloved Legend of Zelda series? I've always had one specific place I'd prefer to go to: Great Bay from Majora's Mask. After 23 years, the release of 14 mainline games since Majora's Mask, even after experiencing the beauty of locations in Breath of the Wild, this answer has never changed.

It was the summer of 2000, and I was nine years old —though if you’d asked, I would have insisted I was “almost ten,” ready to free myself from the constraints of my singular digit prison. I would be all grown up in September, after all. I’d read not two, but three 5th grade level books already that summer and I was eager to tell that to anyone who listened. I was practically an adult —I just hadn’t discovered the Master Sword yet, and I might always be waiting for my fairy.

Miyamoto and his team have succeeded time and time again in creating a world to immerse us in. Every Zelda game I have played in the past has made me feel like I was in a new world. There is always an art behind their world-building and how the information, locations, and characters are presented to us. It takes immense skill to not only create a game, but to create an adventure.

Turning on a console and starting up any 'Legend of Zelda' game is like coming home after a long day. They're comfortable, each their own special world that I can step into whenever I need a break from messy, complicated, real life. My goals there are simple: Grow stronger, help people, defeat evil.

Breath of the Wild redefined what a Zelda game could be. The green tunic was shed, the characters could speak and the world was vast. It won over fans instantly and it even broke the record for the best-selling Zelda game of all time. Now we are only weeks away from Breath of the Wild’s sequel.
