Immortal Childhood

Many of you viewers will be familiar with the article called "The Message of Majora’s Mask" by Dan Merrill; more commonly known as Hylian Dan. Years after release, it is still one of our most actively viewed pages. Unfortunately, we also know that many of our viewers aren’t aware of this piece and other works by Dan. Well, we’re happy to provide you with another one of his fantastic pieces: "Immortal Childhood". If you’ve read many of my articles, this is a piece that I refer to a lot. This piece was originally posted over at Zelda Universe on June 14, 2009, so thanks very much to our friends over there, and to Dan, for allowing us to share this article with our viewers – especially those who haven’t seen it at Zelda Universe, where you will also find more of Dan’s work. So please enjoy what many call the best Zelda article written to date….

Skyward Sword Enemy of the Week #5: Big Blin

Okay, so admittedly we don’t know whether the enemy above is actually a Big Blin or a Moblin or some new goblin-type enemy, but given its appearance along with the fact that the Spirit Tracks development team has come on board for the last stretch of Skyward Sword’s creation, I think this guy probably was at least somewhat inspired by the newer enemy. Its inclusion represents what I find to be one of the most intriguing things about this game’s development – the contributions of both the console and handheld Zelda teams. Jump inside for more….

A Link to the Past Walkthrough Chapter 9, Over the River and Through the Woods

Chapter 9 of our A Link to the Past walkthrough will take you into one of the most infamous dungeons in the Zelda series: Skull Woods.

Could this be a taste of what the blend of dungeons and fields in Skyward Sword is going to be like? Don’t forget to show our walkthroughs some love heading into the release of Ocarina of Time 3D so we can kick off its launch with a bang! If you’re looking for previous chapters, check the update history after the jump or look on the walkthrough contents page….

Eyes in the Zelda Series

Hey there guys! Well it’s been a while since I’ve done a non-mailbag discussion video, hasn’t it? Well I’ve finally done another one, for real! Haha. So the topic of this one is Eyes in the Zelda Series (well you can see that from the title, of course). What does that mean, though? Well I’ll […]

Arguably the Best Adventure of Link Remix Ever

Those that read fully every post and article I write here at Zelda Informer know that I truly love The Adventure of Link. I think it’s one of the better games in the entire series. As controversial as that stance may seem, I do truly enjoy the game throughly. So, instead of making another small mention of it in some unrelated post why not just jump to the point? This remix is both a "remix" and a "remastering" of melodies from The Adventure of Link. It’s so well done I still have goosebumps on my arm after listening to it. Thanks goes out to AShadowLink for the submission….

Rumor: Nintendo Plans to Scale Back Initial Ocarina of Time 3D Shipments

This latest rumor has nothing to do with Project Café, but you might want to listen up nonetheless. Sounds like trouble in paradise over at Nintendo: after the 3DS failed to meet sales expectations, Nintendo is going to be holding back on initial Ocarina of Time 3D shipments. This means that the game will likely be in pretty low supply, at least at first. One has to wonder if there are other factors playing into the decision, such as Nintendo perhaps realizing that yet another Ocarina of Time re-release might not be as commercially successful as it sounds, but it makes poor little me kind of worried that pre-orders might run out before I can finish saving to pick this up along with a 3DS come June.

Super Mario World Tribute by a One-Man Bluegrass Band

God, I love Super Mario World – and hearing one of the gems of its soundtrack being played with live instruments always warms my heart. Sentimentality aside, yeah, I’m a sucker for the game music of this era (imagine my excitement when I found out this song got a retreatment in Super Mario Galaxy 2), so yeah, this was an obligatory post. Viva la Mario World! Kind of makes me curious how the music in Super Mario 3D will turn out……
