The Legend of Zelda

  1. This Live-Action Legend of Zelda Trailer Is Giving Us Feelings

    HEY. LISTEN.

    With this live-action Legend of Zelda show in the works at Netflix, the folks from Player Piano have decided to give Hyrule a try with their new trailer for a Zelda film. You can check out more of their work at The Zelda Project—they want to produce a longer fan film that will involve the Ocarina fight between Link and Ganondorf!

  2. PBS Game/Show Tackles the Racist Pitfalls That Can Go Along With NPCs of Color in Video Games

    Yeah, I have always been a little side-eye about the Gerudo.

    Jamin Warren brings up a lot of good points about how the player agency which lies at the heart of most games often results in dehumanized NPCs, which become doubly problematic when PCs are majority white and/if NPCs are predominantly brown. He also tackles the common scifi/fantasy trope of using inter-species conflict as a metaphor for inter-racial conflict, one that I've been mulling over myself for a while now.

  3. Excuse Me, Princess: Legend of Zelda TV Series in Development at Netflix

    Hey! Listen!

    Our days of Zelda fan films and our parents/acquaintances not knowing the difference between Link and Zelda are over! OK, both of those things are likely to persist forever, but Netflix really is working on a Zelda TV show!

  8. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess: An Artistic Showdown

    Becoming the brand.

    I’ve been on a Zelda kick lately. So to satiate my craving, I powered through Ocarina of Time 3D (wow, that water temple sure got streamlined), replayed Majora’s Mask, and finally picked up A Link Between Worlds. And this got me to thinking—Ocarina of Time’s value in the grand scheme of things is not so much as a self-contained game anymore.

  9. Review: Hyrule Warriors Unites the Zelda Kingdom in a Rupee-Happy Showdown

    Link is outnumbered in more ways than one.

    The Legend of Zelda has always been Link’s story. Sure, Ganon might be raising a dark army, and Zelda may be the magical princess, but it’s a boy’s journey. Only he can wield the Master Sword, yada, yada, yada. Hyrule Warriors feels less about Link and more about, well, whoever you want.

  10. HEY, LISTEN: It’s the Honest Trailer For The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    HEY, LISTEN. HEY, LISTEN. HEY, LISTEN. HEY, LISTEN.

    One of the best games for N64 (and arguably of all time), The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time still isn't without its flaws. You know what I'm talking about: Navi. But the Honest Trailer pokes some good fun at the rest of the Zelda franchise, too, and it's all in the spirit of laughs. I liked Mario 64 better, anyways.

  12. Nintendo Tweets 2014/15 Release Timeframe List With Wii U Zelda and Star Fox

    Get N or get out.

    Nintendo is getting aggressive about its release timetable to try to turn things around for the Wii U, and this newly-tweeted schedule for 2014 and 2015 says we'll have both a new Zelda and Star Fox by the end of the year—not to mention the huge list of Wii U games for the first half of 2015 on top of both Smash Bros. games coming out this year. That's certainly one way to turn around the idea that there's no reason to buy your company's console.

  13. Games for Girls? How About Games for Everyone?

    Gender-neutral games are too hard to animate.

    The portrayal and treatment of women in and around video games is a sore subject for a lot of us. It’s been talked about to death, and yet it still doesn’t seem like we’re making much progress. It’s a very polarizing but uniformly upsetting issue that lingers on in this otherwise great community like cat pee on an oriental rug.

  14. Hyrule Warriors Guidebook Shows Unused Character Designs For Female Link

    Hey! Hey! Listen!

    Nintendo's been surprisingly good with gender representation in the upcoming Wii U game Hyrule Warrior so far; the overwhelming majority of playable hero characters are women and girls from the Legend of Zelda franchise. But we could have had it all, if this art book is any indication. We could have had... Linkle.

  16. There Never Really Was a “Dark Link,” Link and the Zelda Series Are Just Racist

    It's dangerous to go alone. Someone might spread racist legends about you.

    Gaming has a big problem with gender, race, and white saviors. Maybe that's because Hyrule's historians got it all wrong, and there was never any such thing as Dark Link—the other Zelda characters are just horrible bigots. Here's the real story behind Link's xenophobia and a surprisingly accurate critique on the representation of minorities in a classic game series.

  19. Zelda Opens a Bottle of Whoop-Ass in Hyrule Warriors as the Game Adds Even More Women

    Your princess is not in another castle.

    We may have been disappointed that speculation about a female protagonist/playable character in the next main-series Zelda game turned out to be wrong, but Hyrule Warriors is really picking up the slack in that department with more women than you can shake a deku stick at. The latest Japanese character trailer for the game once again begs the question, "Does she just let Link save her to give his self-esteem a boost?"
