When I first heard that there was a Zelda escape room coming to the United States, I imagined a labyrinth of elaborate puzzles, growing more challenging and complicated with each subsequent chamber.

First announced back in February, Nintendo has just detailed what exactly we’ll be getting with the first batch of DLC that’s being offered for Breath of the Wild in the Summer. From new armour to a fancy “smart map”, it all sounds pretty great.
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.
The Nintendo Switch is a fascinating new game console built around a novel and well-executed central idea. It also has plenty of problems that will doubtless be improved upon in a future version. Nintendo is yet again trying something new, and here we are to take the plunge alongside them.
We are just a few weeks away from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which means it is now time to rank all the Zelda games.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be out on March 3, Nintendo just announced at its big Switch release show, making it a launch title for the new console. Nintendo also showed off a big trailer for the game that looked shit hot.

No matter which candidate wins the election today, there are going to be people disappointed in the outcome. So why put yourself through all the stress of watching election coverage, when you can instead spend the rest of the day watching 78,175 dominoes fall in a tribute to the Legend of Zelda?
The next Zelda game isn’t out yet, but eagle-eyed players are already finding all sorts of cool easter eggs.
First revealed back in 2014, the Analogue Nt remains one of the best ways to play classic NES games on a modern TV. And to celebrate the 30th anniversary of one of the most popular Nintendo franchises of all time, The Legend of Zelda, you can now get a gold-plated Analogue Nt to match your gold cartridges.
On February 21, 1986, Japan got its first taste of the magical land of Hyrule, though not on the famous gold cartridge Western gamers are familiar with.
Did you know that Pols, the rabbit-looking things in the original Legend of Zelda, are meant to be destroyed not with arrows but by talking into a microphone? And that the Japanese version of the Zelda board game was way better than the North American one?
The Nintendo 64 might not have had the massive library of games like the PlayStation did, but it made up for it with quality over quantity. Do you ever really need anything more than GoldenEye and Ocarina of Time? No. And with this N64 emulator on your smartwatch, those games will always be in easy reach.
You might suspect that The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is skippable, an inessential spinoff that is more time-killer than legendary adventure. You would be... correct.
Which is your favorite fairy from The Legend of Zelda franchise? Our old friend MasterOfHyrule has compiled a video featuring each and every—what the hell is that thing?
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…
According to The Wall Street Journal, Netflix and Nintendo are developing a Legend of Zelda series that will be like "Game of Thrones for a family audience".
