Amid rumours of a Skyward Sword release for Switch, Nintendo has instead asked Zelda fans to forget the polarizing game ever existed.
For as long as we can remember, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been heralded as not only the best Zelda game, but one of the greatest games of all time. In recent years however, more and more fans have declared their favour for the classic game’s unique sequel, Majora’s Mask. Even Nintendo has taken notice of this, with numerous nods to it in games like Link Between Worlds and Super Smash Bros. Wii U, eventually leading to a full remake on the 3DS. It seems Majora’s Mask is quickly becoming the darling of the series, with countless remarks on how it’s a darker, more mature approach to Zelda. So does Majora’s Mask really surpass Ocarina of Time in greatness?
With The Legend of Zelda on the mind after the new Netflix rumours, I couldn’t help reminiscing on the franchise and came to the conclusion of this simple Top 10 for my favourite series. Well, not entirely simple, pretty specific rules for this list I know, but I decided it was a bit unfair to compare the top down Zelda bosses with the ones from the 3D installments, so maybe that will be a topic for another time. Not to mention, between a score of truly climactic moments with Ganondorf throughout the series, I didn’t want to bog down this list with the same character. So without further ado, these are the 10 3D bosses not named Ganondorf have that stuck with me the most throughout my years of playing The Legend of Zelda.
It has recently been reported that Netflix is in early development of a live-action Legend of Zelda series. Apparently described as “Game of Thrones for a family audience“, it’s rumoured that they are now seeking writers while working closely with Nintendo.
The Wii U is an enigma, certainly unlike any Nintendo console to come before it. Upon its initial announcement and indeed to this day, many are still confused as to what exactly this system aims to be. Here, two editors and long-time Nintendo fans give their opposing views on the console and its foreseeable future in a good ol’ fashion versus!
You remember it like it was yesterday – sitting in front of your box tv, controller in hand, beginning your epic journey in The Legend of Zelda.
