Hey, folks! Boy, we’ve been gone a while, but we’re back today with something interesting to report on! If you’ve ever wondered how much the great Hyrule Castle would cost in real money (because you’ve wondered that before, right? RIGHT??), the folks at Movoto Blog (a blog focusing on real estate– of all things!) have weighed the information and have determined the most likely price of Hyrule Castle. Disregarding the fact that they didn’t account for the Rupee/US Dollar exchange rate, their estimates are worth a look if you’re in the market for a fictitious castle of your own! Heh heh. Fictitious real estate. A bit of an oxymoron, no? Anyway, click “read more” for the scoop!
Hey, guys! Know what’s cool? Jumping on the games journalism bandwagon! And that’s just what we’re going to do today! As I’m sure you’ve heard before if you frequent any of our affiliate sites, Zelda series creator Shigeru Miyamoto was recently interviewed by ABC about his game designing forays, the newly released Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and other general interview-y questions. This interview is a follow-up to a slightly older interview, in which Mr. Miyamoto speaks of gaming culture and his memories developing previously released video games. The interviews are meaty, and have plenty of interesting tidbits about Miyamoto’s career, so any Miyamoto enthusiasts (myself included) would be daft not to view them! I highly recommend viewing the original interviews over at ABC, but if you’re strapped for time, we’ve already nailed down the important Zelda-related bits, for your viewing pleasure. Hit “read more” for all the juicy quotes!
Recently, on our affiliate Zelda Informer posted a guest-written article submitted by Tom-Olav Hundstad on Dark Link, a miniboss that he considers to be “the conclusively best miniboss of the series.” Says Hundstad:
“Dark Link is easily one of the most iconic enemies of Ocarina of Time, probably leaving a bigger impact on players than Morpha, the actual boss of the dungeon in question, did. This is odd when you consider that Dark Link’s fight was ridiculously simple, stripped of all build-up and with no designated weak spot to hit for massive damage. People have found various ways for how to best tackle the dark menace over the years, but upon encountering him you’re given no guidelines or helpful pointers that tell you what to do. For some players, myself included, it was a fight that yanked me out of a mindless state of boredom (the Water Temple will do that to most people) and left me almost shaking in my boots as I died for the first time since, well, ever.”
Hello, Zelda and Nintendo fans alike!

We’ve seen some pretty crazy things adapted into broadway musicals: Harry Potter, Legally Blonde, and that one Kevin Bacon film whose name currently escapes me (something about loose feet), but we’ve yet to see a broadway adaptation of an entry to the Zelda series…

There are dangers hidden in caves that every adventurer fears. Stories have been told of them, but few have ever seen them in person– and lived to tell the tale, that is. The horrifying things dwelling in these caves can utterly destroy the minds of even the strongest adventurers as quick as a flash. Gaze below on these very creations of power immense enough to permanently cripple any unfortunate enough to cross their path. Hit “read more” to discover these beasts, but be warned– it’s not for the faint of heart.
Hello, Zelda Eternity readers! In the second installment of our official art feature of no particular namesake, we’ll be viewing a very beautiful piece of artwork from Ocarina of Time, and more recently its remake, Ocarina of Time 3D. This image depicts Link and Sheik together inside of the Ice Cavern while the ceiling above glistens. Hit “read more” for my thoughts, and more from this feature!
Does anyone remember HyruleCraft? It’s a project that’s progressed far in their 1:1 scale build of Ocarina of Time in Minecraft. Whether you like Minecraft or not, you can really appreciate how much effort and time they’ve put in to do this in honor of Ocarina of Time and the Zelda series itself. Enjoy the video!
