Here’s to strong friendships and new discoveries in 2020!
Also… Nintendo, I do not ask for much, but please give these two characters their own game!
Before Link wakes up and begins his journey in Breath of the Wild, Zelda spends one hundred years in Hyrule Castle with Calamity Ganon. Seriously, what were they doing for all that time?
For me, there have always been two major mysteries at the heart of Twilight Princess. First, why does Ganondorf feel the need to possess Princess Zelda at the end of the game? Second, how does he manage to put his hair up in such an elaborate style? When these two questions are viewed side by side, the answer to both becomes obvious.
I’m really interested in the relationship between Ganondorf and Tetra in The Wind Waker. While Link’s journey is full of light and laughter and discovery and growth, both Tetra and Ganondorf are associated with some fairly dark themes. They’re also literally in the dark in Hyrule Castle, which has lain dormant for centuries under the Great Sea. The Gothic creepiness of this scenario is fascinating, and I love how both Tetra and Ganondorf are painfully human even as they represent mythical forces that are much larger than themselves.
