Episode Notes

Thirty-five years ago, an elf in a green tunic picked up a sword and set off into a dangerous world. Today, The Legend of Zelda is one of gaming’s most famous franchises; its influence arguably greater than ever thanks to the success of Breath of the Wild and the Nintendo Switch.

Kat and Nadia recount the early days of the series, their evolving perspectives on Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess and much more as they trace Zelda’s evolving history. Then they’re joined by Nintendo Life’s Jon Cartwright, who shares his own perspective as a younger fan of the series while helping Kat and Nadia pick the best Link, the most underrated game in the series and much more!
