I have made a triumphant return to the podcast after a one week hiatus to talk about the lasting legacy of the Wii U and why I am so frustrated with Nintendo's handling (or lack of handling) the NX information train. Our usual cohost Alfred is in the house as well as we are also joined by a brand new staff member at Zelda Informer, Daniel, along with Macintyre from Macintyre Productions.
This week I take my first "break" from the podcast as Alfred takes the reigns with an absolutely stellar cast, including our Managing Editor Darrin. The special guests this week include NintenDaan and Macintyre Productions. We do not have a video version this week due to me taking a week off, but our audio version is fully loaded and edited in full by Alfred (for those unaware, I typically handle all the editing for all versions of the podcast).
We're back talking about NX rumors, but also possibly the most important conversation we've ever had about Zelda CD-i (to be fair, we don't really talk about that trilogy of games much in the first place). Why do we talk about them this week? Well, Nintendo could have shut those bad boys down if they wanted to. Of course, the previous week didn't go without an NX rumor or two.
This week on the ZI Podcast we dive deep into all of your burning topic suggestions. We had a huge swath of topic ideas from all over our fan base and we wanted to make sure we covered as many of them as we could. However, one particular topic about dungeons in Breath of the Wild ended up spinning off into one of the most interesting discussions we've ever had on the podcast about that game... how story will be presented in a world through a method few if any games have ever even attempted to do before.
This week's audio podcast is back in the spotlight, as issues with our video version's audio has lead to a return to our audio version taking front and center. Of course, you can still watch our video version - just don't be surprised when the audio one is more in sync and contains an extra 10 minutes of content. Yeah, that's exactly why this is the version being featured this week!
This week we cover some rather series topics, including some much beloved anniversaries for both Zelda and Metroid, Nintendo's take down of fan projects, and a slew of fan questions pertaining to some interesting Zelda lore. We have a jam packed podcast this week despite the fact that it's just the hosts this week. No special guests, no other staff members from Zelda Informer, this week is all Alfred and Nate going head to head debating about this week's greatest news.
On this week's episode of the Zelda Informer Podcast we discuss the premise for Breath of the Wild, the role art style plays in the series, and offer speculation on where exactly the Zelda series is heading after Breath of the Wild. We are joined this week by your usual hosts and a special guest, the hype man himself, HMK.
This week on the Zelda Informer Podcast, Alfred makes a triumphant return to his co-hosting duties as our resident comic artist, Trey, and super fan Mason make appearances to discuss some unexpected NX leaks. With the NX leaks taking up a majority of the first half of the podcast, I wanted to reminded everyone of a rather amazing (and sad) story a fan shared with us and allowed us to share with all of you about how Nintendo is keeping a lost brother with someone special while playing Breath of the Wild.
