The Legend of Zelda

At Japan Expo in France, The Art of Legend of Zelda Series Masterclass was held with series producer Eiji Aonuma, art director Satoru Takizawa, and illustrator Yusuke Nakano. Thanks to Nintendo UK, the full event is now online with English subtitles. Check it out below.

Nintendo of France has uploaded a video of the full Master Class – The Art of the Legend of Zelda Series panel from Japan Expo to Youtube. Eiji Aonuma (producer), Eiji Nakano (illustrator) and Satoru Takizawa (art director) talked about what it was like creating the art of Breath of the Wild and several other Zelda games. Note that the panel was held in French (and Japanese), so you’ll have to understand either of those two languages to get the full experience out of this.

Nintendo has been sharing special Zelda art pieces to promote the masterclass held by series producer Eiji Aonuma and other developers at Japan Expo. Following the event of the session, the final piece of art was published online. You can view it above, and look at the other two pieces of art here and here.


At the Zelda Masterclass panel at Japan Expo in Paris, it was revealed that more Zelda behind-the-scenes books will be making their way to the West.

First up is Hyrule Encyclopedia, which is an extensive visual guide to the world of The Legend of Zelda, containing tons of art and information about the various items, enemies, locations etc across the series. It is currently set to be released in September in France, though we’d be surprised if it wasn’t released at the same time in other countries and languages.

Nintendo published another piece of new Zelda art just in time for Japan Expo 2017. Series producer Eiji Aonuma and other developers will be hosting a special masterclass at the French expo this week.

As for the art, it’s based on Eugène Delacroix’s “La Liberté guidant le peuple”. That’s an artwork at the Louvre, in case you were unaware.


Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma will be hosting a special masterclass session at Japan Expo 2017 later this week. Aonuma will be joined by Breath of the Wild art director Satoru Takizawa and illustrator Yusuke Nakano at the event which will cover the franchise’s art.

In celebration of the masterclass, a new piece of art has been published online. Take a look at the image above.

“The Art of The Legend of Zelda Series” masterclass will be held on Friday. It will be hosted between 12:30 PM and 1:15 PM local time.


It’s not all leaks coming out of the Japan Expo Twitter account today. The account also confirmed that The Legend of Zelda mastermind Eiji Aonuma will hold a “The Art of The Legend of Zelda Series” masterclass at the convention in Paris in July.

Aonuma won’t be the first big Nintendo developer to appear at Japan Expo. Last year, Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda was there to talk about Pokemon and in 2015, Shigeru Miyamoto himself also held a masterclass there.


Nintendo has been in the mobile game market for a while now and has released several games, with more on the way. According to the Wall Street Journal, one of Nintendo’s next mobile games will be one based on The Legend of Zelda. Supposedly, “people familiar with the matter” said that a Zelda mobile game would be released sometime after the Animal Crossing mobile game, which is apparently being released in the latter half of 2017, although the release timing and release order could still change. Neither Nintendo nor DeNA commented on the matter.

That’s not all, though – according to the Wall Street Journal, The Pokemon Company is planning to release a new Pokemon Trading Card Game app on mobile devices. This is peculiar since a Pokemon TCG app already exists and can be played on mobile games – Pokemon TCG Online has been around for a while and is still supported to this day.

As always, takes rumors like this with a grain of salt. While the WSJ is usually fairly reliable when it comes to their sources and a Zelda mobile game isn’t exactly a far-fetched idea, this is far from an official confirmation. Thankfully, E3 is right around the corner, so we might hear more about either of these rumored games in a couple of weeks.

Defenders of the Triforce has been running in North America since the start of the year. In Europe, it will finally debut next month.

Fans in Barcelona can partake in Defenders of the Triforce on July 2. Those in London are up next, with the event being held between July 14 and July 16. It’s also planned for Paris between July 6 and July 9. We should point out that Defenders of the Triforce is coming to Cologne as well, though no date has been set.

We’ve included Defenders of the Triforce’s promo below. You can also access the official website here.

At GDC last month, Nintendo unveiled a special 2D prototype created for Zelda: Breath of the Wild inspired by the series’ very first entry. One fan has now recreated it, allowing players to cut down trees, harvest food, shoot arrows, use physics, and more.

Breath of the NES can be found itchio here. You can also view a trailer below.

One reason why we tend to shy away from posting about fan-made games is due to Nintendo often handing out cease and desists notices. Creator Winter Drake says he’ll work on the project for as long as possible. If Nintendo gets in touch, he will “continue development with my own original characters.”
