The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom director Hidemaro Fujibayashi and series producer Eiji Aonuma have shared their thoughts on which Link they believe is the stinkiest.
If you’re wondering why on earth anyone would bother to ask the developers that question, this has become a thing of sorts of TicTok. Wired decided to get to the bottom of things by asking Fujibayashi and Aonuma for their thoughts directly.

In the words of Shigeru Miyamoto, Dr. Mario is a character that shouldn’t be trusted.

Fan turns Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s Hyrule into Mario Kart 8 track
A new fan-made Mario Kart 8 track is turning heads because of how well it adapts the world of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time into a raceway. It’s based on Nintendo’s 3DS remake of the N64 classic rather than the 1998 original.
RiazorMC shared the creation on YouTube, which features different Hyrule sections for each of its laps. In the first section, you start off in Kokiri Forest before moving to Hyrule Field and Gerudo’s Fortress. The second lap is the journey to Lake Hylia. Finally, in the third lap, there’s a quick stop in Kakariko Village and then ultimately Death Mountain. Fans seem to agree that the course could be better at directing you where to go, but otherwise is impressive.

The CSUF Police Department did believe the email to contain “a perceived vague threat”. Because of this, there’ll be more safety measures in place today at the campus “out of an abundance of caution”.
