The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo and Koei Tecmo came together for the first Hyrule Warriors, a spin-off of the Zelda series, back in 2014. They then collaborated on the just-released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Now that we’ve seen two of these games, some fans might be wondering if Hyrule Warriors could be its own dedicated spin-off series.

IGN recently spoke with Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma as well as Age of Calamity producer Yosuke Hayashi, and asked whether Nintendo is considering making this its own standalone series to go alongside mainline Zelda games. The two developers said in response:

In the past, rumors have sprung up regarding a possible The Legend of Zelda show from Netflix. Although nothing has come to fruition thus far, WGTC claims that such a project is indeed happening. The site further adds that “a movie and a TV show are both being discussed and furthermore, Netflix is eyeing Tom Holland to play the lead role of Link.”

We do have to caution, as usual, that nothing is confirmed at this time. WGTC does have a bit of a track record having shared accurate information about other films, though there have been no official announcements.

Super Mario Bros. is known for having a “Minus World”. It’s essentially a glitch that lets players access a depository intended for data that exists outside of the main path.

Decades after its original release, one fan has discovered something similar in The Legend of Zelda. After spending a few hours with the game’s code to remove a particular barrier originally designed to keep players in bounds, YouTuber SKELUX was able to get into the bottom half of the world without the game restarting.
