Zelda: Breath of the Wild speedrunner completes the game's dungeons using his feet

Get to steppin'

Nearly 4 years after The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild released, fans are still finding unique ways to enjoy the game. Some players mod the title to create all-new experiences, while others like to tackle the self-imposed challenges. Case in point, the interesting set of rules speedrunner Joedun game himself.

Instead of using his hands to play through the game, Joedun decided to attempt Breath of the Wild's dungeons using his feet. That includes the Ganon battle as well, and believe it or not, Joedun pulled it off. The fun took roughly 8 hours, and you can see the full thing from start to finish below.

Zelda partner studio Grezzo hiring staff for a “medieval” and “stylish” project

What's Grezzo up to?

While Grezzo might not be a name a lot of Nintendo fans know, there's no doubt those fans have enjoyed some of the works of Grezzo. Nintendo has worked with the company on a few Zelda games over the years, including the Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Now that company is hiring for a new project, and the listing details are raising a few eyebrows.

In particular, it's the listings for effects designer and one UI designer that are most interesting. The listings make mention of a game that will be “medieval” and “stylish,” but not photorealistic. Now obviously, these kind of descriptors fit with The Legend of Zelda series quite nicely, but it could be something else altogether.

We'll just have to keep tabs on the listings moving forward to see if any other details can be gleaned. Certainly exciting news, though!

Fresh trademarks for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Skyward Sword spotted

What are you up to, Nintendo?

Earlier this week, a new trademark for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass surfaced. This led fans to wondering if Nintendo is putting together some sort of Legend of Zelda 35th anniversary collection of games. Today we get even more evidence of something like that.

One trademark update for a Zelda game is one thing, but a group of Zelda games getting trademark refreshes at the same time is awfully suspicious. Aussie trademarks for Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Skyward Sword have all been tracked down as well. With four Zelda games getting trademark activity all around the same time, it sure does seem like Nintendo has something up their sleeve.

New trademark spotted for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

I can hear Linebeck's theme now...

Many fans have been wondering if Nintendo is going to do some sort of special Legend of Zelda package for the franchise's 35th anniversary. A new trademark for a classic Zelda game might be pointing in that direction.

A new trademark for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass has just popped up in Australia. The game originally released for the DS back in 2007, and then it later made its way to the Wii U Virtual Console. Could we be seeing it pop up yet again? This trademark listing could be for simple protection purposes, but it could also indicate a re-release of some form. We'll keep an eye out for more details.

Nintendo pamphlet confirms Link and Zelda are "deep within the caverns beneath Hyrule Castle" in Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 (UPDATE)

What lies beneath...

UPDATE - Unfortunately, this isn't new and doesn't come from Nintendo. This was originally from GamesRadar in 2019. You can find the original post below.

_________________________________________________

We've only had one teaser video for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 so far, but that's been enough to fuel speculation on the game ever since. Fans are looking to glean any tidbit of info possible, and a new Nintendo marketing pamphlet gives us the tiniest of morsel to feed on. You can read the blurb from the pamphlet below.

Finally, Link and Zelda return in the eagerly awaited successor to unforgettable action-adventure The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with series producer Eiji Aonuma promising a darker adventure this time. Deep within the caverns beneath Hyrule Castle, a new and powerful threat awakens. Can our courageous heroes save the kingdom again?

Not a mind-blowing statement by any means, but always nice to have a confirmation. What were Link and Zelda doing in the caverns below Hyrule Castle to begin with? How much of the game will involve working our way through this underground hollow? Hopefully Nintendo shares more insight soon.

Thanks to MangoJackie93 for the heads up!

A discussion about Nintendo pops up on Let's Make A Deal

No zonks here

As some of you might know, I'm a big game show fan. I usually have some sort of game show playing on my second monitor while I'm working. That's exactly what I'm doing right now, and I managed to catch a discussion about video games during one of the shows.

Wayne Brady, the host of Let's Make a Deal, is a self-professed nerd. He's into all kinds of fun stuff, including video games. In the clip above, Wayne and a contestant get into a short back-and-forth about old-school gaming and Nintendo. Always fun to see Nintendo discussion pop up in unexpected places!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild speedrunner achieves a 100% completion, no-damage run

A true test of patience

Speedrunners are known for being extremely patient, as some of the tricks and tactics they use require a crazy amount of skill and pinpoint accuracy. That can be taken a step further when you throw a 100% completion qualifier onto the speedrun. Then there's the true sadists that throw in a no-damage qualifier as well. That's exactly what Joedun was going for with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and he's finally achieved his goal.

After hundreds of restarts, Joedun now holds the world record for a Zelda: Breath of the Wild 100% completion no-damage speedrun. It took him 31 hours, 58 minutes, and 9 seconds to achieve the record, and it was absolutely grueling the whole way through. Joedun had to beat the game, collect all container upgrades, finish the adventure log, find all 900 Korok seeds, obtain all the key items, beat every shrine, and fully upgrade every permanent weapon and armor. If you want to watch the madness for yourself, you can find the full run here.

TV personality Adam Conover says Netflix's live-action Legend of Zelda project was real, but was cancelled due to leaks

It was real all along...

Well here's an absolutely major story that broke seemingly out of nowhere, and it comes from a source that's equally as random.

Comedian/TV host Adam Conover was recently on The Serf Times podcast to talk about a Netflix feature he has coming up. That turned into a discussion of the rumored Legend of Zelda live-action adaptation that Nintendo and Netflix were supposedly working on years ago.

In the discussion, Conover reveals that the project was indeed real, as he had ties to another project with Nintendo at the time. That project ended up getting cancelled, as did the Legend of Zelda Netflix deal. Why was everything called off? Nintendo was upset with the leaks about the Netflix deal, which were supposedly leaked from someone inside Netflix themselves. When the leak got out there, Nintendo decided to squash a bunch of projects at the time, including the Legend of Zelda adaptation.

You can hear the whole discussion about the project in the video above. Fast-forward to the 39:47 mark to hear.
