As of a week ago, speedrunners have found a way to complete The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in under an hour. The moody Ocarina of Time sequel is best known for its lengthy sidequests and countless collectables. A glitch allowing players to access a hidden debug menu has cut out much of the necessary scurrying.

The result is a run that involves playing the ocarina a ton of times until the runner can snag items from the developer’s menu and then rush off to beat the game.


It has proven difficult to find big glitches in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is why speedrunners haven’t yet figured out how to complete the game in less than five hours. Other big Zelda games, such as Ocarina of Time, are far glitchier and therefore far easier to speedrun.

But a new discovery, which has led to a plethora of fresh skips and sequence breaking, has brought new life to Skyward Sword.


Most players will take days to complete The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, but speedrunners do it much faster. Thanks to a year full of new discoveries and attempts by hard-working runners, The Wind Waker HD has been completed, for the first time ever, in under an hour.


It's closer to a shoulder-mounted retro cannon, and it's certainly one of the best ways to make the Switch an infinitely less portable device. But this RadioShack Boombox is still four consoles in one, and a pretty great accomplishment.


Link's great and all, but The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's world is too beautiful to explore as him alone. That's why players have modded other characters into the game, ranging from Sonic to Goku. Now there's a mod adding one of the most obvious choices of all: Hyrule Warriors' Linkle.


"Grab a Wii U while you can, because they won't be around forever," a Nintendo executive said in a 2016 interview, as the company geared up for the launch of Switch.

The Wii U has vanished from retail stores and, now, used games salespeople across the country are saying that they're not seeing many Wii U trade-ins. If you want a Wii U, you'd better get one soon.


Since its first DLC, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has given players the option to look back at all the places they have travelled by showing their path in green, known in the game as the "Hero's Path." While the feature has always been neat, it looks even more unique and intimate when turned into a real-life work of art.


The Nintendo games that star an acrobatic plumber, a go-kart-racing dinosaur or a bounty hunter are what passes for normal from the world's most successful video game company. Thank goodness Nintendo regularly gets far weirder than that.
