Zelda Universe Hosts Contests to Bookend Zelda’s 30th Anniversary

2017 may be here, but we’re still about six weeks away from the end of The Legend of Zelda’s 30th anniversary year. With that said, fan site Zelda Universe saw fit to close out the festivities with a series of contests dedicated to the series’ multifaceted fandom.

Each Monday, beginning tomorrow and running up until Feb. 19, a new contest centered on a specific aspect of Zelda fandom will open up. For instance, this first one is dedicated to individual collections, while the following week’s contest is all about fan art.

The ZU team’s ten favorite entries from each week will receive a special reward, courtesy of Nintendo Australia: prints of three of the series’ most iconic pieces of official artwork, each boasting gold foil and the 30th anniversary logo.

For the full details, as well as a look at the unique prints themselves, head over to Zelda Universe. With Breath of the Wild — fingers crossed — just around the corner, these contests should serve as an excellent reminder of why we fell in love with Link’s adventures in the first place. Best of luck to all of the participants!

Reminder: Still a few days left to participate in WMB’s latest contest

WMB’s latest contest — in which the winner receives a copy of Twilight Princess HD — is well underway. This is just a reminder that there are still a few days left before the deadline. Although the original one was set for Monday at noon (central time), I’ve extended it to Tuesday at 5:00. Head over here for all of the details!

Enter WMB’s Latest Contest for a Chance to Win a Copy of Twilight Princess HD

With The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD a mere two weeks away, it’s about that time for some nostalgic reminiscing. The original GameCube-Wii title is not only my favorite video game, but also a key source of creative inspiration. I rarely cite a piece of media and say “that thing changed my life,” but Link and Midna’s adventure — both directly and indirectly — has made a tremendously lasting effect. From the fond memories I have with the game itself to the friends I’ve made through sites such as WMB, no other piece of entertainment comes close in terms of personal impact.

Considering the original purpose of this site, it’s clear that other people feel similarly. Before we re-experience the Hero of Twilight’s journey, let’s express why we fell in love with this game in the first place.

Through just about any creative means — writing, music, hand art, graphic art, etc. — let us know what Twilight Princess means to you. Feel free to write a piece — similar to WMB’s Testimonals — in which you discuss your experience with the game as a whole. Share a drawing or painting of King Bulbin. Build a Wolf Link papercraft — whatever sounds like the most fun to you.

Assuming we get a substantial number of submissions, we’ll collect them all on February 29 and present them on the front page. On top of that, we’ll pick one person among the group and send them a copy of Twilight Princess HD. Hit the jump for some of the specific details.
