I have recently had the pleasure of taking part in a fantastic collaboration – Hyrule: See the Sights! Hear the Sounds! Matthew & Nikki from Normal Happenings decided that it would be awesome to create a kind of Zelda guide-book, looking in-depth at some of the amazing locations from the Zelda series and my goodness were they right!
Presumably deciding it would be too much work to do this alone, they sought writers from across the blogging community to write entries for all the Zelda locations they could possibly think of and compiled this into something which would definitely sell for actual money if it was printed into book form (so Nintendo, if you’re reading this, go give Matthew and Nikki a bucket of rupees).
The completed first edition of the guide-book is out now, so you should stop reading this and go and visit the whole piece over at the Normal Happenings blog where you can read and learn about all the amazing locations featured in the Zelda series, as told by a group of amazingly talented bloggers and Zelda fanatics.
For my part, I’ll be looking at two locations: Ikana Canyon from what is probably my favourite Zelda game – Majora’s Mask, and The Lumpy Pumpkin from Skyward Sword. I’ve given the Lumpy Pumpkin the full-on bar review treatment, whilst for Ikana Canyon I’ve taken a different tack and looked at the history and culture of the region.
Introduction complete, I’ll leave you to go over to the main page – Hyrule: See the Sights! Hear the Sounds! and discover more wonders of the Zelda universe for yourself. I want to say a huge thank you to Matthew and Nikki for allowing me to take part in what is a truly beautiful collaboration (and for your never ending patience…) and also to thank all the other talented and inspiring bloggers who contributed.
Thanks for reading, and make sure you check out all the entries over at Normal Happenings!
