The Legend of Zelda Fantasy Art Kindle eBooks
The Legend of Zelda is a high fantasy video game series created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka in 1986 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It immediately became one of the most successful video game series, selling a total of 107.07 million copies, and producing a large number of sequels, which appeared on many of the consoles of the Kyoto house: Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the various Game Boy, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch. Since its debut with the first The Legend of Zelda, the series is considered one of the most important and acclaimed in the gaming world and most of the titles that compose it are recognized by critics as great masterpieces, first of all The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, considered among the best video games of all time, not forgetting, of course, the original The Legend of Zelda.
In general, the series has had a profound impact and a great influence on gaming and mass culture. This success has led to the release of several manga and an animated series inspired by it, but these works have rarely crossed the borders of Japan. The gameplay can be defined as a mix of action, adventure and puzzle. The main enemy, an evil wizard called Ganondorf (or Ganon, depending on the episode), determined to take possession of the mystical object called Triforce, wreaks havoc on the lands of Hyrule by invading them with his hordes of creatures and monsters and taking them hostage Princess Zelda, heir to the throne of Hyrule. Link, the hero chosen by the goddesses, always intervenes to stand in the way of Ganondorf’s misdeeds. Some games of the main series, however, cannot be represented by this plot, in several it lacks Ganondorf, as in Majora’s Mask or Phantom Hourglass, as it was already defeated in the predecessors of the aforementioned games (respectively Ocarina of Time and The Wind Waker), while others, like Majora’s Mask himself, are not set in Hyrule. The games in the series seem to be set in the medieval era.
