Ganondorf's Last Name is Officially Dragmire Again

Nintendo's Legend of Zelda website has stated the surname of the series' big baddie: Ganondorf Dragmire.

It's the first official usage of the surname in 25 years - since 1992, when it originally appeared in A Link to the Past's English game manual.

The Legend of Zelda series features different incarnations of Ganondorf (and Link, and Zelda), and so Ganondorf Dragmire was previously assumed to be just the name of Ganondorf within that game.

Awkwardly fitting for a guy who only says HAH all the time.

He is so awkward in cut-scenes in Breath of the Wild.

^Yeah he doesn't even respond when asked a question... so why did they make him receive questions in the first place?

I think you're thinking of Mario Mario...? Or maybe his brother, Luigi Mario? They're the Mario brothers.

Nice very cool name.
Link Zelda and Ganon are gods in constant battle for Hyrule.

Noone cares... The meat and potatos of this game can be had for much faster than previous zelda titles... The wiiu version worked just fine for me. Now give us old school nintendo fans a real reason to buy the ns... Cough Metroid prime 4 or a side scrolling metroid 4 cough... Hell even a new sun rpg series would fit the bill. Or i dont know... A new ip. Yet instead we get rehashes of the same shit that comes out every nintendo console.

Honestly I really changed my mind on Fi with the remaster because they didn't make her interrupt your gameplay every 5 seconds, that drastically changed my views on her

Technically she's in ToTK but obviously can't take any other form than the sword she was made into. Also the companion feature has been done plenty of times in Zelda, I don't think it'll add anything new. If anything should be brought back it should be the Minish.


Directionless Modern Zelda Should Return to its 3D Roots

Matt from We Game Daily writes "The Legend of Zelda series has gone in a different direction. One which, try as I have, I just can’t get on board with. Here is why I think Zelda should return to its 3D roots."

Amen! A good, tight, Zelda game with a focus on dungeons and puzzles. Let people have the new style Zelda if you gotta, but let us have the OoT style games too. That's not without precedent either, the handheld 2D Zelda's in the style of A Link to the Past etc have coexisted alongside the 3D Zelda's before
