  • July 26, 2014: NOW HIRING!

Zelda Wiki is now hiring! Are you passionate about The Legend of Zelda and want to share your knowledge of the series? Then consider helping out the internet's largest resource for information about all things Zelda. Anyone can edit, but we need experts to ensure that our articles are correct and meet certain quality standards. Here's what we're looking for:


Content Controllers

You'll be responsible for checking edits made to pages (patrolling), fact-checking including adding references and sources, and ensuring that the Wiki's quality standards are kept. You'll also have to do a bit of cleanup sometimes, such as removing duplicate images. You should be fluent in English and knowledgeable about Zelda. Perfectionist-types would be well-suited for this role!


Techies

We're also looking for technical staff. We're working on a redesign of the Wiki at the moment and would love some front-end developers to help with that. We also need someone to help out with server maintenance as well.


Previous experience with MediaWiki is a plus, but not essential. For any role on Zelda Wiki you'll need to be able to work as part of a team, be available regularly and use our online staff chatroom for communication. Please note that Zelda Wiki is run entirely by volunteers and so we can't pay you for your work.


If you think you'd be a good fit for one of these roles, send an email to webmaster@zeldawiki.org with your name, age, and contact details, and tell us what you'd like to do for Zelda Wiki and why you'd be good at it. Make sure to include any previous experience with other Wikis or Zelda websites.

[Zelda Universe] Director Masahiro Sakurai reveals the main menu screen for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

In his latest “pic of the day” screenshots for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. titles on Miiverse, series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed the main menu screen for the 3DS version.

It appears rather similar to the main menu design of Brawl, with bold, clean, colourful icons representing each option. Sakurai adds in his caption that “The icons are even animated.”

He goes on to explain that this menu is actually more complex than it appears. “We had a hard time making this one because the bottom screen displays pictures matching each mode!” he says. “This was quite a task for the UI (User Interface) designers, but they made it happen. Kudos to them! You can tap the screen to look up additional info like how to play–complete with diagrams.”

Here is the aforementioned bottom screen.

[Zelda Universe] Hyrule Warriors screens: Sheik jumps to action with destructive harps and slashing knives

We have known for quite some time that Princess Zelda is one of the playable characters in Hyrule Warriors. Surprisingly, Sheik will be part of the team as well. Those of us who remember the plot twist from Ocarina of Time will scratch their heads in confusion, and I have to admit that I did the same. Just like in previous games, Sheik and Impa seem to share a special bond. She can hardly be seen without the captain of the Hyrule Royal Army.

In one picture, Sheik can be seen fighting an enemy that looks exactly like Zelda, albeit just a bit more evil than the one we know. Could this be a “Dark Zelda”?

Sheik’s weapon of choice is the harp (another music instrument for the ladies) on which she plays songs that cause a lot of trouble for her enemies. The harp looks like the one Zelda used in Skyward Sword, rather than Medli’s from Wind Waker. Her secondary weapon is a dagger (or a throwing knife?) that suits her ninja style just perfectly.

Here she can be seen holding a new item in her hand.
