General Information

The videos served both as entertainment and as advertisements for The Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds. The first episode, Tunnel Vision, appeared on November 1, 2013, with each new episode appearing six days after the previous one. The last episode, Pearl of Pain!, was released on January 6, 2014.

The Misadventures of Link was based on Link's adventures from The Wind Waker HD. The series were designed to be humorous and depicted Link in a "new and hysterical light."[1] Despite initial reports that suggested that the series were to be animated, much like The Legend of Zelda animated series, as many articles used the word cartoon to describe the series, it was actually a machinima series. While most machinimas are fanmade, The Misadventures of Link was an official Nintendo production, so The Wind Waker HD game engine was used with custom camera angles and facial expressions, although some episodes were just in-game cutscenes with slight modifications.
