Today’s Theme: Where would I want to live in the Zelda Universe
So, if I we’re Link and I finally decided to hang up the hero’s sword and that fashionable green tunic for the last time, where would I settle down? If you remember a few days back, I said the npc’s were not that immersive. The towns, on the other hand, are rather great. I love most of the towns in the Zelda Universe. We’ve been to a lot.
So where would I want to retire: Kakariko Village
Just look at it!
It’s been here since Link To The Past, and it’s been pretty good to us. My first memories of this town are from Ocarina of Time. The town theme is timeless. The carpenters are hilarious with all their weird sounds. And you learn the song of storms here!
As much as I remember it being really peaceful and enjoyable, I’m remembering how weird and eerie the village was too.
For starters, the graveyard. Dampe is a very memorable character. He is always stocking the graveyard with his shovel. Not to mention, when he passes away when you move forward in time was really sad to me. But, we did however get the Hookshot, a very cool item.
Next on the eerie list. The skulltula house. The family placed under a curse. The lighting helps set the tone. Dont even get me started on the creepy sounds and dancing.
There’s also the witch’s potion shop. Witches are pretty inherently creepy.
Lastly, the well. The well man. It’s not even a hard part, but the area is so creepy. The fact that you cant truly see the creatures and corridors makes it so I would not go down there if it was me.
But all that aside. It’s a quick horse ride to the Zora’s domain, The Hyrule castle, and the beach(lake)! Not to mention, Death Mountain is your backyard.
Okay, so honestly, it’s a pretty creepy place, but the theme music make’s it very relaxing, and the renovations suggest it’s on the rise! Also, the Kakriko village in A Link To The Past is super sweet, but I have not been there recently enough to recall details.
Anyway, where would you like to like town wise?
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
