Breath of the Wild Guide Updates

We are now a month removed from the release of the latest Zelda game and we are still working hard to complete our Breath of the Wild Walkthrough. Recently, we have just about completed our Shrine Locations Guide. We still have a few lingering ones we need to finish, but we now have complete guides for 117 of the 120 different shrines in the game, including detailed text, pictures, and a video guide for each shrine.

We’ve also been continuing to improve on our Interactive Map, and while we have all 900 Korok Locations marked on the map, we’ve also started to create individual pages for each region of the game. We have complete guides of all the Koroks in the Great Plateau and Dueling Peaks regions of the game. In addition to individual screenshots, maps, and text for each Korok, we also have a video guides showcasing all Koroks in the two particular regions.

We will be continuing to upgrade many of our guides in the coming weeks, so stay tuned and thanks for all the support.

More Guide Updates for Breath of the Wild

Today is the 9th day since the release of Breath of the Wild and we are still moving along with our Breath of the Wild Walkthrough. Our main quest guide is complete, but we are now hitting hard on our Shrine Locations Guide. While you can look up and find the locations of all 120 shrines on our Breath of the Wild Interactive Map, we are committed to providing guides for each and every shrine in the game.

Every shrine will have its own guide, showing its location, how to reach it, a full text and picture guide, as well as a video walkthrough. I’ve been working around the clock to try to get this material out as quickly as possible. Currently we have complete guides for 23 of the shrines. We will be adding more every single day until we reach completion so stay tuned.

Breath of the Wild Content Upgrades

I’m happy to announce that our Breath of the Wild Guide is now complete. This guide will take you through the entire Main Quest and it stretches across 14-chapters with over 500 screenshots to guide you along the way.

This is just the beginning of our coverage of the game. We’ve been very hard at work on our Breath of the Wild Interactive Map, which currently showcases all of the Shrine locations, all the Sheikah Towers, a growing compilation of all of the Korok Seed Locations, and so much more. We’ve been regularly adding new features to the interactive map and we are very excited about the direction it’s going.

Work will begin on our Side Quest Catalogue shortly, as well as continued upgrades to our Shrine Locations and progress on the interactive map. Thanks for all your kind words and continued support.

Breath of the Wild is Finally Here and We Got You Covered

Breath of the Wild Day has finally come and we are already hard at work on our Breath of the Wild Walkthrough. Throughout the month of March we will be updating it daily with new chapters to the main quest, as well as all of the subsequent content there is to find in the game. Currently we have the below pages operational, but rest assured a lot more will be added in the coming hours and days ahead. Let the gaming begin.

For news, reactions, and editorials about the game, be sure to check out our sister website, Zelda Informer.

Our Breath of the Wild Walkthrough Has Launched

Over the past week we have been working hard to prepare our Breath of the Wild Guide and today we have the first several sections available for viewing. Obviously the game is still several months away and what we have put together is just a placeholder for what will eventually be our full walkthrough.

At E3 2016 the game took an extensive look at the Great Plateau, the starting region in the game. Our guide currently covers Links first steps into the Overworld and his journey through the first several Shrines.

We are currently looking for some additional writers to help us prepare for Breath of the Wild, as well as to improve some of our other game guides. If you are at all interested in helping with guide and content writing, please send in an application to webmaster@zeldadungeon.net.

The Legend of Zelda Guide Has Been Updated

Our Legend of Zelda Walkthrough has received an upgrade and is now fully available online. The guide was revamped several years back, but it never received a proper transition to our current theme due to the complication of the format. For the last two years the guide was viewable but it was still utilizing the websites old site layout. Nevertheless, the guide has been upgraded and is now fully functional on our current theme and very easily viewable on mobile devices. Additionally, the text has been completely re-written and new maps have been added throughout.

With the recent release of the NES Classic Edition, the original Legend of Zelda has been made accessible on yet another device for gamers to enjoy. Glancing at our site tracking, we noticed a significant bump in viewership for this particular guide as soon as the game was re-released. With Christmas just around the corner, the NES Classic makes for a perfect holiday gift, and our guide will make for smooth-sailing on everybody’s quest to save Hyrule.

Upgrading this guide is part of our current initiative of upgrading several of our game guides and walkthroughs. We are still looking for new team members if you are interested in helping out. Look for more upgrades as we lead to the eventual release of our Breath of the Wild Guide next year.

We Have Relaunched Our Community Forum With Several Prize Giveaways

forumsBack in January of this year, Zelda Dungeon and Zelda Informer joined forces and our now sister websites under the same hub. This has created a ton of changes, and most notably, a far less active front page here at Zelda Dungeon as those efforts have shifted to Zelda Informer. From day one, one of our goals was to unite our forum communities and we have finally done that, with a relaunch of the now rebranded ZD-i Forums.

To celebrate the relaunch of our forums, we are hosting one of our largest prize giveaways that we’ve done in years. We have guaranteed prizes available for new members, as well as a grand prize that includes a Ganondorf First 4 Figures statue. Jump inside for all the details.

Zelda Dungeon Talks: Are Weather and Clothing Requirements Welcome Changes, or Unnecessary Complications?

d98a7c4ed69aec115e2db38eab4d5040There are certain game aspects that are almost expected in any and all new open-world games, and Breath of the Wild is no exception. Conventions in the series are changing, but usual open-world conventions are entering, as they are staples of sorts for the genre. These include fast travel points, non-linear exploration, cooking, customization equipment, and in line with today’s discussion, shifting weather conditions and respective clothing requirements. There are some that are worried that these closely related elements are unwelcome, leading to nothing more than extra time consumption. Others think it could lead to some amazing situations while travelling the world, and could become a Zelda staple. This week, the ZD staff have given their own thoughts on the subject.

As usual, make sure to hit up the comments with your own thoughts on the new weather and clothing system coming to Link’s newest adventures. Read more…

A Night At The Symphony And An Exclusive Interview With Jason Michael Paul

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 7.20.47 PMJust a couple of weeks ago I found myself with the great fortune of spending another night with The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses. This year, the performance was to be held in the same venue, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Fl. As I was walked around before the performance I couldn’t help but ask myself; What was it going to be like this year, would I be as captivated as I had been last year, would it be even better than I remembered, how impactful would the new additions to the symphony be? So many questions were running around in my mind but I knew the night was going to be full of surprises, and I couldn’t wait for it to begin! Join me, as I spend an evening with the Symphony of the Goddesses, and some familiar faces too!

ZD Top 5 – Direct Sequels in Zelda

phantom-hourglass-the-legend-of-zelda-phantom-hourglass-31781866-1280-1024The Zelda series is certainly not known for its direct sequels. Most games act as their own independent stories, connected by no more than some subtleties regarding the overall timeline, so one could say that it is a pleasant change of pace to see a series title get a direct sequel – a game featuring events that directly follow the previous game, or happen in the same world, but occur at a later time, like in Majora’s Mask or A Link Between Worlds. There are not many, but there are enough for a list of favorites, so this week, the ZD staff takes a look at their favorite sequels in Zelda.

As usual, make sure to hit the comments, and to list your Top 5 sequels in the series! Read more…

Recording is a great thing, and the Zelda Dungeon YouTube channel has some of the full races posted, and will be posting more very soon!

(UPDATED) Zelda Dungeon Talks: What Don’t You Like About Breath of the Wild So Far?

modal_ss_16__banner-auto-croppingBreath of the Wild still has everyone’s attention, with discussions continuing online, and Nintendo (FIIIIINALLY) releasing the occasional little video showing off a new mechanic or weapon that we can expect to use in the game. The open world, new combat, item customization, and other crazy leaps from the usual Zelda staples is certainly daunting, but that is not always a good thing, especially for seasoned Zelda fans. The general lack of info and swaths of changed mechanics is worrying at times, so the ZD staff has taken the time to express some of their personal concerns with what has been revealed so far.

As usual, make sure to hit up the comments and let us know your own thoughts on the matter. What rubs you the wrong way about what we’ve seen of the game so far? Read more…

Zelda Dungeon Talks: What Kind of Backstory Do You Expect/Want to See for Breath of the Wild’s Guardians?

Guardian-BotWWhile we wait for Nintendo to drop more news on us about the last great Wii U epic, Breath of the Wild will continue to spawn discussions about story and such, but what about the details of what we have already seen? Sure, the overall story is a point of great mystery, but the settings, characters, enemies and other elements we know of could sure use some explanations, including one of the most prominent parts of the game as we know it currently: the Guardians. These behemoths seem to play a major part in the game, so naturally, they will have some kind of backstory to them. What do you think the Guardians’ origins may be? What significance do they hold towards the Sheikah, the fall of Hyrule, and Breath of the Wild‘s story as a whole?

This week, the ZD staff take a look at this exact topic. As always, make sure to drop some comments with your own responses! Read more…
