Since the very begging, Koji Kondo has been the man behind the many melodies that have in many ways helped define the Legend of Zelda as we know it.

Kondo has composed piece after piece to accompany our adventures with the most fitting tunes. What about Kondo’s Adventures?

Early last month, Nintendo announced in a Nintendo Direct that, over three years after the release of “Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D,” “Majora’s Mask” is officially slated for a 3D release at some point next spring. The aim of my project here is to reflect on a game which, far beyond being merely the sequel to “Ocarina of Time,” is, in my view, one of the most significant pieces of art in modern times. While the release date for “Majora’s Mask 3D” has not been publicized at this point, my goal is to write regular reflections on different facets of the game, in the hopes that, by the time it is released, I will have articulated just what about this game strikes me as irrevocably moving.

Hurray! The server troubles appear to be behind us and we are now fully functional. We were able to diagnose what was wrong and we have fixed the problem. The website should now be running smoother than it has in quite some time.

Regular news and article update will be resuming shortly. Thanks again for your patience.
Hey guys, we have been having off and on server trouble for much of Wednesday and the early part of Thursday. We have been working hard to diagnose what is causing these server errors, and making every effort to get the website fully functional. The brand new server we recently moved to is more powerful than our previous one, but it will take a bit of optimization before everything is running smoothly. Please bear with us while we try to get the site fully functional. Thanks for understanding.
It has been over 3 years since the last time we revamped the site layout, but today I’d like to introduce the newest version of Zelda Dungeon. This much needed change makes several upgrades to the website, while also staying true to many familiar functions that you’ve come to love. It’s worth noting that during this transition period, there are quite a few lingering errors and edits that need to be worked out before the website has completely shifted to the new layout. We will be working throughout the day to get all pages converted over, and throughout the next few weeks to fully realize this change. For a full breakdown of all the changes with the new theme, go ahead and make the jump.

League of Legends has become extremely popular in the past few years and millions of people around the world play it everyday. As with any popular game, there are people out there that will find ways to mod the game. Luckily for us Zelda fans, someone has created a Link skin for League of Legends! The skin is for the champion Garen. It’s not only the skin that changes either; the attacks look different as well. Each of the Link’s attacks involve the Triforce, which is pretty cool. The only thing that doesn’t change is his voice.

We all know the story of the Zora Sapphire, appropriately called the Zora’s Engagement Ring. Not only is it the last Spiritual Stone needed to open the Temple of Time, but it’s also an agreement (or curse, however you wish to view it) between Link and our beloved Princess Ruto. Wouldn’t it be lovely to feel the way Ruto felt as she spoke those vows to our poor hero? Well, one man made it possible. Megathor4242 from reddit had a unique replica of the Zora’s Sapphire made into an engagement ring.
