The article also touches upon the ways the game might be seen negatively from fans. In that the mix of hype and constant delays might let fans down or only prepare them for disappointment when the game is eventually released.

Zelda Dungeon Exclusive: Interview With Heart Tracking App Creator

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 11.04.00 AMLast week we reported about a great little app available for iOS that would help you track all of those heart pieces within The Legend of Zelda series that needed acquiring, and those that you had already hunted down. The app keeps all the heart pieces available within each game separated by title and once you have selected a specific title, it will tell you exactly where each piece is hidden and what requirements if any are needed to secure said piece. Once your prize is in hand you can check off that you have secured it and move on to the next piece. Its a great way for you to remember which pieces you have already found and those that still need finding, and best of all its free! So far the app has been out for about two weeks and has received high praise but you may be wondering a few things. What made the developer create this app? Will it be available for Android? What else can you look forward to in the future from this developer? Now we have those answers, we had a chance to chat with David, the creator of the “Pieces of Heart” app to ask him those questions and a few more!

Head on past the break to find out what he said.

Zelda Dungeon Talks: Can The Series Continue To Rely On Gimmicks?

ocarina_of_timeHello and welcome everyone, to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! In most games in the Zelda franchise, there is some sort of gimmick to set the game apart for the rest. The touch screen from Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks or the time travel in Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask are both examples of gimmicks that have differentiated the games from others in the series. The question is however, can Nintendo continue to rely on gimmicks? Personally I believe they don’t rely on gimmicks at all but everyone has their own opinion. 

In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members will share with us their opinion on whether or not Nintendo relies on gimmicks in the Zelda franchise and if they do, can it continue. Read more…

Gossip Stone: Could There Still be a Possibility of a Zelda Movie?

hqdefaultIt is not exactly a popular opinion to think a Legend of Zelda movie would turn out well. Countless fans have debated whether seeing Zelda on the big screen, live action or otherwise, is even worth the trouble, and now, after the rather recent Netflix series rumors were debunked, people have gone back to discussing possibilities. There will likely always be a possibility of someone making their own Zelda movie, but said movie’s quality hangs in the balance, depending on who makes it, and how. What can be expected from here on out, and are we still right to look at what has already come of game movies as a reference of what will happen for Zelda?

Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 11.13.59 AMOur friends over at Zelda Universe and HMK, the You Tube channel that focuses on the Zelda, and Kingdom Hearts franchise along with a few other gaming goodies; have partnered together to create a series of videos titled Zelda 101. The episodes will focus on the legends and lore within the Zelda universe and hopefully dispel any possible confusion that such a vast world that the Zelda franchise encapsulates can create. With the many “facts, theories, and possibilities” that they will share the episodes will surely be a topic of conversation amongst fans.

Zelda U Ranks In Famitsu’s Top 20 Most Wanted Games

Zelda002Famitsu is a gaming centered publication in Japan that has weekly, monthly, and special editions that range from many different topics, all pertaining to video game related news and information. The Weekly Famitsu is widely considered the most respected and most read magazine in Japan. Each week Famitsu shares a list of “Most Wanted Games” based on votes that are cast during a one week time period, and since the beginning of this year the upcoming Zelda title for the Wii U has ranked amongst its Top 20 most wanted titles. Ranging from the #12 spot to currently sitting in the #17 spot this title continues to gain votes and appears to be keeping gamers attention. This makes me wonder how long can that last? Currently, we have no release date, no additional information, and we have not seen any new footage since The Game Awards Show last year. Since the release date is still listed as TBD from Nintendo all we can currently do is hope we will see Zelda U release in 2016 — and get a proper title! Are you still excited about the game? Does it hurt a title to know about it too much in advance, could the hype possibly ruin it for the fans? I myself am trying my best to stay slightly indifferent in the matter, although I am not sure I am succeeding. I know I want a good Zelda game, and I am content to wait patiently for that to happen. What are your thoughts? Are you still excited about Zelda U, or are you trying to stay away from the matter and just be excited whenever we get some new information? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
