Our Champions’ Cast counterparts Andy and Taylor always have some great insight into The Legend of Zelda series. On this week’s episode of the podcast one of the topics they discussed were if the shrines in Breath of the Wild were an adequate substitute for the lack of traditional Zelda dungeons. Dungeons are of course a big deal to all Zelda fans including myself and Mases. Inspired by their discussion we thought we’d pitch in our two cents in the…

Collectibles are an obvious mainstay of The Legend of Zelda series. Outside of of your typical heart pieces, Link’s Awakening was pretty inspirational for introducing even more bonus collectibles in the form of the secret seashells. In the newest entry in our Hyrule Compendium series, Mases and I discuss the seashells and how we think they could be reworked for the upcoming remake. Of course we could be way off, so please feel free to let us know how you…

Sometimes the labyrinths of the Legend of Zelda series leave us massively stumped, challenged, or frustrated.

For a game about collecting instruments, I don’t often hear much praise for Link’s Awakening’s soundtrack. While there a couple tracks that standout, it is certainly not given the same reverence as some of the other game’s soundtracks. In our latest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I get to the bottom of this issue as we discuss what could be done with the upcoming Switch remake. What do you think? Are you excited to hear updated versions of…

It’s been a wild year for Zelda announcements so far! Not only are we getting a remake of Link’s Awakening, the crossover indie title Cadence of Hyrule, but Nintendo has also announced a VR mode will be coming to Breath of the Wild via Labo. In this week’s entry into the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss our feelings on the news of Labo being implemented into Breath of the Wild. What do you think? We were shocked but we’d…

While Link’s Awakening DX had the wonderful addition of color and even a bonus dungeon, the additional photograph collection it added added a bunch of flavor to the already unique world. In the newest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss our favorite photos, if they will return to the upcoming remake, and what more could be added to this feature. What would you like to see in the game? Should they add more content involving the photographs?…

Nintendo dropped quite the bombshell on us last week! In our newest entry in our Hyrule Compendium series, we discuss the recently announced Cadence of Hyrule. We give our initial impressions on the game and give some thoughts on what we think this could mean for the Zelda series. Feel free to let us know how this announcement has you feeling in the comments below. Are you interested in this? Will you pick up Crypt of the Necromancer to prepare?…

When the Link’s Awakening remake was revealed, a few of us around here took note of the title in the trailer being simply “Link’s Awakening“. If this is the final title for the game, it breaks the typical naming convention of other Zelda remakes. That being said, maybe this was just a tease. Is there more to the title than this? Does it even really matter? In the latest Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss just that. Mas especially is…

Link’s Awakening DX breathed extra life into it’s original game. The dream like world of Koholint now had a beautiful color palette to go with it. Coming with this update was a brand new dungeon. The Color Dungeon, as it was aptly called, took advantage of the new colorful version of the game, having puzzles and enemies which were color based. With the announcement of a remake of Link’s Awakening, many were asking us if we thought this bonus dungeon…

It may be a little too soon to know if the Link’s Awakening remake for Switch will change any of the elements of the original game, but from what we’ve seen so fare it sure is fun to speculate! So far we’ve seen a tiny change to Kanalet Castle, giving it a ledge to drop off for easy exit. That alone got our minds racing! Join us as we discuss what else could be changed or added to the game….
