Each year Zelda Dungeon hosts our annual 100+ hour Summer Zelda Dungeon Marathon. Additionally, we have plans for some other site and game related live events that are in the works. Right now we have a rather unique opportunity as we are looking to grow our base for future live events. Have you ever wanted to attend one of our Zelda Dungeon Marathons or other events? Well now could be your chance to do so.

Hello everybody and welcome to the latest edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! We haven’t really been given much information on Zelda U, but it that a good thing or a bad thing? Working towards the release of Tri Force Heroes we got quite a bit of information on the game. The complete opposite is happening with Zelda U. Is this the path Nintendo should be taking though? If we get frequent small updates on the game then we do know quite a bit about the game by the time it’s released but how much information is necessary. Some people don’t like having anything revealed at all so when they actually play the game themselves they are in for a complete surprise. Which of these is better for you? Frequent and small, or less frequent but large?
In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks various staff members will share with us their opinion on what they believe is the best path is for reveals during the development stage and why. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below. Next week’s question is ‘What Console/Handheld Presents the Best Way to Play Zelda?’ so if you are interested in having your response featured put send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

With the recent Nintendo Direct confirming Zelda Wii U’s release on the Wii U console in 2016, many have been wondering, what about the NX? Nintendo has been reluctant to share more information about it, but Forbes contributor Paul Tassi sees no other option for the console than a 2016 holiday release. Therein lies the problem, if Zelda Wii U releases in fall of 2016 for only the Wii U it will be disastrous for sales once the NX launches. The best solution for this case would be to adapt the game for both consoles, but the NX likely won’t make use of a gamepad, so this offers up more problems than solutions.
With so much uncertainty surrounding the NX’s launch, the fate of Zelda Wii U is still unwritten, but much will be speculated after the jump!
No doubt many of us are excited for March 4th– the day when we’ll be able to hold in our hands the coveted Twilight Princess HD for the very first time. But as with any HD remake, some things have changed, one such thing being the game’s boxart. Instead of the traditional Wolf Link and Link split side view, we’ve got a couple more of our beloved characters donning the cover. True to the HD label as well, the game has received a visual upgrade and we’ve got the screenshots to prove it. See the new boxart and screencaps after the jump!
I do hope everyone is having a very merry Zelda Month– if not, here’s something that just might cheer you up. PeanutButterGamer has revealed this year’s three new Zelda Month T-shirts, courtesy of The Yetee. Each shirt is $17.00 a piece and will only be available during the month of November. All three shirts can also be purchased for $45.00 in the “Tee-Force Heroes Bundle” that comes with an exclusive Zelda Month sticker; this offer ends on November 22nd. Watch PBG’s announcement video and get a closer look at the new shirts after the jump!
Tri Force Heroes and its collection of suits could not have come along at a more convenient time. It’s Halloween! And what better way to celebrate Halloween than putting on an amazing getup and heading out into a world of monsters and heroes and candy? On this special holiday edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks, some of the staff and I have picked out our favorite Tri Force Heroes suits that we would like to wear as our Halloween costumes.
Hit the jump to see our staff picks and be sure to tell us which suit you’d wear for Halloween in the comments below!
In anticipation of the wonderful celebration of Halloween, I have been watching copious amounts of classic horror films– mainly The Omen, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, and my personal favorite, the Michael Myers’ Halloween series. With all the frights I’ve been experiencing, I’ve pretty much got the cheesy-horror-formula and tropes down pat. That being said, I figured why not see if I could merge my two great loves and fit The Legend of Zelda series into the confines of a scary movie? To see how I’d turn our beloved series into a behowling thriller, hit the jump!
Nintendo is continuing its work with Koei Tecmo, the company that developed Hyrule Warriors, on a new game called Project Zero: Maiden of Black Water. It is a survival-horror game and the most recent installment of the long running Fatal Frame / Project Zero series. Though released for the Wii U in Japan on September 2014, the game is launching on October 30th elsewhere and thus the game’s female protagonists have been given two new outfits: a Princess Zelda costume and a Zero Suit Samus costume. Naturally, the Zelda getup being used is that of her character in Hyrule Warriors. Take a look at the costumes trailer after the jump!
In Four Swords Adventures, you could unlock multiplayer mini-games by progressing through the story. When you progress far enough in a section of the world map, Tingle will do a fly-by and drop one of his towers somewhere on the map. Inside, you can play quite a few multiplayer mini-games (as many as you’ve unlocked) for a nice break from adventuring for a bit. The mini-games were a fun way to take a break from playing through the story and just having some fun with friends. That’s the subject of which I’d like to discuss; should Tingle’s Tower (or the concept) return in a future Zelda title? Hit the jump to check out more!
Who’s ready for some more screenshots for the highly anticipated 3DS adaptation of Hyrule Warriors? Just beyond the jump we have several standalone shots pulled from the recent Famitsu magazine scans as well as a few newer cut scene stills and official art pages. Feel free to make the jump to check them out!
If you still need to pre-order Tri Force Heroes, you might want to consider looking towards Amazon Prime. According to Amazon, Prime members qualify for a discount on the title and that the discount is only offered for pre-orders. Amazon doesn’t state an exact number for the discount until you go through the checkout process. While making my order, the discount showed $5.00. Including tax and without considering the shipping cost, Amazon Prime members are looking at a cost of $38.00 versus $43.00. What a steal!
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, hurry on over and make your purchase before the opportunity is gone. There’s only two weeks left!
Hey all and welcome to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! Throughout the numerous games in The Legend of Zelda series, we have seen many, many different Link’s. All carrying the spirit of the hero, all named Link. With so many Link’s to choose from, at least one of them has to stand out from the rest. The question we want to find the answer to is which Link is the most heroic. Which Link has the best qualities of a hero that we have seen so far? When I first saw this question the Link from Skyward Sword instantly popped into my mind. He didn’t do it because there was a princess that needed desperate help and in the beginning he didn’t know that there was a demon lord lurking on the surface. No, his motives were always to rescue his friend Zelda. This is just my opinion though, it’s time to find out what you guys think!
In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members will tell us which Link the believed was the most heroic. Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments below. Read more…
It seems like Nintendo’s relationship with Grezzo is becoming a staple in their handheld gaming. If you don’t recognize the name Grezzo, then go check out your copy of either Ocarina of Time 3D or Majora’s Mask 3D. The Japanese video game developer company, founded in 2006, has made great fame by adapting our favorite Zelda console games to the handheld 3DS. And I for one am a huge fan of their work. Now it seems that they have put their focus into the completely new title Triforce Heroes. This isn’t the first time Grezzo has worked on a new title, but it is the first time working with a new Zelda game. Personally I believe this amps up the games abilities, seeing as how well they were able to seamlessly adapt Ocarina and Majora to a completely different console. They obviously know the 3DS very well, and are capable of creating a unique and wonderful experience for old and new Zelda gamers. Can’t wait till Oct. 23!
