Recently, a rumor has surfaced that Nintendo may be working on some sort of remaster to be released in 2015, which could very easily be a Zelda title. The rumor has come from Twitter, and just may have some weight behind it.

Hello Zelda fans. I’m back once again to bring you another Collection Spotlight. This feature has been very free and open to interpretation.

Puzzles in the Legend of Zelda series have always been a significant component in its gameplay, especially in the more modern entries. In a recent interview with Nintendo’s Japanese website, Aonuma answered questions about the direction of the puzzle-solving aspects in Zelda for the Wii U. He spoke out about which types of puzzles he prefers, standard puzzles or ones that involve a “trick.”

In a recent interview with Game Informer, Eiji Aonuma hinted at a possible multiplayer function in the next Zelda entry for the Wii U. When speaking about Hyrule Warriors, he implied that it will have this same two-player functionality and gave us small details about how it will be executed.
In a recent interview with Eiji Aonuma, it is confirmed that the new Zelda for Wii U will not be using the same hand-holding tactics used in other Zelda games. Many criticisms of Skyward Sword centered around the fact that before getting into the game, players had to undergo several hours of introductions and tutorials. This interview confirms that the new Zelda game will take on a new direction; tutorials will not be overdone and controls will be much more self-explanatory.
Only a few days after the Triforce Clock pre-order bonus from the premium box set of Hyrule Warriors was revealed, we now have images of the other two pre-order bonuses: the Hero’s Scarf and the Treasure Chest.

Soon after the Zelda U trailer was shown at Nintendo’s Digital Event, Mr. Aonuma left us with a comment that left us Zelda fans reeling; “No one said that was Link”. Across all forms of social media, fans were going nuts, believing that this new character to be Zelda, Colin, a child of Link, or just some unnamed female. Well, after all that theorizing, it turns out it was a joke!
The latest trailer of the upcoming Hyrule Warriors from Techmo Koei has finally surfaced today at E3. This time we get a look at the gameplay of Princess Zelda, Midna, and Impa. We even get a few glimpses at some of the items they get to use in game and a few special moves. Keep watching because near the end we get a chance to see yet another familiar face.
Today on June 10th at Nintendo’s E3 conference we have been shown an epic trailer concerning the 2015 Wii U Zelda title, which remains unnamed. Along with many more awesome titles shown including Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo showed us a first look at the new Hyrule Field, the look of Link, and described how they wanted to go back to the roots of their franchise.

Nintendo has recently updated their Official Japanese A Link Between Worlds site and with the new update come all new peeks at the contents of the game. Within the latest update we get two new videos covering some new unrevealed content. The first video displays the gameplay in various locations and shows a few portals between Hyrule and Lorule. The second video shows the introductory story for the game however it is in Japanese. Also included in the update is a side-by-side map of both Hyrule and Lorule together.
Ever since The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past were ported over to the Game Boy Advance, with the original Zelda game making an appearance on Nintendo’s e-Reader, I have been intrigued and excited at the prospects of playing all of the Legend of Zelda games on nearly every console, be it portable or home-based.
We then received Ocarina of Time along with a Master Quest version as a pre-order bonus incentive for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It looked as if Nintendo was going to keep adding content to it’s back catalogue of Zelda games: The Legend of Zelda got updated translations; Zelda II got a “minorly-major” upgrade (which has since been removed for the 3DS) with the experience points remaining where they were when or if Link died on his quest (also, they removed the Water Dungeon shortcut); and A Link to the Past added the Four Sword Dungeon and enabled Link to do a whirlwind slash.
As we move into the holiday season of video games, we are in need of some new volunteer writers and contributors. We have a wide range of positions that we can use help on and they are detailed within this post. While we could use some help here at Zelda Dungeon as we build towards the release of A Link Between Worlds next month, and potentially a 2014 release of Zelda Wii U, the help we need extends to our network website, GenGAME. Go ahead and make the jump to get a fill break down of our current needs.
I know I said I was taking a break, but I had enough spare time to write up this news post to celebrate some recent milestones achieved by our very own Zelda Dungeon Wiki! Some of these announcements are a tad late due to the recent server move, but, better late than never!
On October 22nd, the Wiki celebrated it’s second birthday with a server move that should hopefully run things a little more smoothly. And as an early birthday surprise, a few weeks ago, we broke the 4,000 article mark! Currently, we now have 4,083 articles, almost 10,000 images, and over 25 million page views! And now you can share pages that you find interesting with your friends around the world with the recent addition of social media links near the bottom of the sidebar!
In closing, I should also mention that with the upcoming release of A Link Between Worlds, we could do with some more editors for the wiki so that we are able to have extensive info on characters, locations, dungeons, items, etc. as soon as possible after the game is released. If you are interested in contributing to everybody’s favorite wiki for The Legend of Zelda, just go to the wiki’s front page to find out how you can help!
The infamous Zelda tech demo that was shown at SpaceWorld 2000 to show off the capabilities of the GameCube received a rather strong fan reaction. It caused a lot of people to suspect a more realistic looking game was in the works but then we ended up with The Wind Wakerwhich wasn’t particularly well received. The Wind Waker ended up being a great game and it sounds like the HD remake has made the game even better. It then became apparent that Twilight Princess was made a much darker game due to the strong reaction to the GameCube tech demo but it has also been revealed that, despite all that praise, series director Eiji Aonuma didn’t agree with what everyone was saying.
Hey all, I’d like to apologize for the site problems the last 48 hours. We’ve had some sluggish load times ever since we moved servers back in late July and to remedy this solution, we are in the process of moving Zelda Dungeon to its own dedicated server, away from other network websites. During the site move, we’ve run into a number of issues and we are working to solve them one by one. While the site is online at the moment, we may have periodic downtime over the next few hours or days. The goal is to have the server up and running in perfect condition as we move towards the launch of A Link Between Worlds next month.
