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. In the coming hours we are going to be transferring both the walkthrough pages and the wiki pages to use the brand new layout that we have recently launched. 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.
The server move that we announced a few days ago is now complete. With that we have since moved on to phase two of the website revamp and this involves upgrading our Zelda Wiki. The big change comes for mobile viewers as the wiki is now completely mobile friendly. We are still working out the kinks and the display format, but the wiki is now fully functional on mobile phones. Furthermore, later this week when the brand new website layout is released, we will soon after have a corresponding new layout on the Wiki for desktop viewers.
With the Wiki back online, we are resuming the wiki giveaway that we started a few days back. While it never technically ended, editing was cut off for a brief period during the server move, but everything is now functional once again. For more information, be sure to check out the initial post about the wiki contest giveaway.
Here at Zelda Dungeon, we will be moving servers beginning around 6pm US Central Time today. During this time period, we may go offline for awhile. There will be no new posts made on the front page, and both the Wiki and Forums will be disabled for editing. We hope to be back up and running on Saturday early in the morning.
This will be the first in a number of changes happening here at Zelda Dungeon over the next few weeks. We have a brand new website design in the works, and we will also be making notable upgrades to both our Wiki and Forum software. If there are any hiccups and the site is not accessible, we will be updating our Facebook Page with progress reports.
It is a really exciting time here at Zelda Dungeon as we are gearing towards a number of big changes at the website, including a brand new site design that will be launched later this month. In preparation for this move, along with a number of other site changes, we are looking to fill some holes among the site staff. We are in need of some additional writers for the front page of Zelda Dungeon, including writers to post news pieces, as well as editorials.
Over at our Zelda Wiki, we have recently surpassed the 4600 article mark and we are full steam ahead, onward to 5000. Currently we are in the process of filling up much of our Hyrule Warriors content, including our elaborate Badge Market guide, and our upcoming Adventure Mode guide. Additionally, we are polishing up much of our Majora’s Mask content in preparation for the release of Majora’s Mask 3D this coming Spring.
In order to help improve our Wiki and making it the best encyclopedia of Zelda information online, we need your help. We are looking for additional editors and it takes just seconds to Register at the Wiki. Once registered, all you have to do is make at least 25 edits and you will win a free Link Plush Doll! Simple as that. Make the jump for some additional information.

During the Nintendo Direct today, we got some interesting news about Ultimate NES Remix – the NES Remix port for the 3DS.

It looks like we are going to once again meet with a terrible fate. A brilliant, terrible fate. That’s right, Majora’s mask is getting the same 3D treatment as Ocarina of Time!

Previously in Secrets of the CD-i Part 1, we talked about the cutscene designs and how some of that train wreck came to be. Now it’s time to talk about the sprites of enemies and just how accurate they are to the beloved games of yore. Click the jump below for more.
As is natural with a new game, a glitch has been found in Hyrule Warriors by Tumblr user presidentlaghosta. This glitch features Princess Zelda singing her lullaby while she uses Lana’s summoning gate. The link to the video can be found post-jump!
