Heart Tracking App Available on iOS

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 11.04.00 AMThe Legend of Zelda series is infamous for having many goodies to be discovered along your journey, and heart pieces  are one of those things that many of us are desperate to hunt down. Guides like what you can find here at Zelda Dungeon are immensely helpful in those searches, but now you have a new tool at your disposal! Trident Group has created an app to help you not only track down all of those important little heart pieces but it even helps you keep track of the ones you have already found! The app separates the heart pieces by game and gives you the total count of pieces you must collect in each one. Once you have chosen a specific title the app then gives you the list of all the locations where each piece can be found, after you have selected the location it provides you with the specifics of exactly where you can find the piece in question, and any special requirements there might be to acquire them. Once you have located your prize you can use the app to save the ones you have found. This really helps you keep track of all the heart pieces you have already located, and the ones that are still eluding you. The app just released this month an is available on the app store for free.

Gossip Stone: What Method of Transportation Do You Prefer?

198742-headerThroughout almost every Zelda game, Link has always had a companion that could take him from point A to point B. He could even just spin in circles, if he really wanted to- either way his companion acted as his way of transportation. And as we know, we’ve seen quite a few companions Link can use as transportation- so the question is, which do you prefer? Do you prefer galloping throughout Hyrule, or sailing above it? Perhaps even flying above the clouds? We’ll get more into that right after the jump!

Akira Himekawa’s New Manga is Probably Twilight Princess

himebo Akira Himekawa recently announced that they’d be producing another full length Legend of Zelda manga, however, they did not reveal off of what game the manga would be based. Well, Brian Gabriel of Hammerspace has deducted that the likeliest candidate is Twilight Princess. Himekawa had released scrapped concept art for a Twilight Princess comic some years ago, and looking at the silhouette of Link in the recent announcement picture, it’s clear that the design was pulled straight from the Twilight Princess concept art, sans Wolf Link.
 
 
This could be purely coincidental, chosen for convenience, or the silhouette may not actually be a match, but it seems way too precise to me. You be the judge, compare the pieces after the jump!

Culture Shock: The Origins of Epona

Epona and LinkDespite appearing in only three core Zelda games as a mount (and in The Minish Cap as an NPC owned by Malon and Talon), Epona has left quite the impression on fans of The Legend of Zelda. She’s a way to move around quickly, circumvent certain obstacles and allows Link to engage in awesome battles in Twilight Princess. In the three adventures she appeared in she has been a faithful companion of Link, helping him save Hyrule and Termina, in two cases on nothing but a diet of carrots. Of all of Link’s red animal companions (Dimitri, the King of Red Lions, Link’s Loftwing) she is by far the most beloved of the bunch. But is there any real-life basis to her name and what she can do? The YouTube channel The Game Theorists take a look at this, with the latest video in their Culture Shock series. Watch the video after the break!

Gossip Stone: Should there be an Actual Economy in Zelda?

rfr In the fantasy world of Hyrule, not much concedes to the restrictions of reality. But with Zelda Wii U’s shift into open world gaming, it wouldn’t be unthinkable for a more real economy to present itself. Modern open world games are sometimes more realistic than what the Legend of Zelda is used to, and adapting the series to fit around a true economy is one way for it to be more realistic without damaging the integrity of its fantasy elements. Fluctuating item pricing and availability due to supply and demand or the socioeconomic state of a shop’s location could add more structure to the economy.

Though this may change the usual abundance of rupees in Hyrule, it could also allow for Link’s different interactions to improve his chances of earning money or paying lower prices.
