Flute and Saxophone Cover of Outset Island Theme

Screen Shot 2015-08-23 at 8.37.07 AMThere have been many very inspired covers of various songs from The Wind Waker of late, and today we have another fantastic little tune for you. The YouTube channel, MusicByPedro has recently uploaded a new cover inspired by The Wind Waker’s Outset Island using a flute and saxophone. The YouTube channel specializes in Game Covers, Pop Covers, Parodies, as well as original songs. The upbeat tempo of the Outset Island theme lend very well to the instruments chosen for this cover and I think it might even make the tune even more peppy than usual — if that is even possible.

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!

Zelda Oil Paintings

hWQt2Vk It takes some talent to paint something Zelda related and make it look as if it could actually be a screenshot from one of the games. That’s basically what reddit user benthunderbolt did with a few of his oil paintings that he shared with fellow Zelda fans over on Imgur. This one here is of the opening screen from Ocarina of Time. It’s so well done, and so identical to the real deal, I can almost see Link and Epona trotting over Hyrule field as if I were about to start playing!

Art Styles Over the Ages – an Analysis

Wind Waker LinkThe art style of each Zelda game can turn into a hotly debated topic; while some think that Twilight Princess has a dark and mature visual tone, others see it as dark and drab. I believe that in these debates, the most important aspects of the art are lost, namely how well they mesh with or add to the rest of the game.

Zelda Inspired Stained Glass Lamp

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 11.31.11 AMI have recently discovered that I apparently have an obsession with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, which is actually pretty humorous as it was probably one of the Zelda titles I was looking forward to playing the least. But for some reason, the moment I entered that cell shaded colorful world I fell in love! I would not say it is my favorite but it is definitely high up on the list, and I am always looking for ways to show my love for one of my favorite video game franchises. That is exactly how I came across an Etsy shop named VGameCraft. The shop is based out of Mexico and creates several different types of items, including customer orders. But what caught my eye was an enchantingly colorful, handmade stained glass lamp depicting Princess Zelda. The detail and the colors used are pretty fantastic and the price is pretty reasonable too!

Update: My obsession with The Wind Waker of late has clearly clouded my vision. Thanks to the commenters that reminded me that although both Zelda’s appear similar, this is in fact from Minish Cap. My excitement to get this out into the world made me have a momentary lapse of insanity! This now makes me feel that although I have fond memories of The Minish Cap and think it is a very underrated title, I am now inspired to play through it again as it has been a long time!
