For the last couple of months, I’ve been playing Oracle of Seasons off and on and there’s something I’ve come to realize: I really enjoy using Roc’s Cape. Roc’s Feather was an interesting item in its own right, but the enhanced mobility that is offered when using the cape makes it superior in every way. After recognizing this, I’ve started to wonder how Roc’s Cape could work on a console title of the Zelda series and for that matter, if it is doomed to forever remain exclusive to handheld games.

How well do you think Roc’s Cape would function in a future Zelda title? Hit the jump to view my thoughts! Read more…

voice-acting-zelda

One of the most controversial and polarized opinions on the Zelda franchise is whether or not Nintendo should implement voice acting. With the emergence of the Wii U and an opportunity to start fresh on the direction of the Zelda games, will Nintendo use this to try something new? Most fans would agree that players do not like drastic change, but is this change big enough to either introduce another direction of Zelda or ruin its reputation? Hit the jump to vote and hear more!

Volunteers Needed: We Want YOU For Zelda Dungeon

Mases HagopianSeptember 1st, 2014 by Mases Hagopian

Volunteers-NeededInterested in helping write for the front page of Zelda Dungeon? With the pending release of Hyrule Warriors, we are looking for a few helping hands. In particular, we are looking to bring on board a few news writers, as well as writers to help with additional front-page projects we have in the pipeline. If you are interested in helping out, you can contact me directly on Skype to setup an interview. (Username: armochicken13).

At this time there is no age requirement to join the team, but I will require a sample piece of writing to assure the quality of writing is up to our standards. We look forward to hearing from you.


22 MooshSo far we have seen that Link has access to a horse in Zelda U—presumably Epona—and can ride across an open field freely. As of now, we haven’t seen any other potential methods of transport; the footage we have seen is so minimal that the lack of information doesn’t matter because the possibilities for the game are, for the moment, endless.

hyrule-warriors-ghirahim-vs-link

Zelda games typically adhere to a certain formula and style of play: You explore the environment around you, collect powerful weapons and upgrades, traverse dungeons while solving puzzles, and they usually end with you saving the world, or even worlds in some cases. However, the release of Hyrule Warriors has illustrated that Nintendo may finally be coming out of their comfort zone and are willing to try radically different things with their existing IPs. In fact, it’s fair to say that Hyrule Warriors is more a Dynasty Warriors game than a Zelda game.

Could this be the start of an emerging trend? Is this something you’d like to see more of? Hit the jump to see what I have to say about it. Read more…
