zdmarathonLTTP-nowplayingEach Summer we run our annual Zelda Dungeon Marathon, but coming up soon we have something rather special. Starting at 6am US Central Time on Saturday April 12th, Zelda Dungeon will be hosting the One Man Mini-Marathon. Throughout the event, I, Mases Hagopian, have set a goal of playing through the first five Legend of Zelda titles all the way through, one after another. Starting very early in the morning, I will begin my journey with the original Legend of Zelda. This will be followed by the Adventure of Link, a Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening, and then Ocarina of Time.

The playthroughs will be complete playthroughs in the sense that I will not be using the wide variety of available glitches. Notably, such glitches are available which allow gamers to play through some of these multiple hour-games in just a matter of minutes. All in all, I’m expecting the event to last somewhere around 21 hours.

UntitledA man named Ben Purdy has created a strange version of The Legend of Zelda that looks even more ancient than the NES version. You can go to his website, and play the whole game right in your internet browser. Link, rupees, enemies and most other things are just one pixel, and the rather awkward field of view could prove to make things a bit difficult, but it is certainly worth a shot.

Gust_BellowsMasahiro Sakurai has posted yet another Zelda-related Super Smash Bros. screenshot, and this one has some very interesting points. Apparently, the Gust Bellows from Skyward Sword will be an item, but looking at what Sakurai left as a caption, perhaps there are more cool things to be seen in the near future.

Princess_Zelda_(Oracle_of_Ages_and_Oracle_of_Seasons)Many people who have never played a Zelda game are confused about the name of the protagonist. It is true that it would have made more sense for Link’s name to be included in the title, however, Zelda has to be a pretty important character to have the game named after her, even though she is only seen less than half of the time in most of the games. Unfortunately, Zelda is rarely recognized as the brilliant, beautiful, complex character that she actually is. She is seen as just a normal princess who spends her time stuck in a castle, waiting for her turn to be rescued. At a glance, it would seem that she does fit into this princess stereotype, considering that most of the other female leads in video games are harsh, aggressive, women of war. But on closer inspection, it can be made clear that Zelda falls into neither category. Hit the jump to see why!

Master SwordThere are several items that appear in almost every game in the Zelda series and the most iconic is probably the Master Sword. Its appearance has changed several times since it was first introduced in A Link to the Past and its abilities have also varied from game to game but it’s still a staple for smiting evil. In the PS4 exclusive inFamous: Second Son, which was only recently released, the Blade of Evil’s Bane seems to make a surprise appearance.

The Legend of Zelda - Fire and Ice Prophecies (merged)Back in January of 2012, a rumor went around concerning the upcoming Zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS, which was, at the time, yet to be announced as A Link Between Worlds. The rumor was that not one but two Zelda games were in development for Nintendo 3DS. At the time, English titles had not been given, but the Japanese working titles were The Legend of Zelda: Fire Prophecy and The Legend of Zelda: Ice Prophecy. However, after the success of the re-release of the Oracle games on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, rumors have surfaced that Nintendo is continuing with this idea, and that the re-release of Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages was to see if consumers would be open to the idea.
