If you live in the UK or Europe and have some My Nintendo Silver Points that you haven’t used, it could be time to cash in! The UK My Nintendo Store recently added a poster set featuring official artwork from Nintendo 64 titles! An Ocarina of Time poster is available, alongside posters for Mario Kart 64 and Star Fox 64! The set costs 500 Silver Points, plus a shipping fee. Sadly, the set is not currently available outside of Europe…

Every once in awhile we get spoiled in a Zelda game with an item or ability that almost makes the game too easy. I usually find such things to be a lot of fun if there was effort in getting them; like the trading sequence for the boomerang in Link’s Awakening DX, or gathering all the masks and then challenging the moon children to games to get the Fierce Deity’s Mask in Majora’s Mask. Even if there was no challenge…

Finding all 900 Koroks in Breath of the Wild is quite an impressive feat, but collectively drawing 900 Koroks sounds like an even more ambitious goal, surely. Well, the Zelda Creators community recently announced an art collaboration among artists to do just that: draw Koroks until 900 are illustrated!  Spurred by TC (@VirgoTriangulum) as a project for Twitter Korok Day (any 9th day of a month) and launched by Zelda Creators, the hope is to get enough artists signed up…

If you ventured in the correct direction when first beginning Breath of the Wild you likely ended up at a Horse Stable as your were traveling to Kakariko Village. If you did you likely met an NPC who told you about taming a horse as your trusty mount. If you’re like me you probably met a few horses along the way that you began to cherish. You maybe even wished for their return from Malanya if they met their untimely…

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a highly divergent Zelda game that many long-time fans have been reticent to check out. If you’re looking to give it a try, now would be a great opportunity. Age of Calamity is currently on sale at a 33% discount from both Walmart and Amazon! As is standard for first-party Nintendo titles, Age of Calamity still retains its full release price and likely will for the foreseeable future. Thankfully, the current sale reduces that hefty $59.99  USD price tag down…

Sounds effects from video games are nothing new in sports arenas. Whether it is the Mario warp pipe sound effect when a player gets walked in baseball or the coin sound effect when a player makes a free throw in basketball, staffers and musicians in stadiums have been using these beloved sounds to their advantage for years. Many of the fans going to games know these sounds, and they enjoy hearing them across the loudspeakers. These sound effects add texture…

Hello, everyone! What say you to another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? We’ve been highlighting Skyward Sword screenshots over the past few weeks, so it just seems right to keep the good times rolling. This week’s image was actually a request from one of our talented contest entrants (I hope I grabbed the right one), and it features Zelda using her mighty finger to strike fear in the hearts of bullies everywhere.   Last Week’s Contest: We broke…

Twilight Princess isn’t my all-time-favorite Zelda game, but it is near the top of my list. Apart from the cinematic dungeon design and sheer, epic mood of this game, one of my favorite additions was the Hidden Skills you learn from the Hero’s Shade. Most of the time, with the exception of Breath of the Wild, Link’s sword combat is tied to just a few signature moves that are pretty basic and easy to pull off in each game. So I absolutely loved…

The original installment of The Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Entertainment System is quite challenging by modern standards. Those with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription can experience the classic for the first time (or for those of us born in the golden era — a trip to nostalgia town). No matter a player’s level of experience, they’re likely to face a game over before the end of their journey. For those of us who have — um — experienced it…

The Zelda series is known for its incredible boss fights and spectacular final battles. One of the elements that can help make a boss fight feel special is a spectacular musical theme. For example, while Dark Beast Ganon stands out as one of the lackluster final battles in the series, the atmosphere that the music creates is incredible. The fast tempo, wild piano runs, and echoes of Breath of the Wild‘s the main theme help make “Dark Beast Ganon” one…
