Despite being very different from many other dungeons in the Zelda series, the Divine Beasts did maintain Zelda tradition by having a reward for completing each dungeon. In addition to the heart container, the player also receives a blessing or magic spell from each of the four respective champions. These blessings (Urbosa’s Fury, Mipha’s Grace, Daruk’s Protection, and Revali’s Gale) are all extremely powerful spells that give Link new options for combat and navigation. Revali’s Gale, which create an updraft…

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), perhaps the largest annual event in video games, is set to return as an in-person event in June 2023, after the COVID-19 pandemic forced drastic changes to the expo over the past few years, including cancellations in both 2020 & 2022 and an online-only event in 2021. However, according to a new report by IGN, E3’s glorious return to the Los Angeles Convention Center may be without the industry’s three biggest players. Multiple industry sources…

Greetings, all you Zelda fans! Are you ready to kick off another excursion into Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest? After putting in a lot of work for last week’s Dungeon Week festivities, I’ve felt it necessary to kick back a little bit the past few days. And while searching my contest folder for this week’s featured image, I found a screenshot from The Wind Waker that perfectly reflects my relaxed state of mind. Now, let’s get this contest started before…

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is often regarded not only as one of the best Zelda games, but as one of the best games period. This is in part thanks to its rich world and compact, evocative narrative — which, according to one Dungeons & Dragons expert, sets it up to be a model D&D campaign. Baron de Ropp of Dungeon Masterpiece, a YouTube channel focused on “critically analyzing gaming systems,” breaks down the structure of Ocarina of…

The Zelda series is full of colorful characters from all walks of life. Some of these strong personalities could benefit from a bit of professional help letting go of their hangups or fitting more comfortably into social circles. Ironically, the Zelda characters who need therapy the most are those who might be most resistant to it: Ganondorf, Zant, and Vaati to name a few of the biggest contenders. But there many other strange characters who might not be too keen…

Since Super Mario Maker‘s release in 2015 (and probably since the original Zelda), fan’s have longed for a Zelda Dungeon Maker. Clever puzzles, unique enemies, and intricate room arrangements—the ability for fans to try their own hand at these and other aspects of level design would make a Zelda Dungeon Maker wildly popular. Sadly, after a brief tease of the concept in bonus material in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (2019), Nintendo appears to have abandoned such an idea. Recently, YouTube content creator…

Dungeons and Zelda go hand in hand. They are like Link and Princess Zelda, Kafei and Anju, and Revali and his pride — one would not be complete without the other! Throughout the past 37 (whoa!) years of Zelda, we have seen a plethora of unique dungeons and temples in each entry in the series. These dungeons have always been a staple throughout each adventure in Hyrule, and they often pose challenges for our favorite green-clad hero, giving him the…

Tier Force Heroes is back for 2023! Zelda Dungeon greats Gooey Fame, Corey Richmond, and Skull Kid Nico are here to end Dungeon Week right, ranking Zelda‘s Big Keys, whether for boss rooms, new dungeon levels, or item chests, found throughout the series. Starting with The Legend of Zelda and wandering between different games in the series, the Tier Force Heroes crew examines each key’s pros and cons, from the sprite and official designs to the key’s utility and the way…

Breath of the Wild is filled with stunning landmarks and locations that can elicit an emotional response from the player. Whether it is the sun-drenched Gerudo Town, the frigid majesty of the Hebra Mountains, or the tranquil Zora’s Domain, the game is full of inspiring and imposing landmarks. Despite the numerous honorable candidates for the most important and iconic landmark in the game, one location stands above the rest: Hyrule Castle. The decaying ruin is the geographical and narrative heart…
