Welcome… to Fall Brawl! Summer is over, but don’t fret: for the third year, the Fall Brawl Character Contest is back. 2019 saw Midna take home the top prize. 2020 saw Skull Kid squeak out a thrilling last minute victory. This year, the field is wide open and a NEW Champion will be crowned. The premise is simple: 64 Zelda characters enter, and in a spin on a regular NCAA-style tournament, these characters compete in matches throughout the bracket until…

In 2017, Breath of the Wild introduced us to a few new Zelda characters, the Champions of Hyrule, Mipha, Urbosa, Revali, and Daruk. Most of the Champion’s tales where very fleshed out through their memories with Link that we see via flashbacks, through their respective journals, and accounts of those who are still living in Hyrule 100 years later. I’ve played through Breath of the Wild a few times now and it seems to me that one of the Champions…

Hey! Listen! Over the years, Link has been accompanied by some lovely companions. From fairies to talking objects to princesses, these companions have given support to both our hero and ourselves. Now Zelda Dungeon’s own Tier Force Heroes have taken on the task of ranking each of these into the definitive ranking of Zelda companions. Considering a companion only to be a character that accompanies Link the entire game (meaning not Epona or other supporting characters like Saria), they gathered…

One of my favorite aspects of Skyward Sword is Skyloft. The picturesque city above the clouds serves as Link’s home base over the course of his adventure, as our hero often returns to rest, purchase supplies, upgrade his gear, and interact with the many friendly faces that live there. It’s easy to get sidetracked in Skyloft. Most of the game’s secrets and side quests lie within the city or in the surrounding Sky. Whether you’re opening up newly awakened Goddess…

Earlier today, Playtonic Games and Castle Pixel released a trailer announcing Blossom Tales 2: The Minotour Prince. The original game, Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King, is a charming Zelda-like that was released in 2017 on Steam and Nintendo Switch. While taking inspiration from 2D Zelda‘s like A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening, I’ve heard many people say Blossom Tales still stands out in its own right. I have not played the game for myself, but it does look…

It’s hard to believe that two months have passed since nearly two dozen of our staff members congregated in a basement with twelve monitors, hundreds of cords, and far too many jelly beans. From July 24th to 31st, the Zelda Dungeon team and the dutiful audience members who watched on Twitch worked together to raise a total of $14,051 USD for charity. The non-profit organization we raised money for, called Game to Grow, utilizes video games as therapy to help…

Aside from more information about Wave 2 of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity‘s Expansion Pass and the announcement of Nintendo 64 games coming to Switch Online (including Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask), there was no other Zelda news coming out of today’s Nintendo Direct… at least outside of Japan. During the Japanese Nintendo Direct live stream, there was additional Zelda news revealed: a physical version of Breath of the Wild, paired with all of the game’s DLC, will be…

In an exciting and somewhat shocking move, Nintendo announced via the September Direct that wireless versions of the Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis controllers will be available for purchase. Nintendo will be launching the Expansion Pack option for its Nintendo Switch Online membership, granting users access to classic N64 and SEGA games. The Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis controllers are listed as $49.99 USD, with Nintendo promising more order information and availability announcements to come soon. What we do know,…
