I’ve always loved looking at the official artwork and concept art for Zelda games. Groups of the games have their own unique art styles that sometimes aren’t very apparent from the in-game art style, which also can have it’s own unique renderings: from pixel art, to attempts at realism, as well as cel-shading. Overall, with both the game art and official artwork, I find myself sometimes wondering what the future could hold for this series. So what styles do we…

While I absolutely love lo-fi remixes for everyday listening, working, and studying, sometimes I prefer classical renditions of my favorite tracks when I’m in a more thoughtful or reclusive mood. This month, GameChops helped fulfill my need for classically reimagined Zelda tracks with their new album Zelda & Piano. GameChops is a listener-funded record label that licenses video game remixes and covers. Some of the most recent GameChops-licensed Zelda and Zelda-inclusive albums we’ve covered here at Zelda Dungeon include Ocarina…

At the time of its release in 2006, Twilight Princess was a departure from the cartoony graphics and light-heartedness of The Wind Waker, landing closer to Majora’s Mask with its tone and dark, mature storyline. In many respects this works to Twilight Princess‘ advantage, with Zant imprisoning Princess Zelda and Hyrule overtaken in the twilight, it allows for a unique opportunity to approach the story differently. Most notably, Link allies himself with a group called The Resistance who are working…

I love coming across relaxing instrumental covers of my favorite video game music. I sometimes use it to unwind after a long day, it’s also not uncommon for me to pop in my earbuds during my day to get a little bit of escapism out of the music. While listening to this piano and flute cover of “Ballad of the Windfish” performed by cover artist MusicMike512, featuring Madalyn Music, I knew this would fit perfectly into my rotation of video…

Rain got ya sliding down? Still waiting on Revali’s Gale to recharge? Worry not, because this Breath of the Wild fan mod solves all of that. This mod, from the talent of sofiaharley, allows the player to soar to their heart’s content. This ability comes in the form of a new Rune known both as “Flying Rune” and Cyclos — perhaps a nod to the soaring deity from The Wind Waker? Regardless, this Rune works by letting players fly with each…

Zelda Dungeon is happy to officially announce this year’s Zelda Dungeon Marathon!

With Breath of the Wild 2 slated to release in Spring 2023, we are — fingers crossed — less than a year away from Link’s next adventure. However, it’s unclear as to when Nintendo will lift the curtain on this title. Although we’ve technically seen a couple snippets of gameplay, I think we’re all ready for a proper unveiling — not only a title reveal, but also a significantly more extensive look at the game in action. Despite our collective…

After a week off sick, the gang are back together to answer your fan submitted questions! We asked you to head to Twitter and give us questions, and you delivered big time! Has the fervor around the Zelda timeline died out in recent years? Is there any way the corpse shown in the sequel trailer is Demise? Are the days of new, top down Zelda games over? What’s a way to mix breakable weapons and classic Zelda items? What were…

Out of a relative dry spell of Nintendo news, a Nintendo Direct Mini is now fast approaching. Due June 28th at 9 am EST, a new Direct Mini will feature roughly 25 minutes of information on games from third-party developers. The announcement of this Direct confirms a rumor that there would be a Direct Mini on June 28th, while disconfirming an older rumor of a Direct on June 29th. With this Direct focusing on third-party developers, the chances of any…

With no E3 and the fate of the next Nintendo Direct uncertain, things may seem rather dry for Zelda fans; though that needn’t be the case with the now-running Summer Games Done Quick 2022. Summer Games Done Quick, or SGDQ, is an annual speedrunning marathon which raises money for charity. SGDQ, the sister event to the annual Awesome Games Done Quick, is organized by Games Done Quick, which has been raising money through speedruns for over 10 years. This year’s…
