The Legend of Zelda series is full of incredible music. From iconic character and location themes to epic battle music, the series has it all. Despite the series’ popularity, the dungeon themes are some of the most under appreciated/rated music from the franchise. These themes fill the player with a sense of mystery, foreboding, and suspense. The music is a huge part of what makes a Zelda dungeon so intense and exciting. In this arrangement by Super Guitar Brothers, the…

A true staple of the Legend of Zelda series is the Rupee.  Green, blue, red or purple and other colors besides — the Rupee is the currency of Hyrule and is sometimes the key to allowing Link to move forward in-game.  A perfect example of this would be when Link must acquire the Deku Shield from the shop in Kokiri Forest in order to gain access to the Great Deku Tree in Ocarina of Time Rupees have appeared in almost every…

The remix we’re looking at today is of the Tal Tal Heights theme, which is produced by Vector U, in…

Whether you agree with it or not, there are those times where you just can’t help but to wonder how such skilled gamers pulled it off.

After completing our playthrough of The Legend of Zelda’s second quest, Mases and I are taking on A Link Between Worlds. This time around I’m leading the charge while Mases will be providing some knowledgeable commentary. Not only that, but I will have to play this game on hero mode, which will add some spice to the run! In our newest episode we scale Death Mountain on our way to the Tower of Hero. If you’d like to know when a new episode…

ReDeads. They’ve been present in just about every 3D Zelda title, to varying degrees of creepiness. One scream is all it takes to petrify both Link and the player, but they were noticeably absent in Breath of the Wild. In fact, there was a lack of any creepy area in the game (if you don’t count the whole map as being creepy). This got me thinking, where could Nintendo take ReDeads next? Of course, it all depends heavily on the art style of…

Link’s Awakening is currently the recipient of a surge of attention since its announcement for Nintendo Switch. Hundreds of reflection, interpretation, and speculation articles have appeared across a variety of gaming sites. The game has also seen an uptick in the number of musical covers in a variety of genres. This Lofi/Chill cover of “Sword Search” by Qumu is an intriguing musical cover. This version captures the spirit of the original song, while also enriching it with new and distinct…

We break it all down AND THEN deliver a deep dive all into the fabled game itself… TINGLE’S ROSY RUPEELAND! Yes, Andy has finally finished it (with 100% completion to boot!)…

Greetings, Zelda fans! We’re kicking off another Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest right now, so why not take part? It’s been a little while since we’ve heard anything new about Link’s Awakening in Nintendo Switch, but that hasn’t stopped me from getting suitably excited. In fact, I’ve decided to play through the original version in preparation for the remake. To commemorate my revisit to Koholint Island, let’s take a look at another screenshot from Link’s Awakening Switch. Last Week’s Contest: We…

We already have a pretty wild year in store for us as Zelda fans. Even with all of the games we have coming our way, a lot of people have been speculating on when the next big release in the series will be. In this week’s Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss the possibility of the game coming out next year. This came from the news of Monolith Soft hiring to work on said game. Do you think it’s almost…
