The Zelda series is rich with memorable Side Quests that bring us joy, Anju’s Anguish from Majora’s Mask; From the Ground Up from Breath of The Wild; The Biggoron Sword Trading Sequence from Ocarina of Time, are only a few that come to mind. We remember these Side Quests fondly because they had a worthwhile payoff, whether it was a cool item by the time we completed them, or by virtue of remarkable narrative depth and character interaction. But then…

Getting to the Temple in The Adventure of Link is a testament unto itself. What captures the feel the most when entering this dungeon is the theme that plays during your journey inside those depths. The cover we’re looking at today reminds us that even the most calming tone, can still remain the tensest. This jazz cover of the Temple Theme from The Adventure of Link comes to us from J-MUSIC Ensemble. Spanning a whole eclectic array of different arrangements and covers,…

Romani Ranch is a small ranch community located off of Termina Field, home to Cremia, Romani, and a bunch of cows. The location serves a halfway point for Link’s quest in Majora’s Mask, as the path from Milk Road is originally blocked by a boulder and Link can only blow it up once he obtains a Powder Keg after conquering the game’s second dungeon. In addition to an opportunity to finally save Link’s loyal steed Epona, Romani Ranch is also home…

Howdy! Welcome back to Artists of Legend again this week! Summer is almost upon us, but for now, it’s Sidequest Week here on Zelda Dungeon! What have you thought so far of all the different perspectives of the optional but (usually) enjoyable parts of Zelda games? We’ll get back to Sidequest Week after we share some of the fantastic artwork that’s been submitted to us. So, let’s get right on into everything! Submitted Artwork Last week, we asked you to create artwork…

When I first started playing The Wind Waker as a kid, I followed the player’s guide pretty religiously — at least when it came to the story and collectible items. I remember skimming over the parts that mentioned anything about a Tingle Tuner since I didn’t have a Gameboy Advance of my own, so it represented a mechanic I had no interest in. The reward for the Tingle Statue side quest in The Wind Waker isn’t the worst (you get Rupees…

“Zelda’s Lullaby” is one of the most beautiful songs in Nintendo’s musical catalog. This soothing song has been a favorite since its first appearance in A Link to the Past. While the song debuted in 1992, many players know it better from its appearance in Ocarina of Time. This jazz arrangement of “Zelda’s Lullaby”  from self described “video game jazz musicians” The Consouls personifies the concept of “easy listening” in the best ways imaginable. The song opens with a gentle,…

Despite the imminent threat of darkness that plagues Twilight Princess’ Hyrule, most of the game’s side content is relatively lighthearted. That’s by no means a knock against the game, though. From the delightful zaniness of the Flight By Fowl and Fruit Pop Flight Challenge mini-games to the awe-inspiring serenity of Iza’s Rapid Ride and Hena’s Fishing Hole, Twilight Princess boasts some of my favorite side quests in the series. Agitha’s bug collect-a-thon speaks to the Banjo-Kazooie fan in me, while…

There seems no end to the customization afforded to players by mods. A recent tool by modder Max Bebök (known as HailToDodongo) allows for the creation of custom maps and shrines in PC versions of Breath of the Wild. A video by BSoD Gaming showcases some stages made using this mod, including one in which Link explores the Bob-omb Battlefield level from Mario 64. This is the first time a mod of this kind has been made for the game,…

The first gameplay trailer has just dropped for the upcoming Zelda-like game Baldo. Developed by Italian studio NAPS Team (the folks behind the Gekido series), this gorgeous action adventure game began life as an unfinished Game Boy Advance title and has since been reworked in the Unity engine for a release on modern systems. With puzzle and combat features taken right out of Zelda and beautiful cel-shaded visuals inspired by Studio Ghibli films, the inspirations behind this game are ever…

The Zelda series has always featured a host of diverse side quests. Ever since Link’s Awakening, one of the optional quests Nintendo has decided to give players is the task of wandering the world and collecting a bunch of random items that are mostly useless to you. These items could be seashells, little emblems showing that you killed certain enemies, the souls of ghosts, or the little golden poos of a bunch of plants. A Link Between Worlds even has a quest…
