Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Latest Updates

Throughout the Zelda series we’ve seen a number of different languages, including Hylian, Gerudo, Minish and Sheikah. Often languages don’t play a huge part in the Zelda games, and they are only prominent due to the scripts on signs and monuments littered across the overworld. However, developers must place some importance on the cultural aspects of Zelda games, as the Hylian language has evolved over the years. In fact there has been six forms of the Hylian language used by the…

It has been over two years since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s release, and yet, players are still managing to find new glitches. This most recent glitch was recently showcased by none other than the famous YouTube channel GameXplain and brings about a new way to surf Hyrule in style — literally. Using the name “glider surfing”, this glitch allows player to glide endlessly across Hyrule, so long as they do not take damage, hit water, or touch…

Music is a defining feature of The Legend of Zelda series, so much so that it becomes its own character. The soundscape molds Hyrule around Link and his friends, giving character to those he interacts with and helps the player connect with them on an emotional level. The awe-striking music from The Legend of Zelda played a significant role in why I chose to pursue Bachelor’s Degree in music, and it is why I have decided to take an in-depth look at different tracks…

The Legend of Zelda is full of emotional moments that the player can immerse themselves in. It’s a series where friendships blossom, promises are made and good-byes are heart-felt. But although there are many happy moments in the series, there are also many sad moments too. Some of the more emotional moments in the Zelda series might be when Midna says good-bye to Link forever, in Twilight Princess. Or when Zelda seals herself in sleep during Skyward Sword, and Link’s devastation…

Here’s a feel-good story for you. It might have taken 755 hours of blood, sweat, and tears but one grandma has finally beaten The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. At 82 years old, GramieGreat (as she is known on Reddit) received a copy of the game back in 2006. She has dipped in and out of play for the past eleven years, but has always known it was there waiting for her to complete. Proud grandson Chris (millerischris) shared that…

The last two entries in the Super Smash Bros. series have had some impressive CG trailers. If you’ve ever wondered how those trailers are made, Super Smash Bros. Director Masahiro Sakurai detailed their creation in his latest Famitsu column. Sakurai begins by laying out the planning stages that lead up to the CG development of character reveal trailers: “In the first stage, I write the plot, by which I mean a basic scenario with a few extra ideas thrown in….

The only time that we ever see Link and Mario team up is in Smash Bros., but even then it’s not much of a team-up than it is a player’s choice of character. Both franchises have a plethora of items to choose from, but what if you could grab an item from Mario’s world and drop it into Link’s? My choise would be the ? (Question) Block. I imagine that a random prize inside might help Link along the way,…

Hot on the trail of their freshman album, Shadow and Steel, Zelda tribute metal band Master Sword is ready to begin recording their newest album, The Final Door. They can’t do it alone, however. In order to help make their next album a reality, the band has launched a new Kickstarter campaign The Kickstarter has a goal of $16,000, and the band has already raised almost $6,000 (at the time of writing) with just 84 backers. There are a variety of…

Remakes are all the rage in the current video game landscape. Many highly popular games are being remade, and some good examples include Sony and Bluepoint’s Shadow of the Colossus remake or Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 remake. One game that I think would benefit most from a complete overhaul is Skyward Sword. In my opinion, this game has one of the best stories in the Zelda series but has some distracting flaws. A “from the ground up” remake could…

“Zelda!” Daphnes shouted over the noise. “I’m here!” his wife called back. “I’m alright too,” the princess said from above. She had actually managed to grab hold of the ledge as the ground below had given way. “Get to Lady Impa, she can get us to safety with the soldiers.” Zelda heard her father, but she could see him. The man that had suddenly ambushed them. The man that had made her family look weak. “Father, I have a shot!…
