Nintendo has built a reputation on being an innovative, revolutionary gaming company. From creating a motion control-themed console like the Wii to creating a hybrid console, the company has no problem bucking industry trends. Overall, this means that Nintendo is not afraid to make things that might be called weird, wacky, or unusual. Within The Legend of Zelda series, the label of “weird” or “unusual” is often brought up with two key games: Link’s Awakening and Majora’s Mask. Link’s Awakening,…

Despite Link’s Awakening‘s overwhelmingly positive reception, one feature that has divided fans is the blur filter that surrounds the remake’s in-game camera. For some, this filter effect is a nice addition to the diorama-inspired landscape of Koholint Island. For others, though, the effect is a not-so-welcome annoyance. A collaboration between MelonSpeedruns and Rodrigo (a GPU developer from the Yuzu emulation team), the “No DOF Blur” mod for Link’s Awakening has been created to remove all of the tilt-shift, edge blur,…

Hey, Zelda fans! It’s time again for Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest to grace your computer screens. As we mentioned last week, the Halloween season is officially upon us, so you can expect plenty of spooky and scary images throughout the month of October. As a kid, Kakariko Village’s graveyard was one of the spookiest places to visit for me. So, it seemed appropriate to highlight this macabre location and its eccentric proprietor in this week’s contest. Last Week’s Contest:…

It seems like the Breath of the Wild sequel is far from our grasp, but that has not stopped players from talking about what they hope for out of the new game. The game’s trailer that was revealed at E3 this year made many wonder and hope that Zelda would be a playable character. I hold this same hope, but I got to wondering: what kinds of weapons, skills, and unique abilities would I like her to have? Link was…

The Legend of Zelda has some of the most recognizable music in video game history. The series main theme from 1986 has been used in almost every Zelda game so far, but amazingly it almost didn’t exist. Originally, Koji Kondo wanted to use “Bolero” by Maurice Ravel, but the song was still under copyright. So instead of using that song, Kondo created the now-iconic main theme for the series. This arrangement of the main theme by Game Music Collective uses…

The year is winding down and gamers have been treated to a lot of new Zelda news, games, and surprises! It would take a while to hash out everything we’ve been treated to, but most importantly, we’ve gotten two new Zelda games this year! A spin-off in the form of Cadence of Hyrule and the remake of Link’s Awakening. Both games are very different, but which is your favorite? Honestly, I was excited for both! I had never played the…

Some of the more unique objects you encounter in the Zelda series are the Gossip Stones. In a regular encounter with one, striking a Stone causes it to bounce around and tell you the time while using a bomb on it launches it upward. However, when you get a chance to talk to a Gossip Stone while wearing the Mask of Truth in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Link can hear them truly speak. Theorist MaskedNintendoBandit recently released an intriguing…

Welcome to October. The month of cool air, hot drinks, and that perpetual feeling that something is watching you. That’s right, it’s time for all of those haunted feelings, and what better way to give yourself the thrill of a scare than by exploring the most haunted, cursed, and downright creepy spots in Zelda games? What triggers fear can vary widely and is deeply personal. What creeps out one player may not even phase another. The Kakariko Village Graveyard, with…

A light breeze blew into the room from the balcony doors that opened up to the bright light of a new day. As Osmond began to sit up, he flinched and covered his eyes. After letting them adjust for a moment, he took in the lavish surroundings of the room. A large landscape painting of a hillside covered almost the entire wall across from the bed. The bed, he then noticed, was soft and nearly three times the size of…
