It’s pretty awesome that a classic like Link’s Awakening is being reimagined in HD for the Switch! I’d imagine translating a Game Boy title to bigger screens probably had its challenges, especially in how the developers chose to depict the game’s visuals. Weeks after E3, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma expanded on aspects of the Link’s Awakening remake in comments made to Nintendo UK’s website. Aonuma brought up how he wanted to maintain the miniature feel of this Game Boy…

Sometimes a game comes along in a series that stands out. It is a paragon of the elements in the series and on a level untouchable by all the others. It is memorable, it is unique, and it is absolutely the most awful version of the best thing ever. That’s right. I’m talking bottom of the barrel bad. We all have a game in the Zelda series that comes to mind when thinking of the greatest, but what about the…

Fans of The Legend of Zelda, it seems, have always called for a dungeon creation or customization tool within the series. The release of Super Mario Maker in 2015 only made those calls louder, as the possibility of a “Zelda Maker” seemed that much more likely given Nintendo’s willingness to hand over the reigns to their flagship franchise. Well, we weren’t the only ones clamoring for such a feature, as series producer Eiji Aonuma has also wanted to see a…

Throughout Skyward Sword, Link meets many surface dwelling allies. One of these allies is a race of burrowing moles who help us progress through the Earth Temple, and even help us escape the Bokoblin Base on our return to Eldin. After this, though, we don’t really see them again, in game, or in any other title. The question is, what happened to them? Of course, we’re not going to get any solid answers from Nintendo, so we’ll have to make do…

A book celebrating the life of late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata was recently announced. The book will be published by Japanese company Habonichi, which was founded by Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi. The book will collect words shared by Iwata on the official Nintendo website, as well as on Habonichi’s Blog. Additionally, contributions from Itoi and Shigeru Miyamoto will be featured. According to currently available information, the book will only be released in Japan, however, there is no launch date set…

We saw a lot of the Link’s Awakening remake earlier this month, thanks largely to Nintendo’s E3 offering. In addition to a new trailer revealing the game’s September 20th release date, the event also gave attendees (including the Zelda Dungeon team) the opportunity to play through Link’s Awakening‘s first 15 minutes. Our own demo ended right after we defeated the game’s first boss, but it seems other attendees were using their time in the game to seek out more obscure…

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…

This week, Andy is flying solo and giving you the breakdown on what very well might be the greatest Zelda spinoff game ever: Cadence of Hyrule! Is the movement an issue? Do you get used to moving on beat? What are the dungeons like? How similar is this to Crypt of the Necrodancer? Who’s Andy’s favorite playable character? All this and more! Also included are Breath of the Wild 2‘s origins and Zelda Dungeon Marathon talk! Tune in for some…

Greetings, Zelda fans! The Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest is on fire, so let’s maintain the heat with a brand new image. We took a look at a still from the Breath of the Wild sequel reveal last week, so we wanted to highlight another upcoming Zelda game with this week’s contest. Link’s Awakening comes out for Switch on September 20th, and it’s an adorable, adorable game. The character’s are just so expressive; just take a look at the scene below….

When asking a Zelda fan to picture a map of Hyrule, chances are they are able to accumulate a variety of maps from across the series’s many iterations of the kingdom. The geographical layout of the Hylian landscape has followed a similar pattern since the very first game and nearly every time since that a new location would be introduced. Going beyond the recurring locations such as Death Mountain and Lake Hylia, these landmarks seem to find themselves in similar…
