Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Latest Updates

I’ve written for Zelda Dungeon for almost eighteen months now, and I’m afraid that I can no longer beat around the bush. Sure, Daily Debates on stories, weapons, and characters are good, but they’re just not addressing the biggest issue in the Zelda camp. Sorry everyone, but it has to be done. Hair. It’s one of the only remaining staples left in the Zelda series (I’m sure I don’t need to remind you that every incarnation thus far has had it). There’s no…

“Hurry,” Aldwin said, turning and limping onward. He and Osmond burst out onto a wide street. Remains of an overturned cart were scattered about as the fires were beginning to spread into the area. A small well was near the center of the clearing, surrounded by a few homes. But what drew their attention was the gargantuan armored skeleton monster, pulling its sword back to strike. Aldwin mustered all the speed he had and lunged ahead. He reached out with…

Among the many, many new features introduced in Breath of the Wild, the latest Zelda adventure allows Link cook up meals with ingredients found within the game world. Most of the dishes that our hero concocts can make any player’s mouth water, which is why so many fans online are attempting to bring these recipes into the real world. Projects like The Legend’s Cookbook, which recently launched a successful Kickstarter, aim to faithfully recreate Breath of the Wild‘s delicious dishes,…

Around this same time last year, we reported that Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu was asked in an interview what game he would like to make from any Nintendo franchise. Aizu said that he would be interested in doing a “modern remake” of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. And with the remake of Link’s Awakening right around the corner, he was asked about his answer to that question just recently. In a recent interview with Video Game Chronicle, Aizu…

Submitted Artwork During the Zelda Dungeon Marathon, the amazing people at Linktober have partnered with us to provide an art challenge every day based on the primary Zelda games that have been featured during the…

The Stalfos are one of the most iconic enemies in The Legend of Zelda series. These fierce skeletal warriors have hounded Link since 1986, and never let a little thing like death get in their way of opposing our hero. Throughout the years, there have been many different designs for the iconic humanoid skeletons. With each new art style and game engine, the designers have given the Stalfos a distinct look. This includes things like changing the size and shape…

Yesterday, alongside reports of a new Switch model with longer battery life, Nintendo also revealed some cool new Joy-Con colors. There are two new sets of colors: A Blue/Neon Yellow combination and a Neon Purple/Neon Orange mashup. You will be able to get your hands on these Joy-Cons on October 14th, with each set priced at $79.99 USD. Personally, I find myself gravitating towards Purple/Orange combo, but I really do like the Blue left Joy-Con. However, I’m finding myself wishing…

The gaming world has been buzzing about the recent expansions to the Nintendo Switch brand, as rumors of new and improved hardware are finally coming to fruition. Nintendo finally announced the portable-only Switch Lite console last week, and recent reports indicate several iterative improvements to the current Switch model. With the Switch proving to be a mammoth success, it should come as no surprise that Nintendo will continue to support the console and the brand. As reported by Dutch tech…

Our flaxen-haired hero has seen plenty of horrors in his time; Giant spiders, ghosts, amorphous water creatures, and the moon defying all physics to crush a small town. Yet, through it all, Link has persevered with cunning, weaponry, and a bit of magic. Hyrule really is in good hands. With all that expertise and robust catalogue of armaments, could Link be the hero in other fantasy worlds? Link has had a few cameos in other games, yet in none of…

Update: As reported by Kotaku, Nintendo Japan has listed an upcoming Switch model with better battery life on its website. This new model will be priced the same as the current model and will release in the US and other territories mid-August. The new Switch model, number HAC-001(-01), will have a battery life between 4.5 and 9 hours, depending on the title. In contrast, the current model has a battery life between 2.5 and 6.5 hours. Better battery life, along with…
