If you’re living outside the Americas, there’s a high probability that you’ve never heard of mariachi music. Originating in Mexico, mariachi is a popular folk style of music that is high-energy and rich, and it just makes you want to dance. No joke, Darunia would totally get down to this genre of music. As a child of the southwestern United States, mariachi music was everywhere for me. Weddings, funerals, high school graduations, you name it. If there was a cause for…

Hyrule Warriors featured a lot of different types of missions. Some were escort missions, others were objective based until a boss appeared, and then there were missions that involved defeating commanders and then the enemy general. I would imagine that many of those missions would transfer over into Age of Calamity when it releases later this year, but I do hope that we see a few other types of missions. Knowing that the game is set in the world of…

You have questions about Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity? We have answers! We asked you guys to feed us your most pressing questions about the upcoming prequel and you did not disappoint. Alasyn and I answer over 50 questions! Do we think Zelda’s mother will show up? What kind of DLC do we want? What Breath of the Wild tracks do we want remixed in the signature Hyrule Warriors style sound? Will we see Purah in her adult form? Is…

Independent of the series’ stimulating gameplay, many games in The Legend of Zelda tend to add a little side enjoyment. Not all of the Zelda games feature mini-games, but the majority do, and that leaves us with hours of side content, and the nice incentive of earning some rupees along the way. Out of the 70-or-so mini-games offered across the series, each game brings something new; but which Zelda game brings the best? I’ve played several Zelda mini-games spanning across…

Hello there, everyone! What say you to another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest? We’re all still recovering from Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity‘s surprise announcement a few weeks back, and we’re all looking forward to seeing more of the game this weekend. With that said, this week’s contest — and perhaps the next few contests — will focus on Age of Calamity and its many screenshots. Last Week’s Contest: Revali had some target practice last week. By:…

Like many Zelda fans, Ocarina of Time remains one of my favorite games in the series. Its impact on gaming is hard to dispute; it’s considered a masterpiece for a reason, afterall. But let’s face it – while being great for its time, it pales in comparison to the scope of modern gaming. For perspective, 3 years after Ocarina of Time entered the gaming sphere, it was already left in the dust by Grand Theft Auto III, which was likely…

The Canadian Game Awards, a celebration of Canada’s spot on the world stage as a leader in video game entertainment and development, hosted its inaugural event on Friday September 18th. Several great Canada-based studios took home gold during the show, but it was the big award that caught Zelda fans’ attention. Game of the Year is always a large category in any video game award show, which is why it’s so impressive that Cadence of Hyrule has won game of the year! Cadence…

In celebration of thirty-five years of the Super Mario Bros. franchise, Nintendo has made many Mario games available to play on the Nintendo Switch. Super Mario 3D All Stars in particular features three of the franchises biggest titles: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. With the 35th anniversary of the Zelda series approaching, it wouldn’t be out of the question for Nintendo to do something similar with our favorite franchise in 2021. In order to celebrate…

As excitement builds for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, we’re all looking forward to the next opportunity to see the game in action. Koei Tecmo and Nintendo have already announced that Age of Calamity will be shown at Tokyo Game Show on September 26th, but it seems the game will not be exclusive to that event next weekend. On Sunday, September 27th at 5 PM Japan time (1 AM Pacific, 4 AM Eastern, and 9 AM UK time), there will be…

Although Breath of the Wild is one of the Zelda games that incorporates a lot of technology, the setting still feels more akin to the Middle Ages than current industrial eras of today. The Sheikah technology in Breath of the Wild has a distinct look that adds to the fantasy setting without detracting from it. It takes inspiration from modern times in reality through things like tablets, while still giving it an ancient feel. The developers made it clear that…
