The split story telling of Breath of the Wild creates a unique balance between mystery and detail, keeping the player intrigued to find out more. Regardless of how well you think the game executed this, there’s no denying the story is complex, taking twists and turns every step of the way, and allows players to form some of their own conclusions. Taking advantage of this, Youtube theory-crafter NintendoBlackCrisis, along with his viewers, asked the question: “What if Link had survived the original…

WARNING: This Daily Debate contains SPOILERS for Link’s Awakening. By the end of this year, we will all have our hands on what’s now one of the most anticipated Nintendo games in 2019: a Link’s Awakening remake for the Switch. Aside from the continued arguments in regards to the art style, a lot of fans agree that this remake was a long time coming. One of the biggest takeaways from this 25+ year Zelda title is the story. For those…

Zelda Dungeon has seen a lot of discussion about Breath of the Wild‘s soundtrack this week. Our resident music scholar Matt Pederberg offered his analysis of the game’s main theme, we covered a video defense of the game’s minimalist score, and Breath‘s Hyrule Castle theme earned a spot among the Elite Eight in our Musical March Madness tournament. With all this renewed interest in the music of Breath of the Wild, it seemed appropriate to highlight a jazzy fan composition…

The subject of Breath of the Wild‘s soundtrack is one that garners a fair amount of controversy. Many fans have stated their disappointment in it, surfacing any number of criticisms. However, there are some who would vouch in favor of the soundtrack being shed in a positive light. In a recent video, Zelda theorist NintendoBlackCrisis brings a long and detailed defense to the game’s score. Providing thought-provoking examples of how the soundtrack works through its accuracy to the world and…

When the Link’s Awakening remake was revealed, a few of us around here took note of the title in the trailer being simply “Link’s Awakening“. If this is the final title for the game, it breaks the typical naming convention of other Zelda remakes. That being said, maybe this was just a tease. Is there more to the title than this? Does it even really matter? In the latest Hyrule Compendium, Mases and I discuss just that. Mas especially is…

In a totally-out-of-left-field move, Nintendo announced earlier today during their Nindies Direct that they were partnering with Vancouver-based Brace Yourself Games to make the dungeon crawling/rhythm music game, Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer feat. The Legend of Zelda (say that ten times fast). This game is a spinoff of both the original Crypt of the NecroDancer game that was released a few years ago, and of course, the Zelda series. Spinoffs are becoming more commonplace among The Legend…

A brand new Zelda game was just announced during the today’s Nindies Direct. Cadence of Hyrule is a spin-off title combining the worlds of The Legend of Zelda with the gameplay of Crypt of the NecroDancer. Players will now be able to jam out while saving Hyrule from evil forces in glorious fashion. In high-paced, rhythmic action, we are treated to Link and Zelda fighting various monsters from throughout Hyrule’s history, ranging from Bokoblins — finally in pixelated form —  to giant Armos,…

Zelda Warfare is our series in which Mases and Gooey race Link’s Awakening DX on hero mode in segmented sections. Each episode, or campaign, is worth a point. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game has won the war!  Episode two has us sprinting through Tail Cave. We will be talking to some owl statues, facing Rolling Bones, and of course taking on the final boss, Moldorm. Let us know who you are rooting for, and…

From ambitious fan remakes to randomized speed runs, the OoT community is as active as ever, still finding new ways to enjoy the Nintendo 64 classic. Aiming to elevate the game beyond its single-player roots, a team of talented modders, for example, has been hard at work developing a multiplayer version of Ocarina of…
