The king was dead, victim to the Calamity as it rampaged through the castle, its town, and the land of Hyrule. The princess had spent a century holding evil at bay, waiting for Link to awaken from his slumber. And across the land, the people just… carried on. They learned to rule themselves. The Zora kept their own king, the Gerudo their own tribe leader. The Skeikah kept themselves in the shadows beneath the protection of Impa. But the Hylians?…

It’s close to midnight, Zelda fans. And something evil’s lurking in the dark. The calendar has finally turned from September to October, which means we can finally feature some spooky, scary, and sinister screenshots in Zelda Dungeon’s weekly Caption Contest. To kick of the freaky festivities, I’m taking a cue from a recent Linktober prompt: Bones. Igos du Ikana from Majora’s Mask is here to usher in the Halloween season. Are you ready?   Last Week’s Contest: Ravio Month ended…

Zelda Dungeon recently covered a report by Did You Know Gaming? on Retro Studios’ cancelled Sheikah-inspired Zelda game which had been slated for release on the Wii. During their investigation, Did You Know Gaming? talked with former Retro Studios employees to discuss the game prototype that Nintendo rejected. They even uncovered some information about another Zelda game that Retro Studios pitched earlier for the DS called Heroes of Hyrule. Now, Did You Know Gaming? has released their full video on…

Earlier this year, Nintendo made headlines when announcing its acquisition of Tokyo-based animation studio Dynamo Pictures. Official documentation of the acquisition described Nintendo’s plans to use the studio, subsequently renamed Nintendo Pictures, “to strengthen the planning and production structure of visual content in the Nintendo group.” Not much more was known about Nintendo’s new animation studio at the time of this announcement, but the recent launch of a Nintendo Pictures official website has shed a bit more light on the…

One of the earliest games I played that included a secret boss was Kingdom Hearts. I remember challenging the Platinum match in Olympus Coliseum, quickly recognizing Sephiroth’s hair and sword and immediately freaking out (and getting a game over not long after). The Secret Bosses in the Kingdom Hearts series have a reputation for being extremely challenging, requiring precision movements, blocks, and quick strikes during short attack windows to achieve victory. In addition, nearly all them are well-designed, established characters…

The new trailer for Tears of the Kingdom has been a huge hit! Content creators across the world have been making articles and videos speculating about the potential lore implications of the trailer and broadcasting their reactions to the video. One of the things I am most excited about for the upcoming Tears of the Kingdom is the game potentially having a more diverse roster of enemies than its predecessor. One of my criticisms of Breath of the Wild is…

Andy makes his triumphant return this week, and it’s just in the nick of time as the Cast are taking YOUR questions on the upcoming Zelda game, Tears of the Kingdom! How much of a role should we realistically expect the Zonai tribe to play? What will the new Champions be up to in this game? What does the overworld map have to do to escape the shadow of Breath of the Wild? Do we even like the name Tears…

YouTube’s BrickVault has developed a custom Master Sword build available for the LEGO enthusiast deep within each of us. BrickVault‘s life-sized build of the Master Sword measures approximately 106cm in length, 6.5cm in width, and 22cm in height (cross guard end-to-end, or 24cm while…

Let’s be real here: for a character that says little more than “hyah!” Link has some great facial expressions. Who says he needs to talk to convey emotions? He’s perfectly capable of expressing anything from dismay to glee. Take our Link from The Wind Waker. His face is so expressive! When he smiles, players can almost see him chuckle. When his face goes flat and he’s not amused, we can hear him just mentally sighing with a single word: “Seriously?”…
