Who can forget the first time they dove into the Depths? You approach a deep Gloom-filled chasm. You have no clue where it leads, so you dive in to find that the pit just keeps going and going. The air gets thick and darkness surrounds you, the only light emanating from the red glow of the gloom. A loud Bwaaaahh! sounds off, setting an ominous tone for what lies before you. You finally land with only a small area visible…

In a recent interview with Game Informer, The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma and Tears of the Kingdom‘s director Hidemaro Fujibayashi shared some of their thoughts on Tears of the Kingdom with the hindsight of being seven months since its release. They covered topics such as Tears of the Kingdom‘s reception, the possibility of a direct sequel to the game, and the Zelda timeline, among other things. Debates surrounding the importance and validity of a Zelda timeline predate its…

This year’s annual Game Awards streamed live on various social media platforms last night, and Tears of the Kingdom was nominated for a variety of awards, including Game of the Year. Tears of the Kingdom did snag the award for Best Action/Adventure Game, but fell short in other categories it was nominated for. So what did you think of Tears of the Kingdom’s performance at The Game Awards? Honestly, I’m a little bummed that Tears of the Kingdom did not…

Like many of you, I have received my “Spotify Wrapped” this week, informing me of all the cringey music I’ve been listening to in secret. The not-cringey-but-actually-awesome ZREO: Second Quest showed up on my top five artists, as I frequently find myself visiting their orchestral versions of Zelda songs in search of some filling nostalgia. I was surprised, however, to find my Wrapped story accompanied by a video of lead composer Ari Barack Fisher thanking me for my support, and…

In a recent interview conducted by Game Informer‘s Brian Shea, Tears of the Kingdom producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi discussed the game’s reception, its timeline placement, comparison to other games in the series, subverting players’ expectations, and more. With hopes for DLC being solidly squashed not only previously but again during this interview, with Aonuma stating that Tears of the Kingdom is the product of “removing all of the parts that didn’t make sense or didn’t fit perfectly,”…

Hollywood superstar Timothée Chalamet took the stage last night at The Game Awards 2023 to present the ceremony’s most coveted prize, the Game of the Year award. But, in a “Keighleys” tradition, before the envelope was opened and the winner announced, the Game Awards orchestra, led by Scottish composer Lorne Balfe, performed a stirring medley of themes inspired by each Game of the Year nominee. The 2023 Game of the Year medley featured themes from The Legend of Zelda: Tears…

The big question on every Zelda fan’s mind going into The Game Awards 2023 was: could The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom match the success of its predecessor Breath of the Wild and secure the coveted Game of the Year award? Well, with the ceremony now concluded, we finally have our answer. Tears of the Kingdom unfortunately fell short of the big one this year, as frontrunner Baldur’s Gate 3 officially secured Game of the Year at the…

Before the internet was accessible to children, cheat codes, easter eggs, speculations, and strategies for beating a video game were all shared at the playground. We had no real way of verifying this information for ourselves besides trying it out, so this arrangement became a breeding ground for misinformation, or “playground rumors” as they are now so lovingly called. Maybe it came in the form of a kid wanting the big scoop on some secret that would impress his friends,…

Update: Nintendo today announced the cancellation of Nintendo Live 2024, which was planned to take place in Tokyo, Japan on January 20th and 21st. The company cited persistent threats to employees, spectators, and staff as the reason for the cancellation, emphasizing that safety is its “top priority.” The Splatoon Koshien 2023 National Finals, which were to be held at Nintendo Live 2024, have thus been postponed. The Splatoon 3 World Championship 2024, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Online Challenge Final Stage, and…

With The Game Awards happening tomorrow evening, here at Zelda Dungeon we’ve begun to ponder what catagories Tears of the Kingdom could rack up wins for? It is nominated for five catagories: Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best Art Direction, Best Score and Music, and Best Action/Adventure. With so many nominations, it’s hard to imagine the game not winning at least one or a few of those catagories. However, the question that’s been burning in my mind since…
