Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Latest Updates

The latest Zelda installment, Cadence of Hyrule, has been available for some time now. The rhythm-based, indie spin-off game takes from its namesake, Crypt of the Necrodancer, and features a bombastic track of 131 total songs.  The soundtrack includes both remixes of classic Zelda scores, as well as original compositions. It’s thanks to a variety of towns and regions, caves and dungeons, shops, battles and minigames that this game was able to feature so many tracks. While it covered various different…

The Champions amiibo set, featuring four figures based on the Champions from Breath of the Wild in a single box, sold out very quickly after it was originally released in 2017. Fortunately, fans in the UK that couldn’t get their hands in this set the first go around finally have another chance. The Champions amiibo set is once again available on the Nintendo UK store for £49.99. The Champions amiibo set includes Urbosa, Mipha, Daruk, and Revali figures, and all…

Everyone loves a good mystery, and The Legend of Zelda certainly has more than enough of these! For example, do you believe that Kakariko Village and Windfall Island could be one and the same place? If you have always been intrigued by Kakariko village with its connections to the Sheikah, then you should watch this video by Zelda theorist Zeltik. Zeltik looks first at comparing the themes of Kakariko Village and Windfall Island. He identifies landmarks that demonstrate familiarity between…

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…

Hello again! Welcome back to Artists of Legend. I hope you’ve been enjoying this year’s Zelda Dungeon Marathon! This week, as normal, we have quite a few submissions to feature and a new art prompt to offer to anyone interested. Now, let’s get right on into everything! 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…
