The D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Awards are one of the more prestigious video game award shows around. These awards have a similarity to the Academy Awards, as the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences gather a group of panelists, mainly people who work in the gaming industry, and vote on which games from the previous year deserve top honors. Of course we’re taking a look at it this year because Breath of the Wild has a strong chance of…

Ever since I was younger, something I tend to naturally do is attempt to apply lyrics to any song that lacks them. Before I joined the writing team here at Zelda Dungeon, I used to do that on occasion as a fun little pastime by writing lyrics to some video game music that I like. With that in mind, I thought that some of you might be interested to see lyrics to some of the music from The Legend of…

The Rito of the¬†Zelda series are an intriguing and mysterious tribe that has had only a few, limited appearances throughout the franchise.¬†The Rito debuted in¬†The Wind Waker in 2002,¬†and they made their second appearance¬†in Breath of the Wild¬†in 2017.

The musical theme that accompanies this tribe in both games,…

In what shouldn’t come as shock to anyone, Breath of the Wild has sold amazingly across the world. After only a little over a month on store shelves, the game managed to surpass the sales of the Nintendo Switch itself. By the end of 2017, it even reached over five million combined units sold worldwide. The game has even more recently become Japan’s most sold Zelda title in 19 years.

Breath of the Wild‘s soundtrack has some notable tracks that simply stand out from the rest, like “Hyrule Castle” and “The Champion’s Ballad,” and the rest of the soundtrack is largely comprised of atmospheric music that enhances the experience of exploring Hyrule. I enjoy the soundtrack as a whole, especially the town themes. Most of the town themes are nice and relaxing to listen to, and for me, my personal favorite town theme is “Rito Village,” and while both its…

The Adventure of Link Vs. Oracle of Seasons To this day, The Adventure of Link stands as one of the strangest and most divisive Zelda games, bucking many of the trends established by its predecessor. Even the title’s music deviated from the Koji Kondo compositions…

It is undeniable that almost every Legend of Zelda game has a soundtrack packed with bangers. There is much debate between Zelda fans as to which game has the best soundtrack. Our debate in the newest Zelda Challenge episode takes a slight turn though. In this episode, Kevin and I are instead looking at what game uses music the best within the actual game. As opposed to which game has an actual better soundtrack, we are looking at the implementation…

Since 2015, I have covered everything under the sun when it comes to the Zelda community. I remember one of my first big posts was about a woman who took three whole years to make a cosplay of Volvagia from Ocarina of Time that turned out absolutely astounding. From then on, I have experienced the dedication that Zelda fans have toward the series every single day. And one of my favorite kinds of community creations to highlight is musical covers….
