The Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest is back, y’all! After skipping a week due to my trip to E3, I’ve returned with a doozy of a screenshot for you. Taken straight from the surprise announcement trailer for Breath of the Wild sequel, this image features the terrifying remains of some long-dead evil. Could this be the Dark King of Evil, Ganondorf? Probably. Why is he so cranky? We’ll just have to wait to find out. But in the meantime, let’s assign…

By far the most shocking announcement during Nintendo’s E3 Direct this year was the reveal that Nintendo is developing a sequel to Breath of the Wild. It astonishes me that a roughly two minute long trailer can yield so much content to break asunder, analyze, and even engender theories from. After seeing the reveal, Zelda fans immediately took to the internet, endeavoring to dissect what to expect from the sequel. Amidst all the speculation, what has generally been agreed upon…

Music is a defining feature of The Legend of Zelda series, so much so that it becomes its own character. The soundscape molds Hyrule around Link and his friends, giving character to those he interacts with and helps the player connect with them on an emotional level. The awe-striking music from The Legend of Zelda played a significant role in why I chose to pursue Bachelor’s Degree in music, and it is why I have decided to take an in-depth look at different tracks…

I have seen some fantastic LEGO sets over the years, but this was something a bit special. Hanwasyellowfirst has created a LEGO set based on the stables from Breath Of The Wild. When I first saw this, it took my breath away, and I couldn’t believe that this was a first submission for LEGO ideas! The set consists of some 1800 – 2000 pieces, and Hanwasyellowfirst has used a brick design program called studio to prototype some specific parts. The…

Fans finally got their hands on Cadence of Hyrule this week, and it seems that everyone is falling in love with this wonderful rhythm roguelike. A lot of praise has been justly showered on Cadence‘s music, as the game celebrates the musical legacy of the entire Zelda series with a collection of bumpin’ rearrangements. Well, with the game finally available for all to play, the talented folks behind its amazing soundtrack are sounding off on social media to share in…

Cadence of Hyrule hit the Switch eShop this past Thursday, effectively serving as Nintendo’s parting gift from E3 2019. Developed by Brace Yourself Games, this indie dungeon crawler brings Crypt of the NecroDancer’s rhythmic combat to The Legend of Zelda. Surely, at this point, many of you have gotten the chance to play the game! So our question is: what do you think so far? Having never played the original NecroDancer, I’m definitely still trying to get used to the…

In one of their latest videos, popular Zelda theorist Zeltik has suggested the forest home of the Great Deku Tree in The Wind Waker is actually the former home of the Kokiri race from Ocarina of Time. There are obvious similarities between the areas, such as the forest areas and the Koroks, but Zeltik highlights even more similarities and instances which may just be too big to be coincidences, including the layout of the Forbidden Woods and even the fate of the…

Check out our video where we share our early thoughts of the game, and stay tuned for more as we dance through the game!

Link’s Awakening for Nintendo Switch, scheduled to release on September 20th, was one of Nintendo’s marquee showings at E3 2019.

The Zelda Dungeon team was given the opportunity to be among the first people…
