Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Latest Updates

Throughout the Zelda games, Link has had the opportunity to don outfits of different colors and and styles, allowing the player to enjoy the various benefits and in some instances, negative effects that can influence the hero’s adventures in Hyrule. There are armor sets, like the Magic Armor from Twilight Princess, which makes the wearer invulnerable while draining rupees from their wallet, and tunics from Ocarina of Time that provide heat resistance and the ability to breathe under water. There is mail from A…

Last month, Dark Horse Comics announced the November 20th release date of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild — Creating a Champion, an extensive art book celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Zelda franchise and the release of Breath of the Wild. A localized version of Breath of the Wild Master Works, which released in Japan last year, the book will feature tons of concept art and developer insights from the latest Zelda title. Beyond the standard edition…

Nintendo kicked off its second Nintendo Labo Creators Contest last month, encouraging fans to create stunning inventions with the cardboard accessories. The North American winners were just announced, ranging from a solar-powered accordion to an analog clock. What really caught my attention, however, was one of its three “Best Decorated Toy-Con” winners: a Legend of Zelda-inspired piano. Customized with a variety of paper and clay materials, this piece boasts origami Silent Princess flowers, Divine Beast-themed sound knobs, and the Master…

Super Smash Bros. Melee has a special place in my heart as the first video game I ever played with my brother. With Zelda and Sheik as my main fighters, I remember spending countless hours fighting my way through Adventure Mode, challenging my brother and friends to Tournament matches, and most importantly, collecting trophies. By the time I got around to really playing the game, my brother had already collected nearly all of the trophies, making my attempts to collect…

It’s Monday once again, which means the Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest is ready for another round. Since E3, we’ve been running through screenshots from the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This new fighting game could very well be the biggest Nintendo crossover of all time, bringing together characters from the company’s marquee franchises. It’s only because of Super Smash Bros. that we get to see scenes like today’s contest image, in which the cunning Sheikah warrior Sheik encounters the fish…

There is not a doubt in anyone’s mind that Breath of the Wild is an extremely expansive game, with the freedom to basically do what you choose. Some have only played through the story, some have sunk hundreds of hours into going full-explorer mode, and many have played it multiple times, normal and Master modes alike. And a few have taken on the daunting task of attempting to achieve that beautiful figure, “100%.” I have recently become one of the latter….

As some of you might have heard, today marks the beginning of what can only be described as the biggest Zelda event of the year – the Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018. Packed to the brim with exciting content, nail biting races, and comically failed glitches and exploits, you do not want to miss it. While the team involved with the event might brush it off as a bit of fun (and an excellent way to raise money for charity), an underlying tension…

“Gerudo Valley” is my all time favorite songs in the Legend of Zelda franchise. Koji Kondo’s theme for the fierce Gerudo thieves sounds like no other theme from Ocarina of Time‘s rich and beautiful soundtrack. This arrangement by Fabio Lima uses the acoustic guitar to capture the essence of the theme, creating a beautiful and faithful arrangement of the song. For anyone who has played the game, this rendition will conjure up images of red rock canyons, desert fortresses, and fierce…

Dungeons are the highlight of the Legend of Zelda series, but Mases and I think some of the games may not have enough! In the newest entry in our Hyrule Compendium series, we discuss what is the minimum amount of dungeons a Zelda game should have. What do you think? Are there games with too few? Let us know in the comments! If you enjoyed this video, please give it a like and head on over to our Youtube channel and subscribe for more! For more of…
