Upset that you’ve lost track of your favourite game? Fear not, for I’m back to bring you right into the present day! This week, we’re looking at yet more stasis launching news from Breath of the Wild, a new way to play Ocarina of Time,…

Canadians may just be the biggest Zelda fans. As part of a recent interview with the Toronto Star, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé shared about Nintendo’s sales successes in Canada, especially in regards to a few specific game series. According to him, The Legend of Zelda, alongside other popular series like Pokémon, has consistently overperformed in Canada as compared to other territories. Fils-Aime stated that “the Canadian audience is the very tip of the mountaintop when it comes to Zelda games,”…

The “Song of Storms” is a simple tune woven throughout the Zelda series, yet playing it can have some powerful effects. It’s a song to make the windmill go faster and drain the well in Kakariko Village, to return the Ikana River’s flow, to call forth rain and fairies, and to make the seeds grow. It’s a song to… put you to sleep? Musician and avid Let’s Player Celestial Fury may have found a way to do just that, and friends, that’s not…

With the amount of collectible items and Easter eggs hidden throughout the games, the Zelda series has a timeless charm and quality that makes the games easily replayable. The puzzles are fun and inventive, the characters are charming, and the stories split across three timelines make the games worth experiencing again and again. There are few games that I will play multiple times, and among them are several of the Zelda games. While I adore many of the entries in…

A message from Zelda Dungeon‘s Forum Team by Forum Manager Choung “Ninja” Ngyuen: On June 16th, news was broken that one of our former administrators of the Zelda Dungeon forums, Jamie, has suddenly passed away. Many of us are heartbroken because we have lost someone that genuinely cared about the forum, and everyone’s well being inside it. Jamie was a beloved member of the community, and had a hand in making it one of the best places for Zelda fans…

Whew, what an E3 week it has been! Just last Tuesday we finished up the Press Conferences with a whopping Nintendo presentation and we live streamed it for all of you on Twitch! It was one of the most fun times we’ve had on The Champions’ Cast and we thought we’d get it to all of you who weren’t able to make it to the stream. Andy and I settled in, made our bets, and endured the suffering of each…

Nintendo unveiled Super Smash Bros. Ultimate last week with a showcase of the myriad characters returning to the fray. Although only a few new characters were announced, series creator Masahiro Sakurai emphasized his team’s efforts to make as many of the 62 preexisting fighters feel fresh. Nowhere is that more apparent than with the game’s Zelda challengers, as several of them are sporting new designs and moves since their previous outing. Previous Super Smash Bros. entries based the Triforce trio…

It’s never easy to love a hero. Mipha’s story in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the most heart-breaking elements of the game. Mipha was the first Champion I encountered, and her story of lost love really resonated with me. I was moved by Mipha’s gentle sincerity and her love and affection for everyone’s favorite hero. This arrangement of Mipha’s theme by Youtuber SmyFloNy instantly captures the gentleness and kindness that is exhibited by the…

A Link to the Past is a fantastic entry in the Zelda series that introduced many important gameplay and story elements in the series, among them being the Sages and Maidens, beings capable of sealing away Ganondorf. Subsequent games have included Sages and Maidens as well, with many of them featuring important character arcs that revolve around awakening their powers. In all of the games that Sages have appeared in since A Link to the Past – Ocarina of Time,…

Late last month, video game equipment manufacturer ASTRO Gaming revealed a brand new gaming headset inspired by Breath of the Wild, as part of the company’s new partnership with Nintendo.

We recently got a closer look at ASTRO’s new line of products at E3 2018, including a hands-on…
