There are hundreds of cool articles and videos about dominoes across the internet.

Many clever creators have made domino set-ups beyond my wildest imagination. Additionally, there is a tangible excitement when someone sets off the first domino and your eyes hastily try to follow the cascade of falling pieces. This Toon Link piece by…

Secret endings are quite rare in the Zelda series, only popping up in a handful of titles. For the uninitiated, secret endings are a type of in-game reward players can receive after completing particular objectives. For example, in both versions of Link’s Awakening, the secret ending is a reward for completing the game without dying once. But are they satisfying? Any ending, secret or no, should feel rewarding to the player. A proper send off for all the time you…

A day late, but a couple bucks over value, we are here to dive into The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. You guys know how these definitive ranking series work by now – we take 10 classic categories like dungeons, overworld, art style, music, etc. – and grade a Zelda game individually on these categories. Up to bat today is The Wind Waker. In a companion piece to our friends over at the Hyrule Compendium’s own video, we tackle…

Set in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world, Toasty is an upcoming Zelda-like Action RPG “with some unique twists”. The game is being developed by Pocket Llama Studios, a team of all-stars with credentials of having formerly worked on Sonic Mania with Sega, Skullgirls by Lab Zero Games, and the Breath of the Wild-inspired The Legend’s Cookbook. The protagonist of Toasty is a Marshmallow Knight named Marshell. This unlikely Hero will embark on a quest “to stop an all-powerful evil…

I’ll be the first to admit it—I am a heinously slow gamer. Breath of the Wild took me almost two years to beat, and I only had the satisfaction of watching the end credits for A Link to the Past on the Switch two weeks ago. But, how long is too long to complete a game? While I firmly believe that there is no wrong way to enjoy games, there is an enormous amount of pressure to beat a title…

Being a big-time fan, commercials are never the first place I hear about a new Zelda game, but they can certainly hype me up as one gets close to launch. Whether or not they’ve convinced fans to pick up a new game, the Zelda series has quite a few iconic television ads. From heartwarming, to bizarre, creative, and catchy, we have a fantastic selection of commercials to choose from — but which one is the best? Get ready to open…

It seems like so, so long ago that Nintendo so thrillingly revealed the sequel to the mega-hit Switch game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It was a moment I’ll personally never forget, as I sat there, covering it live for Zelda Dungeon, excited and giddy at the possibilities from a successor to what had quickly become one of my favorite games ever. I remember thinking that it was unlikely that we would see any more information or…

One of my favorite things about the Zelda franchise is the variety of artwork associated with the games.  Nintendo have been careful in their designs of individual characters, enemies and over-worlds, ensuring that each is as fantastically unique as the next.  Personally, I love diving into The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts to decide which variation of Link is my favorite.  I’ll even admit I’ve spent a while deciding which version of the Moblin I like best!  There is just…

In many ways, Breath of the Wild was a spiritual remake or reimagining of the original Legend of Zelda. From the iconic Dueling Peaks, the open world with emphasis on exploration, and its defining of the series for many, to name just a few of the parallels. There has been a lot written on this idea already, so I’m not going to spend long going into those parts. However, I think there’s another set of connections that we can look…

Over the years, I’ve found myself drawn to media that explores the idea of multiple timelines or alternate universes, and at the center of my fascination with these stories is the Zelda series. Before the publication of Hyrule Historia, the notion of split timelines was nothing more than a fun theory fans posited online. The franchise was often split between two timelines, the branching point always beginning with Ocarina of Time. Back then, the split was attributed to two things:…
