One thing we’ve wanted for the Switch is the Virtual Console service. Even though the Nintendo Switch Online service is sort of a replacement, some fans wanted the library of classic games we’ve become familiar with with recent Nintendo consoles. Well, it might be interesting to note that a cunning and clever data miner by the Twitter handle KevDoy has found some references to the Virtual Console service, along with some formats such as “SNES”, “Gameboy Color”, “Nintendo 64” and…

“…for there is no other feeling in the world to compare with it if one loves a great horse. It gives a thrill that nothing else ever can. It cannot be put into words, because words cannot express it.”  – Samuel Riddle Relationships with animals are a key component of many human lives. Affection and loyalty are often important elements of animal/human bonds. An animal needs to be shown respect, love, and care for a true bond to be formed….

The diverse locations seen in The Legend of Zelda games are unforgettable. For the past thirty years, these beautifully realized locales have immersed the player in the rich environment and lore of Nintendo’s ground breaking series. The dungeons are especially important to the sense of immersion created in the series. Most dungeon are required to have their own visual identities, often channeling architecture and themes from a variety of cultures and sources. Artist Tom Garden does an incredible job of…

This week at Zelda Dungeon, we’re focusing on the many companion characters that have made an appearance in The Legend of Zelda. From Navi to Fi, each of us has had companions that we liked more than others. In the same way, each of us has had companion characters that we despised. No matter how we felt about any given companion character, each of them, unfortunately, left Link behind at the end of the game, and some in sadder ways than others. While…

Majora’s Mask has always been seen as an oddball entry in the Zelda series’ history, a black sheep among its brethren, a game and story that was never afraid to be a little twisted, a little unhinged, a little hairy. Surrounded by conspiracy theories regarding terminal Termina’s alternative world being that of purgatory, with dark dilemmas, warped characters and some form of tragedy permeating each compass point, its easy to see why. And on an initial quest to find his beloved…

It’s Companion Week over here at Zelda Dungeon, and we’re getting the week started with a bang! This week, the boys sit down to discuss every Zelda Companion EVER. Buckle in, because it’s a long one; we discuss our favorites, least favorites, weigh in on how usefulness affects our liking, and debate what exactly constitutes a companion. Is Navi really as annoying as they say? Is Midna really as great as people make her out to be? Is it time…

Happy Monday, friends and foes! I hope you’re ready another exciting entry of the Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest. Today we kicked off Companion Week, a celebration of Link’s many partners and allies throughout the Zelda series. Some of you may have already checked out today’s Daily Debate (Maybe I should have translated the idea into a full-on editorial instead of a debate article?), which considers the likelihood of a Zelda companion turning to a life of evil. I made the…

Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Red Hood and Batman. Xehonort and Ansem the Wise. The theme of masters and apprentices is as old as fiction itself, and as is the case with many relationships, these pairings don’t often end well. In all of the above examples, former friends and peers were turned against each other. Some by circumstance; some by choice. A feeling of being held back or unappreciated is common, as is a good old-fashioned desire for power. In…

We’re kicking off Companion Week here at Zelda Dungeon, which means that over the next several days, we’ll be celebrating Link’s many partners, mentors, and friends. As fans and as fellow adventurers in the Zelda world, we hold these companions with special regard; some more than others, but you get the point. There will be plenty of praise showered on these Zelda companions over the next few days, but we figured we’d start the week by looking at them in…

If you’re a Zelda fan, you’ve almost definitely thought about adorning your home with some kind of Hyrulean flourish. Have you ever wanted to own your own set of Sage Medallions? Or perhaps the luster of Wind Waker’s Goddess Pearls keep you up at night? Well look no further than the fine wares of Chinook Crafts, true artisans of resin and silicone. With a fine selection of Zelda gubbins to covet, from shiny Rupees and Heart Containers, to Boss Keys, Gossip…
