The CD-i games have been a longstanding joke of the Zelda series. In fact, several Zelda memes originated from them. Before I spent some time with this group of proud and true Zelda fans, it seemed that alot of the discussions I’ve ever been a part of when it came to these games had been largely negative. However, I completely disagree with those negative views, and I don’t think Nintendo realizes that these games are actually pure gold. Let’s say Nintendo decides to release these…

The choices in characters, karts, and tracks to race your friends in Mario Kart has greatly expanded over the years. We’re at the point now that even Link is giving Mario a run for his money on the Master Cycle Zero. I imagine we’re pretty set when it comes to Mario Kart for a few more years. However, when the next one is inevitably released, would you like to see the Zelda series continue to have a presence? Or how…

I hope you all have been enjoying Zelda Dungeon’s side quest themed week so far! To keep things going, I’ve got an interesting little debate for you. Zelda fans far and wide know that one of the biggest things Majora’s Mask has going for it is its collection of intricate and captivating side quests. I often find myself wanting to pick up Majora’s Mask again, but there is always something that stops me just as I am about to. That…

Recurring races throughout the Zelda franchise helps keep the games familiar to the players. If you come across a Goron, or a Zora, you know you’re playing Zelda game, and are even sure to see some sort of fire and/or water themed dungeons and puzzles. Breath of the Wild brought back the Rito, who have until then only been seen in The Wind Waker. A lot of players really liked that, and it even inspired some debate about how the Zora and the Rito could coexist in one…

There are two types of people when starting a new file in a Zelda game. There are the purists that insist on always naming the hero Link, and those who like to be creative, and choose something different. Even in Twilight Princess there is the option to name Epona something different as well. But which of these two types of people are you? For me, I like to keep it simple, and name my file Link– and Epona for Twilight…

Yahaha! You read that right! One of our very own here at Zelda Dungeon has a knack for creating adorable and jingly Korok plushies. She started out with the one and only Makar from The Wind Waker, but has since added more of our favorite little tree sprites to her inventory. Included are Linder, Drona, Hollo, Rown, and Oakin! Now, if the idea alone of owning your very own Korok isn’t enough to have you sold, Fletcherable Creations is offering…

A common theme throughout the Zelda series has been the recurrence of many main characters. Obviously Link has taken part in every main title, and there have been many reincarnations of Zelda and Ganon/Ganondorf. Sometimes we get to see other characters like Impa, Beedle, or some king of Hyrule or another. The point is clear; if there is a certain character you like from the Zelda games, there is a chance they will pop up again in a future game. So the question is,…

Here’s a fun question I thought of while marathoning the Harry Potter movies a few days ago. Which Hogwarts houses would we find our favorite hero, princess, and villain in? And what about some of the other beloved characters from the Zelda series? At first, I thought the answers would be obvious. Link in Gryffindor, Zelda in Ravenclaw, and Ganon in Slytherin. But then I started thinking about other characteristics and how they may actually not belong in the most obvious places at…

It’s a new year, and what better way to go into the new year than to keep playing Zelda? Everybody likes to take this time of year to set goals for themselves, whether it concerns things like their health, or school/career aspirations, so why not add gaming goals in there as well? When it comes to the Zelda series, have you set any goals for yourself this year? Perhaps there is a game in the series you haven’t played yet–…

Christmas has come and gone, and for those of you that celebrate it, I’m sure there were plenty of Zelda-related items on your list. Personally, one of my gift requests was the Zelda chess set and one of my brothers was awesome enough to get it for me! Otherwise I’m kind of terrible and tend to buy a lot of Zelda stuff myself, making it hard for my family to think of Zelda-themed gifts to get me. But what about you? Did you get anything Zelda-related from…
