Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Author: Kristen G. Rosario

Nintendo dropped the announcement today of the newest addition to the Nintendo Switch family, the Nintendo Switch Lite. It’s a smaller, portable-only version of their current-gen system, and will be coming out September 20th. It features notable changes, like the replacement to a much more traditional D-Pad, irremovable Joy-Cons, and a lack of HD Rumble or IR Sensor. This has been rumored for quite some time now. The general consensus for the new model is that if you already have…

In an announcement that doesn’t come as too much as a surprise to some Nintendo fans, the Big N announced this morning that they will be releasing the Nintendo Switch Lite. As previously rumored, this version of the Switch is smaller than the original version and is a portable-only model. Not only are there no detachable Joy-Cons, but you cannot put it into a dock to play on your TV. And of course, because you cannot detach the Joy-Cons, this…

The Link’s Awakening remake is easily one of my most anticipated games of the year. Considering how extensive I played it to help train for last year’s Zelda Dungeon Marathon, I feel like I know most of the game inside and out. The characters, the music, and especially the story are what makes the game such a classic. That’s why I was so psyched when a few months ago, Nintendo unveiled that a remake was coming. While the art style…

I am SUPER PSYCHED like everyone else here is for Link’s Awakening Remake and Cadence of Hyrule! Oh, and then there was that Breath of the Wild sequel title something or whatever that got confirmed too. All jokes aside, holy crap this has been a good Summer to be a Zelda fan. The theory’s coming out for the E3 2019 First Look Trailer for the next Zelda title have gone through the roof too. Time travel, darker than Majora’s Mask, Princess…

Who would have thought we would be post-E3 not with one, but two DLC fighter announcements for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? In a very pleasant surprise, Nintendo unveiled the next two characters that are a part of the Fighters Pass: The Hero from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, and Banjo-Kazooie. Even though some people assumed getting Banjo-Kazooie would be a real challenge (considering Microsoft owns the rights to the bear-bird duo), apparently that wasn’t the case. In…

The Sheikah are one of the more mysterious tribes that inhabit the Zelda series. They have only shown up or have been briefly mentioned a handful of times in the franchise. The Sheikah even possess “Atlantean-esque” technology, wherein they seem to be centuries ahead in terms of magical and technological capabilities. Now while it would take forever to analyze where they were in every single title in the series, the Zelda theorist we’re looking at today, Zeltik, wants to primarily focus on…

Getting to do something you absolutely love to do is a dream that everyone has. It’s one of the primary reasons I enjoy working for Zelda Dungeon. Having the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite game series of all time each and every day is a delight. Of course, getting to work on your favorite franchise is a whole different challenge in itself. Nobody knows how challenging it is to choose who should work on the Zelda series…

The first big surprise to come from Zelda this year was the announcement of Cadence of Hyrule. Combining the rhythmic gameplay style of Brace Yourself Games’ Crypt of the Necrodancer with the music and adventuring for which that the Zelda series is known seems to have paid off. While there is a bit of a learning curve with knowing how to play the game, one of its biggest draws has to be the title’s remixed music. And one very well-known composer in…

The Zelda series has been thrown back into the gaming spectrum thanks to the Breath of the Wild sequel, Cadence of Hyrule, and the upcoming remake to Link’s Awakening. Series producer Eiji Aonuma and his team have definitely been very busy with getting these projects up and running. And of course, the Link’s Awakening has been in the main spotlight thanks to its most recent showing at this year’s E3. In a recent interview with Kotaku, Eiji Aonuma talked with…

Throughout many discussions among the writers here at Zelda Dungeon, we have always found it bizarre that there hasn’t yet been an officially licensed Zelda tabletop RPG. Not only is the money there, but there is a vast part of the Zelda fanbase that loves playing tabletop games too. Members of the fanbase have therefore created their own Zelda-inspired tabletop RPG’s, and today we’re looking at one of the newest ones to enter the fray. Created by Elemental Knight, The…
