The Legend of Zelda is, in my humble opinion, the best a high fantasy action-adventure video game franchise in the world.  Care to know why?  Well, it’s got the perfect combination of a timeless story told through innovative and captivating gameplay, for starters.  Hero saves princess (and the world while he’s at it) through the blood, sweat, and tears of battle.  Then there’s the mysterious exploration — from the unknown monsters that lurk in the depths of a dungeon to…

We often hear people talk about how cool it would be to see their favorite Zelda game come to life as a movie.  They discuss which actors and directors are most suitable, and even debate where filming should take place.  Everything comes down to whether these choices will help the movie stay true to the beauty of the games, and honestly, I think it would be near impossible to do a project like that justice.  However, I do believe it’s…

Each sticker set features some in-game…

I love The Legend of Zelda.  All of the games are great, but I’m specifically more attracted to playing the 3D titles.  I’ve often asked myself why this is; could it be the more stunning visuals, or the more intricate music?  Could it be the mapping system, or some of the more unique fighting techniques that can only be found in 3D games?  Or, if I get down to the nitty-gritty of the matter, is it because I’m just not…

The official Zelda Timeline is one of my favorite things in the entire franchise.  It’s a really cool piece of information that creates structure within the Zelda universe, and at the same time, adds more depth to the series’ lore.  I also really love that the split in the timeline stems from Ocarina of Time, which is my all-time favorite game ever.  Finally, I quite enjoy the debates surrounding that split, such as whether it should be accepted, or whether…

Here at Zelda Dungeon, we know the community can get creative with ways to show appreciation for our favorite franchise.  Whether it’s collecting Zelda merchandise, cosplaying, or simply playing the games, you each express your love for the series in your own way.  Personally, I do a little bit of all those aforementioned activities, but there’s one more thing I’d like to add to my list, and that’s to get a Zelda-themed tattoo! I’ve seen some really cool tattoos that…

When we pick up our controller to play a Zelda game, we often slide straight into the mindset of Link and set off on wonderous adventure throughout Hyrule.  We might jump right into battle with some enemy or another, or decide to follow the odd sidequest or two.  It’s a hero’s life and if we’re playing the game, we’re usually onboard with that.  But what if that wasn’t our destiny?  What if we found ourselves in the position of an…

The Zelda series is host to a world of NPCs, each designed to fill space, offer advice and helpful hints, and even to deliver the odd side quest or two.  There are some popular NPCs that we love, like Anju and Kafei from Majora’s Mask, who’ve indeed delivered one of the most popular side quests in the history of the franchise, and then there are those that we find more irksome than the rest. My most recent playthrough of Twilight…
