Over a year ago, we interviewed Zelda YouTube theorist Cuccolover about the first Zelda theory on her own channel, titled Sacred Salvation, as well as the differences between self-publishing videos and writing for other channels (which she had done previously). Sacred Salvation was only the first part of an overall theory which was planned to be split into three parts. With time, we’ve finally gotten the second video titled Divinity’s Doom, which you can watch above! Beginning where Sacred Salvation…

Mods can often breathe new life into older games, whether it’s upscaling the graphics or simply adding some kind of new experience. Recently The Wind Waker received a mod titled “The Wind Waker Rewritten,” which adds over 10,000 new lines of dialogue to the game! Created by a modder named aproxm, this ROM hack completely changes the vibe of The Wind Waker through the in-game text. It looks to add a lot more humor, aimed at an older audience. Think…

While in this drought of Breath of the Wild sequel news, fan projects can be an oasis for many Zelda fans. One project that has caught our eye here on Zelda Dungeon is Hyrule Apocrypha, a Zelda fan zine with a focus on expanding on canon lore to tell the “lost tales of Hyrule”! As the overview of the zine states: “Hyrule is full of unsolved mysteries and unanswered questions. There are battles and histories we’ve heard of but have…

As fans, sometimes we just want to share our favorite media publicly! Usually it’s by wearing a shirt, or bringing along some kind of accessory, but some fans make it a little more permanent. Recently on the Moore Motorsports Garage YouTube channel, a car was customized with a carved out hood shaped as the Royal Family’s Crest, and LED lights were added to illuminate the carving! The video found above is actually a full length DIY process video for anyone…

I’ve always loved looking at the official artwork and concept art for Zelda games. Groups of the games have their own unique art styles that sometimes aren’t very apparent from the in-game art style, which also can have it’s own unique renderings: from pixel art, to attempts at realism, as well as cel-shading. Overall, with both the game art and official artwork, I find myself sometimes wondering what the future could hold for this series. So what styles do we…

I love coming across relaxing instrumental covers of my favorite video game music. I sometimes use it to unwind after a long day, it’s also not uncommon for me to pop in my earbuds during my day to get a little bit of escapism out of the music. While listening to this piano and flute cover of “Ballad of the Windfish” performed by cover artist MusicMike512, featuring Madalyn Music, I knew this would fit perfectly into my rotation of video…

Conceptually, the Yiga Clan is really interesting. The idea of the Sheikah having a schism, and the portion deciding to split off pledging themselves to help Calamity Ganon feels like it should lend itself to a lot of interesting plot points. Naturally I was really excited to see what role they would play in the greater scheme of Breath of the Wild when I was doing my first playthrough of the game. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed because they did…

June is right around the corner, and although E3 has been canceled this year, most of us are probably still anticipating a Nintendo Direct. If all goes as usual, it would be the perfect opportunity to finally do a full showcase of the sequel to Breath of the Wild. Give us the subtitle, show some in depth gameplay, and let us get details on the story! Last year after the short E3 trailer for the game, I started speculating what…

The Zelda series is celebrating 36 years currently! We know so much already about various games and guides that have released in this timeframe, yet much still remains shrouded in mystery. Bit by bit, our friend Melora, who runs History of Hyrule, is archiving rare Zelda guidebooks, magazines, and manga digests that are no longer in print. Her most recent archival endeavor was to find and scan the Japanese version of the guidebook for The Legend of Zelda, known in…

This article contains content that potentially spoils an aspect of Breath of the Wild 2‘s plot.  This past weekend, the Italian voice actor for Breath of the Wild‘s Daruk, Pietro Ubaldi, participated in a meet and greet at the Milano’s Comics and Games convention in Italy. During this event, Ubaldi talked briefly with Emanuele Baserga of Lega Hyrule, an Italian Zelda fan community. The voice actor was asked about the upcoming sequel to Breath of the Wild, to which he replied…
