Sharp cricked his neck as he turned to see his younger brother Flat, who had just burst through the entrance of their living quarters in Hyrule Castle.  Flat’s cheeks were flushed with red and he was desperately heaving air into his lungs.  He bent over and placed his delicate hands on his knees in an effort to catch his breath. Sharp hooted with mirth at the sight of his brother. “Dear Flat, I don’t believe I’ve seen you out of…

When I discovered the Tetraforce theory, I felt as though I had stumbled upon an old, unattended magic shoppe obscured by ivy in a forgotten alleyway. It was like I was being beckoned to read from a spellbook opened to an accursed page. I was deep in the Zelda Wiki and it warned in bold letters that this was a non-canon theory, which just piqued my interest further. The Tetraforce is as compelling a conspiracy theory as they come. It’s…

Three years later, the story trailer for Breath of the Wild from the Nintendo Switch Presentation remains iconic, as the Zelda fanbase still praises its music, its editing, and the ways it builds exposition. In fact, our staff recently named it the best trailer of the past decade. This 2017 trailer was a precursor to one of the best installments of the franchise, and perhaps even caused a rivalry with the famed Ocarina of Time. YouTuber GreatBitArcade has melded these…

Universal Studios announced late last year that a third theme park would be added to its Orlando-based resort, joining established parks Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Since that announcement, there has been a lot of speculation about what type of attractions would be present in the park — dubbed Epic Universe — and what media properties would be represented. Well, during an earnings call yesterday, Universal’s parent company Comcast confirmed that Super Nintendo World would be joining the…

As the name might suggest, Skyward Sword was, well, set in the sky. And like any good cloud-top adventure, it featured bird-like transport in the form of a Loftwing. These large, colourful birds look like some sort of cross between a parrot and ostrich, and they act as a special companion to each character in Skyloft. In Skyward Sword, the player could summon their Loftwing and fly around the overworld, visiting different islands and meeting new characters. However, its seems that none of…

There is nothing quite like great video game music. While playing a game, there are times when I just pause and lose myself in the soundtrack. Whether I’m lost in an epic RPG or exploring the fields of Hyrule, the music is as important as the game itself. Browsing YouTube, it’s easy to find a hard rock or heavy metal cover for even the most chill game track. However, some of my favorite covers are orchestral or a cappella. The…

At some point, almost everyone has wondered what their favorite game would be like with the mechanics of another game mashed inside. In fact, people have modded popular games in order to insert some crazy, cool stuff within! So what mechanic from another game would you like to be included in your favorite Zelda game? I can’t take credit for this idea because my husband came up with it, so for fun I’ll include his and then add mine. He…

There are several things I can always count on to start a new year: first, the bitter cold of the American Midwest; second, Hockey season in full swing. And finally, I have a full week of gaming speedruns to watch! The AGDQ 2020 speedrunning marathon has come and gone, having raised $3.16 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Among many notable runs, one of the highlights was the Legend of Zelda relay race. Nine runners went head-to-head, trying to finish…

Where does Twilight Princess rank among your favorite Legend of Zelda titles? In our newest series on YouTube, the Definitive Ranking of Zelda, we set off to answer that very question. Gooey and I have rated the game across ten categories which we believe make a Zelda game special. We also polled both the Zelda Dungeon staff, as well as the community, in order to try to get a full picture of how Twilight Princess stacks up. The results are…
