The Intro Dungeon: a games first dungeon that acts both as a tutorial as to how the rest of the game plays, and as a standalone experience. That’s our definition anyways, so with that in mind, the gang discuss the 5 best intro dungeons in the series and give some honorable mentions to strong opening “areas”. We also shoot on the worst intro sections (no points for guessing mine) and what made them so lackluster. Come have fun as Corey…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild frustrated and exhilarated longtime fans of the series by breaking the traditional mold. The game offered ambiance over music, Shrines over dungeons, and a true ability to play the game in any order desired. Yet there is one key pillar of the Zelda narrative universe that the 2017 hit left well enough alone: the unquestioned morality of Link. The Hero of the Wilds, like his many predecessors, is good to his core….

A few days ago, a game titled Final Sword made its way onto the Nintendo Switch eShop. Developed by HUP Games Inc., Final Sword is an open world game described as “the original Action RPG of Nintendo Switch™ in 2020”. It is actually a port of a mobile game that was released in August of last year. Recently, Final Sword was thrust into the spotlight after a Twitter user discovered the game uses an arrangement of “Zelda’s Lullaby” as background…

I recently started reading the Zelda manga. So far I’ve been loving what I’m reading and I’ve been extremely impressed with the style of art, how it’s presented, and the enhancements on the story. I’ve read the manga adaptation of Ocarina of Time, and I am currently reading Twilight Princess. As I’ve been reading through Twilight Princess I kept thinking how much more I feel the manga enhances the game. So does reading the Zelda manga enhance your thoughts on…

Four years ago, we reported on news of a Zelda fan by the username Delmar001 working on “The Legend of Zelda Project: Hyrule Fantasy”. The goal was to recreate 1986’s The Legend of Zelda in 3D using the Unity Engine. Time passed, and we didn’t hear from Delmar for about two years between 2018 and this year. His silence was finally broken back in April, when he updated his blog, stating that after the short break he was finally ready…

Although official information about Breath of the Wild 2 is still being kept under wraps, YouTuber RwanLink already has another fan animation in order to tide fans over. The animation that preceded it, entitled “A New Cycle”, depicted Link and Zelda exploring mysterious caves before encountering a form of Ganon. The animation visualized commonly-held theories about the upcoming sequel, the practice carrying over to this recent animation as well. In particular, this new animation focuses on Princess Zelda and her desire to…

If I could say one thing about the Zelda fanbase, it’s that we’re an opinionated lot.  We like to discuss the finer details of the series, and we certainly don’t shy away from a debate, especially when our opinion isn’t very popular.  Whether we’re talking about our favorite Zelda title, the next upcoming game, or all that’s in between, we’ll tell you exactly how we feel, and you can bet we will be passionate about it! One of the most…

Mases and Gooey are back with more Zelda Warfare! In this episode, they are racing each other through the first King Bulblin fight! Mases remains in the lead with two points, but Gooey snagged a victory in the previous episode with his superb Sumo skills. Check out the video above to find out if Gooey ties things up, or if Mases expands his lead. I will say that this one is so close, making it easily my favorite episode out…

Many have criticized Breath of the Wild for being more of a concept game rather than a plot-driven adventure like past Zelda games, with some describing the open world as an empty shell rather than a dynamic place. Whether that critique is fair or not, modder Waikuteru has used that “empty shell” to bring back some of the series’ most iconic places. The modder recently dropped two new projects, adding Skyward Sword’s legendary Sandship and Ocarina of Time’s fabled Lon Lon Ranch…
