I’ve covered The Legend of Zelda news for almost five years now, and in that time, I’ve seen more rumors than I can possibly hope to count. Something about Nintendo’s tentpole fantasy series attracts off-the-wall predictions, unverified leaks, and outright hoaxes, as fans clamor for and cling to any new information on the next Zelda adventure. And that’s one reason why this job is so much fun! Seeing the passion of the fanbase explode with each new release cycle fuels…

Update: Nintendo France has also updated an extended trailer for Link’s Awakening, with a stronger focus on the title’s gameplay features. You can check it out below. Original: Zelda fans can rejoice in knowing that Link’s Awakening is less than two weeks away from its September 20th release on Nintendo Switch. With the release imminent, Nintendo has been spending considerable time and money marketing the game. This thirty-second teaser trailer from Nintendo France gives fans a quick look at the remake. The…

This article will contain major Game of Thrones spoilers. Read at your own risk!   The Mother of Dragons. Breaker of Chains. Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea. The Unburnt. The Dragon Queen.   All of these are names given to Daenerys I Targaryen, thought to be the last of the Targaryens; an ancient house with whom dragons blood coursed through their veins, who sat upon the Iron Throne of Westeros as the rulers of the Seven Kingdoms. The daughter…

Throughout the Zelda series we have seen our hero Link hold a variety of professions. Our often sleeping hero has been a student at the knight academy, a ranch hand, an apprentice engineer, a blacksmith’s apprentice, and most recently in Breath of the Wild, the chosen knight of Princess Zelda. Link’s jobs have been fairly basic and fitting for the type of world that Hyrule is set in, but what else could Link do? Upon writing this I was going…

Welcome back to Zelda Runners, your bi-weekly recap on everything Zelda speedrunning. This week’s article, as you might have gathered from the title, is a special recap of the recent Summer Games Done Quick 2019 event, which took place last week. The event, which happens twice each year (Awesome Games Done Quick takes place in January), raises money for two charities. The summer variant uses donations from viewers, Twitch Subsriptions and funds raised from their various sponsors, and this year…

I may be a special breed of internet user, but I absolutely love video content of the strange, surreal, and purposefully bad variety. I don’t appreciate such videos on any scale of quality, but rather on a scale of irony that can only exist on the wacky world of the internet. With that said, I have found a Zelda fan animation that tickles the mysterious part of my brain that appreciates such content, and I couldn’t help but share it…

How goes it, everyone! Are you ready for another exciting round of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? It’s been a few months since the contest last featured a screenshot from Breath of the Wild. In fact, other than an image of a BotW mod, we haven’t featured the latest Zelda title since January. It’s about time we give Breath of the Wild another shot in the spotlight, I’ll say! So let’s get this party stated with a silly image of a…

Hello and welcome to another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest! We’re back from a week break, and we’re ready for you to share your wittiest comments, captions, and Photoshops with us right here. Last week, we shared a recent episode of YouTube show Boundary Break, in which friend of the site Shesez looked beyond the camera in A Link Between Worlds to see the game from a whole new perspective. It turns out that Link’s character model and…

The Legend of Zelda has offered players a large variety of side quests over the years. We’ve seen everything from a quest to help a kid start a successful business, a task to defend a small farm from an alien invasion, and everything in between. But let’s take a look at the rewards for these optional tasks, shall we? Which reward is best? While some might say that the journey is its own reward, or that the reward is the sense…

The development team of A Link Between Worlds faced an interesting challenge when animating the game. That challenge was the translation of the models from A Link to the Past‘s two dimensional world into the three dimensional world of their own project. By simply replicating the models as they were, the team came to undesirable results. By using the top-down view with these old models, only the top of Link’s hat could be seen. Game director Hiromasa Shikata described it as “some…
