A new decade may now be upon us, but we at Zelda Dungeon wanted to take one final look at the decade that was before we shut the door on it completely. The 2010’s can be seen as a rollercoaster ride for The Legend of Zelda, full of many euphoric highs and a few disappointing lows. But with all things said and done, it’s hard to look back at the past ten years and say that the series didn’t experience…

There are a lot of things to love about the Zelda series. Its sprawling worlds, intuitive gameplay mechanics, legendary stories, and wonderful, charming characters make the series truly special. I started playing the games from a young age, and the series’ deft approach to introducing likable characters has impacted my perception of what it means to have a sympathetic character players can relate to. It’s hard to pick just one, but for me, I think Ravio may be the character…

Usually pretty black and white, the morals of the Zelda series’ characters tend to be pretty clear. There is an evil force that is out only for themselves and will cause untold destruction to achieve their goals. And then there are the people of Hyrule, who must fight back against said evil. However, sometimes the line between good and evil is blurred, and when that happens, what decides if one is worthy of forgiveness? The two key figures at the center…

First of all, Happy New Year! Whether you’ve been in the new decade for almost a full day, or you’ve just finished your celebrations, we’re here to party with you through the next 12 months. Kicking off the new decade, and in an attempt to look past the incoming January blues, we’re thinking about what’s coming up for the Zelda series in the next 10 years. The past decade saw the release of 4 brand new titles (Skyward Sword, A Link Between…

3D-printing has allowed creators to literally build their ideas in new and exciting ways. Artists can now fulfill their passion in what feels like an instant. This is what Jukka Seppänen has done by building up Princess Zelda from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from the ground up. In this time-lapse video, Seppänen shows off a bust of Princess Zelda from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that they themselves created. If you have a 3D-printer, then you can build this yourself. All you…

Dungeons & Dragons is a wonderful cultural phenomenon that has experienced a resurgence in recent years. With a variety of classes and gameplay styles to choose from, coupled with the imaginative stories Dungeon Masters weave for their players, the Dungeons & Dragons fever is going strong. It’s fun to imagine existing video game or anime characters with a Dungeons & Dragons class. If I had to pick just a few Zelda characters, I would go with: Link: Paladin or Bard…

I can’t believe it’s that time already, but here we are: it’s time for Zelda Dungeon’s 2019 Edition of the Best. Zelda. Ever! Two Zelda games were released this year — one a remake, and one a spinoff — but maybe most crucially, the next mainline installment of the series was teased at E3 when Nintendo revealed the sequel to Breath of the Wild was to be released! Exciting times are ahead for Zelda fans no doubt, but let’s focus…

Being one of the most iconic weapons in gaming history since the release of A Link to the Past, Master Sword has, to no one’s surprise, become a recurring item in the Zelda franchise. A conduit for the Goddess’ magic and an instrument for Link’s courage, the blade has driven back evil and its many incarnations game after game. Ever since its creation, it has been the hero’s weapon of choice, with Skyward Sword revealing its origin and the fact that…

When Nintendo shocked fans with the announcement of a completely remade Link’s Awakening for Switch, it joined a growing list of popular video game remakes, such as Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy VII. Opinions on the game’s new design were varied but the general consensus was great! With such a positive reception around the Link’s Awakening remake, it’s fair to wonder what other Zelda games could use a new coat of paint. Staying inside the idea of a remade…

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…
