Stop motion animation is an iconic medium and has been providing us with art that no other medium can by combining real-world objects and film techniques into a form of animation, where anything is possible. Using figurines is a great way for the beginner to have access to this art form, and with highly articulated figurines such as Figmas and Nendroids, we are seeing more and more ways for stop motion to be accessible to anyone.

Most Zelda fans can tell you instruments of some variety have featured in nearly every Zelda title, some even being the namesake for the entry. Suffice to say, instruments play an incredibly important part in the Zelda series in both function and narrative. With the last even vaguely instrument-like item being the Bell in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, it’s been some time since we’ve seen an instrument in a mainline Zelda game, so what would you…

Ever since A Link to the Past, Zelda games have come to be known for a certain formula when it comes to structure. Each game primarily consists of Link plundering dungeons to progress through different parts of the adventure and yet each Zelda game has a unique take on this tried and true formula, varying the equation so that different results come out of it. A similar phenomenon has occurred with the story, only the tradition is one that didn’t…

The end of this year is rapidly approaching, which means that it’s time for my favorite annual tradition here at Zelda Dungeon: Best. Zelda. Ever! While no new Zelda games were released this year, we did have some DLC come out for Cadence of Hyrule and we’re looking forward to the upcoming release of a new Hyrule Warriors game: Age of Calamity! The prequel to Breath of the Wild just missed the cut for this year’s list, so you’ll have…

When it comes to Zelda, it seems to be almost universally agreed upon that the 3D games are superior to the 2D and “top down” games. The 2D games do have plenty of fans, however, and are beloved for many reasons. Until Ocarina of Time the only games we had were 2D, and we were given some amazing titles like A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening. And even when Nintendo started mostly making the 2D games for their portable systems, we were given titles like The Minish…

The Legend of Zelda franchise features no shortage of ghosts and ghouls. Hiding within every nook and cranny of the lore are creepy baddies and monsters plucked straight from someone’s worst nightmare — I’m looking at you, Dead Hand. As such, it’s only appropriate to ask: Which bit of Zelda lore has the most potential to be turned into a horror movie? Imagine a young Link trapped all alone at the bottom of the well, endlessly pursued by ReDeads and…

Where does A Link Between Worlds rank among your favorite Zelda titles? In our Best Zelda Ever ranking from last November, it wall-merged and shimmied it’s way into our top ten, taking the number 8 spot! As a surprising release from Nintendo back in 2013, A Link Between Worlds is the distant sequel to A Link to the Past that fans didn’t know they wanted; but once they got it, they wished it had released sooner! In this month’s Definitive…

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will soon be upon us, and the newest trailer leaves Zelda fans with many questions. Some of the biggest questions that fans have stem from the mysterious figure featured at the end of the newest trailer. We only see this cloaked person for a few seconds, but the fan base was alive with theories after the trailer dropped. Some have begun to ask if the figure was Vaati or Yuga. Vaati has been a recurring…

If there is one thing the Zelda series does right, it’s a good, old fashioned boss battle. Whether your hashing it out with Ghirahim or cutting Ganondorf down in his tracks, these games offer some epic fights. But with so many bosses to choose from, is it possible to pick your favorite? Can you decide which is the best boss battle in the Zelda series? There is a lot to bear in mind when choosing your favorite boss battle. Naturally,…
