Breath of the Wild introduced us to an entirely new weapon system that no other Zelda game has ever seen. Though it came as a major disappointment and inconvenience to many, the introduction of different breakable weapons set Breath of the Wild apart from all other Zelda games. With Breath of the Wild 2 on the horizon it makes one wonder if new weapon types and classes will be introduced to the game. I really hope that there are new…

It can be quite trying to wait for a game to be released, especially after it has been announced. We can’t wait to experience for ourselves the new interpretations of a franchise, what traditions will be kept and yet what new and exciting things will stir it up into something invigorating. However, it’s good to keep in mind that games that take long periods of development prior to public release do so in order to ensure quality. Nintendo in particular…

The Legend of Zelda series has always revolved around three main characters – Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf (or Ganon.) The player classically plays as Link, the hero, and is typically the main character of any Zelda game. With the series turning 35 this year it begs the question would the series ever evolved to where Link was not the main character anymore, or became the secondary character? Honestly it would be odd to see another hero besides Link set off…

It’s finally over. After what seemed like several years worth of time in the last 365 days, we’re finally leaving the year 2020 behind us — a year that began with such promise and potential, but didn’t turn out the way anyone expected. As well as offering a big congratulations to everyone for simply making it through the year, we wanted to celebrate with one of our favorite annual traditions here at Zelda Dungeon: laying bare our hopes and dreams…

It’s a new year, and with tons of possibilities on what the next 12 months have in store, there comes refreshed hopes of game releases! I’m definitely hoping that this year we can look forward to the release of the sequel to Breath of the Wild; but with that prospect looming, it makes me wonder: will these games finally be given a timeline placement, or is Nintendo content to never pin them down? Zelda fans typically have a mixed bag…

Minor Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity spoilers below!   In Breath of the Wild we meet the Champions from 100 years ago – Mipha, Revali, Urbosa, and Daruk were the Champions who piloted the Divine Beasts in order to combat Calamity Ganon. All four of the brave Champions met their demise at the hands of the Calamity; their spirits trapped within in the Beasts. 100 years later Link travels through Hyrule to free their spirits with the help of four…

Four beautiful Great Fairies live among the vast wilds of Hyrule. In Breath of the Wild one must collect rupees to pay in tribute to the fairies in order for them to enhance your clothing. By the time you reach your fourth fairy you have to shell out 10,000 rupees! That’s a lot of money, especially if you’re still early in the game and want armor upgrades. This begs the question as to whether the player will have to pay…

*spoilers for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity* I see Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity as a success when it comes to placing the Hyrule Warriors-style of gameplay into the world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The combat is fluid and matches well with fighting mechanics in Breath of the Wild. Each character varies in style and each enemy can be defeated in many different ways, creating, much like in Breath of the Wild, and open-world approach…

We are all familiar with the land of Hyrule and it’s many nooks and crannies throughout the series. There have been a few games that took us outside of Hyrule, be it Lorule, Termina, Skyloft or Holodrum. In some of the games we may adventure somewhere else but still visit Hyrule at some point. No matter where the journey takes us and Link, he is always the hero. There has been a lot of talk about the upcoming Zelda titles…

Out of the 21 games in the Zelda series, only five can really be considered a true sequel to a previous game. Zelda II is a direct sequel to the very first Legend of Zelda game, Majora’s Mask follows the events of Ocarina of Time, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks form a sort of trilogy with The Wind Waker, and A Link Between Worlds is a pseudo-sequel to A Link to the Past. The other 75% of the games in the series, while they hold important places in the much-disputed timeline, generally tell…
