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…

One of the best things about Breath of the Wild‘s gamplay and puzzle solving are the extremely flexible runes. These clever tools, which are tied to the Sheikah Slate, are used in puzzle solving, traversal, and combat. The runes also helped Nintendo to design interesting puzzles that often had more than one solution. One downside about runes was the fact that there were only 5 runes– not counting the camera or master cycle– in the game and no majors additions…

Ancient songs played a large part of the story in Breath of the Wild. As Link travels Hyrule he meets a Rito named Kass who offers to tell Link ancient stories of Hyrule through song. The traveling bard became a proprietor of quests throughout the game, so that begs that question, will we hear more ancient songs from Kass in Breath of the Wild 2? I would imagine from the teaser trailer for Breath of the Wild 2 that we…

One of my very favorite quests in Breath of the Wild was titled “From the Ground Up”. It’s an extensive quest line that starts soon after you finish building and furnishing Link’s house in the “Hylian Homeowner” quest. One of the construction workers, Hudson, leaves to go construct the new settlement of Tarrey Town, and the side quest can be accessed after this point. It has multiple objectives, like finding a select number of wood bundles, and encountering different people…

In Breath of the Wild, the Master Sword functioned in the story as Link’s burden, his task that is similar to Zelda’s own burden of accessing the goddess’ sealing power. It was mostly referred to as “the sword that seals the darkness” and it is what tied Link to the task of restoring peace to Hyrule in the event that Calamity Ganon returned. However, unlike requirements in Ocarina of Time, the Master Sword is not necessary to defeat Calamity Ganon in…

A couple months ago, the Zelda Dungeon writing team put their collective heads together to think of some specific in-depth changes they wanted to see take place from Breath of the Wild to its sequel. This week on the show, we go over the list of suggested changes and weight in on what we’d like to see! Recipe Books? A customizable base? Some forgeable weapons? More exuberant music? Underwater travel? A LINK THAT CAN TALK?! All this and more explored…

You know the adage, “never judge a book by its cover” — does that apply to games too? In my opinion it does! I’m not strictly talking about the box art of a game, but more like the promotional art and the game’s trailer. A lot of people make first opinions about a game based upon what they see before making their purchase. So, does the visual style of a Zelda game determine whether you’ll play it or not? Or…

Greetings, Zelda fans! I hope you’re ready for yet another exciting entry of ZD’s Caption Contest! There have been a lot of big-name game releases the past few months, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Final Fantasy VII Remake. The latter game mentioned has the been the one I’ve seen the biggest buzz for, as FF fans have praised (or lamented) the ways in which the classic adventure was updated for modern audiences. So, in honor…

Hey, everybody! We are back with another Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest! It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been a full year since we saw the debut trailer for Breath of the Wild‘s sequel. And it’s definitely hard to accept the possibility that we won’t see another glimpse of the game any time in the near future. The extreme desire for official Zelda news has become a bit of a punch-line in the Zelda Dungeon staff room, especially with the…
