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…

Many have criticized Breath of the Wild for being more of a concept game rather than a plot-driven adventure like past Zelda games, with some describing the open world as an empty shell rather than a dynamic place. Whether that critique is fair or not, modder Waikuteru has used that “empty shell” to bring back some of the series’ most iconic places. The modder recently dropped two new projects, adding Skyward Sword’s legendary Sandship and Ocarina of Time’s fabled Lon Lon Ranch…

Most Zelda fans can agree that the Super Smash Bros. series has been lacking fresh Zelda content since the release of Super Smash Bros. Melee on the gamecube. We’d love to see a brand new character with a unique move set. From the moment Piranha Plant was announced I was impressed. It got my imagination going! If Nintendo can take such a simple enemy from the Mario series and give him a distinct quirky play style, I thought, why couldn’t they do that with a Zelda enemy? There are so many…

If you’ve never researched color psychology or color personalities, doing so is a great way to spend an afternoon. In short, these concepts focus on how particular colors can influence your mood or reveal bits about your personality. Ever wonder why most fast food companies use reds and yellows? That’s color psychology in action. Do you always wear the Zora Tunic in Ocarina of Time? Well, that might be your color personality in action. Surprisingly, for being the mark of a hero,…

One of the strangely appealing aspects to Animal Crossing is real time changes and limited events. As the seasons move, the virtual world moves with you. Spring fades into the heat of summer, and waking up to see the first snowfall of your virtual year is always thrilling. Anyone who plays mobile games knows that limited time in-game events around holidays can be quite exciting! So, how could a real-world calendar mechanic change gameplay in a Zelda title? There are plenty…

Howdy, Zelda fans! Care to join Zelda Dungeon for another exciting Caption Contest? Last week, we got an in-depth look at the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Min Min from ARMS. This reveal sent me on a search of the internet to find a Zelda screenshot depicting Link with long arms, and, well, the results were just too… grotesque to feature in the contest. But I did find this one of Link holding his arms up in…

Collecting games and associated memorabilia is a hobby of mine. I’ve been known to impulse buy a plush Bloodborne doll or order a Link tunic hoodie on a whim. When I’m not able to play video games, having these things is a simple reminder of the joy they can bring. With Breath of the Wild embracing a new era of technology in Hyrule, toys and gadgets were bound to become more advanced. Let’s be honest, Link is carrying around a…

As the Nintendo Switch library grows, so do its owners’ collections of game cartridges. Standard game cases get the job done, but how about adding a unique Zelda flare to your storage setup? Look no further than this handcrafted Bokoblin Chest Game Card Case. This creative case is available in white, grey, pink, and chocolate (with sprinkles!). Not only can you use it to store four Switch cartridges and two microSD cards, but the chest can double as a ring…

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…
