Everything seems to be quite quiet on the Tears of the Kingdom news pipeline, but not for long I hope. Over the last few years Nintendo has hosted a Nintendo Direct in the month of February, and fans have come to anticipate and expect it. Now that some of Nintendo’s more recent launches have had their time to shine all eyes are on Tears of the Kingdom. So, with the hope of a Nintendo Direct in our future do you…

If you’re reading this article right now, you’re probably a fan of the Legend of Zelda series, we know that. Some of us, maybe more die-hard fans, revisit our favorite titles in the series from time to time. With that, we already know what to expect from each title and manage to choose the one that will most likely soothe our nostalgia for the series at that moment. For example: if I feel like having the experience of a more…

In every Legend of Zelda game released so far, Princess Zelda has always been… well… a princess. On rare occasions we have seen her either disguise herself as a different character (Sheik in Ocarina of Time) or be entirely unaware of her royal bloodline and true name (Tetra in The Wind Waker). But in both cases, she ultimately returns to her full standing as the Princess of Hyrule. In the latest installment of the series (as of the date of…

Among Breath of the Wild’s defining qualities is the freedom it offers, as players can take on the game’s myriad objectives and activities in virtually any order. Some folks will spend the first several hours gathering resources, while others may head straight for the nearest shrine. You may want to prioritize the main quest as much as possible and only complete the bare minimum of side content. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, then go test your luck with Calamity Ganon…

Despite being very different from many other dungeons in the Zelda series, the Divine Beasts did maintain Zelda tradition by having a reward for completing each dungeon. In addition to the heart container, the player also receives a blessing or magic spell from each of the four respective champions. These blessings (Urbosa’s Fury, Mipha’s Grace, Daruk’s Protection, and Revali’s Gale) are all extremely powerful spells that give Link new options for combat and navigation. Revali’s Gale, which create an updraft…

Breath of the Wild is filled with stunning landmarks and locations that can elicit an emotional response from the player. Whether it is the sun-drenched Gerudo Town, the frigid majesty of the Hebra Mountains, or the tranquil Zora’s Domain, the game is full of inspiring and imposing landmarks. Despite the numerous honorable candidates for the most important and iconic landmark in the game, one location stands above the rest: Hyrule Castle. The decaying ruin is the geographical and narrative heart…

Breath of the Wild took the traditional Zelda mold and flipped it on its head. Probably the biggest thing missing from Breath of the Wild were traditional dungeons. In lieu of dungeons like Eagle’s Tower, The Water Temple, or Ancient Cistern, we were given four dungeon-like beasts to tame and free from the control of Calamity Ganon. They worked more like larger Shrine puzzles in which the player had to unlock four terminals to reach the beast’s heart and then challenge…

Zelda fans looking to spice up board game night need not look far, as an awesome Zelda-inspired tabletop RPG is just beyond the horizon. Heroes of Cerulea is an upcoming tabletop role-playing game that draws heavy inspiration from the Legend of Zelda series, particularly the 8-bit and 16-bit classics The Legend of Zelda, A Link to the Past, and Link’s Awakening. Set in a fantasy world threatened by an evil Shadow King, Heroes of Cerulea will let you and your…

From the very start of the series, dungeons have been intrinsic to the identity of The Legend of Zelda. Whether they be levels, palaces, temples, cisterns, or Divine Beasts, these structures are in many ways collectively a crucial ingredient of the whole Zelda franchise. These areas, more than any other, sell the heroism, adventure, fantasy, and sense of discovery for which we come to Zelda again and again. “Dungeon” is in the name of this website for a reason, after…
