I can’t believe it’s that time already, but here we are: it’s time for Zelda Dungeon’s 2019 Edition of the Best. Zelda. Ever! Two Zelda games were released this year — one a remake, and one a spinoff — but maybe most crucially, the next mainline installment of the series was teased at E3 when Nintendo revealed the sequel to Breath of the Wild was to be released! Exciting times are ahead for Zelda fans no doubt, but let’s focus…

The time for Christmas shopping is upon us at last! It’s likely that you, or someone you know has been making a list for their biggest wishes this holiday season. There are a lot of awesome games, merchandise and fan-made artwork out there that can satisfy Zelda fans, both young and old! I’d like to share a few of my favorite options that would be great for any Zelda themed wish-list! This year, Nintendo have treated fans to both Cadence…

It’s that time again for everyone to reflect on the top games of the year! Among a whirlwind year of new games, the Zelda series alone treated fans with two new titles to play through: Link’s Awakening and Cadence of Hyrule. So with awards season now in full swing, let us examine the recently-announced nominees for the 2019 Game Awards. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo’s flagship fighting game, has been nominated for Game of the Year, along with a handful…

This year was a big one for the Zelda series. In 2019, we not only caught the first glimpse of Breath of the Wild‘s sequel, but we received two new Zelda releases: Cadence of Hyrule and Link’s Awakening. We at Zelda Dungeon were certainly busy keeping up with all the action, and we were certainly excited to get our hands on each new game. However, looking back at the last several months, we can’t help but feel that the fanbase…

The year is winding down and gamers have been treated to a lot of new Zelda news, games, and surprises! It would take a while to hash out everything we’ve been treated to, but most importantly, we’ve gotten two new Zelda games this year! A spin-off in the form of Cadence of Hyrule and the remake of Link’s Awakening. Both games are very different, but which is your favorite? Honestly, I was excited for both! I had never played the…

When the discussion of the “next Zelda game” comes  up, we often think strictly in terms of the next mainline installment — a game that, depending on when the previous one released, could be anywhere from three to six years away. Even so, us Zelda fans aren’t exactly starved for content. Since The Wind Waker HD’s launch on September 20, 2013, we have seen at least one Zelda-related game release every year. From handheld quests to spin-offs to HD remakes,…

Perhaps one of the most surprising Nintendo releases this year was Cadence of Hyrule, a Zelda spin-off title developed by Brace Yourself Games, the indie creators behind Crypt of the Necrodancer. The game featured a return to Zelda‘s classic top-down camera and pixelated graphics. However, it came with a twist: rather than traditional Zelda movement and combat, the game focused on Crypt‘s rhythmic combat, wherein the player is only allowed to take actions on the beats of the current track. For some, this was…

Hello friends! We’re back after a week off due to to some technical snafus to talk all about MULTIPLAYER! Where have we been, and where could we be going? We brought in the expert, Kevin ‘KO’ O’Rourke, to help us talk Tri Force Heroes, Four Swords Adventures, Hyrule Warriors, Cadence of Hyrule and more and what aspects of those games we’d want want to see IF multiplayer were to be added to Breath of the Wild 2. Come hang and…

With Cadence of Hyrule’s release, we may be witnessing the dawn of a new era — one in which Nintendo is way more open about lending its most sacred properties to independent developers. Only time will tell, of course, but that won’t stop this man from dreaming about the possibilities that have just been created. Specifically, I’m dying to see more indie developers showcase their interpretations of the Hylian Hero’s adventures. Now, there are a few small-budget games that I’d…

Cadence of Hyrule, the new rhythm based game themed after Crypt of the Necrodancer dropped earlier this year! It’s a fun Zelda spin-off set to an amazing soundtrack and fun rhythmic dungeons to play through! The storyline takes you through four dungeons and two final bosses, but which is the best of the best? My personal favorite is Gleeokenspiel! I think Gleeokenspiel is the most fun of all the bosses that you encounter in the entire game. It’s not an easy…
