WE ARE SO CLOSE to the biggest gaming extravaganza of the year! E3 may seem a bit smaller than usual this year, but we’re still stoked to see what the Big N has up their sleeves! In the spirit of the industries biggest conference of the year, we go back and take a look at Nintendo’s best and worst offerings at the big show over the years. Everything from Wii Music to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Breath of the Wild…

A true staple of the Legend of Zelda series is the Rupee.  Green, blue, red or purple and other colors besides — the Rupee is the currency of Hyrule and is sometimes the key to allowing Link to move forward in-game.  A perfect example of this would be when Link must acquire the Deku Shield from the shop in Kokiri Forest in order to gain access to the Great Deku Tree in Ocarina of Time Rupees have appeared in almost every…

Love him or hate him, you cannot deny that Tingle has a certain mystique about him. What is it about this spandex-clad, rosy-cheeked, fairy obsessed gentleman that we just can’t get enough of? Is it the way he helps us navigate in Majora’s Mask? Those spellbinding magic words he created himself? Perhaps it’s that the long march of time makes us relate to him more and more with each passing year? Despite his numerous appearances—including the amazing Tingle-centric trio of games that…

While power, wisdom, and courage may be cornerstones of the Zelda series, there’s no denying that love is also ever-present. Love — whether it be plutonic, romantic, or otherwise — motivates characters throughout the series in myriad ways. Dozens of truly touching examples of affection exist in this series, begging the question, which of these bonds most exemplifies love? When I think of love there are three types that stand out as particularly admirable. First, a romantic pairing in which…

I’m not one to bring up my personal life in my work for Zelda Dungeon, but with this week being the Week of Love, I felt compelled to lift the curtain a bit on what goes on IRL. Last year, something pretty big happened for me: I got married! And as much as I love my new wife with all my heart, I must admit that she is very much not a gamer. She had only held a controller a…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas? What’s that? It’s the final edition of Zelda Runners in 2018, and we’re going out with a bang.

The Magic Medallions – Bombos, Ether, and Quake – are unique items that have only appeared in A Link to the Past and Four Swords Adventures. Two of the three medallions are vital to the story progression of A Link to the Past and can unleash devastating spells. But as a plus, not only are these items necessary to complete the story, all three Magic Medallions are very useful items that can be used to clear out dungeon rooms and…

Just as Super Mario 64 helped solidify much of the Mushroom Kingdom’s identity, Ocarina of Time brought a lot to the table in terms of Zelda’s mythology. How fans generally expect Hyrule to look, sound, and feel is largely derived from Link’s first 3D adventure. For instance, most of the series’ iconic, recurring races — the Gorons, the Gerudo, the non-river Zoras — made their debut in Ocarina of Time. The game even serves as the root of the franchise’s three-way…

Hello everybody, and welcome to Zelda Dungeon’s Best Zelda Ever 2018! Although no new Zelda games were released in the time between our list last year and now, by no means has it been a quiet time for Zelda fans. The biggest x-factor heading into our 2017 edition of the list was the recently released Breath of the Wild, and it would be fair to say that the latest Zelda adventure retains that x-factor title this year as well. As…
