Imagine if certain things had turned out differently in the history of Zelda, if just a couple changes had been made in the “real world timeline”, how different the Zelda series might look today? It’s kind of a mindbend, thinking about how history might look completely different, so this week, the gang goes full bore into the thought experiment to speculate and hypothesize what would have happened if certain things had been different over the years. What if Skyward Sword’s…

Since Ocarina of Time, Nintendo has generally divided the Zelda series into two halves: 3D home console games and 2D top-down games for their handheld consoles. With Nintendo merging their home and handheld consoles into one package with the Switch, the future of top-down Zelda games has been unclear. On the one hand, we did receive Link’s Awakening for the Switch in September 2019, but the last new 2D game was Tri Force Heroes in October 2015, over five years ago. On home consoles…

Recently, Nintendo dropped another huge surprise on its gaming community, releasing Pac-Man 99 without warning shortly after the end of Super Mario Bros. 35. The Pac-Man game helps to fill the void in what is becoming a regular genre for the Nintendo Online community. The battle royale style elimination genre has been around, but featuring retro arcade games is certainly a welcome and popular twist. Nintendo certainly raised some eyebrows when the company applied the genre to the classic NES hit Super Mario…

It’s finally over. After what seemed like several years worth of time in the last 365 days, we’re finally leaving the year 2020 behind us — a year that began with such promise and potential, but didn’t turn out the way anyone expected. As well as offering a big congratulations to everyone for simply making it through the year, we wanted to celebrate with one of our favorite annual traditions here at Zelda Dungeon: laying bare our hopes and dreams…

Ever since I was a small child, I always looked up to my big brother. I can’t remember a video game he could not either beat or just plain kick butt at. Being the younger sibling, I of course wanted to play with him, so of course, our mother would make him get multiplayer games so I could play too. I remember playing Sonic The Hedgehog 2 for Sega and feeling I had the biggest role in the game. As…

Pop culture and animation YouTube channel Mashed have rendered two sweet cartoon theme song animations starring Zelda and Link. The first, “Zilda,” is a take on the opening for Netflix’s Hilda, which made a splash on debut with its theme song penned by indie pop star Grimes. Fans of Hilda may even note that the show shares some adventuring DNA with The Legend of Zelda. The second portion of the video takes on the iconic theme song for Cartoon Network’s…

The end of this year is rapidly approaching, which means that it’s time for my favorite annual tradition here at Zelda Dungeon: Best. Zelda. Ever! While no new Zelda games were released this year, we did have some DLC come out for Cadence of Hyrule and we’re looking forward to the upcoming release of a new Hyrule Warriors game: Age of Calamity! The prequel to Breath of the Wild just missed the cut for this year’s list, so you’ll have…

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will soon be upon us, and the newest trailer leaves Zelda fans with many questions. Some of the biggest questions that fans have stem from the mysterious figure featured at the end of the newest trailer. We only see this cloaked person for a few seconds, but the fan base was alive with theories after the trailer dropped. Some have begun to ask if the figure was Vaati or Yuga. Vaati has been a recurring…
