Being a big-time fan, commercials are never the first place I hear about a new Zelda game, but they can certainly hype me up as one gets close to launch. Whether or not they’ve convinced fans to pick up a new game, the Zelda series has quite a few iconic television ads. From heartwarming, to bizarre, creative, and catchy, we have a fantastic selection of commercials to choose from — but which one is the best? Get ready to open…

Since late 2016, publisher VIZ Media has been releasing special “Legendary Edition” versions of Akira Himekawa’s popular The Legend of Zelda manga series. These deluxe editions — which are available for the Ocarina of Time, Oracle of Ages & Seasons, Majora’s Mask & A Link to the Past, The Minish Cap & Phantom Hourglass, and Four Swords adaptations — have featured new covers and colored art pieces by Himekawa. Fans who have not yet picked up these Legendary Editions now have…

Highlights of the Zelda series, such as Ocarina of Time or Breath of the Wild, stand as staples of the franchise. As a result, however, they tend to outshine other gems, as other games are pushed to the “back burner” and regarded with less value. Whether judging based on nostalgia, quality, accessibility, or attention in the media, some Zelda games tend to fall through the cracks. I would say that Spirit Tracks or The Minish Cap never quite get the…

Two of the more unique entries in the Zelda franchise are the multiplayer experiments Four Swords and Four Swords Adventures. Utilizing the titular weapon, Link was able to split himself into four separate versions of himself, each adorned in a different color. These Links were then able to be controlled by four separate players for co-operative questing with a splash of competitive spirit for good measure. The closest we’ve gotten to recapturing that formula was the 2015 3DS title Tri Force Heroes, but…

Grab your Game Boy Advances (and bring your link cables too) as we do a deep dive this week into the single most underappreciated Zelda game – Four Swords Adventures! I just finished playing a solo run of this game for the first time and have lots of thoughts – how is it solo compared to multiplayer? Is it a pain to set up? How does one player control four Link’s? And then we shift over to the story, which…

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…

Remakes have become a staple of the Zelda franchise ever since the release of Ocarina of Time 3D in 2011 – excluding the more obscure BS Zelda no Densetsu, Link’s Awakening DX, and Ocarina of Time: Master Quest. Since the N64 classic first hit the 3DS, five remakes have been released in the forms of Four Swords Anniversary Edition, The Wind Waker HD, Majora’s Mask 3D, Twilight Princess HD,  and the recent Link’s Awakening. Every remake has its fair share of additions and changes, big…

When Nintendo wanted to port the original Legend of Zelda to the Game Boy Color, it turned to Capcom’s Flagship development team to get the job done. A recent Inside Gaming video delved into the many snags this Zelda port deal hit during development. It also discusses how, after making some tough decisions to fulfill its agreement with Nintendo, Flagship went on to produce some of the series’ most unique titles: Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, and The Minish…

The Zelda series has evolved both in graphics and gameplay over the years, and maybe the most obvious shift was the camera angle. The original Legend of Zelda featured an overhead camera angle that (with the exception of Zelda II’s side scrolling map), persisted for several games after that until Ocarina of Time. Ocarina of Time completely revolutionized the experience as well as 3D gaming in general, featuring a third person camera angle while also introducing Z-Targeting, among other things….
