Where does The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords rank among your favorite Zelda games? In our Best Zelda Ever rankings this year, Four Swords came in at number 20! And in this month’s Definitive Ranking episode, Gooey and Mases dive in and share their thoughts about The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition. Like with previous episodes, we also polled the staff here at Zelda Dungeon, along with the community as well, so you can view those results down below….

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…

Akira Himekawa’s manga adaptation of the Legend of Zelda series has long been a major touchstone for fans. The Zelda Dungeon Discord channel and article comments reveal that, for a good number of our community, the beloved graphic novels were a key first exposure to Link’s adventures. For older fans like me, the books have been wonderful to share with our children, as they flesh out the world and lore of Hyrule. Amid the flurry of excitement surrounding Hyrule Warriors: Age…

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…

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…
