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 world created in the Zelda series is much like that of a book.  For virtually all of the series’ history, it has featured silent characters with only text to provide dialogue.  Breath of the Wild recently changed this feature with one of the best elements of the game — its cut scenes.  These sequences offered an interesting opportunity to hear names and locations pronounced in a canon format for the first time ever.  Noted that Hyrule Warriors did the…

The Legend of Zelda series has traditionally been played from the point of view of Link, the hero of Hyrule. Very rarely do we get the chance to control another character. One of the few instances I can think of is in Hyrule Warriors, but that isn’t a mainline Zelda title. What if we were given the chance to control the actions of Ganon in a mainline game? I would love the chance to be able to play from the…

Hyrule Warriors was released on the Wii U in 2014. The original game is over five years old, but we now have the Definitive Edition, which includes all the downloadable content that had been released since the game initially came out. It had a unique story with a couple of new characters, and took us across time through popular Zelda titles like Ocarina of Time, The Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. The game gave us a unique spin on a…

It seems like the Breath of the Wild sequel is far from our grasp, but that has not stopped players from talking about what they hope for out of the new game. The game’s trailer that was revealed at E3 this year made many wonder and hope that Zelda would be a playable character. I hold this same hope, but I got to wondering: what kinds of weapons, skills, and unique abilities would I like her to have? Link was…

Fairies have always been around in the Zelda series, primarily aiding Link by healing him. But there are some special fairies that have stood out, becoming companions to Link throughout his adventures. Navi was the first companion fairy I met in Ocarina of Time. She was helpful in the sense of explaining the targeting system and giving the odd piece of wisdom about where to go next. Tatl followed in Majora’s Mask, although more begrudgingly to rescue her brother Tael…

I first played Link’s Awakening on my lime-green Game Boy Color when I was about nine or ten years of age. It was my second or third adventure with Link, but I remember absolutely loving it. I can vividly remember the first time I beat Moldorm. I was traveling with my dad to some sort of meeting, and he’d asked to sit quietly and play my game while he was in the meeting. As soon as I beat the Nightmare…

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,…

I’ve covered The Legend of Zelda news for almost five years now, and in that time, I’ve seen more rumors than I can possibly hope to count. Something about Nintendo’s tentpole fantasy series attracts off-the-wall predictions, unverified leaks, and outright hoaxes, as fans clamor for and cling to any new information on the next Zelda adventure. And that’s one reason why this job is so much fun! Seeing the passion of the fanbase explode with each new release cycle fuels…

Fierce Deity first appeared in Majora’s Mask on the Nintendo 64 in 2000. When Link wears the Fierce Deity mask, he transforms into an adult warrior with tremendous power and strength. The nature of the mask’s power is questionable, as it could be described as being just as dangerous as Majora’s. Once equipped, you can shoot beams from your double helix sword and generally make any boss fight in the game a lot easier! There have been many theories surrounding…
