We’re less than a month into the 20’s, which means it’s time to revitalize the Jazz Age. And Jazztick, a quartet from Chile, is here to set the mood. Performed live, this rendition of Link’s Awakening‘s “Ballad of the Wind Fish” has amazing audio quality. Watching the crowd sway, cell phones ablaze, has definitely inspired me to find my local jazz hangout. So put down that copy of The Great Gatsby, because this rendition is the bee’s knees. In the world…

A new decade may now be upon us, but we at Zelda Dungeon wanted to take one final look at the decade that was before we shut the door on it completely. The 2010’s can be seen as a rollercoaster ride for The Legend of Zelda, full of many euphoric highs and a few disappointing lows. But with all things said and done, it’s hard to look back at the past ten years and say that the series didn’t experience…

The new year continues to deliver, as we have an all new Jamie Plays Zelda to sink our teeth into! All good things must come to an end, and we have arrived at the final episode of Link’s Awakening. It’s all come down to this folks! What secrets are being harbored within the Wind Fish’s egg? What will be the ultimate fate of the inhabitants of Koholint Island? Will Link and Marin live happily ever after? Join us as we close…

With a new decade upon us and the sequel to Breath of the Wild in development, fans can’t help but question how the future of the Zelda series will compare to the past. Many fans felt that the trailer for Breath of the Wild’s sequel was reminiscent to the darkness encompassed by Majora’s Mask, and a comment from Producer Eiji Aonuma has sparked further interest in a darker story-line for the upcoming title. Although Aonuma didn’t confirm that the game is…

Remixes of Zelda tunes are about as common as an Octorok at Toronbo Shores, yet they all manage to carry their own unique take. This remix, dubbed “Hypervigilant Hero (Shores of Koholint)“, which samples a variety of sounds and melodies from Link’s Awakening and beyond, is no exception. Combining elements of lo-fi, hip-hop, orchestra, and Nintendo of Japan’s marketing, this remix is as serenading as Marin’s singing. Chief Takinawa has done an amazing job here, so if you haven’t checked it…

As a self-taught guitarist myself, I love watching other guitarists showcase their skills. As a gamer, it doesn’t get better than when those two worlds collide. To celebrate the Link’s Awakening remake, guitarists Sophie Lloyd and Georgia Bell teamed up to recreate several of the game’s more memorable tracks. Included in their shred session are the “Main Theme”, “The Storm” (raft intro), “Trendy Game”, and “Boss Battle”, among others. Artist interpretations of classic songs can often be hit or miss….

This lovely new merchandise is available for purchase now at Nintendo Tokyo….

For people living in much of the Northern Hemisphere, the frigid curtain of winter has fallen upon the land. The once lush trees are now bare and snow has begun to coat the earth. While this time can stress out many people, it also brings an emotional warmth as the holiday season is also a time when we communicate/connect with family and friends across the world. This “Winter” ocarina cover of “Mabe Village” from Link’s Awakening is a great gift…

Holidays are just around the corner, and for The Legend of Zelda fans, that means one thing: gaming fest! If you’re lucky enough to have time off work, you can really get sucked into those games that have been crying out for your attention! Nintendo are also getting in on the act by producing this video that seeks to capture the sights and sounds of the festive session. Imagine that you have your own log cabin in the snowy woods….
