Dungeons and Zelda go hand in hand. They are like Link and Princess Zelda, Kafei and Anju, and Revali and his pride — one would not be complete without the other! Throughout the past 37 (whoa!) years of Zelda, we have seen a plethora of unique dungeons and temples in each entry in the series. These dungeons have always been a staple throughout each adventure in Hyrule, and they often pose challenges for our favorite green-clad hero, giving him the…

Throughout the Legend of Zelda series, we’ve seen our protagonist rise to heroism after first occupying (or apprenticing for) several different professions. In A Link to the Past, Link lives with his uncle, who is not clearly identified as belonging to one profession or another, though we can infer that he is a veteran soldier (given his ownership of both sword and shield). In the manga, he and Link are shown to be apple farmers. Given their proximity to the…

Get your headphones in, because this week, we’re taking a musical journey throughout the history of the Zelda series to rank and discuss every games main theme! We go back and find what works, what doesn’t, which games were short-changed, and which themes we would consider the best of all time. We’re playing every theme in the series, so sit back and groove out to the amazing music of the series. Don’t forget to let us know which main theme…

2023 looks to be the year of revival for the Zelda series, with Tears of the Kingdom mere months away from release! This new title is poised to take over the conversation among Zelda fans, but I have feeling it won’t completely drown out discussion about other beloved games in the series. Since 2017, Breath of the Wild has consistently been a hot topic online, as it seems like players are still unveiling new secrets almost six years later. Also, many of the series’…

With the new year already moving forward, I’ve been considering what Zelda game I want to replay first as I await The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Throughout a good year, I usually replay all my favorites, including Skyward Sword, Breath of the Wild, The Wind Waker, Majora’s Mask, and The Minish Cap. Though there is one title I can never get enough of no matter how many times I replay it: Ocarina of Time. This is the…

All of Nintendo’s remakes of Zelda juggernauts like Ocarina of Time and Link’s Awakening have been very successful, adding modern enhancements while keeping the spirit of the original. But the list of games they could remake is still pretty long, with games like Oracle of Ages, The Minish Cap, and A Link Between Worlds as top candidates. If I could pick the Zelda game Nintendo remakes next, it would be A Link to the Past. They could use the same…

The new year is finally here!  Many see it as a time of new beginnings, filled with opportunities to take and goals to make.  Some people make resolutions to eat healthier or to save money, and then there’s Zelda fans, who plan which games they are going to play throughout the year.  I can’t deny that I’ve already decided which titles are on my list! Naturally, Tears of the Kingdom is right up there.  I will play that game as…

As the Zelda series began to progress and technology improved, one of the greatest boons was the ability to thematically develop the dungeons. From the simplistic gimmick of Key Cavern to the dark history of Arbiter’s Grounds, Zelda dungeons went from cookie-cutter labyrinths to structures with personality and pizzazz. With the cold weather months upon us, I thought it would be pretty chill to look at the various ice-themed dungeons throughout the series? Which is your favorite? While The Minish Cap‘s Temple of Droplets has…

2022 didn’t give us much of anything new Zelda-wise. Despite the many rumors that circulated, we didn’t receive any new remasters and the biggest announcement was the Tears of the Kingdom title, and also the news that it is being delayed until 2023, when it was originally slated for 2022. However, 2023 could be the year we’ve been waiting for. With this new major title releasing in May, perhaps this is year where our beloved franchise will be revitalized and…

Another spin around the sun has come and went, and with it, the latest installment of Zelda Dungeon’s proudest yearly tradition: Best. Zelda. Ever! 2022 marked the first year in quite some time where we had no real Zelda activity. No new games were released, no new projects were announced, it was… quiet. Although we got a title for the long-awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild, 2022 seemed like a year that could best be described as the calm…
