Category: The Minish Cap

Welcome back to your bi-weekly dose of Zelda speedrunning news! This week, we’re having a gander at some of the glitches found in The Minish Cap, as well as chatting to a prominent Breath of the Wild runner. I’ve also got the latest on a brand new Majora’s Mask TAS competition. Intrigued? Read on…   Now Playing Earlier in November, Speedrun.com, a huge database for most games’ speedrunning information, was subject to a security breach. This saw some users’ accounts compromised, including those of moderators. As…

The Minish Cap is a special Nintendo game. The only new Zelda game on the Game Boy Advance console, the game felt like having a grand SNES adventure in the palm of your hands. The Minish Cap was a rare example of a Nintendo sharing its series with other developers, as the game was developed by Capcom and Flagship. This remix of the Hyrule Town and Picori Festival themes was posted on OverClocked Remix by Lemonectric. The remix, called “A Bag Full…

The world of The Legend of Zelda is obviously very different from our own. The denizens of our humble realm don’t have ready access to magical instruments, we may never experience the inebriating effects of Chateau Romani, and we’ll — hopefully — never have to sprint for our lives from a vengeful Peahat. But for all the disparities between our world and Zelda‘s, one universal constant still exists: dog is still man’s best friend. Much like our world, the Zelda…

Hello everybody, and welcome to Zelda Dungeon’s Best Zelda Ever 2018! Although no new Zelda games were released in the time between our list last year and now, by no means has it been a quiet time for Zelda fans. The biggest x-factor heading into our 2017 edition of the list was the recently released Breath of the Wild, and it would be fair to say that the latest Zelda adventure retains that x-factor title this year as well. As…

It’s that time of the week again! No, not “just Tuesday”, it’s the latest edition of Zelda Runners. Missed out on the Mini Games Done Quick marathon at TwitchCon? Fear not, you can find details of that below. In Glitch Exhibition, we’re going full escapism mode, looking at the various methods used to escape early game locations. And, in Spotlight, we’re chatting to a Breath of the Wild runner about the game’s recent breakthroughs. This is a big-yun, so let’s…

Hyrule Castle is one of the most iconic locations in The Legend of Zelda series. The seat of Hyrule’s government has been featured in a variety of different forms throughout the years. With each new game, the designers and developers take time to create a new version of Hyrule Castle. Seeing the newest version of the iconic castle is always a treat for fans and critics, who are desperately waiting for news about the next  Zelda game. Hyrule Castle was…

As far as Zelda villains go, it’s sometimes easy to forget we’ve got more than just our tried and tested evil lord Ganondorf. A permanent series mainstay, ever reincarnating from original ancient evil Demise,  he remains the father of all things dire in the realm of Hyrule. He’s supported by the likes of crass clowns and hysterical harlequins with delusions of grandeur, like living sword Ghirahim or the Usurper King Zant. If they’re not Ganon, they’re often effeminate tricksters like…

Enemies. We all have our favorites, the ones we love, and the ones we love to hate. But, have you ever considered which you would want to be? Let’s say, hypothetically – everyone loves a good hypothetical, right? – you find yourself transported into the land of Hyrule. Darkness has fallen. Things aren’t looking so great; they’re bleak, and covered in the blackish-reddish-pinkish ichor of Malice. Ganon reigns supreme now. And you…aren’t the hero. In fact, it is your mission…

Ocarina of Time is considered by many to be one of the Zelda titles most deserving of an HD remake. While we did see the game remade for the Nintendo 3DS, we may have to wait a while for something like that to happen unfortunately. While we wait though, it would be interesting to see if Nintendo went in the reverse direction instead. Nintendo Wire decides to do just that in a recent animation video featuring a “De-Make” of Ocarina of…

Companion characters: sometimes, we love them for their guidance and their helping hands. Sometimes, they annoy us, and we can’t help but wonder if they are more trouble than they’re worth. But there is no denying that, when we need them most, they’ve got our backs – sometimes, we can’t just walk alone. Not even if we’re heroes. Not even if we’re Link. The hero of Hyrule has always carried his burdens without hesitation, but there have been several times…
