If you’re reading this article right now, you’re probably a fan of the Legend of Zelda series, we know that. Some of us, maybe more die-hard fans, revisit our favorite titles in the series from time to time. With that, we already know what to expect from each title and manage to choose the one that will most likely soothe our nostalgia for the series at that moment. For example: if I feel like having the experience of a more…

I am a Zelda dungeon fanatic (both in terms of in-game dungeons and this glorious website where we currently reside). Few things bring me as much joy as a good dungeon full of whimsical puzzles and memorable baddies do. However, there are some dungeons in the Zelda series that not only made me scratch my head, but almost made me rage-quit a few times during my first playthrough. Being difficult doesn’t mean that these dungeons were bad, but good heavens,…

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…

Even with the much anticipated launch of Tears of The Kingdom right around the corner, we know that the release of Zelda remakes and/or remasters is expected by the fandom every couple of years. Although rarer, remakes are way more distinguishable, as they reimagine and breathe new life into games in the franchise that may have initially been overlooked, especially by younger fans. In my case, for example, I never had the opportunity to play the Oracle of Seasons and…

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…

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…

Link isn’t the only adventurer relying on a trusty sword and board throughout the Zelda series. Many factions with similar goals of plunder inhabit these lands and more than a few have been of the swashbuckling variety. In fact, seafaring knaves have been a pretty consistent motif throughout the franchise. Appearing as primary characters, one-off encounters, mini-bosses, and even secondary protagonists, these rapscallions span the gamut from obscure to extremely popular. Who are some of your favorite pirates in the Zelda series? Of…

Maybe it’s because information on Breath of the Wild 2 has been scarce and an official release date hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s easy to forget that we haven’t had a total drought of Zelda content. With the Skyward Sword remake last year, the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity spinoff a year before that, and the Link’s Awakening remake before that, there’s been a somewhat steady and consistent stream of Zelda game releases. It’s been great! But in the early 2000’s,…

Like the hardware they’ve been released on, Zelda games have come in many shapes and sizes. It was typical over the years for smaller, more modest releases to adorn Nintendo’s handheld systems, while major “main event” titles would receive a console release. With time, this line has become blurred. Former 3D powerhouses Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask have both received significantly overhauled 3DS rereleases, and the advent of the Virtual Console has brought many 2D classics to home consoles like the Switch. With a few…
