I’m about to give everyone my hot take, and I know that there are many that will disagree with me in an instant. I expect that. We do not need another port of Twilight Princess or The Wind Waker, we need a new Zelda game. We need Tears of the Kingdom. Tears of the Kingdom was recently announced with a release date of May 12th, 2023. (About time!) Though I’m getting tired of hearing about rumors and ports. Now that we…

It’s every fan’s dream for their favorite characters to spring to 3D life straight from the page or screen. For Patryk Papercrafter, a.k.a. Patryk Groszkowski, however, such beloved characters really do take physical shape, emerging from a combination of paper, ink, and a love of crafting. From Wałbrzych, Poland, Groszkowski has been making papercrafts for five years, with his personal collection of papercrafts numbering around 1,100 pieces. At exhibitions, the papercrafter’s display tables are filled with figures spanning across multiple…

Warning: Spoilers for The Dragon Prince Seasons 1 through 3 One of my favorite things about streaming services like Netflix that these services give me the opportunity to explore content that I otherwise might not watch. As a child, I grew up with a limited amount of television channels, and I missed a lot of great animated shows because of it. Netflix was the service where I was first introduced to some of my favorite animated series like Avatar: The…

I personally have been wanting to put together a Zelda cosplay for a very long time. I have always felt like I did not have the time or talent to put something so elaborate together, but recently I had a change of heart (and my husband bought a 3D printer.) I know that there are a lot of Zelda cosplayers in the community so whether you’re a seasoned cosplayer or someone with a dream, what Zelda character would you like…

What is happening, Zelda fans?! What say you to another sizzling edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? I have just made it back to the comfort of my air-conditioned home after spending several hours in the blazing Southern California heat. It was the hottest day of the summer so far, for goodness’ sake! So, in an effort to turn down the temperature, this week’s contest will feature Link’s go-to freezing apparatus, the Ice Rod!   Last Week’s Contest: Link harvested…

I love well executed video game cutscenes. While I understand that the core Zelda experience has to be built on solid gameplay and well-developed mechanics, cutscenes are extra flourishes that help develop a game’s story and give the player thrilling dramatic moments to enjoy. I started playing video games with Ocarina of Time, and my jaw dropped when I saw the epic cutscene where Link deals the final blow to Ganon; that moment completely blew my mind as a child…

The map of Hyrule has changed a lot over the years and it’s ever evolving as the series progresses into new generations. There are a few iconic elements of Hyrule that have remained consistent across multiple games. Hyrule Castle, Castle Town, The Temple of Time, Death Mountain and Zora’s Domain are a few that come to mind immediately, but what about the locations that have only appeared in one game? Today I want to know, what is your favorite location…

When developing the original Legend of Zelda game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, series creator Shigeru Miyamoto reportedly found inspiration in his childhood memories of exploring fields, forests, and caves in and around Kyoto, Japan. The child-like wonderment of exploration that such memories represent has continued to inform every other game in the Zelda series, and its universal message has connected with generations of fans all over the world. No member of the Zelda Dungeon staff can claim to have…

Before Breath of the Wild, robots in Zelda were far and few between. We basically just had the Ancient Robots from Skyward Sword— including Scrapper, Skipper, and pirate minibosses LD-002G Scervo and LD-003D Dreadfuse. Now we have a whole slew of additional robots with the Guardians– and seemingly more on the way given the most recent Breath of the Wild 2 trailer. But are they a bad addition to the series? Have robots in Zelda games ever been anything other…

The more I think about this darn game that keeps slipping through my fingers, the more I think about how marvelous it would be for a past incarnation of Link or Zelda to make a cameo appearance in Breath of the Wild 2. Because Breath of the Wild is likely the most recent time in Hyrule according to the timeline, wouldn’t it be intriguing if some of our past favorite heroes and princesses appeared? Our current incarnations could use their help to…
