I have always loved Zelda games for having distinct overworld themes that are instantly recognizable and somehow fitting each game perfectly. Although A Link to the Past and Spirit Tracks are among my favorites, Twilight Princess’ overworld theme harnesses a certain daring and reckless adventurous spirit that hurls a player forward. Content creator Vector U has captured this wonderfully in their remix of the song. The remix features all the different moving parts of the dynamic theme, even adding “Midna’s Lament” at the…

I can’t believe it’s that time already, but here we are: it’s time for Zelda Dungeon’s 2019 Edition of the Best. Zelda. Ever! Two Zelda games were released this year — one a remake, and one a spinoff — but maybe most crucially, the next mainline installment of the series was teased at E3 when Nintendo revealed the sequel to Breath of the Wild was to be released! Exciting times are ahead for Zelda fans no doubt, but let’s focus…

Few titles in the Zelda franchise have garnered more controversy and criticism than Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks — the notorious touch-controlled games for the Nintendo DS. When comparing these two games, fans often find stark contrast between the over-worlds and dungeons. Some players believe Phantom Hourglass has a better over-world, and some fans believe that Spirit Tracks has better dungeons. Both over-worlds are constrained to the movements of either boat or train, so opinions may come down to freedom of maneuverability and entertainment…

Spirit Tracks is a game with a complicated legacy. Some fans absolutely love the game while others believe it is a lesser Zelda experience. It seems like the only thing that most fans agree on is that the game’s music is incredible. From the opening title screen to the end credits, the game has a variety of thrilling and beautiful melodies. While Spirit Tracks has many great songs, the “Realm Overworld” theme is by far the most iconic song from…

With the Nintendo Switch, gamers can enjoy their favorite games almost anywhere. Take the young adult we’re following in this new “Sights & Sounds” trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, for instance, as he takes out his Switch to enjoy some Smash Bros. on the train. As he uses this opportunity to kill some time and get some licks in, the young man ironically starts a match on the Spirit Train stage — inspired by Spirit Tracks — while sitting on said…

Some of the more unique objects you encounter in the Zelda series are the Gossip Stones. In a regular encounter with one, striking a Stone causes it to bounce around and tell you the time while using a bomb on it launches it upward. However, when you get a chance to talk to a Gossip Stone while wearing the Mask of Truth in Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Link can hear them truly speak. Theorist MaskedNintendoBandit recently released an intriguing…

Welcome to October. The month of cool air, hot drinks, and that perpetual feeling that something is watching you. That’s right, it’s time for all of those haunted feelings, and what better way to give yourself the thrill of a scare than by exploring the most haunted, cursed, and downright creepy spots in Zelda games? What triggers fear can vary widely and is deeply personal. What creeps out one player may not even phase another. The Kakariko Village Graveyard, with…

When one typically thinks of the Zelda franchise, they probably think of the first game in the series that they played, their overall favorite Zelda game, or one of the immensely-popular 3D titles. Unfortunately, several solid games are often overlooked. Perhaps the most neglected ones are the Oracle games, Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, and the DS titles, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. But which set of games is more underrated? Both sets seem to be among the least-played Zelda games for some reason,…

From exploring the unique location of Koholint Island to collecting multiple musical instruments to wake up the Wind Fish, Link’s Awakening features a lot of unique ideas that are exclusive to the game. I adore Link’s Awakening for its many unique and exclusive features, including the quaint Animal Village. Home to a variety of small critters and anthropomorphic animals that assist Link throughout his quest, Animal Village is unlike any other village in the Zelda games, and has never reappeared…
