Spirit Tracks is Zelda‘s second foray into the world of the Nintendo DS, with Phantom Hourglass being the first. Despite what has been said about “Link’s Great Train Adventure”, the game is still considered by many to be a fun experience overall. But what kind of secrets are yet to be discovered about this DS title? I guess it’s time to take a much deeper dive into what makes the train in Spirit Tracks chug along. A little over a month ago, the…

It’s that time of year again, for family, friends, celebration, and really questionable choices of sweaters. The lights are hung, the candles are lit, the end of the year is upon us, and no matter which holiday you celebrate or why, this is a season for cheer and good times. You have decided to host a party for all your favorite characters in The Legend of Zelda. So, who all do you invite? Let’s face it, each of the characters would…

The Legend of Zelda has my favorite end credits sequences in video games and movies. Unlike most movies where I walk out a minute or two after the film is over, I always watch staff rolls in Zelda games right to the very end. Usually, these game’s credits/staff rolls include a new musical composition (or a combination of multiple themes arranged especially for the occasion) and the video/visual sequence take you on a trip through the different locations you have traveled…

As Zelda grows and changes, aspects that seemed crucial slowly slip away, shift or change. Magic for example was once a big deal, but one aspect that seemed quintessentially Zelda was that of mystic melodies played on hallowed instruments. An ocarina, a conductor’s baton, even pan pipes and a few harps, divine musical instruments were once the bread and butter of a Zelda title. Players even went so far as to collect eight different kinds to wake up the Windfish…

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…

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…

With the release of Breath of the Wild, there are now seemingly endless treasures in The Legend of Zelda series. These items are most often used for upgrading some aspect of Link’s equipment, but lots of them also just look really frickin’ cool! From their first appearance in Phantom Hourglass to the aforementioned Breath of the Wild, the many treasures have been begging to be made into real life trinkets. Most of my favorite treasures come from Skyward Sword. A miniature Golden Skull would look nice…

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…
