It is the iconic relic of the Zelda series, from the very beginning symbolizing the balance of courage, wisdom, and power. Although shown intact in games such as Skyward Sword and The Wind Waker, the Triforce is commonly split among three people, each of them a paragon of one particular trait. Ocarina of Time, in particular, explained the splitting of the Triforce as a result of Ganondorf being able to access it in the Sacred Realm. Because he touched it with his…

The first ten dungeons of our Top 50 dungeons are down below! Make sure to check back next week when 10 more are revealed! Let’s get started!   50. Tower of Hera A Link Between Worlds The Tower of Hera in A Link Between Worlds is where the dungeons of the game really start to get good.

What is the greatest dungeon in the Zelda series? A simple question on the surface, but one with so many layers that it makes finding an answer almost impossible. How does one define ‘great’? Is it the dungeon layout? Perhaps the ways the dungeon item is implemented into the puzzles? Or is it the bombastic boss fight at the end? Surely the music and overall aesthetic play a part? And to be honest – what does being a dungeon in…

Being a big-time fan, commercials are never the first place I hear about a new Zelda game, but they can certainly hype me up as one gets close to launch. Whether or not they’ve convinced fans to pick up a new game, the Zelda series has quite a few iconic television ads. From heartwarming, to bizarre, creative, and catchy, we have a fantastic selection of commercials to choose from — but which one is the best? Get ready to open…

Realism in games can work as a sort of double-edged sword. On one hand, experiencing a game that focuses on realistic characters and environments can give you a feeling of immersion. On the other hand, when a game becomes steeped in realism, anything out of the ordinary can seem jarring. Things like magic and monsters need a great deal of explanation and backstory. The supernatural, by definition, is out of the ordinary, and would need some kind of tangible defense….

Where does Spirit Tracks rank among your favorite Legend of Zelda titles? Back in November it was ranked near the bottom of our Best Zelda Ever listing. However, this is not a universal opinion, as many fans praise the title for its storyline, great musical score, and its overall improvement over its predecessor. In this months episode, Gooey and I give our definitive ranking of Spirit Tracks. Just as in previous months, we also post the results of both our…

One of the most prominent moments in Zelda games is stepping out into the overworld for the first time. The tutorial is at its end and the player has been ushered into the great adventure that lies before them. And, ever since the beginning of the legend in 1986, the music of the Zelda series has been pivotal to that experience. Each overworld theme provides an immersive melody tailored to the tone and story of the game. The themes are…

Highlights of the Zelda series, such as Ocarina of Time or Breath of the Wild, stand as staples of the franchise. As a result, however, they tend to outshine other gems, as other games are pushed to the “back burner” and regarded with less value. Whether judging based on nostalgia, quality, accessibility, or attention in the media, some Zelda games tend to fall through the cracks. I would say that Spirit Tracks or The Minish Cap never quite get the…

Since the teaser for the sequel to Breath of the Wild was released at E3 2019, fans have anticipated the possibility of Princess Zelda being a playable character. With her short-cut hair, the fandom is excited to see the princess take on a more active role, especially considering that she is on an adventure with Link himself. If fan speculation is correct, and Zelda is a playable character in Breath of the Wild 2, it would not be the first…

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…
