Although this past year coming to an end is surely a cause for celebration, we must not forget that the year was not all bad. In fact, as we look upon 2020 with a retrospective view, there are likely things that came out of the time that were actually very good. One of those things is this fan-made album by musician Aaron Grubb, which includes twelve remixed Zelda songs in total. The album, entitled The Legend of Zelda Collection, Vol….

In an effort to analyze the evolution of the Zelda series, YouTube’s Chyde began a 15 part series of videos in April of 2019, each one highlighting a different single-player Zelda game. The videos extensively delve into the pitfalls and perfections of many different Zelda games, while still keeping in mind how both the age of a game within the video game industry and his current retrospective impressions play a significant role in his judgement. The series starts by looking…

It’s not everyday one has the privilege to cook for royalty, and even less often one cooks for fictional royalty. However, chef and YouTube personality Tone LoKe (a.k.a. Downward Thrust) placed the challenge upon himself as part of his Food Gaming Show — a series of coming up with classy restaurant dishes for icons of fiction to eat. For his third challenge in the series, he took on the Princess of Hyrule, Zelda. For his dish, Tone went with crispy…

The end of this year is rapidly approaching, which means that it’s time for my favorite annual tradition here at Zelda Dungeon: Best. Zelda. Ever! While no new Zelda games were released this year, we did have some DLC come out for Cadence of Hyrule and we’re looking forward to the upcoming release of a new Hyrule Warriors game: Age of Calamity! The prequel to Breath of the Wild just missed the cut for this year’s list, so you’ll have…

There are many ways to honor the Legend of Zelda series, but what’s better than boardsliding around a Zelda-inspired skate park? Prepare to shred with style in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 for PC with this fan recreation of Hyrule Temple from Super Smash Bros. Melee! Using Create-A-Park (a special game mode that allows the player to build their own skatepark using default pieces), Skramblez’ park allows you to pull off sick moves in an iconic landmark without the fear…

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link can usually be found pretty low on fans’ list of favorite Zelda games. This title suffers from unforgiving difficulty, and tedious sections of grinding, coupled with the fact that it doesn’t quite feel like a Zelda game. The game is by no means terrible, but even for someone like me who appreciates it, I have to admit it has rough patches. I’ve always felt like a remake could redeem this installment, but at the…

Hyrule Compendium hosts Mases and Gooey take on a tough call: What are the worst bosses in the series? Finding anything to complain about when it comes to Zelda’s stellar track record of boss characters is a tall order. Using Champions Cast #130 as a jumping off point, the duo take a sharp turn away from the top 10 discussion and try to dissect the missteps a number of Zelda games have made when it comes to clearing those inevitable…

At times, they appear as the most ominous and ruthless enemies in all of Hyrule, wielding an arsenal of ninja weapons and ancient fighting techniques; far too often, however, the Yiga Clan fall somewhere between ridiculous and a nuisance. Chasing banana bunches or delivering outlandish punchlines, these dark warriors first made their appearance in 2017’s mega-hit, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. For many, early experiences with the Yiga Clan build up expectations for a memorable enemy, only…

Developed by Geod Studio, 3dSen emulates classic and modern homebrew NES games and gives them a 3D perspective, allowing players to pay games from whole new angles in real time, with dynamic skyboxes. The emulator runs a multitude of classic NES games, including both…

Composers for Zelda games do a fantastic job of immersing the player in the moment. Whether it is large, choral tracks for big lore moments or softer melodic tracks for emotional and vulnerable moments, auditory cues are utilized to trigger the emotional response of the player. Thus, music offers a grander picture of the situation at hand and accompanies the visuals and gameplay to cement the idea of escaping into a fictional world. When it comes to combat music, Zelda…
