Taylor is out sick this week, so we had to push back our Wind Waker spectacle, but never fear! In his place is some Zelda Dungeon royalty: Copy Editing Legend Alasyn Eletha and the big cheese himself, Mases Hagopian! This week, the crew embrace the user generate Daily Debates to answer some pretty heavy hitting questions: Which Zelda game has the best ending? Do the graphical styles influence our initial opinions? Which game is the hardest? Could we ever see…

Now that Zelda II is available for Nintendo Switch’s online service, it had us wondering if Nintendo would ever give it a “Life of Luxury” revamp much like they gave the original. Do you think this could happen? What changes could they make if so? Let us know in the comments! Check out more of our discussion videos in the Hyrule Compendium. Also feel free to check out the other videos on our Youtube channel and subscribe! For more of our thoughts, check…

The Nintendo Entertainment Systsem – Nintendo Switch Online service has been updating regularly, and their next update is coming January 16th. The titles arriving at that time will be  Blaster Master and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Both games are their original versions, ported over to the Online Service. It’s good to see that Nintendo is keeping the NES Online roster robust and that it’s expanding at a decent pace. Zelda II isn’t my favorite Zelda game, but it…

What do you get when Andy, Kat, Gooey, and Kevin walk into a bar? Nobody knows for sure, but if I had to bet, it would sound something like The Champions’ Cast Episode 35! Taylor is away this week, so Andy recruited some of Zelda Dungeon’s finest to bring you the hardest hitting Zelda and Super Smash Bros. questions! What’s the deal with how Nintendo defines echo fighters? Who’s the “best Zelda girl”? Which character has no shot of making…

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is the black sheep of the Zelda franchise. An action side-scroller with role playing elements, the game was vastly different from its predecessor. The Temple theme is one of the notable elements of Zelda II to have a life beyond the 1989 game, becoming a huge part of the Smash Bros. series, used as the music for the spacious Temple stage from Super Smash Bros. Melee. This synth version of the Temple Theme by Ace Waters…

The Legend of Zelda hasn’t traditionally been known as a game series defined by its difficulty. While a few titles jump out as being notably harder than others, based whether on a game’s release date or on the inclusion of Hero / Master Modes, most Zelda games are designed in such a way as to avoid punishing difficulty spikes. But that hasn’t stopped a few specific titles from kicking players into the dirt with their off-the-charts hardness. In this debate,…

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…

Welcome back to the latest edition of Zelda Runners! This week, we’re talking Games Done Quick, even more Breath of the Wild (when will we stop breaking this poor game?) and, in Glitch Exhibition, we’re taking a look at the enemy mechanics in the beloved Zelda II: Adventure of Link. Of course, there’s more to the article than I can fit in the introduction (otherwise it wouldn’t be an introduction), so without further ado, let’s take a look at the…

The Zelda games have been one of the most far-reaching series in recent history. Ask almost any video game player if they’ve heard of the Legend of Zelda in some form or another and the answer will most likely be a resounding, “YES!” But all involvement must begin somewhere. I was lucky enough to be introduced to it very early on in my life through my babysitter and brother when I was around four years old via Legend of Zelda, Adventure of Link, and Link’s…

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…
