Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

The release of The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia has provided a comprehensive collection of items, enemies, characters and languages for fans to immerse themselves in and while doing so, they can expand upon the lore that is touched upon in Hyrule Historia.  One part of the Encyclopedia focuses heavily on Historical Records, more specifically on Geography and Nature. In fact, if you look at page 61, you would find a section that details ‘Towns Named For Sages’. As some fans know, most towns in The Adventure…

Over the course of this four part series, Mases and Gooey will discuss and rank all of the single player games in the main Legend of Zelda series. Each episode we will pick four games at random and we must come to an agreement on where it will be placed on our list! In this episode we start off with Spirit Tracks, Zelda II, Oracle of Ages, and Oracle of Seasons. What do you think of our list? How would…

The Legend of Zelda series has varied in difficulty across the years, whether it be challenging puzzles, a massive overworld, or tough combat, there is one Zelda game that stands above the others as the most difficult in the series: The Adventure of Link. This game puts all of the player’s gaming prowess to the test in its fast paced action and palaces crawling with monsters. For a game that aimed to put an emphasis on combat, Nintendo certainly stepped up to the challenge. So, what would…

Here at Zelda Dungeon, we have all sorts of tips, trick, bestiaries, item lists and comprehensive walkthroughs. Believe it or not, there used to be a time when things like the internet did not exist. Everything a person learned about a Zelda game all came through either word of mouth, the Nintendo Power magazine, or from buying a player’s guide. Now imagine you lived in this time, had no friends who liked Zelda as much as you, and you couldn’t afford a guide book. Which Zelda game,…

This week, Zelda Runners is a ZeldaSpeedRuns Marathon 2018 extravaganza.   Now Playing Unlike other major speedrunning marathons, ZSRM18 is entirely held online,…

Welcome Zelda Dungeon faithful to the Best Zelda Music Ever List! You might recall a few months ago, we gathered the writing staff here at Zelda Dungeon and tasked them with ranking the Zelda games, in order of their favorite to least favorite. Well, to give Music Week the grand send off that it deserves, we’ve taken that idea and pushed it to the next level. This time, not only the writing staff, but every member of the Zelda Dungeon team,…

Hey there, Zelda fans! With Music Week reaching its conclusion, so too does the first round of our best soundtrack tournament. We’ve had some landslides and we’ve had some competitive polls as well, so let’s break down the tournament so far and get us ready for the next round. The tournament kicked off with the obligatory Zelda side game poll. As I said in that post, the bracket necessitated 20 participants, and I figured that this necessity provided a golden…

Our best soundtrack tournament continues with two new titles. As A Link Between Worlds and Spirit Tracks duke it out in yesterday’s poll, The Adventure of Link and Oracle of Ages step into the fray. The Adventure of Link Vs. Oracle of Seasons To this day, The Adventure of Link stands as one of the strangest and most divisive Zelda games, bucking many of the trends established by its predecessor. Even the title’s music deviated from the Koji Kondo compositions…

Princess Zelda has come a long way from where she started in the original The Legend of Zelda. Eventually breaking out of the stereotypical damsel in distress persona, Zelda has proven countless times that it’s not only up to Link anymore to defeat Ganon. It now takes even more of her own skill and know-how to vanquish evil. There are some things that you may not have known about the Princess of Hyrule though, as this list featuring ten interesting…
