Welcome back to your bi-weekly dose of Zelda speedrunning news! This week, we’re having a gander at some of the glitches found in The Minish Cap, as well as chatting to a prominent Breath of the Wild runner. I’ve also got the latest on a brand new Majora’s Mask TAS competition. Intrigued? Read on…   Now Playing Earlier in November, Speedrun.com, a huge database for most games’ speedrunning information, was subject to a security breach. This saw some users’ accounts compromised, including those of moderators. As…

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…

Welcome back to your bi-weekly digest of all things Zelda speedrunning. Having stopped crying from the result of The Best Zelda Ever 2018 results, and having calmed down from the arguments which ensued in the staff chat, I’m just about ready to return to normal service. Just let me 100% Triforce Heroes one more time…   Now Playing A new type of speedrunning marathon is coming soon! Bingothon is a charity event, which will be hosted by speedrunslive and is raising money for the Doctors Without Borders….

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…

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…

Can the Zelda timeline actually be articulated? Since the timeline’s official release in the Hyrule Historia back in 2011, this is a hot question that has been pondered, sworn by and over, and debated by fans of the series until we turn blue in the face. And then, you know, when we finally think we somewhat have the grasp of it, Nintendo has to go and throw a couple wrenches into their own mess with the Encyclopedia and the revelation of Breath of the Wild’s…

The Zelda series has always knocked it out of the park with its games’ box art and external packaging. The talented artists of Nintendo have time and time again delivered an inviting and endearing glimpse at the adventure that awaits in each title, whether they present a striking mural / collage of characters and set pieces, or they represent the class and majesty of the Zelda brand through a gold-centric design. But we can’t have a debate if we all…

I like to think that I have some degree of self control, but every biannual Steam sale and every big Humble Bundle seems to be a huge temptation for the binge gamer that lives within me. When I see every game in a given series for sale at a reasonable price, I can barely stop myself from dumping the contents of my wallet right then and there. And I’m easily enticed by fancy series collections put out by big developers,…

Early Zelda games are no stranger to including Easter Eggs of other Nintendo series staples. From the Yoshi Doll to the picture of Princess Peach in Link’s Awakening, Malon’s brooch in the shape of Bowser’s head in Ocarina of Time, and the Chain Chomps in Four Swords Adventures (among many others), Nintendo has had a lot of fun including nods to its other popular franchises, and in some cases, including Easter Eggs that pay homage to the success of the Zelda series…

Back in 2011, Nintendo released the Hyrule Historia, detailing the events of Hyrule’s rise and decline through an official timeline. After the events of Ocarina of Time, the timeline split into three separate courses of history; a move which left Zelda fans with plenty of room to speculate and debate over whether the timeline really made sense. Also whether the split into three branches was more necessary than a split into two branches. More recently, Nintendo has released changes to the official timeline, as…
