Get your headphones in, because this week, we’re taking a musical journey throughout the history of the Zelda series to rank and discuss every games main theme! We go back and find what works, what doesn’t, which games were short-changed, and which themes we would consider the best of all time. We’re playing every theme in the series, so sit back and groove out to the amazing music of the series. Don’t forget to let us know which main theme…

Another spin around the sun has come and went, and with it, the latest installment of Zelda Dungeon’s proudest yearly tradition: Best. Zelda. Ever! 2022 marked the first year in quite some time where we had no real Zelda activity. No new games were released, no new projects were announced, it was… quiet. Although we got a title for the long-awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild, 2022 seemed like a year that could best be described as the calm…

Happy Monday Zelda Cast fam! We’ve got a doozy of a show this week, as we go nearly ninety minutes discussing collectathon items and assigning them a grade! Everything from Secret Seashells to Golden Skulltullas to Ship Parts to Tri Force Heroes Outfits to, of course, Koroks are on the table, and we’re getting digging in deep to find out what makes a good collectathon. Does multiple rewards make it more rewarding? How does the story of the quest factor…

Zelda Dungeon is back with a new entry in the “Definitive Ranking” series! Hosts Mases and Gooey take a deep dive into one of the most divisive games in the Zelda series: Tri Force Heroes! The 2015 multiplayer spinoff, developed by Nintendo and Grezzo, uses the same engine and art style as A Link Between Worlds. Tri Force Heroes also uses the same Energy Gauge that the 2013 game used. The spinoff is set in the Kingdom of Hytopia, which…

In the early days of the Zelda franchise, the wardrobe choices for Link were limited. Nevertheless, as a kid in the 80s and 90s, I loved tracking down the Red and Blue Rings in The Legend of Zelda and seeing Link transform his appearance. Finding the Blue and Red Mail in A Link to the Past was a highlight every run and really gave me the sense that Link was becoming more powerful. When I wasn’t sitting in front of the TV, I…

Ganon and Ganondorf cast a long shadow over the Zelda series. The Great King of Evil (and his various incarnations) have been the villain in a large amount of games, which means the player often end their experience in Hyrule by battling Ganon. With that being said, it is always interesting when a game features a final boss that is not Ganon. Whether it is Link’s Shadow, Majora, or Vaati, the non-Ganon villains help keep the gameplay and storytelling from…

It has been a long few years since we last had a multiplayer Zelda game. As we continue to await the anticipated release of a certain “sequel” game, many including myself have looked back at previous releases and wondered about the legacy of multiplayer installments for the Zelda franchise. The previous multiplayer entry Triforce Heroes was released in 2015, and was actually the eighteenth original entry in the Zelda franchise. Breath of the Wild was the nineteenth entry released two…

If you’ve listened to the Champions’ Cast even a little, you probably know that The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is Andy’s least favorite Zelda game, so this week, we asked YOU to send us questions about the 3DS title for us to unpack. In addition to explaining why Andy thinks Tri Force Heroes is a bad Zelda game, the gang answer questions like what did they think of the totem mechanic, what their favorite outfit from the game…

A good or bad gimmick can elevate or detract from a game, and the Zelda series is unique in that every single game has a distinct, unique gimmick associated with it that makes them ripe for examination! This week, we’re diving in and discussing what’s worked and what needed improvement over the years with Zelda gimmicks; Dual worlds are a favorite staple, but maybe stylus or motion controls weren’t for everybody. Transforming via masks was likewise awesome, so why did…

With such a stellar pedigree, the Zelda series has long since earned the benefit of the doubt from many gamers. That said, if our annual Best Zelda Ever list is any indication, then we each have distinct tastes. Certain entries just speak to us more strongly than others. Of course, that becomes evident only after we’ve actually played the game ourselves. You know what they say about  judging a book by its cover — even if the game’s initial reveal…
