Over the many years Zelda has been a franchise, the main hero himself has gone through almost as many changes! Though he’s always had generally the same discernible features, Link sometimes has wild variations in how he both appears and engages with the world around him. As a 2D sprite, he didn’t always have that much detail, but he was just as capable of defeating Ganon as the Hero of Twilight after him! Breath of the Wild not only gave us a…

There are tons and tons of shops throughout The Legend of Zelda franchise, spanning a multitude of games and worlds. Each one has it’s own unique design and shopkeeper. These strains each provide Link with specific services. Some shops are easy to find, while others are hidden in difficult spots. Most of them though hold something useful for Link to buy and take on his journey. But which one is actually the most useful? This doesn’t include ones that are integral to…

I’m not one to bring up my personal life in my work for Zelda Dungeon, but with this week being the Week of Love, I felt compelled to lift the curtain a bit on what goes on IRL. Last year, something pretty big happened for me: I got married! And as much as I love my new wife with all my heart, I must admit that she is very much not a gamer. She had only held a controller a…

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…
