Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: Twilight Princess

Ganondorf. You know him. You’ve fought him. Constantly portrayed as the King of Thieves, the Dark Lord, so many monikers instilling fear, and you may have even come to love him as such. Trademarked by the Triforce of Power and that deep rumbling laugh that lets Link know he’s in for a fight of the ages, Ganondorf is one of the most iconic characters of the Zelda series. Yet he’s always been the enemy, and the one we know, in the end,…

Throughout the Zelda games, Link has had the opportunity to don outfits of different colors and and styles, allowing the player to enjoy the various benefits and in some instances, negative effects that can influence the hero’s adventures in Hyrule. There are armor sets, like the Magic Armor from Twilight Princess, which makes the wearer invulnerable while draining rupees from their wallet, and tunics from Ocarina of Time that provide heat resistance and the ability to breathe under water. There is mail from A…

As some of you might have heard, today marks the beginning of what can only be described as the biggest Zelda event of the year – the Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018. Packed to the brim with exciting content, nail biting races, and comically failed glitches and exploits, you do not want to miss it. While the team involved with the event might brush it off as a bit of fun (and an excellent way to raise money for charity), an underlying tension…

Welcome to Cave of Trials! This week we have a special challenge in honor of our Zelda Dungeon Marathon. This year’s Marathon will support Extra Life! So come check us out on Twitch and keep up to date with #ZDMarathon on Twitter and Facebook! One of our runners, Locke, will be attempting a world record run of Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland. In his honor, we are giving our pal Tingle a shot at the Cave of Trials Championship! Zelda may be a tough customer, but if you want…

The Legend of Zelda has gone through many different art styles in the past 30 years. From pixelated to state of the art HD cell shading, Link has pretty much been through it all. Now, some fans love the charming bright colours of The Wind Waker, others, the gritty landscape of Twilight Princess, and some prefer Skyward Sword, a combination of the two. Now the question for Nintendo is “Where do we go next?” I only recently found The Legend of Zelda manga, with the release of the…

The Legend of Zelda boasts some of the most iconic and infectious gaming tunes, from the melancholy of Lon Lon Ranch to the grandeur of Twilight Princess’ Hyrule Field theme. Since the inclusion of the My Music feature in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the seminal fighting game series has tried to feature as many of these memorable melodies as possible. In some cases, the maestros at Nintendo have even put together new arrangements of familiar tracks. Smash. Brawl’s Ocarina of Time medley…

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 discuss Twilight Princess, Phantom Hourglass, Link’s Awakening, and The Wind Waker. What do you think of our list? How would you have ranked these games? Stay tuned because over…

The annual Zelda Dungeon Marathon fast approaches as our staff prepare themselves for the week long charity event. From last minute game running practice to hastily packing our bags three and a half minutes before the taxi leaves us at home, we’re excited to raise money for Extra Life! If you haven’t watched one of these before, every year a large group of Zelda Dungeon staffers led by our intrepid Mases race each other in all of the main title Zelda…

Welcome to Cave of Trials! The moment has finally come for our Twilight Champion. Rusl defeated all of the competition and has earned a shot against our current Cave of Trials Champion, Princess Zelda. This will prove to be a difficult task for Rusl. Last week Zelda defeated both Ganondorf and Zant, and champions the whole Legend of Zelda series after having defeated Amaterasu to earn the championship. Can the underdog overcome royalty? Thank you for voting in this week’s poll! Next…

Breath of the Wild has no shortage of places to explore, each with their own nooks and crannies, art and inspiration, giving the kingdom of Hyrule the impression of being a vast, ever-thriving land, despite the challenges of history. But where did they all come from? When were they all built? Zelda theorist Macintyre has taken to the Zelda timeline, connecting points in history with notable locations on Breath of the Wild‘s map. He begins with prehistoric times — that is, the…
