Those sparkly, shimmering Heart Pieces are a funny bunch; sometimes so close and yet so far. One might be in plain sight, but until you pick up that specific piece of equipment it will continue to elude you. I confess to getting quite gleeful when I can finally backtrack to pick up a Heart Piece. There is nothing like that triumphant sound when you fill a Heart Container either. I missed having them in Breath of the Wild, Spirit Orbs…

Dungeons have always played a major part of every Zelda game. Dungeons can range from the ever-so-simple, to the mind-boggling, rage-quitting disaster. A lot of traditional dungeons in Zelda games have been patterned after a theme, most themes being elemental in nature. So for today’s Daily Debate I’d like to ask, what is your favorite dungeon theme? My favorite theme would be a forest theme. Some of my favorite dungeons include Forbidden Woods and The Wind Temple from The Wind…

Buckle in for one of our longest episodes ever as the gang take YOUR questions on and about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess! Would we like to see Midna return?

It’s a new year, and a new challenge awaits Mases and Gooey in another installment of Twilight Princess Zelda Warfare. After another roll at Rollgoal last episode, this chilly January sets them in the equally chilly Peak Province region for a much more traditional challenge: who can get to Snowpeak Ruins first?

Ilia occupies a strange place in Twilight Princess‘ narrative. In the first few hours of the game, Ilia seems to be an important part of the community within Ordon Village, and she seems to have a special connection with Link. Unfortunately, as the game enters its second half, Ilia’s role in the story is greatly reduced. By the time the writers and designers of Twilight Princess bring her story to a close, many players have already moved on from the…

It’s finally over. After what seemed like several years worth of time in the last 365 days, we’re finally leaving the year 2020 behind us — a year that began with such promise and potential, but didn’t turn out the way anyone expected. As well as offering a big congratulations to everyone for simply making it through the year, we wanted to celebrate with one of our favorite annual traditions here at Zelda Dungeon: laying bare our hopes and dreams…

Although this past year coming to an end is surely a cause for celebration, we must not forget that the year was not all bad. In fact, as we look upon 2020 with a retrospective view, there are likely things that came out of the time that were actually very good. One of those things is this fan-made album by musician Aaron Grubb, which includes twelve remixed Zelda songs in total. The album, entitled The Legend of Zelda Collection, Vol….

The innovative designer has been a part of Nintendo since 1977 and in the past four decades he has helped create iconic games like Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda.

Princess Zelda, heir to the throne of Hyrule and keeper of the Triforce of Wisdom (typically). The namesake of our favorite series has made some important decisions for her kingdom, each with its own consequences, and it could be argued that some choices were smarter than others. It makes me wonder, which incarnation of Princess Zelda was the wisest? Let’s look at Princess Zelda from Ocarina of Time. This incarnation made one of the most impactful decisions ever by splitting…
