A sense of dread. A sense of remorse and sadness. A sense of strength and a desire for vengeance for the havoc wrought on a land and people so loved. These are the feelings we get when we, the players, finally make our way to Hyrule Castle in Breath of the Wild, and this is in no short part due to the music we hear as we break the bounds of the gate. It’s time for that final battle. What…

What’s this?! The Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest is back again with another spooky season screenshot?! We’ve highlighted some the Zelda series’ most menacing creatures over the past few weeks, such as the frightening ReDead and the grotesque Oocca. But for this week’s Halloween-y contest, let’s take a look at a creature that, for all intents and purposes, was supposed to be scary, but ended up looking laughably goofy instead.   Last Week’s Contest: Oocoo gave us all nightmares last week….

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…

I know we all love The Legend of Zelda and many of the games that followed. It’s why we are here in the first place. But, I think it is safe to say that many of us have at least one that we just…didn’t like. It wasn’t our cup of tea, or there was some character or scene or mechanic that was an absolute game breaker for us. So my question today is, how would you change that game to make…

Nintendo had its fall Nintendo Direct on September 13th, giving fans a new look at the next mainline Zelda game, now titled Tears of the Kingdom. Despite this huge announcement, fans were also reminded that the never-ending The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess on Nintendo Switch rumors remain unconfirmed. These rumor refuses to die, and they seem to crop up whenever a Nintendo event might be happening soon. During these Nintendo rumor seasons, many video game websites create an obligatory…

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be here before we know it! Rumors have been flying for the last two years, along with wishes for what players hope to see in the new game. Breath of the Wild featured many over world mini-bosses, the Devine Beasts had an end “dungeon” boss, and then you finally face Calamity Ganon, but do you hope for more large scale bosses in Tears of the Kingdom? I really did like the…

There’s nothing like the soundtrack of a Zelda game to hurl you back into the memories of the gameplay experience. Whether you are the thrust back into the Lost Woods, thrown up into the skies surrounding Skyloft, or splashed into the Great Sea, every Zelda game is filled with music that perfectly accompanies the setting. ZeldaEastWest, a content creator on YouTube, has a plethora of re-orchestrated Zelda songs. I personally love the eeriness of their version of “Submerged Kingdom” from…

What do you get when you cross epic electric marimba playing and a whole host of effect pedals? Modded Marimba, of course! Modded Marimba, a.k.a. Andrew Dobos, combines a love of video games with a crazy cool art form to produce some truly enjoyable music covers. Modded Marimba is a big Zelda fan and it shows, with their Zelda cover collection including “Great Fairy’s Fountain,” “Midna’s Lament,” “Song of Storms,” and “Saria’s Song.” I personally love the attention to detail…

That’s right, Zelda fans! The Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest rides again! To celebrate spooky season, we’ve been highlighting screenshots from Majora’s Mask the past few weeks. But that Nintendo 64 classic doesn’t hold the monopoly on all things scary in the Zelda series; there are plenty of horrific moments from across Zelda‘s storied history. In fact, one particularly nasty horror made its debut in Twilight Princess: The  avian race known as the Oocca.   Last Week’s Contest: Link river-danced straight…

Musician Aaron Grubb released a new song in preparation for his upcoming album Legend of Zelda Music, Vol. 3. His latest track is “Departure,” which fans will recognize from the early game portion of Twilight Princess. Regarding his future plans and the work being done on this album, Grubb explains, “This is the first song to be released that will be included in Legend of Zelda Collection, Vol. 3—it will be more orchestral than the last two [albums], but will also include…
