I like to consider myself a Disney enthusiast, and I’m happy to say that I’ve seen every animated classic that Disney has under its belt. Disney has many major franchises under its umbrella of influence, but the thing that puts Disney on top was its animation. Everyone knows the classics: Snow White, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, The Lion King, and the list goes on. Many of these classics we’ve watched since childhood, but there are a few of Disney’s animated…

A new decade may now be upon us, but we at Zelda Dungeon wanted to take one final look at the decade that was before we shut the door on it completely. The 2010’s can be seen as a rollercoaster ride for The Legend of Zelda, full of many euphoric highs and a few disappointing lows. But with all things said and done, it’s hard to look back at the past ten years and say that the series didn’t experience…

On January 1st, I completed my 100% playthrough of Okami HD; I started the new year off right, it seems. Last night, news dropped that First 4 Figures were accepting pre-orders for its newest Okami-themed resin statue! “Pre-orders for Okami – Amaterasu: Divine Descent resin statue EXCLUSIVE and DEFINITIVE Editions are only available until February 24, 2020.

Blossom Tales is getting a physical release! The retro-inspired title from FDG Games will receive a two-week limited run release starting on December 20th at 10 AM ET. Limited Run Games sent out the news via tweet and you can find the information on their blog. The game is currently unavailable for pre-order via their website, so fans will have to wait until launch day to order the game. The bundle includes the game, three sheets of removable stickers, and…

Developed by the now-defunct Clover Studios, Ōkami told the tale of the sun goddess Amaterasu venturing throughout a world of Japanese folklore, combating darkness using a celestial paintbrush. This Zelda-like title was such an amazing and adventurous treat that a lot of people were sad that the game never got a full, proper sequel (not counting the 2011 Nintendo DS title Ōkamiden). That’s why a lot of fans are more than thrilled right now that there may be something to…

It seems like since Breath of the Wild‘s release, many games that have come afterward were influenced by it. I remember thinking Mulaka looked a lot like Breath of the Wild. Some other games that drew my attention recently by looking similar to Breath of the Wild have been Decay of Logos, Gods and Monsters, and of course Genshin Impact. The latter game has been heavily compared to Breath of the Wild, to the point that it’s even being called…

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Gameplay for a new RPG titled Genshin Impact  — described as an anime version of the critically acclaimed Breath of the Wild — was debuted at the China Joy gaming expo this past weekend. The game, which is being developed by Mihoyo and was announced for the Playstation 4 at E3, is now being called out for allegedly copying major elements of Nintendo’s latest Zelda release.     Fans were quick to…

The first gameplay trailer has just dropped for the upcoming Zelda-like game Baldo. Developed by Italian studio NAPS Team (the folks behind the Gekido series), this gorgeous action adventure game began life as an unfinished Game Boy Advance title and has since been reworked in the Unity engine for a release on modern systems. With puzzle and combat features taken right out of Zelda and beautiful cel-shaded visuals inspired by Studio Ghibli films, the inspirations behind this game are ever…

If you are plugged in to the video game industry, you’ll hear many discussions about the technical aspects of gaming. Terms like frame rate and anti-aliasing are thrown around often, regardless of whether you have any idea of what they mean. And for the majority of my life, I didn’t have a clue about the technical aspects of gaming. Instead, I respond to specific elements within games: the feeling of beating a boss, the reward of getting a new item,…

The surprise announcement last month of the upcoming rhythm dungeon crawler Zelda spinoff Cadence of Hyrule is still something that I’m still fully wrapping my head around. It was almost like a floodgate moment — if we can get a Zelda crossover this out there, we can get anything! And if Nintendo is willing to let a small Canadian developer touch the Zelda IP, all of its different properties are probably on the table for any developer with a great…
