Rare is the video game destined for legendary status, its appearance on the scene not just setting the stage for a series continuation but terraforming the landscape of the entire industry for decades to come. Games like Super Mario Bros., Metroid, heck, we’re still living in the wake of Resident Evil 4; the endless tide of third-person shoulder-shooters seemingly refusing to recede. Our beloved Zelda series contains a few of these foundational masterpieces, namely The Legend of Zelda, A Link…

Regardless of what you celebrate, we all remember that magical moment. Waking up to a day filled with joy, cheer, and a few mysterious presents, just waiting to be opened. For a lot of us, our first Zelda game was a beloved Christmas or holiday gift. A beautiful (sometimes gold) cartridge bundled up with love. But, does receiving a game as a holiday gift automatically make it the most nostalgic for this magical time of year? For a quick non-Zelda example, I…

Just in time for Christmas, Indie Developer Heart Machine is releasing a Special Edition physical version of Hyper Light Drifter on the Nintendo Switch! This unique Zelda-like game was already given a pretty awesome Collector’s Edition on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4; though there is a lot that this Switch version offers that makes it stand out so that it isn’t the same package as before. The game will be available in North America via Limited Run Games, but…

When Genshin Impact first started making the rounds on the Internet as the “Breath of the Wild clone,” I can’t say I was surprised or even mad. After all, Breath of the Wild was critically acclaimed when it came out in 2017. Why wouldn’t other game developers want to capitalize on its success by using the same formula? Genshin Impact does have many undeniable similarities to Breath of the Wild, but to its credit, the game does a great job of…

Get ready to do some barrel rolls, because today’s episode is all about the swan song for Rareware on Nintendo consolesL Star Fox Adventures! How did a Star Fox game end up with Ocarina of Time’s game engine? What did we think of the Arwing segments pasted in here? How does the world of Dinosaur Planet compare to Hyrule? What are the dungeons like? And for the love of God, what’s up with the voice acting!? All this, and just…

For a limited time this weekend, the Indie game TUNIC has a downloadable demo available on Steam and will be present on the Gamescom Indie Arena Booth that is currently underway. When I got whiff of this news via our managing editor Rod Lloyd, I downloaded the game as soon as it was available and dove into it – I’m happy to report I wasn’t disappointed. This demo isn’t really new; it’s the same demo that has been playable at E3…

In the midst of exploring Breath of the Wild‘s vast Gerudo Desert, have you ever thought it might be cool to have a Zelda-like game set in the deserts of ancient Egypt? When I was a kid, I didn’t think I’d ever want this experience, but I got it anyway, and I fell in love! I invite you all to walk like an Egyptian with me as I review of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy! This game was released in 2003 by…

I know, this is Zelda Dungeon, so why are we talking about a game series besides Zelda? Well, Okami is a darn good Zelda-like game, and is worth talking about on occasion! It seems like rumors of an Okami sequel are ever present, but nothing ever materializes from them. Yesterday, a story started to make the rounds that one member of the game’s original development team, Ikumi Nakamura, has plans to pitch an Okami sequel to Capcom. We can only…

Buckle in and grab your weapons, because this week, we go in our way back machine to reminisce about everyone’s favorite Hylian Hero making an unprecedented guest appearance in Namco’s 2003 fighting game, Soulcalibur II! How did this happen? How does Link play? What were his weapons like? And what was the climate of the console wars back then? All this and a ton more are up for discussion! But that’s not all! We have TWO live streams to announce…

Set in what appears to be a post-apocalyptic world, Toasty is an upcoming Zelda-like Action RPG “with some unique twists”. The game is being developed by Pocket Llama Studios, a team of all-stars with credentials of having formerly worked on Sonic Mania with Sega, Skullgirls by Lab Zero Games, and the Breath of the Wild-inspired The Legend’s Cookbook. The protagonist of Toasty is a Marshmallow Knight named Marshell. This unlikely Hero will embark on a quest “to stop an all-powerful evil…
