There are three inevitabilities in life: death, taxes, and that there will always be a Nintendo Direct in February. That has once again proven true as Nintendo has announced a Direct for tomorrow, February 8th. With that of course comes a brand new round of speculation of what lovely morsels of gaming news we’ll be privy to by this time tomorrow. A couple notable games linger on the horizon: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe, Pikmin 4, and of course…

Hey there, Zelda fans! The Zelda Dungeon Caption Contest is back again for a very special occasion. This week marks our 365th contest! Yes, after eight years of running this dang thing, we’ve now racked up one contest for every day of the calendar year. That’s absolutely insane! So, to commemorate this important day, let’s feature a screenshot from the modern classic Breath of the Wild.   Last Week’s Contest: Link had some deep thoughts last week. Here are our…

Recently, where I’m employed I’ve been taking every few Friday’s to ask my team’s “Hot Take.” If you’re not sure what a “Hot Take” is it’s a new way saying for your really strong opinion. (Maybe it’s not so new and my age is showing here, but I digress.) Personally I’ve had a lot of fun doing these with my team, and I thought it would be fun to put a Zelda spin on the question and pose it to…

Open world games have come a long way in the last few years, and with Tears of the Kingdom approaching, the Cast figured it was a good time to play some contemporary titles to see what the upcoming Zelda game might learn from those titles. Joined by Rod Lloyd for this episode, the gang discuss Elden Ring and Horizon Zero Dawn and lay out what they like about those games, what they dislike, and what they would like to see…

One of the definite strengths of the Zelda series is its music.  From sweeping, epic songs to inspire the heart of a hero to quiet, to contemplative pieces meant to reflect the beauty of a particular area, the music has meant a lot to everyone who has enjoyed the games. What about re-mixes and re-arrangements, though?  My first run-in with the concept of re-arrangements came from two soundtracks from Ocarina of Time, each released in 1998.  The first was the The Legend…

Everything seems to be quite quiet on the Tears of the Kingdom news pipeline, but not for long I hope. Over the last few years Nintendo has hosted a Nintendo Direct in the month of February, and fans have come to anticipate and expect it. Now that some of Nintendo’s more recent launches have had their time to shine all eyes are on Tears of the Kingdom. So, with the hope of a Nintendo Direct in our future do you…

The life of the code monkey is one of little rest. There is something about holding the key to the software we so rely upon everyday that just makes it so you can’t leave it well alone. Such has been the way with the recent trend of unofficial PC ports of classic games, old titles recreated from the ground up in common coding languages like C++. Zelda Dungeon reported on just such a PC port of A Link to the…

If you’re reading this article right now, you’re probably a fan of the Legend of Zelda series, we know that. Some of us, maybe more die-hard fans, revisit our favorite titles in the series from time to time. With that, we already know what to expect from each title and manage to choose the one that will most likely soothe our nostalgia for the series at that moment. For example: if I feel like having the experience of a more…

||  Part Sixty-Eight  ||  Part Seventy  || Part Sixty-Nine “What are you?” Osmond asked. The glowing eyes narrowed as he raised his hand over his head. He snapped his fingers and a massive broadsword that Osmond would have needed two hands to wield, appeared in his hand. He swung it around over his head and pointed its flat head down at Osmond. In the blink of an eye, he was charging downward at Osmond. Osmond, reacting just in time, raised…

In every Legend of Zelda game released so far, Princess Zelda has always been… well… a princess. On rare occasions we have seen her either disguise herself as a different character (Sheik in Ocarina of Time) or be entirely unaware of her royal bloodline and true name (Tetra in The Wind Waker). But in both cases, she ultimately returns to her full standing as the Princess of Hyrule. In the latest installment of the series (as of the date of…
