What’s up, Zelda fans?! Who’s ready for another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? We’ve been highlighting a lot of moments from Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity since the game released last year, but one key character hasn’t really gotten his due in the contest quite yet. That character is the Prophet of Doom Astor, one of Age of Calamity‘s biggest baddies, and this week’s contest will be all about him! Last Week’s Contest: A Korok tested fate last…

I’m not gonna lie. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks (which I’ll henceforth refer to as “the DS Zelda’s”) are my two least favorite Zelda games. There are a bunch of different reasons why, but the main one for me is the controls. I just don’t like the stylus movement system and holding my big 3DS XL with one hand while using the other hand to draw a path for Link to move gives me cramps. Another…

Mases and Gooey are back at it again; this latest episode of Zelda Warfare features the Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The pair have been making their way through the game, completing various dungeons and mini-game challenges. Gooey currently leads the competition with 11 wins to Mases’ 7. For this competition, the rules of engagement are simple: players may only use the hidden skills for combat, along with the Lamp, Hookshot, Spinner, Slingshot, and Dominion Rod. While…

As part of the celebrations for the Super Mario Bros. 35th anniversary, Animal Crossing: New Horizons received an update which allowed players to purchase some really cool Super Mario-themed furniture and items.  Players raced to the Special Goods section of their Nook Shopping to get their hands on Fire Flowers, Floating Blocks, Goal Poles and more.  With such an awesome way of celebrating the franchises big occasion, it seemed natural to assume that The Legend of Zelda would be next…

This week for the show, we do what we always do when there’s nothing particularly pressing to talk about: steal the great ideas of our Zelda Dungeon writing team and answer some of their Daily Debates! Tune in and hear our two cents on topics like: is Breath of the Wild 2 losing anticipation? Which Zelda game offers the most replay value? Should the series introduce post game content? Would we name a kid after a Zelda character? Which game…

Until Breath of the Wild came along with its open world and focus on emergent narrative, Zelda side quests came in basically two flavors: little side stories that would reward Link with a piece of heart, and minigames that would reward Link with… a piece of heart. Sure, there were other prize bundles here and there, but 25% of any meaty distraction came with the whiff of a new Heart Container. That’s no knock; I see Zelda‘s relatively low number…

The Wind Waker is one of the most beloved games in the Zelda series. The stirring music, gorgeous art style, and timeless story have been lauded by fans and critics across the world. However, despite the game’s immense popularity, The Wind Waker has never received a true successor. While Phantom Hourglass directly continued the story of Link and Tetra, the technological limits of the DS resulted in a game that was quite different from its forebearer. For one, the sailing,…

The Magic Meter is a recurring element in the Zelda series, granting Link special abilities that made gameplay feel so much more exciting.  It made its first rather basic appearance in The Adventure of Link but became more of a staple in later 3D games, with its final appearance in The Wind Waker.  I’ve often wondered why the Magic Meter wasn’t carried over to Twilight Princess, especially because it seemed like such a natural part of the series during the…

||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || “Are you feeling okay, Mr?” Nabooru shook me hard. My wrists gave a twinge as I prised my aching fingers off the penny whistle. The air was still now, the magical energy gone. “I just need a minute.” I felt as if I’d been run over by a herd of wild goats. Was this a side effect of the Song of Healing? “Ooofff!” Suddenly, I was assaulted by intense licking and sticky slobber. “Goodness, calm…
