This week, Andy is flying solo and giving you the breakdown on what very well might be the greatest Zelda spinoff game ever: Cadence of Hyrule! Is the movement an issue? Do you get used to moving on beat? What are the dungeons like? How similar is this to Crypt of the Necrodancer? Who’s Andy’s favorite playable character? All this and more! Also included are Breath of the Wild 2‘s origins and Zelda Dungeon Marathon talk! Tune in for some…

Holy cow. The Zelda world is abuzz with news from E3 that in addition to the 2 Zelda games we knew about, a third, direct sequel to Breath of the Wild is on its way! Will be there be actual dungeons? Is co-op play actually gonna happen? How do we want weapon durability to work? Is Hyrule going to be different enough for a second playthrough? How would we make that world more unique? Did we want a new villain?…

Hello everyone! We live streamed Nintendo’s entire Direct from the 11th, with pre-show recap of E3 up until that point and expectations, and then spent the entirety of the post show picking our jaws up off of the floor. If you missed it or weren’t able to join us for the stream, we’ve got you covered in sweet audio podcast form!

WE ARE SO CLOSE to the biggest gaming extravaganza of the year! E3 may seem a bit smaller than usual this year, but we’re still stoked to see what the Big N has up their sleeves! In the spirit of the industries biggest conference of the year, we go back and take a look at Nintendo’s best and worst offerings at the big show over the years. Everything from Wii Music to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Breath of the Wild…

It’s the most magical time of the year: E3! This year promises to be an absolutely loaded show, with Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokemon Sword and Shield, Link’s Awakening, Fire Emblem Three Houses, and more all sure to make their presences felt during the Nintendo Direct. But of course, the funnest part of the whole thing is trying to predict what the Big N is going to do! So with that being said, we now present you the 2nd annual Champions’…

Welcome back to the Cast! It’s Side Quest week over here at Zelda Dungeon, so of course that means this show is all about our favorite optional activities in the Zelda series. Eventide Island, Kinstones, the Item Check girl, and of course, Anju and Kafei. It’s all here! We of course want to know what your favorite side quests are, so let us know! This is a fun episode you won’t want to miss, and get ready because next week…

It’s Q&A time this week as Andy and Taylor go ahead and answer 20 Debatable questions. Do Shrines do enough to replace dungeons? What if there were a female version of Ganondorf? What song should would we choose to replace the main theme if we had to pick? Is it too late for Impa in Smash? Why does Andy think the Zelda timeline is so lame!? We have all this, plus some quick thoughts on Detective Pikachu! Come in and…

Andy makes a triumphant return to the show this week and doesn’t waste any time getting down to business, asking where the heck Cadence of Hyrule has been since it’s announcement and taking Taylor through a list of dream Zelda spinoffs. Pikmin with Cucco’s? Assassin’s Creed with Sheikah? YES PLEASE! As if that wasn’t enough, to celebrate the Game Boy’s 30th birthday, the lads count down their top ten OG GB games ever. Link’s Awakening, Pokemon, Metroid II, and more!…

After (un)comfortably deep diving into Tingle’s Rosey Rupeeland last week, Andy decided to briefly escape the country, so Taylor sets out and finds Kevin to help him discuss today’s topics. Breath of the Wild has continued its inexorable ride with a VR element using Nintendo Labo while Kevin and Taylor debate whether VR is a good idea. The game also gets an update that improves the load time of Shrines, which of course leads to the Champions’ thinking about speedrunning! It…
