Guess That Zelda Character is back, but there’s a twist! There are only so many characters in the Zelda universe, but the locations are seemingly endless. So this time, we had to guess the Zelda location in so many questions. I say “so many” because we started off with 16 questions, and it proved to be a bit difficult for us… at least at first! So come hear us get into each other’s heads and play along! Try and see…

Warning: this episode will make you hungry. This week, we have some special guests join us for a talk all about food, Zelda, and recipes! We sat down with Aime and Walter Woods and chatted about their new cookbook, The Unofficial Legend of Zelda Cookbook! How did it come to be? How was Nintendo in this process? What inspired them to make this? What was the reaction when they surpassed their Kickstarter goal by almost 30-fold? How did they make…

Strap yourself in, because this is a marathon episode dedicated to one of the most oft-forgotten about Zelda titles: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds! We are definitively ranking all 12 dungeons from the game, so there is a lot of go through! From Eastern Palace all the way to Lorule Castle and everything in between, we go in depth talking everything dungeon related! Come listen to what dungeons ended up being our favorites. The gang were joined…

Another week, another episode where we know not a single thing more about Breath of the Wild 2 than we did last year. That’s okay though, since we did what we do best here on the Champions’ Cast: speculate! This week, we asked everyone to head over to Facebook and ask a Zelda question to get a Zelda answer, and you delivered big time! We had tons of questions to answer, including what would we undo in the Zelda series,…

Metal Gear!? To hear those words uttered in a Zelda game would give me no end of joy, but then, I’m a big fan of stealthy games and Tactical Espionage Action. But after kicking around the idea, I realized that Zelda has a plethora of stealthy sections spread out in the series for us to dissect and discuss. Come hang with us as we talk Gerudo Valley, Silent Realms, the Yiga Clan Hideout, the Forsaken Fortress, and more as we…

The Intro Dungeon: a games first dungeon that acts both as a tutorial as to how the rest of the game plays, and as a standalone experience. That’s our definition anyways, so with that in mind, the gang discuss the 5 best intro dungeons in the series and give some honorable mentions to strong opening “areas”. We also shoot on the worst intro sections (no points for guessing mine) and what made them so lackluster. Come have fun as Corey…

We recently undertook a mammoth task here at the site and polled 30 different staff members to gauge their favorite dungeons in the Zelda series. We then took all that data and made one overall list, with the dungeons that finished highest on most peoples lists getting pints that determined their placement on our master list. We finally revealed all 50 dungeons on that list, and the gang are here to give you their thoughts on the placements and what…

A couple months ago, the Zelda Dungeon writing team put their collective heads together to think of some specific in-depth changes they wanted to see take place from Breath of the Wild to its sequel. This week on the show, we go over the list of suggested changes and weight in on what we’d like to see! Recipe Books? A customizable base? Some forgeable weapons? More exuberant music? Underwater travel? A LINK THAT CAN TALK?! All this and more explored…

Live from Linktober’s Zelda Creators Con comes an episode two years in the making – a Phantom Hourglass retrospective! Andy finally replayed Link’s DS adventure for the first time in ten years and shares his thoughts with Alasyn and Mases, two big fans of the game. Is this the first bad Zelda game? What are our thoughts on Temple of the Ocean King? Do the controls kill the game for newbies? Does this game have some of the best items…
