It’s our first show since returning from the 2022 Zelda Dungeon Marathon, and this week, Andy and Al don’t have a show topic per-say, but rather, are just sitting down and catching up! They go over some of the games they played at the Marathon, tell some stories about the event, discuss some recent happenings in the video game world, debate whether we’ll see Breath of the Wild 2 at the 2023 Marathon, and answer some fan questions about the…

After a gruelling, amazing, sleep deprived but incredibly rewarding week, Andy and Al are taking the week to recharge and recoup before getting back into the swing of things next week, but don’t worry! We’ve got some LIVE Zelda trivia and the return of Name That Zelda Tune from this years Zelda Dungeon Marathon! Hosted by the big man himself, Mases Hagopian, come listen to our competitors (including Andy) battle to see who knows the most about Zelda! Thanks to…

The biggest crossover event in the history of Zelda podcasts is here! Live and in person from the Zelda Dungeon Marathon, Andy and Al sit down with the host and director of Another Zelda Podcast, David Geisler! Over the years, the Champions’ Cast, later the Zelda Cast, has developed a ton of running gags, jokes, and “-isms”, and we asked David to weigh in with his thoughts! Is Twilight Princess really that ugly? Is Satori Mountain really that cool? Is…

Welcome back for another week of the freshest Zelda podcast around! Today, Andy and Al are taking a look over the series and trying to identify which dungeons mini-bosses are actually way cooler than the final boss of the dungeon. Dark Link? Yeah, way cooler than Morpha. Dangoro? Fyrus doesn’t even come close to matching that fight. On and on, until we have a definitive list of ultra cool mini-bosses, some of which may surprise you. Plus, we give some…

Strap in for a long show, because this week Andy and Al are talking about the INTRO’S to each Zelda game! Shamelessly stealing from our frenemies the Tier Force Heroes, we go through game by game and assign a tier ranking to the into of each game. What even constitutes as an intro? What goals should a great intro accomplish? Are we giving any leeway for game manuals? How can we love the long intro to one game and not…

After a week off sick, the gang are back together to answer your fan submitted questions! We asked you to head to Twitter and give us questions, and you delivered big time! Has the fervor around the Zelda timeline died out in recent years? Is there any way the corpse shown in the sequel trailer is Demise? Are the days of new, top down Zelda games over? What’s a way to mix breakable weapons and classic Zelda items? What were…

Unfortunately, Andy and Al both managed to come down with Covid, so they weren’t able to record a new show this week, but fret not! We didn’t want to leave anyone hanging, so we dug into the Omega Metroid Podcast archives for a never-heard-before episode featuring Andy and Zelda Dungeon’s own Rod Lloyd breaking down what they would want to see in a potential crossover between the two Nintendo franchises! Be sure to tune in next week as we get…

Good day, good day, and welcome to yet another show where we still don’t know anything about Breath of the Wild 2 or when the next Nintendo Direct might be. It’s not all bad news though, as this week, we participated in Linktober’s Zelda Creator Con and had a really fun show, debuting a new segment called Zelda’s Percentages. The premise is simple: we read a statement and then assign a percentage on the likelihood of it coming true or…

Welcome to the Zelda Cast! This week, we are laying down some heavy predictions for the as-of-yet unannounced Nintendo Direct that we’re presuming will slot in the usual E3 time frame (if E3 was happening this year, that is). Andy and Al argue about whether or not it’s finally time for Nintendo to pull the lid back on Breath of the Wild 2 and completely show us what this game is all about, plus, have differing opinions as to if…

To everyone that’s been following the Zelda Dungeon podcast for the last four an a half years, we’ve got some news for you: the podcast will be undergoing a name change! Four and a half years ago when I decided I wanted to revive the Zelda Informer Podcast (that’s going waaay back!), the hip and happening thing in the Zelda world was The Champions’ Ballad, the last piece of downloadable content for Breath of the Wild. Wanting to play on…
