Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2018:

Category: Site Updates

Since the release of the first title in The Legend of Zelda franchise, Nintendo has worked hard to create an immersive experience for fans of the series. As each sequel or prequel (as the timeline dictates) is designed, players have had the opportunity to explore not only better graphics but different methods of actual gameplay throughout the series. When the Nintendo 64 hit the shelves, gamers had the opportunity to use the analog stick to direct Link on his adventures throughout Hyrule…

Welcome to a post-Summer Games Done Quick world. This week, I’ll be re-capping all seven Zelda runs featured at the event, as well as chatting to a Skyward Sword runner and bingo player. So sit back and relax after what was likely a very stressful week of watching a single Twitch stream non-stop (what do you mean ‘that was just me’?).   Now Playing This week saw possibly the biggest speedrunning event of the year: Summer Games Done Quick 2018, a…

The Legend of Zelda. We all love it. That’s why we’re here. But let’s be honest, it’s not always perfect. While Nintendo is legendary for the level of polish and painstaking care it puts into The Legend of Zelda games, not everything always comes out perfectly. We are all entitled to express some of our frustrations with a game, no matter how much we love the Zelda series. Whether it is the befuddling mess that is dowsing in Skyward Sword (seriously Skyward…

Breath of the Wild was a huge departure for The Legend of Zelda series and one of the most significant changes was the revisions to the inventory and how items are obtained. Runes replaced many traditional items like bombs and magical abilities, while items like the boomerang and bow became much more standard items. With the changes to Breath of the Wild, what item from a previous Zelda game would you wish was in the game? For me, I would…

Nintendo has created some really great characters in The Legend of Zelda games and their bonds and friendships with Link have certainly caused some fans to want to see a love story blossom. Naturally, a lot of fans imagine Link and Princess Zelda to be together. Our two main protagonists, tied together by fate, falling in love and saving Hyrule by each other’s side! A more recent ship has been between Link and Prince Sidon from Breath of the Wild, whom fans…

Here at Zelda Dungeon, we have all sorts of tips, trick, bestiaries, item lists and comprehensive walkthroughs. Believe it or not, there used to be a time when things like the internet did not exist. Everything a person learned about a Zelda game all came through either word of mouth, the Nintendo Power magazine, or from buying a player’s guide. Now imagine you lived in this time, had no friends who liked Zelda as much as you, and you couldn’t afford a guide book. Which Zelda game,…

A message from Zelda Dungeon‘s Forum Team by Forum Manager Choung “Ninja” Ngyuen: On June 16th, news was broken that one of our former administrators of the Zelda Dungeon forums, Jamie, has suddenly passed away. Many of us are heartbroken because we have lost someone that genuinely cared about the forum, and everyone’s well being inside it. Jamie was a beloved member of the community, and had a hand in making it one of the best places for Zelda fans…

Whew, what an E3 week it has been! Just last Tuesday we finished up the Press Conferences with a whopping Nintendo presentation and we live streamed it for all of you on Twitch! It was one of the most fun times we’ve had on The Champions’ Cast and we thought we’d get it to all of you who weren’t able to make it to the stream. Andy and I settled in, made our bets, and endured the suffering of each…

Love it or hate it, one of the more popular challenges in the Zelda community is speedrunning. Playing through various games in the franchise as fast as possible with the goal of setting and breaking world records has been around almost as long as the series itself. Some do it to raise money for charities at marathons such as our very own annual ZD Marathon or at massive events like AGDQ, while others simply do it for the thrill and…
