In 2011, Nintendo introduced the highly controversial official timeline which would map out the position of each Zelda game in a linear fashion. The star of this show was The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which stands out as one of the best story-telling games in the Zelda franchise. This is saying something, considering the games in this series are built upon divine foundations of lore and legend. On top of a fantastical plot, the game introduced motion controls, a…

After two long years of waiting, the second trailer for the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is finally out! Well over a minute in length, the trailer delivers both gameplay, world, and story details for the upcoming game, all set to exciting and eerie music. Decked in a brand new outfit, Link takes to the skies to traverse floating islands, bringing along a magical arm and updated Runes. As many fans have theorized since the release…

The end of this year is rapidly approaching, which means that it’s time for my favorite annual tradition here at Zelda Dungeon: Best. Zelda. Ever! While no new Zelda games were released this year, we did have some DLC come out for Cadence of Hyrule and we’re looking forward to the upcoming release of a new Hyrule Warriors game: Age of Calamity! The prequel to Breath of the Wild just missed the cut for this year’s list, so you’ll have…

What is the greatest dungeon in the Zelda series? A simple question on the surface, but one with so many layers that it makes finding an answer almost impossible. How does one define ‘great’? Is it the dungeon layout? Perhaps the ways the dungeon item is implemented into the puzzles? Or is it the bombastic boss fight at the end? Surely the music and overall aesthetic play a part? And to be honest – what does being a dungeon in…

It seems like so, so long ago that Nintendo so thrillingly revealed the sequel to the mega-hit Switch game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It was a moment I’ll personally never forget, as I sat there, covering it live for Zelda Dungeon, excited and giddy at the possibilities from a successor to what had quickly become one of my favorite games ever. I remember thinking that it was unlikely that we would see any more information or…

A new decade may now be upon us, but we at Zelda Dungeon wanted to take one final look at the decade that was before we shut the door on it completely. The 2010’s can be seen as a rollercoaster ride for The Legend of Zelda, full of many euphoric highs and a few disappointing lows. But with all things said and done, it’s hard to look back at the past ten years and say that the series didn’t experience…

I can’t believe it’s that time already, but here we are: it’s time for Zelda Dungeon’s 2019 Edition of the Best. Zelda. Ever! Two Zelda games were released this year — one a remake, and one a spinoff — but maybe most crucially, the next mainline installment of the series was teased at E3 when Nintendo revealed the sequel to Breath of the Wild was to be released! Exciting times are ahead for Zelda fans no doubt, but let’s focus…

Welcome… to Fall Brawl! I’m very excited to be here hosting this tournament. You might remember a few months ago, we hosted Zelda Dungeon’s Musical March Madness — a twist on the traditional college basketball tournament that featured an NCAA-style bracket, but with tunes from the Zelda series in place of basketball teams. The concept was such a success and our readers had so much fun with it, we’ve decided to make it a semi-annual event. To this end, we…

Season three of Jamie Plays Zelda is underway and this time around Jamie is exploring the world of Koholint Island as he plays through Link’s Awakening. Jamie is a lifelong gamer, growing up with the Atari 2600 and NES, but despite playing games all his life, the Legend of Zelda series had alluded him. While he played the original Legend of Zelda back in the 1980’s, the rest of the games stood dormant. That is until fairly recently. In early…

It seems like a lifetime ago that The Legend of Zelda Series Producer Eiji Aonuma stood in front of a still image of a new and vibrant Hyrule, explaining how he wanted to rethink the conventions of Zelda and bring a new sense of adventure and exploration to a series some would argue had grown a bit stagnant. Everything about that short video presentation, from Link’s blue tunic, to his mechanical arrows, to the strange creature chasing him, suggested that…
