The Champions amiibo set, featuring four figures based on the Champions from Breath of the Wild in a single box, sold out very quickly after it was originally released in 2017. Fortunately, fans in the UK that couldn’t get their hands in this set the first go around finally have another chance. The Champions amiibo set is once again available on the Nintendo UK store for £49.99. The Champions amiibo set includes Urbosa, Mipha, Daruk, and Revali figures, and all…

Around this same time last year, we reported that Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu was asked in an interview what game he would like to make from any Nintendo franchise. Aizu said that he would be interested in doing a “modern remake” of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. And with the remake of Link’s Awakening right around the corner, he was asked about his answer to that question just recently. In a recent interview with Video Game Chronicle, Aizu…

It has been over two years since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s release, and yet, players are still managing to find new glitches. This most recent glitch was recently showcased by none other than the famous YouTube channel GameXplain and brings about a new way to surf Hyrule in style — literally. Using the name “glider surfing”, this glitch allows player to glide endlessly across Hyrule, so long as they do not take damage, hit water, or touch…

Just when you think the speedrunning community has slowed down… Not content with the huge barrier skip found in The Wind Waker, or the multiple new exploits from the Skyward Sword community, the Breath of the Wild speedrunning base have discovered a new glitch which allows them to jump almost infinitely. You can see the glitch in the video below. メレシスト氏の見つけたバグですグリッチや小ネタ-glitches-and-exploitsチャンネルより#ゼルダの伝説 #BreathoftheWild #NintendoSwitch pic.twitter.com/QFsRNfuwFb — ハイラル道場 (@HyruleDojo) July 8, 2019 Dubbed “moonjumping”, the glitch, found by runner Mr. Melessist (and showcased above by @HyruleDojo)…

Finally, after 17 long years, one of the most elusive skips in all of Zelda speedrunning has been cracked. The barrier surrounding the submerged Hyrule Castle in The Wind Waker blocked runners from progressing to Ganon’s Tower early in the game, forcing them to collect the Master Sword and the Triforce of Courage before they could proceed. This, of course, was a lengthy distraction, but no method could be found to skip the barrier. The final piece of the puzzle was a…

Back in January, Nintendo listed two job openings on its Japanese recruitment website for work on the next project in the Zelda franchise. We now know that, as revealed at E3 2019, that next project will be a follow-up to the acclaimed Breath of the Wild. It seems Nintendo is still recruiting for the sequel, as the two positions listed months ago have once again been posted to the company’s recruitment site. Nintendo is seeking both a 3DCG (Terrain) Designer…

Fans in the UK who may want to spice up their purchase of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening are in luck, as there is currently a rupee lamp bundle available for preorder on the Nintendo UK Official Store right here. There are two bundles – one featuring a red rupee, and the other featuring a blue rupee. Both bundles cost £54.99.

Getting to do something you absolutely love to do is a dream that everyone has. It’s one of the primary reasons I enjoy working for Zelda Dungeon. Having the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite game series of all time each and every day is a delight. Of course, getting to work on your favorite franchise is a whole different challenge in itself. Nobody knows how challenging it is to choose who should work on the Zelda series…

It’s pretty awesome that a classic like Link’s Awakening is being reimagined in HD for the Switch! I’d imagine translating a Game Boy title to bigger screens probably had its challenges, especially in how the developers chose to depict the game’s visuals. Weeks after E3, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma expanded on aspects of the Link’s Awakening remake in comments made to Nintendo UK’s website. Aonuma brought up how he wanted to maintain the miniature feel of this Game Boy…

Fans of The Legend of Zelda, it seems, have always called for a dungeon creation or customization tool within the series. The release of Super Mario Maker in 2015 only made those calls louder, as the possibility of a “Zelda Maker” seemed that much more likely given Nintendo’s willingness to hand over the reigns to their flagship franchise. Well, we weren’t the only ones clamoring for such a feature, as series producer Eiji Aonuma has also wanted to see a…
