There’s some good news for fans of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and those who just love to compete as Link as they race for 1st place!  An exclusive new reward has become available on My Nintendo UK and Europe in the form of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Window Sticker Sets.  There are 3 sets in total, and one just happens to feature our favorite hero clad in classic green astride the Master Cycle Zero. Each sticker set features some in-game…

Nintendo confirmed to Eurogamer that the “Tears” in Tears of the Kingdom refers to teardrops, rather than a tear in paper, fabric, or the space-time continuum. Zelda Dungeon’s very own Rod Lloyd had all but determined this to be the case by examining the Japanese phonetics of the game’s title, where the word for tear as it relates to crying has a distinct pronunciation from the word meaning to tear something up. Regardless of the correct pronunciation, both meanings of…

After three long years, the highly anticipated follow-up to Breath of the Wild was finally given a name during Monday’s Nintendo Direct: Tears of the Kingdom. The newly announced title is certainly evocative; it has already re-energized the Zelda theory community and has even fueled speculation on Nintendo’s decision not to livestream the Direct in the UK. But perhaps the most puzzling Tears of the Kingdom development this week relates to the creation of the game’s dedicated subreddit. Not long…

I’m sure I wasn’t alone in having two major questions since the announcement of Breath of the Wild‘s sequel: “What is it called?” and “When can I play it?” On Tuesday, those questions were finally answered, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be releasing on May 12th, 2023. Let the speculation begin! With those crucial details out in the open, our queries will turn to the game itself. What will be different from its predecessor? What will carry…

Hot on the heels of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom‘s new trailer and title reveal, Nintendo released a hefty amount of screenshots and artwork for the upcoming game. Seeing the first official art for the game is exciting, reminiscent of when the first art for Breath of the Wild and Age of Calamity was released. There’s quite a bit to unpack from the art, such as the states of Hyrule Castle, Death Mountain, and, from the logo, the Master Sword in…

The time has finally come! The September Direct has come and gone and left us with some exciting news about the sequel to Breath of the Wild. Named Tears of the Kingdom, the highly anticipated title will release May 12th, 2023! The new trailer teases an open world in the sky, featuring gameplay staples from the first game such as climbing, yet adding some new gimmicks as well. There are mysterious Zonai marking on cliffs and amidst the skies Link…

New missions and rewards have arrived for the month of September for Nintendo Switch Online members. September’s four waves of rewards are based upon the classic Nintendo Entertainment System, and Wave 2’s Icon Elements feature popular sprites and characters from The Legend of Zelda! If you’ve been collecting Icon Elements for a while, you are likely already familiar with how to complete missions and gain rewards.

One of my favorite pastimes in Breath of the Wild is climbing up to high places and seeing how far I can glide down. Sometimes when I come in for a landing, there are enemies to dispatch, and while airborne, there’s nothing better than whipping out my trusty bow to fell enemies before my feet ever touch the ground. The problem? Sometimes aiming and making sure the arrows fly true can get pretty awkward and frustrating. This is an especially…

I’m going to be honest. To date, I still haven’t collected all 900 Korok Seeds in Breath of the Wild. The hounding “Shame” scene in Game of Thrones rings in my ears at this very moment. However, a unique trick exists for finding all of those pesky seeds quite readily, and then some! Be wary, readers, as this technique is not for the faint of heart. In this recent video by glitch hunter GamingReinvented, we are able to witness a masterful…

Back in 2020, the internet was set ablaze when concept art for the long rumored Skeikah-inspired Zelda game from Retro Studios was discovered on the ArtStation account of Sammy Hall, a former pre-production concept artist for Retro. After the story began to get around, he deleted the account, adding an extra layer of mystery to the story. Before the account was deactivated, quite a bit of info was unearthed about the project, but the burning unanswered question on everyone’s mind…
