The mechanic of time travel has become a recurring aspect of Zelda games ever since 1998, where the Link in Ocarina of Time moves forward in time at an accelerated rate in order to age seven years and be properly heralded the Hero of Time. In many parts of Ocarina of Time, whether mandatory or not, players must utilize the power of the Master Sword via the Temple of Time to jump between Link as a child and Link as…

Impa is one of the most beloved characters in the entire Zelda series, with her appearance as Zelda’s caretaker dating back to the very first Legend of Zelda title. Being one of the oldest characters in the series, that means she’s had a wide variety of appearances, and most of them have been completely different from each other. We’ve seen Impa as an old woman in Breath of the Wild, more of a mentor than a warrior, only for that…

A remake of a classic video game can often inspire a fun time for nostalgic fans, so much so that it can inspire great works of art. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is no exception. With Nintendo’s release of a remake of the classic Zelda title back in 2019, fans seemed to be on the edge of their seats with excitement. After all, it’s not like you could go back and visit Koholint Island re-imagined every day. Now you…

The de-make is a burgeoning genre in the world of fan games. These unique projects take an established video game title, usually one from a long-running series, and re-imagine it with the graphics and gameplay of older or less powerful hardware. A Nintendo 64 game could be re-imagined as an NES or Game Boy title, or a GameCube game could be re-imagined as a Super NES or Game Boy Advance title. With the recent release of high-profile de-makes like Prime…

Nintendo has announced that they are adding to their already colorful lineup of Switch Lite consoles with a brand new blue color this May. Not to be confused with the already released turquoise color, this new console is a much darker shade of blue. This Switch Lite will be a new addition to Nintendo’s regular lineup, rather than a limited edition color, expanding the number of readily available colors for Switch Lite to five. While the blue Switch Lite will…

What’s up, Zelda fans?! Who’s ready for another exciting edition of Zelda Dungeon’s Caption Contest? We’ve been highlighting a lot of moments from Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity since the game released last year, but one key character hasn’t really gotten his due in the contest quite yet. That character is the Prophet of Doom Astor, one of Age of Calamity‘s biggest baddies, and this week’s contest will be all about him! Last Week’s Contest: A Korok tested fate last…

I’m not gonna lie. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks (which I’ll henceforth refer to as “the DS Zelda’s”) are my two least favorite Zelda games. There are a bunch of different reasons why, but the main one for me is the controls. I just don’t like the stylus movement system and holding my big 3DS XL with one hand while using the other hand to draw a path for Link to move gives me cramps. Another…

Zelda fans all know the moment–the first time in the franchise history that players took hold of the controller and guided Link into a small cave at the top of the screen; an Old Man warns the Hero and gives him the Wooden Sword. Now thanks to Esty artist ChikkiThingsLtd, fans can leave home with a wave of nostalgia–and perhaps finally remember their keys! This Zelda key holder includes five key ring swords, which lock into place for storage; and…

Have you ever wished the Switch had a bigger screen? How does 650% bigger sound? Space software engineer Michael Pick recently created the world’s largest functioning Nintendo Switch. The behemoth of a console is 70″x30″ and 65 pounds with a 4K display. Though playing it may require a serious stretch, additional Joy-Cons and Pro Controllers are also compatible. This one-of-a-kind Switch now belongs to the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University. So while a massive Switch may not…
