Jabu Jabu’s Belly is a pretty straightforward dungeon in Ocarina of Time. Armed with your sword, shield, slingshot, and eventually boomerang, you wouldn’t have much of a hard time getting through it. In the latest campaign of Zelda Warfare, Mases and I decided we needed to show some love to some of the items you wouldn’t normally use while inside Jabu Jabu. This created some pretty fun situations, and was one of my favorite times playing this dungeon. But it’s not all just…

Everyone here at Zelda Dungeon pretty much knows how long of a process it was to Breath of the Wild to bring it took life. We saw delays, teasers, and cryptic messages about the game, but in the end, it was all worth it. Thanks to one fan, we now have a Cliffs Notes-style look into what exactly went in to making this Zelda title. In this recent episode of LORE in a Minute!, we get a quick, albeit in-depth look of…

The notion of Zelda having an alter ego to adopt and a new persona as a form of protection became a recurring idea in Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker through the popular Sheik and Tetra, and even Twilight Princess had scrapped designs for Sheik as well. Despite simply being alter egos for Zelda, Tetra and Sheik are among some of the strongest, most celebrated female characters in the series as a result of their personality or combat prowess. While these characters…

According to Eiji Aonuma, this tremendous sandbox RPG was definitely looked at during the early development of the latest Zelda game. During a recent interview with GameSpot, Aonuma, along with Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, talked about the development process for…

However, one such proprietor may have stumbled upon a Zelda build that hasn’t been seen in a very long time. A game collector that goes by the username bowser22 is currently trying to sell what appears to be a…

Kevin and I were tasked to pick one character from the series who we felt was the most fleshed out and compelling. I personally felt…
