Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Tag: Overworld

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is one of two Legend of Zelda games for the Game Boy Advance handheld, and it’s probably the least appreciated of them – though, for good reason, because what game can really compete if A Link to the Past is in the running? However, a certain Reddit user has come online and shown some love to The Minish Cap by sharing the complete overworld map of the game world…

Hello everybody and welcome to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! In the Legend Of Zelda series, the overworld plays a pretty important role, especially in the original and Zelda II. It usually acts as the main hub to get to all the different parts of Hyrule, but it sometimes has it’s own significant purpose (for example it holds all the statues you need to find in Twilight Princess) as well as a few small secrets here and there. But…

Many fans have been wondering about the world of Tri Force Heroes. Though the demo featured different dungeon locations and the Nintendo Direct showed off a town, we were all unsure of how big this new game will be and how the world will be laid out. In a recent interview with Kotaku, director Hiromasa Shikata explained that Tri Force Heroes will not have an overworld map, but it will still feature various unique locations that players can explore…

Throughout some the of best 3D titles of The Legend of Zelda series, we’ve seen some pretty iconic places: mystical forests, frozen peaks, and mysterious temples. But what I’d like to discuss today is the area that binds them all together in a single world. Today, we are going to take a look back at the overworld zones, their best features, and what we’d enjoy seeing most in future titles…

“Zelda Unknown” is a video series by Commonwealth realm that analyzes and theorizes about various aspects of upcoming Zelda games. This time around he has teamed up with M. Productions to put together a lengthy episode that offers up a really interesting theory on the locations we see on the map for Zelda U, and how they line up rather nicely with the worlds from three distinct Zelda experiences – Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and The Legend of Zelda (NES). I find their research to be rather compelling, though obviously it’s all speculation at this point…

Even with the release of Majora’s Mask 3D behind us, we still have an extremely exciting year ahead for Zelda fans with the release of the next truly “new” game in the series: Zelda U. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait too long to learn more about it. In a recent interview with gaming publication Gamereactor, Aonuma not only discussed Majora’s Mask 3D, but also talked a little bit about the still mysterious Zelda U. Among the aspects he touched upon were the sheer size of the in-game world in…

A brand new YouTuber named The Second Narrator has released a custom orchestrated version of the Overworld Theme from Link’s Awakening. This is one of many great orchestrations that have and will come to The Second Narrator’s channel, so definitely give it a listen. Check out the music video after the jump!

Two months have flown by since A Link Between Worlds was released outside Japan. With Link’s portrait-themed adventure now behind us, anticipating the next major Zelda game on the horizon is the new order of business. Little is officially known about this elusive title, set to be the first original entry in the series to come out on the Wii U (not counting the Dynasty Warriors spin-off, Hyrule Warriors, that is). What we do know, however, is that the game will have over 25…

Hello readers! Brian here with the twenty-second edition of “The Best and Worst of Zelda.” Today we’ll be covering the second half of the Zelda series’ overworld themes, beginning with the Great Sea and making it all the way to Hyrule and Lorule from A Link Between Worlds. I’m really appreciating your feedback and opinions, and I’d love to see some more topic suggestions for the future, so keep them coming! The newer Zelda games feature more game-specific music. By…

Hello readers! It’s Brian, back from a two week hiatus with the twenty-first edition of “The Best and Worst of Zelda.” Today’s topic is something of my own creation, mostly due to the fact that there just have not been many suggestions lately (and not for lack of comments), but do remember that I’m always taking ideas for future editorials, so leave those in your comments below! I absolutely love writing about music. It’s not only something I am quite…
