Nintendo has been fond of retouching Zelda titles as they’ve re-released them over the years on various consoles . This week, we asked Zelda Dungeon staff to rank their top five changes made to games in remakes.

As all of you know by now, an HD remake of Twilight Princess, creatively titled Twilight Princess HD, was announced on Thursday with a release date set for March 4th of next year. With the release of the game, it will mean that four out the five 3D Zelda games, a staggering eighty percent, will have been remade. Personally, I find that to be a bit excessive. The last thing I want to do is kill someone’s hype for a…

As many know at this point, Nintendo has seemed to remake quite a few Zelda games for both 3DS and Wii U. With Zelda U and Tri Force Heroes releasing in the future, who’s to say when the next remake will release? And to that, there’s a follow-up question- what will the next remake be? Would it be a remake of an older Zelda title, or a newer one? Is it of high-demand, or do you even care to see…

Throughout the Zelda franchise’s history, Nintendo has found ways to port and update Zelda titles as new console have been brought to the market. However, not until recently have there been full-on revisions to particular installments. Since 2011, the Zelda series has seen three remakes; one on a home console, the other two on handheld. I’m going to analyze just how each of these titles have changed in comparison to their original versions and see how their releases might have…

Hello Readers! Brian here with the eleventh edition of “The Best and Worst of Zelda.” Today’s topic was suggested by Hero’s Shade, so much thanks to him! Don’t forget to write your ideas for next week in the comments below. I thought this week a fitting time to release a post about remakes, with The Wind Waker HD having just come out, and hints of a possible Majora’s Mask remake from Aonuma himself. To clarify, this post is strictly about…

Was Zelda ever mainstream? Well, at least as far as the gaming world is concerned, a strong case can be made that it was. I’d never even heard of The Legend of Zelda before the hype leading up to Ocarina of Time, but that game was met with so much hype from so many circles even months before its release that it’s hard to argue with its relative importance in the gaming world. Recently, however, there seems to be a…

Majora’s Mask 3D and Operation Moonfall are two concepts which have been floating around the internet for a while now. What with the most recent “end of the world” claims receiving much media attention around the world, interest in a Majora’s Mask remake has been piqued once again, the most recent claim being that Nintendo is planning to announce such a game on the 21st of December; the day which the world is supposedly said to end, according to the…

I’ve talked a lot about Zelda remakes, in two separate videos about Operation Moonfall, and more recently in a video about whether we should have an A Link to the Past or Majora’s Mask remake. I’ve made it abundantly clear that I don’t personally enjoy the prospect of having a Zelda remake at all, and this extends further into my general distaste for remakes. When a remake pops up in a game series I’m not as involved in, I don’t…

Hey guys! Got a new video discussion and this is a topic I think some of you have been waiting for me to cover. I’ve received the question many times now: “Which would you rather Nintendo remake, A Link to the Past or Majora’s Mask?” I’d been avoiding answering because I’ve been planning this video. This video covers exactly that subject. It’s a detailed list of reasons why. I will not be covering my thoughts on Majora’s Mask 3D much…

The folks over at Cubed3 have recently written an article talking about the recent craze over Nintendo remakes. Ocarina of Time 3D is the biggest game out for the Nintendo 3DS right now and it is a remake. On the horizon, the next big title in September from Nintendo is Starfox 64 3D, another remake. The Zelda community has especially been flattered with speculation of remakes. Operational Moonfall is a fan effort to get Majora’s Mask remade, while Shigeru Miyamoto…
