Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Tag: The Wind Waker

Since the Ocarina of Time manga’s debut in 2000, artist duo Akira Himekawa has, in one form or another, adapted most of Link’s subsequent adventures. Almost each iteration is only loosely based on its respective source material, however, but the basic story is the same, but the duo definitely takes its fair share of liberties with the finer details. Based on what I’ve read, many characters, including the legendary hero himself, often have more characterization than their video game counterparts….

Mini Boss encounters in the Zelda franchise are meant for two reasons: to indicate that you’re halfway through a dungeon, and to add to the enjoyment of the level. Youtubers Justin and Kev, who run the channel SuperRealProductions ranked the top 10 mini bosses based on fun factor, complexity, mechanics, and difficulty…

As it started in Zelda II, Link was given different attacks and maneuvers based on his swordplay. Years pass, and throughout the titles he’s taught various different skills to put to use. In Wind Waker, he wasn’t taught any moves other than the Hurricane Spin, yet the final battle happened to be one of the fights with the most swordplay.  Link’s swordplay is an essential mechanic to Zelda titles now, though the question is; should it remain the same, or…

In most Zelda games, you’ll find a specific pattern repeated throughout every dungeon. One of these being the mini-boss of each dungeon and usually, they’re pretty easy to defeat (unless they have something more complicated to them). You can even find them outside of dungeons! There are tons of mini-bosses, sometimes some are brought from a previous installment to another. But the question here is: Which is your favorite? To read more into it, hit the jump to check it…

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…

Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” seems to be quite the versatile song. As with many of her popular hits, it is ripe for spawning video gae themed parodies, and versus, the YouTube channel known for it’s head-to-head game races, has answered that call. versus decided to head over to Dragon Roost Island, and drop some beats in “Sailboats”, a The Wind Waker parody of Nicki Minaj’s song. Hit the jump for the full song. (Warning: harsh language)

Throughout almost every Zelda game, Link has always had a companion that could take him from point A to point B. He could even just spin in circles, if he really wanted to- either way his companion acted as his way of transportation. And as we know, we’ve seen quite a few companions Link can use as transportation- so the question is, which do you prefer? Do you prefer galloping throughout Hyrule, or sailing above it? Perhaps even flying above…

For the second time this week, a marimba-based cover of a classic Zelda tune has captured our hearts with its creative take on a beloved theme. Musical group, Mart0zz just released a cover of “Dragon Roost Island” from The Wind Waker using a marimba, guitar, woodblock, shaker, castanets, bass guitar, and clapping. These all work in beautiful harmony and create a magnificent balance that leaves a nice hum in your ears. The band has created a number of…
