Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Tag: Zelda Wii U

My, that’s a lackluster game name, isn’t it? E3 cannot come fast enough, so that we can finally learn the actual title of “The Legend of Zelda: Forever Delayed” (Thanks to KittyKyomi for the rather appropriate pending title). But until then, and until it finally releases on both systems in March 2017 (or maybe even later – who even knows at this point?), there is a lot to think about. Eight Zelda games – EIGHT – have been release since…

Zelda Wii U is almost guaranteed to be releasing this year, what with Nintendo’s latest – and rather adamant – clip of the game, with a big ol’ “2016” plastered in front of Link. That basically means that we can expect Nintendo reveal a metric ton of info on the game this coming E3, followed by a bunch of advertising and marketing for the game. After all, as Nintendo’s biggest franchise, beyond Mario, Zelda deserves no less. That being said,…

Over the years Link has had plenty of companions, but most of them are fairies, imps, or even hats! Though he’s had interactions with characters from common-races (like carrying Princess Ruto around in Jabu-Jabu’s belly), Link has never had a full-length game companion that was either a Goron, Deku Scrub, Zora, or any alternate races extended from those. To have a small floating fairy companion makes sense for functionality, but would a more humanoid companion be additionally useful to Link…

In a recent YouTube video by Zeltic, he listed five things that Zelda U could learn from A Link to the Past. The first point was to make the introduction sequence short and simple. The next point was to have the perfect difficulty that was not so hard that it made you want to throw the controller, but not so easy that you would breeze through it. He felt that the game should have lots of dungeons like A Link…

It’s common knowledge at this point that the ‘first’ Ganon(dorf) was the Demon King Demise, and that the ‘first’ Zelda was the mortal being the Goddess Hylia took after she sent the human race skyward and away from the war on the surface. This took place in Skyward Sword. The console game released in 2011 did explain the beginning of several key elements we see in each game. For an example other than the main characters, there’s the making of…

In a recent video by Zeltic, he pointed out five things that he believed Zelda U could learn from The Adventure of Link on the NES. It stated that the game should not have experience like in The Adventure of Link, as it would detract from its non linear gameplay. Other points were bringing back the raft and adding Dark Link. The remaining points were bringing back the jump and varied spells.   Check out the video after the jump!

We are likely leading up to a brand new news update on Zelda Wii U soon. Tri Force Heroes is no long the center of attention, Hyrule Warriors’ new DLC and 3DS release have been fully detailed and are no longer big news, and of course, the 30th anniversary is coming up. It is finally time we heard more about this Wii U juggernaut (Subtitle, anyone?). That being said, many of us fans are still speculating on what we may…

It has been years on end since we have seen any sort of changing seasons in a Zelda title. Oracle of Seasons had clever use of the seasons in its puzzles and exploration, but after that, seasons were dropped as a mechanic, in favour of the often re-used idea of time travel. But what about Zelda Wii U? There is a good chance time travel could be used again in some aspect, but could seasons be re-introduced to this new,…

To many players, the Zelda series is best known for its story. The memorable plot lines and legends connected to each tile stay ith the fans for years. Still, though, I can’t help but feel like Zelda’s stories are rather simplistic, to be blunt. Yes, the intricate and complex timeline is one thing, but in terms of individual games, no one entry in the series has a storyline or lore that takes a lot of thought to understand on the…

Potential has always been something Zelda had in spades. As likely the world’s most famous adventure game, it can accomplish so much, and often times, we expect it to accomplish such great things. Unfortunately, “expectations” and “hype” can be hurtful things for series like Zelda. We are all on the edges of our seats waiting on news for Zelda Wii U, the potentially quintessential series title, but are we expecting too much of it? After seeing the HD footage of…
