In every Zelda game, Link travels to the distant corners of Hyrule to explore dungeons, defeat the bosses, and then tackle the final boss with everything you’ve learned and obtained. And once you defeat the final boss, you’re thanked by Zelda and proclaimed as the Hero of Hyrule! But, why did Link originally begin his quest that led him to this moment? What was his original intention for doing what he did? Link’s intentions varies game by game so today, I…

One of the worst kept secrets heading into this years E3 was the unveiling of the Mario Bros. and Rabbids crossover game, Mario+Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. While the announcement may have been a bit predictable, there’s no denying that crossover makes sense, as the aesthetics of both worlds fit together quite nicely, and both series share the same quirky charm about them. I dare say I even think the game looks pretty good. While putting Mario and Rabbids together seems like…

In Breath of the Wild, players are very quickly given the narrative of the story. 10,000 years ago, we know that the princess and the hero succeeded in stopping the Calamity from destroying Hyrule with the aid of the Guardians and the Divine Beasts. We also know that after 10,000 years, the Calamity struck again and took over Hyrule because of the events that took place that led to Link’s 100 year slumber. The question for today is, had Zelda…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke many traditional Zelda conventions – it offered numerous weapons to choose from, different armor that could be crafted and upgraded, dungeons that could be completed in any order the player sought fit, and the ability to jump and climb just to name a few. However, one thing Breath of the Wild did differently which really stood out was getting rid of Link’s traditional green tunic and hat in favor of the…

There is no denying that Breath of the Wild is a massive game, touting more geographical real estate than any other game in the series and offering enough quests for even the most exploration-focused player. If one was to set out to see all there is to see in those Hyrulian wilds, he or she will find a daunting task indeed. But with all there is to explore and do in Breath of the Wild, was there anything that should have…

The runes in Breath of the Wild were great, dynamic, multi-purpose tools that lent a great deal of creativity to players in how they interacted with puzzles, enemies, traversal and more. Giving all of the runes to Link at the start of his quest allowed players to start tinkering and exploring the runes’ different uses early on. But, should there have been more items at Link’s disposal throughout Breath of the Wild? As with much of the game, the entire…

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was typically fraught with feral beasts and monsters, but I’ve always found the bosses of the series to be the most impressive. True hallmarks of Zelda, towering creatures and impressive spectacles are what all fans have come to expect waiting for them at the end of a dungeon. Breath of the Wild was a more unique case. Dungeons were more or less replaced by a plethora of pocket challenges, the shrines, whilst…

The Zelda Dungeon Informer Marathon ended a little over a week ago. Staff members from both Zelda Informer and Zelda Dungeon played through the entire Zelda series in the span of a week and, teaming up with viewers, raised an even $5,000 for Extra Life. Considering the fact that the original goal was $2,000, that’s an amazing accomplishment, and it’s all going to such a wonderful cause! Now that the marathon is over, what did you guys think, if you…

Bringing older games onto current generation systems is nothing new. Nintendo’s arguably been one of the forerunners on this front, whether it’s been the Virtual Console bringing their classic library to new gamers or their recent trend of upgrading older games to newer hardware. Since backwards compatibility is less of a talked-about selling point, the trend is moving towards games being remade from the ground up. We’ve already started to see the older Legend of Zelda games move towards the…

The Zelda bestiary is a broad one, a gargantuan gamut of vermin, ghouls and hominids. From the bloodless ReDeads and their petrifying wails to the towering, tentacled terrors that once haunted The Great Sea as Giant Octoroks, encountering such foes throughout the series has always been a highlight. In Breath of the Wild we’ve seen the return of the Lynel, a hellish beast whose finally been given the form it deserves, appearing in earlier, pixelated iterations of the series and…
