We are back with another weeks worth of Daily Debates to, well, debate! We picked the minds of Zelda Dungeon's Writing Team, getting some of the best and most engaging questions to give our hot takes on! We cover a bunch of different issues, such as: what we think of the Switch OLED, our favorite tunes in Skyward Sword, the idea that we might not be playing as Link in Breath of the Wild 2, interactive memories, voice acting, Zelda as a playable character or companion, and if Nintendo botched Zelda's 35th anniversary.
Come hang out with us, and be sure to check us out over on Twitch!

Welcome to another episode of the Champions' Cast! This week, we're joined by Zelda Universe's Alex Trevino to discuss and review the first wave of DLC for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Pulse of the Ancients! Find out what we thought about the new skill tree, learn about all the different upgrades available, if we liked the new Flail and Master Cycle weapons, what viscous monsters were the worst, and of course, if we rated the new playable characters, the Battle Tested Guardian, as a thumbs up or a thumbs down.
All this, plus we get Alex's take on whether it's still possible that the events of Age of Calamity will have any bearing on the plot of Breath of the Wild 2, or if that ship has long sailed. Check it out!

We're still on cloud nine after finally seeing the latest Breath of the Wild 2 trailer, so this week, the gang tackle your fan questions and theories! We're covering a whole array of topics, including our take on the popular fan theory about the Zonai Tribe and their potential influence on the game. Plus, might we be playing both in the present and 10,000 years in the past? Will Age of Calamity's ending have any impact on Breath of the Wild 2? Is it coincidence or design that Skyward Sword HD releases so close before? What's the sweet spot for open world gameplay vs traditional storytelling? Is Demise showing back up? How about Astor? How about Fi?!
So much to unpack, so much to talk about! Make sure you're hanging out with us!

We're still coming down from the high of last week's Nintendo Direct, where we finally got to see new footage from the sequel to Breath of the Wild, so this week, we tried to put our thinking caps on and really break down what we saw. Come listen to our theories on Link's arm, how Runes might work, the relationship between the Sky and the Ground, what's up with Link's Champions Tunic, who that creepy corpse guy might be, what happens to Zelda and so much more! We only got about 1:30 of new footage, but there's so much to unpack!
This, plus what' up with Nintendo not revealing the subtitle for the sequel, and did this trailer really move the needle for us, or did it leave us a little underwhelmed? Come hang with us!

E3 finally happened and it did not disappoint! We got a brand new look at the still-untitled sequel to Breath of the Wild, the first footage we've seen in over two years! Come hear our thoughts on the trailer, what we noticed about Link's hand, speculation over the new ruins, our thoughts on Hyrules sky and much more! Plus, we talk about Age of Calamity's DLC, the lack of special Zelda 35th Anniversary stuff, and more!
All that, plus we give our two cents on Metroid Dread (!!!), the newest Smash fighter, and all the big games revealed at E3!

We're so close we can TASTE it. Eight days away from E3 and the potential revealing of Breath of the Wild 2, Age of Calamity DLC, and Skyward Sword HD details in what seems like it could be a very Zelda heavy presentation has over the moon. Of course, the best way to know where you're going is to know where you've been, so this week, Andy and Al take a look at some of the high points and low spots Zelda has found itself in over the years at E3.
This, plus BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TIME. We have started a Twitch channel and our first stream will be post-Nintendo Direct on the 15th at 10 am PST. To get our channel kicked off in the right way, we are GIVING AWAY a Champions' Cast t-shirt - all you need to do to enter the draw is go follow the channel. That's it!

It seems like forever since the last time we got to say this, but it's E3 Predictions time! Of course, the million dollar question for Zelda fans and Nintendo fans everywhere is after two long years will we finally see Breath of the Wild 2?! The gang disagree on that, but that's not all we're putting money on the table for. Will there be new Zelda amiibo? What's going on with the Age of Calamity DLC, Pulse of the Ancients? Have we seen everything there is to see in Skyward Sword HD, or is there more to be revealed? What new character might join the Smash Ultimate roster? Could we see the reveal of the Switch Pro? And what else might Nintendo have planned beyond Zelda?
Come predict with us and tell us if you're #TeamAndy or #TeamAlasyn on the Breath of the Wild 2 debate!
