The Champions’ Cast - Zelda Dungeon Podcast

Episode 182 - Examining The Intertwined Histories of Zelda and Metroid

October 11, 2021

So, full disclosure: this is more an episode about Metroid from a Zelda fans perspective than an episode about Zelda itself, so if you're looking for in depth Zelda, come back next week (when, by the way, we're answering Majora's Mask questions, so if you have any, make sure to ask us on Discord!).

This week, we're celebrating the release of Metroid Dread by looking back and examining why it is that Zelda took off as a series and Metroid hit a stalemate, while then comparing the 35th anniversaries of both series and asking which got the better deal. PLUS, Alasyn finally played Super Metroid as part of her losing an E3 bet, so she shares her first time experiences and talks about the bosses, the Baby Metroid, the controls, the concept of a Metroidvania, and... Phantom Hourglass's Temple of the Ocean King??

Come hang with us, and if you've never played a Metroid game, consider trying Dread!
