Episode 221 - Talking All Things Zelda with Another Zelda Podcast!

July 18, 2022

The biggest crossover event in the history of Zelda podcasts is here! Live and in person from the Zelda Dungeon Marathon, Andy and Al sit down with the host and director of Another Zelda Podcast, David Geisler! Over the years, the Champions’ Cast, later the Zelda Cast, has developed a ton of running gags, jokes, and “-isms”, and we asked David to weigh in with his thoughts! Is Twilight Princess really that ugly? Is Satori Mountain really that cool? Is the Monk Maz Koshia theme rally a banger? Is loving the Tingle DS games as much as Andy does really normal?? All this and so much more from the Marathon, as the two biggest Zelda podcasts in the world finally collide!

… but that’s not all! The crossover event continues! Look for a future episode of Another Zelda Podcast to feature Andy and Al!

Episode 220 - Which Mini-Bosses Are Cooler Than Their Dungeon’s Final Bosses?

Episode 220 - Which Mini-Bosses Are Cooler Than Their Dungeon’s Final Bosses?

July 11, 2022

Welcome back for another week of the freshest Zelda podcast around! Today, Andy and Al are taking a look over the series and trying to identify which dungeons mini-bosses are actually way cooler than the final boss of the dungeon. Dark Link? Yeah, way cooler than Morpha. Dangoro? Fyrus doesn't even come close to matching that fight. On and on, until we have a definitive list of ultra cool mini-bosses, some of which may surprise you. Plus, we give some love to some honorable mentions - mini-bosses that may not eclipse the final boss, but maybe reach the same level.

All this PLUS a tooon of Zelda Dungeon Marathon talk! We detail what games we're playing, the new Zelda Cast merch, world record attempts, and... A Link to the Past using DDR pads to move?? You don't want to miss out!

Episode 219 - Discussing The Best and The Worst Zelda Intro’s

Episode 219 - Discussing The Best and The Worst Zelda Intro’s

July 4, 2022

Strap in for a long show, because this week Andy and Al are talking about the INTRO’S to each Zelda game! Shamelessly stealing from our frenemies the Tier Force Heroes, we go through game by game and assign a tier ranking to the into of each game. What even constitutes as an intro? What goals should a great intro accomplish? Are we giving any leeway for game manuals? How can we love the long intro to one game and not the other? Maybe most pressingly – how long can Andy rant about herding goats?

All this, PLUS some Zelda Dungeon Marathon hype, new merch, and Twilight Princess stream talk! Come weight in with us and tell us what you think about our list!

Episode 218 - The Zelda Timeline, Demise Returning, Unbreakable Weapons and More Questions Answered

Episode 218 - The Zelda Timeline, Demise Returning, Unbreakable Weapons and More Questions Answered

June 27, 2022

After a week off sick, the gang are back together to answer your fan submitted questions! We asked you to head to Twitter and give us questions, and you delivered big time! Has the fervor around the Zelda timeline died out in recent years? Is there any way the corpse shown in the sequel trailer is Demise? Are the days of new, top down Zelda games over? What’s a way to mix breakable weapons and classic Zelda items? What were the biggest lessons Breath of the Wild taught Nintendo about what fans want out of Zelda? Is a Zelda Shrine maker more practical than a Zelda Dungeon maker?

All this and so much more, PLUS some Covid stories, real world talk, and Nintendo Direct chatter. Come hang with us!

Episode 217 - Our Best Ideas For A Zelda/Metroid Crossover!

Episode 217 - Our Best Ideas For A Zelda/Metroid Crossover!

June 20, 2022

Unfortunately, Andy and Al both managed to come down with Covid, so they weren't able to record a new show this week, but fret not! We didn't want to leave anyone hanging, so we dug into the Omega Metroid Podcast archives for a never-heard-before episode featuring Andy and Zelda Dungeon's own Rod Lloyd breaking down what they would want to see in a potential crossover between the two Nintendo franchises!

Be sure to tune in next week as we get back on schedule and answer all of your Twitter questions! For more Metroid podcast content, make sure to head over to Omega Metroid!

Episode 216 - Zelda’s Percentages: What Are The Odds Of These Statements Coming True?

Episode 216 - Zelda’s Percentages: What Are The Odds Of These Statements Coming True?

June 13, 2022

Good day, good day, and welcome to yet another show where we still don't know anything about Breath of the Wild 2 or when the next Nintendo Direct might be. It's not all bad news though, as this week, we participated in Linktober's Zelda Creator Con and had a really fun show, debuting a new segment called Zelda's Percentages. The premise is simple: we read a statement and then assign a percentage on the likelihood of it coming true or not! Does the sequel sell less than half of the original Breath of the Wild? Is there any way that corpse isn't Ganondorf? Is Zelda next in line for a movie? Are we paying full price each for The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD?

All this and more, plus a little movie talk! Come and hang out with us on this rainy Monday!

Episode 215 - Breath of the Wild 2 Will Finally Be Fully Revealed and Other Nintendo Direct Predictions!

Episode 215 - Breath of the Wild 2 Will Finally Be Fully Revealed and Other Nintendo Direct Predictions!

June 6, 2022

Welcome to the Zelda Cast! This week, we are laying down some heavy predictions for the as-of-yet unannounced Nintendo Direct that we're presuming will slot in the usual E3 time frame (if E3 was happening this year, that is). Andy and Al argue about whether or not it's finally time for Nintendo to pull the lid back on Breath of the Wild 2 and completely show us what this game is all about, plus, have differing opinions as to if any ports of classic Zelda games will get revealed or not. Plus, is it finally time to get a glance at Metroid Prime 4? How about the long rumored Super Mario Odyssey 2? And what kind of presence will Mario Kart have? New courses only, or maybe more?

All this, PLUS predictions about Donkey Kong Country, Xenoblade, Advance Wars, My Time in Portia, Goldeneye, and more! Let us know what you think of our predictions on Twitter and who you think will come out on top!

The Champions’ Cast Is Getting A New Name: The Zelda Cast!

The Champions’ Cast Is Getting A New Name: The Zelda Cast!

June 3, 2022

To everyone that's been following the Zelda Dungeon podcast for the last four an a half years, we've got some news for you: the podcast will be undergoing a name change! Four and a half years ago when I decided I wanted to revive the Zelda Informer Podcast (that's going waaay back!), the hip and happening thing in the Zelda world was The Champions' Ballad, the last piece of downloadable content for Breath of the Wild. Wanting to play on that name, The Champions' Cast was born! For over four years, we've podcasted weekly about all things Zelda, from Breath of the Wild to Ocarina of Time to Wand of Gamelon to Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland to literally anything even kind of associated with The Legend of Zelda. With that in mind, we thought it was fitting that with the upcoming Breath of the Wild 2 around the corner, we establish a name that better represents what our show is all about: The Zelda Cast!

So what does this mean for longtime listeners of the show? Are there any earth shattering changes you should expect? In a word: nope! All that will change is the name and the logo of the show (which I have to admit, I've wanted to do for a while. I love me some blue, but when I think Zelda, I think the color green. Is that just me?). You'll still get weekly episodes, you'll still hear Al and I on our grind every week, you'll still have episodes download automatically if you're subscribed. There's no change!

One new thing is that the podcast is now on Twitter! We plan on having lots of show clips and other discussion points, so make sure to give us a follow: @TheZeldaCast. We're also planning on live streaming EVERY SHOW on Twitch going forward, @TheZeldaCast, so make sure you're following to check out the podcast in real time! Furthermore, new merch will be available soon!

Check out all of our existing social media and podcast channels and make sure you're following and subscribing (you can even advertise on the show!). Thank you for all the support and we can't wait to keep bringing you weekly Zelda content!

Episode 214 - Would A Playable Princess Zelda Make Breath of the Wild 2 Worth The Wait?

Episode 214 - Would A Playable Princess Zelda Make Breath of the Wild 2 Worth The Wait?

May 30, 2022

Recently, we ran a staff feature asking our writing staff what one specific thing Breath of the Wild 2 could do that would make the 6 year development time worth the wait. Answers varied from having a playable Princess Zelda to introducing a Dark World to featuring underwater exploration to an emphasis on Malice and its origins and much, much more, so this week, Andy and Al dissect each answer and react and give their own analysis on how likely our staffs wishes are.

Come hang out with us, as we're also talking Star Wars, Stranger Things, Avatar, and a big announcement coming in a few weeks!

Episode 213 - Tri Force Heroes Q&A: Is This The Worst Zelda Game and More Questions Answered

Episode 213 - Tri Force Heroes Q&A: Is This The Worst Zelda Game and More Questions Answered

May 23, 2022

If you've listened to the Champions' Cast even a little, you probably know that The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is Andy's least favorite Zelda game, so this week, we asked YOU to send us questions about the 3DS title for us to unpack. In addition to explaining why Andy thinks Tri Force Heroes is a bad Zelda game, the gang answer questions like what did they think of the totem mechanic, what their favorite outfit from the game was, if Lady Maud is an underrated villain, what their opinion on the music is, what could have been improved in the online play, and thoughts on playing solo versus with friends.

You won't want to miss this show, as we cover all this PLUS weigh in on the Mysplaced / Link's Awakening controversy. Come enjoy a holiday Monday (well, for us Canadians anyway!) with us!
