Soon after one Zelda marathon ends, another begins. Just a couple of days ago, Zelda Dungeon and its partner site, Zelda Informer, kicked off its own trek through the series. In an effort to raise money for Child’s Play charity, the gang is playing through virtually every Zelda game — CDI games included. As of this posting, they’re finishing up A Link Between Worlds. Be sure to follow the Twitch stream and donate to Child’s Play!
Alongside my work for Want Midna Back, I occasionally write articles for fellow fan site Zelda Dungeon. My most recent one sheds more light on my Breath of the Wild play session from this past E3. Although my first set of impressions focused almost solely on the game’s story, this one delves deeper into the world map and new mechanics. Head over to Zelda Dungeon and check it out!
Formed in 2008, TheSpeedGamers’ is a non-profit organization that periodically holds gaming marathons for various charities. Watching its 2009 Zelda marathon in particular remains one of my most memorable experiences within the Zelda fan community. Seven years later, these guys are back at it with yet another trek through Link’s adventures.
Considering all of the Zelda content that has released since TSG’s previous Zelda marathon — nearly three years ago — the gang is getting a bit more ambitious this time around. Unlike previous outings, which lasted for about 72 hours, this marathon is scheduled to run for a whole week. It just kicked off a couple of hours ago — be sure to tune in and donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Although Zelda Dungeon’s marathon is just around the corner, there’s another one to look forward to.
In an effort to not only raise money for Child’s Play Charity, but also bring the Zelda community together, our friends over at Zelda Eternity are set to host its sixth annual marathon.
The event itself won’t kick off until August 8 at 5 p.m. EDT, but the team already has a full list of the games that will be featured. Head over to Zelda Eternity to check it out.
The folks over at Zelda Dungeon are at it again. Come July 13, they’ll be marathoning through not only all of the main Zelda entries, but also a few obscure titles. All donations that are submitted during the four-day stream will go to Child’s Play.
