Space World Zelda lives!!


| Comments (8) | Views (220)

Dating back to Nintendo's Space World 2000 demo reel, a brand new Legend of Zelda was revealed today for Gamecube at Nintendo's pre-E3 press conference. The latest installment won't be due out until next year, but from the looks of what was shown today it is well along in development and looks absolutely gorgeous! Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo's legendary game designer and creator of the Zelda series, had this to say of the game:

"Even after 18 years, the Legend of Zelda never stops changing and this game is no different. We are now taking you to a world where Link has grown up—a world where he will act different and look different. In order to grow, Link must not stand still and neither can I. Thank you and goodbye."

Caution: viewing the trailer may cause goosebumps, tears and uncontrollable fits of giddiness. Click.

My jaw dropped as soon as I saw that news and looked at the pictures and video. :-)

Honestly, I giggled and cried simultaneously when I first saw the news and video: It had been a very long time since the SpaceWorld 2000 demo video showed promises of what Gamecube could deliver. And then in an instant, it was like being reunited with a long lost love previously thought to have been lost forever. Kudos to Nintendo for delivering what many fans want most.

This is gonna be a very long year-in-waiting. But with amazing games on the Horizon like Metroid Prime 2, Doom 3, Half-Life 2, GT4, Halo 2, Fable, Paper Mario 2, RE4... whew, the rest of this year is gonna be crazy!

I guess my point here, Ben, is that the 'Space World Zelda' that everyone fell in love with back in 2000, the one with a more realistic Link, was not discarded as a mere tech-demo for the Gamecube: it is, in fact, Twilight Princess.

Too right it's Twilight Princess! And still well worth commenting on, almost a decade later. Wow... *fangirl hearts for eyes* Even years after it came out, I still think of this game with amazement. The graphics! The story! The characters' facial expressions! Princess Zelda wielding a sword!!! (If that still needs spoiler tags after this long, I'm sorry. =P)

And, of course, Midna. Snark+charm+mystery+monster-kickery = yeah.

*happy sigh*
