Aonuma also debuted a new trailer for A Link Between Worlds at the con.

The original GameCube release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was a wonderful-looking title that aged well thanks to its then-polarizing art style, but odds are good that nostalgia has clouded how many remember what the game really looked like.

With the HD remake set to come out this October, people can finally play The Wind Waker as clearly and vividly as they remembered!

New York’s Nintendo World Store is Getting A Legend of Zelda Mosaic

January 09th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Nintendo’s working on a giant Zelda photo mosaic to go on display in the Nintendo World Store in New York and they want your pictures.

In addition to possibly being part of the mosaic, participants will be entered into a raffle to win a replica Master Sword and Hylian Shield.

For the violent lot of you, if you’re only interested in the weapons, a photo isn’t required for entry into the sword and shield raffle. However, it is necessary if you want to be part of the store mosaic. Naturally.

Development On the Next Zelda Game Is Already Underway

January 09th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

According to Eiji Aonuma, work has already begun on the next Legend of Zelda game.

The announcement comes from a fan translation of a message by the Zelda producer in Hyrule Historia (via GlitterBerri):

“The long sailing time of creating Skyward Sword, a game to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series, has just come to an end. The voices of those who’ve played it from around the world reach us. We hear their admiration, comments and their criticism too. All those voices become energy for the next voyage. Well, to tell the truth, we’ve already set sail in a new voyage.”

Aonuma doesn’t state what that project may be. It could be the unnamed Wii U Zelda title, or it could be a still-unannounced project. Maybe a new 3DS Zelda?

Any guesses?

Zac Gorman Creates The True Zelda Timeline

January 02nd, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

If you’ve been racking your brain trying to figure out where the Philips CD-i Zelda games and Saturday morning Legend of Zelda cartoon show fit in the greater series timeline, The Legend of Zelda timeline V2.0 by  Zac Gorman (of the awesome Magical Game Time) will put your mind at ease.

We should all be glad that the Princess did excuse Link. While having Link become a breakfast cereal would be delicious, I’d much rather live in a world where we have Link’s Awakening.

Miyamoto: Zelda Collaboration with Retro Studios Is A Possibility

December 13th, 2011 | Category: Uncategorized

Wired’s interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, the one in which he was misunderstood as saying he would be retiring, is now up in its entirety.

The iconic game creator touches on the company’s shift towards appealing to the “core” gamers, the Wii U and his changing role at Nintendo. However, while speaking about working with Retro Studios on Mario Kart 7, the Super Mario creator mentioned that the company is open to letting the western developer work with the Zelda series.

“As you know, we have already collaborated with Retro for the Metroid Prime series in the past,” Miyamoto told Wired. “And I think when we talk about any other franchise, Zelda might be a possible franchise for that collaboration.”

Retro has definitely proven they are capable of taking care of Nintendo’s franchises. Donkey Kong Country Returns and the Metroid Prime series were well received by the public and critics. It’s interesting to imagine what they could do with the Zelda universe.
