Nintendo at E3 2011: Zelda 25th Anniversary game news


With an orchestral accompaniment, Nintendo treated us to some classic footage of The Legend of Zelda games before showing off Skyward Sword; confirmed for released on Wii ‘this holiday season’. The new game, described as being ‘packed full of content’ and as ‘the most satisfying Zelda experience’ comes with a limited edition gold Wii remote plus.

A cracking opening to what turned out to be very interesting presentation from Nintendo at this years E3.

Presented by Shigero Miyamoto, creator of Zelda, we were told how the visuals and music have constantly evolved since the first NES Zelda game and in that the music that was played by the Orchestra is the theme tune to Skyward Sword.

Following some renditions of some classic Zelda sound effects(!) Mr Miyamoto then revealed that the Gameboy Colour version of The Legend of Zelda Links Awakening DX would be available on the newly launched 3DS eshop from today.

Then, of course, from next weekend, the 3D version Ocarina of Time is released around the world too. With ‘an improved frame rate’ and ‘better graphics’, this remake offers a greater ‘sense of realism’. A limited edition original soundtrack CD is available for the first gamers who register the game.

Finally, we were told that Legend of Zelda Four Swords will be coming as a free download for four player gaming too!

The Zelda segment ended with a big thanks; ‘The fans of Zelda are the most important. Thanks from the development and production team!’
