GameCity to Transform Nottingham into Hyrule Town
Posted by James Newton
Only with more shambling undead
UK event GameCity has established itself as one of the most notable events in the gaming calendar: kicking off five years ago with a celebration of SEGA music from maestro Richard Jacques, it's since taken in Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi, zombie world record attempts and everything in between. This year it's teaming up with Nintendo as part of the ongoing Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary celebrations, turning Nottingham city centre into a Hyrulean market town for a day.
You'll be able to get your hands on Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword before release as well as create your own sword and shield, chill out at the LonLon bar and finally learn to play the ocarina like you always wanted.
Once you've mastered the mystical instrument, there'll be a mass rendition of some famous tunes from the series, with those who take part awarded with a limited edition Zelda-branded ocarina.
The event kicks off on Saturday 29th October in Nottingham. If you're going, let us know — we're bound to make an appearance.
