Re-Examining Zelda: Twilight Princess

Playing it safe, or changing the game?

You can tell a lot about a game from its opening scene. In the first few minutes of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time we're shown a sweeping, first-person view of the Kokiri Forest, as Navi flies frantically to awake a hero-to-be. In Zelda: The Wind Waker we're shown, in a beautifully minimalist art style, an...

You Must Finish Ocarina of Time 3D to Take On the Master Quest

Locked in the box

Expecting to pick up Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and rush straight into the Master Quest mode? Hold your horses, as the harder difficulty won't be available from the start. Players must finish the regular quest before being able to take on the tougher enemies, dungeons and puzzles of the Master Quest mode, which will either delight or frustrate those intending to pick up..

Get Another Taste of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D with This Video

Like Young Link, it's only short

This game needs no introduction, and it's unlikely many are on the fence about it: you've either already pre-ordered it and put aside the funds, or aren't buying it on principle. Whichever way you swing, the video below shows how the game's shaping up now it's just over a month away. The video shows Sheik, Ganondorf, Zelda and plenty of other staple characters, both..

Miyamoto: A Link to the Past Could be Reworked for the 3DS

Hyrule just looks too good in 3D

Deciding which old classics get the 3DS treatment is probably a more difficult task than we as consumers can imagine. Luckily, we have designers like Shigeru Miyamoto who seem to have a pretty clear idea on what might and might not work. Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, Miyamoto explained why The Legend of Zelda:...

Come On In for Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D's Intro Movie

Welcome back, old friend

As the saying goes, "if it's not broken, don't fix it", which seems to be the thinking at Grezzo Co. judging from the introductory video to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, embedded below.

Another Zelda Remake for 3DS?

Miyamoto's 3DS Zelda kick continues

It seems that the upcoming release of Ocarina of Time might not be the only Legend of Zelda remake we see appearing on 3DS, at least not if Nintendo's head game guru has anything to do with it. In a recent conversation with Edge magazine, Miyamoto talked about Nintendo finally getting back to game development after spending a significant amount of time creating..

Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D's European Box Art is Simply Beautiful

Beats the gold standard

We thought the golden cover art for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D in North America was good, but this artwork for the European version trumps it. Showing Link and Epona on one of many gallops across Hyrule, it may not be quite as classy as North America's cover but it's certainly more colourful. Check out that attention...

An acquired taste

Way back when Nintendo was putting the finishing touches to Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on GameCube, there were plans for a limited edition controller to accompany the little box's swansong.

Link reaches a quarter-century old

Last year, Nintendo's tubby mascot celebrated his 25th anniversary in the form of Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition, a collection that disappointed some in its paucity of interesting content.

It's been a while since we heard anything concrete about the highly awaited The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Link to the future

Earlier today we brought you a list of five Nintendo games to thrill you in 2011, but one big name was absent: Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, as it wasn't really fair to put arguably this year's biggest title against anything else. Link's previous adventure on Wii, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, was never developed with Wii in mind, having been designed as GameCube's..
