Zelda Producer Could Use More Crossbow Training Action

Wanted to "intensify the multiplayer" in sequel

One of the upsides of buying a Wii Zapper, besides being a nice +1 to your collection of somewhat useless bits of plastic, was getting your hands on Link's Crossbow Training. We daresay that was the only reason a lot of people bought the peripheral [cough -Ed.] as Link is as powerful an endorsement to Nintendo fans as Billy Mays is/was to home..

"Weatherman is last Aardman Flipnote" statement proves erroneous

Contrary to our earlier reports that The Weatherman was Aardman's final Flipnote creation, we've just had word about this rather cool Zelda animation from those talented Brits.
