The Zelda 25th anniversary celebrations are in full swing now, what with the Zelda symphony London tickets on sale now, and Nintendo has just launched an official website for the shindig too.
There's a graphical depiction of how Link's design has changed over the years, along with links to all his main-series appearances to date: no Wand of Gamelon here.
Perhaps the best part of the site is the high resolution artwork available to brighten up your desktop, from classic lanky Link to his cel-shaded appearance and something from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword too.
Check out the Zelda 25th website and let us know what you think of it.
Where's the bloody Metroid 25th anniversary website? >=[
Shoot, I wanted Wand of Gamelon wallpaper.
What Godot said.
Haha, Zelda > Metroid >:3
Also, Nintendo barely recognized Zelda's anniversary when it was 25 (back in February).
What SilverBaretta said.
If they don't make a big deal about Metroid at next year's E3, I'm'a be mad. Real mad.
@Godot I look forward to reading your incensed rantings then
Where's my "Excuse me, princess!" wallpaper? For shame!
I wanted one with the king saying "I wonder what's for dinner."
@11 How about this: I big picture of the CD-I Link saying "I'm so hungry, I could eat an octorok!"
How about an official timeline for the 25th anniversary???
it is so cool....i put the link when he`s on the bird up as my wallpaper...it looks so good
Link lying next to shield + sword > Master Sword one. Those are my favourite wallpapers there.
Edit: And yes, it feels kinda strange to see that now that i'm finally in the mood for some Metroid nostalgia.
@1: Godot, I guess you have to keep waiting!
Do you think they would only make a big deal of the Nintendo 4-star anniversaries?
They're: Pokemon, Zelda, Kirby & Mario.
@13 YESSS WE MUST KNOW!!!!
@NetrackSteven64 They shouldn't.. I don't think they need to make a BIG deal out of it, but atleast show it off a little bit.
Using the Skyward Sword one, it's so pretty
Aaargh! no MA BOIH, SQUADALALA, YOU MUST DIE, DINNER AND NOT EVEN A MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM BOMBS WALPAPER! THIS SITE SUCKS! Nah, its ok.

And the Metroid 25th anniversary? Nintendo doesn´t care to support Samus Birthday.
@Everyone complaining about a Metroid anniversary: Metroid was never as popular as Zelda.
Cool, I wonder if Nintendo is doing anything for Metroid's 25th anniversary.
The wallpaper with the Master Sword is absolutely gorgeous!
I think Nintendo isn't celebrating the 25th anniversary of Metroid for two reasons...1) it isn't that popular in Japan (when compared to the US and Europe) and 2) the creator Gunpei Yokoi also created the Virtual Boy (and if I'm not mistaken, after he did so they basically did to him what they did to Milton from Office Space).
But that's just my take on the whole thing, I'm not saying it's right, the only way anyone would know is to ask someone higher up from Nintendo.
@Daisaku: Actually the failer of the the Virtual Boy didnt have anything to do with Gunpei Yokoi's departure from Nintendo. He was planning to leave Nintendo to start up his own company after the release of the Virtual Boy. In fact he went on to develop the of the Wonder Swan. So there really wasnt any bad blood between Nintendo and him so to speak.
Sadly about a year after he left Nintendo he was killed in an automobile accident.
is it just me, but if you were not in the know you might assume it is kirby's anniversary. There are going to be three kirby games released in 2011 and they have done kirby tv. The eshop has a place for videos of kirby games as well.
