Sometimes Nintendo's weirdness can brighten any sky and make the sun shine that bit brighter. OK, we're exaggerating a little, but it can make us smile - the concept of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes fits into this. Any plot that puts fashion at its core in Hyrule is always going to be a bit bonkers, and its randomness even prompted us to turn an E3 demo event into a daft short story.
It's a game prioritising fun above all else, then, but the latest video on Nintendo's Japanese channel to promote the game and explain its concept is delightfully quirky. The wackiness is at the start, in which the extravagant King weeps bitter tears and tells a tale in the most melodramatic style imaginable. Check it out below.
The voiceover rather reminds us of Brian Blessed, the hugely respected British actor who is also known for his humour and readily identifiable voice. He actually gave a characteristically enthusiastic voice-over for a Nintendo UK ad campaign not too long ago, for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.
In any case this writer now wants Tri Force Heroes more than ever before.
