Zelda turns 25!

Nintendo revealed their concept for Zelda's 25th birthday at E3 this year, and it includes quite a few new adventures for our little green-clad friend, Link.

This year, they will be shipping a new Zelda title for each platform!

This Zelda promotion kicked off June 7,  when Link's Awakening was released for the Gameboy Color.


Nintendo's 3DS will see an enhanced Ocarina of Time.  This rendition will include many additional gameplay modes;  including the Master Quest, boss challenges, and helpful hint movies for the game's more frustrating puzzles.


In September, a new Four Swords title for the DSi will become available for FREE, and will feature the familiar 4-player co-op gameplay. 


Lastly, the Nintendo Wii will find a new Link adventure in Skyward Sword.  The game will utilize the Wii's MotionPlus system, with a revised sword-fighting and targeting design.


Nintendo, and Zelda series fans alike are sure to get their fill of adventures in celebration of 25 years of one of video game's most celebrated and well-known characters.  Nintendo promises that there is still 'more to come'.

  2. I'm going to get that new system. It looks as if though they are trying to appeal to the hardcore gamer, while Microsoft is pushing their shitty Kinect. The new Zelda looks sick.

  3. Agreed, the kinect is well over rated. I want to play a game to play it, not to see how I can react and how funny I can look and act.

  11. Weird. Ocarina of Time was probably the only Zelda I did NOT play from start to finish. Although, I was a big fan of it when I did play. Windwaker, Twilight Princess, and Four Swords were all great, though! I wish they would make some PC Zelda games.. A longshot, I know =(
