The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

leave a comment »

Nintendo just had their E3 keynote address this morning and they finally released some details on the new upcoming Zelda. It has an official name: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The new game has a cel-shaded look. There will be some new items including a beetle which Link can send out and control like a remote control plane and whip very similar to that of the one seen in Spirit Tracks. The game will utilize Wii MotionPlus giving the player control of both the sword and the shield. Good use of the shield is something I have always wanted in a Zelda game and it’s finally here. Unfortunately, the game will not be released until 2011. Check the trailer below.

All in all the game looks solid. Nintendo seems to be focusing primarily on the game-play aspects of the new title, while not adventuring into anything new as far as graphics; I think this will disappoint many. I don’t care much, hell, I would be happy with some more Wind Waker graphics. Like I said though, it seems to be about control. As long as the controls are tight and perfected to the expectation of the millions of Zelda players out there, I think Nintendo is on the right track to putting out another solid Zelda game. The preview provided at E3 is exactly that, a preview. While many proceed to freak out about their disappointments about the limited info released thus far, I’m just gonna sit back and wait for the next installment of The Legend of Zelda expecting nothing more than a boat load of fun; cause that’s what Nintendo always delivers.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Zelda Wii announced today

leave a comment »

Like I said yesterday. I am really excited about the announcement of the newest addition to the Legend of Zelda lineup – Zelda Wii. The rumors are flowing, the potential is great, and I can just barely contain myself. Will Nintendo give us something new that strays away from the LoZ standard template or will we see prolific changes to the already legendary game? Either way, I’m just very ecstatic of the potential to be playing a new Zelda game by the end of this year.

To keep the Zelda music mood going, check out what I think is the best Zelda song that isn’t an actual original from the game. RAC puts out amazing remixes and this Zelda jam comprised of various songs from A Link To The Past is no exception. Zelda. Zelda. Zelda.

RAC – A Link To The Past (RAC Mix) <— from the Nintendo VS Sega EP. Download here.

Be sure to check back for updates about the details of the newest Zelda endeavor.

UPDATE 9:10am PST: The official name of the 2010 Zelda game is The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (via fuckyeahlink)

UPDATE 9:21am PST: The new Zelda will NOT be released in 2010. The graphics resemble Ocarina of Time with a slightly polished and cel-shaded look. A new weapon system is used. There is a whip! And a new weapons and tools.

UPDATE 9:30am PST: The new Zelda will use MotionPlus for further control of the sword. New item: The Beetle – which is released by Link and controlled by tilting controller.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
