Which villain are you most excited to play as?

Ganondorf
Zant
Ghirahim

 

First of all, a big thank you to axumblade for his authorization.

Second of all, welcome to the official Legend of Zelda thread. I know that official threads traditionally cover platforms or companies, but I think that there are enough fans of Zelda on this site to warrant an official conversation.

I will do my best to post news, previews, rumors, and any other media that pops up about The Legend of Zelda. And I encourage anyone else to do the same.

Post anything here that is related to Zelda:

1) Game reviews
2) Strategies and hints
3) Rumors and hypotheses
4) "Best of" lists
5) The latests news from Nintendo
6) Your own Zelda artwork, etc.

Welcome to the thread!

Note: news of the week will always appear in the second post in this thread, just below this post.

Ganon playable in Hyrule Warriors!

 

New adventure mode!

Other news:

Zant (Twilight Princess), Midna (Twilight Princess), and Ghirahim (Skyward Sword) are confirmed to be playable characters. Lana, a sorceress, has been introduced as a character unique to Hyrule Warriors. She fights using a book of sorcery and is described as a "key character to the story."

Chain Chomp, who originated from the Mario universe, will appear in Hyrule Warriors as a weapon.

Hyrule Warriors will include a badge crafting system, which can help to increase a characters statistics. Crafting uses items which are dropped by enemies.

Adventure Mode will be available. It will be set up like the classic 8-bit Zelda top-down style map. Each square that the player steps into initiates a challenge to be played out in the combat style of Hyrule Warriors. For example, kill five million enemies in 30 seconds. As each grid is completed new grids open, allowing players to unlock new weapons, items, and characters. It described as "a bit similar to classic Zelda games."

Gold Skulltulas are back for players to collect.

To close off the presentation, Ganandorf has been revealed as a playable character. Preorder bonuses are also shown, which include costumes for select characters. No mention of whether these will be available outside of North America.

 

Here's the full broadcast:



This is really good news, and a great thread! Thanks. I will be coming back in here quite often.

Nintendo Network ID Sasso13 - ADD ME!!! 3DS code: 3480-3117-6001 name SassoBet made with ninjablade on the 23rd Jan. 2013: If Wii U will not sell 25 mil units WW lt HE WILL HAVE FULL CONTROL OF MY SIGNATURE AND AVATAR for A MONTH!

I don't have any artwork, but I did make a half-assed wooden Master Sword. I'll have to take a picture of it and post it here. Even though it's shoddy and unfinished and nicked up from using it as a prop sword in a spoof movie. I'll never finish it, but I keep it around because it's kind of cool in it's own way.

Hm, I'm having problem embedding two videos from Gametrailers I think every Zelda Fan would find interesting. One is about the Zelda Timeline and the other is a bit older where they talk about all the games that had been released up to that point... Oh well, I guess I'll just post the links here until I figure out how to do it properly...

Timeline explained: http://www.gametrailers.com/full-episodes/en597n/timeline-the-legend-of-zelda

Enjoy!!!



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I just bought Hyrule Historia from Amazon today, will arrive Feb 21 at the latest. Cant wait for LoZ:WW HD, will be my dirst time with WW =)

My Hyrule Historia arrives today, and I'd love to see remakes of both Majora's Mask and the original Legend of Zelda. I really think a modern Zelda following the same principles as the original would work brilliantly on Wii U. Easier inventory management thanks to the Gamepad, huge open world thanks to the more powerful hardware, and finally, a return to the kind of subtle secrets you see in the original. Miyamoto wanted people to talk about Zelda, to ask people if they've found this or that secret, or where can I get this item, or how do I beat this boss. Miiverse is perfect for that kind of design and community interaction, and will level the playing field for those that want the help, while the purists can march on and discover the secrets themselves.

predict! / Can 3DS outsell PSP? / Does Vita have better 3rd-party support in 2014 than 3DS?

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Bet with Lawlight: How many PS3 will Sony ship over 2013. He wins if that are more than 11 million, I win if it are less.
