The Latest Zelda News

Zelda fans, rejoice! It appears that Nintendo's favourite green-capped hero will not be taking a hiatus any time soon. The re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 3DS has been out just over a month now, and now Nintendo have (finally) put their Zelda energy into celebrating Zelda's 25th anniversary which occurred a few months ago. As well as this, a new trailer has been revealed at Comic Con for the next Zelda title, Skyward Sword. Read on for more info!

The First 25th Anniversary Celebrations Are Here!
A series of Legend of Zelda: 25th anniversary symphony concerts will be taking place, with the first commencing in Los Angeles in October of this year. A full tour is scheduled to continue sometime at the beginning of 2012. Fans who caught the introduction to the Nintendo section of E3 should expect the concerts to sound just like this. Nintendo have released an official video to confirm the news, and this can be viewed below:
More details can also be found at the Zelda Symphony website.

New Skyward Sword trailer released!

Released at this week's Comic Con in San Diego, the new trailer for Skyward Sword confirms the speculation that Link's old buddies, the Gorons will be making a return in this title. Although most of the action has been seen before in the trailer revealed at E3, this new trailer displays a bit more of the flying sequences on the birds around the new fictional Zelda world, Skyloft. Also shown at a greater length is the action sequences, with a new spider boss being briefly shown.

The game promises for a greater sense of control via the motion-control WiiMote, which is great to hear, as although Twilight Princess was excellent, the controls on the Wii versions were at times a little clunky. Skyward Sword will have a lot of flying sequences-another refreshing aspect for the series, and Zelda this time around will not be a Princess.
