New Twilight, Hourglass Content [updated]

August 24th, 2006 at 11:51 am by The Missing Link

[UPDATE: Whoops! Just realised that the gameplay demo was NOT new. Sorry about that…]

The Leipzig Games Convention is taking place in Germany, and, while Nintendo has still kept their trump cards up their sleeves, they have released a bit of Zelda “news” for the fans. IGN has new screenshots (in high-res!) of Twilight Princess as well as a few screenshots and a new trailer for Phantom Hourglass. The pictures will make your mouth water, but, unfortunately, I don’t have QuickTime or Flash here at work, so I haven’t seen the Hourglass trailer yet, so you’ll have to do your own homework on that.

    I can’t really tel the difference between the High-res and the others but I’ve never had a good eye for graphics.

    My god that looks beautiful man, I believe without a doubt that this will be the single greatest 3D Zelda Game ever made.

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait, im going crazy!!!! Look at those graphics! Very Awesome!!! **faints***

    *Swoon*

    what are the graphics of TP from, the wii?

    The tp picture are not new picture I saw them a week ago on www.zelda.com

    pretty cool.are the Wii graphics similar to the GCN graphics?

    Those “new” screen shots look familiar… Good graphics for a ‘Cube port though.

    Wow, those pictures were beautiful. They just want to make me play TP more and more. And we got a look at one of Links new tools, the magnetic boots. I cant wait to see what other great stuff link is going to get.

    The graphics are identical in both games.

    I don’t know why they tease us with high-res pics lke this though. The game won’t run any higher than 640×480 on gamecube, and no higher than 852×480 (widescreen) on the Wii.

    oh okay.I thought I saw an article that said the Wiis graphics were better.

    Has that one pic with Midna and Link appeared before? Is this the first time we’ve seen Midna with Hylian Link? That, more than anything else, caught my eye.

    Miyamoto and Aonuma said that the graphics were minor changes in the Wii version, but he probably just meant widescreen. I can assure you that when you see these in the actual game they will look better. These are just the resolusion of the pictures on the Internet.

    The graphics are beautiful. It’s how I always immagined the world of Zelda to look in my head. I want to reach out and touch it! My anticipation is only building… :)

    But I’d like to play the game soon, regardless if these are the GameCube screenshots or not.

    want……twilight……………………

    Regarding the PH trailer: yeah, I noticed that, too late, though…

    I don’t know why but I haven’t really cared much about PH. Its been overshadowed by TP. H.A.M.M.E.R., Orb, and MP3.

    Just wondering, why is there no Phantom Hourglass countdown on Zelda Blog? Surely we know as much about its release date as Twilight Princess, and it is much more popular than Tingle RPG and much more relevant to Zelda than the Wii.

    I thought they just said what quarter it would be released in.

    PH isnt going to be released untill sometime next year.I think its too far away to put a counter up.

    anyways I noticed alot of interesting pictures for TP.the main one is the one with midna in the real world…that blew my theory of midna being zelda :( .

    Because:

    (1) Phantom Hourglass is going to be released AFTER all of the games on the countdown clock,
    (2) Phantom Hourglass doesn’t have anything even close to an “estimated release date”,
    (3) Phantom Hourglass doesn’t have all that much hype yet, and
    (4) Tingle is the best Zelda character in the universe.

    Yeah you better strike that, TML.
    I wish Nintendo would stop arsin’ around and give us release dates.

    Ha! As if. When has Nintendo given an accurate release date for a Zelda game without delaying it?

    huh. I was under the impression Phantom Hourglass was under a Holiday 2006 release. I guess I need to pay closer attention.

    Anyways, it’s almost September and we still don’t have a firm price and release date for the Wii (and consequently Twilight Princess). What gives Nintendo? You promised!

    Nintendo still has ’till the end of September to give us a release date. And at Leipzig this week they said they didn’t have it fully planned out yet.

    • 25. Vaa says:

    Ah, I thought they had promised to tell us by September.

    However them not having this planned out yet is worrying. I mean, this is important and all…

    I’m guessing a late November release for both then.

    i cant wait first they tell me last year tp was comin in sep. then they tell me aprail for this year then sep.im glad i know there not holdin it up again

    Well, they’re going to release it before PS3, and Thanksgiving, so they kind of have it planned out. They just haven’t figured out the exact date yet, but they know that they want to release it either in late October or early November.

    I want it in early nov. That way I get one more paycheck first.

    Whats the deal with that freaky Goron, has it been tortured and turned to evil, will we have to fight evil Hyilians and evil Zoras too?

    That would be cool. He’s probably just preparing for war or something. I want to fight him. You probably have to hit his legs.

    Seems like the Goron are like us humans, creating prosthetics, maybe it’s to protect him from dangerous jelly-like enemies (like ChuChus) and I was just thinking, that’s probably why they nearly died out, or maybe it’s for another reason. That pic of Midna and Hylian Link in the field, it’s like Midna is using psychic powers to contact Link, in her “Light World” form. Examine that picture, maybe we’ll see something interesting in it *squints at the picture* -_- Hmmmm.

    It says…
    Monkeys. Hm? Oh wait…
    All shall be revealed when… Nintendo feels like revealing it…
    Cryptic.

    I’m not impressed by PH. The graphics don’t look too good and I never liked the stylus control especially for a 3D DS game. But I’m still going to get it.

    ok,this really isn’t on this topic,but i needed sum where 2 put this!tml,update the grand adventures already!!!i’ve been w8ing for 2 1/2 months now 4 u 2 update it!!!!!what does the stupid sign say*looks up with little kid face and tears in eyes*plleeaaassseee update it!
