Twilight Princess: The Gamecube Demo vs. The Wii Demo

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

There’s been a lot of discussion about the release of Twilight Princess for the Gamecube and the Wii. Will they be released separately? Aside from the compatibility with the Wiimote, will there be any other differences between the two versions?
After playing the Wii version of Twilight Princess at this year’s E3, though the immersive […]

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

For all who are interested (and I know all you are, why else visit ZeldaBlog?) the following link will take you to IGN’s video media page where they have posted there the full seven minute Twilight Princess demo inCLUDing the boss battle I didn’t get to play (darn you E3, darn you straight to heck).

E3 Impressions of Zelda Wii

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Given that this is my first article here at ZeldaBlog as an actual contributor I thought it’d only be fitting that I make my first post something of some significance. So when I got the opportunity to go to this years Electronics Entertainment Expo my first thoughts were to write up my impressions here at […]

The Great E3 Wrap-Up

Saturday, May 13th, 2006

So it’s the weekend! E3 is officially over, and thus begins the onerous wait for the next Zelda games as well as the Wii. It’s going to be a good haul as well; a quick look to the counter on the main page says that we have a really long way to go […]

Link Appears in Wii Smash Bros.

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

[UPDATE: IGN has some better pictures here.]
[UPDATE 2: And for the fangirls in the audience… And then for the fanboys…]
[UPDATE 3: Masamune tells me that you have to see the video. There’s one here at GameSpot that requires registration; IGN has one here that doesn’t.]
I was just over at Joystiq and happened […]

A Wii Bitty Light Gun

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

IGN has a report up on their site about a new attachment for the Wii controller–a light gun. Reminiscent of the Zapper from way back in the days of yore and the NES, this will plug into the extension part of the controller and be used in games like FPSes. There’s an analog […]

New Zelda Trailer Blow-By-Blow

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

Its been only a few hours since Nintendo’s Pre-E3 press conference and the release of the new Twilight Princess trailer, yet I figure its not too early to do a quick analysis of what the new trailer has to offer us.

This isn’t a very long trailer, but this is also the latest of several that Nintendo has offered us of the game since 2004. There have been several stylistic and interface upgrades since we last saw it. Lets get into it!

Just a note: The following post contains a lot of images. If you’re on dial-up it might be slow to load.

Official Plots for Twilight, Hourglass

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

One of the other things that Nintendo released today (and have only been rarely spotted across the web) were official documents concerning both Twilight Princess and Phantom Hourglass. Twilight’s is fairly uninteresting because we know most of it anyways, but Hourglass has a lot of details that we don’t know yet.
Twilight Princess‘ plot is […]

E3 LiveBlog: Microsoft’s Conference

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

[UPDATE: I had to put this on effective “tape delay” since the feed wasn’t available until after the MS conference, so just pretend this happened 2½ hours earlier… ]
Alright, let’s see if this works better on the third time. This time, we’re taking a look into the last competition, Microsoft. They’ve […]

Wii’s Controller Shell Revealed

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Joystiq is reporting that the controller shell for the Wii remote controller is finally confirmed. It looks very similar to a cross-breed between the SNES controller and the PS2 DualShock only with the Home button smack dab in the middle there.
This wasn’t shown at the conference today, and this is curious because I expected […]
