New Release for The Legend of Zelda in 2009?

authorMark | December 29, 2008

Last week, a post on started a buzz across the net about a possible new The Legend of Zelda release sometime next year. In an interview with Lazard Capital Markets’ Colin Sebastian, he states that new releases will help push modest industry growth next year, and one could possibly be the next installment of The Legend of Zelda. Although he admits it is pure speculation at this point, the timing makes sense and would give Nintendo a huuuuuuge boost in game sales in a difficult economic year.

“With this year’s release of Wii installments for Super Smash Bros., Animal Crossing, and Mario Kart, there are few cherished Nintendo series in need of a new-generation debut. That means it’s about time for the publisher to start a second lap of its greatest hits, and if one industry analyst’s prognostication is accurate, leading off that lap could be a second installment of The Legend of Zelda.”

Santa, if I promise to start being good now, can you put me on the preorder list? ;-)

My Wii News Triforce: What we want to see in the next Zelda game

authorLukatoll | July 25, 2008

I think that it’s safe to say, for the majority of Nintendo fanboys (like myself), The Legend of Zelda is their favorite Nintendo franchise. We love this series so much because it hasn’t been “just another game,” but rather a ground-breaking franchise that has shaped the world of gaming itself. Designed and developed by Shigeru Miyamoto and the team at Nintendo, the Zelda series takes gamers into the land of Hyrule where you are given the task to save Princess Zelda and your beloved homeland from the evil ruler known as Ganon. With the Triforce power of courage by your side, you make your way through epic dungeons ranging from gloomy forests, to the heart of a volcano, and even the depths of the sea. The formula is perfect and the story is inspiring so the game leaves us always longing for more.

How do you top perfection? That’s what we have been asking ourselves about this nearly perfect series we all know and love. Which is why we have a new segment for the site called My Wii News Triforce in dedication to this masterpiece of game that Miyamoto has created. Roughly each week, expect three of us to give you a little piece of our minds in a couple of short paragraphs, letting you guys know what we think about the games that we love and can’t wait to love. The answers vary depending on the topic, this one centering around the next Zelda title to grace the Wii.  Triforce, go!
