The eagerly-anticipated new Legend of Zelda game will be subtitled Twilight Princess and will allow Link to turn into a wolf, Nintendo revealed today at its pre-E3 press conference.
Due this Christmas on GameCube, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess casts Link as a wrangler living on the outskirts of Hyrule. The kingdom suddenly becomes enshrouded by darkness, which has the side effect of turning Link into a wolf!
We were shown a beautiful trailer of Twilight Princess, including several scenes where the wolfen Link fought enemies or solved puzzles using his vicious teeth. He will also be joined by a 'mysterious being' called Midna.
Of course, Twilight Princess will also feature an advance horseback combat system as well as the classic Zelda sword fighting. Nintendo also promises huge bosses that will have to be seen to be believed.
Best of all, Twilight Princess will be on the showfloor at E3 when the doors open tomorrow. Hands-on impressions and trailer coming soon.
