New Gamecube Zelda screens blow in on the wind
24th Dec 2002 | 00:00
Still luxuriating in the warmth of our exclusive hands-on preview? Want more? Luckily we've lined up a raft of brand new screenies for you to gaze lovingly over like a serial celebrity stalker gazing at his enshrined collection of Holby City cast photos.
The Wind Waker, in case you've been lying in some kind of catatonic stupor for the last two years, or are a moron or something, is just the latest reason to proclaim Nintendo as the single greatest thing in the world. Cel shaded role-playing goodness of a calibre that most western fantasy merchants can only dream about. When they're not crying following the realisation of a wasted life, that is.
The latest entry into the mighty Legend Of Zelda canon takes a young, wide-eyed Link on a journey of discovery in a world of mystery. Probably. We don't read Japanese and our translation bod is yet to make it home from the pub. The Wind Waker could be about Link's epic struggle to find a recipie for a killer Lamb Bhuna for all we know.
Nonetheless, we're firmly looking forward to Q2 (as the marketing men would have it - 'spring/summer' to you and I) when our GameCubes should be overheating from constant play of what will surely be the greatest game of all time since the last one. Until then, it's screenshots, movie clips and unsubstantiated rumours about Link being the illegitimate love child of Princess Peach and Frodo Baggins all the way I'm afraid.
