Nintendo has released a brand new piece of concept art for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds which features the return of one of the most prominent villains in video game history. Ganon is back for this latest installment in the Zelda franchise, sporting the same look that he did in A Link to the Past. He was officially revealed at the end of the launch trailer that was shown during today’s Nintendo Direct, but this further confirms his involvement in the game. In the trailer, eight paintings are shown swirling around in a vortex-like manner, and Ganon seemingly rises from the ashes. What does Ganon have in store for Link this time?
We know that Nintendo subsidiary Monolith Soft is working on at least two new projects – one for Nintendo 3DS and one for the Wii U console. The debut trailer for its first HD game was showcased during last month’s Wii U-focused Nintendo Direct online presentation, although it was not given an official name. The picture above, which was posted on Monolith Soft’s Facebook page, is supposedly a piece of concept art for the developer’s upcoming Nintendo 3DS game.
Yesterday Zeldac posted a huge amount of concept art for The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and today they’ve rather kindly posted some gorgeous The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker concept art. The images are taken from the Hyrule Historia which is only available to purchase in Japan. There’s a ton of images on the site, so feel free to have a look.
Nintendo released a whole batch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask concept art which is available to view in the Zelda encyclopaedia Hyrule Historia. Thankfully fan-based website Zeldac has uploaded what appears to be the vast majority of the concept images. I’ve uploaded a few, but there’s plenty more to be seen here.
