Gunman Clive developer Bertil Hörberg has revealed to Siliconera that he’s working on a The Legend of Zelda-inspired game for the Nintendo 3DS. According to Hörberg, the game is still very early in development and uses a top-down perspective with 3D graphics. Hörberg says he thinks that players will inevitably make comparisons between his game and Nintendo’s upcoming spiritual successor to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
It’s still very early in development and a lot of the design isn’t finalized, but it’s very heavily inspired by the early Zelda games; it uses a topdown perspective with 3D graphics and it’s for the 3DS. The artstyle is fairly different from the new Zelda but has some influences from [A Link to the Past] as well, so yes I think comparisons will certainly be made [to A Link to the Past 2].
I think most players realize that my resources are rather more limited though and I wouldn’t presume to be in direct competition with Nintendo. I just hope people will be up for a bit more old-school action adventure gameplay regardless.
The recently announced Zelda game for Nintendo 3DS, which takes place in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, has been in the works for over a year. Series producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that Nintendo developers have been thinking about the concept of restructuring a 2D Zelda into 3D since 2011. The new Zelda game is scheduled to launch this holiday season.
Ever wondered if somebody from somewhere would make a documentary about how The Legend of Zelda became the legend in so many people’s hearts? Well, it’s en route to Hyrule and potential victory, but it needs fans of the game to help it along the way, and you can do that on its official Kickstarter page.
The fan documentary aptly titled, ‘It’s Dangerous To Go Alone: The Movie’ is hoping to reach a $50,000 goal before June 1, and will follow a narrative-based story exploring the depth of the games’ influence. To give backers a little incentive, if you pledge between $5 and $5,000 you will receive a generous Hyrule ‘care package’ equal to the amount you’ve donated, getting better and more exclusive the larger the amount given. The filmmakers have already started production for the documentary and are expecting it to have a December release.
Earlier today, during its Nintendo Direct online presentation, Nintendo revealed a brand-new game in The Legend of Zelda series. The game will be set in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and it is not a remake of the SNES title. Furthermore, Nintendo has confirmed that the upcoming game is being developed by series producer Eiji Aonuma and his team at Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development (EAD). The untitled game will be released exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
During today’s Nintendo Direct online presentation, Nintendo revealed a brand-new The Legend of Zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS. The upcoming game currently has no official title, but it will take place “in the world from A Link to the Past,” and it will arrive this holiday season, exclusively for Nintendo’s latest handheld console.
Ever fancied seeing Princess Zelda in her own hit game title? Well, this fan-inspired concept art by comic creator Aaron Diaz might just push all your Hyrule Hystoria buttons. Zelda takes on the role of Link, and Link looks very stately in his royal garments as Prince – though, a little sheepish. It even stars Ganondorf, chief advisor to the throne, though maybe this time he will refrain from riding into the distance with the prince.
The Legend of Zelda: Clockwork Empire is set in the tranquil Seline Mountains, where the Calatian Empire resides in blissful peace, and takes place 2,000 years after the events of Twilight Princess. You play as the protagonist Zelda, set out to save Prince Link, and destroy enemies with a variety of weapons, including a magical gauntlet which allows her to levitate objects from elemental power. As always, there are a number of different outfits to attain; you can disguise yourself as an airship captain, or dress yourself in the Sheika nomad robes and go in for a quick and quiet stealth kill. Should Nintendo take the hint and make a game where you get to play as Zelda?
Will Turnbow and his wife made a The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword-themed birthday cake for their daughter’s tenth birthday. The amazing cake, which can be seen in the video above, features Skyloft, the Sealed Grounds, the Faron Woods and several characters, including Link, Zelda, Groose, Ghirahim and Scrapper. Who wouldn’t want such a grand and detailed cake?
The Temple entrance is 6 batches of Rice Krispies and the backside of the temple is 9 cakes stacked as high as we could make it. The small tower on either side are styrofoam wrapped with fondant. My wife made and painted all of the characters out of clay except for Link (I was able to use my Figma Link). My wife sewed 25 green Link hats as party favors. The girls seemed to like them, we did get our daughter a blue hat for the party from Etsy as we liked the design even though it is more of a LOZTP style.
Head of U.K. studio at Konami Digital Entertainment and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series producer David Cox says he would love to work on a The Legend of Zelda game. Cox told n1ntendo that, if he was given the opportunity, he’d make a Zelda game that’s more like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, rather than like any other installment in the series, as he says he really enjoys the Nintendo 64 classic. Would you like to play a Zelda game developed by Cox and his team?
“That’s a question, haha. I’m a massive fan of Zelda, so would I like to work on a Zelda-game…I’d love to work on a Zelda-game, that’d be amazing. How would I change it? I don’t really know. I mean, I think I would make it more like Ocarina of Time, because that’s the kind of Zelda-game I really, really like. You know, the wonder of exploring that whole world that felt like a cohesive whole…it all felt like it belonged together. So I think that would be something I’d love to do. That’s quite a difficult question to answer, but if Iwata-san is listening: I’d love to work on Zelda.”
