A Link Between WorldsHello, everyone!

As you may have noticed, it has been a bit of time since our site owner came on and promised some updates. Fortunately, I can inform you that the wait is almost over! I’m Will, a new administrator here. Because of our owner’s busyness, I will be handling most of the site operations and updates and working with the new staff.

New staff? Yes, that is correct! There are three new staff members who have been on the handle for a while and will finally get to show their stuff. I would like to introduce you to Blake, Sarah J. (SJ) and Teddy. The first two are signed up to be content writers and will be communicating with our users. The last chap, Teddy isn’t quite as young as the other two. He’s been an avid player of The Legend of Zelda since the original release. I met him at a gaming convention and when I found out that he has deep passion for the top down Zelda games I told him about Zelda in my Pocket. he was eager to join our project and hopes to write some new walkthrus for old games!

To be honest, it will probably be a short while before a lot of really rich stuff starts showing up here. We plan to redesign the website in the coming month or so which will take some time. We are hoping to have everything ready to go by the time “A Link Between Worlds” is released. We will have some new content up very soon, If you’re interested in helping us out hang tight: we’ll be posting a NEW contact address for you to use soon!

We will also return to covering Zelda related news updates, so keep your eyes peeled!

Over the last year, there have been many plans, projects, cancellations, sales, etc. The most recent news was posted here over six months ago, and still nothing has been seen by the public eye.

Until now. To back up a little, this website’s been passing around like a hot potato. A lot of individuals have wanted to get involved with it, and a lot of them have back out, in, around, and some have even done the hokey-pokey. All of that aside, I’m really not sure of everywhere Zelda in my Pocket’s been, but I do know where it’s going.

I suppose I should introduce myself; I’m David. I’m a friend of Hylie’s from back in the day, and have been a supporter/follower of the site since its inception. To keep it short, even in light of a long and weird process, I’m now the owner of Zelda in my Pocket. I could almost write a book on the involvement of this site over the last year, and I’m sure the others could write quite a bit more from before that. But let’s be honest. This is a website; not a significant historical event. You probably don’t care. So I’ll cut to the chase.

I’m going to tidy up this website, both graphically and content-wise. A mild redesign may be in order. I’ll let the readers decide that. Regardless, I plan to restore this site to its former potential glory. Let’s get this train back on the track first, and work out the details later. Zelda in my Pocket has deep roots in the Zelda community, and still (surprisingly) has a strong fanbase. The amount of users and traffic here hasn’t really decreased at all, which is impressive in and of itself.

I’m busy, so I’m not going to throw out a bogus timetable. I’ll try to start work here soon, but no guarantee. I do need some help with the site, so if you’re interested in helping with some game guides, or especially adding pictures and organizing the ones we already have, then please let me know in the comments section on this post.

Thanks is you actually read this. It means a lot to still have support from past ZimP users. More updates to follow.

Blessings to all,

David

Hello, Zelda in my Pocket fans! This is just a brief update to let you know that we’re planning on releasing some new content come this New Year!

At this point, all of the staff past staff members have dispersed, and no word has been heard even though attempt at contact has been made. As of now, it will probably just be “me” handling some of the work, but once that’s been finished, I plan on selling this website. As you may know, there’s a lot of content which has been never been published, and I’m working on getting some of that up, and cleaning up the design/layout. As such, we will not be accepting any applications at this time. (As if we’ve had any requests during our hiatus.)

The website will probably be auctioned off, and I plan to start the bidding at $2,000 USD. The sale of Zelda in my Pocket will only be made to those planning on continuing the theme, and who have a genuine interest in the Legend of Zelda handheld series. If you’re interested in buying, please contact me by writing to maktesh[at]hotmail.com.

We’re also discontinuing all of our affiliations at this time (besides Kirameki), and want to inform all of our affiliates that they no longer need to be linking to us.

Finally, the Kakashi project is 100% dead. All of the files will be given to the buyer of ZimP, or sold to anyone who makes an acceptable offer. (Try ~$50)

Thank you for your continued support, and I look forward to both exiting ZimP’s hiatus and passing on the torch.

Hey, guys. Long time no see, right? Well, the launch of OoT: 3DS is creeping closer and closer, and there’s more screenshot goodness to go around.
Fighting a skulltula
Fighting Phantom Ganon
Fighting Stalfos in the Forest Temple
Catching a fish in the Lake Hylia fishing pond

These are just a few screenshots. I’m certainly excited (or rather I would be if not for the 3DS’s ridiculous ToS agreement, which is another story entirely) and I know you all are, too. We have less than one month to go with the game making its debut on June 19. Rest assured that content will follow its release as promptly as possible.

Legend of Zelda EasterHello, everyone. I, Maktesh, just wanted to leave a quick post and assure you that we are still here (albeit gone for nearly four months). We’re currently working on updating this website, and will be moving forward early this summer. I hesitate to use the term “relaunch”, but that’s essentially what will be happening. At this point, most of the site staff members have departed, not just this website, but the Zelda community in general. People grow and/or get too busy. It happens. Regardless, we’ll be doing some slight redesign work, finishing up our content (mostly with a media focus), and talk about collecting more staff members in the near future.

On the topic of staff, I apologize to all who have applied for a position over the last few months. Although we responded personally with this, we want to let everyone know that it’s nothing personal, and at this point, has nothing to do with any sort of skill level (or lack thereof). We’re simply on hiatus, and are not taking any applications.

Also, I want personally apologize to our affiliates. We have not been active, and have been removed from many of their lists. We will attempt to rebuild a friendship with you when we are able to make this site self-sufficient. On that topic, this site is actually doing very well. We’ve only slightly dropped in viewership over the last few months, meaning that you all appreciate our content enough to keep coming back, even when there’s nothing new. Thank you all!

On a final note, the remaining staff at Zelda in my Pocket (I’ll be blunt; There really may only be two or three of us at this point) would like to wish you a happy Easter Sunday. At Zelda in my Pocket, we will recognize this holiday due to it’s special importance of celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Regards,

Maktesh
