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.

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

To cut to the chase, the price and launch date for the Nintendo 3DS was just announced. The launch date is set for March 27, 2011. The price will be $249. There will be a hefty amount of games released between the launch date and E3, not all of which have been listed. An educated guess would assume that Ocarina of Time 3DS will be included in that window.

You can watch the full video here.

I deeply apologize that we’re a bit behind the ball on this update, as we’ve all been focused on improving the website’s appearance and functionality. To get straight to the point, a new trailer for Ocarina of Time 3D has just been leaked, and we’d like to share it with those who have not already viewed it. The video is right below:

I must say that I’m extremely impressed with the visual appearance of the game. It feels so much more bright and crisp, as opposed to the original. This game is looking better and better all the time. I’m just a little wary of the estimated $300 price tag that’s rapidly approaching…

We’ve just redone some of the basic features on our current game pages. As of now, we’ve only redone small parts of the content, fixing gammrer dan spekking erroes. ..Er, grammar and spelling errors. The most notable change is the addition of the game boxes we’ve added for each of the games. You can see an example of one of them below.

Kakashi: The Search for Tingle Info Box

Also, we’re currently working on updating the content for the games we have listed. As soon as those have been finished, we’ll be adding in other titles, such as Oracle of Seasons, Oracle of Ages, Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks. Be sure to keep checking out those pages, as the character guides, walkthroughs and downloads sections will be expanding.

Finally, we’ll be reworking the home page in the coming days. There have been no final decisions regarding how it will turn out, so we would much appreciate your input in the comments section. We most likely will be moving this very blog to a different page, and creating a static page where we can have more links, images and feeds.
