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!

Hey out there to all handheld and standard Zelda fans alike, and a happy holiday season to all of you! I am out with a new piece in anticipation of the upcoming release of the Nintendo 3DS and, more importantly to most loyal Zelda fans, the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time that will accompany it under the title of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Like many I am sure are pondering the same question, I have been quietly weighing the pros and cons of buying this new handheld system largely for my love of the Zelda series.

While that sentiment was definitely present with the release of the Wii and the concurrent release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess back in 2006, this is the first time I have really been confronted with such a scenario for a handheld system. With past Zelda releases, I was able to play most handheld Zelda games on my Gameboy Color system for a good number of years, not necessitating much of a change until the release of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap and its successors. The release of the first Nintendo DS game, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass did prompt me to finally break down and buy a DS in 2007, but by that time the DS had been out for a few years and the price had come down somewhat to where it was more economical.

Link's Awakening ArtworkWoohoo! We have some great news; The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX is to be released on the Nintendo 3DS’s Virtual Console. IN 3D. Yes, that’s right; you’ll soon be playing one of the greatest Legend of Zelda games in a 3-Dimensional world. In only five months, actually. Which leads us to some more news:

We’ve just now found out that the Nintendo 3DS will be released in North America this March. No specific date has been announced yet, but we do know just how close it is until we can play that sucker!

Now there are two thoughts that come into my mind. The first one is “how will they handle the printable photographs?”. I can see a lot coming from this, seeing as you can even take 3D photos on your 3DS. Will they bring back the GameBoy Printer? Probably not, but I imagine that Nintendo has something special in store for our little mouse photographer and his Link’s photo album. The second thought is a little more obvious; when will we see the Oracle Series and The Minish Cap? And let’s not leave it there: If they can make those games 3-Dimensional, they can do that with The Legend of Zelda, the Adventure of Link and A Link to the Past.

Boy, am I ever excited!

Ocarina of Time 3D 1Many apologies for the lack of updates, but quite frankly, we don’t like fluff, and there’s been no real news for any portable Legend of Zelda games. Until now. The biggest development we’ve seen for quite some time is finally here: More news, images and even some video footage of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has been released.

First off, I’ll start with the video. For those of you who are too lazy to watch the whole lineup, the “Zelda” segment starts at about 2:31 into the video.

I’ve got to say that, although it’s great to have the footage, five seconds doesn’t really do the game justice. Oh, well. I’m sure we’ll start to see a lot more in the near future. My guess is that Ocarina of Time 3D will be a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS. You’ll also notice that there’s a few new screenshots, as well (four in all).

Finally, we have the Japanese release date for the Nintendo 3DS. It is currently set for February 26th, 2011. That’s really not too far away, and I suspect it’ll deploy stateside around that period. European releases are usually only a few weeks later than their American and Japanese counterparts, so it’ll probably be close together around the board.

*Thanks to Zelda Universe for the news updates!

Skyward Sword LogoApologies for such an extended leave of absence and limited updates, but my school schedule has been particularly hectic this summer and is shaping up to be the same if not worse now that the fall semester has begun. However, I will be doing all I can to make time for ZimP in between the classes, homework, job, relationship and friendships / fraternity that I have going at the present time. But enough of all this about me, and back to the topic at hand: Zelda. So, when I last wrote for ZimP, we discussed the recently revealed new title for the next chapter in the series, Skyward Sword. I will elaborate more on this topic and put it into perspective from a broader view to try and trace the possibilities facing the Zelda series as a whole in the coming years. Let us then proceed to where we have left off in the series with its most recent additions.

First we have Twilight Princess, which came out in late 2006 and seemingly continued the story of the so-called “Child Timeline”, one of the two timelines created at the conclusion of Ocarina of Time in 1998. In this story, we learn that Ganondorf’s attempted coup of the Royal Family of Hyrule failed (largely thanks to the Hero of Time’s warning Princess Zelda and her father of Ganondorf’s coming attack at the end of Ocarina of Time), and he was subsequently arrested, put on trial, and sentenced to death at the infamous Arbiter’s Grounds, home to the relic known as the Mirror of Twilight.
