The Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary E3 announcements

On top of the highly-promoted Ocarina of Time 3D for the 3DS, Nintendo has also announced that Link's Awakening will released for download on the 3DS shop this week. There will also be a Four Swords title released in September for the DSi, free of charge for anyone to download. This Four Swords, much like its predecessors, will focus on four player cooperative play. Finally, Skyward Sword will be released by the Holiday season, with a gold Wiimote available as a promotional item.

As for Skyward Sword's gameplay trailer, a fair amount of new material was revealed. We were given a look into Link's home, a land that floats in the clouds above Hyrule, as well as some brief footage of the various dungeons. It seems Link's blond-haired friend (who bears a striking resemblance to one Hylian princess) is taken by a gale of some sort, and it would also seem that one of Link's primary foes will be the white haired individual shown in much of the previous footage. The trailer highlighted a number of new enemies, which all seem to be designed with the Wiimote combat in mind. I can personally say that I am very excited to play through this Wii prequel to Ocarina of Time when it releases.
