Miyamoto airs beautiful art for next Zelda

Friday, 5th June 2009 07:25 GMT By Patrick Garratt


You see. Years in the desert. The horrors of Wii Music. Funny plastic finger clips. Cammie Dunaway dying in front of a growling internet. And then Miyamoto does this.

It’s concept art for the next Zelda, which the developer hopes to announce next year. Pictures: a thousand words.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Dito on Blerk, actually. Wind Waker was as cosy as Zelda-games get.

    Make up your mind Pat – do you want Nintendo to go hardcore or not? :p

    Not enough muscles and weapons for my liking.

    I dont mind it looking ‘more adult’ as they say (i bet its uses the exact same engine as Twilight Princess for that matter) but i hope its as complete as Wind Waker. TW really was a waste of DVD.

    I find it hard to get excited over any concept art that doesn’t feature Kratos.

    For those that care, the figure that isn’t link is the master sword. Now humanoid for some reason.

    Isn’t it a bit early to get excited about this? It’s a picture of Link, like he always looks.

    uh, he doesn’t look more adult than in TP to me

    but yeah, already saw this one yesterday, quality was much worse though. Humasword looks like a Zora

    yeah I know :/
    I did get Ocarina running on an N64 emulator with no problems. Simply a case of giving the game a good go now.
    Too many good games to play though :|
