Watch the batshit insane reveal of Zelda: Twilight Princess from E3 2004

Monday, 30th November 2009 16:05 GMT By Johnny Cullen


After the break. It’s a video of the reveal of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess from E3 2004.

It’s Reggie’s first E3, and where the DS was first revealed as well. Of course, this was almost certainly the highlight. Even Miyamoto comes out at the end.

Imagine, this is going to be what it’s going to be like next June when the new Zelda for the Wii is revealed. Maybe.

Go. Watch.

    I remember that trailer. I remember how that music wasnt actually in the final game, actually not a single track was orchestrated in the end.
    But yeah, that trailer made it look stunning. Shame it wasnt all that good in the end.

    Why are you posting this anyway?

    “Why are you posting this anyway?”

    Why not? It’s a fun trip down memory lane.

    “oh the glory days! You know, when Nintendo made proper games for proper gamers…”

    You mean games like New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Metroid: Another M, Super Mario Galaxy 2, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Golden Sun DS, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon?

    You mean *those* proper games for proper gamers? You know, the ones they’re still making?

    Labelling an article about E3 2004 ‘HOT’ is taking the piss, no?

    You need a new label for the increasing number of filler stories recently.. ‘WEAK’.

    Anxiously awaiting to see what Nintendo’s next system will be and passing on the Wii as not interested

    Although if ANY game was going to make me cave in and buy one, it would definitley be Zelda…(but it would have to be as good or better than TP and WW – both which I thought were fantastic).

    Wasn’t the TP trailer a surprise announcement? I seem to recall that’s why everyone went crazy. If everyone knows about the new trailer I don’t expect there to be as much shock from the audience.

    i remember this game was supposed to be for GC which i already owned then Nintendo decided they release a few copies that you could buy for GC only by pre-ordering by them so they could sell it along with Wii.Limited copies for GC,unlimited for Wii
    This was so lame on their behalf
