New gameplay video of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Zelda: Twilight Princess As you’ll know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, I’m really looking forward to the next major Zelda game Twilight Princess, which is basically the spiritual sequel to the Nintendo 64’s amazing Ocarina of Time in that it has a realistic, fantastical tone as opposed to a cel-shaded, piratey one.

So when a new gameplay montage video hits IGN, I’m obligated to share it with you. While IGN does have quite a few videos of Twilight Princess already, few of them are particularly interesting and generally consist of showing off the fishing sub-games and whatnot. But this is an all-out compilation of various gameplay scenes, and a lot of it looks absolutely superb.

I’m also really amazed by how visually rich this game is. It’s a real reminder of how even though the Wii will not have hardware on par with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, its games can still look pretty damn sweet. And don’t forget that Twilight Princess was largely designed for the GameCube, so Wii games could easily look better than this considering it has better hardware (even if not the kind of jump the Xbox and PlayStation 2 made).

I highly recommend watching the video since it really is very good. All signs are pointing towards this game being on a similar level to Ocarina of Time, and if it manages to beat it then we’ve seriously got a new candidate for the “Best Game Ever” title. It being a great game is almost inevitable considering it is a full-on Zelda title, but the Ocarina of Time set a massively high marker to reach. Here’s hoping Nintendo will do themselves proud.
