7-minute trailer for Zelda: Twilight Princess

Zelda: Twilight Princess trailer Sorry about the hiatus in updates guys. I’ve had what I can only assume is flu this week and have been coughing, sneezing, headaching and occasionally hallucinating like a git. It’s largely gone now, but the leftover headaches are still putting a damper on me. As such I’ve not felt very motivated to get through my RSS feeds and update my blog — sorry! One thing I’ll post about to get back on track though is an absolutely superb fan-made trailer for Zelda: Twilight Princess, which amounts to a whopping seven minutes of footage and is accompanied by some random movie soundtrack-like music. It does the job though!

Although the video was evidently posted in June and features quite a bit of old footage, which is in turn from the GameCube version and hasn’t enjoyed the Wii enhancements, it manages to show off a massive variety of gameplay and locations in the game that’ve been carefully chosen from the spoiler-filled demonstrations and such that most of us have avoided thus far to produce a spoiler-free but highly impressive video. The huge contrast in locales is as abundant as ever, and it certainly looks like a world that’ll be an absolute joy to explore as Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker were. Minus the sailing in Wind Waker, anyway.

This video has really added to the general feeling of excitement I have about Twilight Princess. Not only does it look visually superb even in the outdated footage, but the game just looks massively fun. It’s very reminiscent of Ocarina of Time, yet takes that world so much further and makes it all look richer. Backed up with what we now know is at least 70 hours of gameplay and a larger game world than both Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker, the possibility of this being the best Zelda yet and consequently one of the best games ever remains very real. December really can’t come soon enough.
