As the Street Fighter series reached a milestone a few weeks ago, Nintendo’s Zelda series does the same. At 30 years old, the series has gone through lots of changes to stay up with the times.
it’s also a series that has outlasted so many other games that came from the NES era of games in the 80s.
It’s gone through the 8 bit simple-ness of its 8 bit roots from where it was born to the 3D remastering on the 3DS, and even a cartoon-y playfulness of The Wind Walker. Out of all the Zelda games, Twilight Princess has been considered by some circles as the best of them all and the question is, can it be outdone? But, that doesn’t mean all has been good for the Zelda series. If you remembered or even played Link: The Faces of Evil, Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon and Zelda’s Adventure, we feel for you. Were you one of the few who rushed home to watch the cartoon that was broadcast in the late 80’s and early 90’s? Don’t tell anyone if you did.
Speaking of television, this year, it’s been rumored that Nintendo and Netflix will come together to make a live action series which fans are desperately waiting to have confirmed. Hopefully it won’t be as bad as the cartoon series.
Another awaited announcement that Zelda fans are looking for will be the Legend of Zelda game scheduled to release this year. The big issue with there being no concrete release date is whether or not it will be released on the ailing Wii U system or if it will be held back for Nintendo’s rumored NX system. Let’s be honest, Nintendo would benefit by holding the newest Zelda title as a killer app and day one release for whatever new system they plan to unleash on the world.
Then again…it just may get kicked back to 2017.
