By decree of the King

In Site updates

Surely the most exciting news Zelda fans are going to receive today - Zelda Elements is back. A bit rough around the edges for now, so expect a fuller-fleshed Community section, and proper skins for the various member features in the very near future. Oh also there’s every chance the site is broken in Windows-exclusive browsers as I haven’t had the chance to test it over there. Cripes.

However, I decided to launch today because I didn’t think it right for the site to be down during what is hopefully the most significant Zelda announcement in over half a decade. There have been no new announcements on a console Zelda game since Nintendo electrified E3 2004 with the debut Twilight Princess trailer.

Like you guys, I’m pretty excited to see what they have for show later today. We’ve been promised a groundbreaking Zelda adventure that takes full advantage of the Wii Motion Plus controller, with hints that Link may at last take to the skies.

After a lackluster Microsoft E3 conference, all eyes are going to be on Nintendo to bring their A-game and redeem E3 2010. With promises of Zelda and the new Nintendo 3DS console, it looks hard to see how they could disappoint.
