Twilight Princess GC Online Only in Japan

Nintendo's really pushing that Wii version, aren't they? According to Famitsu, Nintendo is only going to offer the Gamecube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess through online order in Japan, leading Digital Battle to speculate:

"The main reason for Nintendo to do this is to avoid both versions of the game in stores at the same time. Because of the Wii launch, they would much rather see the Wii Zelda sell than the GameCube version, and that wouldn't be a guarantee if the two versions are on the same shelf. There is no information on whether this will be the same procedure in Europe and US"

Twilight Princess’ Hyrule Field Is Boring, Empty, And Excellent

TheGamer Writes "In my experience, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess’ once-warm reception has chilled somewhat over the years. Praised at launch as a beautiful return to form after the “childish” art style of its direct predecessor, the world eagerly embraced a game that more closely followed Ocarina of Time’s famous structure and plot cues. Perhaps most alluringly of all, the grandeur and sheer scope of this reimagined Hyrule Field wowed millions of us."

I am a huge Zelda fan and love them all, but for me Ocarina Of Time is the greatest and my second all time favourite game after Final Fantasy VII.

LoveSpuds554d ago (Edited 554d ago )

You sir, have good taste in games :)

I also love all of the Zelda games but I adore Windwaker (Specifically the HD version on WiiU) most of all. It is a close run thing with Breath of the Wild though.

Special mention to Cadence of Hyrule too, what an awesome spin off title that was!

GaboonViper553d ago

Cheers Spuds, yep i love Windwaker too, beautiful artstyle, and i loved sailing and finding all the secrets out there.

blackbeld553d ago

Agreed. For me top 3 of all time is.

1. ocarina of time
2. Final fantasy Vll
3. MGS1

GaboonViper553d ago

Brilliant top 3, would love a MGS1 remake that has been rumoured.

LoveSpuds553d ago

Yup, hard to argue with that top 3 squire, some quality games right there!

-Foxtrot555d ago

Oh gee can't imagine what Number 1 is

....

A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker etc is better than Breath of the Wild.

lockedongamer1555d ago

I respectfully disagree, but they're all great games.

porkChop555d ago

I think it really depends on what you're looking for. If you want a traditional Zelda game then OoT or WW would be better to you. But if you want a Zelda game that really leans into adventure and exploration, and if you want intelligent systems/logic, BotW would be the better game.

I enjoy both. I understand why some people aren't fond of it but for me it was a breath of fresh air that I really needed. I'd become so burnt out on unimaginative games and BotW sort of made me appreciate games again, as weird as that may sound.

godofboobees554d ago

Those are not traditional Zelda games

Crows90553d ago

Right...so let's pretend ocarina of time didnt have exploration, secret dungeons and other secrets. Complex boss mechanics and exploration rewards. At least a traditional Zelda has dungeons.

porkChop553d ago

What point are you attempting to make? At no point did I say that OoT didn't have any of that. However, the level of exploration and sense of adventure are vastly different between OoT and BotW.

Brazz554d ago

Breath of the Wild is overrated as shot, Wind waker is much better.

P_Bomb554d ago

I’m a Link to the Past guy.

MadLad554d ago

Majora's Mask still holds as my favorite to this day, despite being the black sheep of the series.

pietro1212554d ago

I love them all, but Wind Walker, Link to the Past and Minish Cap are my favorites

John_McClane553d ago

Link to the Past was so, so good! Those chickens though! 🤣
