Nintendo Will Likely Talk About The Legend of Zelda’s 25th Anniversary At E3

We know The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword will be at E3. Now, thanks to Kid Icarus: Uprising director, Masahiro Sakurai, we also know that Nintendo will likely shed light upon their Zelda 25th anniversary celebration details at the expo.


Sakurai posted pictures of his E3 badge to Twitter just a while ago:


So, what are you hoping Zelda’s 25th is going to be like? A compilation of older games? An official lore book detailing the timeline (yeah, right)?

Read more stories about & on Siliconera.

  • Project Sora, hopefully they unveil a new game.

    • puchinri

      I thought Project Sora was basically for Kid Icarus? I would like to see something from Sora Ltd. or Project Sora though.

    ━ Special Zelda themed 3DS.
    ━ Anything related to Majora’s Mask.
    ━ Zelda CD-i remakes!

    Though I’m hoping for something a little more exciting than the standard stuff one does during a series anniversary.

    I’m afraid it’s just a bunch of older games in one disc, like for Mario and Dragon Quest.

    Not terribly bad, but technically, there was already something similar for the Gamecube.

    • puchinri

      But that’s just like five games, right? If they did practically most of the games, then that’d be ideal.

      • malek86

        After the Super Mario Collection only included the first three games, I wouldn’t be especially hopeful of that.

        Besides, the GC disc already included four games, it only lacked LttP because it was being sold on GBA at the time. On the same vein, if they did something similar now, it might include LttP but probably not OOT, for the same reason.

        • puchinri

          That’s true. Although if they included the games not collected, it’d be just as well.

  • a refined zelda cartoon with the famous line “EXCUSEEEEE MEEE PRINCESSS”. Just please, no more remakes.

  • Code

    rar, I want his cat >O> Also come on new SSB4 omo~!

  • Nintendo finally revealing the timeline?

    Ishaan no more sweets before bed. They make you cwazy.

    • Hey, they’ve talked about it quite a bit!

      • Yeah I know its just that I dont think ill ever get a straight forward answer :(.

  • Skyward Sword will be coming out this year, maybe they can release a special edition of that game?

  • gatotsu911

    Nintendo will talk about Zelda at E3?? THIS IS MY SURPRISED FACE: :O

    Seriously though. I think my dream Zelda-related E3 announcement would be that they’re doing a total franchise reboot. Developed by Retro.

    Also, I hope Sakurai brings his cat to the press conference.

  • TenRX

    Probably a reboot ofthe series.

    • Isnt almost every game a reboot?

      • IB2004

        Not really not like final fantasy each game has allusions to past or future games like windwaker

    • On second thought they could make “The Legend of Zelda: The Sword of the Galaxy”

  • P4ine

    full-fledged remake of A Link to the Past for Wii/Project Café please :)

    • lostinblue

      Complete with a new Four Swords?

      • P4ine

        Not necessarily, but the game should be in style of Twilight Princess and like five times bigger. :)

  • puchinri

    It would be nice to have a compliation of ALL the games. There are a few I still haven’t played or gotten my hands on at all. 

    And I hope Sakurai will be working on something else soon. Either SSB or another title.

  • XypherCode

    can’t wait! :D

  • Vino (Tim N)

    I wouldnt mind the GB/A games remade in new graphics. And an ALL in one compliation, not just what they think is the best.

  • PrinceHeir

    awww sooo cute :P

  • omg hell yes…. and localize the dragon quest annivesary!!
