At what point did everything happen so fast? We don’t know, but today is a special day for fans of Zelda Well, one of its installments is celebrating its 15th anniversary. We refer to The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess which debuted on a day like today, but 2006, on the Nintendo Wii.
Zelda: Twilight Princess: the “realistic” delivery fans expected
Arisen from the division of opinions and the ashes of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess took a different course in its development process, led by Eiji Aonuma, since at the beginning the idea was to give continuity to the 2003 title. However, Nintendo warned of the divided reception it had Zelda: The Wind Waker And then the idea arose to fulfill the expectation of a delivery that bet on a fantasy world whose art design and theme were more mature.
As the process progressed, Nintendo revealed The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess at E3 2004 being one of the most memorable presentations in the history of the event, as the trailer was the most epic and when the fans saw Link ―which was more similar to that title that was thought for the GameCube prior to the launch of the console – they just freaked out.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess debuted on Wii and then GameCube
Originally, the plan for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess it was like a GameCube game, but the console’s poor sales made it necessary to consider plans for the next system, the Nintendo Wii. Hence the decision was made that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess debuted first on the new console, so on November 19, 2006, the hype for the Wii went through the roof as Nintendo was seen as betting big by starting the console cycle with a installment of its popular adventure franchise. .
The version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess arrived in December of that same year on GameCube, confirming that the best way to play the title was on that console, since the work on the Wii version was an adaptation of controls to respond to the orders of the Wiimote and the Nunchuck, in addition that Link became right-handed, a detail that sought to avoid controversy since only few users of the new console would be left-handed.
In the end, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess It wowed many fans with its story of dark tints, the possibility of seeing Link transformed into a wolf and a dungeon design that divided opinions.
Happy 15 years, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess!
