is coming and they couldn’t be prouder.
At a press conference early in the week, attendees were treated to the

Twighlight Princess. To help promote the game, the trailer was provided
to members of the press on a limited NintendoDS cartridge. The footage
shows Link, all grown up this time and out of the curly-q cell shaded

In a word, Zelda is gorgeous. The dynamic lighting and detailed
character animations prove that the Cube is still a contender and can
