Check out Zelda Universe’s Twilight Princess: English Dub

img_2514

Last month, fellow fan site Zelda Universe launched one of its most ambitious projects to date on its YouTube channel: a cinematic re-editing of Twilight Princess that features full-fledged English voiceovers. The overall presentation showcases a deep reverence for the source material, with the performances in the first chapter alone being top-notch.

That said, the most recent entry, which released just yesterday, is particularly noteworthy for its introduction of Midna. Based on the handful of fan-dubs I’ve watched throughout the years, this actress’s performance offers the most convincing portrayal of the mischievous imp yet. Her tone is often condescending enough to sympathize with the perpetual snarl on Link’s face, yet playful enough to remain endearing.

Hit the jump to check out the first two chapters of Twilight Princess: English Dub, and definitely share your thoughts in the comments below!

Considering that Nintendo’s first full-fledged Switch presentation doesn’t land until Jan. 12, I figured we wouldn’t see any new Breath of the Wild footage until the new year. However, according to a pair of teaser images from Geoff Keighley, this year’s The Game Awards will feature new footage from Link’s next adventure.

The show begins this Thursday, Dec. 1, at 6 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. ET. Talk about a holiday surprise! What are you hoping to see from the presentation? A new environment? A boss battle? More of a showcase of the game’s voice acting? Be sure to let us know in the comments below!
