New Link Render Reminiscent of Twilight Princess

Yesterday’s Nintendo financial results briefing saw its fair share of key unveilings, not the least of which being the company’s new rewards program. We even got a glimpse of its first foray into the mobile gaming market.

However, with this being the world that we live in, what had most people freaking out was a single character render from a promotional image. The featured image above showcases a ton of Nintendo icons, but as far as I can tell, the Hylian Hero is the only one to receive any kind of visual overhaul.

Interestingly, this image of Link is not only identical to the one shown in recent retailer banners, but his pose is identical to that of early Twilight Princess artwork.

This seems to lend further credence to the recent rumor that an HD remake of Link and Midna’s adventure is in the works. Again, until any official word from Nintendo is released, that’s still just a rumor. That said, it’s difficult to look at that render and not think about the prospect.

What do you think? Does this image point toward the likelihood of a Twilight Princess remake? Share your thoughts in the comments below.


WMB is getting a makeover!

Want Midna Back started back in 2008, and a lot has changed since then. We’ve seen a major revision of the site a few years ago thanks to the implementation of WordPress, allowing for easier publishing and navigation, but with this new times focused on creating websites that are mobile-friendly and a bigger focus on social media, we needed to give this page yet another makeover.

The process is happening soon, with the website going into maintenance mode tonight as we make all the necessary changes to the website in the process of the next few days. In the meantime, I want to remind you that the forums will remain accessible for users to participate, and as always you can access the WMB chat (albeit we might push the Mibbit Client to a different page).

Feel free to comment away if you have any concerns about the site’s redesign – if you have any questions, be sure to fire them away. We hope you enjoy the new site as we deploy it this weekend. LB out.

Did You Know Gaming explores Twilight Princess

Throughout the past several years, Did You Know Gaming has become a go-to source of video game development trivia. Given its abundence of Zelda-related content, especially, it was only a matter of time before the folks over there tackled Twilight Princess.

From the game’s original art direction to the inspiration behind the Wii version’s bow and arrow interface, this video covers a ton of ground. Check it out after the jump!
