Many of you may know the fact that Nintendo is playing up the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda. Well Nintendo has recently announced new online activities for this event. You can go to the official 25th anniversary website at http://www.zelda.com/25th. This site has a number of activities including an interactive history of The Legend of Zelda, the video of the orchestra from their E3 press conference playing music from series, and a contest to make a Zelda Flipnote using a DSi or DSi XL. These along with paper flipnotes that are submitted by September 9th will be reviewed by the people that have worked on the Zelda series, including Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka, Eiji Aonuma and Yoshiaki Koizumi. After they have reviewed the notes, fans will be able to enjoy the posted flip notes on the anniversary site, on the Wii via the Nintendo Channel, and on DSi and DSi XL system with Flipnote Hatena.
But they don't stop there. The Legend of Zelda Anniversary concert has 2 stops so far (Los Angeles and London). Keeping my fingers crossed they make a stop at or near Denver, but with our history I am not holding my breath. Then to top the cake, starting in September, owners of a DSi, DSi XL, or 3DS will be able to download The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for free. This is on top of the new Wii Zelda game coming out this year. This all proves it is a great time to be a Zelda fan.
