SPOnG can confirm that a brand new extended video of the new Zelda game for GameCube will be shown on March 10 at around 11AM Pacific time.
The lengthy feature will follow Nintendo president Satoru Iwata’s keynote speech at this year’s Game Developers’ Conference
and will be the highlight of what is increasingly evolving into a consumer interest show.
The revised video sadly replaces the extended version of the E3 2004 roll which wowed (to the point of tears in some cases) attendees at Nintendo’s pre show warm-up. SPOnG was shown that version behind closed doors last May, and despite our best efforts, were unable to secure further access to it. We can confirm that this version will now pass into videogame folklore and will never be seen again.
In other news, several sources published over the weekend are expecting Iwata-san to unveil some kind of tangible online plans during his keynote address. Some publications have claimed Internet plans for both the DS and Revolution will be fully outlined, with Nintendo this morning refusing to outline specifics or issue a denial.
We will bring you updates in the coming days.
