20 years, 50 minutes, one Link: a Zelda Retrospective

“Well, excuuuse me, Princess!” If you don’t know where that line came from, then maybe you’re not as much of a Zelda fan as you thought you were. Can anyone here, in fact, claim that they’re the ultimate Zelda fan? Do you know where to find every single heart container, every fairy-inducing bush, or every chicken to harass?

It doesn’t matter. All Zelda fans, whether new or ancient, can now get a full 50-minute crash course into the whole Zelda story with a few insider info of how the games evolved. In light of the first and second parts of GameTrailers’ Zelda Retrospective, here’s the full deal, including not just the first two parts, but also all the other installments until the 6th.

Whether you were able to keep up with all the Zelda titles (whoa!) or not, you’d be able to peek into the long and short of every game in this vid. You’ve got all of the titles here, from the Nes to the SNES, the handhelds, to a 3D Hyrule introduced in the Nintendo64, then under a cel-shaded makeover, until finally… The next-gen.

So, grab your popcorn and get comfy. If you still haven’t played The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess yet, then there’s one more reason left why you should keep your hands away from the Wiimote for now. Let’s all take some time to let nostalgia kick into our system and, by looking into Link’s past, prepare ourselves for his (and your) future.
