And another chapter in the epic Zelda: Twilight Princess Gamecube/Revolution/Wii platform jumping drama unfolds. As we reported yesterday, the Gamecube version of Link's latest adventure will only be available to Japanese gamers via Nintendo's online store. Nintendo of America had already confirmed a US release shortly after the Wii's launch, but what of the rest of the English speaking world [and, ahem, mainland Europe - Ed]? Would our 'retro controlled' version of Zelda be consigned to mail order, or even be canned entirely?
Well British games rag CVG tracked down one of those pesky Nintendo of Europe reps, and it was confirmed Link would make a final retail appearance for Gamecube in PAL regions. ""Zelda: Twilight Princess on GameCube will be available via the usual retail channels in Europe." said the unnamed Nintendo rep.
No word on a release date yet, but for Nintendo fans not planning on a Wii purchase (all two of you) and insane completists wanting to be gouged by buying a game twice (probably 300K of you), we'll keep you informed.
