New Pictures & Details on the Zelda GBC Games
Zelda no Densetsu: Fushigina Konomi (which can be translated: Legend of Zelda: The Mysterious Seeds or Acorn of the Mysterious Tree), the new Zelda GBC games won't form a trilogy after all. Originally planned as three chapters, each corresponding to a fragment of the Triforce ("Chapter of Power", "Wisdom" and "Courage"), the series has been cut down to two installments, first one being changed to "Chapter of Earth". Here's a summary of the beginning of the game, from Nintendo's website:
"The adventure begins when Link, guided by an unknown force, visits an ancient castle deep within a forest. Venturing within, Link comes across the Triforce resting on an altar. The instant he touches the Triforce, an disembodied voice roars and a dazzling light momentarily blinds him. When he regains his senses, he finds himself in a forest he has never seen before.
Link joins a troupe of traveling entertainers and gets to know Din, a young and graceful dancer with the company. His fleeting peace is shattered, however, when an ominous cloud blots out the sun. Without warning, a giant tornado sweeps Din away as an unearthly voice bellows, "I found you, Din! I am Dark General Gorgon. You are really the Shrine Maiden of Gaia!" The tornado quickly vanishes, but in its wake it has utterly -- and disastrously -- scrambled the order of seasons."
