Legend of Zelda Movie Trailer – As much as the Zelda fan in me wants to believe this, i think IGN has pulled off one of the most expensive April Fools Stunts ever. Not as good as the Sheng Long bit by EGM but close. How do i know it’s a fake? There isnt even one Nintendo logo/name anywhere…..Oh wait, i did see a “based on the videogame by Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo Ltd.” in the credits. Oh snap!
YEP IGN admitted that this is an april fools joke: “[EDITOR’S NOTE: April 2, 2008 – 12:01 a.m. PST. Yup, you guessed it. The Legend of Zelda trailer featured above is part of an elaborate April Fool’s Day prank. Check back in later today for more details on the IGN/Rainfall Films collaboration that resulted in this “love it or hate it” piece of videogame movie history.]”
Impressions: Nice hair, Link + Zelda looks spot on while Ganon looks like a big Sesame Street reject. Nice BGM. a bit fanservice on the boss scenes but nice nonetheless.
