Rock on! Inside, you’ll find both PH’s general release schedule and the entire video of Miyamoto’s GDC keynote speech.
First of all, Nintendo has issued a an press release that provides the release date for “Phantom Hourglass (GDC two-player version)”. Mind you, we’ve got no clue what that means, and neither do the people at Rauru’s Return who first reported this, but we’re hoping that it refers to the full game as well as the multiplayer mode… Here’s the release for your viewing pleasure.
The Legend of Zelda®: Phantom Hourglass
(GDC two-player version)
Launch Date: Holiday 2007
ESRB: RP (Rating Pending)
Game Type: Action Adventure
Players: 1 or 2
- Two players battle one another in a race to see who can collect the most Force Gems within a limited amount of time.
- Players alternate between controlling Link and controlling three phantom guards.
- When a player controls Link, he can race to key locations to grab Force
Gems. When a player controls the three phantom guards, the mission is to
keep Link from the Force Gems at all costs.
Also, Miyamoto’s speech at the GDC was officially AWESOME, and you should get to see it in all of its adorable full-length glory. Thankfully, LegendofZelda.com managed to dig up a link to both an English and Japanese broadcast of the entire presentation. Check it out for yourself, punks.
