In honor of the Zelda franchise’s 25th anniversary this year, along with the release of the long-anticipated Skyward Sword in Europe today (and the rest of the world over the next week), two of the series’s longtime developers have created a video thanking Zelda fans, whether new or old.  Eiji Aonuma, producer for the series since Ocarina of Time, and Koji Kondo, composer for the series since The Legend of Zelda, made this two-minute video describing their passions for the series, and how glad they are to have become part of such a dedicated group of developers and a passionate group of fans.  Watch your personal thank you video after the jump.

While we can’t, in turn, thank these dedicated men in person, they definitely know that Zelda fans are some of the most passionate out there.  Whether you’re a longtime fan or a recent convert, we’re all Zelda fans.  How do you express your love for the series?
