Lost in a new world...

by Billy Berghammer - 9:25 pm PDT

Billy begs for Zelda MM impressions because he has no time to start playing it just yet...

Things a little quiet lately? Do you blame Zelda? I think that's a possibility. If you haven't picked up your copy of Zelda: Majora's Mask...what the hell is your problem? I would say 98% of PlanetN2000's staff has been sucked into the 72 hour Zelda love fest. Go figure...

Personally, I really...

IGNCube has finally put an article concerning what many of us have been speculating for some time now: that a part of the Rebirth CGI demo was in fact running off the NGC hardware.

Not only was this confirmed by Mix Core but they went even further...

A small treat from Mix-Core.

NCL development house Mix-Core has released a single screenshot of its newest project, known only as "2" right now.

No information is provided with the screen, but the file path contains the words "Hakofune" and "neji_T2"...could be a clue. The art style is also clearly different from Rebirth's nature themes. Kudos to Quest17 for telling me about this little treat.

So pull out your vinyl, comb back that mullet, break out those horrible glam-rock music videos and rock on to the NES' 15th anniversary!
