    Ooh, interesting. Closest they came to saying this previously was that it could take advantage of the Revolution, but this looks like a definite yes to the controller itself.

    This will be very interesting... but I dunno, I just think it would be awkward swinging the revolution controller around if your friends are in the room (that's assuming they don't know what the hell you are doing)

    I expect that an actual Zelda game would rely more on flicks of the wrist rather than actually forcing you to swing your hands around for long periods of time.

    hey

    Would they charge a premium for the 'Master Sword'?!

    I would still buy it though!

    Or maybe you have to locate the sword in the game and they give you a unique code and you send it in to them (along with money) and they send you the Master Sword contoller. That would be kinda neat... a real world reward (for once) for finding something in the game.

    EDIT: I want that Rev skin! :eek: Though the light looks green rather than the "standard" blue... so maybe its a limited edition Rev. In which case, I want one.

    that is a fake image :) just a mock up. as much as I'd love a Zelda skin and that.

    me and the OP for two! I'm glad its delayed. I'm not playing this with composite cables. Rev+VGA/DVI+Twilight Princess for me. plus the most realistic (at the time) virtual sword fighting, bows, fishing, boomerang on what is cited as the greatest Zelda game ever... *ecstasy*

    Curse you for raining on my parade. :(

    But if you look at the file name it's "Rev_zelda_skin" leading me to have the glimmer of hope that it may well be a skin.

    mate! This is Nintendo. There have been Zelda flavours of pretty much all their machines. There will be one :) hopefully just before somebody breaks my original Rev :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Fortunately, I devised a good plan to get a DS lite, and my wife went for it. I sold my DS to get the money for the component cables, cause I'd use the cables more currently than the DS. Then when the Rev. comes out and there's the DS/Rev Wi-Fi link, I'll pick up a new DS lite :D .

    Oh this is good news...i hate the delayed thing because i want to play it now. I really don't care for the control part just the game. I can imagine people getting wrist sprains.


    Bless
