Nintendo celebrates 25 years of Zelda with new games and gold Wii Remote

Kicking off Nintendo’s E3 press conference, Nintendo had an orchestra play memorable Legend of Zelda tunes while Shigeru Miyamoto reenacted Link’s motion. A trailer demoing 25 years worth of Zelda played to to a thunderous crowd. But what is Nintendo doing to celebrate the festivities?

It’s releasing a bunch of games, a new gold Wii Remote and two special edition musical soundtracks. Hit the link to find out the full details.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening – 3DS Virtual Console – available today by day’s end.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D  - includes hint mode, Master Quest and extra boss mode.

In addition to four Zelda games that will make their way to Nintendo systems by the end of the year, a special gold Zelda Tri-force emblazoned Wii RemotePlus wil also be sold alongside Skyward Sword. It looks pretty nifty and looks to be a collector’s item for any diehard Zelda fan.

Spoiling fans is what Nintendo does best, so what better way to get Zelda fans all giddy than with The Legend of Zelda 25th Annivesary Symphony concerts that will be held across regions around the world.

Lastly, two CDs will be released: 1) soundtrack for Ocarina of Time 3D will be available to all Club Nintendo members who register their games early and 2) Symphony CD from the concerts.

Boy, does Nintendo know how to spoil its fans or what?
