Nintendo Media | Zelda: Twilight Princess Screens (GameCube)

Twilight Princess is noted to be the longest and most detailed Zelda adventure to date, and Nintendo sure mean business with the latest batch of screenshots. Game Reactor have a bunch of high quality images from the GameCube version, so read on for some astounding detail...

In the latest selections of screens, Link explores an expansive world, complete with vast amounds of fresh green grass, big, bold trees along with the tiniest particles for a very realistic experience.

Some of these images were also featured in a recent edition of American gaming magazine, EGM. Zelda hits stores later this year, rumoured to be October/November 2006.

Additional screens can be found in the game's screen album below.

Stay tuned for further updates.

That screen looks really detailed! Surely we should all look to pre-order as soon as poss?! Smilie

Wow... this game looks absolutely stunning! Big, expansive worlds, what seems to be a lot of movement in certain scenes. I just can't wait to get my hands on the final thing since playing the previous build last year.

The fire-temple-place screenshot (seen in EGM a while back) looks so..so...good!

Definitely! I wish I could do the same, but I'll probably have a crap load of coursework to get done when it hits... dammit! But it should definitely make the Christmas break a whole lot schweeter! Smilie

And this is the GAMECUBE version!? Gawd I hope the Wii version has updated graphics. Even if it's very slight it could quite possibly be the best looking game ever *drools*

From what I've read on other sites, it is still the GC version - I'm not 100% on that, but it definitely seems to be the right one! This, quite simply, is one of the best looking games for the system and probably my most anticipated on this year!

If this is the Cube-version and the screencaps are not altered, then sent every ps2, xbox and xbox360 guy to me and show them the glow-effects in the twilight world, the detailed textures (look at Epona's horseshoes!), the water-effects...
absolutely stunning! great. And Link looks handsome since the first screenshot was published.
and: If the game is to be published in Oct/Nov 06 - then Wii has to be published then at the latest!

just one issue: pleace check the pictures. some do not load entirely, some are misplaced, some load only thumbnail and some are broken. please fix it since these are wunderful pictures!!!

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

I pre-ordered exactly a year ago.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Holy shit, how big is this game gonna be!!Smilie From the hyrule field which is 10 times bigger...the forests we've seen......the huge castles to this!...I am in awe..

Can't wait!! Smilie

*again begins familiar merry jig...*

Fixed the screens Smilie

This was the shot I thought looked absolutely amazing!

Cubed3 Admin/Founder & Designer

wow, jb. Amazing! You are right.
I refered to this one:
http://www.cubed3.com/screens/245/369663/
because it is lighted so subtle. Bump-mapping and glow itself is easy and easy implemented. For it to look good - that's the high art of doing gamegraphics - imho.

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

That image refuses to load more than about an inch for some reason. Smilie

Refresh - The previous upload corruped for some weird reason. Damn my sucky internet.

I hope the game is bigger in terms of the number of dungeons you have to play through. Bigger areas in general (bigger towns, bigger fields, etc) are nice but dungeons are where it's at with Zelda. I was disappointed at how short Wind Waker was

Oh yeah, it was soooo fun! SmilieSmilie

I really hope they don't have some long-ass search in this Zelda, though it would offer a nice change of pace, it would get boring too quickly!

Cubed3 Admin/Founder & Designer

hmmm, starting to seem a bit more like fable but it looms awesome to me either way.

Aw, come on. One logo was enough, we don't need two!

Screens look absolutely fantastic, with the exception of the hyrule field one; the trees look ugly and the area isn't big enough.

I think WW's boating got a bad press. All that sailing gave me time to take stock of life and the underrated graphics (I loved how the stylized sea and sky could completely change colour depending on weather/time of day/etc.). It also meant I could point the thing in roughly the right direction, go make a cup of tea and grab a chocolate digestive, then come back to see whether I'd been had by a giant octopus thingy or not. Kinda like a game of 'chicken'. Except completely different.

Less posty, more gamey.

Those screens do look fantastic. The single criticism I might have made when I played a few sections of Twilight Princess last year was that some of the colours looked - especially in the outdoor environments - looked a bit washed out, and there were a few duff textures. Such little complaints seemed trivial, considering the thing was only running on a Gamecube, but nonetheless, it looks like this has been addressed, and it's looking even more gorgeous than before.
Twilight Princess is now pretty much the only reason my Cube isn't in a box in the loft. I can't wait.

this game is loooking fooking great!!!!!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

What happened to the new graphic style? Unless that's only in the Wii version?
