Yoshiyuki Oyama, character designer on forthcoming GameCube title Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, has revealed that arch nemesis Ganon is about to make a comeback.
In an interview with Nintendo Power magazine, Oyama said: "No discussion of Twilight Princess' enemies can end without mentioning Ganon.
"I know that everyone's wondering what's going on with Link's old nemesis. All I can say now is, we're preparing more than you could possibly ever, ever, expect..."
But although that was all he was prepared to say directly on the subject, Oyama did hint that Ganon will be harder to defeat than ever - as will his cohorts. Oyama reckons the enemies in previous games have been far to easy to do over, and Twilight Princess will offer much more of a challenge.
"How will my monsters ensure that Twilight Princess is the greatest Zelda game ever? Wait and see," Oyama said. "You won't be disappointed."
Nintendo's still keeping shtum over when we'll get our hands on Twilight Princess - but we'll keep you posted.
