Legend of Zelda finally named

No it’s not Winds of Taco Bell

The internet has been alive with rumours of the next Zelda game's full title ever since the Japanese version was named and nobody knew what it meant. Fortunately, Nintendo has hopped into this embarrassing confusion and confirmed that Link and co. will reappear on GameCube in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, which is due out in Q2 2003 in Europe.

In The Wind Waker, Link sets out to rescue his sister, who has been captured by an enormous bird. The title refers to the way the game places significance on the direction of the wind, and how Link can actually control it.
