Zelda voice talent announced

Details of Link's next adventure finally start to emerge. Slowly. (And spoiler-ler-ly, if you hadn't guessed who might be back.)

Nintendo may be keeping details of the new Legend of Zelda title firmly under their minish caps, but a few snippets have emerged on IMDB.com.

Cast members are set to include Takashi Nagasako as Ganondorf Dragmire, a role he previously played in Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time. Noboyuki Hiyama, who also starred in Ocarina and Majora's Mask, will play Link. Eiji Aounuma is listed as director and Shigeru Miyamoto is down to write the script.

There's also a new tagline which seems to tie-in with Nintendo's promise of "a more grown-up Link": "Blades will bleed. Shields will shatter. But as the light fades... Will the hero rise again? Or will darkness reign?"

More importantly, will we ever get a confirmed title and release date? We'll keep you posted.
