After reading about the near-perfect score
awarded to the Japanese release of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
, we resurrected our shrine to Celda and began making offerings of lesser Zelda clones. When we read that the title sold 350,000 copies
in just two days, we yearned to be a tiny cog in that hulking mass of DS carts. Undoubtedly moved by the magical powers of our shrine, Nintendo of America has just announced
an October 1 release date for the portable Zelda, three months from now. We can make it ... but we're gonna sacrifice another copy of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
just in case.
