After having several failed
attempts at subtitling the "Zelda no Video" documentary
on The Legend of Zelda series, I have finally resorted to going to
a wider audience than just Zelda fans. Also, because not everyone
can download the file I put up, I have also decided to take the following
action; I've put onto Google Video the entire "Zelda no Video"
documentary for everyone to view and perhaps to help translate.
This documentary was actually released in a very
primitive form on VHS back in 2000, but it was later expanded into
the final version it is seen here, which was first made available
on DVD in Japan prior to The Wind Waker's release there. This documentary
is courtesy of Nintendo Company, Limited and Enterbrain! Entertainment.
It is roughly an hour and twenty minutes long, and is all in Japanese.
From what I know about it thanks
to the limited translations, it features commentary on each release
by the Zelda team and some Capcom members. There's a good portion
of commentary from Eiji Aonuma, and a big interview with Shigeru Miyamoto
at the end of the video. There's also some cool music and a lot of
interesting things said from what I was told about the first twenty
minutes. There's also the reaction to the unveiling of "Celda".
Not to spoil too much, though,
wait until after the credits for a little special something. Please
remember, this video was put online by myself, and I would really
appreciate anyone using it give us credit for it, and try to push
the localization/translation of the video. We'd love to see this translated
so everyone can fully enjoy it!
