To mark the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, Nintendo has announced the launch of ‘Make Your Own Zelda Flipnote’ – a competition which goes live today to find some of the best, original Zelda-inspired Flipnote animations from across the globe using the Nintendo DSiWare software Flipnote Studio, which is exclusively available for Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL.
The ‘Make Your Own Zelda Flipnote’ competition, which opens for entries today and which closes on 9th September 2011, invites Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL owners to create and submit their own animated Zelda Flipnote, celebrating memorable scenes, unique characters and challenging puzzles from across Zelda’s 25-year history. Using one of a few provided sample flipnotes, aim to unleash your Zelda imagination by creating an original animation; animate Ganon battling, have Princess Zelda being rescued or perhaps animate Link solving a puzzle in one of the many dungeons featured in The Legend of Zelda series of videogames.
Each entrant will be able to submit a single animation which will be judged by key members of the Nintendo Co., Ltd. development team who have been closely involved in the making of The Legend of Zelda series of games. Mr. Takashi Tezuka, Mr. Eiji Aonuma, Mr. Yoshiaki Koizumi and the original creator of Zelda and Mario, Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto will be looking for and choosing some of the most original creative flipnotes which will then be posted on the Nintendo homepage, Flipnote Hatena on Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL and the Nintendo Channel for other The Legend of Zelda fans to marvel at.
This global competition is part of a special 25th Anniversary website for the Legend of Zelda series, www.zelda25th.co.uk. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest celebrations of the 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, and other Nintendo franchises.
