1-UP Goes To The Zelda Source

ZeldaFor a game that we're supposedly not going to learn anything new about until E3 there sure is a lot of new The Legend of Zelda information floating around out there.  Real information, too, not just rumors.

This week's information comes from 1-UP.com where recently some Electronic Gaming Monthly staffers journeyed across the sea to Japan to speak with Zelda director Eiji Aonuma and Nintendo music-man Koji Kondo.  Those lucky EGMers even had the opportunity to play a demo of the game that seems to be further along (or less crippled) than the demo the rest of us will have a chance to sample at E3.  Also of note is this:

When I ask about the rumors that Link is a werewolf, he gets a funny look on his face. "If Link is...?" he asks the translator, then says he can't answer the question. It's tough to read, but if I had to guess, I'd say his reaction sounded less like surprise I had hit on something and more like I had just gotten the name wrong...

Get ready, folks, because here comes Phase 2 of the werewolf rumor: Princess Zelda is the werewolf, Ganon is the werewolf, Epona the horse is the werewolf, Wolfos the wolf monster is the werewolf...
