In celebration of its 25th birthday, Nintendo’s iconic Zelda franchise is to take the limelight at October’s GameCity6 event in Nottingham next month.
And chief amongst the planned activities is the transformation of Nottingham Market into a “Hyrulean Market Village” straight out of one of the Zelda games.
Starting at the Market, attendees are tasked with tracking down pieces of the Triforce in “a series of adventures”. They’ll also get their chance to create their own shield and sword, as well as learn to play the Ocarina – and possibly win the instrument.
A world record attempt is also being made. Six gamers will attempt to play all 15 Zelda games in canon order from start to finish. A one-off magazine will also be published based on material submitted between the Wednesday and Friday before Zelda day.
The Zelda day will take place on Saturday October 29th. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is released in the UK November 18th.
