Now fans can share their passion for the series and document its history with a new 25th anniversary website at http://www.zelda.com/25th
. The anniversary website includes an interactive history of The Legend of Zelda, as well as a video featuring an orchestra performing music from the series at the 2011 E3 Expo.
Starting today through Sept. 9, Nintendo DSi™ or Nintendo DSi XL™ owners are also invited to create their own flipnotes, or short animations, inspired by The Legend of Zelda series. Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL owners can use one of three flipnote templates with music from The Legend of Zelda series, then complete and upload their creations via the Flipnote Studio application.
Flipnote Studio is available as a free download from the Nintendo DSiWare™ service, and also comes pre-installed on select Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL hardware. Fans can also submit a paper entry by mail. The best Zelda-themed flipnotes will be evaluated by key Nintendo developers who have worked on the series - including Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka, Eiji Aonuma and Yoshiaki Koizumi - and posted for fans to enjoy on the http://www.zelda.com/25th
website, the Nintendo Channel on the Wii™ console and Flipnote Hatena on Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL systems.
