GameCube Zelda worries quashed

Thursday 12 October 2006
After announcing at its monthly conference that Japanese gamers would be forced to use Nintendo's own online shop to purchase the GameCube version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Nintendo UK has confirmed to GamesRadar that European gamers will be able to grab a copy from shops as per usual.

"Nintendo has no online store in Europe to buy products, therefore The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be available in the UK via the usual retail channels," our Nintendo contact has assured us.

Nintendo was unable to provide us with a confirmed UK launch date for the GameCube version of Twilight Princess, although we expect it to appear before Christmas, after the launch of the motion-sensitive Wii version.
