New visions of Twilight Princess

There's so much riding on Link this time - quite literally, on occasions when he transforms into a wolf - that new screens can only make us want it more. And it's fair to say that the shots Nintendo has released (available by clicking the Images tab) make us want it very much indeed.

There are familiar elements: fishing, sprawling fields to cross on horseback. There are elements we've had time to get used to: Link's alternate wolfen form, or the insidious ink-curls of the Twilight Realm. And then there's more.

If you've somehow missed all the backstory to Link's last GameCube and first Wii outing, check out ourpreview. Otherwise, watch and wonder how much we still haven't seen by the time Twilight Princess finally makes its royal appearance this year.
