ZELDA MEMORIES: NINTENDO My Zelda
Nintendo’s UK team shares their favourite memories from The Legend of Zelda JAMES
HONEYWELL, Marketing Manager My favourite moment was when I was playing The Legend of
Zelda: Link to that Pastand I warped to the Dark World (as a pink rabbit) and realised just how much more there was to explore.
BEN TAYLOR, Head of Trade Marketing Giving the fish as a sacrifice to Lord Jabu Jabu to enter his belly in The Legend of
Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
ROB LOWE, Marketing Manager When you make Darunia dance by playing your Ocarina – one of the only
times I've ever laughed out loud with joy at a video game.
LANGFORD, Junior Product Manager The whole experience of Ocarina of Timeon N64 was a magical
one and I throughly enjoyed re- visiting it on 3DS. The Zeldaseries has always been at forefront of gaming in terms of controls. I thought that Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Trackson DS showcased this brilliantly. The bit on Phantom Hourglasswhere you had to physically close and open the DS to

press the crest against the sea chart in the Ocean Temple had me stumped for quite a while.
SCHOFIELD, National Account Manager My favourite Zeldamoment is remembering the people
going onto to GameMaster and having trouble getting past level two, only to be ridiculed by Patrick Moore!
DAWN PAINE, Assistant General
Manager & Marketing Director
My favourite Zelda memory came during
Twilight Princess when I entered the Twlight realm and was transformed into a wolf! It allowed you to see whole new areas and track scents, opening up a whole new aspect to the game.
PIERSON, Marketing Administrator There are plenty
moments within the games that I
could say were my favourites. However, what topped it for me happened outside of the games. As a relatively new employee at Nintendo, arriving at the Symphony concert, seeing the whole thing come together and the incredible Zeldafan turnout – it was simply amazing. I felt so proud to be a part of something that so many people love.
ANDY YATES, Sales Director UK & Ireland When I first joined
Nintendo back in 1995 I hadn’t really been aware of Zelda
to be honest. However, in 1998 when Ocarina of Timelaunched I experienced my first play and became an advocate. I remember Link travelling through time and navigating various dungeons and I particularly remember the music playing an important role within the game. Just talking about it again like this brings back so many fond memories. I might even get my N64 out of the loft and have another crack at it – even the software packaging exudes quality with its black and gold box.
Even the original Ocarina of Time packaging exudes quality with its black and gold box.
