    Default LoZ: Twilight Princess changed so much during its dev-cycle - First 3 trailers plus some great scenes

    For some reason, Twilight Princess is still my favorite 3D Zelda game. Ocarina of Time was revolutionary. Wind Waker was great but too short. I never could really get into Skyward Sword. Yet, Twilight Princess just built so much on top of what OoT did. I bought a Wii at launch with TP in Nov 2006. I bought the GameCube version of TP like 3 weeks later as soon as it arrived in Dec 2006. I played both to the end before that year was out.

    However I'm not making this thread to discuss how good TP is compared to other 3D Zelda entries. Everyone likes a certain entry in the series for his or her own reasons. That's the way it should be. This thread is really to start a discussion about all of the things completely removed or changed during TP's ~4 or so years in development. We knew about this game's existance starting from the last ~2.5 years of development, from E3 2004 until its release in Nov and Dec 2006 on Wii and GameCube respectively.


    Two prototype trailers for what would eventually become Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

    (yeah yeah, I know, probably the best moment in Nintendo E3 history)

    First trailer as Twilight Princess.

    All three together (fthe irst reveal is without fan reaction + different music)

    Some choice proto/beta screens not even in any of the trailers:


















    Man, no doubt most of us would love to get our hands on playable proto/beta versions of Twilight Princess, or even just some unseen videos, especially from 2004-2005.

    I remembered back in 2004, I was pretty excited and wanted to learn more about the game. I would find and read articles from different game outlets and websites which kept my interest strong. Then after reading a couple of Nintendo Power magazines during the summer of 2005, I was ready for the game and couldn't wait to start a new adventure in Hyrule. Of course, the game was delayed until 2006 but I did brought the game once it was released for the Gamecube. I played the game to completion and then felt pretty satisfied with the vast world and secrets that it have to offer


    I lived my life with no fear nor hatred... For these traits are certain to the content of my immortal being.

    The final Twilight Princess seems so utterly different from the scenes shown in 2004 and at GDC 2005. It's like an almost completely different game.

    I would love a remake (not just an HD version of the original) with at least some of the omitted content restored. Although I know it'll never happen.

    The best one can hope for is an HD remake ala Wind Waker HD. In the meantime, it's all about playing it on the Dolphin emu.
