    I reported a while back at TGS that EA had a new Zelda ripoff in the works. It's called Tsumuji, and it's a new DS game clearly inspired from Zelda DS. Have a look at the new trailer-



    Yeah, so anything to say about this? Why would you want to play EA's version of Zelda? Well for one, it looks like a pretty decent clone. I'm getting a Zelda vibe from the graphics and gameplay (lol @ the shuriken being used the same way as boomerang), and an Okami vibe from the music. I'll try this out when it comes out. The Japanese release is February 25th 2010. Nothing really wrong with trying to copy a winning formula, and I quite enjoyed Phantom Hourglass, despite the negativity by some people.

    Looks good. Sometimes these under-rated titles pleasently surprise me the most.

    I'll be interested in this if it uses button controls. Zero motivation to play the touch-screen affairs.

    Definitely Zelda inspired - Just hope they don't copy it too closely (I noticed small fairy in video AKA in Zelda), as I'd like to see some innovation on 'clones' (good and bad)

    Is the video of the DS version ? or a mockup/teaser - as it seems that there's more movements avaliable (i.e crawling) which IIR isn't in Zelda PH

    Plus it shows other characters - so will there be more interaction between characters ?? or will they only show up in cutscenes

    Will it be like a Gamecube/Wii version of Zelda transferred to the DS ?? - Now that will be some feat of achievement

    Pretty sure it's just a mockup, as I doubt the DS has the processing power to handle crawling.

    looks very interesting esp since they are trying to replicate good games on the DS...
    replicate a game (a GOOD game) and make the DS have it's prestige back
