First we received the press release, with this little tidbit buried inside:
Fans howl for new Zelda game on Nintendo GameCube: The Legend of Zeldaź: Twilight Princess remains the most anticipated game on any console this year. Players control Link as he travels on foot, battles on horseback or roams the vast countryside -- as a wolf. With lush graphics and a deep storyline, the gritty, sweeping adventure demonstrates the awesome power and versatility of Nintendo GameCube.
We have a title and Link transforms into a wolf? Granted, "Twilight Princess" did give me a giggle. Not only is it a little on the effeminate side, but I immediately thought of the inevitable abbreviation, Zelda: TP. From here on out, this will be the toilet paper Zelda game. OK, maybe not, but I'll be thinking it every time I type it out. As for the feminine title, well, that's immediately erased by the fact Link is also a wolf. What's more manly than that?
