Gaiden and URA Zelda split
Shigeru Miyamoto confirms that URA Zelda(for the 64DD) will be another game than Zelda : Gaiden.
URA Zelda plays in the world of the ocarina of time but will have other quests and
Gaiden will be in another world.
I also have added some new secrets.
I looked at IGN.com for news about Zelda:Gaiden and they sure had it.
These will be the new additions in Zelda:Gaiden.
A Parallel World
In Zelda Gaiden, Link finds himself in a parallel world where characters that were introduced in the first game
may be introduced slightly different. In other words, some of the characters in the game will offer players
different quests and form decidedly opposite partnerships with our hero than they did in Ocarina of Time.
A New Story
The game is again set in Hyrule, a few months after the events in Ocarina of Time took place. Naturally, Link is
his young elf self again and Ganon's threat has been completely defeated. One day, Link happens to bump into a
strange fellow in the woods, Stalkid, who mocks Link and tells him that he has "foalnapped" Epona, Link's horse.
Before Link even knows what's going on, Stalkid takes off and escapes through a mysterious door. Like in "Through
the Looking Glass" (Alice in Wonderland), Link follows the odd guy and finds himself in an all new world, where
an ominous moon threatens to crash to earth and destroy all life. Of course, it's Link to the rescue... With the
help of his trusted friend Navi, he must overcome the dark threat and try to prevent the deadly catastrophe.
The use of masks has been greatly expanded over Ocarina of Time. Link will be able to use the power of certain
masks to change his appearance and give him special abilities. For example, one mask turns him into a Zora,
enabling him to swim underwater. Another mask will turn him into a Goron, allowing Link to curl up into a ball
and roll around. Yet another mask will turn Link into one of those annoying Deku Nut guys and allow him to fly
with the use of a flower in a hang glider-like fashion.
Many of the classic Ocarina of Time weapons and items are back, including the hammer, the bow and arrow, hookshot,
the boomerang, the ocarina, the bombs, and the dagger -- only that young Link can now use all of them. There may
also be some new items in the game that Nintendo hasn't unveiled yet.
The game will progress in real-time. There is a meter at the bottom/middle of the screen now that shows the
position of the sun or moon at all times. It is believed that the time that passes during gameplay affects
the outcome and story of the game much more than in Ocarina of Time. This feature is no doubt a remnant from
the game's planned 64DD incarnation, where everything you do in the game causes lasting repercussions.
Gaiden features completely new, big bosses. While the specifics of all the bosses in the game are still being
kept secret, we do know of at least three: a Gohma-like creature, an oversized frog and a giant warrior.
Since the game was originally designed to run on 64DD, a unit that required the 4MB RAM expansion, it's no
surprise that Gaiden (now on cart) will support the RAM Pak. However, it is very likely that the RAM Expansion
will actually be REQUIRED to play Zelda: Gaiden -- just like with Donkey Kong 64.
Check the new screenshots.
More info in about a week
Gaiden will use extra 4MB
The Japanese magazine Famitsu Weekly reports that the semi-sequel will use the 4MB expansion pack.
The programmers will use it to get more enemies on one screen(!) and to get a higher framerate.
Check back in one week for more news about Zelda : Gaiden from Nintendo's Space World.
Lon Lon Ranch Nude code
A new code added called Lon Lon Ranch Nude code.
It's pretty difficult and I don't know if it will work and I don't know if you want it to work.
I have a new section called enemies. With screenshots of them and how to beat them
Be sure to check this one.
I'm sure glad I hired Dan because he found more already!
I recommend the debug code(there is more about it now), cause it's pretty interesting.
Look here for the secrets.
New staff member and more glitches
Hey I'm back!
We have a new staff member! Look here for info.
We also have two more glitches. BTW I didn't saw the solar eclipse because there were too much clouds, but I noticed something:
Suddenly everything was dark just like when you play the song of the sun in Zelda 64!
I'm going on vacation for about a week, so I can't update for a while.
I'm going to watch the solar eclips in southern Germany.
Zelda 6 Screenshots
I've got some cool Gaiden screenshots!
They are absolutly interesting. Check them here
I'v released the first version of my Zelda Help Database! Because it isn't complete yet it is version 0.5
I have added some really handy maps to my maps section.
I'm also working on a database for Zelda 64, with a complete walktrough, maps, secrets and a list of all the items and enemy's

I have won another award! I'm not even finished with this site and I already have won 3 awards!
I have a new section called Link's contest. For more info click here.
I have won two awards! look here for them.
Newest old news
Yes I know this is old news, but I just opened this site and I have to put something on it right.
On the Powerweb is an article about new Zelda 64 levels. They don't tell much about it, but that doesn't matter, right? If it is from the hands of Miyamoto it will be alright.
