*Rumor* Zelda Wii details revealed

"The game will be vary from the dungeon field dungeon method we are accustomed too (nothing new, Eiji Aonuma confirmed that last year).

You will be able to select right or left handed at the start, and Link will be left or right handed based on your selection

The gameplay and basic mechanics are complete.

They are currently polishing up the story and Characters.

One of the characters they are working on is a innkeeper in Link's home village who has a son that looks up to Link.

The girl in the art is not the Master Sword, and it appears the Master Sword will not be in the game.

The girls name from the painting could possibly be Adelle, Adella, or Aderu.

She is not with you throughout the game like Ezlo and Midna.

The face in the painting of her is not her real face. It's not fully elaborated on much, but it does say that it was a place holder concept art piece.(assuming the entire art itself was just concept work)

Link's sword is highly unique in this game, and will have several unlockable abilities. Adelle (or whatever her final name becomes) communicates with you through this sword.

There will be horseback combat. Epona will avoid obstacles automatically.

The models for 3 significant characters in the game have been touched up, but no they are not Zelda or Ganondorf. (google translate gives rough names of Link, Gorons, and Epona, but our translator said it's not specifically mentioned)

The idea of this version of Link also being The Hero of Time has been highly considered, and may already be implemented.

Time travel plays a roll in the game.

The game takes place in more then just Hyrule, and may possibly not be Hyrule at all."

Crazy stuff! Do you believe it?

I find it very difficult not to get excited about even the slightest of Zelda Wii news but I have to contain myself. 3D Zelda games are the best of the best in my opinion.

I just need to prevent my hopes from getting too high in January of the year it's "supposed" to come out. I still have my doubts Zelda, Metroid, and Mario Galaxy are all coming out in one year. One of them will be pushed beyond, I can sense it now.

It's raining like crazy here in San Diego CA today. We are expecting around 5 inches of rain just today! For San Diego that's like "The Day After Tomorrow" lol.

Just thought I would share even though it's off topic.

Yes, it is very hard not to be excited over anything Zelda but I'm trying to stay calm for now.
