´Zelda: Twilight Princess´ is now confirmed for a fall 2006 release, Gamecloud writes. Apparently, Nintendo of America´s Reginald Fils-Aime told a television magazine that the game was due this fall as a Gamecube title and that there were no plans to port it to the Revolution. However, the latter is almost certain to be untrue, since the delay itself suggests a synchronous launch of both the game and the next-generation console.
In their latest issue, NGC magazine reaffirmed their view that the game will offer extra features for the Revolution, calling their story "fact" and "100% accurate". Additionally, this would only make economic sense.
EDIT There is a transcript of the interview available over at Revo-Europe now. Here´s the story (formatting is mine):
Reggie: It's coming out this fall, it's coming out on GameCube. There's been a lot of speculation, people think we're holding it back or that it's gonna be launched just on Revolution. I'm telling you people, it's not true.That would strongly suggest that the game will either have special revolution features or even see a dual format launch. As stated above, nothing else would make sense.
SpikeTV: Is it gonna be on GameCube AND Revolution?
Reggie: It's gonna be on GameCube. The thing about Revolution is that it will take a Gamecube standard disc. So while it is going to be a title for GameCube, Twilight Princess, you will be able to play it on Revolution.
SpikeTV: So what will there be, will there be an add-on. Will we have a sword fight on Revolution or anything?
Reggie: You know, it's a great idea. We should talk to Miyamoto about it but, you know, right now the focus is really getting it out on GameCube.
