Microsoft's Phil Spencer and other game industry members praise The Legend of Zelda for its 35th anniversary

We're fans too, Phil!

The Legend of Zelda franchise is now officially 35 years old. While Nintendo has let the date come and go without any fanfare, others in the game industry were happy to heap praise on the series. That includes executive vice-president of gaming at Microsoft, Phil Spencer. He shared some words with Inverse on the Zelda franchise, which you can read below.

"Gaming has a rich history of transporting us to new worlds and on new adventures, these journeys fold into our own lived experiences and become a part of us. The Legend of Zelda is an iconic franchise that has BROUGHT JOY TO SO MANY PEOPLE over the past 35 years and is still going strong."

Plenty of other devs and industry figures shared kind words about Zelda as well. You can find their statements here.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD jumps to the top of Amazon's Best Sellers list

Link's still got it!

Nintendo revealed a lot of new titles for the Switch during their last Nintendo Direct, and many of them are up for pre-order at various retailers. Over on the Amazon side of things, it seems that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD caught the lion's share of attention from Nintendo Direct viewers.

On Amazon.com, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is the top game on the Best Selling chart. Digital code cards take the #1 through #5 spot, but The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is the first game to appear, taking the #6 position. The only other game in the top 10 is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, which comes in at #7.

Over on Amazon UK, Zelda fans rushed the online retailer to lock in their pre-orders as well. It appears that things are going quite well for Link in the UK, as The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD has shifted from open to closed pre-orders. Amazon UK has either already sold out of their allotment, or they've gotten too many pre-orders and aren't yet sure they'll have enough day-one stock to cover purchases.

RUMOR: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD coming to Switch this year

The more Zelda the better!

Wondering if Nintendo has some more Legend of Zelda content coming to Switch to celebrate the 35th anniversary? Rumor has it two more classic titles are on the way this year.

Both Eurogamer's Tom Phillips and VGC's Andy Robinson have taken to Twitter to share some insider info on what's coming. According to them, Switch owners will be seeing both Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD on the Switch sometime this year. Again, nothing coming from official sources, but it certainly seems more than plausible.

Hopefully Nintendo comes out and confirms this news sometime after March. It's like Nintendo wants the Mario anniversary to wrap up before they start talking Zelda plans.
