Princess Zelda

Twilight Princess.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is an action-adventure game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii and GameCube home video game consoles. It is the thirteenth installment in the The Legend of Zelda series.



Princess Zelda in the series, vary in age, appearance, and disposition. Zelda generally has blonde or brown hair and blue-gray eyes; she is often depicted wearing a royal gown and jewelry. She is associated with the goddesses Hylia and Nayru, as well as with the Triforce of Wisdom. Most iterations of Zelda also have psionic powers, such as teleportation, telepathy, and precognition; for example, she can cast spells and create or undo barriers and seals. Her alter egos also have their own abilities.

During the development of Twilight Princess, illustrator Yusuke Nakano tried to portray Zelda "as if she's wondering about something". He drew illustrations of Zelda with feelings of "hopelessness and anxiousness" and tried to avoid associating her and Link with "gloom and doom".


Yusuke Nakano.

Yusuke Nakano is an illustrator who works for Nintendo. He creates the artwork for many Nintendo published video games, or at least helps supervise the creation of art. According to him, before he creates artwork for a particular character or item, he'll sit down with the game's developers to help him determine what exactly to create. Because of the shifts in character design, it's a challenge for him to complete a concrete piece of artwork. Without a doubt he is one of Nintendo's primary artists.
