“Make Your Own Zelda Flipnote” Competition Commences

Use the Master Stylus to Draw Hyrule

In addition to finally allowing Zelda-hungry fans to order tickets to the much anticipated Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert, Nintendo is also upping the celebrations with a brand new contest.  The aptly-named “Make Your Own Zelda Flipnote” competition goes live today in search of some of the best original Zelda-inspired Flipnote animations from across the globe.

According to a press release issued by Nintendo this morning, the competition, which closes on 9 September, 2011:

Invites Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL owners to create and submit their own animated Zelda Flipnote, celebrating memorable scenes, unique characters and challenging puzzles from across Zelda’s 25-year history. Using one of a few provided sample flipnotes, aim to unleash your Zelda imagination by creating an original animation; animate Ganon battling, have Princess Zelda being rescued or perhaps animate Link solving a puzzle in one of the many dungeons featured in The Legend of Zelda series of video games.

Each entrant will be able to submit a single animation which will be judged by key members of the Nintendo Co., Ltd. development team who have been closely involved in the making of The Legend of Zelda series of games. Mr. Takashi Tezuka, Mr. Eiji Aonuma, Mr. Yoshiaki Koizumi and the original creator of Zelda and Mario, Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto will be looking for and choosing some of the most original creative flipnotes which will then be posted on the Nintendo homepage, Flipnote Hatena on Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL and the Nintendo Channel for other Zelda fans to marvel at.

If you’re currently undergoing something of a creative spurt, why not try it yourself?
