Hi folks, Newbs here. I’m back from my extended journey through the woods of event organization and prepared to tell you about two day old news once again.

Easily the most important thing to occur during my absence, and pretty much the most important thing that will happen between the 3DS’s announcement and its release next month, is that February 21, 2011 was the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda.

Link’s first outing was released in Japan on that date.

To celebrate, 1up put together a piece entitled “25 Things You Didn’t Know About The Legend of Zelda,” which you can read here. Note: that title is misleading, I knew pretty much everything they listed already. Your mileage may vary depending on how cool you are.

Someone also threw together this amazing piece of artwork to remind us all of the characters which have graced the series. Credit goes to this guy.

Of course, for a series as packed with greatness at Zelda, the celebration should really last all year. Two titles in the franchise should be releasing in 2011, so I think Nintendo’s got things covered from their end, but what will you be doing?
