Where All Roads Meet
A Legend of Zelda Game?!?

Please, oh please don't let this be a bunch of fanboys screwing around:

http://zelda2008.com

The Hylian symbols at the bottom of the page translate to gibberish when using the http://www.omniglot.com/writing/hylian2.htm , but it also might not be English. It may be a Japanese transliteration. Regardless, seems like a good idea to watch it till it can be determined exactly what it is.

What did it translate to?

Which using the Japanese translation starts out as オゴロミヲヤミルホミ. I don't speak Japanese, So I'm unsure if that means anything.

Then again, looking at the letter frequency and pattern, it might just be using the Hylian symbols as a direct substitution for English.

オゴロミヲヤミルホミ= [ogoromiwoyamiruhomi]

I am going to say it means nothing.

I tried ROT-ing both the English translation and Japanese transliteration, and got nothing.

Tried cryptogram with One Across, and all I could come up with was:

NONTNED?N?PEDTY?NED OPENED YEN?YTPTPEDTYEHED THEY NTYEPTPED?

CPCTCES?C?IESTY?CES PIECES YEC?YTITIESTYEHES THEY CTYEITIES?

So... yeah.

Yeah, the Japanese doesn't sound like anything I'm familiar with, especially considering the two consecutive ん (n) which really shouldn't happen.

{Five minutes elapse}

Got it.

It's "Experience the Challenge of Endless Adventure".

Caps matter. It's standard Japanese alphabet order, caps first, then a mystery character, then lowercase. So

a = A, i = B, u = C, e = D, o = E, ka = F, ..., ha = Z, hi = ???, hu (fu) = a, he = b, ho = c, ma = d, ..., go = x, za = y, ji = z.

Oh GOD let this not be a freaking joke. Anyway, Im not sure what to speculate from this. normally I can kinda guess what it will be. However, this seems like it could promote anywhere from a new zelda television series to of course a new game, and possibly a movie....idk

EDIT: here is a link but i think it is a knock off [url]zelda2008.ytmnd.com[/url]

also this is probably not made by nintendo because the whois says that is is from godaddy where nintendo normally registers via network solutions. Anyone know what ytmnd is?

It means "Your the man now dog" based off the first repeating website with pictures of sean connery tiled for the background and the sound clip kept saying "your the man now dog". Usually websites created with ytmnd logos have some kind of repeating quality, usually sound clips. Knowing that I do not think that it will help much in deciphering anything other then this probably is not done by a production company or anything professional.

Otherwise, I hope this gets off the ground. Zelda ARG would be amazing

Also an additional note,
it says under the tags that it will be a CG movie. But that is based off of other peoples remarks i think, no solid ground under it. Wouldnt doubt it with the image though.

Is the hylian text the same in both sites?

 HOLY S***!!!

Oh, my God!! Could it have happened? I've always wanted a Zelda movie. The closest thing that there's ever been to that was the crappy 80s cartoon. I'm keeping an eye on this one. Please, God, don't let this be a joke.

Oooh, this looks intriguing. The hylian text IS the same on both sites, and looking at the ytmnd creator's site leads me to believe that it's just someone excited with it. Could be wrong.

Also, what hits me as odd is that the hylian text used here is not the newest version used in Twilight Princess. Though perhaps it adds to the puzzle?

Nothing else in the source code of the page looks suspicous. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens!

could be an online game using the Wii too. Just thinking, maybe not. Maybe something similar to a WoW thing.
