Some new information has been uncovered regarding Nintendo's latest chapter in the Legend of Zelda series. The Legend of Zelda: Mystical Seed of Power for the Game Boy Color will be released in two different chapters, the first of which-- Chapter of Gaia-- will be out in Japan sometime in January. The gameplay harkens back to the first few games in the Legend of Zelda series, focusing on dungeon exploration set in a combination of both an overhead view (as seen in the original Legend of Zelda) and a side-scrolling view (reminiscent of The Adventure of Link).
If you're unfamiliar with any of the Zelda games prior to Ocarina of Time for the N64, then you may want to visit our Mystical Seed of Power screenshots page. These screenshots should give you a good idea of how the sidescrolling segments of the game will play; at first glance, it seems somewhat reminiscent of Super Mario Bros.
