Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

Too soon to jump, but with my (extremely limited GCSE level) knowledge of Spanish the 'Demon = Mallard' is the most sensible conclusion thus far. I'd prefer it were Ganon, but it seems more likely it's this Mallard fellow. Of course it could just mean 'Train', like us calling the Time Machine in BttF 'DeLorean' when that's the brand name of that type of car rather than the specific time-machine, but at any rate- as you say- it's too early to jump.

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

I agree; it's most likely just looking at the Spanish that that's his name.

My doubts are cast only by the other language versions...

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

I added the Mallard question to the UK Official Magazine questions board, so maybe it'll be answered in the coming week!

Or not until the game comes out. That would be hilarious.

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

They've been secretive enough! Sure some people are desperately trying to avoid spoilers, but I've never been one of those types- I've been desperately seeking them out!

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

I hope it's Ganon, and he turns out to be a duck-train-pig hybrid.

Yeah, I know I said earlier that I want a new nemesis, but I just can't resist the Dorf Express.

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

I think that either it's Ganon (from the bottom of the Great Sea, or reincarnated), or somebody completely new.
No Majora, no Vaati, nope.
Though it's probably somebody new. Think about it, PH had Bellum, which was just a generic squid thing with too many eyes, so wouldn't it make sense for ST to have an original villain too?
Just because it's "The Demon King" doesn't mean it's something epic like Ganon. Bellum was described as the manifestation of evil, and with the ability to suck out souls, and then it turns out it was just a stupid squid.

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

Alright, after doing a little snooping on the ZI forums, it turns out that we now have a better translation of the little plot summary that I Google Translated earlier. All credit for translating this goes to viciouskillersquirrel of ZI.

Page 1:

In ancient times, the people were guided by the spirits and peace reigned all over.

There was a terrible war and the cursed king of the demons raised himself up in power, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake.

After taking severe losses, the spirits captured the demonic king and imprisoned him in a dark kingdom, a prisoner in a tower surrounded by metallic chains over all the earth.

Many years of peace and prosperity passed... until now. The chains are disappearing and the darkness is returning once more...

Page 2:

It is morning and a young apprentice prepares to attend the ceremony to award the title of engineer that will be held in Hyrule's castle.

During the ceremony, the charming Princess Zelda takes him aside and shares with him a secret: the sacred tracks are disappearing! The Princess asks Link to help her escape the castle and that he take her to the Tower of the Gods so that she can meet with Radiel, the ancient sage.

The brave pair manage to reach Link's train, but en route, they are ambushed by brigands who attack Zelda and take her body. Luckily, her spirit manages to escape and accompanies Link to the tower, where Radiel tells them the terrible truth: Mallard is about to escape from his prison and will soon return to the surface.

will Link be able to restore the sacred tracks to prevent this from hapening? Can he return Zelda's spirit to its body? Only time and true courage will tell.

EDIT: Radiel seems to be a pun on the Latin "radius"
It doesn't make that much of a difference, as his name is still Mallard, but, you know, take this as you will.

So is a NES Zapper going to the light arrows equivalent in this game?

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

I don't like this. I was hoping after Phantom Hourglass it would no longer be an "ancient evil" that needs to be dealt with. We've had a lot of ancient evils in Zelda and Wind Waker was supposed to give rise to a new begining. I was hoping for a plot more along the lines of "we don't know what this is, we must find a way to stop it." Not "oh it's the ancient X of Y we need to follow the instructions laid down by prophosy #203 and collect Z to destroy it," like every other Zelda game.

Ya know, that translation doesn't say anything about a new hyrule. I'm just saying. Still, I can handle it if there is a new hyrule in this game.

I still think that the Demon King is none other than Majora, who I believe to be the God of Darkness. But I won't be dissapointed if it is not when I play the game. Cause I still have other theories.

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

IT'S NOT MAJORA.

I would love it to be, but it's not. It's 'Mallard'. We've seen nothing that looks anything like Majora in any ST media.

Re: The Demon King in Spirit Tracks

I think it would be really lame for Majora to make a come-back. I think Majora's Mask was a brilliant and unique game, and it should stay that way. And Vaati is really not a very serious villain, compared to Ganon. Demon King would hardly suit him. It would be cool to have a completely new Demonic force or something, but really, who else could it be? If there was an ancient demon king running around, don't u think it would have been mentioned before and not just come out of the blue? Its probably going to be Ganon somehow... even though I think it would ruin WW... Though, we haven't seen Ganon on a heandheld in a LONG time, I would actually like to see him, just not so much in this instance...

Wut

It was confirmed multiple times that ST takes place after PH and it was stated that the land is Hyrule.

Learn to put 2 and 2 together people. AND DON'T SAY IT DE-FLOODED. That is a complete **** you to TWW's ending.

Theories that are wrong, it would seem.
