Wii U Daily has exclusive details on the next Zelda game for the Wii U.
Damn that's like soon, Skyward Sword came out in 2011. Between Twlight Princess and Skyward Sword there was a 5-year gap edit: ah, that's true, well this would be the number one Wii U game for me too look forward too then, this and Smash Bros. 4
Yeah but between the other games such as OOT and MM, then MM and WW etc, there was a 3 year gap so it is completely plausible for this to be released around that time.
Aaaand it's not going to look anywhere near as beautiful as that tech demo.
@FACTUAL evidence I think it will look much better than the tech demo. I think Skyward Sword had a fantastic look that was just held back by the Wii's power. That style in 1080p would be pretty glorious imo. Just search YouTube for Skyward Sword Dolphin for a sample.
@linkratos That tech demo shows how good the graphics could when it concentrates on nothing but graphics and animations. That is likely as good as it is going to look for a while. Normally tech demos are a step above game graphics for that system. I just don't so how you think it will look so much better.
@edgeofsins Not necessarily, twilight princess on GameCube looked miles better than the Zelda tech demo that was showen before launch of the system.
I'm a little skeptical after how disapointed SS was for me, they said that was going to be big yet felt small and was stripped of stuff which made past Zelda games so good.
Freakazoid why are you calling other people trolls when you get p*ssy over their opinion. Just because I found SS disapointing dosen't mean I'm a troll, honestly people just use the troll word when they come across somebody with an opinion that dosen't match their own. Why don't you try and maturly argue your point about why I'm wrong instead of resorting to immature tatics I just found SS to be over hyped and over rated for what it offered compared to past Zelda games. It was smaller, repeatative, you backtracked a lot, had the same go fetch me this quest most of the time and didn't really offer a good land to explore fully like you did with Hyrule in Ocarina of Time/Twilight Princess or even when sailing the oceans in Wind Waker. I mean other games got called out that year...Uncharted 3, Gears of War 3 for example because they felt the same as their last installments and that they didn't feel like they improved much and yet Zelda got a free pass even though Twlight Princess was a better game and made it seemed like they went backwards instead of forwards. So yeah...just my opinion I've brought up my points in a mature fashion...not something a so called "troll" would do...is it. "So from your own post history you hate Mario for not changing and Zelda for changing at all. Makes perfect sense" Way to exaggerate things...I've said something about Mario in like one article...thats all "Especially since the only games you speak highly of are PS3 games. You probably have never played a Zelda game at all just want to troll" I've just joined 3 days ago and I only have 59 comments...can you really judge me because of my comment history.
Would love to see a bigger and realistic remake of OoT or LttP. Thoes two are my favorite cause they stay true to that knight saving princess fairy tale and are more believable. The other games wonder of with weird worlds and creatures that aren't really interesting.
i agree carl wii zeldas were not worth playing twice and i played them all ocarina is still the best cuz that world made you feel like you were there.skyward felt empty the island were random and no one was on them.hey freakazoid when are you ever going to get your lips off nintendos butt and just admit nintendo has made bad games. i own a wii and a ps3 i can admit they both made shitty games. your such a sheep
Well Freakazoid, you've very little manners. I agree with Carl. SS was a stripped down Zelda; it took well over 2 hrs for the game to actually start (I'm sure I wasn't the only one who didn't give a one about Link and friends' adventures on Skyloft town); in addition, motion controls aren't my thing either.
-Those motion controls were just so heart breakingly awful! -I remember i had a dream that Nintendo released a patch to use the Classic controller pro! -To this day I still wait for that dream to become a reality... :(
Same here especially if it looks like how the tech demo looked like.
"The development is once again led by Eiji Aonuma, who has been working on the game with his team since late 2010." So holiday 2014 is 4 years. Plus this team is the biggest Nintendo ever assembled.
I wouldn't say it's too soon. The Halo franchises tended to have a three year gap between games as well. Halo came out in 2001, Halo 2 in 2004, 3 in 2007 and so on. Besides, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword were Zelda games in the same generation, so I reckon Nintendo would want to wait a while before releasing another Zelda on the same platform. Not sure if this is true or not, but it certainly seems plausible. I'm one of those who really liked Skyward Sword, but it would be nice to see something more "groundbreaking."
Correction: Halo games, not franchises. Derp.
The only zelda games to have a big gap in production were OoT and Skyward Sword.
Plus you gotta remeber that skyward sword was released close to a whole year after it was completed
2014 will be the year I pick up a wii U
Soon? ...It's like 2 years away. I probably only have like 50 of em left.
Hmm, Let's see what happens
Hopefully it does happen. I was more than dissapointed with the Wii U showing of marion, as it was Nintendos opportunity to blow us away. It will be a good game regardless (like the other marios) but I want them to shake up the formula more. I'm hoping Zelda and Metroid get an overhaul, it will be fantastic.
YES THANK YOU GOD... although I do hope they take the art style of the tech demo instead of Skyward Sword. Either way, now I know I will defo buy the Wii U
Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm speaking for the majority of Zelda fans when I say that the darker art style suits the series best.
Agreed. Twilight Princess has had my favorite art style thus far but I can deal with SS I suppose. Though MM was my favorite title.
it depends on the game really. imagine windwaker with twilight princess graphics, it just wouldn't work out.
Me too. By that time the familiarity of the hardware will be in full swing. I expect Smash Bros. will be out in 2013.
Cool but i was hoping for a darker art.
Me too. I want a Zelda game to look like the tech demo or better. It doesn't have to be so realistic like Battlefield 3 or something like that. However, looking how gorgeous the new Rayman Legends looks, I know Nintendo won't disappoint. Also, even if everything on the article is fake, I trust that Nintendo will make a Zelda utilizing 100% of the Wii U and will have revolutionary gameplay. The same for a 3D mario game. These two are their most beloved franchises and they always do amazing thing with them. I want completely new music for the new Zelda game. They did a fantastic job with Mario Galaxy 1 & 2, and I have confidence that Nintendo can do even a better job for a Zelda game.
Remember there is true hype and false hype
I kinda feel a little dissapointed about the Skyward Sword art style I was hoping for more of a realistic Zelda game like the tech demo. I guess I will have to see an official gameplay trailer first though
Since it will have better visuals; higher poly counts, better shaders etc. I think it will do just fine. They did a pretty good job with the Wii version. There is no doubt that the Wii-U zelda will improve so much over the Wii version visually. I personally do not like a realistic approach. You will end up in boring pallets that don't suite the zelda universe. IMO Windwaker shows the zelda universe beautifully.
huh? the best zelda to date is still ocarina of time with a perfect score that only a few games in the world got.correct me if im wrong but didnt they go with the realistic approach in that game?
