Take a look at the first footage of the new Zelda.
That camera looks a bit off, to be honest. Not being able to see his face doesn't seem right.
I'm definitely getting it but the 3D models look a bit too...round? I can't really put my finger on it, but at least it's not Legend of Choo-Choo: Ghost Train.
dainng . this looks like it was made many many many years ago . . looks very old school wierd casual . with a bit of witch-craft . almost feels like an unperformed April fools joke .. . shiizz mann . Nintendo with these mini E3's . . Content like this all year long forever?? woW!!
Yeah it kinda looks like a mix between the normal and the cell shaded style, still looks pretty cool though. Btw i love these Nintendo Directs, wish more companies did that, i also wish i knew japanese, so i could actually understand what the're saying :p
should do yourself a favor. If you have a wii or wiiu get A link to the Past on the virtual console, it's the best Zelda game out there and it's how all the older Zelda's were designed. From the sound of your comment you've only played the 3d titles (OOT and up)
Actually, I've played nearly all of the Zelda titles, minus Oracle of Ages. Played every single other one. It's just a camera angle that impressed me from the Direct presentation. The actual video on the Virtual Console looks far better.
Your new to gaming aren't you ? Have you played SNES games at all?
Not at all - still proudly have my cartridge ALTTP. And A Link to the Past actually showed more of Link's face than what I can see in this trailer. It was just a thought.
my mistake then. I see what you are saying but I kind of like the look, it seems to not be as noticeable when in outdoors but the overhead seemed more cramped in the dungeons. I like the Art Style it's like ALttP + Yoshi's Story + Shading
This is a clear remastering of Link to the Past with a ton of new features and a revamp of all the areas. I am pretty impressed. You can see clearly his home and the 3rd castle in the light world. I love the SIDEWAYS style paint effects as well. It looks like a good reimaging. But I do agree with many at the end of the day, we have yet to see a NEW Zelda, just remakes.
They specifically said that it took place in the same world but had a different story and dungeons.
oh man...this holiday 2013 is going to rock- new pokemon and zelda!
And hopefully super smash bros as well :)
nah... no smash bros this year. Thats for next one
^^ you're probably right, but they did briefly mentioned SSB for wii U and 3DS last E3, so there is hope :p Hopefully we will see some footage this E3 :)
Super Smash Brothers is going to be released Feb/March 2014 along with Bravely Default, Dragon Quest 7, Fantasy Life, & Yoshi's Island 3DS.. ^ Hate doing this but....Calling it now
ha haa had to re-post this Magic meter recharges over time. Hammer uses magic meter. Painting uses magic meter. World map locations are identical to a link to the past world map locations. Screen scrolling, rather than seamless maps makes a comeback. The 8 on top of the stones still looks like an 8 -youtuber- Different Legend of Zelda a Link to the past II Eshop trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I remember it well. Time to break the big guns out:
is this the windwaker remaster?
No I don't think so, it's a brand new top down Zelda game. The windwaker remaster has a very different art style too.
ahhh, thanks. Cant enter the site or watch the video at work. My job has a stupid firewall, lol.
windwaker HD is for WiiU, this one is a brand new Zelda for 3DS (inspired and aparently same world as Link to the Past)
Thank you sir, But i didnt know I could get so many disagrees for asking a question, lol.
Wow! This is a pleasant surprise :)
wait so they are gonna expand on there so called hero fails timeline if i remember correctly. Eh I loved link to the past before we knew were it well in the official time line. I have a feeling they are gonna do a lot of recon work. Also for some reason the game play camera angle looks way off. I think im just being jaded though
it looks weird on the video because it does not have the 3D effect. With 3D on it looks great
According to the report it's a link to the past 2.
wow Nintendo way to rip off of 3D Dot Game Heroes /s
Hmm i have mixed feelings. Maybe it is the nostalgic part of me that wants the art direction to be more like the original link to the past or the oracle series but i'm open to it as long as the gameplay doesn't suffer or feel withered from it.
Owwwwww yeaahh!! awesome
Link looks like a baby... ITS A PREQUEL! (It explains the chalk!)
A link to the past is one of my favorite games of all time. Can't friggin wait for this. Guess I gotta buy a 3ds
I do NOT like the new picture mechanic. This is not paper mario, this is LINK!? WTF Nintendo??? I am really starting to think they ARE running out of ideas. I would MUCH rather have had a Majora's Mask 3D remake. Just saying.
I think the picture mechanic will open some new possibilties for puzzles, much like the shrinking did for Zelda minish cap. Also I would much rather have a new game then a remake
so first you complain they are running out of ideas, and then you say you prefer a remake over a new game...?? seriously?
Yeah, I like the Paper mechanic. It can add to the gameplay
well it's finally time to invest in a 3DS just to play this game. cannot wait for the release
Wait a second....
So the brand new Zelda game for the 3DS is going to be a top-down game?! Are they serious?! I mean come on, that's just friggin awesome.
looks awesome,can't wait!wish they would make one like Links awakening,that game is my favorite,and the music was awesome.
I'm so glad that they decided to take this approach instead of a straight up remake. After OoT, the next Zelda game needed to be original. I'm okay with the art style, and the picture mechanic looks like a nice, basic feature that will add depth to the gameplay. They could have gone a lot more gimmicky than this. I'm excited about this. Pokemon X/Y and Zelda is a pretty good one two punch for Nintendo this fall.
Why does everyone think that A Link to The Past is Zelda's roots. It's roots is The Legend of Zelda. Although I'm definitely getting this, I'd love to see a remake of Zelda 1 with co-op multiplayer.
