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.

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)
nrvalleytime  +   952d ago
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?
nrvalleytime  +   952d ago
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.
3-4-5  +   952d ago
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!
1nsaint  +   952d ago
And hopefully super smash bros as well :)
--Onilink--  +   952d ago
nah... no smash bros this year. Thats for next one
1nsaint  +   952d ago
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-

is this the windwaker remaster?
zerocrossing  +   952d ago
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.
Minato-Namikaze  +   952d ago
ahhh, thanks. Cant enter the site or watch the video at work. My job has a stupid firewall, lol.
--Onilink--  +   952d ago
windwaker HD is for WiiU, this one is a brand new Zelda for 3DS (inspired and aparently same world as Link to the Past)
Minato-Namikaze  +   952d ago
Thank you sir, But i didnt know I could get so many disagrees for asking a question, lol.
zerocrossing  +   952d ago
Wow! This is a pleasant surprise :)
josephayal  +   952d ago
i need
noxeven  +   952d ago
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
--Onilink--  +   952d ago
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.
Axecution  +   952d ago
wow Nintendo way to rip off of 3D Dot Game Heroes

animegamingnerd  +   952d ago
Drummerdude41  +   952d ago
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.
rickmodus  +   952d ago
Owwwwww yeaahh!! awesome
Thirty3Three  +   952d ago
Link looks like a baby...


(It explains the chalk!)
XXXL  +   952d ago
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
Nodoze  +   952d ago
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.
1nsaint  +   952d ago
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
--Onilink--  +   952d ago
so first you complain they are running out of ideas, and then you say you prefer a remake over a new game...?? seriously?
Theyellowflash30  +   952d ago
Yeah, I like the Paper mechanic. It can add to the gameplay
abzdine  +   952d ago
well it's finally time to invest in a 3DS just to play this game. cannot wait for the release
stloony  +   952d ago
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.
darkvenom  +   952d ago
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.
kirbyu  +   952d ago
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.
