Lol, why the disagrees? It technically is a PC exclusive since you can't mod console games... Regardless, this looks really cool. I own TP so I might just give this a shot when it comes out.
Thirty3Three  +   766d ago
You actually can mod console games.

Not sure where you've been hiding, friend :O
Snookies12  +   766d ago
@Thirty3Three - Alright, I should reiterate that. It's a pain to mod console games.

Not with hi-res textures
Reverent  +   766d ago
They don't even look hi-res. They look like pretty solid colored textures :/

I'd be interested in this, but I honestly prefer the darker scheme of vanilla LoZ:TP, which in my opinion, looks better than these "hi-res" textures.
TheXonySbox  +   766d ago
def not a texture expert who did this, but either way shows the power of the PC.

PCs can do anything.
With season devs supporting this kind of thing, remakes would be VERY impressive for the PC and its horsepower.
Yodagamer  +   766d ago
It's not high res it's the textures from skyward sword.
n4f  +   765d ago
its look exactly like skyward sword
die_fiend  +   765d ago
Still looks budget
Trago1337  +   766d ago
I wonder what kind of art style Ninty will go with on the Wii U title.
adorie  +   766d ago
I wish they'd go realistic for once. I'd like to see their take on what it would look like in such an art style.

WiiU tech demo comes to mind.
Trago1337  +   766d ago
They already did with Twilight princess, but I wouldn't mind something realistic. I do enjoy colorful aesthetics more.
DarkBlood  +   766d ago
we'll be seeing some of the assets from the wiiu wind waker hd so some clues of what the actualy wiiu zelda game would look like will be there

so dont go assuming the toon look is how its going to be before you go ranting at me lol :P
Deku-Johnny  +   766d ago
I'd rather they went with a completely new style, they've already tried realism and so many devs go for that style. It's better they be artistic and imaginative like they usually are.
Knight_Crawler  +   766d ago
I love Zelda but I hope Nintendo drops the Hour Glass and Wind Waker art style...looks like Nintendo just copied a pasted some Mii's a threw them in a Zelda universe.
diepdiep  +   766d ago
Imagine a Zelda game with "Okami" style visuals. That would be interesting.

Oh_Yeah  +   766d ago
They already did with Windwaker, and it's the worst Zelda in the series. (out of the N64,Gamecube, Wii games)
diepdiep  +   766d ago
No, just no.
trenso1  +   766d ago
what are you talking about im completely disagree with your opinion wind waker was awesome to me but not my favorite one though, that goes to majoras mask
Natso  +   766d ago
Worst Zelda in the series?

Are you kidding me?

It was easily one of the best.
NiteX  +   766d ago
TP is far worse than WW.

Eyeco  +   766d ago
Wind Waker is one of my favourite games, the worst Zelda game imo is Zelda 2 and even still that's far from a bad game
Jyndal  +   765d ago
Wind Waker was one of the best.
Majora's Mask was the worst imo.
Oh_Yeah  +   766d ago
Maybe it's because I played it right after Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.. I had high expectations. I wanted it to be like those games but better... Wind Waker just didn't come close, the cell shading felt out of place in a Zelda game, the enemies were all cutesy, you didn't feel like a badass, and by the time I got about half way through I questioned if I'm playing this because I wanted to like it because it was a Zelda game lol and that's what it was for me, Wind Waker is the weakest link..pun intended. Twilight Princess gave me what I was looking for though.

Reverent  +   766d ago
I half agree, half disagree. With Wind Waker, I found myself disliking it at first, based on how it looked... But as I got into it, it is definitely one of the best Zelda games. The enemies were fun to fight, all the new items to collect were awesome, the dungeon design was incredible, and the side quests were arguably even more plentiful than Majora's Mask.

I respect your opinion, but you can't deny that Wind Waker was a great game nonetheless.
NobodyImportant  +   766d ago
Totally disagree.
I thought Twilight Princess was the worst of the 3D Zeldas so far.
It was trying to hard to be Ocarina and just fell flat.
Windwaker was fantastic IMHO. I loved the sailing between islands. And I thought the stylised graphics suited the game.
Because ...let's be honest, Zelda has always had cartoony graphics. Twilight princess was never trying to look realistic was it. It was stylised of a fashion, semi-cartoony.
Windwaker just went the whole hog in the style department.
Zelda is not about looking realistic, gritty and gory. It's got to be acceptable for children which is what the Wii and Wii U are aimed at.
I love gritty hardcore realistic graphics as much as the next guy, but it just doesn't suit Zelda.
Twilight princess went for generic bland cartoon graphics.
Windwaker went for style and character and that's why I liked it so much.
nirwanda  +   766d ago
I thought windwaker was one of the best looking zelda's in the dungeon's but one the the worst in the town, I just couldn't get my head around how they could make the enemy's animation so fluid and the townsfolk so lifeless.
deafdani  +   766d ago
There's already a Zelda game with Okami style visuals. It's called Okami.

Williamson  +   766d ago
My first Zelda game I played and an instant favorite, looks good.
TheGrimReaper  +   766d ago
I've liked TP's original art style more than SS's ...

Remember the techdemo of Zelda Wii U?
THIS is what I want for the next Zelda game!
delboy  +   766d ago
So many gamers and myself included fell in love with the WiiU
tech demo art style.
It's just a perfect balance between a realistic and cartoon style.

I'm eager to see what art style they will make for next Metroid or Star Fox game.
Can't wait for e3.
Number-Nine  +   766d ago
This just ruins the whole feel of TP's dark etiolated art direction.
andrewer  +   766d ago
Indeed. Each Zelda has its unique feelings to transfer to the player. TP was meant to be dark, and SS, bright and colorful. I love both, but can't mix them. That's just my opinion though...
jcnba28  +   766d ago
I agree TP was meant to be dark so playing it with these textures wouldn't really make any sense.
ChickeyCantor  +   766d ago
Yeah it's badly re-textured. Same thing that came to mind.
MEsoJD  +   766d ago
Cool, but I actually like TP original art direction more.
MyNutsYourChin  +   766d ago
That's pretty sweet. But of course, it's a PC exclusive. Then again... hmm, I wonder if Dolphin will ever be ported to run on OUYA?
Qrphe  +   766d ago
With those specs, anything would be unplayable.
MyNutsYourChin  +   766d ago
Are you implying that the OUYA isn't capable? Psh. That's just silly.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   766d ago
@Veritanimus, So what kinds of games that the OUYA is capable of demonstrating? Graphics wise? A game that you may say is the limit that this console can do because its soo good? if the OUYA specs is better than a Wii then possibly it can. But if not it cannot emulate it. You do know that even though you have a strong PC rig, to emulate even just a PS2 game, it almost maximizes the the PC right?
MyNutsYourChin  +   766d ago

Wow, I can't say I'm not surprised... It's called sarcasm, bro. The OUYA wouldn't be able to emulate the aforementioned game.
LAWSON72  +   766d ago
Definitely going to get this when available. It was weird I had no idea the wii and gc version were mirrored
Reverent  +   766d ago
Haha, yeah. I actually noticed it right away because I actually bought the game for the GC around the Holidays, only for my parents to buy me the Wii version on Christmas (They are very supportive of my gaming addiction even as an adult lol). So I ended up with two copies, and honestly, I played through both of them and still had plenty of fun. The Wii version being mirrored made if feel like a different experience.

I Still Prefer the twilight graphics over the skyward sword art style. Because Link looks more realistic and believable in twilight princess. Im not saying I want it to be as realistic as other games, but cel shaded is more better in other games. There are many people who I know likes twilight more than cel shaded. But this is just about the art style im talking about not the gameplay. Skyward sword is one of the best. But I wish when the Next Zelda comes, Nintendo will take advantage of the Wii-U hardware
ChickeyCantor  +   766d ago
I've played SS in HD(1080p) and everything looked delicously good. It looked far better than TP imo ( eventhough I did play TP on the Wii, just that SS artstyle is given more justice by a higher render output)

CEOSteveBallmer  +   766d ago
Yes I can see the comparison. what I mean is no matter how beautiful cel shaded art style is. I still want a proper "3D" textured graphics style. its a fresh take on the zelda series yes, but I dont want them to go this art style again in future zelda games. Just like I said, give justice to the hardware of Wii-U by making glorious graphics. If your a good developer like nintendo then I dont doubt that even with great graphics, gameplay will still be awesome!! just like the mario galaxy games, its not cel shaded but its still beautiful to look at. I love zelda games. You know one time when theres wind waker and majoras mask, I wished that nintendo would make an adult link just like they shown in the gamecube demo. then it finally came true with twilight princess!! and let me tell you im impressed with the graphics for a zelda game.
Chrono  +   766d ago
PC does what Nintendon't.
MelonSaurus  +   766d ago
I just want an HD textured Twilight Princess. Skyward Sword's art style is not impressive to me. Twilight Princess nailed it.
bohemian 23  +   766d ago
My most fond memories of Zelda are from Zelda II adventures of link. Did anyone ever play battle of Olympus on Nintendo?
FlyingFoxy  +   766d ago
This is the thing that separates pc from console, keeping 1080p for speed but having higher detail levels in the graphics.

its not all about resolution, speed and 1080p is much better than having higher res and have it run lik a snail, detail settings make the difference.

Looks like Skyward Sword.
Jyndal  +   765d ago
I didn't care for Skyward Sword. Just didn't do anything for me. Twilight Princess was ok. I think I still prefer the overall look of Wind Waker, I'd just like to see it expanded upon.

On another note, I'd trade my left testicle for a full remake of the first LoZ game with TP graphics. ***drool***
ps3_pwns  +   765d ago
your games can be pirated and played on pcs when you make underpowered consoles like nintendo does. wii u will be on the pc to pretty soon lol. also zelda has been sucking get darksouls for some real action.
Menchi  +   765d ago
Looks... unimpressive. I prefer the original style.
