Nintendo talking about the Wii U Zelda just before E3? My senses are tingling...

Windwaker HD screenshots look great but I just hope they make the other Wii U Zelda look like the E3 2011 tech demo

I hate the obsession with "realistic" graphics in the industry today. I would rather they do something creative again.

I'll take Wind Waker graphics over Twilight Princess graphics any day of the week.

We have all of this power, and instead of using it to create new worlds the likes of which we have never seen before, people want to see stuff that looks like what people see everyday. I just don't get it.

Heisenburger1857d ago

Doing the same thing that they've already done isn't my definition of creative.

For Nintendo that tech demo was creative, considering the art style of most of their games.

Shok1857d ago

That artsytle wasn't too realistic though. I think the tech demo was the PERFECT blend between realistic and whimsical.

I would love for them to go with that style.

LOL_WUT1857d ago

@richierich Agreed

I also hope Nintendo go with the tech demo route it would only be fitting on the Wii U as it could show off what the hardware is capable of. They could reach out to a larger audience if they do it that way oh and ignore the guy above me. ;)

Root1857d ago (Edited 1857d ago ) open world Zelda? And by open world I mean GTA style, no loading screens...unless were heading inside a cave, dungeon, castle or house.

I mean an open world Zelda or Mario game can be done, if GTA, Just Cause, Saints Row can be done on current gen consoles then I'm sure this can be done on Nintendos next gen hardware

--Onilink--1857d ago

The type of open world experience you just describe is exactly how every zelda is already. If anything, the worlds lack interactivity and even more stuff to do, but they are already pretty open and with pretty much non existant loading times

Zelda Skyward Sword was NOT open world hardly had any freedom in the game. It was repetitive

I don't own a Wii U, but I'm interested to see what the new Zelda will be like if this is the case. Shoot, it might even push me to buy a Wii U if it looks really promising.

mrbojingles1857d ago

By the time Zelda finally lands on Wii U who knows how low the price could be. Heck, the Wii dropped from $250 to $150 in the time it took Skyward Sword to come out. Maybe the Wii U will be $150-$200 for you then. Like always, its best to wait.

PopRocks3591857d ago

Skyward Sword was released in the Wii's final year of support. That's a poor comparison.

Dark5tar11857d ago

I hope it'll have a style similar to Majora's Mask. I enjoyed how disturbing that game got compared to Ocarina.

AJBACK2FRAG1857d ago

Oh yeah! My favorite video game. Maybe a mmorpg?

Dark5tar11857d ago

A LoZ MMORPG would sound amazing.
