Zelda On Wii U Won’t Be Ultra-Realistic, But Not Cartoony Realistic Either

The next Zelda for Wii U—the one that will allegedly introduce some much-needed change to the series—will feature an art style that hasn’t been seen before. (Wii U, Zelda Wii U)

Wonder what Zelda on PS4 will look like?
Wagz22  +   968d ago
So it will look realisticish?
mikeslemonade  +   968d ago
We already know that Wii U can't do ultralrealistic in this kind of game.
LOL_WUT  +   968d ago
So it won't be ultra realistic and it'll most likely be a short game... That saddens me ;)
ChickeyCantor  +   968d ago
@lol_wut,

Cause that implies shorter game time?

Wonder what Uncharted on Wii U would look like.
TheTwelve  +   968d ago
Uncharted 1 would look fine.
BosSSyndrome  +   968d ago
I'm guessing it would look like Uncharted.
stragomccloud  +   968d ago
@Boss, love the sense of humor. Bubbles for you~ :)

The Twelve seems to be trolling, as obviously any of the Uncharted games could run. I was just having a little fun.

Love the Uncharted series by the way, it's what finally tipped the scale into getting me to buy a PS3.

Obvious troll is obvious.

Try harder next time...
josephayal  +   968d ago
sounds really interesting but You have to wait a couple of years
3-4-5  +   968d ago
Totally realistic LoZ would be stupid.

I love how Nintendo's IP's actually have their own Art style.

When you see certain Nintendo games...you immediately know it's from that game.

Yes it's not as High def, but it's more pleasing to the eye than a lot of yello+brown+grey = realism BS.

Would look good but gameplay would be crap with the crappy contoller.
bullymangLer  +   968d ago
the same as on wiiU.
PopRocks359  +   968d ago
"Cartoony Realistic"?

Well whatever. As long as it has a unique art style, I'm cool with it.
gamer42  +   968d ago
I think by cartoony realistic they mean realistic, but cartoony at the same time (like skyward sword), So the new game will probably mix the realism of Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. I wonder how that'd turn out.
Pozzle  +   968d ago
Yeah, that was my first thought too. The Wind Waker is more on the "cartoony" side and Twilight Princess is more on the "realistic" side, but Skyward Sword is somewhere in the middle. It had a cartoony style ad color scheme, but more realistic proportions for the characters.
Tong  +   968d ago
Like smash bros Link, realistic yet cartoony
imXify  +   968d ago
They better not screw it up and make it like that tech demo.
MsmackyM  +   968d ago
As much as I'm anticipating the PS4, I'm actually can't wait to see the changes and innovation of the new Zelda title. I was fairly let down when it wasn't at E3.
jakmckratos  +   968d ago
Just let it look like the E3 2011 demo! It's perfect
claud3  +   968d ago
It is a mixure of the skyward sword and twilight princess graphics. So it will be a blend of near real but cartoony
Eyesoffiction  +   968d ago
I am thinking something like link from SSB4.
THamm  +   968d ago
I think more like SSF4, ya know that hand drawn oil painting over cell shading stuff
it will look delayed.

I don't think any wiiU games look realistic.

it will look like wind waker but with adult
TechnicianTed  +   968d ago
It will look better than your grammar. And I don't mean your Grandma.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   968d ago
Do I know what he is taking about... no.

Will I complain when I see the finally art style... maybe.

Will I buy it... Yes.

Will I enjoy it... YES.

(At 1st I was disappointed with WW and then SS but once I played them and got past the Space World Tech Demo before WW and the News Report for a photorealistic before SS (they actually changed the art-style of SS before we saw it but described it as something different) I enjoyed the game play and the graphics. Seeing things in motion, working in concert, changes my view of the art screen shots.

SS is now one of my favorite Zeldas in Gameplay and Art style- and WW has great graphics too.

I wonder if they will do realistic but then add in another Artistic Master's Style. SS was based off Monet- maybe Zelda WiiU will have some Van Gogh inspirations- or someone else.
Moonman  +   968d ago
This game will be beautiful. After seeing how hard they worked on Mario Kart 8, I know they will give their all to Zelda. :)
despair  +   968d ago
Less talking about what the game will look like and show the damn thing. I hate when they do things like this and we have nothing real to back it up. Imagine if Naughty Dog never showed Uncharted but then went on to describe what artistic style it would use, they would be laughed at, so why does nintendo get away with it?
TechnicianTed  +   968d ago
This is taken from an interview with Eiji Aonuma- http://www.engadget.com/201... -

If you read the interview they say -

'His teams are currently developing the next-gen title, but unfortunately it's not at a point where there's anything relevant to show. '

I'm sure Naughty Dog answered questions in interviews before about games they were working on that weren't ready to be shown.

Honestly,

With Zelda's Track record from the Original to SS-

If they never talked about the Next Zelda but one day Nintendo just says, "Tomorrow we will release a NEW Zelda game."

And if I got to the store and the box was black and white with not pictures on it.

I would still buy it on DAY ONE if I could.

Zelda has proven itself over and over.

Anything but cell-shaded
XXXL  +   968d ago
Tech Demo. It's really that easy.
DivineAssault  +   968d ago
I hope they dont mess this up.. That tech demo is what i want zelda to look like.. Not cell shaded or that cartoony look they like to use.. We will see i guess.. If it doesnt take advantage of the wii u's power, that will be such a wasted opportunity.. Only time will tell i guess.. One thing is for sure, it will be a great game regardless of looks.. But looks add to greatness so please dont screw it up from being a complete masterpiece.. Most previewers are already underwhelmed by all the ND direct games' graphics that have been outed..
Jagsrock  +   968d ago
I have no doubt it will look stunning and be a true showcase of the wii u's power. I feel like it will have slightly more realistic charcter models with a Pixar esque flair to it. I do think they should have chosen a different game to use in the tech demo though cause at this point I can see a lot of disappointment if they go with a different style a la wind waker.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   968d ago
All I want from ZeldaU is to be epic
