Miyamoto once explained that when he created The Legend of Zelda, he thought back on his youth. He would go out into the natural landscape of Japan, and explore forests and caves. This sense of exploration is what inspired the Zelda games.
I'm intrigued go on https://encrypted-tbn0.gsta...
Idk if that was a joke but it actually sounds kinda cool haha. Atleast in my head
Badass idea !
Bigger world/more dungeons/bigger dungeons. Personally that's all I want. It doesn't need to look more realistic it just needs to be much bigger more of an open world game where the world is the puzzle, sort of like windwaker.
I like a big world, but it should not feel like it's filler. There should be enough diversity and enough to do in the world. That's what I didn't like about Twilight Princess, the world was very big but there wasn't a lot to do, which just meant you had to walk / ride around a lot.
Good point. I'm just stating what i'd like pretty barebones like. The bigger the world the more creative the devs have to be or as the player you'll get alot of nothing for a long time. So new mechanics could be added, more enemies along the way, easter eggs, secret dungeons, faster ways to cover ground, etc etc. What i'm hoping for might be alot to ask for but I personally believe it can be pulled off. Not saying it'd fit a zelda game but i'd like to see it. Never got to play Twilight Princess so I don't know if they tried anything like the above and failed/succeeded.
how about making it next gen.
What do you feel it would need to do in order to achieve that?
And your definition of next gen is... by any chance... graphics? I disagree if that's the case.
I'd like to see it step away from cartoon style graphics to a more realistic looking type of game. Also, I'd like to see a more mature zelda game, maybe a bit darker where characters in the story die.
like GTA mixed with Skyrim and Pixel Junk Monsters.
dark souls gameplay with the skyrim exploration. :)
1st person oculus rift version :)
You guys have nothing real to say. How about parallel dungeons that have you multitasking in multiple dungeons to finish them? Out of order dungeons like ALBW will have? New items, Outstanding gamepad utilization, Voice acting, Fresh story like SS had. SS and WW are my favorites, but maybe a darker vibe wouldn't be so bad to freshen things up a bit.
Cool ideas bro. Although idk about voice acting. Me and alot of my friends actually like the silence for some weird reason lol. And i know others feel the same way. And that multiple dungeon thing actually sounds interesting
I would be plenty satisfied if Link was mute but everyone else still spoke. Voice acting does wonders for story, character personality, and for me personally, immersion.
Ah ok i see. Yeah i agree that it would help immerse the player alot more. Picturing link talking is just weird to me tho lol. But yeah i mean anyone who has played zelda games before know about the speech bubbles and stuff meaning that the characters (besides link) talk. I guess nintendo just wont pay for voice actors or something? Idk:/
Make the characters actually speak for a start. This isn't the 90's anymore.
one thing i know wont happen anytime soon is nintendo can take away the constant music . . not that its bad music i love it but it tends to get played out in my cerebral corpses .
I want to feel really small in the game. Not like Minish Cap, but like Xenoblade. And I want it to be DIFFICULT. I know they have Hard Mode, but I want harder. I want to be on my toes for all of the battles; I want to feel like I can't win against the overwhelming odds. I don't want anymore hand-holding. I'm an old gamer now, and I want to be treated as such, especially with my beloved Zelda games.
Nintendo making fully voiced games?
If the level of detail in Mario 3D World is anything to go by, the next true Zelda title is going to blow a lot of people away... On 3D World, what was recently shown during the latest direct is a lot more complex than the build shown during E3... It's like a completely different game almost in terms of detail, lighting, effects etc... I heard that Zelda for Wii U has the largest team and budget ever for a first party Nintendo game. This has to = greatness. Their finish and quality control is unnaturally good during normal times. I think I need to see some footage... Come on Nintendo, just a peek?
Let me play as Zelda. Or perhaps a co-op mode with dungeon puzzles that require two people, kind of like the Portal 2 Cooperative Initiative. They can make Zelda an AI if you only have one player at the time.
What if they made the next Zelda game to be more like Assassins Creeed series ;P that would be cool
Don't try to make zelda like other games. make it bigger, open world but add that Nintendo twist to it. Amazing gamepad uses, add 2x the amount of dungeons or make the dungeons 3x as long. add 3 or 4 secret optional dungeons that can be unlocked via discovery or after side quests. Lastly add some RPG elements.
I can't stop going back to Skyrim, even the level of detail is a lot higher visually in AC3 for eg. I still prefer those amazing vistas you get at every turn in Skyrim. I don't want Zelda to anything like how the Elder Scrolls play, but I do hope Nintendo can capture their own version of a massive and gorgeous open world environment. It doesn't need to BE open world exactly, Zelda games have always been more methodical by nature. But at least provide a true sense of grandeur possible through Wii U's hardware + Nintendo's dev wizardry. Oh and looting! Maybe some costume customisation
