Cannot wait for this game! Does that enemy at the end remind anyone else of Beast Ganon from Ocarina of Time? He seems to have horns too.

Eh, how disappointing. Looks like people are cursed into paintings, instead of the other way around. Oh well.

Anyway, there are some interesting things we can discern from the trailer:

1. As much as it was advertised to be nonlinear, it's still going to have narrative choke-points like in OoT, ALttP, etc. And it looks to be the SAME formula--go to three dungeons to get three jewels, then get the sword, and only then can you access the other dungeons. Hopefully (unlike OoT) the latter dungeons can be approached in ANY order.

2. Link's ability to transform into a painting seems to be tied to a magic bracelet.

3. Other characters have been cursed into paintings--perhaps the paintings are linked to the other world somehow?

4. Zelda is a damsel again.

5. We've got another Termina-esque alternate-world Hyrule.

6. Nintendo has said that there will be "cut scenes." If you look closely at the titles that occur at various points in the video (like 0:23) you'll see some very nice art--if you look closely, you can see the Master Sword and Painting Link. Perhaps this 2D art style will be used in those cinematics, in much the same way that Wind Waker used distinctive 2D in its intro. It would be a shame (and unlikely) if that art was created exclusively for trailers.

7. A new evil, so presumably NOT Ganon. Maybe the creepy dood with the dreads? Looks kind of like Happy Mask Salesman.

8. The new world is Lorule--Low Rule instead of High Rule. Kind of obvious, but maybe it implies that it's a kind of UNDERworld? The upside-down Triforce has appeared in two other games. I'm not sure what to make of it in Majora's Mask, but in Wind Waker you could argue that it's a Triforce pointing DOWN... and Hyrule was UNDER the great sea. So maybe a version of Hades?
