Zelda Wii U Screenshot Analysis Reveals 14 Points Of Interest

A fan has pointed out all the things that can be gleamed from the initial reveal screenshot of Zelda Wii U. It’s amazingly meticulous, as you can see. There are so many things to be gleamed from the far distance. (E3, Wii U, Zelda Wii U)

Can't wait for this game it looks stunning. Im hoping this takes place before Skyward sword and is the story of the first link.

Just know Skyward sword was the story of the first Link and Zelda <Spoiler> however they were the reincarnation of the Goddess Hylia (Zelda) and the Hero chosen by the goddess (Link) so if you want a true origin story it would need to about those and the great war that happened in that age against demons.

That's the story I was referring to though they don't ever give the hero a name that I know of I think it's safe to assume he would be called Link.

I cant wait till I'm able to chop down all that grass and collect a treasure trove of ruppies. My goal will be to cut the grass of the entire world map, only to discover that the grass regenerates every 15 seconds lol

It's just a CGI trailer, though, right? If the actual game were in that state, they'd have been able to show off more than a 30-second teaser. It also wouldn't look so obviously better than anything else on the WiiU.

Aonuma: "Zelda Wii U Trailer Wasn’t Just In-Engine, It was Actually Gameplay"

Keep in mind the Wii-U is using PowerPC just like the 360 so games will continuously look better over time.

Hm... maybe, but that statement is still suspect as the trailer very clearly wasn't gameplay. At best you could argue it was a cinematic rendered in-game, but the camera angles make it pretty clear it wasn't gameplay.

@Xof

The first part where Link is just over looking the landscape easily could have been, the next part might have been a on rails section like a boss fight. Won't get a good idea until they show more.

It could've been gameplay with different camera angles. They would have access to the various camera angles to make it look more cinematic. Obviously you wouldn't be able to use those camera angles while playing. This is all just speculation though...

At the very least, it was in-engine and not pre-rendered.

If so, that's really impressive, but developers--especially at E3--have such a long and storied history of showing off CGI and calling it gameplay that I'm not gonna be able to fully believe it until I see it for myself.

This game is the deciding factor that will make me buy a Wii U. I will be hunting for Wii U sales up until this game is released. I take back all bad comments about the Wii U, Nintendo has been redeemed! Too bad they didn't have this game available at Wii U's lunch, it would have sold more systems at the higher price.
