NE: "In a recent interview, Eiji Aonuma, the director of Zelda, revealed that he does not want to let fans down with the cut-scenes in The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. Aonuma has made it his personal mission to make stellar cut-scenes in the game."
Well, the one we've seen thus far was certainly a top-class cut-scene, for sure. I'm just wondering if there's any story relevance to it. It seems like the kind of cut-scene you'd expect to see at the beginning of a boss encounter, but the way he talked about running into powerful enemies in otherwise peaceful settings being a convention of the series, makes me think that this might have been just an introductory sequence to an enemy that we'll fight quite often, that it's not a boss but rather just a really powerful overworld enemy. To equate it, he makes that enemy we saw in that cutscene, sound like the Zelda equivalent of the Dragons in Skyrim; a really powerful yet semi-common enemy.
I'm pretty sure Aonuma said at some point that the scene we saw was not actually a cutscene, but gameplay played back with different camera angles (like a replay in MK8). If this is what gameplay looks like, you can only imagine the cutscenes. But it could have been a bad translation, he might have meant that the cutscene was in-engine.
He didnt say it was game play. He said it was "In Engine footage". A lot of games use the engine to run their cut scenes, Uncharted series, as opposed to CG cutscenes like COD and Mass Effect. All that means is that, at the very least, the game will look as good as that cutscene did at E3.
@MSBAUSTX you are wrong its actual game play footage, this is the link straight from his Mii Account on the Wii U, not a journalist website, but his actual Mii, here is the link https://miiverse.nintendo.n... now the Uncharted video is In Engine Footage difference between in engine and gameplay is that what we seen with Zelda is what we will play with when we get the game, while Uncharted they working on the game to look like the In Engine footage
@R00bot your right its all gameplay, here is the link from his Mii account saying its all gameplay if you prefer to read it from him instead of me https://miiverse.nintendo.n...
I can't wait!!!!
I'm the biggest cutscene skipper I know so I won't see anything lol, buttons will be mashed as soon as I lose control of my character or food will be made while waiting if they're unskippable. Max payne made me gain 10 pounds. I wish more games had interactive cutscenes using the games engine like skyrim..its just better for immersion IMO.
I assume you didn't play Metal Gear Solid 4, then?
No I didn't finish it Lol.
Just please release this game in time!
Since when did Zelda cut scenes ever disappoint?
Since Twilight Princess.
I actually liked twilight princess' cut scenes.. Especially some of the final ones, they were very heartfelt and had a good sense of atmosphere
Well then that's your taste, which is totally okay, but overall, they did. Some are wow! and others are meh.
Skyward sword had excellent cutscenes along with pixar level charm and storytelling.
The first 3D Zelda games had terrible cutscenes. The Twilight Princess ones were average and the SS ones were really good. This is great news for me. Hopefully we get a good story that make them justice.
GOTY candidate with or without cutscenes.Dat grass is enough...
Eatable grass btw
I'm more interested in gameplay than cut-scenes. Really curious to see if they change his sword play at all.
I am more interested in how they are changing the gameplay mechanics and format of the series.
My body is ready...
I can't wait for this game...most anticipated game for next year with halo 5 and bloodborne a close 2nd and 3rd
One year delay confirmed. lol Nintendo can do great cut scenes (See GC and Wii Fire Emblem) but I see what people are saying, Nintendo usually use in Engine Cut-Scenes rather than Pre-Rendered. -I usually like this because it does not false advertise.
I loved Fire Emblem Awakening cut scenes! I wish they did an anime of the series like that. I would also love to have a Fire Emblem game with Final Fantasy XV graphics. It would be amazing!
GC https://www.youtube.com/wat... Wii https://www.youtube.com/wat...
This game will move units! I can't wait.
This is the game I will get a wii-u for. Zelda will always have a special place in my gamer heart.
I see quite a few people getting a wiiu for this game but if I'm honest the wiiu likeup should really have the wiiu fling of the shelf. I have yet to play a Nintendo ip on the wiiu that has been a dissepiment. I was not a massive fan of the Wii but I really do think Nintendo have found the spark they gave us gamers with the snes, n64 and gamecube.
Uh... who cares? The Zelda games have -never- had very impressive cut-scenes. I'd much rather hear about the open-world design.
I'd imagine there are a fair number of people who'd like good cutscenes in games. It really would do to add immersion to the game.
