Tonight at The Game Awards, The Legend of Zelda for Wii U was confirmed for release, but another big franchise may be coming first.
YES, wasn't that much but I'm gald it isn't going to be delayed until 2016. Oh, and Star Fox for next year too. WOW.
Nintendo must have thought E3s are held in December
There's no way I'm missing Zelda WiiU. Most incredible looking game I've seen so far.
Man, StarFox, I wish is a new Adventures! StarFox Adventures was one of my favorite GC games, along with RE4.
I have a feeling Star Fox will be a mix between the N64 version & Starfox Adventures.
Good showing. When you add both trailers together you get a crazy manic robot chasing you and then you get the peacefulness of this trailer. Before I wanted zelda one or link to the past. They finally made a 3d zelda I want to play. The first trailer shows a very active world. The second one is approaching a dungeon. When monsters are present it seems the npc hide or take cover. You can set markers also. There is button sword play again also. Puzzles may be more action like and there isn't any cgi in this game so far nice. If you understand how challenging a zelda game can be then you might need those peaceful rides into the wilderness. It has a lord of the rings feel to it. I like it. This may get all the zelda fans to join in. It has that potential. Then starfox! Oh man before zelda! ? Hold on xenoblade is coming also. Wow rpg heaven. These are seriously some hardcore games coming out. Huge play times also. Then splatoon. Oh my! I got a ton to beat before march. I think greatness has arrived on another system. Now if cod advanced warfare finally comes to wiiu I can play it with ir controls.
Time to go buy Ocarina of Time 3ds, to prepare for Majora's Mask & then again for Zelda U. WOW....was not expecting this when I woke up today. * Those beautiful colors, that horse AI, the sword swing, arrow shooting, THE MAP.......Those Colors.... THAT HUGE MAP! * Glad I already have a Wii U, but this got me excited to finish some Zelda games I haven't played yet.......about half of them.
At least they went out with a bang with this part. IMO Nintendo's video was the best part.
Zelda is my favorite series of all time, and it was noce to see some gameplay, but that Metal Gear Online trailer blew everything away tonight. Bloodborne was amazing too... but dat MGO.
Forgot about the MGO trailer, that was really cool. There were a lot of good announcements for this show, i was not disappointed and it didn't feel too over hyped when it finished.
Was that Team Sneak?
Xenoblade Chronicles X Splatoon Star Fox The Legend of Zelda Wii U Yoshi's Wolly World Devil's Third Hopefully Fatal Frame V Pokken Fighters and more announced games 2015 for Wii U is already better than 2014!
And people say WII U has no games, here going this idiots now? lol
don't think anybody ever said Wii U doesn't have games. it doesn't have 3rd parties? yeah maybe but don't think anyone has denied the fact that the Wii U has games
I guess you have to be a Nintendo fan to appreciate the Zelda reveal - it seemed awful boring to me.
It's early footage, dude; of course they're not going to have a ton to show. They were just updating us so that we know of a few of the things in store, that's all.
the game is dropping in less than 12 months, how the hell don't they have much to show? that's no excuse imho
Um... early build footage? Just because they have something to show doesn't mean it's all that they have. Could be a Pre-Alpha build for all we know!
@torchic Polish before content. This isn't the PS3 version of Skyrim we all saw. And I played the PS3 version of Skyrim. Never again. -.-
@torchic simmer down buddy. You assume they don't have much to show when it is more likely they didn't want to show it all. Everyone is talking about how the world wasn't populated, but if you recall the crazy robot chase was something Aonuma said would be an example of events that happen in game. The purpose of the demo was clearly to show off the scale and layout of the environment with a taste of battle. If you think there won't be more to do and a warp option then, well, you need to take more time with your thoughts.
Actually go play through a Zelda game. Then you'll understand why we're so excited. It's a series where every game borders on being one of the funnest games ever made. Once a game has reached that level of pedigree, you don't need to have anything proven to you first. You KNOW it's gonna be great. Not just great... but epic.
Try A Link to the Past. That's the best one, in my opinion. I don't quite understand why everyone loves the series so much, but it's fun. If this were any other series, no one would care about this footage.
Are you serious right now? People have been freaking out over every game play reveal Cgi trailer that has absolutely no game play. Zelda was one of the few games actually shown being played! You guys love being lied to with these cinematic reveals that have nothing to do with how the game actually plays. Sure trailers are nice at first, but show actual game play and that's what they did.
It wasn't the horse and the running what was on show! it was the scope of the world, the size, the graphics, the wild life, the lighting, the crisp vivid art, the atmosphere! these are what the zelda trailer nailed! i cannot wait to explore the world and see what is out there! I just wish it zoomed in and gave us a proper full screen view instead of being off tv!! Dont be so dense, any person who has played nintendo games could see in that trailer that it is clearly the biggest game nintendo have ever created. That in itself is HUGE!!!! your entitled to your opinion as we are ours. For me the trailer was awesome and having them confirm its defo coming next year along with starfox is a big deal to me.
At least you understand what they were going for with this showing. Which had to be asking a lot, seeing as how secretive Nintendo is. People commenting on how lifeless the world was, Nintendo probably took everything out just to show what they wanted to reveal.
Watching a horse run while two legendary game devs ham it up and casually slip in another game announcement. That's my kind of boring.
It actually helps when you at least like the game series that you go in to post a comment about! That's a start, just saying... If I don't like CoD, I'm not going to the blogs to give my impressions of a reveal trailer.
nucky - your supposed to be smart enough to mix the knowledge we have, with your imagination to think about the possibilities of what could be. THAT is why this reveal was so exciting. It's like going from 2D to 3D all over again.
Finally time to buy a wii u and the show was boring as the last year
The only good moment of the show in my opinion, Koji Kondo is a legend. Metal Gear Online looks awesome too.
The Witcher 3, The Order, No Man's Sky didn't do anything for you?. I was blown away with those.
I missed Witcher and No Man's Sky[though NMS looks awesome from the last reveal they did, so I'm glad that is coming to PC], but I saw their reveal of The Order. It looked like another Assassin's Creed type of game. I wasn't particularly impressed.
Games looks beautiful and so much fun :-)
2015 is going to be an epic year for gaming. Glad to see Nintendo still has some fight in them.
As much as I'd like them to grow up and get with the times, they still make the best games. Somehow they're still lightyears ahead of the competition in terms of gameplay, and they exceed expectations consistently in regards to content. My search for an adaquate Ps4 game was horrible.
Good thing Santa is getting the kids a wiiu . ;-) They are a bit too young to play Wind Waker HD, but that darned Santa is getting it anyways! Oh well guess I will have to play that while they watch!
SANTA IS AN ANAGRAM OF SATAN!!! the whole idea of inviting a spirit into your home in the dead of night, offering him things for earthly gifts etc this is all satanic and has NOTHING to do with true Christianity LOL just saying, either way you will love your wii u! i have had one since launch and LOVE IT! my wife and 2 kids love it too! A word of advice after the os updates you are usually left with only 25gb in the premium and only 5gb in the basic. So long story short you will need a external hard drive! or just do like i do and buy a small 64gb usb flash drive, its small and discreet too and you can just connect it to a usb port at the back of the console like me and its out of sight! But you will need more memory that's a given. Also get Pikmin 3, mario 3d world, bayonetta 2(dont play in front of kids lol)
All Sail Hatan.
Ow that's so bad buying something for yourself and saying it's for the kids i wonder where i saw that before o yeah my own home lol
Just like we on gaf were saying, lifeless world, basic game, graphics aren't all tht. Just like Nintendo to come out with this and play it save. Thought i was Getting a wiiu Bcus of Zelda but was not impressed, another cut and paste, basic, lifeless open world game copying shadow of collosus but guess what! Tht was two gens ago. Again with the bs controls and cute art style to mask weak hardware smh And boring as hell but Nintendo fans will say it's the coming of Christ lol Wonderful and all u other salty kiddies suck a sausage. Everybody doesn't have to love these bs games. It dint hve to play shooters in have enough rpgs, Sims and platformers on my system of choice with games evolving not stuck in the past stop enabling Nintendo grow up already.
Dude, you're a freaking moron. This is early game footage; they're not anywhere near done fleshing out the world and you're already jumping on the hate train, then trying to cover your troll tracks by essentially blaming the fans who you KNOW will call you out on your bullshit. If you actually think the end product is going to be like this, that it's going to have that little in it, you've got no right to be commenting on the video. The controls are fine, the art style is beautiful, and you're just being a tech whore for the sake of bashing. Get back under your bridge and keep your head buried in the muck where it belongs. The rest of us are glad to have an update that at least hints at the future of this game.
I'm also not impressed... by your comment. I love Shadows of the Colossus, but you think this is ripping it off? You realize Ocarina of time featured open world horse riding 8 years earlier, right? If you really feel such dislike for this charming preview, maybe Nintendo products just aren't for you. You don't need them, they don't need you. Everybody's happy.
You totally lied about NeoGAF. I just checked over there and for the most part their community seems really excited for Zelda U. One of the latest posts is someone saying they're getting a Wii U because Zelda sold them on it. :|
2015 is not gonna be year of just gaming its gonna be biggest epic year in gaming history eva period 2015 hasm ore games i seen coming out that i want to own then all years of gameing combines in history
I wish Nintendo would quit making games I don't personally care about and only make Mario games. Super Mario 3D Land 2, Super Mario 3D World 2, Super Mario All-Stars 2, Super Mario Bros. 4, Super Mario Meets Ratchet and Clank Crossover Spectacular, and Super Mario 64 2 please. No more New Mario Bros. games though.
As you're posting in a Zelda reveal article..you're doing it wrong...
...and Xenoblade?? When are we getting that?
YESSSSSS A NEW STAR FOX. Now how about that new Metroid, Nintendo? *nudge nudge*
Retro has to be working on it now we know Miyamoto is doing Star Fox. And boy oh boy.... ;p
Having seen the E3 StarFox presentation... how the HELL will that transform into a finished, polished game by next year? I mean, full faith in Miyamoto... but damn, that was bare bones even for a tech demo. Still... AM HYPE!
It's not that difficult to turn all npc's off if they only wanted to show the scope or else they would probably spoil too much of the setting and maybe the timeline
Miyamoto is not simply human. His games are touched by the Hand Of God. Don't worry. :)
There's a chance they actually took content out of that early build just for the sake of teasing. :v
I was so impressed with the tech in the demo they showed off I just purchased a Wii U and Bayonetta 2, which also looked mighty impressive. I definately have overlooked this console this gen for too long :D
Congrats, welcome to Wii U. Also get Mario Kart 8. Warning: It's addictive. ;p
If u are a fan of classic games too its a fantastic console I got donkey kong and the original LoZ for £3.50 each I think but don't expect many 3rd party games thou
Thanks for the suggestion. I also got Fonkey Kong, and they bundled a Mario game with the console. I'll definateky get Mario Kart never played this, excited for Donkey Kong the last time I played it was on SNES :D
Going broke in 2015 will never be funner. ;p
Finally seems like Nintendo are listening for me the wii u is about Nintendo characters so I don't mind when they use the same characters over and over as long as they are quality games I've never played it but people want a new F zero? I think it's called (sorry if I got ur favourite game wrong like I said I've never played it) and I'd like to play one so hopefully we get that too. Side note I'm really looking forward to the toad game in January hopefully we get an amiibo with his adventure gear that would be sweet (if u are a big Nintendo fan and are not sure about amiibo get one they are so detailed even if u don't care to use them in game they are great collectors items)
I am so fucking excited! That's all - no criticism, no jaded thoughts... just excitement. I feel like a kid!
Dragon Age Inquisition PS4 is better than Zelda Wii U.
You mean the game that was released full of bugs and glitches? Yeah, no lol.
