Leo Stevenson -- "With Nintendo’s willingness to farm out their IP to third party studios, I say the time is ripe for a From Sofware developed Legend of Zelda based on the Bloodborne formula."
Gawd...that would be so beautiful. If he could nail the setting and art style of Zelda and incorporate his design and gameplay it would be the best Zelda ever.
They are not that much different. the combat in Windwaker was pretty good. It just needed to be harder and darker. . Time to do away with the cute design? But they are too iconic.
They could outsource the boss to From Software and leave the rest to Miyamoto. That I could really dig!
They could have an alternate take on the Era of Decline, where evil forces have destroyed most of the world due to the Triforce being split for so long, weakening the Gods who protect the planet. Link must search for the Triforce of Wisdom being guarded by an older Ganondorf. Basically a take on DS1. Link chooses between reforming the Triforce and keeping it with the Gods, or taking it himself and becoming a powerful warrior. Several bosses are Sages who have become evil and take various forms, due to Ganondorf's influence on the story.
I guess a spinoff would be cool. There a many other Developers i would rather see a Zelda spinoff from though.
I don't think from software's formula really works with Zelda. Combat is such a small part of the game it just seems like a waste. If I was going to hand the reigns of an established IP over to them I think they'd do a bloody brilliant job on a new Castlevania. Bloodborne pretty much is anyway.
If they did castlevania they would have to make it so that when you beat the game you replay it from finish to start upside down
Yeah it doesn't make much sense to me for those same reasons. I can get how a Zelda hack n' slash can work with Zelda like Hyrule Warriors did but not a Dark Souls like game.
I don't feel that Zelda x Dark Souls/Bloodborne would be doing either series any favors. And before anyone complains about me linking DS and BB above, just know this: I agree with Yahtzee, from Zero Punctuation, on Bloodborne. To me, it IS just Dark Souls with a new name. You'll need some compelling evidence to convince me otherwise. But I digress...Nintendo has tried before, in the past, to make Zelda more about combat than a mix of many different adventure elements. It did work well, ironically, for the spinoff Hyrule Warriors, but I can't see it working for this combo. Given how different Dark Souls/Bloodborne is from either of those games, I sincerely doubt the mix of any combination of them would sell. You might get some buying it based off the DS/Bloodborne or Zelda names being mentioned, but seeing how so many people just hate Nintendo right now, you'd also likely see a bunch of people criticising the game for trying to be too much like one series or the other. (or for not being ENOUGH like one of them) In the end, I think fan contention over it being either not enough like, or too similar to, one of the two series being used for such a crossover, would inevitably stifle sales to the point where it wouldn't be worth doing.
So nobody remembers 3d dot game heroes?
