I think a Zelda game in a first person view would be awesome. Exploration is a very big feature in Zelda games and its a shame Metroid is the only exploration type games taking advantage of this.
im sorry but i don't think so if i wanted a something like this i would go out and play oblivion this isn't really something i want for my zelda change things up go ahead and mess around with it if they want just not a first person zelda
This has been rumoured for a couple of years since oblivion came out.It wouldn't surprise me if the build a massive world full of stuff,add first person combat with motion + but have a kids/adult mode for sword play.
This isn't anything like a new idea. I remember reading over a year ago that at least parts of the new game could be in FP-in a couple of Zelda features in Nintendo mags IIRC. They felt that as the Japanese don't, as a rule, enjoy FPS that Links Crossbow Training was actially training for LoZ Japan based fans and NOT a twee reference to Link in the mini game itself. It also tied it in with Retro(US studio-MP1,2,3)working with the Zelda team on "projects". IDK how much truth there was in any of it but for similar to surface again so long afterwards may give it more credence. I doubt, personally, that they'd go for a full first person game-it's a huge risk when you consider they haven't let the wee fella even talk yet but shooting sections would be nothing new and an expansion on them , say, if the new Zelda was set way in Hyrules future would make massive sense-also a risk I'd love to see them take(future Zelda could be amazing)even if it's been the subject of a thousand Youtube hoaxes.
would suck so hard .
Why is everyone disagreeing with Product? He's absolutely right. There was so much exploration in the Metroid Prime games -- it was UNFIT. There's so little exploration in Zelda games, especially Twilight Princess. Zelda as a First Person Adventure game would work fantastically, especially with motion+.
here is some thing for you to think about. Motion+ works best in FP view. It is possible we will get a zelda 2 setup where the game changes to FP for sword fights. It would also be cool if an item unlocked FP for you to use in the whole game. I'm expecting a mix on top down for japan and the snes zelda fans, some FP sword fighting with FP sneaking, some over head game play also. Another thing is nintendo could let the player skip FP sword fighting and opt for a turn based attack. here choice would be your friend and what would be key to keeping this hardcore and a game for every one. Yet this is nintendo's game and they will make it how ever they see fit. Although it would be nice to work on this one. Actually I would love to see the snes style more with the style extended. It would also be nice to see a return to the nes grid game play some how. That is still a very fun game.
yeah, i like that idea
FPS zelda would be the biggest fail ever in the franchise. They should just move the camera closer to Link or something, but making it an FPS would ruin the game.
If it's all Miyamoto's idea, then I fully support it and I think it has a chance at being incredible.
I have this bad feeling Miyamoto just doesnt have as much pull as he used to at Nintendo. Hopefully this feature makes it to the next Zelda.
A Zelda fps would fail even harder than Twilight Princess did.
Did Twilight Princess fail? I think it's the best game ever made and it has sold almost as much as Ocarina of Time. I would like the new Zelda to be FPS with Wii motion plus.
yea twilight princess is awesome, easily one of the best games this generation.
Remake Ocarina of Time :)
Even though I'd love that, I don't think it'll end up being good. Ocarina of Time should be left alone! It is a classic that deserves to keep its value.
...i hope the entire game wont be like that though IMO they'd take a page out of monster hunter's book, with customisable gear, clothes etc. and co-op play maybe with others taking down bosses etc they could have you design your own character and such but im thinking though that if they did do all this they wont release it till next year so not to compete with monster hunter tri in japan aswell as NA and EU however i don't think a complete FPS is the way to go for nintendo also anyone else here excited for MH tri aswell
Well, they did say that Twilight Princess would be "the last Zelda game of it's kind." And FPS would be pretty cool.....and it'd be easier to use Wii MotionPlus too.....although in the end I'd rather them stick with RPG.....maybe a more 'The Elders Scrolls IV: Oblivion'-ish Zelda game. That'd be awesome!
Wait, no it won't. But do you see how ridiculous that sounds? That sh1t is what every single game must have these days to be considered 'good'. Completely asinine, IMO.
hmmm sounds pretty risky. when metroid changed to fps, i actually felt like I was playing a whole different franchise and somewhat out of place. i just couldn't understand the experience, so I had mixed feelings. people say metroid prime was a great game and I do agree, but to some people a change like that can take time getting used to. I honestly felt metroid prime wasn't all that great.
Wasn't OoT going to be in first person during the early planning stages? I'm glad they decided against it.
I think its a ridiculous idea. I think that Zelda certainly needs updating as it is starting to look a bit outdated compared to some other games now. However, changing the series to first person IMO is the lazy was of updating the game. We want expansion, not drastic change. Of course we can never tell how a First Person Zelda game would be until we'vep layed it, but I don't think it will work out.
zelda+fps=a complete ruin to the legendary franchise ain't gonna happen it will certanily not work,metroid prime has shhoting mechanics,Rocket launcher and puzzles,it worked well with metroid but with zelda,no,it's a bad idea
The first 3 Zeldas were something special. OOT reminded me of all 3 games in it's own way, and that was something special in itself. I have been playing FPS for quite a bit now, however, I have known and experienced Zelda(one of the gateway drugs) long before PC FPS genre. Zelda was more awesome when it was simple... I love Zelda, but I just can't find myself digging the new characters, after OOT.
im sure a first person zelda would work but i don't wanna see it. Just like i know cartoon zelda worked on the gamecube but i still don't wanna see it. On the ds cartoon zelda is fine, but for home consoles i wanna have a 3rd person camera with semi realistic graphics. That fake interview that was posted on 4chan about a year ago i think would be the coolest zelda storyline ever. It took place in between ocarina of time and wind waker during the time when ganon came back and hyrule was flooded. You would play as a guy who thought he was the hero of time, basically a dark version of link, and as you progressed in the game hyrule would become more engulfed in water. Man it sounded so cool.
Honestly I think Windwaker gfx go really well with the Zelda franchise. Windwaker is more magical than TP or Ocarina of time. To me the whole vibe is so much different from any other zelda game that i HOPE they make another one. (just like majora's mask, another zelda gem...=(...that one was epic)
I'm a Zelda whore...if they do that...I will rage... Zelda as a 2D sidescroller was awesome, Zelda as a topdown scroller is awesome, zelda in third person is awesome, Zelda in first person ...DO NOT WANT. >_>....in first person view you miss half of your surroundings...
give it a chance sid,nintendo knows what there doing.I bet know matter what they do it going be preety good.
Even if its a solid game, thats not the thing...Its just the way we know zelda...
man, you remeber me when metroid changed to 3d, i said it would be a failure... i was sooo naive... i would love a M+ FPS zelda... but really, it's easy to update the zelda franchise... make link jump and you have a whole new game... joking aside... you know what? i would like a prince of persia-like Zelda, with a lot of acrobatics and more stylish swordplay...
Atleast give us the option to toggle between First and Third Person.
it's 3rd-person view. Seeing yourself evade battles, attacks, while climbing and doing all sorts of movements, I prefer 3rd-Person. "Atleast give us the option to toggle between First and Third Person. " Wouldn't that be innovation?
I think this is a brilliant idea, I've been hoping for it for ages. I love Zelda massively, and I love both 2D and the 3rd Person games, but I have thought about this and I know it will definitely work. I do not see why people are scared to risk it, remember Nintendo know what they are doing, you just have to trust them, which you should, because Zelda has always been a triple A game on all formats (except cdi) this time will be no different. There is going to be so much more immersion to absorb, I personally think Metroid Prime was outstanding, if theres a comparison to be made in shift. New directions are good, embrace it people, we have nothing to lose, we have the best 3rd person Zeldas already made, look to the future.
cant wait for the next zelda..first person or not.. they should have two games
But I think diverse gameplay elements would be ideal. I mean OoT incorporated some FP elements, shooting arrows, hookshot. But I remember Miyamoto saying there was a reason for OoT not going Fp. I think for the sword fights if WM+ is included they could do what they did for punchout and make the character transparent. Honestly the possibilities are endless, and Nintendo's track record leads me to trust them with what they have planned.
I think it be preety cool.Nintendo knows how to make something differnt and still keep the core of old there.You don't get that from sony or ms that's part of why nintendo does so well on there own ips.
I hate the idea just thinking about it, but for the people who do want it ... the developers could make the game 3rd person and 1st person oblivion does this so why not do the same for the zelda game?
Hmm, how would you turn in first person in a game with swordplay? Normally the Wiimote pointed at the screen is what turns the character in a first person Wii game.
No, please dont ruin the zelda franchise by making a FPS. With games Like Oblivion, Elder Scrolls. Zelda will lose its uniqueness
Seriously Zelda needs new characters lots of them! One of them has a FPS control lay out LOL. Nintendo said they could easily do better than most FPS when a certain some one was asked about haze LOL. I sure he could but it would take him playing metroid and lots of quake to understand what it would take. Maybe nintendo will get hooked on the conduit's online play. That would be very cool.
