Shigeru Miyamoto has discussed the next console Zelda title, touching on the game's graphics and creativity.
Zelda is the biggest of big N's big guns. I expect the next LoZ to push the Wii to its absolute breaking point, just like TP did on the GC. But Motion+ will be the most important thing for this game, IMO.
but wii and gorgeous graphics? I dont think its gonna come close to anything we see on the other 2 consoles.
reolution = graphics! /s
The Wii is not synonymous with gorgeous graphics. Sorry, but this will be just another low poly glimerless game that tries to do what an HD console should be doing.
vhero -- The Wii absolutely cannot match the PS3 or 360 in terms of raw horsepower. Lower resolution and fewer onscreen polys are a given. But it can still make gorgeous games. Prime 3 is, IMO, proof that level design/geometry and art style trump powerful tech. And there's always Okami. SL1M -- There are plenty of very pretty games on Wii. If a high onscreen poly count is all that matters to you, we're never gonna see eye to eye on what makes for a great game.
Too bad I sold my Wii a year ago.
technical aspect+the art team I expect the zelda team to push Wii to its absolute limit which will be graphically good+the zelda art style=great graphics for this game
How about we put the poly counts aside and just ask Ninty for a good game. Rather than pushing more shovelware, it would be nice to see Ninty get back to basics and release some new IP with good game play. Good god, how is it that anybody can argue for Ninty with the trash they release these days.
" How about we put the poly counts aside and just ask Ninty for a good game. Rather than pushing more shovelware" i dont really see how Pikmin3, zelda, galaxy2, S&P2(and starfox F-zero etc etc) are shovelware. If we are to believe those games are shovelware then gaming is doomed. "get back to basics and release some new IP with good game play." Stop looking at mario and zelda and you will know this already happened.
I still very much look forward to playing this.
SL1M -- I think Nintendo HAS made some fantastic games already on Wii -- Galaxy, LoZ:TP, SSBB, Corruption, Battalion Wars II, Fire Emblem, both Excite racers, Punch Out, Paper Mario, Warioland, Kart, etc. None of those are shovelware. Not one. As for new IP...Battalion Wars first appeared on GC. It's a pretty new franchise. Same with Pikmin, which should show up on Wii soon. I'd like to see new IP, too, but Nintendo has more core franchises than they know what to do with. People are asking for KI, Star Fox and F-Zero, plus new entries for the "big three," plus new IP. It's a function of Nintendo being around so long; they've accumulated a buttload of franchises. So do they make a new Pikmin, or do they release Dynamic Slash in the States and Europe? I don't have the answer for that.
If it's not on Wii HD i don't care. Stop trying to defend standard definition. You can't see as much on screen and it isn't as sharp. I hope this game flops.
You have that the next Zelda game flops because of the graphics? Oh come on. You really are a graphics whore. I remember when gaming used to be about gameplay, not graphics. I mean... it is GAM(E)ing. Not GRAPHICSing.
Smacktard, He is actually crying over the fact stuff on screen will be less "sharp" and "less". Its not a gfxwhore mentality, its worse than that, this person just looks for excuses to hate.
You mean to tell me you want one of the most respected franchises in gaming to flop because it isn't in HD? I hereby consider you a fake gamer. So are you implying that games on non-HD consoles aren't any good as VIDEO GAMES? There are games that were on consoles last gen and so on that totally own games of today. Does them not being in HD make them less of a game? Should we not call these games great simply because they are not in HD? Lol What are you?
The developers were probably inspired by Monster Hunter 3.
i don't see how you get disagrees for that the zelda team did say they wanted to top MH3 in terms of graphics
Yer, they did say that Monster Hunter Tri intimidated them a bit and it will lead to more emphasis on graphics.
Seriously, how can anyone give disagrees on this? Iwata admitted that the Zelda team felt some pressure after seeing Tri. http://www.nintendoeverythi...
boys, boys ,boys... You must of forgotten you're on N4G, why are you surprised =/
Looking forward to it Nintendo!
Please release it soon!!!!
No point making "gorgeous graphics" if Kakariko Village is gonna be another ghost town again. Blu-Ray or bust.
I love how Miyamoto wanted to make emphasis on the experience and creativity but the title of the article ends up being "Zelda team "preparing gorgeous graphics" for Zelda".
"and we want to be as creative as possible for upcoming Wii Zelda." This is how it ends... Yeah funny indeed.
it was great that both the GC and Wii owners got to experiance the grand adventure that was the Legend Of Zeld Twilight Princess, altho i cant help but wonder how much better they could have made it if it was only a Wii exclusive, that being said this new zelda will be taking advantige of the new great new team Nintendo is speaking so highly of and the new Wii plus wich should make those sword fights that extra bit more fun, also i predict it being used for some interesting new puzzles, its nice to see that the sence of adventure and progression isnt being overlooked its the feeling of travelling across vast green feilds, wide blue oceans, and harsh deathly mountains u cant deny without that feeling it isnt truely zelda, all in all cant wait =)
With Wii? Not going to happen. And seriously Nintendo another Zelda?
Its been years since twilight princess, whats wrong with that? We've seen 2 killzones, 4 call of duty's and 76 Halo's since then. You can't call Nintendo out, they all do it and its not necessarily a bad thing.
There have been 7 console Zeldas. In 23 years. There have been 6 console GTA games (excluding expansion packs, PSP ports and downloadable content). In 12 years. ...and we actually haven't even seen a ground-up Wii Zelda, anyway.
". And seriously Nintendo another Zelda" F yeah zelda. Dont like it? go play [Game Iteration number million].
I would kill myself if Nintendo stopped making Zelda games. Yes, they are that good :)
I'm pulling for you Nintendo, I really am!
Pics or I don't believe it.
Do you think that's what people would say to Jesus when he talked about God?
^lol, that made my day.
Nintendo always emphasize on gameplay first graphics later... Miyamoto saying that it will have gorgeous graphics is really exciting!! hopefully will come out on holiday 2010
I'm dissapointed by the fact that the next Zelda will be on the Wii, not because I think it will be a bad game but because after I've played games such as Uncharted 2 and Killzone 2 my standards are much, much higher. In terms of the visual experience this will just be the best a Wii can offer, I might be wrong though. ( Windwaker still looks gorgeous. ) It's just that if it was made from the ground up on the next NEXT console it would just be better imo. But alas, graphics are far from everything so I will not judge anything yet.
Zelda games always rule.
Damn right they do! :)
Imo i still think wind waker looks gorgeous :/ I just want a new unique art style, a game doesn't have to be PS3/360 HD whatever to look "gorgeous", look at okami.
I thought all you HD kids couldn't care less about wii games. Yet you all pounce so readily on a wii zelda. Stick to your own topics kids. Last I checked this wasn't posted on PS3 or 360 channels. Also, don't forget. By claiming that graphics are terrible on wii you are basicly calling the entire ps2 library garbage. This includes god of war 1 and 2 and shadow of the collosus. And ps2 is massively underpowered compared to wii. It can do more then a freaking 360 so guess what kids, you also just called Halo and Halo 2 ugly as hell.
"bu bu bu graphics don't matter111"
lol i cant wait for this game to come out. i play on the ps3 but for me graphics doesnt really changes anything but the way it look. other than that this is gonna be one beautiful game for us wii owners
depends on what you mean by graphics. if you want super realistic graphics then no, the wii really can't do that, but there are other games, like okami, whos grafixs aren't super realistic, but its art style is noted by people who play it, as gorgeous. i also hope most of the zelda towns are also not ghost towns as well. i think OoT had more residents in Hyrule than TP did 7_7
