Some information about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has been released, which includes whether or not the game will have voice acting.
need more images and videos! Good details though.. this game is making me excited...
agreed the game looks good
I remember the day I bought my Wii. I went home, sat down, played Zelda 50 hours nonstop until I beat it. I will do the same with this game. I'm so glad it's cel-shaded too. The more I play Wind Waker, the more it grows to knock off Ocarina of Time as my favorite Zelda game.
So you finally tasted the goods that is windwaker? Best 3D zelda!
Well, I might as well answer my own question! At one point, I kind of wanted voice acting quite a bit, but now I'm not so sure. Probably because we've never seen it in a Zelda game. One thing that I know for sure is that I would never want Link to have a voice.
Well, Link doesn't need to talk. He can still do his yells and whatnot. I would not want Link talking. I wouldn't mind other characters to talk though.
the two main characters never talk, but everyone else does, and it works well. They could do that,but no the lack of voice work does not hurt the game
Sounds Great, looking Forward to it. :D
Gah no VA kinda pisses me off, its about time at least the other chars get VA. Glad to hear Zelda is in the game.
Zelda is a franchise that would go well with good voice acting. Link can remain voiceless, but other characters and narrators need voice actors! =)
I totally agree, I loved Twilight Princess, but I would have liked it to have had VA. If done well, it gives the characters a lot more personality.
"-Not saying if Ganon is in yet" Is Nintendo *still* trying to keep up suspense over whether or not Ganon is in a marquee Zelda game? They're funny people. Actually, I think it would be pretty cool if Ridley showed up instead, but whatever.
I'm fine with a silent Link. That's how it's supposed to be. However, I think it's about time Nintendo added voice acting for the NPCs (as well as a full symphonic soundtrack! Zelda deserves the orchestra treatment!). Then again, after hearing the english dub of Metroid: Other M, maybe we should be glad there is no voice acting...
It is getting symphonic music, its already confirmed. And i think Samus voice was okai, the others however...
How about some details on how the game is different from previous installments?
Ganan will be in it. He has never been lacking in a console realease.
He wasn't in Majora's Mask :) But yeah, that is pretty much the exception to the rule.
And theoretically he wasn't really in Zelda II for NES, as you fight your shadow at the end. He is on the Game Over screen, but not really in the game.
they should give link a indian accent.
if they give him a voice. Adult Simba form Lion King is the only one I can see fitting him,or maybe Aladdin!
I'd be for leaving Ganon out. Zant was built up as a great villain in TP, but in the end was only a puppet. That diminished him, IMO, and kinda hurt the game.
You seriously didn't see that coming? Come on, really?
Haven't you ever played Majora's Mask? Fought Link's Shadow in Zelda II? Bellum in LoZ:PH? They set the game's events up as fallout from the succession of the thrown in the Twilight Realm. IMO, that's all they really needed, and Ganon felt tacked on; it's the biggest weak point in an otherwise sterling game.
"Haven't you ever played Majora's Mask?" My personal hope is that -- since Skyward Sword is set a long time before Ocarina -- the badguy is Majora in his heyday.
