GameBlurb: Shigeru Miyamoto spoke today at Nintendo Q&A and he posed some put some pretty scary thoughts out there.
Best Zelda game? Uh.....gotta beat OoT, Miyamoto.
Seriously I was about to say the same thing. He must have high regards for the team to think they can pull that off.
Majora's Mask, dude.
Majora's Mask was great, but I could never get over the time limit thing. Played it as a kid and that was the only thing that frustrated me.
"but I could never get over the time limit thing. Played it as a kid and that was the only thing that frustrated me." Ever considered slowing down time =P. Honestly I think MM is better than OOT but imo WW beats both.
A link To The Past, dude.
"A link To The Past, dude." yes my favorite 2D game. I love the disagrees, WW is brilliant. Too bad no one else wants to see it xD
Twilight Princess is da best!!
Consider giving it another go then, dude. It's everything OoT was and allows you to replay dungeons and re-fight bosses without starting over. The masks also added alot to the dynamic of Zelda. Especially the Bunny Hood and the Bomb Blast Mask. XD
Have to beat wind waker in my book
Some serious hyperbole there. By that rationale can we assume that Other M is the end of the Metroid series?
Yeah, Shiggy should get his ass back to the GAMES instead of opening his mouth in public. Did he get some training from Ninja Theory while he was at E3 or something?
I wonder what the gaming world would be like without Zelda... Obviously the Zelda fans would be the only ones pissed.
So you don't like Zelda games?
He is a god character to use in smash bros but I was never into the adventure style of Zelda. Even so the thought of a major icon disappearing forever is interesting. Not like Duke Nukem. Or even Mario, with so much history and influence at the early years. Just a interesting thought to me about the outcome.
So Zelda fans would exist if Zelda didn't? Pretty hardcore fanbase.... lol
I am sure they would, its something they hold dare to them. No matter which game they started off from, for those who began at the very first game it would mean a lot. To me it would be like losing Dante from the DMC series, oh wait....
Misquote. Miyamoto said that the game better be the best Zelda game ever, or else that PARTICULAR TEAM will never work on a Zelda game again. But, hooray for misinformation! MORE HITS PLEASE
Then it is a misquote from Kotaku: StephenTotilo: Miyamoto says he told aonuma that if next skyward sword wasn't best Zelda then no more Zeldas
http://thisiswiiu.com/hd-ze... You guys really think that Nintendo would slaughter one of its cash cows? Come on.
hey nintendo how about less mario zelda pokemon and more new ips!!! just a thought.
Or alternatively, more F-Zero, Star Fox, more sh, Earthbound, Fire Emblem, Wario Land... but yeah, the one I'm most excited for is sh.
The hell iis sh?
How about STFU and let people enjoy the ZELDA MARIO And whatever. These games aren't the problem but what JM says is more of a problem. I want F-zero damn it.
Umm, less Mario and Zelda? So you want less great games to come out?
no no. im just saying its time for nintendo puts out a new ip. why cant they make a new one thats as good as mario and zelda. man i give up lol. ppl say sony and microsoft fans are the worse but they dont compare to nintendo fans. Really im jsut suggesting nintendo try a new ip lol. I guess playing mario and zelda for the past 25+ years with little change to gameplay is ok. sorry nintendo fans forget i ever suggest nintendo try a new ip sosorry/
there are great games apart from mario and zelda out there you know!
Nintendo makes new franchises. Some of my favorites were introduced just last gen which are custom robo, pikmin, and chibi robo. And I'm hoping Geist gets a sequel for WiiU
And where are the good new IPs for this generation? Sony has been pretty consistent with delivering new IPs on a regular basis, and even Microsoft has put out quite a few IPs in their two-system history. But what new IPs have come out on the Wii and been successful?
"But what new IPs have come out on the Wii and been successful? " wii sports and the mii's ?? Wii Tennis i thougth was very addictive. Tetris addictive. The training modes especially. Wii fit also, not that im into myself, but it was successful last time i looked.
Hicken you answered your own question. XBox has had only 2 systems. and to be fair when Nintendo was on System 2 they had way more IPs than XBox 360. if anything XBox 360 should be frowned on, because they created so few IPs and they're still considered the "New Guy". New IPs are usually made when you're new and trying to make a name
You really count wii sports as a new IP? As a successful new IP? IT GOT SHIPPED WITH THE SYSTEM. Of course it should be successful. Then there's the fact that most of those "new IPs" you could point to on the Wii are all in the same genre: Wii Sports, Deca Sports, etc. Hasbro Family Game Night, Carnival Games, so on. It's new IPs for the casual gamers. Nothing that calls to Mario and Zelda fans. Nothing to replace Starfox.
@Hicken It didnt get shipped with Japanese consoles. It was a game they had to buy. But i'm sure you knew that.
I've liked every Zelda so far, so I will probably enjoy this one too. I doubt it will be the last Zelda, as well as really hope that it's not.
Who cares! Too many Zelda's to look forward too. I WANT A NEW EARTHBOUND, A PROPER STAR FOX GAME, AND A METROID GAME LIKE OTHER M BUT WITHOUT THE DUMB STORY! Sorry for the caps but it pisses me off that Nintendo keeps on coming out with these......these.......mere shadow of their former self's games and expects it to sell by name alone. I'll get the Wii U but if they don't deliver the games then it's getting traded in.
the problem with skyward sword (and its a game breaker) is... ITS TOO FRIGGING LATE! its a year too late! you can't abandon a console for an entire year, and then release its biggest game! wii waa still alive last year, zelda should have been released then. aaaaaand, another year has passed and aged wiis graphics even further. the game will look totally shyte on release day. people said skyward sword looked old fashion 1-2 years ago.. now it looks retro. nintendo wasted this game. port it to wiiu, give it hd treatment, forget it was ever meant for wii, its too late.
The whole "wii " is dead makes no sense as its not relevant to whether the game is good or not. Your main complain goes towards the visuals...Yeah cause past zeldas are total shyte too right? GFX look fine, you're just too far up your own ass to even complain about that. Its a Wii game and lets keep it that way. I rather have a Zelda game build from ground up for the WiiU. There is no real problem, you are just making one up. How can a game, which hasn't been out yet, not tested on gameplay value be "late". The visuals? GTFO.
''Your main complain goes towards the visuals...'' WRONG- my entire response was about TIMING. i only mentioned graphics in one paragraph. put your glasses on. ''past zeldas are total shyte too right? '' WRONG- when did i say that? are you a ventriloquist? NO! so don't put words into my mouth! ''GFX look fine'' WRONG- again, you need to open your eyes because those graphics clearly aren't fine. Maybe in 2004 they were fine, but this is 2011. Gamecube graphics just don't cut it in the hear and now. you just settle for second best. I demand the finest! ''Its a Wii game and lets keep it that way.'' there's a big problem with it being a wii game.. didnt you hear, MIYAMOTO DECLARED THE WII DEAD!! biggest wii game launching on a console that the creator of the game declared deceased. yes, great idea, give this guy a award for great marketing. the next new zelda will be for n64 *rolls eyes* ''There is no real problem, you are just making one up. '' WRONG- sugar coating the truth isn't going to make it any better. big game launching on dead console= big problem. ''How can a game, which hasn't been out yet, not tested on gameplay value be "late". The visuals?'' WRONG- again, your ventriloquism is getting out of control again. listen and learn- the game is late because the wii died in December 2010. Heck, it would have been late if it released last year, right at the end of the wiis life. its TOO LATE NOW. wii is finished already. the party is over. its like a dj playing to a crowd, keeping the best and most popular record to one side, the crowd begging for it but still the dj doesn't play it. at the end of the night, the club empties, everybody goes home. five months later, the dj plays the record, to an empty club. heck, the club is not even open, its closed down! what stupid idiot would do that!? Nintendo is that dj, they missed the spot. TOO LATE.
Pcz how is it too late when they are not even doing it right. No one has crysis, rage, battlefield running 60fps at 720 atleast, but one one has it and it's called a pc. So if so if the ps3 or xbox where not late then you might want to get off your fanboy soap box. Believing people will wait on the next gen was proven wring with the xbox 360. Having a more powerful system means higher production cost devs don't want that and current gamers don't want $70-90 games. The wiiu is just in time. Devs have pushed this current hd market as far as it can go. It's time to get hd right and bring some thing new to the party. Yeah sure all of the tech has been seen but I don't remember being able to equip my gun with a touch screen while in cover in real time. Hey but if all you know is pr then just admit your a clone.
Im not talking about ps3 or 360, but seeing as you took there then... those consoles have a lot more life in them. yes they cant keep up with the pc gaming, but in their own rights, they are both still current gen consoles. wii is dead. it was last gen tech when it was alive, but now its last gen and dead. it couldnt be any less exciting to release a zelda game on a dead console. miyamoto declared wii dead, so there is no disputing this! ''The wiiu is just in time.'' as i said, wii is dead, no disputing this, ask miyamoto. ''Devs have pushed this current hd market as far as it can go. It's time to get hd right and bring some thing new to the party. Yeah sure all of the tech has been seen but I don't remember being able to equip my gun with a touch screen while in cover in real time.'' ps3/360 do still have some life in them, but yeah, obviously wiiu brings something new to the hd table. ''just admit your a clone.'' this is a clone account yes. oh, and im not a fanboy, im probably a bigger nintendo fan than you, so dont think im saying this all out of my love for sony/microsoft, im saying it because it has to be said.
I agree it is kind of late but if they bring the last story, pandoras tower, xenoblade, new kirby, and this all ths/next year early wii will go out with a bang and be worth buying/keeping. I hope we do get all zeldas n64-wii in hd, metroid prime trilogy and other m in hd i will be happy as hell. The wii graphics are super dated and horrid but il play skyward sword and last story to death man, i still enjoy em.
That is a pretty funny statement I don't think its possible since they are forcing the motion controls on us. If they had made it so you could do both then it may have had a chance but I am a zelda fan bought the 3ds and oot day 1 but I doubt I will buy this game its a rental or a discount purchase more likely.
I just want to play this game now. Make it happen Nintendo!!!!!
Until they bring OoT link back from the majoria mask dimension and use him all these other link adventure will just pale in comparison. Seriously I think the last zelda i actually dididn't feel like a rehash was wind waker but i disgress. if they decide to not making any more zelda which you know wont be true cause nintendo needs there first party characters so ya why we even discussing it
Whether it's a new link or a link from a previous game will not effect how good a Zelda game is. They've been following the same formula for far too long (to the point where Twilight Princess seemed like complete garbage to me...). The series needs a change...which they are acting like is coming with Skyward Sword, but we'll see.
Zelda sucks anyways so what it the point?
Lol, I've honestly never heard anyone say that. Zelda's quality is undeniable. While most Nintendo-hating fanboys will say they're tired of Zelda, I haven't seen a single one say that the series sucks, until now. Congratulations.
Zelda sucks? Zelda just had its 25th anniversary!!! Nothing that you are playing right now will ever last that long.
I buying this game for support and I love the Zelda series. If the Zelda series was gone...idk it just wouldn't feel right. But this game must have high standards if its going to be better than OoT and MM.
duh, if you actually watched the Q & A... that's what he says for EVERY ZELDA GAME. that's the exact quote. Basically the joke was the developers always strive to do their best(same team for all these years btw) because Miyamoto always says that. It's supposed to speak to his perfectionism in game design. It isn't a threat. I mean TP was not the best one ever but they are making skyward sword aren't they?
Best Zelda game??? Well, chances are that it won't be. But honestly, how many Zelda fans can actually agree on "the very best Zelda title of them all"? Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and A Link to the Past are my top 3. But if you asked me to rank those 3, i couldnt. I respect Miyamoto like no other, and i appreciate the fact that he is so passionate about making a quality Zelda title. But gimme a break, as long as Zelda continues to sell, Link won't be going anywhere.
Zelda fans are the biggest in the industry end of there everywhere m8 but im looking foward to Zelda HD isnt every1 after seing that game wow it eclipses ps3 graphics by a big margin plus it will have ninten super smooth gameplay at 60fps or more
