I'm only asking because I am not knowledgeable on these matters. However, I think many people take this as Retro working on a game with 'cel shading' ala Wind Waker...or even Skyward Sword.

And while people seem to put Wind Waker on a pedestal they conveniently forget the backlash such an artsyle had with fans. So there's an anxiety happening with fans of say Zelda, that want the game to resemble the tech demo shown and not go the 'creative artsyle' crap again.

Compound this with Rumors that Retro might be involved in the next Zelda game and viola. But if both games you mentioned also have hand painted textures and look gorgeous, then the worries are unfounded.

Whatever they're doing, its gonna be rad.

Skyward Sword and Kirbys Epic Yarn pretty much confirm for me that Nintendo uses art style better than almost anyone else.
