A Link Between Worlds Shows Promise for Zelda U

ZI writes: "A Link Between Worlds seems a bit polarizing among the fan base. Some love the rental system, others hate it. Some enjoy the story, others find it to be bland. Some love revisiting A Link to the Past’s world, others feel it is too unoriginal. Whatever stance you have with the game, that doesn’t change the fact that it could be painting the immediate future of the series, especially in regards to Zelda U."

I love the idea of having out of order dungeons again, as well as parallel dungeons. But, I really am not a fan of the rental system, personally. I feel like it really takes away from the sense of growth throughout the adventure.

I could take it or leave it. I kind of agree with you but it is necessary for choosing which dungeons you want to do in what order. Without it, you have to do them in order to gain the necessary weapons and progress that way.

BosSSyndrome1701d ago

Do it Megaman style where everything necessary is accessible from the get go, but further areas and less daunting tasks/battles/puzzles will be unlocked through certain item obtains.

Can't you avoid using the rental system?

Yes you can. It just takes some serious rupees.
It is a weird system to have To go to town to restock all your weapons after you die.

If you grab the bottle's early on and refill them with fairy's chances are you'll never fail.

I want a more mature Zelda game. Give link an adult look and some speaking lines. Not just the same grunts and sighs from ocarina. I don't want an 18 or Mature rating, but something a little more adult. Link should grow up a bit with the fanbase.
I think they can leave link between worlds on handheld. It was a fantastic game and doesn't need a Wii u update.

Did you read the article? It's basically saying that A Link Between Worlds progression for the series shows a lot of promise for the new Zelda on Wii U and I completely agree with him. A Link Between Worlds just felt a lot more free than previous entries and throws you into the action very quickly. I also ended up exploring a lot which is something I don't usually do in Zelda titles so if these are implemented over to the Wii U Zelda it'll be awesome. It's more important that the series pushes forward gameplay wise than just adding dialog and and a mature Link. Link is silent because he's meant to portray the player through himself.

Yep I did read it. And as I said earlier, link tween worlds is great on handheld. I don't see a reason to continue this into the Wii u. Some things don't translate well from portable to console. Resident evil revelation comes to mind. I'm ready for ninty to break the mold a bit with the next wii u.
And I explore in every Zelda game. Only way to nab them heart containers.

ReesesPuffs1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

No where in the article did they say this was going to be on Wii U which is why I questioned if you read it or not but you basically just answered my question.
BTW I love the profile pic.

I think everyone but Link should have voice acting. Kinda like skyrim where you choose the dialog you want to say and feel like your taking the role of link. There's some elements from Zelda 2 that I think would work well to change it up. Like the use of more magic.

The story it's incredibly disappointing, even the DS games stories are masterpieces when comparing to this horror. It's like it was written by a child. I don't know what to expect from Zelda U.

ReesesPuffs1701d ago

Doesn't sound to me like you've even played the game.

Metallox1701d ago

Maybe it doesn't sound, but I have already completed the game.

Zelda WiiU needs to be full of small things. I loved some of the mechanics in Red Dead Redemtion where you had to break a horse in order to ride it. The rope in that game was pretty cool! Would like some creative stuff in my Zelda please!
