You know how when they announce a new Sonic game how we all look at the screenshots and videos and think "Why the fuck are they doing this? That's a horrible idea."

Well, get ready for that at E3 with the Zelda U announcement. I can't say anything more than that. But us Nintendo and Zelda fans aren't going to live this down any time soon.

You've been warned.

Swimming is a large part of it

One of the reasons your leak is fake is because the Zelda fanbase is not a united entity. If Zelda U ended up being a 2D Zelda with wakfuesque artwork, part of the fanbase would be excited while others would be disappointed. So to say it will effect everyone the same way already makes you inaccurate.

exactly. You will get complaints either way, but really, the only way to make a female lead of a fun game, is to pretty much make them "men with tits". Otherwise you'd have to change the game play a lot to fit the character you are controlling.

It has more to do with the fact that everything was done just to spite Link because he's a male. He's weak, useless and naive despite the fact that Zelda is none of these things in the majority of the games, in fact taking an active role in helping Link defeat the evil he needs to defeat.

Last year, the night before Nintendo's E3 presentation, I actually had a dream that Nintendo announced a new Zelda game during their Direct.

It was bizarre as hell and everyone on /v/ was Wind Waker-tier angry/shocked by it. The game had an artstyle similar to fucking Steamboat Willey Mickey Mouse Cartoons, and was mostly in black and white with a greenish tint to the whole thing. Somewhat like a gameboy game, but with much cleaner Ducktails Remastered looking graphics. The game was a sidescroller, and played like a spiritual successor to Zelda 2, with the world map and transition to the action gameplay with Link doing pogostick swordhops and stuff.

I'd still play it though.

There could be a multiplayer mode that is Ganon VS Zelda.

So why do people want a female main character?
Do they not understand that the series is about the ancestry line of Link inheriting the triforce of courage, then mustering up their own courage to save the kingdom?
Why would anyone want to play as someone with the triforce of wisdom (Zelda's line) and sit around doing nothing?

Yeah, I've always wondered about that. It has never been a problem for me to play with female protags, but I do think that shoehorning a female link would make me feel just as uncomfortable as the idea of playing with a male Samus.

It's just pointless and goes against established core design. Why are women, who in my day hated all games or at least 99.9% of them did and faggots so fucking whiney.

I wasn't judging it, I was just pointing out that gender swapping is when the actual gender of the person changes. If Link would have turned into a girl, then it's a gender swap.

In this case, they just switch roles. Zelda becomes the hero / adventurer, and Link the royalty in need of rescue.
>>
>>246758350
With the exception of the sniper that actually doesn't look too bad. Switch the sniper to a pole and I'd give it a go.
>>
>>246768891
It's not a bad concept, but I'm 100% sure Nintendo could find a way to fuck it up beyond oblivion.

The only legitimate looking leak we've gotten on /v/ in the past couple weeks is that Mario Maker one from yesterday.

Everything else is some blurry picture of a TV screen.

For Zelda, I hope we're getting a game that ends the Hero of Time's story, taking place after Majora's Mask, but before Twilight Princess.

But we already have Dark Souls. :/

Ok, here's my problem with the Zelda franchise as it exists today. Up until Twilight princess all the main series titles (that is no GBC/GBA/DS) each game has been completely different from the last. Each one used a unique art style up until TP.

I think Twilight princess was a good game, but it did mark the beginning of the franchise's backslide.
The game's core "idea" seems to be "Be as much like OOT" as possible. There are notes of a much more ambitious goal left in the game, like the pitifully small twilight-dungeon, Zant being the villain rather than Ganon, and the darker tone to the game, but the game never sees these themes through.

If you watch the trailer for TP which everyone jizzed over you see them selling these 'epic' and 'dark' themes very strongly, so I feel like they were going to make a very distinct game but they decided not to.

Skyward sword on the other hand, is just absolute garbage. If you liked it, then you forgave it for throwing out all the elements that stayed core to zelda up until this point.

Let's go down the list:
*Completely Linear
*Nags you more than any Zelda game
*Glaring bugs left in the game like resetting all the item descriptions on pickup every time you restart, and if it's intended, then god help Nintendo.
*Game railroads you with no good in-game reason, most of the time Fi just says "WAIT MASTER, WE SHOULD GO HERE FIRST"
*Fi is in it.

You kill any sense of adventure if you're being led around by the hand. What was once an epic journey becomes a scavenger hunt with your mom watching from the porch to make sure you don't hurt yourself.

So TL;DR
The new Zelda game will suck unless they remember what it means to be a Zelda game and make it completely different, while still giving us the opportunity to feel like we're exploring discovering that new world.
>>
>>246769852
I think zelda needs to go big like TP but with hd graphics etc. to really make an impact. SS suffered from having a small world and extremely linear overworld. I think the next zelda should be like OOT but with a larger world and graphics like the tech demo they showed.
>>
>>246769947
Nah, it's not like what I had in mind. 64 is great, it's the only proper Doom III out there, but it's nothing like Zelda.
>>
>>246770245
>*Glaring bugs left in the game like resetting all the item descriptions on pickup every time you restart, and if it's intended, then god help Nintendo.
Considering that this was a repeat of what happened with rupees in TP, it must've been intentional, sadly. It's so bad I don't really consider SS playable without codes.
>>
>>246770609
I think it's fixed in Hero mode, but after getting through 30 minutes of tutorial and still being led around, getting 5 hints for every puzzle I didn't want to play. My brother beat it and said it was meh. I can't bring myself to play it even though I love the art style.
>>
>>246747789
I remember when people hated Wind Waker when it was first announced.

And now it's considered to be one of the best games in the franchise.

>>246770246
That's sort of what I've been thinking. I think that should we be getting a sequel to Majora's Mask, it'll probably feel like a darker game. But I don't think it should feel as gloomy as Twilight Princess, with all the brown and bloom. The tech demo is the style I want them to go with, for sure.

I'd like to see the return of Navi, and to watch the Hero of Time's story end. I'd also like to see them try to further expand on the origins of the darker magic in the series, like Majora's Mask, Demise, Lorule, Dark Link, the upside-down Triforce (I haven't played ALBW, so I don't know if they expand upon any of this stuff).
>>
>>246770927
Fuck hero mode. I hated starting that up and seeing that they put a message in to acknowledge that you've already done the tutorial shit, but that you should do it a gain anyway. They should've given you an option to skip straight to the first time you go beneath the clouds.
>>
I recently replayed TP and the biggest issue I had was the opening. It takes about an hour and thirty minutes to even get to the first dungeon. After that the game is ok. Not a fan of the bug hunting shit as the wolf.
>>
>>246771394
I enjoy being able to see what Link's life is like prior to the game, and I don't even mind replaying it, but they really should give you a NG+ option to skip that shit.
>>
>>246769653
>Super Princess Peach
It was okay, just not that impressive overall.

The PMS powers granted by the magic dildo rod were kind of pushing it, though.
>>
>>246771040
Agreed. I'm waiting to see if they actually give you a long enough leash to do some adventuring this time. If Nintendo were making record profits I wouldn't be as hopeful as I am. The change their company is going through may be reflected in their development.

I think they need to just make it a fun game to play again. SS was fun the first time but trying to play it again just reveals how it's basically a one trick pony. They need to make it fun to ride your horse around like in red dead and make it fun to go through dungeons etc. without having to hear a fi type character bug you every five seconds about trying to find a piece of a key or something etc. They need to get over this attitude that people don't want a game that confuses them at times or doesn't just explicitly tell you what to do every five seconds. The feeling I get when I play lttp is what I want from another zelda game.

Looking at Link's life in the opening was fine and all. The wolf segment in the opening just seemed to drag on. I didn't mind the wolf power but only when you could do it at will after the master sword. Before that it was awful.

>>
>>246772305
When I played that game I was used to the newer zeldas so it didnt even occur to me that exploring was necessary for items and that there were even items outside of dungeons so I had to use a guide to find the ice rod. `Even though it confused me it just makes the world feel more alive and less that its just a world to get you from dungeon a to dungeon b.

You mean as if they eagerly wanted to shove 1st person into your face without any substance attached?
Well they wouldn't have this "gimmick" [well implemented 1st person aspect] in the first place had 3rd person worked out. Which they tried.
http://imgur.com/RhmVbXQ
Didn't work. They used scrapped 1st person engine mechanics from an early stage in the game when it was all 1st person, and implemented them into a better solution for aiming projectile weapons.

It confounds me how invalidly cynical this place is sometimes. Never any consideration to the creative process of design. Just attaching assumptions to face value.
>>
>>246772710
You didn't 'have' to use a guide for the ice rod because you can complete the game perfectly fine without it, which I also like. it's just there because it's fun.
>>
>>246773030
How do you defeat the two headed boss without the ice rod?
>>
>>246773030
It's required to beat Trinexx, so no, it isn't optional. You do have to find the ice rod to complete the game.
>>
>>246771974
wasn't that the exact point of A Link Between Worlds? I played it and i couldn't put it down until completion.

Wasn't the hardest dungeons in the Zelda series, but for the most part, they made you actively think, not filled with obvious puzzles, The satisfying click in your head was back.

>>246773868
I recommend highly. Of all the "gimmicks" the Zelda series has used, attaching to walls in this game was one of the most fun and well used.
At the least, that game is a great step in the right direction.

Worst case scenario even if the reveal is underwhelming as Nintendo has done lately, in a few short months they'll reveal information and a new trailer and it'll be a GOTY contender. Though 2014's been pretty tepid in terms of releases anyway.

Does the 3d get used well or is it kinda not important.
>>
>>246774205

Yeah. It was crazy how many times I'd be like "damn, i have no idea what the fuck to do here" and I'd ponder over it only to realize that i can fucking turn into a wall painting.

This game had a lot of good puzzles though, and it had some great boss fights too. The Temple of Darkness fight was great.
>>
>>246774346
It looks really good in 3D.

Compared to previous "2D" Zeldas where there'd be transition screens between floors, you can see other floors from where you're standing like in a 3D Zelda.

Like if Link is standing on a wire grate, he'll see the floor below him, useful for dungeons that require you to drop through holes.

There's really nothing on the same level as the perspective puzzles in 3D Land. Deliberate since Aonuma didn't want to inhibit 2DS users and people that preferred playing in 2D.
>>
>>246772250

i thought that at first too but now that i know where all the stupid bugs are i can breeze through them super easy. thank god too, it really was the worst part of the game. that and the fact that most of the items don't get used after their dungeon.

>>246774346
If you refer to the ability to attach to a wall, yes extremely. It's the best part of the game. It made puzzles more complex and made you want to explore the LTTP world more.

If you're referring just 3d in general from the 3ds, yes I also got satisfaction from sliding it up more at some higher up points with lots of depth.
There's one place in particular which used it well.
All in all, the LTTP overworld added with a slight 3d depth gave it a proper, lively feel.
>>
>>246774346
The usual.
When I used it it was amazing, but it hurt my eyes after 5 minute stretches so I would turn it off.
Most of the time I would switch it on for a few seconds for a cool looking room just to see what it looks like. Towers+3D in the game are a must to see.
>>
People have not liked a Zelda reveal in years. Look at the goddamn fuss over Dynasty Zeldas and Link's damn scarf. Do you really think the fandom would behave themselves if Link never wore that dopy hat and wore armor rather than the tunic?

Actually, I'm beginning to wonder if someone at Nintendo is intentionally poking fun at the more obsessive fan desires that keep popping up. People wanted a dark mature Link at one point and we got TP. People wanted more focus on the story, being able to swing your sword and fighting giant bosses like in Shadow of Colossus, and we got SS. Now everyone keeps talking about how they'd like more difficult enemies and combat is Zelda games. Guess what annoyance will be in the new Wii U title?

The reaction was bad because people expected a more realistic Zelda after MM and a Game Cube tech demo.

The result was a timeless example of how judging a book by it's cover is a bad idea with video games.

Wind Waker is one of the most beloved games in Nintendo's entire history, and certainly one of my favorite Zelda games.

My Dad works at Nintendo and the new Zelda game looks like one of the greatest games of all time, so there's nothing to worry about, guys.

Ok bitches let settle this once and all.

What should Zelda have to make everyone satisfied?

>>246785410
Nothing will make everyone satisfied.

>>246785410
Just make it about exploration again

The rest of fucking Hyrule. We usually play in like 5% of that shit
The lost woods, Kakariko Village, the Zora Domain, and Death Mountain all fit in the original Zelda's map. Here that map is, with those landmarks, laid across Zelda II's map.

>>246785920
for most of the series history it was ambiguous whether the games are meant to be 'visual metaphor' in terms of scale or not, in recent games and secondary media they've been moving pretty certainly to a concept of the whole of Hyrule proper as precisely what we have seen in the games, with the Zelda II expanded Hyrule being the consequence of massive expansion during the 'Golden Age' (when they had full control of the triforce). referring to it explicitly as 'tiny' and 'hermit kingdom'.
>>
>>246786410
>same scale
I don't think you get it.

What's important here is number of details and things per however many number of tiles, not how many made up miles those tiles take up.

I could make an overworld and say it's the size of Jupiter, but it wouldn't mean anything if it wasn't as dense.

Everything bloating up into giant stuff while you traverse the overworld makes your comparison meaningless
>>
>>246786812
Except the backstory of Ocarina of Time centers on a colossal civil war between the numerous Hylian kingdoms going on for centuries which were united into a federation under the banner of the royal family within a few years of the game starting.

Guess how many we visit
>the same tiny ass kingdom and their immediate allies in the immediate area, none of which are Hylian and thus none of which were the other kingdoms in the civil war that now make up greater Hyrule
Literally the only game where we get outside of little Hyrule on the same fucking planet after Zelda II is Spirit Tracks and by that point the planet has been flooded and you couldn't recognize shit if you wanted to

>>246786918
I don't think you get it. You can make a field fuckhuge but it will still just be a fucking field (I'm looking at you OoT). We need some epic exploring in a Zelda game. See the rest of the fucking world instead the same fucking landmarks over and over and over again with different dungeon designs.

I crave exposition told through exploration.

Nigga what?

i'm glad games didnt look like complete ass when i was a kid. no wonder gaming didn't get big in those days. look at that shit. and even worse is people actually nostalgia over these linear pixelated shitfests

>Nigga what?
>The war in Hyrule raged unabated for countless eras.
>In the midst of the confusion, a lone woman fled the fires of war, babe in arms, and escaped to the Forbidden Forest. She entrusted her child to the spirit of Kokiri Forest, the Deku Tree. The Deku Tree, sensing that the infant’s destiny was intertwined with Hyrule’s future, took the child in.
>Once the child’s mother had breathed her last, the babe was raised as a Kokiri.
>This boy would later become Link the Hero.
>The fighting was eventually quelled by the king of Hyrule, and the entire land was unified under his kingdom.

I can confirm (not really seeing as this is a anonymous board) that OP is talking out of his ass but it is based on some truth. People are saying the new Zelda will be received poorly but thats because these shithead industry types never have anything good to say about Nintendo. So a rumors is spreading about some drastic chance in the format, but this happens every year. It's just speculation going around LA this week.

On that note I hear Super Mario Kingdom is a straight-up remake of 64 to be offered exclusively through the E-Shop.

If that game is better than Zelda U; they should give Aounuma the window seat and hand zelda to Retro

Huh, I don't remember that part.
Guess it's time to replay it.

>>246773258
>>246773503
Yeah you're right, I would have sworn I beat the game without it but it was a long time ago. Anyway there are loads of other secrets like the golden bee, the cape (I know you can cheese the parts where you're supposed to use the cape) and at least one of the sword upgrade. In general I just like the fact that all the items, whether you need them or not, are scattered around out of sight. In all the modern games they're placed right in your path.

So what are your gut feelings/predictions about Zelda U?
For some reason I'm getting the feeling it will be closer in tone to MM and TP, yet I'm also expecting it to differ significantly from the tech demo art wise.

Kind of how I felt about Skyward, but it grew on me when I actually played it. I dont think I could sit through another hand holding soft Zelda again though.

How could Nintendo go wrong after making the Zelda Wii U demo? Well, I guess people asked the same question after Wind Waker...

Miyamoto and Koizumi in charge.

What I'm expecting and what I'm hoping for are two different beasts.

I expect they'll try to compromise the game's difficulty in an innovate new way to win back the old fans without scaring off wii-fit fans. I would be crazy to expect them to recognize that a fair challenge and a strong sense of atmosphere were what made their previous 3D games successful at this point. Their sailing the casualboat all the way home and they'll be damned if they've come this far to let a few lousy fiscal quarters stop them.

What I HOPE for... Is a game that gives the player the OPTION to turn off hints. And without those hints, the game would ideally be full of creative characters who's dialogue gives you a sense of place, rather than being mere quest-givers and item-vendors.

I want puzzles, history, backstory, danger and the juxtaposition of a bright overworld with deep, genuinely creepy dungeons.
