>In the original Legend of Zelda, there was no clear way to lead the main character to his goal. It was something that we entrusted to the players to find by themselves. As the game later expanded into a franchise, the structure of the game worlds became more and more complex – especially with the introduction of 3D – making it necessary for us to point the player in the right direction. Consequently, progression in the games became more linear.

>To recreate a similar experience to the original, we have to give the game world a simple structure that players can understand intuitively. In doing so, it’s very important that we make every aspect of the world feel real and physically connected, so that it’s doesn’t look fake.

Ok, I really want to look forward to this, and I love the idea of a fully open world Zelda. But I really don't want to put up with the 'simplicity' and 'hints' of the series for the sake, of this, I want to be able to get rid of it all and experience the game without being babied.

Hopefully he means level design like in LA where by the time you get an item, you've already spotted thirteen different ways to use it in the overworld without knowing it. LA is my favorite game because it does intuitive level design so well.

ALBW had no hints unless you bought them with play coins

They've seen the error of their ways

>>260225872
They were clear with Skyward Sword that they wanted the overworld to also be a puzzle, which they did really well.

I realize the level of complexity is very different, but WWHD also has very little vusible aliasing, and it has no AA at all.

Moreover, I don't really see the point os using such extreme LOD reduction on a prerendered video
>>
>>260230456
Here's a WWHD shot from me
>>
I hope it's not as completely free and open as the first Zelda. I like a little bit of structure to the world.

I'd like them to find a solid mix that ends up between Zelda 1 and OoT, where it's clear what the intended route is but you can still do things out of order as long as you have the item or plot point needed to access the dungeon.

I'd also like to see a bunch of out of dungeon item acquisition, rather than use this item to beat the dungeon you find in the second half of the dungeon approach.

And more out of dungeon item use in general.
>>
>>260230443
The overworld had lots of puzzles to deal with before getting to the dungeons themselves. Did you forget the time stone segments in the desert? The overworld was great, it's just that the skyworld was empty, bland, and a huge let down, so it harmed the land parts.
>>
>>260230443
You're talking nonsense. SS' linearity and hubworld style have nothing to do with the fact that they integrated puzzle solving into the overworld.

They did, just as promised, and in my opinion it sucked balls, in cocnept and in execution. At least they didn't lie though.
>>
>>260230739
>I'd also like to see a bunch of out of dungeon item acquisition, rather than use this item to beat the dungeon you find in the second half of the dungeon approach.
I've been thinking this too as I go through the oracle games. You get all kinds of items outside of their dungeons, hell I think some dungeons have TWO items.
>>
ALBW was a surprising step in the right direction. Its only glaring flaw is somewhat dull art direction and an overabundance of things seen in ALTTP.
>>
>>260231863
The dungeons were also as simple and short as fuck as a result of having to assume each dungeon was the player's first.
>>
>>260231863
And the complete lack of difficulty and dungeon complexity.

>>260230739
I really hope that they do what they did with SS and go with a medium item count but it's usable throughout the entire game, in and out of a dungeon. And optional upgrades as well.
>>
>>260232331
>>260232334
This is my concern for Zelda U as well. They didn't know how to scale difficulty in ALBW when the dungeon order was nonlinear. They were good dungeons, but not very hard. I'm hoping Zelda U will have a set dungeon order with scaling difficulty, but the possibility to go tackle later dungeons early. You know, like Zelda 1.

This still presents the problems of dungeons requiring items from other dungeons though.
>>
It would be nice if it had something like a 3D version of ALttP's overworld, with linear dungeon progression (mostly?) but an open feel that encouraged exploration by having tons of secrets everywhere.
>>
>>260233112
I think it's best served by making minidungeons accessible outside of the actual dungeons. Making them scale in difficulty based on the dungeon they give access to and making them also require some other items you have to ear from easier minidungeons.

Like, say you could go for the Dungeon 8 item, but it would require the Minidungeon 5 and 7 items to get into, and it would have very tough monsters that you're expected to have a double strength sword and 15 hearts to fight.

Before this e3 I hated the 3D Zelda franchise and I thought I was more excited for Hyrule Warriors than Zelda U. Then they did something that I thought was only in my dreams. They are ditching all the conventions of LttP/OoT and going back to the true roots of TLOZ (NES). I am so fucking exciting. The World of Zelda U is just like the world I envisioned when playing TLOZ, except now I don't have to envision anything, it's actually really real and all explorable in the same style as the original. This is my Zelda wet dream.

That and I hope the soundtrack isn't full Orchestrated but instead a mix of orchestrated and MIDI like Dragon Roost in Wind Waker HD.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PHvrL1xeeM

But with more ambient music because the lack of music at night and anywhere outside of Outset and Dragon Roost killed WWHD for me. That music though. Fuck, I need to hear Zelda U's music already. That's what I'm most excited for, on top of the whole TLOZ (NES) in 3D HD.

That's not to insult naughty dog, but it's to say just how good they are. This is real, and it's happening. Also, it's a fucking year 3 game and it's first year had tons of development issues. They've likely refined their engines and are mastering all new techniques which are clearly on display now. Yes, graphics get better and they show.

I hope it doesn't become like ALBW where every dungeon is dungeon 1 level of difficulty.
Have an intended order, but allow the player to start with any dungeon. If the player realizes that he's in an area where enemies do 8 hearts damage and he only has 4, let him try to deal with that.
But my hopes for this are actually low.
All dungeons are probably gonna be beginner level and no dungeon will see the use of multiple items.

I also don't mind a companion or a story. They just need to be done right. Like Tatl was the perfect companion. She told you trivia about enemies, actually had a place and purpose in the story without centralizing the entire plot around her and had actual character growth. Tatl brainstorming with Link after he defeated Odolwa is gotta be one of my favorite moments of Zelda ever.
Actually after boss fights is always the perfect time for some story bits and cutscenes as you just came from a climax and now get time to lean back, calm down and relax, before continuing the game. I'd like a companion to go through with you what to do next and hear suggestions. What I don't like is overly long expositions and random cutscenes out of nowhere that break the game flow, like they loved to do in TP and SS.
>>

I agree with you, they need to tone it down a lot. It actually hurts my eyes. But you don't have to be so harsh about it.

That's probably because it's bloom is just what your eyes see when you look directly at a light source that's too bright for them. If you're seeing bloom in real life, it will hurt.

Something like Zelda 1 and Zelda 2, you go out wherever you like, find secrets and stuff but there's also towns and people to talk to.

What I find annoying is having points in your map telling you exactly where the dungeons are, people who want that should just use a guide, this Zelda should be about exploring to advance and get to the dungeons instead of just exploring as a secondary objective to find pieces of heart and shit.

I can see where you're coming from, but what I'm afraid of is that they'll reverse the problem and have too little guidance. I hope that the game finds a healthy balance between allowing the player to explore and find their own path while still letting them know about where they should go if they want to progress the story.

The amount of people who wanted (and still want) an even edgier (yes it was edgy, pic related) Twilight Princess sequel and were clambering for the tech demo artstyle is baffling. I mean I liked TP as a one-off, but it was the wrong direction for the series to head down and I'm glad they didn't peruse it further.

I think they nailed it with the artstyle this time. Bright, detailed environments, with simple, expressive characters.

Well combat needs to change too, that's a big no no, if Zelda U has the same shit as the other 3D games. I was able to beat that 3 headed dragon in TLOZ (NES) with just my wooden sword, and a lot of perseverance. I want it to be a challenge even with 20 hearts, but combat actually good enough to allow for me to kill even the final boss with early game items, albeit incredibly hard and after 100 deaths. It should have dungeons that you need items to get to as OPTIONAL.

TLOZ (NES) in 3D. Please, that's all I want.

>being excited for Dynasty Warriors 76 (ft. Link)

I watched Gameplay on Twitch about 2 weeks ago from a dude who had a Japanese Wii.

It's the most mindnumbingly boring shit I cannot fathom why anyone in their right mind is excited about this...

It's literally

>Oh...when do I stop doing the same thing over and over?

>>260239128
No, not really. It had some of the most numerous and obvious gripes of any 3D Zelda game, but what it did right, it did WELL.

The dungeon designs were fucking fantastic. The dungeon theming was unique in that many dungeons had two or more themes, something that typically isn't seen in Zelda. Time shifting pirate boat dungeon? Paradise/Underworld water dungeon? Electric time desert dungeon? The art styles were vibrant and colourful without becoming kiddy, and each dungeon had a uniquely different aesthetic.

The dungeon puzzles were great whenever they weren't making it blatantly obvious how to solve them. Many dungeon bosses were great, although some could be said to be underwhelming (scorpion, tentalus), or clones. Koloktos immediately comes to mind and just about any Ghirahim fight.

The swordplay controls were fucking fantastic, and TP could only wish to be as great. Sure, enemies eventually devolved into a simple game of simon says, but free range sword motion was still fucking great and a triumph of TECHNOLOGY.

I absolutely loved that the overworld was full of puzzles. Honestly, part of what was so disappointing for me with TP and WW was that they were so fucking EMPTY. Occasionally you'd stumble across a mandatory minigame, but all that travel time reeked of padding. Puzzles are a huge part of why I like Zelda, and I fucking loved SS for it.

I loved that items were upgradeable. I just wish that some of them got more use or weren't useless--whip, slingshot

Halo was released in 2001. Skyrim a full 10 years later. It's not possible to ride on the success of a genre 10 years after it was made. However, you cannot deny that there's been an influx of open world games thanks to Skyrim.

It's being added in a patch to the Japanese version alongside bug fixes and a new mode of play. It's probably just another skin for the sword and will most likely play the same way.

>>
>>260241835
So the fuck what? 13/14 of the games have been linear action adventures of extremely consistent quality. Also, there are very few action adventures like Zelda coming out, but plenty of open world games; I would rather not have the industry converge even more.
>>
>>260243982
How is it edgy?

I think you're confusing exactly what edgy is. It's not synonymous with grimdark.
>>
>>260242974
There's artwork (official artwork, and from the relevant years mind you) of Link being blonde in Legend of Zelda as well as Adventure of Link. I think he was meant to be blonde from the start.

But then they made it pink for some reason...
>>
>>260243386
As for gripes however, I have plenty.

The Imprisoned probably could have been a little more threatening/imposing or less repetitive. Maybe not look like a sleeping bag with tumourous growths for feet.

Flapping for bird flight, while I mastered it, was kind of silly and frankly only made my camera go retarded whenever I did it. It should have either been a function of a button, or automatic when you flew up. Those alone would have significantly improved the flight experience.

I wish Fi wasn't Navi, but even more bland and annoying. Her character development could have been more obvious instead of a last minute thing, and maybe she didn't need to tell me how each and every single puzzle worked, or annoy me when my battery was low.

I wish the game didn't remind you what every single thing you picked up was. They could have very easily had a compact, miniature item screen pop up at the bottom right or something and have a graphic of an item swooshing to its spot, instead of going "YOU FOUND THIS BUG YOU ALREADY HAVE 50 OF, LET'S OPEN UP YOUR MENU AND FIND WHERE IT GOES!" every time you started the game up again.

I wish I didn't have to sit through a cutscene every time I accidentally ran off the edge of town at night. Frankly, I find it kind of silly that time never seemed to pass unless you slept, although I could live without it, but there was no reason to not at least EVENTUALLY let you go out at night, maybe finding ghost islands or some shit or new events.

You do realize they've been working on this literally since they decided to make the Wii U, right? That's years of refining, and refining some more, and refining what you just refined even more. That's all that's been happening. They know they have to bring their A game, and they're making it clear they aren't holding back.
>>
>>260245087
There was literally only one block puzzle in SS.
>>
As much as I enjoy dungeons, I think I enjoy the overworld of Zelda more. Those seem to be the most memorable aspects of the game, or at least in regards to the 3D games.

So I'm glad they're taking this approach. I'm curious to see what they mean by "making it feel real."
>>
>>260245087
very rarely are zelda puzzles actually block puzzles, and when they are, there's usually some nuance to them or they're optional

besides, block puzzles actually require thought instead of just mashing buttons to kill millions of identical crash-test dummies

Babby difficulty with baby hints confirmed. You die once and they'll show you how to beat the boss, and there will be characters in each dungeon that show you how to complete it.

>>260245728
They've basically said they want to either do 1080p 30fps or 720p 60fps.
At first, they were just deadset on settling for 30, but then ALBW happened so they reconsidered.
>>
>>260244991
holy shiet kill yourself fucking nostalgia-fag.
>>
>>260245791
Maybe it was just a placeholder color they never changed, like the neon green background in the Sonic 2 logo
>>
>>260245728
WW HD ran at 1080p though. And since they've already said that Zelda games don't really need 60FPS (or rather, don't expect 60FPS to be the norm), there's no reason for it to NOT be 1080p.
>>
>>260246005
I would be totally okay with 720p 60 fps.

1080p 30fps not so much.
>>
>>260245357
See, it's the opposite for me. WW, OoT, and TP have all been underwhelming for me exactly because of sparse, uninteresting overworlds, and of those three OoT was easily the best.

OoT aside, SS was my most-enjoyed overworld, sky and how each region was accessed aside. And this was for the very same reason that I love the dungeons - they tossed PUZZLES in the overworld! I fucking loved that.
>>
As a fan on ALBW's open world, this is incredibly welcome
>>
>>260246083
I'll accept that.
>>
>all this 1080p 60fps cry baby nonsense

Games don't have to have that to be good. Who cares about that shit? I only care if it's a good game, not how well the game looks graphically.
>>
>>260245971
>Then what is the black smoke grenade for, from which his crawling and fearsome minions rush out who proceed to choke guards?
To thwart the last stand that Zelda was obviously planning? They had a bunch of guards with spears and shields in formation, ready to defend the throne. Hard to just walk in by yourself when there's something like that on the other side of the door.

>And the way he "negotiates" is pretty edgy, too
Yes, it is. That scene is Zant's introduction, and establishes that he's a total cunt.
>>
>>260246272
I just noticed it's like the only part of him that has no shading. The hair on the other two sprites there do have shading though.
>>
Whoa, a Zelda where you won't be railroaded? No arbitrary roadblock to make sure you don't wander into the wrong neighborhood?

Day one purchase.
>>
>>260245680
I like GOOD block puzzles. I also enjoy it when the blocks don't take a million fucking years to move.

OoT, while lacking in the latter, I typically enjoyed its block puzzles somewhat.
>>
>>260246098

With ALBW they said that they liked 60fps.
Personally I prefer 60fps over 1080p because I don't see any difference between 1080p and 720p anyway, but holy shit does a game feel different if it plays at 60fps or at 30fps
>>
I'm not riding the hype train this time. Not after SS.
Let me know how the game is once it's out and I'll consider getting it, but I'm still pissed over SS.
>>
>>260246046
Every game after it is basically a dumbed down experience with more focus on story and hand holding. Yes, there were a couple of improvements, that's fucking expected in sequels, but overall the first game remains the best.
>>
>>260245971
Well he is evil. I mean, he's being tyrannical, that's not inherently edgy at all.
Surrender or die, your choice, bitch

>>260246186
Zelda IS pretty slow paced. Every single 3D Zelda has been 30fps or below except ALBW and I haven't had an issue yet to be perfectly honest. Whatever they do I'll probably be fine with it. One area Zelda has always been fine in is art direction and animations.

This might be the game to make me want to play Zelda again.

They said they liked 60fps because of the way it looked in 3D, and because the old 2D Zeldas ran at 60fps and they were trying to replicate their feel.
I believe in Iwata Asks someone also specifically mentioned that they weren't trying to set a series precedent. I bet my balls that Zelda U will be 30fps like every other 3D Zelda.

I am so fucking excited. Zelda 1 hasn't aged well in the department of translation. The main problem with the original is with how open it is, you should be given a little direction at least to find hidden caves and such, but the hints were so poorly translated and made no sense. Now that we're in the future a bit, I'm sure we'll get that game Zelda 1 could've been fully realized into. No more will we have to burn hundreds of trees for bullshit keys. I love Zelda 1, but I definitely admit that it's aged poorly in a lot of aspects. Going back to play it or introducing the game to somebody is frustrating, as there is no clear way to go or what to do sometimes. Being forced to burn all these trees or bomb those walls trying to find that one cave can be really frustrating, so I'm definitely hoping they'll give you direction and hints in this game. Hell, I KNOW they will because the fucking Zelda team is smart as hell.
>>
>>260246186
>>260246005
>>260246485
They went 60 for ALBW because of the 3D, touch inventory, and combat to feel as snappy as the 2D games.

They'll go for 1080/30 because they know that the fastest way to gain the attention of the mainstream audience is with impressive graphics.
>>
>>260246485
Honestly, being smooth and consistent is more important to me than a high fps. This is why I'm able to enjoy "14 fps" Shadow of the Colossus still.

I'll be honest, if nintendo made an elder scrolls style game, I would probably like it more than the actual elder scroll games, which put me to sleep.

>>260246442
The way I see it, and it's especially prevailant in the Blue and Red Mails, is that the head tiles of the sprite are probably assigned a different pallet. Even the Green Tunic's hat different compared to the tunic. My guess is that the pallet was used with the hat, leaving just one single colour for the hair.

The two BSx protagonists don't have this problem as their heads never change.

This is reassuring.

"Open world" games are literally some of the worst. They tend to just have uninspired, copy-and-paste, shit level design and a bunch of shitty objectives you cross off a list and that only feel rewarding if you have OCD.

A world this is simply open and organic, with a finely crafted but open-ended quest line, is much better.

Quality over quantity, basically.

This is exactly what I hate, and Arin made a really good point about it, something being open world with objective marks in your map doesn't feel like you're exploring, it feels like a fucking tour.

LttP told you exactly where to go all the time, homeslice. You wake up, Zelda telepathically tells you to go to the castle. Get to the sanctuary, they mark Kakariko on your map and say "GO THERE". Then you get pointed to Sahasrahla, who sends you to the first dungeon and later to the library. All of the dungeons are marked on the map, and Zelda as well as Sahasrahla speak to you telepathically or through hint tiles to tell you what to do or give clues.

I thought you were gonna say you know they will because of how all the fucking hand holding pretty much all 3D Zeldas have. Hell, I wouldn't have your concerns at all, you know they won't do that with a modern game no matter what are they trying to recreate.

The randomness of the emptiness was funny at times.

On one occasion I was wandering in some deep, snowy mountains along a trail when a party of revelers came by. They told me to rejoice at such a wonderful day to be alive and gave me free beer.

They walked five feet and were all mauled to death by Sabertooth Mountain Lions.

Exactly. I'd actually like to see hints like in Zelda 2, but you know, translated correctly. A guy says "I heard you can get that hammer in this area", you later come across a rock, put two and two together. I hope for an open system like Zelda 1, but to the point of being unfair, which is where the hint system of 2 could come into play. But you know, said better and not as flat out.

If they actually pull it off the game is going to get shredded in reviews from the "us gaymers" crews that write about games nowadays.

I'm thinking maybe it won't be. Like, open world and non-linearity aside, I'm expecting some major fundamental changes just based on the interviews Aonuma was giving last year about development. It really sounded like his entire development philosophy for this game is "change it up".

That's a bad thing though. In a game that's supposedly going to be open, you need some hints, or else you will be lost searching and bombing walls forever. You need at least some hints for a game that's going to be this open. ALBW was them figuring things out and thinking of ways to change the formula for Zelda U, and Wind Waker HD was them testing the graphical limits of the system.

I hope it's not TOO simple. I dunno, I like the complexity that later games brought in. And it's not like Zelda 1 is my FAVORITE Zelda. I don't even think it's most peoples' favorite Zelda.

*Aonuma stated in interviews during the release of Twilight Princess that the controls were originally going to be more difficult, until it was ported to the Wii. This was because they considered the Gamecube audience "hardcore" and the Wii audience to be more wide-spread. If the Gamecube was considered "hardcore", it's safe to assume the Wii U is as well.

I'm sure there are some other tidbits to support my case but you get the picture.

Every Zelda has been as simple as reading a Dr. Seuss book. I hope they implement a challenge mode and a NG+ that adds extras and tons of unlock able items that you receive from skill based challenges like that sword master.

But none are as simple as the first was.

First game was really small and had extremely straightforward objectives, even compared to other Zeldas. The only parts that weren't simple were the parts that required you to make blind guesses, and that's not exactly "complex".

I do hope they use the gamepad for some optional motion controls though. First person aiming in WWHD was really fun. And I can even imagine them bringing back the beetle and using the gamepad to control it. One of the few good new items that SS did as well.

It seems like their biggest focus this time around is the overworld and "breaking the mold."

If you've been keeping up he's said a lot more than that.

And in fact, the only reference he's made to the older Zelda games is the very first one, and only in regards to the overworld.

He's been saying stuff like "handholding isn't fun", "if we don't change we might die", "making Hyrule into a setting never seen before", and "rethinking the roles of Link and Zelda, and making the game so that it is not immediately recognized as a Zelda game" pretty much ever since they announced the game's development last year.

Hence either after Zelda 2 or Skyward Sword.
Personally, my bet is that this'll be a distant sequel to Skyward Sword. Notice that the robot and Link's arrow (which isn't really an arrow but a dagger that Link found and strapped to an arrow) are the only high-tech looking things from the entire trailer.

Yes, but I believe that's only if you abstain from getting the two tunic upgrades. If you have the red tunic, bosses can do 8 hearts of damage in Hero mode

I don't want Zelda to be a western kind of game. In fact that's one of my biggest worries for the new Zelda.
>>
>>260260947
Blame the west for making TP a thing.
>>
>>260261139
What the fuck is there to hate about TP? Seriously.
>>
>>260260947
Zelda needs a balance between eastern and western catering. After Skyward Sword and Hyrule Warriors, I'd say the games have tipped overboard to eastern catering.
>>
>>260261426
NoA told Aonuma about WW's reception, so TP was based of what the west wanted out of a Zelda game.

And then it ended up being one of the highest selling Zelda games. Mainly because it was a Wii launch title but still.
>>
Zelda U will be Skyrim: Color Edition, Aonuma already said that, and Nintendo will probably try to focus on that audience since the Zelda fanboys are such cunts.
>>
>>260261139
I actually don't mind TP. The only thing I outright disliked about it as far as the series goes is the removal of magic, which seems to have become a standard now.

I'm more worried about the new game having even LESS cool magical shit in it, and favor technology instead. But my biggest worry is that they'll give it a loot system and RPG mechanics as the trend is with more western games lately.

Item upgrades and enemy drops have been in the game from the beginning.

I'm more worried about number-crunching and having a billion fucking items that are the same shit you already have but with a tiny amount more damage output. Stuff like that just doesn't fit in the Zelda universe, at least in my opinion.

Hey, at least it was a definite fucking improvement over skyward sword. It siginifies a shift in strategy for nintendo

agreed.
they were small.
they weren't very tricky.

>does anyone give a fuck about reviewers honestly?

Not since IGN gave Dark Cloud an 8.4 and Rayman 2: Revolution an 8.8. Neither game deserved more than a 5.

>At no point in time was the open world embraced as much as when Skyrim was released.


You clearly must not remember when the marketing for GTA III hit. People went APE FUCKING SHIT over that

>>260242334
you're right
they're all much better

I'm kidding.
aren't I?

The fuck are OoT and MM linear? The amount of content they have you can do in whatever order (be it dungeons or quests) is crazy.

I hated TP, but I'll admit that it had the best actual block puzzles in the series, if that counts for something.

It's like no one remembers that even in the original, there were item based impasses requiring the ladder, bait/food and raft.

If this world is truly explorable and littered with smaller dungeonlike areas I will possibly never need another game to play ever again.

Please Nintendo, give me 100+ hours of Zelda goodness.

I thought we already knew this from what was said at the reveal?

Fuck! This right here. I loved the fact that she said new shit when you entered a different section.

I doubt that's ever going to be the case.

The rings in Oracles, AoL's leveling and SS's upgrades are the closest things they've done, but I wouldn't mind something similar being in WiiU Zelda.
