>Supposed 2016 release date
>We still know next to nothing about this game

Why has Nintendo remained so tight-lipped about Zelda U?
>>
>>323715970
because its actually Zelda NX

probably not though
>>
I've seen that screenshot so many times, and I'm probably going to see it even more when the game actually releases in downgrade threads. There's no way THAT is running on the WiiU. Especially at 1080p with the proper anti-aliasing.

I think Zelda WiiU will be another Skyward Sword or Phantom Hourglass. An okay game that'll just be added to the Zelda pile. I'm not expecting anything more.
>>
gonna be a great game I think but they're also trying to keep our hype in check
nobody wants another SS situation
>>
The game is in dev hell
>>
>>323716276
Zelda u's world isn't even as good as XCX's, though the lighting effects are probably bullshots
>>
This your first Zelda/Mario release? Nintendo always keeps a tight lid on shit until pretty close to release. And people always freak out that the whole game is gonna be the beginning grass aesthetic. It's kind of funny.

Because it's trash and they are out of ideas. No one cares about Zelda anymore because they know it's not gonna measure up to any of the previous games. Get ready for another 1 hour handholding unskippable intro

What does that even mean? What are you trying to say?

>>323715970
It's not Zelda, all their games are like that. nobody saw much of Mario tennis until its release week
>>
>>323717775
Nintendo's cageyness about upcoming Zelda/Mario games is a result of the hype backlash that TP and Brawl received

>>323717873
You don't remember all the shitposting about how 3D World and Skyward Sword were 'creatively bankrupt' when all they showed was level 1 and the forest zone? People draw the most retarded conclusions
>>
>>323716276
Is this your first generation of consoles? Because if there's one thing to learn, never underestimate what Nintendo can do with their consoles, no matter how underpowered. Not only that, they stated it isn't gameplay, but rather an in-engine cutscene from the game.

no, what you think about is how the game was originally for the game cube and was poreted to wii last minute, making you believe the wii version, the only you remember, was marketed for long before release.

Nah, it's coming. They said last year they didn't show it because it would be over a year until release and didn't want to get people too excited too early. It's coming this November, the 30th Anniversary.
>>
>>323718752
How do you know? Look at gameplay when it comes out. Either get it or don't, if you're on the fence just wait.
This thinking confuses the fuck out of me. Do you NEED INFO RIGHT NOW? You don't ABSOLUTELY NEED TO GET IT RELEASE DAY. If you're on the fence wait and see gameplay.
>>
>>323717980
Almost every segment of SS was relieved before hand, All the dungeons and areas and 2 minute videos leading to the release, as well as we usually get a name or trailer at this point (not just a small teaser or gameplay, like an edited trailer showing different elements of the game)
>>
>>323718949
they sometimes release screenshots at higher resolution than the console can output, which is technically a bullshot, but they don't change the geometry or the texture res when they do that so it's not that bad

It's kind of exciting though.

These days games oversell everything about it. It's why you can have a billion threads mocking Fallout 4 as soon as Todd's done showing it off at E3.

But you know what Zelda's basics are like. You know the fundamental element of this game. An open-ended adventure in the style of the first Zelda, but that would've been impossible to make on previous Nintendo platforms before Wii U.
>>
>>323719424
I feel like we have considerably less info then other games
We haven't gotten a true trailer just gameplay and teaser trailers
It feels like there hiding something, We don't know the name, gimmick or any story elements yet but those are usually announced with the first trailer

Yeah I suppose so, they did say that they were ready to show off a trailer at a couple events but held back. Maybe they were anticipating the delay.

Xenoblade X looks too good for its own good. Zelda not looking that great means no pop in, so that's good.

Since Koji Kondo isn't the main composer again and is instead overseeing the music and sound design, who do you want to see be a part of the composition team? Before you lose your shit about
>WHAT NO KOJI KONDO 0/10
Remember that this is usual for Zelda, other composers will do a lot of stuff, he approves it, applies changes where needed, while composing a few key songs.
I propose Mitsuhiko Takano, Kiyohiro Sada, Minako Adachi, and Toru Minegishi. To me they're the best Zelda composers right behind Kondo.

The WiiU could pull that off with 720p no problem. 1080p? Not so much.

Nintendo EAD are just really good at getting the most out of shitty hardware. Couple this with Monolith Soft helping out and...yeah, probably pretty doable

That whole video is in engine. That short

>>323719290
>they sometimes release screenshots at higher resolution than the console can output,
That was for SS though. Since the Wii U they've shown native res direct feed screenshots of their games. There was even a bit of a thing where people were doubting that Smash actually was at 1080p before the Smash Direct.
>>
>>323721806

I think that if Zelda U is the size of Primordia and Noctilum, while being a bit more dense content wise and keeping the fast travel to a minimum w/ no supersonic travel like X has, we could have a beautiful world. Keep in mind that the game will hopefully have a number of villages and 8-10 dungeons
>>
>>323720951
No Kondo means orchestra, and I'll gladly take that trade. Imagine Galaxy without it.
>>
>>323721806
Nah, Monolith has been helping Nintendo in pretty much every 1st party AAA game they release, even Skyward Sword, Smash Bros and Splatoon and by what Aonuma says he wants to do with the world, pretty sure they'll step in to design it.

>>323722518
>Zelda is all about the dungeons.
No it's not. The overworld/exploration experience is a key part of the Zelda franchise.
A shitty overworld and non-dungeon segments just end up being a slog to play through, that's one of the main reasons why Twilight Princess is criticised.
For fucks sake, the main selling point of the original Zelda was the large world filled with secrets that you could explore.
Fucking moron.
>>
>>323721987
Oh, I don't mean in terms of size, Xenoblade X is ridiculously huge and genuinely takes hours to traverse on foot. The size you mention is fine, I mean more in terms of creativity in how the terrain is laid out and what it's composed of. Stuff like those half-sunken mechanical rings in Oblivia and all those intersecting paths made of huge tree branches in Noctilum are a tall order to match.

Oh. Well, the best we can hope with Zelda is plains, lava, desert, rivers, lakes, caves, etc. Probably won't get any beautiful Sylvalum type areas

The only exception is MM, and that's it, an exception.

>>323723256
I'm sure it just takes time. First HD Zelda and all, add big world to it and it definitely requires three or so years to construct after it's conceptualized.

Because it will be an unmitigated disaster
>>
>>323723192
And the power-ups, the heart pieces, the side quests, the minigames, the additional items, the collectibles and all those things that make a game world interesting and not just an empty field that wastes your time.
The use of the items you get in dungeons to open up further parts of the overworld for more exploration and finding collectibles, power-ups and sidequests is a central part of the Zelda design philosophy and has been from the very beginning.
>>
>>323719906

>shitty

Depends on what you mean by shitty, if you mean it's shitty because you sometimes had to switch out a disc, then yeah that was annoying.

If you mean the smaller surface area meant that the laser didn't have to travel as far and thus meant wildly faster loading times in most games, then I have no idea what you mean.

The actual gameplay footage we got shown was ugly as a mother fucker. I wouldn't be surprised by a second delay.

I don't care how it looks honestly, I just want a good Zelda game that isn't the tired old linear formula that we've been getting over and over. After having played every last Zelda game at least 3 times, a few of them countless times, I don't think I could play another one unless they change it up a bit. ALBW was a good game and I hope to see this one be more open ended, which is what they said they are doing so that's promising.

Nintendo revealing anything much about their big games usually foreshadows disappointment. I'd happy for them to keep their secrecy and huge development cycles if it means getting a return-to-form home console Zelda.

>All that is secondary stuff.
>Sure, it's needed.
Are you mentally handicapped?
It's a fundamental part of the Zelda design philosophy. Exploration of a large worlds filled with secrets is one of the key aspects of the franchise dating back to its inception. The player is given incentive to explore through unique items, additional power-ups and sidequests to expand the potential length of a playthrough and offer alternative goals in tandem to the main quests.
The poorly recieved Zelda games are rightfully criticised because they take that freedom and incentive away from the player (e.g. Twilight Princess/Skyward Sword).
Saying the exploration and incentives are secondary shows a basic lack of understanding of what the Zelda series is about and a poor understanding of game design in general.

Think about it, when was the last good Zelda game released. Not including titles on handheld devices.

Whats the trend in newer iterations?

Did they break out in cold sweat when they looked at what Zelda U had become?
>>
Witcher makes Zelda incredibly reduntant, aside from dungeons which Zelda still does decently.
>>
>>323724720

They usually reveal a lot about each game. They just start quietly and then ramp up info.

In the case of SS, for example, if I recall correctly the only big piece of info between both of its E3s was Ghirahim's design. After its second E3 (which revealed Zelda, the first dunegon and Ghiarhim's name and role) more and more information started to be released.

>>323725392
Yeah but that was back in December of 2014. They've had a full year to work on it since then and they probably still have most of this year too.

Because they don't want to repeat the mistakes they did with Twilight Princess by overhyping the game while it keeps being delayed. Or so they're claiming.

I personally call that excuse bullshit. I mean, yes, Twilight Princess got delayed a lot, just like Zelda Wii U, but at least in that case they showed a bit more than just a gameplay snippet and a couple of short trailers. We actually got info on the game, which made the wait far more bearable. With this, we only get a couple of trailers and a buttload of speculation based surrounding them. No actual objective facts to get hyped for besides the whole open-world thing and the few gameplay mechanics they showed off at the 2014 game awards. I mean, damn, at this point people are pretty much dying for some actual facts about the game's story and more elaboration on the gameplay rather than just the small amount of glimpses that we've gotten so far.

If Nintendo really wanted us to keep interest in the game, they'd have actually shown something with real meat behind it rather than eyecatcher cinematics and a short bonus segment showing off how big the map will be and how some of the gameplay worked at that point in time. That, besides the Wolf Link amiibo being compatible with the game, is all we have to go by right now.

I will say, though, that when they actually show off the game for real rather than just showing another vague snippet of footage, people are inevitably gonna go totally apeshit, like what happened when Twilight Princess was revealed, and at least then we know we won't have to wait too long to get it anymore.

>>323725734

I think the problem is more that the series is a jack of all trades, master of none. As a result, none of what it does is exceptional which makes the series seem less remarkable than other options.

The Witcher 3 for example has been lauded for its open world and writing, but the consensus is that its combat is mediocre at best. (I haven't played the game, just going off what I've seen)

For Christ sake, I'm one of the biggest OoT fags there is, and I don't want to be lumped in with dungeonfags. The vast majority of Zelda dungeons are mediocre and you get a far superior temple crawling experience from playing classic Tomb Raider.

The overworld has always been what defined Zelda and marked it out from other series, and OoT is about as far from the exception to this as you can get.

this is gonna have some half ass souls game online isn't it?

they said that with SS too.

>The overworld has always been what defined Zelda and marked it out from other series, and OoT is about as far from the exception to this as you can get.
It won't even have an overworld to set it apart thanks to the huge increase in open worlds.

>Shit combat

It was great in TP and the N64 games had great combat for their time.

>>323726978

To be fair, SS did break some traditional Zelda mechanics, except it was all the good ones. They made it even more linear and more hand holdy.
>>
>>323726978
SS did change stuff though.
>>
>>323715970
its getting delayed
>>
they originally had the game planned out

then they saw how good XCX's world was and said fuck it, went back to the drawing board
>>
>>323726243
this doesn't look impressive, even from an artstyle perspective. why is it people think saturated colors = good graphics? is it because there are so many gray corridor shooters these days?
>>
>>323725486
Which means wii u adopters will be gimped, which means Nintendo has abandoned loyal fans. I got a wii u and that shit is going to be my last Nintendo console.
>>
>>323726982
I was going to make some sort of shitpost telling you to delete that comment but I know it will be true.
From that Game Show footage, it looks like it's emulating the current trend of open world game design instead trying to break away from the mould.
And that's really disappointing.
I just want it to be worth exploring and crammed full of hidden stuff. A big map is useless if there's nothing to do in it.
I'm still going to hold out hope while bracing myself for the worst.
>>
I seriously think there might be some kind of gender bend shit. Nintendo keeps talking about gender options in games, and now we have Linkle or whatever the fuck she's called.
>>
Skyward Sword was a good game and fuck you.
>>
>>323727418

There won't. Link just doesn't have his tunic and hat because they couldn't figure out how to make it not clip with his shield.
>>
>>323727418

Link has always been said to be a little gender bender. I can remember people, myself included, saying Link seemed like a girl in Ocarina.
>>
>>323727541
Shiggy even wants a girl to play Link should there ever be a live action movie.
>>
>>323727418
>>323727541

Also, Japs do this with pretty much every male character ever.
>>
Don't worry, they're just using the time to add hundreds of "collect a bunch of random shit" side-quests.
>>
>>323727357
every zelda, bar MM, has been kind of pointless to explore though. what's there to find, heart pieces in caves?

pfft.
>>
>>323727998
MM has some of the weakest exploration in the series, everything is crammed into Clocktown and there's relatively little to discover wandering around the world.
>>
>>323727998

They could expand on the equipment upgrades from SS, but make the materials be in caves or whatever. They could add lots of game mechanics that would make exploration enjoyable and meaningful, doubt they will though.
>>
wish they'd make it more like dark souls.

by that I mean more open areas. you're not locked in some tiny building with a bunch of rooms that require small keys. imagine a "dungeon" like undead burg, where it's more a general area, with secrets to explore, traps, optional fights/ items and backtracking, etc. instead of some element themed building you need to unlock.
>>
>>323725486

If NX is backwards compatible i could see it as the last first party Wii U game so even if you don't have a Wii U you can pick up an NX and still play it.
>>
>>323716276
Its actually pretty basic stuff except for for lighting and the dymanic world(grass moving in the wind).
Other than that the textures are extremly simple so they dont require much space, models are way below GTA V on PS360, the grass blades are very simple(seems like a very simple grass shader that even unity engine with its shit performance can do better), sprites for LOD(zoom in on the trees at the distant), if they go the WW HD they will bake the lighting into some textures to further decrease the workload.
But yeah 1080p with high quality AA and a playable framerate is very unlikely.
>>
>>323728154
I meant with the masks, which are actually intersting to collect, and added a lot to the lore/gameplay, as opposed to silver rupees, and heart pieces.
>>
>>323728276
in order to have useful equipment upgrades, the game has to be actually challenging

even the hero mode in SS was piss easy and the cocksuckers at nintendo don't offer it first playthrough so you already know how to kill every single enemy by then
>>
>>323716276
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsSUWqbGgH0

looks as good as a 10 year old game.

some accomplishment.
>>
>>323728478
>in order to have useful equipment upgrades, the game has to be actually challenging

Agreed, and this is something only the original did right.
>>
>>323717583
why is this impressive? they're just polygons with a simple texture on them.
also, eveyrthing else is very simplistic.
>>
>>323728279
You mean like, I don't know, an overworld? Piss off Soulsfag.
>>
>>323727418
It'll happen eventually, probably, but I doubt this will be the one to do it, since the idea only started to become more widespread once development was well in progress.
>>
>>323728279
what the fuck are you talking about?

souls games are linear as fuck with branching linear pathways that sometimes circle around onto themselves

the zelda games are more open

You have to keep in mind that the Wii U is essentially a 360 with 1GB of slow ram instead of 512mb of fast(er) ram.
>>
>>323729083
god damn how did they make halo 4 look that good on a 360
>>
>>323729083
yeah, true.

hopefully they'll bring it to nx.

ideally they should just scrap wiiu version altogether. no one cares.
>>
>>323728805
but a good overworld.

not just a big empty field in the middle with buildings on the side.

The 360 was arguably more powerful than the PS3 (faster GPU and more accessible ram). Microsoft just never had a strong first party studio that was interested in pushing/maxing the system. Halo 4 and Gears 3 were some of the only times it was really pushed to the limit.

A Naughty Dog 360 game could have looked really good.
>>
>>323720232
Because it doesn't
>>
>>323729083
The Wii U has a way faster GPU though. It has a modified 5770 iirc.
>>
>>323720440
If Yoko Kanno or Shoji Meguro get in on this, I'll buy the damn soundtrack with real human earth dollars.
>>
>yfw Aonuma couldn't even describe exploration without saying it's "like a puzzle"
>>
>>323715970
We do know one thing - it's the Wii U's tombstone. This game is the last effort Nintendo is putting into the Wii U.
>>
>>323731459
If I can just march ahead without bothering to consider anything, it's a fucking waste of time. Either make the paths between destinations require some thought to get through (read: make it a puzzle) or give it actually good combat (fuck random encounters of all stripes).
>>
>>323731847
>hating random encounters
You must really hate RPGs.
>>
>>323732103
most, yes, but some do it well

like Fire Emblem (at least the good games of it) eschew the concepts of an overworld or random encounters altogether; you just have ~30 sequential "dungeons" with fixed encounters, and that's great

paper mario ttyd is a lot closer to the traditional definition of "rpg", but still it has absolutely no random encounters and no rooms are just a bunch of enemies without anything else happening
>>
Because the game suffered a major overhaul.

i don't think open world should mean bad. i mean, ALttP had a semi-open world and was a great game. is it so hard to make something like that but somewhat more open?
>>
>>323729843
>>323729174
Halo 4 on xbone via the MCC legitimately looks like an 8th gen game if you ignore the terrible texture resolution on a lot of objects.
>>
>>323728602
>muh realistic graphics are better

Also by your logic, crysis, a 9 year old game, can look better than pretty much anything out now.

go kill yourself
>>
>>323715970
Better than Skyward Sword's marketing which spoiled every boss, area, item and character up until the final dungeon.
>>
>>323734235
Best 3D Zeldas without a doubt.

I liked the item upgrades and stamina system though. At least conceptually they could be good, SS's were meh.

Imagine if this had come out in 2005.
>>
>>323727346
how are they getting gimped if they're getting the game they were promised? I'd prefer them to be upfront about it if there is another version instead of re-releasing a "DEFINITIVE EDITION" 2 years later or something.
>>
>>323728404
I loved the masks because they were unique. Saying they added a lot to the gameplay is stretching it though, most of them (outside main quest ones) were only useful for getting a heart piece.

I agree they were the best collectibles in any zelda game though.
>>
Calling it: Anonther shitty spin-off title alongside Twilight Princess HD will be the 2016 games to tide us over when they announce another delay for the NX.

They have until E3 to show me something with this title, I'm sick of waiting and I'm sick of Hyrule Warriors shitting up most of the Zelda threads.

Don't think he'll listen to you. Souls has much weaker environmental interactivity as well, the game cant assume that you'll have a ranged weapon or magic, so absolutely everything has to be designed so that it's possible to walk up to it and punch/press it without additional equipment.
