New Zelda in the Works With More Mature Link
« on: June 03, 2009, 01:00:32 AM »
Miyamoto and company are working hard on the new Legend of Zelda, and it might be Wii MotionPlus compatible.
 http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/newsArt.cfm?artid=18699

 Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009: The Legend of Zelda concept art    


At the Shigeru Miyamoto roundtable tonight, it was revealed that an all-new entry in the Zelda series is in development. One piece of concept art was shown displaying Link and what was possibly a Zora.    


The brains at EAD are still working on many new ideas for the new Zelda, but they hope to include Wii MotionPlus support. In fact, depending on how well Wii Sports Resort sells they may make MotionPlus mandatory. Miyamoto also asked the attendees to think about the new Zelda when playing archery and kendo in Wii Sports Resort.    


Unfortunately, the game will not arrive until next year at the earliest.

Hurrah! The Big Three part two is go! A Zelda trailer would've been icing, but it's fine if they decided to focus on making the game rather than making a trailer.

I rode Twilight Princess' hype train all the way, to the point where it had a detrimental effect on my enjoyment of the game itself. I don't mind if they hold off on releasing media until the game is just a few months (maybe six?) away.
I like to do drawings.

Just because a massive epic trailer was NOT shown for Zelda it doesn't mean the game is vaporware. If its creator says that development is underway and ideas were explained and show then it exists.

LOL at talk of new Zelda being vaporware.

I still think someone sneaked a shot of it in there. It's gotta leak some time. I think by weeks end it will be out in the wild.

They should make an old man Link. They could title the game The Legend of Zelda: The Last Hurrah.

Word for word from E3 08. They couldn't part with just a little more information?

I'm confused. Did the "small sampling of artwork" reveal the "older and more mature" look for Link?

If so, what is meant by "older and more mature?" When I hear "older and more mature" I think, I don't know, 40s - 60s. What are we comparing "older and more mature" to? The last Zelda game, where he was 17? That could mean Link in his late 20s, early 30s. But if we're simply applying "older and more mature" to the range of ages Link has ever been (10 to 17) then that means Link is going to be 17 again. Which makes this not news, at all.

It's Evan. Hey Evan!

I think it may just refer to how the art style presents him. Typical Japanese Anime style always confuses me anyway. A thirty year old looks fifteen.

I think Matt at IGN said he looked early twenties.

Might as well just have Mario don the green tonic.

Or a special power where Link can change sexes.

LOL, Nintendo doesn't need another character with a gender crisis.

But not a tonic. Plus he doesn't wield a sword and shield.

Zelda needs to be playable outside of Smash Brothers. They could call the game Zelda's Revenge.

Alright, blurry awesomeness! That does look pretty similar to TP, though maybe it'll be brighter (which I judge solely from that fire-y stuff in the background). And uh-oh, looks like Link's a righty again...

FAIL cuz you don't throw a boomerang like a frisbee (it'd never come back to you!)

Fine, move the damn Wiimote to the other side of your body and make a bizarro disc throwing motion.  Same thing.

lol, having seen the art I'm sorry to report that what you see in the background isn't fire. It was actually much less bright, but for whatever reason came out as such due to the extremely low res photo.
