View Full Version : New Zelda! *explodes*

Oh my dear God in heaven! :D

I loved TWW, thought it was one of the most fun Zeldas around, even though it was way too easy. But as much as I liked it, I always hated the way it looked. Not really the cell shading, 'cuz I didn't have a big problem with that, but the character designs. They were just goofy!

But now, when I thought it would never actually happen, we're actually going to get a Zelda game using the graphics from the Space World 2000 demo! But, of course, even better now since graphics have improved in the past 4 years.

I'm not a graphics whore, not in the least. Like I said, I loved TWW. But it's soooo nice to get a Zelda game that will actually look and feel as epic as it's always been in my head! Thank you, Miyamoto, thank you! I cried when I saw this video footage! ^_^;

Now, the long wait for a release begins.

was this at e3?

where did you find this info?

Rev. Link

It was from Nintendo's pre-E3 conference. It's all over all the major news sites (IGN, Gamespot, Nintendo.com, etc.) but good luck getting in. They're all so bogged down right now, it took me forever to get a look at the actual video.

I finally got to see it from both Gamespot and Nintendo.com. Gamespot's is tiny and in poor quality, but uses the orchestrated music from the guy that did the Conan the Barbarian theme. Nintendo.com's is bigger and much sharper, but uses what kind of sounds like in-game music, but not the traditional Zelda theme we all know and love.

If that's true and those are in game graphics all I can say is

X_x

Now gimme some decently difficult dungeons and some LAND to run around on and I'll be a happy guy.

besides the graphics and all the damn sailing I liked windwaker.








If this plays as good as it looks I will buy it.

Oh, it's true. When it's on Nintendo's own site, you know it's true.

I agree about the difficulty, though. I beat TWW in a week, found every item, didn't die once (didn't even have to use a fairy), and had virtually no help from guides. So I hope this game is more of a challenge.

I'm sure it'll be full of land, too. The video shows Link swordfighting on horseback! X_x

That zelda looks so great! I loved WW, but I missed the ground....too much water. I can't wait for this one!

I'm not one to bash Wind Waker (I loved the game--a LOT), but after seeing that video, I feel like we somehow got cheated with Wind Waker. The landscapes, castle, music, and everything about those 30 or so seconds screamed REAL Ocarina of Time sequel. Sweetness. The anticipation already starts.

Can we preorder yet? LOL

05-11-2004, 04:16 PM
Wow.

It's been a while since I've had "that fanboy feeling". I loved Windwaker (two more dungeons would have been even better though), but have you d/led the new Zelda Trailer?

God Damn, Link was BORN AGAIN HARD!!!

Sweeeeeeet...

i was at the conference and when shiggy came out on stage... everyone knew he had something great to tell...

he said a few words and BAM video started playing... the entire place appluaded instantly... it was absolutely great.

the part in the forest looks gorgeous... christ, i'm pretty excited right now, so excuse my rambling... i think i'll cut it off now.

that would be great if this game was released within the year, but i dont think it will happen, unless nintendo has been working on this a lot long than i would think they have

MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN HEARD!!!!
Thank you Mr. Miyamoto YOU ARE A GOD!
Now that is the ZELDA I KNOW AND LOVE!
damn beautifull Gamecube game, truly amazing @_@
I havent been this stoked about a new game for years prob since TOOT and/or Metal gear Solid on PSX!
thanks Nintendo you finally brought back that tingly feeling I have missed for sooo long (insert smart remark here) I dont really care this is freakin great I would be happy with my GC if the only games I owned for it were this new ZELDA and the Metroid Prime games :D

I never would have expected this, especially since most people thought we would see Wind Waker 2 at E3. But this is certainly great news. :D I checked out the video from IGN and the game looks awesome already. I especially like how Link can ride Epona and attack other riders with his sword. I'm sure the gameplay will be as solid as its been in the last few years.

Ed Oscuro
05-12-2004, 06:18 PM
Now wait, this really is the GC? Doing this stuff? Whoa.

Improved graphics? Heh, that's an understatement...I thought WW's graphics were good from a stylistic point of view but I had assumed we were looking more or less at the series' pinnacle, seeing how some of the dungeons with hordes of monsters running around had some noticeable slowdown in the more frenzied moments. Guess that little box has more inside than we'd guessed :P

Rev. Link
05-12-2004, 06:53 PM
And now, we're getting a new 2D Zelda on GBA! Man, this is great, this means we're about to get 3, maybe 4 new Zelda games!

I'm really looking forward to the GBA game now too. ALttP is still my all-time favorite game, and I'm hoping Flagship (who I thought did great work on the Oracle games) can give us something that may even compete with that!

I almost wet my pants when I saw the movie. Adult Link is back, sweet! I sure hope there isn't too much sailing involved like in Wind Waker.

Rev. Link
05-13-2004, 06:44 PM
I'm gonna guess little to no sailing.

Lotsa horseback riding, I hope. Can't wait to ride into battle! :D

Oh yeah, we have a while to wait! I read that nintendo is going to try and have a demo at e3 2005. So the game probably wont be released until fall '05.

It will take a long time to make a great game. Didn't Ocarina of Time take like 4 years to make?

Rev. Link
05-13-2004, 11:03 PM
OoT took 3 years. But then, we don't know how long this game has been in development. It's obviously something they've already put some effort into.

Ed Oscuro
05-13-2004, 11:14 PM
Hmm, but you remember that in 1995 you had that really primitive stuff (as in my slides) that looked NOTHING like the end product. I'm wondering if this is the end result of the old realistic Spaceworld Zelda demo from years ago... :O

Rev. Link
05-13-2004, 11:23 PM
Right, that's what I'm thinking.

I'm sure the game still has to have that Nintendo polish put onto it, but I think most of the main body of work is probably done.

Oh come on Qbert, you haven't bought a gamecube yet? What the hell, there only $99 and they are the best system out!
(I am a nintendo boy though :D )

Will this Zelda game maybe get you to buy one when the time comes?

NintendoMan
05-14-2004, 08:12 AM
[quote=I think most of the main body of work is probably done.[/quote]

I am sort of thinking that too, but I MORE think that nintendo still has ALOT of work to be done to the game yet. I am sure it won't hit til late '05, but maybe I'm wrong and it will come out next week, yeah.

No really though, I am so EXCITED, words can't describe what I am feeling. Ocarina of Time is my fav game of all time. I am not some super Zelda maniac, like I am to the Mario game, but still do have all the Zelda's. Just all that land and travel in OOT, I am just so happy!

So the whole time Nintendo was saying they were putting out Wind Waker 2, when in reality they were just doing that so they could surprise us at E3.
I guess another Wind Waker will be held off til a later date.

LATE 05, pffff, sorry but yeah, it's probably not going to be 04, but LATE 05, no way, look at the video, A LOT seems to have been done already, and if you consider the fact that this is the zelda game they have been working on since WW i think it's impossible to take that long...

My bad, but can't tell if you think it will come out in '04 or '05?

Yeah, and a good game will take this long. It took Nintendo 3 years to finish the OOT for N64 so could easily take more time on this one. But who knows?

Actually, according to Miyamoto, this game is using TWW's engine, just with different graphics. So this game is "TWW2" they kept talking about.

05-14-2004, 02:55 PM
Just as long as I don't have to fucking pack around some dumbass character in every goddamn dungeon. x_x

I still can't understand how Nintendo would think it a good idea to take the WORST part of Ocarina of Time and repeat it multiple times in Wind Waker.

Rev. Link
05-14-2004, 02:59 PM
From the looks of it so far, Link's gonna be too busy kicking ass to have to deal with anything like that. :)
