Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The Official Legend of Zelda Thread: New Zelda U Details!

Should Nintendo have released Majora's Mask 3D on WiiU instead?

Yes! Majora's Mask in HD would be glorious!
No! It belongs on 3DS with Ocarina 3D
I don't care! I'm just happy to have it!
Where's my remake of Zelda II?

First of all, a big thank you to axumblade for his authorization.

Second of all, welcome to the official Legend of Zelda thread. I know that official threads traditionally cover platforms or companies, but I think that there are enough fans of Zelda on this site to warrant an official conversation.

I will do my best to post news, previews, rumors, and any other media that pops up about The Legend of Zelda. And I encourage anyone else to do the same.

Post anything here that is related to Zelda:

1) Game reviews
2) Strategies and hints
3) Rumors and hypotheses
4) "Best of" lists
5) The latests news from Nintendo
6) Your own Zelda artwork, etc.

Welcome to the thread!

Note: news of the week will always appear in the second post in this thread, just below this post.

Nintendo just showed off that new Zelda at The Game Awards via a video recorded at the company's studios in Japan. Zelda lead producer Eiji Aonuma controlled the game while Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto added some commentary.

The game shows a zoomable world map on the Wii U gamepad and action on the TV. The map indicates that the game's world is massive. At one point Aonuma said that it'd take five minutes to span the distance that they wanted to travel from one part of the game's map to another (it seemed that they were operating in the map's lower right corner). This led Miyamoto to quip about whether the game would actually come out next year. It will, Aonuma said.

This is really good news, and a great thread! Thanks. I will be coming back in here quite often.

Nintendo Network ID Sasso13 - ADD ME!!! 3DS code: 3480-3117-6001 name SassoBet made with ninjablade on the 23rd Jan. 2013: If Wii U will not sell 25 mil units WW lt HE WILL HAVE FULL CONTROL OF MY SIGNATURE AND AVATAR for A MONTH! I BET THAT WiiU will sell 25mil units WW by the end of 2015 - in which case I will take control of his avatar and signature for a month!!!
I don't have any artwork, but I did make a half-assed wooden Master Sword. I'll have to take a picture of it and post it here. Even though it's shoddy and unfinished and nicked up from using it as a prop sword in a spoof movie. I'll never finish it, but I keep it around because it's kind of cool in it's own way.

Hm, I'm having problem embedding two videos from Gametrailers I think every Zelda Fan would find interesting. One is about the Zelda Timeline and the other is a bit older where they talk about all the games that had been released up to that point... Oh well, I guess I'll just post the links here until I figure out how to do it properly...

Enjoy!!!



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I just bought Hyrule Historia from Amazon today, will arrive Feb 21 at the latest. Cant wait for LoZ:WW HD, will be my dirst time with WW =)

My Hyrule Historia arrives today, and I'd love to see remakes of both Majora's Mask and the original Legend of Zelda. I really think a modern Zelda following the same principles as the original would work brilliantly on Wii U. Easier inventory management thanks to the Gamepad, huge open world thanks to the more powerful hardware, and finally, a return to the kind of subtle secrets you see in the original. Miyamoto wanted people to talk about Zelda, to ask people if they've found this or that secret, or where can I get this item, or how do I beat this boss. Miiverse is perfect for that kind of design and community interaction, and will level the playing field for those that want the help, while the purists can march on and discover the secrets themselves.

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Bet with Lawlight: How many PS3 will Sony ship over 2013. He wins if that are more than 11 million, I win if it are less.
