Surprised to see some of the negative reaction to Link. I really like his new look

Also the rumors of Skyrim being an influence are clearly true. I wonder if Links clothing will be customizable


Skyrim should never be an influence for a Zelda game, why does everything need to be open world now ? Thats not what makes a game good in fact open worldness often times kills the story telling and make you loose focus on important missions while you go after useless colectibles that are there just to try to give a reason for why every corner of the world exists. To be fair the Witcher 3 seens to be the first game that to be able to keep the story going and be truly open world and even that isnt a sure thing yet since the game only comes out next year.

 

Zelda games should play and feel exactly like Zelda games, this atempt to make the game be somethign it is not is what got ppl upset with Final Fantasy and Square Enix in the first place, dont try to make an Elder Scrolls Zelda make a Zelda Zelda.

Love the art style of it, not a fan of the new Link though, he looks too girly... but yeah, graphically the game looks gorgeous though, lol :P


I genuinely thought Link was a girl. Not even joking lol. Anyone notice the lack of a sword?

Me, for a second i thought it was Zelda. I also noticed the no sword thing. He also looks like a native american so may the master sword is not that important in this game.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

looks very very good, but in motion there was a lot of visible aliasing (atleast in my stream), are these screens "brushed up" ?

I will be extremely annoyed if there's no sword. I don't care about the Master Sword, but I need a standard blade.



Well, this is new.

Hated Skyward Swort artstyle, but somehow this one makes me giddy. They're nearly identical, and I can't pinpoint why I feel this way....

*grasps pitchfork*

Blasphemy! Link has to dress in green!

 

Ejem... I like what I see, but I'm more interested in how it will play.

Well we all know it's not going to look like that, why do they always release these polished up screenshots?


They aren't polished screenshots, is just from a clearly polished up BS trailer they trying to pass off as gameplay.

I think the new Link is a very fresh take on him! Also, I do think swordplay might be less important here. After all, we have the gamepad, which can't really be used to make swordplay more exciting.
