    Yeah, I like Pokemon, but early game stuff is boring as hell to watch. Back to Zelda!

    Seems technology vs fantasy and Sheika involvement theories were correct. That's awesome.

    Heres to hoping for a good emulator so I can defy Nintendo's selfishness and play this game.

    This actually looks really fun, but I doubt I'll get a Nintendo console for it. :(

    I'm pretty sure I'm gonna end up getting an NX just for this. :lol: I must have watched the trailer about a gazillion times by now, and have been watching gameplay videos all day. It just looks so goddamn pretty, and so much fun.

    Kinda crazy to think that what we've been shown at E3 so far is only about 1-2% of the whole thing, apparently.

    It seems to be getting quite a few of the awards. Maybe a delayed game is eventually good.

    ^If I end up with an incredible game, I'm all for making it wait so it can be polished and perfected. I hope that's the case here.

    It's only going to run at 720p on the Wii U, by the way. Presumably the NX version will run at 1080p. As long as they fix the frame rate problems it should be great.

    ^ That I didn't know. Is that what the people at E3 are saying? I did suspect it though, since I found it strange that the trailer or any of the gameplay footage was uploaded in 720p. It also kinda makes sense, given how ginormous the game is supposed to be and how good it looks, and the Wii U's not-so-mighty processing power.

    I don't mind too much though. The difference between 720p and 1080p in gaming was never that stark to me. I'm also happy as long the frame rate doesn't drop below 30-40 fps. Knowing Nintendo though, I don't think they would release a ZELDA game that wasn't as polished as a brand new British luxury car, especially when such an installment could potentially shape how Nintendo fares as one of the top gaming supergiants of the industry.

    With that said, I am still getting it for NX once it launches. :lol:

    Oh Gods I want this in my life!

    I may be on a Wii-U trip in the new year for the Wind Waker HD too. Presuming Ocarina can be obtained via their network?

    I have serious love for Zelda games.. For me, a console purchase is enough for all the titles I can get. How was Twilight Princess, by the way? I never read much about it..

    ^ I'm fairly certain you can get OoT from their e-shop, same as Majora's Mask.

    Twilight Princess was absolutely great. It was a bit darker than most other games (save for Majora's Mask, which is low-key messed up) and the story felt a lot larger in scope. If you ever play it, make sure you don't play the Wii version with the clunky-ass motion controls, but the Gamecube version with the regular controls. Unlike Skyward Sword, the motion controls in TP are atrocious. Or, better yet, play Twilight Princess HD, which I hear is quite a bit better than the original.

    Also, Midna is hands down the best companion Link has ever had, and one of my favorite characters in the whole franchise. That beautiful little imp. :wub:

    The Wii U version is the best version by far. Gives the game a new lease. Still not WW/MM level, but takes it out of the argument for worst 3D Zelda.

    Just gonna leave these here for whoever missed the Switch presentation last night:

    English version:


    Japanese version:


    The game looks ridiculous. I've never been so hyped for a new Zelda game. I really hope it's as good as it looks.

    I also hope that they give us a language selection feature for the new voice acting, as I liked the Japanese voices just a tad better than the English ones.
