Boy does this look good. Nice work Nintendo. This has all the makings to be one of the best games of the year.

^ I got it up. I'm just unfamiliar with GS' new way of doing things.

Lorule...

Must have been the same person that came up with the name Wii U.

The game isn't the prettiest I have seen, but it's at least a step up from PH and ST in that regard.

I can't believe I never thought of Lorule. It makes so much sense in such a stupid way lol.

This game looks like it might have a better (or at least more eery) story to it compared to the others. It could be that Grimm fairytale appeal I'm getting from it especially from those few words from Hilda at the end and the artwork. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

So is this a pseudo remake?

Nintendo is so punny.

No it is a sequel that is set in the same world as a Link to the Past but centuries later.

Even though I just got a 3DS I'm not really excited for this. I've never played a 2D Zelda but I've never really liked the series much.

You should try out Oracle of Ages/Seasons or Link's Awakening from the eShop.

They go for cheap (relative to other things on the eShop), and are perfect examples of 2D Zelda. It's quite a bit different than 3D imo, so at least try it out. You might take a liking to it. :)

This makes me want a 3DS.

Not liking the art style at all.

Just by looking at it, I bet this will be one of those games that gets me playing for hours on end. There aren't many games like that for me, as something stupid always pops up to break my buzz.

looks pretty damn good

#22 Edited by oddballrulez (1642 posts) -

Hmmm, started off unimpressed, then was left mildly intrigued by the end of the trailer. Not sold just yet! Definitely preferred Ocarina 3D over this though (not that I've played it of course)

Now my interest for the game has been piqued. Up until now, the game hasn't really caught attention...

@Nintendo_Ownes7:

A lot of those scenes looked like they were ripped directly from ALttP though, but I'll take you guys' word for it.

More Zelda cant be a bad thing anyway.

#26 Edited by AmayaPapaya (9029 posts) -

@Chrome-: Your so creative. You should win a medal.

My most anticipated handheld game this year..

#28 Posted by DocSanchez (1584 posts) -

You could've literally written people's reactions to this game before it was even started on.

#29 Posted by AmayaPapaya (9029 posts) -

BTW anyone catch the YOUR Link part. What is their Link then? Dark Link confirmed?

Why do I get the feeling that this may be the "Twilight Princess" of handheld Zelda's?

For me, that's... not a good feeling.
