More Twilight Princess Details Emerge 109

Posted by Zonk
from the ninja-princess dept.
Press the Buttons has a link to an interview with Nintendo veterans Miyamoto and Aonuma. In it they reveal the identity of the cloaked woman in the trailer and more information about where in the Zelda timeline the new game falls. Press the Buttons has commentary as well: "From time to time I still see posts on online message boards claiming that Twilight Princess is the Zelda game 'we should have gotten instead of Wind Waker', a train of thought that extends from the fact that some people are still against Wind Waker's highly animated visual style despite having never played the game."

    Most people prejudged Wind Waker because they were teased with the more realistic graphics, and then discovered an entirely new game was coming. The simplistic-looking Cel-shaded game disappointed us.

    I've played it all the way thru. The gameplay really deserves kudos for trying something different with the seafaring Link; however, the mechanic became incredibly boring as the game wore on. As for cartoony, it achieved a coherent style.

    Here come the Spoilers for those who plan to play Windwaker

    I disliked the fact that Link and Zelda were completely different and just looked like the original Link and Zelda. Its actually a "side story" variant. The final battle with Gannon was very easy compared to all the other Zelda games. I understand this one is a direct sequel with the real Link in it. I guess in the far future, their race's skin becomes smooth and posterized.
  • Well, they could go with a half-life style dialog system. Where the main character NEVER talks, but everyone else does.

    Actually thats how it currently works. In all the Zelda games that have dialog (and all the Mario games too at that) the main character never talks (except to make grunting noises in Zelda, or to say "Itsa meee... Marrrrrio" in Mario)

    Uh, according to the article, this Link is, like most Links, a new one. Link and Zelda aren't meant to be chracters, exactly, but the eternal personalities of the Hero and of the Princess in Distress.

    You're missing 2 from your count...

    Forsaken Fortress
    Dragon Roost
    Forbidden Woods
    Tower of the Gods
    Earth Temple
    Wind Temple
    Ganon's Tower

    That looks like 7 dungeons to me.

    they are not prerendered.

To thine own self be true. (If not that, at least make some money.)
