Completely agree. I'm replaying Wind Waker, and the Deku Leaf is one of the best items in 3D Zelda. It is a genuinely open-ended item, and a ton of fun to boot.

I do think it's a good thing that the mole-mitts are context sensitive, though.

What? The sailcloth is clearly a deku-leaf like item, except carrying only the parachute like features. It's context-sensitive, but you can use it any time you're jumping- meaning you can z-target, press A and use the sailcloth easily.

Are you sure? Like, can it be used when jumping off any given ledge, or only when you're skydiving or near one of those owl statues?

If you're right, this control method would actually be preferable since you wouldn't need to equip it as an item. You could just use it on the fly. That would be great and I hope this is the case.

Correct, look at every recent video where Link jumps from a ledge. The sailcloth appears on the b button.

Ah, that's cool! And it really makes sense, because you can't use other items while jumping anyway.

Sweet. I didn't notice that because nobody in the videos I've watched ever uses it.

I like the idea of streamlining the controls as much as possible. It's very efficient to not have to assign items to the item buttons if there is a more direct method. Perhaps they could do a similar thing with the iron booths (if they appear in the game)

On that note, I hope to see some kind of dashing boot, or possibly upgrades to the stamina meter.

It was said there are certain medallions that increase certain factors such as how long you run or how long you swim.

Honestly, this is the highest ledge I could find Link jumping off and there's no sailcloth button =/

It's around 0:50


Are you sure you're not just thinking of whenever Link jumps off his bird? Whenever he's in that freefall position the sailcloth (B button) appears.

Ugh, I hate how you have to assign the sail to a button in TWW...



They should definitely bring back the Pegasus Boots. It would fit with the whole sky theme of SS as well.

Sounds promising.

Regarding swimming, while I love equipping Link with a new tunic (and am in no way opposed to another blue tunic), it would be an interesting challenge if there was a water themed temple that contained numerous under water portions without the game providing you a tunic. In other words, working quickly would be an important factor. I think such a dungeon could prove very unnerving, especially if some segments had you underwater for fairly significant periods of time. Of course, there could be underwater air bubble dispensers as well. It would also make sense if the water tunic was located in such a dungeon (or why necessarily a tunic? A water "mask" might be a nice change of pace)

Re: Japanese site updated! 10/14 (SPOILERS!)

Oh, so it doesn't appear until Link has fallen for a while. I'm guessing that Link can't float much horizontally with it, due to lack of wind (and magic). It's probably mainly to break long falls.

Unfortunately, I have a feeling you may be right. I guess that leaves for an upgrade, no?

This is hardly related, but I hope the next game features a child Link. In my opinion, child Link should be the norm, not the exception. Further, I think a child Link is better suited to use "quirky" items that my seem odd for an adult (such as a Deku Leaf).

Sailcloth->Roc's Cape upgrade would be sweet.

Yes there it. It shows up right before Link lands the jump.

Really cool! The Deku Leaf is my favorite item in Wind Waker!

Isn't that how it is, though? Three Zelda games out of 16 feature a grown up Link (that's including SS).

I do want to see Child Link again without the Toon Link version, though. Enough of that, Nintendo.

Re: Japanese site updated! 10/14 (SPOILERS!)



Looking at the map again, I had a thought. Isn't it more likely that Lake Hylia is over on the west side somewhere, near the desert, like usual? And if so, is there still hope for seeing the Zora? The video of Lake Floria mentions the Parella as [I]one[/I] of the water dwellers. I know the Zora aren't picture in the intro with the goddess and the other land-dwellers, but is it possible not all the races in the game were depicted there? I mean if the Parella are but [I]one[/I] of the water dwellers, then there has to be at least one more water dwelling people not being represented there. We can identify all of the races present, and none but the Parella are water dwellers.

^ I think they would've appeared in the intro with all the other races if that was the case. They might be rebels and therefore not depicted, but I don't ecpect them to be in SS. This pisses me off because the Zoras > Gorons.
