Yeah nice, throw the ♥♥♥♥ at 3DS and let great games come out for WiiU... That's retarded. I can't see anything stop them from releasing a game for both consoles.

Enough of this damn toon Link.

Re: Aonuma hints at next game in Hyrule Hystoria

Have you guys been checking up on Retro's secret project? You know, the "one that everyone wants them to do?"

Well, some extremely intriguing information has popped up today, concerning their developer team and whatnot.

They've hired Uncharted 3 and Darksiders concept artists.

Here's what Eric Kozlowsky - a concept artist that worked on Uncharted 3 - had to say:

Quote:
Alas I am going to shelve it for a little while as I am going to work on another project that I am super excited about. I can't talk about it too much but if all goes well it might just be one of my crowning achievements as an artist....

Also, the same artists mentioned something about the game's "crunch time" on his twitter, meaning that it's in the last stages of development.

And Miyamoto's recent sayings about "Retro working on Zelda a possibility?"

Ooooh yeah, now ♥♥♥♥'s gettin' real.

I honestly can't see this being anything else besides Zelda. What other aside from Metriod and, what other game would be considered a "crowning" achievement" to take part in? I know that sounds crazy, as we've just had one, but why else would they hire concept artists who've worked on adventure games, especially the critically acclaimed Uncharted Series?

I'm callin' it: Western take on Zelda, and a dark one at that.

Re: Aonuma hints at next game in Hyrule Hystoria

Yeah... I'm definitely not seeing something big out of the quote. It is likely just at the idea stage right now, and if anything, this is going to be a quiet year for nintendo. I do see the next zelda game being for either the 3ds or the wiiu though. I'm sure they could put it on the AT or between SS and OoT. But seriously, I think that the "western take on zelda" idea is an iffy idea.

As much as I want to believe this is true, I don't think it will be a Zelda project.

I am intrigued as to what it could possibly be.

Re: Aonuma hints at next game in Hyrule Hystoria

Well, from what I can gather, they've hired.

- Top Concept artists/level designers who have worked on adventure and/or fantasy games.

- It's an game that "everyone wants them to do." In other words, not a brand new, fresh IP (unless is this is a revival of Ravenblade, lol.)

- Something considered to be a "crowning achievement" to work on.

- Nintendo took down his damn twitter once the info got out, suggesting that it's something very important.

It's either Metroid or Zelda. As crazy as it sounds, I have a feeling it's one of these two.

PLEASE let it be so. I'm so anxious about the next Zelda game, that if they put at least one game in the hands of Retro, I'd be at ease.

Re: Aonuma hints at next game in Hyrule Hystoria

I don't want to jump the gun and set myself up for disappointment, but my gut tells me Retro is going to be involved with the next Zelda.

For one thing, after the Wind Waker backlash, I don't see Nintendo pulling another bait and switch. They showed a darker styled Zelda demo at E3 last year and I expect the actual Wii U Zelda will look similar.

I think Twilight Princess showed that Nintendo themselves were out of their element in creating a darker, more realistic, "western" styled game. Perhaps Nintendo was self-aware of this fact and thus enlisted Retro for this task.

This is potentially the best thing that could happen. I've never been against the "realistic" style in general, just the way it was presented in Twilight Princess. In contrast to Twilgiht Princess, the environments of Metroid Prime were vibrant and interesting. I will be thrilled if they can bring that atmosphere to Zelda. It gives me hope for a modern day Forest Temple.

I see this as a collaborative project. Nothing I've read from Aonuma suggests that he won't be involved in the next game. It could be that Mario Kart 7 was a sort of testing ground to see how an east/west team could work together. Here's the Miyamoto quote for reference:

“First of all, let me talk a little bit more in detail about how we collaborated with Retro Studios this time. Of course, they were taking care of the game designing aspect. Specifically, they were taking care of the design of the courses and the artwork about that. But when it comes to the gameplay and the control mechanism itself, that’s being taken care of by EAD once again.

“People often say that videogames made by Western developers are somehow different in terms of taste for the players, in comparison with Japanese games. I think that means that the Western developers and Japanese developers, they are good at different fields. And that resulted in a different taste in [their games]. Mario Kart, I believe, was good in order to express that kind of different taste because we have many kinds of different courses for the Mario karts to run and race around. So for each of the different courses, we could identify: Retro is supposed to take care of this course, and EAD is going to do that, and such and such. Then, we were able to join forces in order to realize a variety of different courses, a variety of different tastes. I think that’s one reason how it worked out well between a Japanese development team and a Western development team.

“As you know, we have already collaborated with Retro for the Metroid Prime series in the past. And I think when we talk about any other franchise, Zelda might be a possible franchise for that collaboration.”


The first paragraph caught my interest because I think it might be directly applicable to this hypothetical Zelda. For MK7, apparently Retro designed some of the courses and the artwork but the core gameplay and controls were still developed by Nintendo.

Then, of course, there is the fact that he specifically mentions Zelda as a possibility for collaboration. It's not a confirmation, but it is an explicit suggestion nonetheless.

As people probably know by now, I was pretty happy with Skyward Sword, so I'm one of those people who still want Nintendo around to build on what they started . As great as Retro is, I still want Nintendo in the equation. What I think we might be getting here is the best of both worlds. Art-style and graphics designed by Retro and a control scheme designed by Nintendo, with both teams contributing to the level design and general content of the game.

While I do think Retro deserves an opportunity to develop their own franchise, this is too promising an opportunity to pass up. I think this is a project that could take Zelda back into the mainstream and really unite the fan-base for once.

Wow! If retro worked on a Zelda game and it's in crunch time, then that could be a Wii U launch title. That would be amazing.

That's what you do, intentionally or unintentionally. As you may have noticed, the last 2 toon-Zeldas were a total dissaster. And saying that the 3DS should carry on with that is throwing the ♥♥♥♥ at 3DS while saving proper games for WiiU..... For absolutely no reason.

I don't really read the names, mostly scan the messages when lookin' at threads, but my bad, excuses are in place

I don't think the last 2 toon link games were the best but I was talking about the potential of real WW graphics! like the game itself! I mean that would look gorgeous on 3DS and on WiiU!! I think WW was a great game and the style is universal! I have uglier games on my xbox360 than Wind Waker. But I do approve that the conrols and fake toonlink style from PH and ST was rubbish.

I just want teh 3DS game to control like OOT3DS but look like WW.

I just hope that they don't make another PH or ST like you say.

From what I've heard they're looking to make a 2D top down view LttP style game where the 3DS adds layers in 3D to fit the gameplay. So the 3D isn't just a gimmick.
If they do it well I don't mind. But I'd rather have a full 3D worthy 3DS Zelda title! and make itquick!! hha ^^

I hope I cleared my point of view, and I did not mean any disrespect, you have been around the forums a lot longer than I do so hope you understand my humble vision ^^

Well I'm not falling in love with that idea either... I don't think WW-graphics are as good as people say. But that's just me.

Nobody said that the top-down view will happen. It's just a dream Anouma (I think) has. And that's just one person, he can't make a huge decision like that alone.
But I'm hoping for a game in OoT-style. It would be a shame not to use the new graphics, because they are good.

Now I do thank you.
