I was wondering what ZU would like better, a new reincarnation of Demise, or a good old classic resurrection of Ganon. So what would you like better, a new main antagonist that is Demise's reincarnation, or have Ganon resurrected once again? Why?
Demise it cool, but very generic, just like Bellum/Malladus, unfortunately. (I'm evil because I'm evil villains) Ganondorf at least has the benefit of sometimes acting human.
Think about it: Ganondorf was quite generic himself untill Wind Waker expanded on his motivation as to why he wants to conquer Hyrule.
So if they decided to put Demise back as the villian they could use that opportunity to expand on his motivation and background like they did with Ganondorf in Wind Waker.
Who knows, his motivation can very well be like Ganondorf's.
I want a new major/reoccurring villain outside of Demise' curse. Now, every time Ganondorf reincarnates or a new villain that derives from Demise appears, we know the basis' behind their existence. Before, there was always some speculation on how the villain rose to power, but now we know that the Link vs Demise' hatred is part of an inevitable cycle.
Personally, I want a new main villain, because now we know that every Ganon is just a reincarnation of Demise' hated, and I want this new villain to be outside of Demise' curse. This can be done in two ways, either create a setting in an era where Demise' curse finally runs dry because Link keeps on killing the reincarnation, and then plot that game thousands of years after the most recent (timeline-wise) game in either the AT or the CT. However, by denying Demise' curse, and showing that the curse is not immortal disrespects Demise' name and reduces the epicness of Skyward Sword, even if I am tired of Demise' curse after years of playing 25 years of the developer's work.
Preferably, Nintendo can create a whole new Zelda Universe and then they can start making games without the constrains of the other games. A game where you only know that it is a Zelda game is because there is a Link, a Zelda, a Hyrule, and dungeons. The plot can have completely new elements (no more need for a Master Sword, Sacred Realm? What is that?, Trifoce is non-existent, Villain is more realistic Hylian or maybe Human instead of some magical demon or a reincarnation of some magical demon.)
Nintendo can learn at most something from Final Fantasy series. Because the games exist in a new world, the setting feels fresh every time (although FF has been lacking in the gameplay department, but that's their fault and I am sure Nintendo won't half-ass their Zelda games, hopefully). Continuity doesn't matter anymore because there is an official timeline, theorizing is or will be dead outside of fan-fiction so Nintendo has no more obligation to cater to the timeline fanatics. Nintendo itself has said how the timeline hinders game development, and it is tim to allow the development team to unleash their full potential without having the past games cloud their ideas.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
A completely new enemy unconnected to Demise's reincarnating hatred. I do feel it's time for someone truly new and original to appear, someone with a deep background and motives behind their actions, someone who isn't truly "evil" and is so much more complicated than that. Maybe, someone who makes the so-called "good guys" appear to be the evil ones.
