Re: Zelda characters will talk!

Without a link [no pun intended] to prove it, I don't think Nintendo will change the formula they've been using for 22 years.

Golly, I hope not. It was nice that Midna had a voice in TP, but dialog for all could spoil the ambiance.

Re: Zelda characters will talk!

I find it difficult to believe that. Nintendo wouldn't lightly dismiss the opinion held by many gamers that Zelda characters shouldn't talk. Yes, I know there are many people who think they should, but from a sales standpoint it would be an incredible risk.

I don't see what voice acting and sales have to do anything with each other. It might piss a few Zelda fans off, sure. But it might be a whole different realm of storytelling experience that brings that player closer to the characters, the plot, and the storytelling itself. Worked with the Final Fantasy series pretty well.

Nintendo has put voice acting in many of their long time franchises. Most recently, Metroid Prime 3 was introduced to voice acting that did nothing but make the game that much more epic.

Re: Zelda characters will talk!

I am all for having VA. I think done right it could only bring the characters to life.

But some might not feel the same way so I think that it should be optional. Have the VA as default and for those who dont want it can just spend a couple seconds in the Options section.

What? Where is your source that says there will be voice acting? Why make everybody else talk but Link? The reviewers hate to read? What? That does not make any sense either. Reviews have been reviewing Zelda games since the beginning and every game since then has had text dialogue. And what reviewers are you talking about?

Re: Zelda characters will talk!

Hmm... I don't think I want the Zelda characters to talk... I like it how it is now.
And, I'm "afraid", that it will just sound wierd when the game characters talk.
I prefer them as they are made now: "Text sqare" in the bottom of the screen.
Howewer, I like that they make noises.
And, I also liked that Midna talked on her language.

Re: Zelda characters will talk!

I for one think it might be cool but it also might cause mass panic throughout the zelda fan community.

Re: Zelda characters will talk!

I wouldn't mind a bit more voice acting of the NPC's, but not total Voice acting, and definitely not for Link. I like the silent protagonist.

Re: Zelda characters will talk!

the "TP is the last game of it's kind" thing?
I'm pretty sure that quote was said before it was delayed for the Wii. If that's the truth, then it's likely they were referring to the control/gameplay combo that separates Wii games from any other system.

I know, but that seemed on topic... they could be tricking us like that. but most likely not.
