^Child, stop embarrassing yourself when you are in the presences of greatness. It makes ME look bad.

I'm not picking sides here, but you're kinda being an *sshole for no reason here... Just chill dude, it's the internet.

On topic: I don't really mind the current toon Link but I would like to see a new, refreshed design of him. Like mentioned before, Mario hasn't changed drastically during all these years but there have always been some small changes and detail that are noticeable enough.

Just compare Mario from Mario 64 to the Galaxy Mario. Do the same with toon Link, doesn't need to be more then that.

Twilight Princess looks good, but the style seems a bit too generic compared to Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask. It lacks charm.

Personally, I'd like for Nintendo to go for a midway point. I would love to see something like this with today's technology:

It's a fantastic style that is rather cartoony, but the dramatic lighting and shading gives it an edgier look. This style could pretty much fit any type of Zelda game.

Re: Toon Link is over used

I totally agree with you Moe Joe. I really want to see beautiful Cel-shading on the Wii, I really can't stand some of ST's graphics... Wind Waker was a beautiful looking game and I wouldn't mind more of that Toon Link. Other wise I think Toon Link is used up.

Wow! You think?

The differences between me and the other *******s on ZU is that I know I'm a cruel douchebagish *******, thus I know what I do is right and wrong and it does bother my sub-conscious feelings.

Looks like they were gonna make Toon Link a teenager or an young adult. I wouldn't mind how that would work out. He looks like just a little bit how he was designed for the 80s cartoon.

Classic cartoonly style. Children usually have large heads and small bodies.

I wanted Cel-Link on another console, too. He looked a lot better with the graphics from TWW

I rather liked it. TP was supposed to be realistic. It would look bad with cartoony graphics like MM or OoT... Especially the Link in TP o.o;;;

Re: Toon Link is over used

I don't have a problem with Toon Link being the official Link on handhelds. It's much better that way.

I'm going to have an issue if they make him in another home console Zelda. Home console Zeldas, please keep this real.

Re: Toon Link is over used

I agree that they should stop using toon link in the latest zelda games. It is really starting to get old, I want to see more of OoT link but updated.

Re: Toon Link is over used

I do think he has seen to much of the spotlight recently, but I think he should stay
(mainly because he's in ST)

Re: Toon Link is over used

i like toon link personally and for me the most amazing ending to a Zelda game was ST which is toon link. but i would also like to see a more mature art style for the console games for the DS toon link is perfect in my opinion and i would also like to see an art style that was used for MM/OoT like mojo joe joe, because i love that art style its cartoony but not cartoony if you know what i mean but other than that i think toon link should stay with the hand held system thing it just seems right on the DS.

Re: Toon Link is over used

Toon Link should stay.

Why?
Because he's way ****ing better than Link in Brawl.

I personally don't care. I get butterflies of joy in my tummy when I look at Twilight Princess AND Wind Waker's graphics.

Re: Toon Link is over used

I like Toon more than 'regular' Link so I don't think Nintendo should stop using him. Maybe because I loved TWW, TMC, and ST so much.

I also really like that early concept art. A bit of change to Toon's design would be neat and a sort of 'breath of fresh air'.

I too preferred the sketchy concept art of tWW compared to the sleek cartoon concept art of ST and PH.
