That looks pretty cool. It's probably a direct sequel to TP, judging by the Link artwork, but we'll see.

Camera's were banned from the little Miyamoto round table, so no picture-taking allowed.

However, someone who was there confirmed that the blue girl looked a lot like the Queen Fairy from Wind Waker.



And in front of her an adult link with his back turned to the camera and his head off to the side.




This is the first thing I thought of when I seen her.

And I thought I was going to be the only one.

Other things she reminds me of- The Rito [the flying race in WW, right?], and Vaati, for some strange reason.

TP art style Wind Waker sequel?

Maybe it'll link the two together...

I giggle at the thought that he wields her as a sword.

Doesn't Wind Waker follow a similar theme as LttP/OoT/TP? I mean, there are many differences, sure, however the underlying theme of challenging Ganondorf is also present in WW. In many ways, Ganondorf and Andross share a similarity by the fact that they both keep returning in each game. (with some exceptions)

Let me run through the series:
LoZ
Dungeons: 8
Plot: Rescue Zelda
Final Boss: Ganon

AoL
Dungeons: 6
Plot: Kill Ganon's henchmen
Final Boss: Shadow Link

LttP
Dungeons: 3+7
Plot: Kill Aghanim
Final Boss: Ganon

LA
Dungeons: 8
Plot: Awaken the Wind Fish
Final Boss: Nightmares

OoT
Dungeons: 3+6
Plot: Kill Ganondorf
Final Boss: Ganon

MM
Dungeons: 4
Plot: Get back Majora's Mask
Final Boss: Majora

Oo(A/S)
Dungeons: 8 (16 linked)
Plot: Beat Veran/Onox
Final Boss: Veran/Onox (Ganon linked)

WW
Dungeons: 2+2
Plot: Save sister, beat Ganondorf
Final Boss: Ganondorf

FSA
Levels: 8
Plot: Defeat Vaati
Final Boss: Ganon

MC
Dungeons: 5
Plot: Defeat Vaati
Final Boss: Vaati

TP
Dungeons: 3+4
Plot: Defeat Zant
Final Boss: Ganondorf

PH
Dungeons: 3+3
Plot: Save Tetra/Zelda, Defeat Bellum
Final Boss: Bellum Knight

Now that I look at it, LttP, OoT, WW, TP, and PH are all similar in that it's "get 3 items, get sword of awesomeness (except in PH), then get more stuff so that you can win". But the most similar are LttP, OoT, and TP. WW and PH have fewer dungeons and more exploration, and the overall feel is more comical and light.

I would not mind this, nor a prequel.

The underlying theme with all games that have Ganon(dorf) somewhere in them is the actual "Legend" of Zelda. AKA; When the Triforce of Courage, Wisdom and Power come together, the Triforce is born.

That's the problem with Ganon. All he does every game, albeit with different timing, is kidnap Zelda (Wisdom) to lure Link (Courage) to him and get to create the Triforce. But he never does anything to actually influence it. And the only time he actually has the brains to do it, (Wind Waker) we get the plothole of: "YOU DIDN'T TOUCH IT FIRST GANON HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" Which still makes me cringe every time I think about it.

So I hope that in this new game, they can get whatever bad guy to either: A. Have a very good reason to stay away from Link early on, or B. Have him actually pursue Link with greater force. Any and all Zelda games have no plot because the "Legend of Zelda" being the way it is, Link needs to stand next to Ganon/Bad Guy AND Zelda before anything can actually happen. There is never any suspense.

However, since Ganon actually loses the Triforce of Power at the end of Twilight Princess, perhaps something interesting can happen again.

I had looked at that, and figured that the Goddesses had deemed him unworthy of the tri-force of power - either that, or Ganondorf had lost his desire for power.

You know what'd be really awesome? If the villain in the next game happens to be a trusted friend. Oooohooohooo.

As you can see in this picture and almost every time Ganon shows it off, the top Triforce piece is Power, lower right is Courage and lower left Wisdom. I always interpreted this as Wisdom and Courage being necessary to combat Power, and keep the Triforce balanced.

The only things shown in TP that have anything remotely to do with the actual Triforce are 3 scenes; The one played directly after you leave the Lakebed Temple, Ganondorf's "execution" and subsequent banishing to the Twilight Realm, and the very end of the game.

I'm not going to try to explain the end of TP as it's confusing as hell, but it seems the part that killed him was the Power piece disappearing and the wound created by first the sage sword and then the Master Sword finally begun to actually hurt him.

The "Zant breaks his neck!" part wasn't all that important I think.

My brother showed me the image and mentioned the Master Sword connection. It ties with the Japanese legend of tsukumogami, in which objects develop their own soul which emerges at the 100th year. Considering the sword's probable age, it is a possibility.

And yeah, after ages of lurking, I've posted again sweatdrop.gif

Good god, I almost didn't recognize you. Welcome back!

Not to mention a plausible theory you've got there.

That theory does seem like the most plausible one. Excellent work Sam-chan!

It’s been a long time coming, but the next big major console Zelda game is now officially less than a year away! Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata confirmed in an interview today that a new Zelda game for the Wii will be coming out before the end of 2010.

The Zelda team have been giving hints about the content of the game for a couple of months now, and have confirmed that they will reveal a lot more about the game at E3 2010. Zelda Director Eiji Aonuma had this to say back in November 2009: “So far, the basic flow of the Zelda games is you’re exploring a field, you go to a dungeon, you conquer it and return to the field. We’re looking at altering that traditional flow. That’s all I can share, and I can’t say more until E3 next year.”

Aonuma has also stated that the last big console Zelda game, Twilight Princess, didn’t fully complete Nintendo’s objective of creating the most realistic and immersive Zelda experience ever, and says that Zelda Wii will take what they’ve built in Twilight Princess and adapt it for a more realistic playing experience.


From Zelda Universe. We'll probably learn more about it at E3 this year, since it's supposed to come out before the end of the year.
