I downloaded the trailer from the eShop and watched it in 3D.

The sense of depth is pretty nice. The difference between lower and higher levels really stands out.

They are technically different enemies.

No.

We had this discussion in the Nintendo Direct announcement thread.

And I made this:




Notice how few of the positions say "Flagship," and most of them say "Capcom."

Most of the people from the Oracle / Minish Cap teams continued to work on Capcom games after Nintendo EAD decided to make their own dedicated Zelda portable games. A few defected to the Nintendo ecosystem, but even then, they mainly worked on Kirby + Pokemon spinoffs.

This is a commonly held gaming misconception.

I'm so happy they went in this direction. I've been waiting for a top down handheld Zelda in the LTTP style for a while. I can understand why people are a bit skeptical of the art and color palette based on the trailer but we only really saw one dungeon and a bit of the overworld.

I start beginning to like to art style.
It's just the change from the old style to the new style that is weird.

But after all, this could be one of the best zelda games ever.

Nope didn't know that, this explains why everyone says that the oracle games are made by capcom.

Alright thanks, I knew about the director being the same.

I love LTTP and it looks really awesome... in concept. The platforms that appear from nowhere and the artstyle looks kinda bad. Maybe it's better on 3ds screen? The walk on walls thing looks cool too.

Cautiously hyped

I held off on commenting on the graphics as some people said it looks better in 3D and yeah, that trailer on eShop looks SIGNIFICANTLY better. Still not sure about the artstyle, but then again it's just ALttP... in 3D!

Very excited though, Paper Link can be interesting if it's implemented well.

Cause it looks worse in 3D and those things arent that big a deal. Every other game seems to do just fine without gimmicks, and its not as if games touted as unplayable in 2D like 3D Land were seriously built around 3D.. Pretty simple. But hey, thats the great thing about the 3DS, you can play with your hideous 3D while the rest of us "dodongo turds and cuckoo shits" can play in 2D. Options are great.

Do you think this is going to include a remake of the original LTTP game? Otherwise, it doesn't make much sense to remake the original layouts as directly as they have.

I watched it on the XL. Link jumps right out of the screen on those bouncy things. Not sure what level my slider was set to but I ducked lol.

okay sure. it's not over saturation. it's a specific effect that simulates the bright glare you get around brighter things. before we had a way of doing HDR, it was used a lot, last gen. basically it's light bleeding out of the bright thing into the not bright thing next too it.

this I'm seeing some oversaturation of colours and some rim lighting on the trees, but no bloom.

The Wind Waker HD shots from the last big direct had bloom applied to the sky. If I remember right, Skywards Sword does the same thing.
