And where is the time limit everyone is freaking out over? Yeah, I really think GAF just read it wrong. I'm pretty sure there isn't a time limit in dungeons.

DS games normally look like shit in screens, but good in motion.
I'm surprised that this is looking really good in screens. Definitely looking forward to this one.

There is only one big dungeon with a timelimit, namely until the hourglass runs out. You can get more sand for the hourglass by exploration, going to other islands and beating other dungeons.

Naw. I LOVED Minish Cap's style and graphics. Actually, I loved everything about Minish Cap, but I'm really loving how this game is looking atm.

I bet that it will look fantastic in motion.

Cautiously optimistic about this one. On the plus side, it looks awesome and directly continues from TWW. On the negative side, stylus only (it killed Wario) and traveling in a boat.

That's a good question...
It could sell very well since it's much less daunting than previous Zelda games (controls) and given the immense sucess of the DS.
Hopefully PH turns out to be a worthy installment to Zelda that will keep customers wanting more.

I hope so. I also hope Mario Galaxy sells well enough that we get to see a new platformer more than twice a decade.

Ugh. This game is exactly why the DS needed stuff like texture filtering. If it had that, and the DS could push just a few more polygons per second, we'd probably be looking at the twin of Wind Waker.

Still don't know how the game will play, though. Sounds pretty shitty, but who knows.

When I played Twilight Princess, I really felt as though, EAD pulled out their penis and pissed on all other developers out there technically and artistically, and then raped them. The games lighting, scale, and sheer size is like EAD saying "look what we can do on a Gamecube", especially those draw distances. And all on 1.5GB.

After looking at these screens I feel as though they will do it again. I also think they will put even more effort in, since they haven't exactly go the appraisal they were hoping for.

Lets see what EAD can do on a mobile phone processor. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if they managed to get heatwaves over those flames. And good draw distances in too. Their programmers must be some insane MF's. good on em'.

Well, I'm not a "Zelda fan" by any stretch of the imagination, so no. But nonetheless, it just sounds dumb. But like I said, who knows. Maybe they can pull it off and make it fun. I just doubt it.

Wow, that looks superb for a DS game. Great job on the DS 3D Ninty :D.

Touch screen is going to be different, but after watching Ninja Gaiden (another awesome looking 3D DS game), it can be done intuitively.

It depends. Minish Cap bombed in Japan and the GBA had a pretty large userbase.
If this Zelda is successfull, I doubt Nintendo will make other 2D portable Zeldas...

The question is, btw, what style will Nintendo adopt after Twilight Princess's bomb in Japan. Perhaps they'll return to a Link's Adventures formula....

Nintendo didn't even keep it on shelves. And then they put ALttP under the Player's Choice logo instead. Seriously, in 2006 you couldn't find that damn game brand new anymore.

Would Nintendo change up the game just for Japan? Western Europe, and NA love us some ****ing Zelda damnit.

edit: By change, I mean any possible change in gameplay, art direction, storytelling etc. that will appeal broadly to a Japanese audience, ignoring the rest of the world who has supported the current revs (TWW, TP) with millions in sales.
