First person enhancements hmm , a hint for the future? Zelda Wii U.

They've been loving experimenting with first person since Ocarina with TP and SS.

So excited for this. The ability to take selfies will be one of the greatest innovations in gaming.

Hero mode should alleviate some of the difficulty complaints with WW. Double damage and no health drops seems good.

Enhanced first person movement feels reaaaaaally suspicious as if they're vetting it for Zelda U.

Hero mode unlocked from the start is great news. Wind Waker is the most challenge free Zelda game as far as I know.

As long as it's optional and works well, that can only be good for a future Zelda. In Elder Scrolls, you also have the choice between 1st and 3rd person, but I always go for 1st because it works better for me. Similarly, I could just use 3rd person in Zelda if they ever decided to make both fully available.

OK, no, but I sure hope they actually look like Link is holding the camera instead of some photo taken by another person.

EDIT:
Also, the biggest change for me isn't listed here. When selecting a wind direction, its done by actually looking in the direction the wind will blow, instead of from a disorienting, North-is-up top-down perspective.

I'm almost positive this doesn't mean you can play in first person. I'm sure it just means that when you are in the first person mode to use items that require it it will be enhanced in some way.

Edit: Yeah.. first person with weapons it makes sense with only.

From the USGamer article

I decided to take a different approach to Wind Waker. I switch over to Link's bow and arrow and took careful aim in the first-person view by tilting the Wii U Game Pad just so and started taking out enemies from across the room. And then I noticed that Link now has a newly acquired ability to move while in first-person mode rather than being limited to panning around. So I stayed in first-person mode, plinking bad guys from a distance and shooting them again when they recovered.

So you can move at least.

This isn't new to Zelda. Skyward Sword had the same ability to move in first-person and shoot arrows. So before you rejoice/despair know that it's extremely limited and you can't play the game like this. You can't interact with anything, use your sword or most items. It's still just a novelty that I tried it out for only a few minutes.

As for the other changes they sound great.
