Someone explain why this game won't be too easy? It seems easy even with a simple sword, let alone when you have one that can fill further that the whole screen!

Maybe the appeal of the game will be something other than its challenge?

I chuckled at the boomerang "stunning" enemies. <3

Wasn't there a post by an Atlus guy saying the demo for the game was really hard?

Was Zelda super easy?
Add in 15 enemies at once with a pattern or even 5 of those "seeking spiders" and it'll be a little harder.

You mean floormasters?

Or wallmasters. Shoot. Floormasters are from WW.

The website had background music which was overlaid over the videos and is now missing in the YT clips.
But there was music in some of the clips. But I'm sure you're right. No one in their right mind would have a game like this and not have their distincly Zelda-like themesong during the overworld bits.

I wonder what kind of influence From really has. The website states Silicon Studio as the developer and while I know they are a Middleware developer I wouldn't be surprised if they also did (most of) the game design. Shouldn't be too demanding to copy a 20 year old game concept.

Im mostly flabbergastered to that you think this game WILL be easy. Its like youre judging it by the screen shots and go ''yup, this game is too easy my foresight tells me so''.

Ok, I'm all for this game but the giant swords are just getting silly.
Maybe it's limited use. Maybe the person playing is way ahead in the game and is going back through earlier parts with weaker enemies. Maybe there's enemies so big/strong that it makes the sword seem small?

Games like this are the reason why I love games. More games like this please and less depressing, realistic, uncolored worlds where all you do is run around a screen shooting people online.

You only get the giant sword if you're at full health according to the person in the Atlus forums who played the demo.

this is a pretty shameless zelda clone, even the hold getting knocked back a bit when shielding against projectiles and stuff. I don't know why but the novelty of the look will wear off quickly for me.

Thankfully your character can move diagonally. I'm definitely interested in checking this out.

Now if only someone could make a Zelda 2 clone with either inspired retro sprite styled or animated (think Vanillaware) graphics.

SPELUNKERRRRRRRRRRRRR. I flipped out when I heard the remix and then nearly died laughing when he fell off the ledge.

In case you guys aren't familiar with Spelunker here's a video where you can see just how fragile the game's hero is. (May wanna shut the sound off. The dude cracks an anal sex joke 5 seconds in. Why is it so hard to find game videos without commentary nowadays?)

This reminds me that we never got PSN Spelunker over here. I guess it ain't comin'. :( Maybe I should buy a J-PSN ticket today...

I'd still not been feeling the execution that much until this most recent batch of videos. Now I'm feeling good :D Can't wait to get some impressions from JGAF.

God these guys are ridiculous. :/

Can't wait for the game though. Gonna be sooo awesome
Christ, the least RMC could do is tone down the fanboy rabies enough to make a well constructed post. The title has a typo and the first sentence doesn't even make sense: (How much more can 3D Dot Heroes rip of Zelda?) The answer to that is a lot more. ...Siiigh, RMC.

While it may look similar to original zeldas...I wouldn't down the direction the visual design this game has taken...its pretty bold...in my opinion they've taken the concept a step further...at least in design terms this is an evolution of the 2d zelda games..in no way a straight copy. Basically, I feel they got there before anyone else

He previously commented that his girlfriend was rooting for the game to be canceled. :lol

Play the included spelunker-hard mode and say that again. :p

On a more serious note, apparently your sword is only uber-big while you have max HP - get hit once and the game plays normal again.
