New Zelda 3DS Impressions and Gameplay footage

#2
Thanks! just watched sessler's impressions. Looks great! I wonder if this will change anyone's mind about the game (anyone who doesn't think the game will be good).

On one hand it's cool hearing the same boss music.

On the other hand, I would have liked different boss music. Maybe it's the first boss and it's just a throwback and then there will be different boss tunes after that.

I don't get why Nintendo doesn't put stuff like the Zelda demo on the eshop
Probably cause a lot of stuff can change since its early. Its better to have journalists talk about the game they played in a controlled environment than to have thousands of people download it then get mad when the game glitches or something is totally changed in the final release.

Vertical slices people can keep can be easily broken

If a demo unit crashes and bricks a unit at Nintendo's event, a demo crashes and no one really cares. If it happens to consumers, then that is bad.

They may have major changes planned they can explain to journalists that might turn people playing off.

It seems strange that this game is being developed by the same team as the recent zeldas. Not too say that I haven't enjoyed them but they usually have things slower paced and more hand holdey. Meanwhile this game takes a lot of effort in speeding things up such as autoscrolling text, no awkward pauses like when Link morphs, no npc companion, and overall faster gameplay.

The only irk I have about the 2D Zeldas is shielding. I could never really get it down and didn't bother with it when I could get away with that
Unlike the original LttP where you used your shield simply by remaining stationary, it appears LttP2 will have its own designated button (R).

Maybe they're *gasp* listening to criticism?

Turning into a mural to dodge incoming floating tile attacks (3:09 in the Sessler video). Clever. I could definitely see that being used in a boss fight at some point.

Probably because of the handheld game design philosophy, I'd imagine. That or they're looking into speeding things up in general after all the complaints about recent 3D Zelda's. Or, it could just be this "type" of Zelda.

Hope this is a stepping stone for Wii u. C'mon Nintendo, just do what you did in this game!

I guess we will find out with Zelda Wii U. Hopefully they have as I love all of the 3D Zeldas but sometimes it takes a lot of effort to get into it again due to constant gameplay interuptions/taking control away from the player. I overall like them but there are definetly smaller things they could fine tune to make the games better.

Well TMC, PH and ST would disagree with you as those were slower and shared some of those things that console zeldas do. Although I really enjoyed TMC.
