Whoa.. looks really nifty
I don't like the title though.. twilight princess doesn't sound like Zelda, more like Barbie: Twilight Princess :P

Here (http://media.cube.ign.com/media/572/572738/vids_1.html) are some more videos. I think the roundtable discussion on the game is also among these videos (don't forget to click "next page").

The "Twilight" is a world, or dimension, separate from Hyrule. Sort of like the Dark World in LTTP maybe. All I know is that it's intgral to the story, and when Link first passes over into the Twilight, he gets turned into a wolf, but gets rescued by a mysterios girl with odd powers.

Here's what I know (some spoilers maybe, I dunno): Link starts out as a ranch hand, in a remote village outside Hyrule. He wears ordinary clothes customary to taht village. His adventure begins when he's asked to attend some meeting on the behalf of the village leader, and appereantly there's a girl he likes - in one video from E3, he showed one of his most emotionally convincing faces when talking to her I've seen in a Zelda game, even if it was brief - I hope he continues to show more emotion than in previous games, and this time there appears to be a girl that Link openly likes.

Zelda's in the game, and one official concept art shows her holding a sword. Ganondorf hasn't been mentioned yet, but he may be part of the plot. The world is so vast that Link almost has to use his horse (which you can name yourself) to cross it, Anouma says. Hyrule field itself is humongous. One of the E3 demos, the horseback fight with a boss and his boar-riding minions armed with fire arrows, took palce in Hyrule field. Link can now use horseback swordplay, and Epona seems to be more easily controlled than before.

The game is "darker" than before, but not  to excaggeration. This is Zelda we're talking about after all. No blood or anything. One of the E3 demos showed Link's girl interest being shot with an arrow in the back, and taken away along with a smaller boy. The boy appeared again later, unconscious and tied to the top of the spear of the boss in command of the boar-riding minions that fought Link on Hyrule field.

I sincerely hope that this game won't feel like a repetition of Ocarina of Time - that the dungeons will have the same old puzzles, that the bosses will be the same old thing, that the plot will incorporate Zelda being kidnapped. I want her to put up a fight like she did in Wind Waker! I have faith in being proven wrong, though; the way to fight the boss of the Forest Temple was quite cool. Anouma says that they want to surpass Ocarina of Time - if they succeed in beating my most favourite game ever, I'll be in videogame heaven. :) They say that they are working heavily on perfecting the game, smoothing out the stiff-looking animations and stuff. So this game is indeed looking very, very promising.

Probably more Firefly, but that's just a guess.

Now, why would you need my DNA?  An army of clone turtles, perhaps?

An army of turtle-toast hybrids. Smart and ruthless soldiers, but also a great side dish for salmon and caviar, to be used as hors d'oeuvre or, of course, toast hawaii.

Why do I get the feeling that no-one read the post that took me several minutes to write? :P The odd helmeted girl's name is Midna by the way, and according to official sources she's a bit of an evil character.

*Is hit by thrown pieces of toast for staying on topic*

Anyway, does the game involve alot of new features, like link changing and shit
Title: Re: Zelda: Twilight Princess (!!!)
Post by: Valentine Revolution on May 31, 2005, 10:22:22 am
Well Link changes when you enter the Twilight, kinda like the Dark World from LttP although I don't think you can move freely between them until later on in the game. And there's all the horseback stuff, you can give it your own name too.

Mine is SO going to be called Binky. I dont think theres any need to award points to whoever gets that reference  :P
Title: Re: Zelda: Twilight Princess (!!!)
Post by: D14BL0 on June 08, 2005, 02:45:27 pm
I think this game's kinda straying from the classic "Zelda" theme with the whole aliens from the digital realm thing. I mean, Zelda has always been about fantasy, as opposed to sci-fi.

I dunno, though. I'm sure Nintendo will pull off something great. I mean, they managed to move away from the classic graphic styles for Wind Waker and still make it a great game, so maybe moving away from the classic environment scheme for one game might be interesting, as well. Either way, I can't wait to get this game.



Also, there's rumors floating around that when you pre-order the game, you'll get a special bonus disc, (like when you pre-ordered Wind Waker, you got OoT and Master Quest) and it will have the Wind Waker game done in the new graphic style, as opposed to the cel shading. Has anybody else heard these rumors, or is able to confirm/deny this? If this is true, then buying the new game would be worth the new Wind Waker, alone. =P

i find that difficult to believe...
Title: Re: Zelda: Twilight Princess (!!!)
Post by: Spiff on June 09, 2005, 03:36:21 am
I'm afraid those rumors are very old - they first stated that you'd recieve a bonus disc with a completely revamped Ocarina of Time when you preordered Wind Waker. There were also some 3D renders accompanying the rumor that became quite famous.

Um, I don't see any sci-fi in the new Zelda. There's the Twilight, like the Dark World in Link to the Past, and some dark evil creatures, and that's it. I've only seen some "digital" effect when the monsters appear from the Twilight, and that may just be temporary graphics. Everything is basically the classic Zelda style, it's evident if you watch the 30 minutes of game footage with commentary that most game sites have from the latest E3. Horseback sword battles, calm towns with NPCs, a giant Hyrule field, the distinct medieval fantasy feel to it, etc. But I wouldn't worry either way, I've loved every Zelda game so far (except the CD-I ones).

VistionThing: Is Binky a reference to Garfield the cat? *Gets no points regardless of if he's right or not* :D

The videos labelled "Direct-Feed (E3 2005)" are all parts of an interview, where they discuss the game with Miyamoto and the gang. Keep clicking "next page" and you'll got more of them, there are 16 parts. There are some new trailers among those videos too, I think.
