  1. Maybe have multiple characters to play as? Think of it like Batman Arkham City, you play as Batman (Link) the whole game, but in some sections, you can control Catwoman (Sheik) and it corresponds with the story. Who knows, maybe fit in some Ganon parts also.

    Assuming Sheik isn’t DLC.

    lol

    1. If they were to do that, id prefer Zelda/Sheik too be a constant character you can play as, like a very elaborate item, same way those statues you possess in Wind Waker, you can go to 2 different parts of a dungeon, to solve crazy puzzles, give Sheik more mobility, climbing ect and the bow and other items. Could play into enemy design too, like those statue dudes that shoot lasers, have Link block with his shield, then control Zelda to hit it in the back or something.

      3. 1. Sorry, Zelda should just follow him around being useless and invisible to terrible enemy AI, while provide boring dialogue that’s “good”, serving no reason to add anything to the game other than give morons the impression of good writing.

      4. You’re pretty “consistant”?

        Oh god… You’re “consistant”? Really?

        Let’s take a look at how “consistant” (have I driven your spelling error into your anemic hipster brain yet?) you are!

        1. Earlier this year you said this about BioShock Infinite:

        “Ironically we did get a 10/10 the other day with Bioshock Infinite, that game, once again, has redifined the first person shooter genre, as well as story telling in video games and creating a world thats believable, and themes better than any other game to date, with a NPC AI that is unmatched, which compliments all of those things.”

        Now you see the game as mediocre.

        2. Last year, i could have swore you hated GTA with every fiber of your being and swore you would never play another agme in the series. Than this year you called GTA V “very good”.

        I could probably find several more examples of your inconsistency (it’s spelled with an “e” genius).

        Like

      5. Oh dear, i spelt a word wrong, how dreadful.

        Bioshock WAS a great game until you play more of it and it falls apart and is just fine, nothing more, story is garage, AI is still pretty good, but it’s not 10/10, and i admit that, the issue is when people still think it’s 10/10.
        The first 3 hours of Bioshock Infinite are amazing but it falls apart after that.

        As for GTAV, ive stated how i didn’t like other GTA’s….how does that make me flip flop when GTAV wasn’t even out yet?
        GTAV is good, it’s fun…until you beat it, then it’s boring.

      6. “GTAV is good, it’s fun…until you beat it, then it’s boring.”
        :0 NO WAY, REALLY??!!!!

        This is the case with a ton of games, Nintendo games as well. Zelda doesn’t have any more replay value than GTA. In fact, it has less. In GTA there’s still a shitload to do after you beat it, this is not the case with Zelda. Story is done = game is done, which is okay, since you don’t buy the game for the stuff you can do after you finish it, but what you have to do in order to finish it.

      7. Say what you will but no character development? Do you know anything, like, at all???????? That was the Zelda game with the LARGEST character development. Link goes from being a lazy school student to a HERO, Zelda goes from a peaceful girl to a goddess who realizes she has large responsibilities, Ghirahim is one of the BEST villains the series has ever seen and Groose, fucking GROOSE, the guy goes from being an asshole everyone hates to one cool motherfucker. I felt the development in every inch of my bone, so don’t you sit there and bash Skyward Sword for “character development”. Go ahead and bash it for whatever else you found “sub-par” (even though I think the game ROCKS and is one of my all time favorite Zeldas) but don’t try and bash the character development when it’s the strongest the series has EVER seen.

SS though is literally shit. it felt lame compared to MM and WW, it felt like it was trying to be to much OOT, so it felt dull to me.

        its still great though, the levels music environments. i just need the gamecube version because i remember it was way better because the controls actual work!!!! actually i just got four swords for 15$, TP is better than that i think.

      There’s absolutely nothing a “mature” undertone would bring significant to the series.
      Nintendo can, and probably will do the better thing, and just make it a good story in the way Disney do. There’s nothing “mature” about Disney, yet they can make grown men cry.

      2. Not just visually and the fighting. I mean, the whole plot of the game. Put it this way, although it always delivers, Zelda games’ essence is “Save Hyrule from the evil guy and rescue the princess”. Yeah, as you keep progressing, the story adds more and more to it and in the end you just didn’t save Hyrule by getting rid of the bad guy, but also for all the things you did for some characters (whether they’re part of the plot or just side quests). But making the story ‘mature’ is giving it an inner and deeper meaning to characters feelings. Not just for the good characters, but the bad guys aswell. Give the plot the twists, unexpected and dramatic events (think about “The Odyssey”) that make you think “Man… This ain’t for kids!”. Or think about The Dark Knight trilogy: yeah, it’s Batman; yeah, MILLIONS of kids love Batman… But those movies are not for kids. You get my point?

      3. literally are these the worst nintendo fanboys you have seen ever?? if not fanboys of any kind general. there is a few people that are normal here but its just so outnumbered half of these people need to get there head checked for being deeply overly attached to a product and need meds for being psychopaths. there is no talking sense into them or if you have an opinion, or most likely saying fact on how iwata and reggie suck, or that ninteno needs to stop making shitty gimmicks and just create new and exiting games within the game and not just add a touchscreen and say “ohhh new game when its literally identical now from the last ones. its like they should of bought atlus ands ome of thq or bought more games with all that money but they keep on repeating the same bullshit and if you say any of it, its like you dont get an opinion because the nintensheep are such babies and cry while damage controlling

  10. 1) No guides. Just have NPC and story gives us clues

    2) I prefer cartoon over realism but we have had more cartoon ones recently so i can´t demand another one

    3) Voice acting for all but Link

    4) Big and interesting overworld, not just a pointless huge field ala TP

    5) Towns for all, humans and other races (why did the land races in SS not have towns or villages?)

    6) No ghost towns (how did the creators of TP think that their version of Kakariko was even acceptable after Clock town and Windfall island)

    7) No locked doors like in TP

    8) Be able to talk with all NPC (What´s wrong with you TP)

    9) Keep Links agility from SS

    10) Upgradable weapons

    11) Lot´s of side quests and mini games

    12) No invisible barriers, have you able to visit at least 50% of the map from the go.

    Probably something else

      1. Do you know me? I don´t think i have made more than 5-10 comments on this site so far.

        Why do you call me Nintendo fagboy? I like Mario yes and i think the Gamepad is nice.
        However i know that Wii U does not stand a chance this generation, i just hope it survives. Wii U and Wii are fine for people like me. I am 32 years old so i can´t spend to much time playing videogames so getting 2-3 games a year works fine for me.
        If i wanted my game console to become the 1# source for entertainment in my home then i would probably by PS4 and i would have been so pissed at my Wii and it´s lack of good games.

        Zelda is not perfect, every 3D Zelda has had some serious shortcomings after MM. WW had to many small islands, only 5-6 dungeons, padding and was too easy. TP was Oot remake, too slow, too empty, kinda boring. SS had no towns, horrible sky overworld, filler quests (repeated bosses, entering the same dungeon twice and that swimming after notes thing) and the awful Fi.

        Just make sure that you can´t go and explore the whole world before you enter the first dungeon but also don´t have invisible barriers (TP) or a guide that stops you (WW). Just have some places that you can´t reach until you get an certain item or finish some quest.

      1. Or… Maybe the other way! What about if Link dies in the last battle? It’s a cliché, I know, but it’s something that has never happened to any of the games in the whole saga: the hero, facing an enemy who’s beyond his power, gets severely injured in the last battle, a wound so deep and big that kills him. But yet, he manages to save the realm and brings the evil guy down aswell.

  12. Add Zelda, and I mean Zelda, not sheik, as a Character that you can switch to. Dungeons would have to be designed with this mechanic of switching. Link gets items to use, Zelda leans Magic. So imagine Zelda learns a Tornado Spell, Link gets Bombs. with these in combination you use Zelda to lay down a Tornado, and throw a bomb into it to lift it up.

    When you are not in direct control of the other character. you can use touch screen to give them orders.

    1. Better yet. it is a Trine situation. Link and Zelda are trapped in an item and only one of them can come out at a time. so you switch to Zelda, Link is then in the item.

      For her combat ability. She would handle the same. a Magic shield for defense, fire slashes for melee.

  18. We should be able to switch between Link and Zelda! and Zelda should be able to turn into Sheik. They should also add playable Gorons and Zoras.

    An interesting way to do this would have Link and Zelda go on a quest together, but then they find dolls of a Goron and Zora in two different dungeons and when you activate the dolls they magically turn into larger versions of themselves which you can control like a puppet to complete tasks that you wouldn’t be able to in a specific area or dungeon. It is like a different take on the Majora’s Mask transformations, just without the masks.

    I would also like to see some cameos AT LEAST of Navi, Midna, etc. I would love it if we could venture back into the Twilight Realm and see it how it should look when it is all happy.

    I really hope the bosses in the next game are insane. The creatures should be larger than life and require more than just the dungeon’s “signature weapon” to take them down.

  20. I think that the next game should be two players, and maybe a new story that hasn’t been used in the other games like link turning into dark link at a certain point in the game,traveling into the future, combining all the games in one or just the popular ones. Having a new selection of characters available to play as after certain quests or for the plot, maybe even having the players create themselves in the game to accompany link in the story line or as extra at the end. Maybe not letting the game end completely by having new missions.

  21. One thing I think all of you Zelda “fans” need to do is not be so pretentious. Just because you enjoyed one game more than another doesn’t make that one game you liked the most the best, nor does it make other games bad or inferior in the series. What makes Zelda so great is that we get ignorant haters who think that each game is the same thing and bash it for such when they haven’t even played most of the games (or any) because this genre isn’t their type, but in reality all of the games are very distinct from each other. Whether it be the console, the perspective, the controls, the art style, the story, the characters, the setting, and probably more than I can think of, each game stands out on its own. There are people here saying some really really pretentious and ignorant shit. To say something like “Ocarina of Time hasn’t aged well” is pretty ridiculous in my opinion. I can go play OoT any time and still enjoy it as much as the first time I played it (even if the boss fights are child’s play after the first playthrough) and I will enjoy the experience more than most games that come out today. It’s not because of my bias towards Zelda or because of any nostalgia either. The 3DS remake with Master Quest proved that the game will have more longevity than any game from it’s console aside from some of the multiplayer games. And you know what? OoT is not my favorite Zelda. My favorite is Skyward Sword, and I will stand by that opinion till I die. I also think Majora’s Mask is absolutely purely, dark, twisted genius. I don’t understand why you would even waste time bashing Skyward Sword. ALL OF THE FOLLOWING IN MY OPINION: It is arguably (actually in my opinion definitely) the best motion control oriented game to date, the boss fights other than the accursed three times you need to fight the imprisoned are ALL top notch and some of the best in the series. Girahim and Demise are better boss fights than any other final bosses in the series in my opinion, Girahim is second only to Skull Kid as the primary antagonist in terms of character presentation, to date this is the only Zelda title in which Zelda feels like a real person and you care about saving her, the dungeons are great, I personally thought the music in the game was second only to Oot and MM. I did not have any issues with the sidequests. People complaining that it’s only fetch quests are wrong because A) there are some things to do like refight the bosses via the thunder dragon that are clearly not fetch quests B) most side quests in the Zelda franchise are indeed fetch quests, so to pinpoint one game as having it as a fault to me is just nonsense talk. Skyward Sword is my favorite game of all time. Does that mean it has to be yours? No. I don’t care if you like it or not. Just bashing it because it wasn’t your favorite is pointless. One of my least favorite Zeldas is Wind Waker. It boils down to there was a lot of hype from other people I know that said that game was hands down the best Zelda, and when I went to play it I just didn’t have the fun I thought I would have. Do I appreciate the game though? Of course. It was just shitty to learn that most of these people had never played another Zelda title and then when Twilight Princess came out they all hated it for it not being Wind Waker which again is stupid. The Legend of Zelda doesn’t have a set timeline in my opinion. Each game to me is just someone else’s interpretation of the legend, and to me that’s what makes the series so cool. Maybe some guy on an island somewhere is telling people the story of Wind Waker. But someone in the woods somewhere learned the story as OoT, so that’s how they think the legend went. This is why there will never be a game that is most commonly agreed as the best game other than OoT. OoT gave us the Zelda story at it’s most basic and easy to understand level. Do I have high expectations for the next title? Yes. And I’m sure they won’t disappoint. I’m glad it’s not up to some of you fans, and that it’s in hands of those that have been making these great games for over two decades.

  24. I feel like having Zelda as the actual hero, would be pretty cool! That’s something what I would call unique! StrongER puzzles, StrongER enemies, and to be able to use a lot of the items, like the game of Okami, it uses all the powers it has, because to be honest, it bothers me having an item from the dungeon, done using it, never using it again. I’d like for you guys to remove that problem. That’s all I have to say.

Don’t get me wrong I loved Windwaker, but no one asked for it, and no one will have asked for what ever they are cooking up now. And it will be cheap and simplistic and avoid all the things that deny every Zelda title from being true Triple A titles.

  28. The events of the recent weeks has got me thinking, even if they made the best Zelda game yet, it wouldn’t matter. We’re talking the best Mario game since the original Galaxy, and it didn’t make a noticeable dent.

    Gaming culture has become irrevocably fucked up, and no amount of quality will fix it. All one can hope for is for trends to change, and for people to wake up from their sheepdom.
