If you’re like me and can’t seem to come up with a reason that justifies shelling out for the brick-tastic Wii U, now you have one. At Nintendo’s E3 conference this morning we finally got a look at the new Legend of Zelda game set to come out in 2015, and as usual, it looks fucking fantastic. My only bitching point is that the Link in the video looks oddly feminine. Seriously, the last definitively manly Link we had was in Twilight Princess, and that was back in 2006. If you put wigs on the most recent ones they look like chicks. Ugly ones, but girly none the less.
Skip to 3:05 if you don’t want to listen to the interview part.
If you couldn’t be bothered to listen to the interview portion, producer Eiji Aonuma basically says that the new game will be open-world style a-la Skyrim. Remember back during Ocarina of Time how once you got to the edge of the map you just ran into a wall of flat-looking fence trees? Or how in Wind Waker every entrance/exit on each island was set in stone, so despite having an exceptionally open map there was still only one way in and out of each map point? It’s looking to be like that’ll be the Zelda of the past…
…but only time will tell if we’ll have murderous chickens / pigs in this installment.
