I'm currently playing Ocarina of Time 3D hoping to beat it for the 48th time in a row. And yes I do agree with CM30 Ocarina of Time is open ended for there was no order in to which you had to complete the temples. I beat the water temple before I beat the fire temple when I first started playing it. It took me 7 months to beat the game the first time because I didn't know how to beat the bosses and got stuck for 4 months on Barinade until my brother came in and helped me beat him :/ But now I know what to do. Anyways Games don't need deep stories, open endings are good, and et cetera et cetera.

wat will happen is probably you complete 3 dungeons (any order), piece of story, another 3, more story. Or somethin like that

@MrGawain But couldn't the story suffer because of the non linearacy? I mean it's kind of hard to form a narrative when you don't know what order people are doing stuff in. Sure it worked for the original Zelda, but that was back before games needed deep stories.

Zelda games usually have 10-20 set points in the narrative that join the dots between the levels, you don't normally have much narrative during the dungeons. It could be a case that if you had to chose between 3 dungeons, after each dungeon you could see a set piece with the villain saying you won't get the other 2 items which doesn't realy go into much detail about what you've done before, yada yada yada...

I don't think Zelda has ever had a very deep story beyond the traditional clichés, and Link doesn't really grow as a character in the way other protagonists do. It's not like he has moments of doubt or weakness, or loses power- He generally just drives forward to his goal. This is like most of Nintendo's output, because they very cleverly don't make anything too detailed so it's easy to translate across the globe- it's also the reason we don't hear voice acting above a few ums and ahs and grunts.

As long as Nintendo produce great gameplay, limited narrative does not matter one iota.

Isn't it obvious that Falco Lombardi is actually a parrot?

"Why would having "only" 10 dungeons make it short?"

Here I go again: The game plays quick! And with that I mean: The movement is quick, the attacking is quick! In retrospective, everything in Alttp took longer, because of the slippery controls! Unless Nintendo makes the dungeons long and hard, I could see myself finishing this game very quickly!

What makes you think they won't be, though? They have less limitations and more time to work on it than the DS entries, which were the only entries in the series that I've seen have short dungeons. Even Minish Cap had some fairly long dungeons as I recall. And no, A Link to the Past wasn't longer because of the controls. Some of those dungeons were seriously massive. Again, I have the strategy guides for a bunch of Zelda games, and at least 3 of those dungeons were huge, spanning quite a few pages. If they're trying to emulate that game, I highly doubt they'll skimp at all on the dungeon front.

This game is going to be based on the Link to the Past Map. Most gamers these days can finish that game in 5-10 hours.

note: Hilda hired the main villain. If you watch carefully, u see the villain kidnap picture zelda. At the end, Hildas talking to the painting, saying she wants the Link to save Lorule, and letting Hyrule corrupt like her kingdom did. Zelda being kidnapped is only to convince to follow

I had no clue who that witch was at first when I posted the artwork of her earlier. I guess as a new villain she'll have some sort of connection to Ganon.

What if she's the evil queen of an ancient race of barely dressed male-only warriors where a single female is born every X years and she must become their queen.
They may or may not live in a desert or a similar setting and she may or may not have been raised by two evil mages.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Now that I think about it...

Do you think this game may explain why Hyrule went from being a happy green lively place in A Link to the Past to being the barren wasteland full of death that it is in the NES games? (besides the fact that the place is like that because of the limitations of the console blah blah blah)

I mean, the timeline is called "the decline/downfall" and it goes from healthy hyrule to deserted hyrule without explanation.

I remember asking a similar question a while ago. Apparently NES Zelda takes place in just a section of Hyrule abandoned because of Ganon's minions attacking. Or something like that.

Regardless, even as someone that will defend the timeline's existence and relevance, they will never accurately explain overworld differences between games.

Thats...very interesting... I thought certain parts of Hyrule went through a dark time because Twilight Princess Link was too busy being a farmboy in his village. LOL. I can see TP Link now... "Man, I just wanna ride Epona and push some goats into a barn. I don't wanna deal with this evil stuff." XD Seriously though... The intro to TP is amazing. drools

This game looks amazing!!!
The new trailer, especially. Wow those puzzles look fun. Wow, the story is intriguing. For a game that began as a sequel to ALTTP (It still is, but now it has more), it sure has stepped it up.
