I would think there'd be something in every Zelda game for every fan.
It's not like the Sonic series where several games in a row were terrible. Zelda is always consistant in it's quality and the effort put into the games. At least I see it that way. Maybe I'm just some sorta weirdo for enjoying them all.

I don't believe it! Not after every single Zelda fan expressed their undying love for Celda before it even came out!

Toon Link in WindWaker, look great.
it fit the game real well.
But, The toony look doesn't look so great on Adult Link.
I like the darker design they did in Twilight Princess.

But, SkywardSword looks like they put Twilight Princess and WindWaker together, in one game.
So, before we judge this game on how it looks, after all is still a Zelda game.

like it or not, you guys are still gonna buy it anyway :3

Hands down my favorite Link design, aside from the art work in the Link's Awakening and ALTTP Manuals. :p
It's like a Toon link and TP Link hybrid. Not too serious and not too cartoony, it's justtttt right.

Toon Link just doesn't really seem like the real Link to me. I appreciate him for what he brings to the table, but I just name him Fink and pretend he's a completely different character and not Link. :D

My thoughts on Toon Link:

I thought it was a shaky step forward. But Zelda is all about change. Almost each Zelda game manages to be different and bizarre and STILL impresses us all.

I like Zelda being different. Being the same too many times will just bore me.... like most modern FPSes today. Space marines? Really?

I really fell in love with the graphics of Wind Waker the first time i actually played the game. Before that i was like "oh, it's all too kiddy" too. Then to me it all looked so joyful and still touches my emotions deeper than a more realistic style. Toon Link also gets that job done better than most of all these generic teenie RPG characters in my opinion. I've always loved kid characters in all those good adventurous games and movies too. (A Boy and his Blob and The Goonies come to mind.)


I just don't know about Miyamoto's statement that they plan to only use the style for handheld games in the future...
I mean the AR presentation of Toon Link looks really promising. So i'd really love to see a 3D effect game with Wind Waker visuals as soon as possible. The thing is that the camera perspective should not be like in the DS games but more like the "over the shoulder one" found in Wind Waker. To me it gave that game a very epic feeling. Maybe after that one true "sequel" i could live with never ever having Toon Link in another game again. :S

1. Wind Waker was a breath of fresh air... or, fresh water... or salt water, you get the point.
3. Toon Link was made for cell-shading, and just looks weird in that non-cell-shaded pic above.

At first that's what i thought about that picture too. But i really can't decide now because his clothes and hair do look a bit bland in comparison.

But maybe i should just play to game again to see the model back in action. :)

I've always loved Toon Link, but I think that's because I have probably spent the most time playing the cel-shaded adventures. Also, the cel-shaded look stands up and will never go out of date. 10 years from now it is still going to look fantastic, whereas some of the others will show their age.

Definitely not opposed to seeing him again. Regular Link is fantastic as well though, I can't wait to get Zelda for 3ds!

You see, I actually take issue with the very idea of there being a single "real" Link. Each game was its own story, loosely connected to the others and quite possibly starring a completely different young man with a green tunic. All the attempts to unify the series timeline into a coherent tale of a single character break down into absurdity.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

I simply don't know what the "real" Link even is. For me, Toon Link has always been the "real" Link, because he's still the only Link that's ever had an actual personality. He'd starred in some stellar games prior to Wind Waker, sure, but it was that game that defined him as a lovable character with human emotions, rather than just a stoic avatar that allowed me to experience the world of Hyrule. The visual style allowed for a sense of exaggerated expressiveness that let us see exactly what Link was feeling at any given moment. That's why I love Wind Waker.

If anything, I think we can agree that Toon Link does the most crazy stuff of all the Links. That Ganon finisher in Wind Waker? I'm sure I wasn't the only one who was knocked aback by the sheer fierceness of that move....

I'm pretty sure I think I'm funnier than I really am.

Cracks me up every time. The Twilight Princess Link is basically an expressionless avatar.

"walks in"
well being a HUGE zelda fan I thought I'd get my 2 cents in.

Yes of course it comes to no shock that not everybody likes "Toon Link" as stated. (Even at first I was thrown off by the little guy) But I've learned one thing about gaming that I will stick to: Never judge a game by how it looks! (ok except the Zelda CDI games haha)

The reason? For years I listened to my brother about how if it doesn't look "dark and cool and stuff" then the game is going to be dreadful. Not true, the game will have it's other reasons for being terrible (bad gameplay mechanics, broken controls, scary voice acting, ect.) and I must say, I've missed out on my fair share of great titles thanks to that advice... Never again.

Cheers.

I think it's a good idea personally...Legend of Zelda isn't really known for being serious and I am not exactly a fan of the series...but Wind Waker was appealing to me as it was different...and to me at least, played differently.

The Toon Link vs Normal Link thing is too close to the Green Eyes Sonic vs Black Eyes thing...which we should try to avoid with a Nintendo Franchise.

And here we go again. I guess that the fans of Toon Link (the cat-eyed Link, not the Link- eyed cat), would be happy if every Zelda game existent would feature that one and only design. Same goes for strict fans of realistic Link. How about variety? I at least want to see Nintendo try something new and preferably every time. Toon Link has been starring too many Zelda titles already, it's really getting quite boring.
