Eiji Aonuma is clearly a very talented, motivated developer, qualities necessary when fulfilling the role of series producer for The Legend of Zelda. He also has a brilliantly playful side, as he demonstrated when he performed a cool Cucco dance at E3 2014.
He approached a recent live stream of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes in great spirits, too, dressing up as Link for the occasion. He's only really on camera at the start and end, but there's loads of game footage in between (albeit in Japanese), including some levels from fairly late on in the campaign.
It's worth watching it you have a bit of spare time and interest in the upcoming release. Check it out!
I love Aonuma-San's sense of humor. Watching it right now the game looks great!
If only i knew Japanese so I could know what's going on in the video. Oh well.
This guy is such a legend
Sorry bro, still not buying your "Zelda" game.
I have so much respect for Anouma and his works, but Triforce Heroes just doesn't cut it for me (it's not my cup of tea, but if it's yours, then by all means go ahead and enjoy it). But I do have to admit after that demo, I can say that the music is still fantastic, and that jingle mini-game is so addicting (the one where you hit a ball-like object and you juggle it by slashing your sword, and so long as you juggle it, classic Zelda tunes play).
@OneBagTravel so you're saying this isn't a real Zelda game? Does that mean the other three games in this series are also fake?
I noticed the Japanese version and ither versions have differing "Apologising" icons. The Japanese one looks more traditionally Japanese. It's interesting how they thought of the rest of the world and changed it.
I'm normally quite good at getting all grumpy about stuff, but... I think this game looks really... fun. It feels slightly awkward and exposed not being in the grumbly camp...
As an aside, does anyone know if this game has regional matchmaking (or 'teammaking' or whatevs)? I think I might again be in the minority in hoping it doesn't...
The other guy has no chin.
@Captain_Gonru Isn't this game releasing in the year it's promised?
I have really enjoyed the demo so far and think it's a great addition to the 3DS game library. But why haven't they allowed for a 2P mode? Surely the middle totem could just be the CPU (as far as I can tell you don't do much in the middle anyway)... and the game is trolly as anything. People will just pick you up and there's nothing you can do.
Also, I love Aonuma, but wasn't somebody else the director of this game? Is that the guy in the video? Whoever he is, it would have been nice to see him play too.
@Xenos-Omega Was that an intended pun ? I inexplicably curious.
I suppose Zelda wii u is finished?
@Steel76 Actually, the last time Zelda U was shown was at the VGA in December 2014.
Nothing since though.
@Lady_rosalina It's not. They said they are still busy making it completely glitchless.
@Steel76 It could be releasing on February 20th, but that's unlikely. I suspect it has a late May release, like Splatoon and MK8; which are the two fastest selling Wii U games.
I gotta say, I like this man's sense of style. Haha...
