Omg floating islands?! AHHHH I love sky settings! Pleasepleaseplease deliver in terms of exploration. Skyward Sword’s bland sky world was so disappointing, but maybe this will be what SS should have been? I’m not going to delude myself into thinking there will ever be a Skies of Arcadia 2, but I’ve always been hoping for something to scratch that sort of itch in terms of floating islands + sense of adventure. Cautiously hyped.
I wish the trailer was longer but oh well. Link’s look is interesting. His clothing kind of reminds me of a Team Ico protagonist (specifically the boy from The Last Guardian).
I'm still kind of holding out hope for Zelda being playable in some capacity, but I know deep down that it's a long shot. Her being totally sidelined would be disappointing, but it wouldn't surprise me at all.
I don't know what some people seem to have against the weapon durability in BotW. I was super skeptical of the concept at first, but it worked for the game. Some actual issues, IMO, were the enemy and weapon variety (yeah, there were lots of weapons, but essentially like three? or so movesets).
Remembered to pre-order SSHD the other day. Kind of a shame I'm pretty sure i'm never going to be able to get my hands on those joy cons or even one of the loftwing amiibo to add to my collection that now takes up almost an entire wall in my room. I still have the golden Zelda wii mote that came with the special edition for the Wii though.
I'm honestly not sure how I'm going to fare with the motion controls again, or just try and play with the modified controller input. I remember punching a shelf that I had above my chair a lot when I played it originally.
At this point too, I'm almost actually hoping for another collection with the 3D Zelda games packaged together, kind of like the collection that they put out for the Game Cube back then.
