    Link's new outfit kind of reminds me of the one he wore in Windwaker. It was in the beginning of Windwaker before you got the hero of time outfit.

    Hey, I've always loved Nintendo but doesn't the guy in the last slide look like he's losing his shirt?.....im sorry... but I do know it was twilight princess that made zelda a blockbuster. hope for the best

    ...are you retarded? Zelda has been a hit since it debuted, and if anything can be considered to have made it a "blockbuster" as you put it, it was Ocarina of Time.

    Actually, Aunoma teased: "No one explicitly said that that was Link." Oh boy...
  • The_Tingler - June 11, 2014 4:46 a.m.

    Yep, I was going to point that out too. The current guess is that could be Sheik, and I was sure it was a woman before "Link" pulled out the bow. However, someone pointed out the wrist-guards... they're EXACTLY the same pattern as Ganondorf's. Could this be a young version of him?! Or his son or something? That would be amazing!

    Freaking amazing

    Yeah I'm not so sure the wii u can pull that off. Looks great though.

    If the GC could pull off WW's vast world through coding tricks, I can easily believe Zelda U can do similar. If they can make Just Cause 2 work on a 360, anything's possible. (Plus, it's been in development for three years now...)

    You realize that grand theft auto 3 came out on ps2

    That vista... you can see for MILES! So gorgeous! This is showing us that developers just do not try on the console and with what Nintendo can pull off it is a shame other companies don't take note and take advantage of what the gamepad and hard ware can produce. Can not wait.

    Looks awesome, but there's simply no way the Wii U can handle something like that first shot of the open world. At least not without some SERIOUS pop-in. I'm talking like in Oblivion where entire towers would pop up out of thin air as you moved forward. Still, if you can play it without waggle/touch gimmicks, then I will buy a Wii U just to play it. Also, no annoying sidekick this time out, please.

    They have to implement some form of the Wii U, people are constantly bitching to them about it. Lets hope they do it in a way where it makes the Gamepad useful, but no in the way where its forced throughout the entire game.
  • shawksta - June 10, 2014 5:19 p.m.

    Also, if Console Skyrim can do open world, then im pretty sure they'll think of something on the Wii U, Nintendo knows how to use their console to the fullest
  • RushLight - June 11, 2014 10:26 a.m.

    How could the Wii U not handle that open world? We've got the 360 running games like Skryim, GTA V, or Just Cause 2 with no problem at all, and the Wii U is more powerful than the last gen consoles, even if its not as powerful as the X1 or PS4. It's perfectly plausible that the Wii U could handle what we saw in the trailer.
  • db1331 - June 11, 2014 10:37 a.m.

    "We've got the 360 running games like Skryim...with no problem at all" I can see that you and I have vastly different definitions of the word "Problem", so I'm just not going to get into a debate with you on this topic.
  • RushLight - June 11, 2014 10:39 a.m.

    I don't have Skyrim on 360 so I can't really speak firsthand of how it actually performs on the 360, although besides from the trademark Elder Scrolls game bugs, I haven't heard of it having any actual performance issues on the 360. Besides, my points about Just Cause 2 and GTA V still stand.
  • db1331 - June 11, 2014 11:23 a.m.

    Things like not even running in 720p, but a lower resolution upscaled to 720p, a framerate capped at 30fps (which dips into the 20s), and load times around 30 seconds would be considered problems for many people, including myself. Without even looking, I'd bet Just Cause 2 and GTA V suffer from many if not all of those issues as well. The Wii U can't even run many cross-platform titles as well as the PS3 and 360 (Mass Effect 3, Arkham City). I am telling you, the Wii U is not capable of running that kind of open world at that level of detail, with all that moving grass. That was just a demo. Watch the trailer again, and pay attention to the part at the end where the giant monster attacks link. He exits stage right on his horse, and the camera BARELY pans to show him leave. All that was was a cut scene. It might have been in engine, but it's not like there was a whole living world to the left, right, and behind the camera. It was proof of nothing. That would be like watching that reveal on your Wii and saying, "Hey, my Wii was able to run the game just fine. It wasn't choppy at all. They should release it for the Wii as well."
  • RushLight - June 11, 2014 11:50 a.m.

    GTA V has no loading screens (except when starting up, of course), I'd like to point out, and I've played the Just Cause 2 demo on the 360, and it runs pretty dang snappy (and before you say it was just a demo, keep in mind, it is rendering that entire large section of the game, NPCs, buildings, everything). Furthermore there's no point comparing the performance of ports. They were most likely hastily done, and by people who don't understand the architecture as well as Nintendo does. Look at what Nintendo was able to achieve with Mario Galaxy on the Wii, they know very well how to utilize their hardware. Finally, your last point about watching the trailer on the Wii holds no water at all, your entire point there is a straw man fallacy.
  • db1331 - June 11, 2014 11:57 a.m.

    You can literally drive faster than the game can render the buildings in GTA V, which results in the exact kind of pop-in I said an open world game of that visual quality on the Wii U would result in. I won't argue on this anymore though. If the game comes out, and looks even REMOTELY like that shot of Link on horseback in an open fields, with all the swaying grass, then I'll buy you lunch.
  • Skorzpatch - June 13, 2014 8:26 a.m.

    Try going to IGN and watching the console comparisons between different platforms for Assassin's Creed 4. The Wii U certainly dominates the PS3 and XBox 360 on those games. The reason it doesn't run many cross platform titles well is due to lazy developers. Simple as that.
