Windwaker

How many of you fellow Nintendo/zelda, would like too see the next zelda game be a windwaker styled game with a larger ocean but with better and more accesible teleporting.

There was already a thread about this

I would, i like the game better cell shaded

Wind waker's art style was great so yeah, I'd be down for that

I loved the cell shading in Windwaker, and would be really excited if they could do it again. Shame not enough people like it that way though.

Wind waker was a great game, I wouldn't mind it.

 I loved Windwaker's art style, so I'd be up for that. I wouldn't want it to be the same ocean setting though. Something new would be cool.

i think that windwaker as a story is over. they can bring back the style, but it wouldnt be a direct windwaker sequel, i dont htink. But yea, the graphics fit nicely with their friendly casual approach i guess.

I dunno about that. Don't get me wrong, the art style is great, but how much can you use it before it gets old? Methinks it's already too old to be applied to another game.

Even if it WERE applied to the next Zelda title, what would the plot consist of? Part of Zelda's magic is a lack of a solid timeline. Having a sequel to a sequel is pushing it, big time.

I would much rather see something new. Cell shading might be okay but it would have to be a new style.

Nah, I like the OoT/MM style more, tbh.

Windwaker's style wasn't bad. The cell shading was cool, but as far as the art direction, I'm a bit more of a fan of a realistic style. Perhaps cell shading with more realistic proportions/models might work well?

I don't think many people want a larger ocean considering all I've heard from people are complaints about the ocean being too big and hard to get around with. Even if there was a better teleporting system, I don't think it would matter, since the ocean in WW was really empty. If they put in some surprises on islands other than heart pieces, etc. then I'd be really happy. I hated to go onto an island I found after sailing for a long time only to find  heart piece or nothing at all.

I would really love to see a game with the Wind Waker style and the big ocean with some of the features of Majora`s Mask. The developers tried to do that on Windfall Island and it was pretty cool. But it would be even more awesome if timed events occured all over the ocean!

my only condition is adult link and good gameplay
other than  that, do as you will.

I'm with Atejas ;)

I want kid Link again. Not crappy Windwaker Link either, that doesn't qualify in my opinion.

#19 Posted by ArmTheNuke (59 posts) -

I'd still like to see them continue with the "realistic" link.  But the Windwaker style was cool too.

But no matter what style they go with I would just like a mature Zelda game, with adult Link and adult Zelda (similar to the Twilight Princess game).

I want the next Zelda game to be realistic.

#22 Posted by LuckyWanderDude (929 posts) -

I would as long as they fixed some of the problems associated with a low-populated open-world.

#23 Posted by MiamiRedHawks (914 posts) -

I liked the cell shaded style of windwaker a lot. I hated the sailing aspect though...

#24 Posted by Ontain (7 posts) -

WW is my favorite zelda. sailing was just so peaceful.

#25 Posted by Kowalski (262 posts) -

Wind Waker had an awesome art style and it is my favorite Zelda games overall (I'm at about 65% of Twilight). I would love a WW 2, unfortunately Phantom Hourglass i probably already their answer for that, and quite a lackluster one at that...

#26 Posted by lilarchie232 (728 posts) -

I just want something totally unexpected.

#27 Posted by chazer127 (213 posts) -

I want a TP and WW cross-breed style, it sounds cool.

#28 Posted by RyShe (110 posts) -

At this point in my life the only thing that could get me to play another Zelda would be if Link wasn't in it, and you didn't get a boomarang, or a slingshot, and get rid of the eight dungeon thing. other then that WW was good.
