    wat

    Edit: Like a friend of mine just said, "It's like that time in Ocarina of Time when Link committed a genocide... wait".

    This is fine by me honestly, way more interesting than any regular Zelda.

    Before folks shit on this, just imagine the possible list of playable characters.

    This is probably what pushes me over the edge to buy a WiiU. So amazing that this exists.

    This seems crazy.

    But I actually think seeing classic zelda weapons, like the bombs and the fire rod, used in a new way against hordes of enemies is really cool. I'll definitely be keeping my eyes on this game, they've got my interest.

    Just remembered the end of skyward sword, there where an awful lot of moblins to kill there. Almost Dynasty Warriors like, maybe not the craziest idea after all.

    @recspec: Exactly. That is the most interesting part to me as well. Aside from the big 3 (Link, Ganon, Zelda) there isn't very many humanoid characters in the Legend of Zelda series so it will be interesting which playable characters end up in the game. I would imagine you would play as a Goron and a Zora at the very least.

    Wait... does that make this the first 3rd party Zelda game since the CD-i games? If so, Tecmo must have given Nintendo one hell of a pitch for this game.

    Does The Minish Cap count? Is this new game going to be published by Nintendo or Tecmo Koei?

    So many questions. Questions that make me want to go play Minish Cap again.

    I'm just glad Link is left handed again. This is exactly the kind of thing Nintendo needs: Branching out franchises to unorthodox genres.

    This might be the weirdest Nintendo crossover yet. I kinda love the idea, depending on how the character list works out.

    I'm not hating, this could be fun (as a DW fan) but seriously, of all the possible team ups for a third party Zelda game they go Tecmo for a DW game. That's just fucking bizarre.

    More or less bizarre than crossing Pokemon and Nobunaga's Ambition?

    Probably less I guess? Both are crazy.

    Pokemon was just asking for a new Snap or some kind of 3D console entry. And Zelda there are a ton of ways you could go but DW had never occurred to me. It's great they are branching out working with other people these are just odd choices.

    Anyways though, could be fun. I think the bit with the big boss in there shows some cool gameplay potential. Just so odd.

    This looks amazing. I wish Nintendo let other developers toy with their IPs more frequently, because the results seem to be, at least so far, very interesting.

    But since it's also a thing, and things on the Internet must be loathed by people, I loathe this thing. I can't believe Nintendo is doing something like this. Nintendo is doooooooomed. Dooooooooomed, I say.

    Could be neat, even though it seems wrong for a Zelda game to be missing its usual polish (that trailer was kind of a mess!)

    Even that tweet had a typo in it!!!!
