    What do you guys think will be the name of the next Zelda?  Will the game be drastically changed like Miyamoto said?  Please start the speculation...

    I don't know how drastically the game can change without straying from its roots. Zelda has always been a dungeon to dungeon adventure ; I can't see it changing all that much.

    I hope it doesn't change that much, I hope Nintendo doesn't try to reach out to the casual audience too much with Zelda.

    hopefully they will do something cool with their technology, and by that I mean the motion plus. Without totally alienating the loyal Zelda fans, also wind waker graphics please

    I could not agree more with the above poster. Ditch the graphic style of Twilight Princess and use the art style of games like windwaker. The ground textures in TP almost made my eyes bleed.

    I actually kind of hope that they try to keep the graphic style more realistic rather than The Windwaker's graphics.  Even though either would be fine, as long as we get a new Zelda title.

    We will get a new Zelda. The Zelda team are working on it. I just hope they dont make it for the casual players.

    I liked the art style of Twilight Princess so I wish they keep that style. Just make the gameplay awesome and ill be happy!

    All I want to see from the next zelda game is sord play with the wii motion plus. It really would be the coolest thing to do proper sord fighting instead of the vague resemblanceof your actions in twilight princess.

    I think it would be awesome if they used the Link from the original Legend of Zelda and The Adventure of Link.  Make him in his mid-20s or something.  Maybe I'm biased because I'm pushing 30, but I like TP because it had the older, more mature Link and the game had a darker tone to it.  Let's have some tragedies!  Show that Link has a soul and just a automaton out to mindlessly right the wrong.  Have someone close to him (Zelda maybe?) get killed right in front of him and make him hellbent on revenge!  Does that stray from the roots of LoZ?  Yes, but a breath of fresh air wouldn't hurt :)

    I want a more realistic style, like Twilight Princess had. Not that i didn't enjoy WW, but i liked TP much more. Also make the combat gorier, more visceral.

    Purely Wind Waker would be bad, maybe a sort of cel-shaded but not cartoony look.
    Also, adult Link please. There are few things I hate more than having to save the world as a 12-year old.

    Difficult to say I think Nintendo need to find new ways in keeping Zelda fresh. It showed a bit in Twilight Princess we have been here before because it did feel to similar to Ocarina Of Time.

    I agree, that would really mess the game up. If they were to do that, then Nintendo would have to be on crack. Nintendo cant change a game thats been meant for a hardcore gamer for almost 20 years.

    That's not really a bad thing, but I see what you're saying.  I wouldn't mind Zelda feeling a little more fresh, but not too much that it is straying too far but I'll let Nintendo handle it, they know what they're doing.

    Thats what I ment you are right we don't want it to be completely fresh that it doesn't feel like a Zelda game it needs add new elements but keep all the best things from certain Zelda games to still make it feel like a Zelda game. Like Super Mario Galaxy it was fresh but it still felt like a Mario game and not something completely different.

    I wouldn't mind another Zelda game with the Wind Waker art style. As long as they don't stray too far from the path, it should turn out to be a good game. Hopefully it will be as big (if not bigger) than Twilight Princess.

    To be honest, I really enjoyed the style of Windwaker. The cell shading was really refreshing, and it would be really great if they could bring that back.

    I really hope that he doesn't talk, because people have got to know him as the Silent Hero. If he was given a voice, people might hate it, or people might love it. It's kinda throwing it all up in the air.

    Here is my Idea:
    I want a full blown war against the forces of darkness, I mean why does link have to fight al of the monsters on his own, why cant there be a huge battle with the hyrule army Vs Ganons goons In the middle of hyrule feild and you have to get through it to reach death mountin. Why cant troops patrol the hyrule feild and get into fights while you ride along, why cant there be a new race that help you out. Let Link show emotion when someone dies.
    end of Idea

    As lon as they stay true to the series, nothing can go wrong8)

    Also for those who said you didn't want Zelda to be a casual game: suck it up, Wind Waker is a casual game and is a whole lot better than TP (Combat-wise, WW link is a wilder combatant that wolf boy Link) I don't like cell shading and I would prefer a Realistic wiew on things, but since Ninty is going so called "Casual" on us, Cell shaded and crazycombat style dosen't sound so bad:D

    I don't understand what you mean by that. Judging by your avatar, you've played Ocarina of time. Twilight Princess was the most similar zelda game  to Ocarina of Time. Windwaker was far from realistic, but it was very fun nonetheless. What, do you want Link walking around the streets of a modern Hyrule City, exploring apartments? I don't understand what you mean by realistic?

    It's probably in space, just like Mario Galaxy.

    Wind Waker was in the sea, because Mario Sunshine was in the sea.

    I got one thing to say on this. It has NOTHING to do with difficulty.

    Why did Nintendo make the wiimote? Because it was a simple controller that when applied correctly, anyone could pick it up, start playing, and have fun within a minute. People these days seem to mistake accessible as a term for difficulty. Even if the game's difficulty is easy, just having the controller use EVERY single button or some crap like that, new gamers might be thrown off in confusion. By accessible, Miyamoto means he wants the games to have as little to no learning curve at all, because THAT'S what throws off some people. So, take a look at Phantom Hourglass. It is one of those games that pretty much requires the use of the touch screen, and very little buttons. That game has a simple control scheme, but it still has the feel of Zelda. In other words, it's whats called a bridge game (mario galaxy and mario kart wii fall into the same category).

    Plus, a change is a bit necessary. The 3D games after OoT haven't really brought anything groundbreaking thus far.

    If anyone would like to see my theory on how the next Zelda game could work, while being "reinovated", check my blog. I have atleast two blog posts mentioning it.

    I really don`t know how they could change it. I guess that`s one of the reasons I`m not a game producer.
    But I am hoping for something with the cell-shaded look of The Wind Waker and some heavy character interaction like Majora`s Mask.

    Well they need to keep the game adult art style like twilight princess, and they need to make it more maturely themed this is an adventure game it needs to have a lil more danger, and possible death, and love and hate and such in it.
    The whole love scenario between midna and link was a great contrast.
