    I heard that way back, somewhere that there weren't going to be anymore zelda games. now, i don't really care about the portables (ex. ph) but i really want there to be other 3-d platformers.

    also, if any of you guys can remeber, how long after wind waker was realesed did they announce tp? if it's one year then we should expect to hear something, if not, well maybe wait until 2008.

    zelda games such as oot, mm, ww and tp are my favorite games because there's so much to do, so many sidequests (especially mm), fighting, puzzle, lasts for so long and has the best story that a video game can have.

    if any of you know anything, please post it here. :wink:

    I really doubt they stop making Zelda games because it's very popular and sell very well, so why would they stop making something that gives them money.

    As for i know there aren't any zelda games for a near future, except PH. I don't think we'll have any news untile next year or maybe not haha i don't know. Just be patient :)

    i really hope the new one won't take as long since they can just use the models the had in tp except make it a bit more realistic (maybe 60fps)

    yeah they could do that, we could get a new zelda faster than the TP anyways last time they delayed it so it would come out with the Wii. Hopefully it won't take to long :D i want it now haha :lol:

    I REALLY want another Zelda game like Twilight Princess. To me, that game was just epic. It got me into Zelda....better than OoT in my opinion (maybe not as revolutionary, but a better game...graphics aside).

    I think it was these 3 things that got me into it:

    1. The Look
    Twilight Princess had a very mature look to it. Very awesome artwork! I loved how mature Link looked.

    2. The Personality of the Characters
    They put so much personality into the characters! Especially Midna. At times I laughed at her, felt bad for her, was angry at her...she was a typical woman (had me all over the place with mood swings). Even the side characters! Telma, the Shaman, Colin. Talia. All of them, it made the story great.

    3. The controls
    It was a 100% better experience on the Wii. I could actually control the type of attack Link did, the spin attack was way more accessible than the gamecube version.

    I highly doubt Nintendo would abandon the Zelda franchise anytime soon. However, judging from what I've read, they are gung-ho about experimenting pretty heavily with the format/style of the game. So while we will probably get another Zelda game in 2008 or so, there's a good chance it'll be radically and extremely different than Twilight Princess. Think about how much some of the other Zelda games differ from each other. I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo decided to try "something new".

    Unfortunately, I'd prefer if they didn't. Of all the Zelda game styles, I think Twilight Princess is the best. They need to take that and improve on it, and just come up with a new story and plot. The Wii has plenty of room for improved graphics and the remote usage could be further refined without turning the game style upside-down (again). It hasn't always been for the better.

    every zelda had it's very special thing:

    zelda: ocarina of time
    this was the first game that brought the series to a 3-d prespective and is intuetive with characters and the plot. the way the dramatic scenes from kakariko being set on fire to all the sages sealing ganon away is spectacular. it featured three types of swords, sheilds, tunics and boots which is a good feature to have if you don't always want to look or attack the same.

    zelda: majora's mask
    the main thing about this game was the very neat side-quests. it is very cool how they made this game. whenever i think about this game it's about a side-quest that took you really far into a story (ex. bunny hood girl, the inn, getting the sun mask or watching this very weird man dance in the middle of the night) this one had a time and certain things happened at different times so you'd have to go to different places on schedule.

    zelda: wind waker
    the idea of being able to explore an entire ocean is very cool. i'm still not even sure if i have explored every island yet. this game was a bit puzzling throught some of the later temples and has a decent storyline. a main aspect of zelda is being able to do things that make you forget about saving the princess or beating ganondorf (ex. trying to purchase things at the auction house). this game also introduced some new items.

    zelda: twilight princess
    this zelda by far, has the most dramatic storyline. it improved graphics alot and revived epona after what wind waker brought. midna, a new addition to the series, can make your emotions feel for her, be angry and sometimes wonder if she's evil. the improved feature of being able to fish is wonderful and life-like. switching back to the style that ocarina had, twilight princess made it possible to carry 2 swords and sheilds. in every other zelda game, you'd only be able to carry your newest one. link is also more understood and the evil in this game actually seems like something harmful. also, having to beat two villians at the end is even better, although i wish they were harder. twilight princess takes the longest to beat out of all of the zelda series and is the most mature one up to date.

    I personally would not want to see the Zelda series die. It's my favorite Nintendo franchise, and I LOVED TP and think they can do better on the Wii, so I'd be devastated.

    I know a lot of people who complained about TP, but I personally liked it and saw it as a sort of testing the waters game. It was kind of like Nintendo was testing what they could do with Link on the 'cube.
    So I think if Nintendo takes what was good about TP and builds on it, the next Zelda game will be really stellar.

    Up until Twilight Princess there was a Zelda game every 2 years, with TP coming 4 years after the last.

    A futuristic Zelda is fake, very fake... was an april fools joke from wiitv.com look here

    I think placing all the elements of The legend of Zelda and placing them in a very distant and modern future would be a bad Idea. Would take away the escense of the game, i think. Why have link fighting with lazer guns and riding a motorcycle. It's just wrong or at least that's what i think.

    this is my best estimate after seeing the release dates of each zelda:


    feb 08-may 08= announcement
    2009-2011= release

    I don't really understand how any of you guys can say TP was better than Ocarina of Time. I don't really have a problem with TP it's just that Ocarina of Time really just sums up my teenage years. Ocarina of Time is a time tested classic that just can't be knocked off by some motion controls. When Shiek teaches Link the Serenade of Water I was almost brought to tears :sad:. Midna to me was just a replacement for Navi, who was in my opinion his best sidekick. They are both annoying in their own rites but when I think Link I think of him with his little ball of light with wings floating beside him.

    Meh, I don't think we've seen the end of the Zelda and friends. I mean, Nintendo is going to keep milking that cash cow until the milk stops flowing, so aside from a lengthy await time I can't see this as the end. Zelda is Miyamoto's baby so to speak here.

    If it is the end then maybe you guys can talk Phillips into creating a couple? Not sure if this was JUST for Phillips hardware however they managed to squeeze out an almost unlimited usage license of 5 Nintendo characters (Mario, Luigi, Zelda, Link, and Gannon) and created a series of there own Zelda titles back in the day on there CDi. Worst case scenario Phillips might be able to step up to the plate if Nintendo is bored cashing Zelda checks. :lol:

    When I think of Link beside a fairy I think I need to run over it to re-fill my life meter before everything goes black again. :) Man I love retro gaming.

    This is my same post on the topic below yours :lol:

    Here's an IGN article on the subject, it was written after quizzing Miyamoto:

    E3 2007: Aonuma and Miyamoto on Next Wii Zelda
    Some ideas are being thrown around, but don't expect a sequel anytime soon.
    by Matt Casamassina

    US, July 12, 2007 - The launch of Twilight Princess with the Wii was a first for Nintendo, which has never delivered a Zelda game so early in the life cycle of a new console. So does that mean fans may not be treated to another Zelda project, this time developed exclusively for Wii? Well, at the very least, it looks like it's going to be awhile, Speaking with IGN Wii, Twilight Princess director Eiji Aonuma and Nintendo producer Shigeru Miyamoto collectively indicated that while some ideas are being tossed around for a new Wii Zelda project, nothing is very far along, or set in stone.

    Asked if Twilight Princess would be Wii's last Zelda, Aonuma said, "I can't say, but I guess for now, maybe, yeah [laughs]. Not to say that it's going to be the final game. There's still a lot of potential with the Wii so there's still a possibility that there could be another Zelda for it. We do have some ideas in the works, but I can't say for sure because none of them have been approved and we're still very much in the planning process, so I hope you look forward to whatever comes out."

    While Twilight Princess performed under expectations in Japan, the newly released DS title, Phantom Hourglass, is selling very well, and Nintendo is taking notice of gamers' reactions. "The Phantom Hourglass has been released in Japan and reception has been very, very positive," said Aonuma. "We've actually been able to receive feedback from the users and we'll definitely take all of those comments into consideration when creating the next Zelda, whether it be for Wii or DS."

    Shigeru Miyamoto elaborated on the likelihood of another Wii Zelda. "It's really hard to say because we've never had a Zelda that's appeared so early in the life cycle of the system, so it's definitely possible that there would be another Zelda on Wii," he said. "Of course, the challenge is that typically a Zelda game is something that takes three years to develop, so we'll just have to wait and see."

    Zelda is nintendo's big money maker, next to Mario. I highly doubt they would stop making such WONDERFUL games!

    :worship:ZELDA!!!
