It reminds me a lot of Twilight Princess (probably because of all the twilight), so I'm happy. Mostly I'm just happy to see Zelda with a massive world (finally) and normal controls (again). Now if it can have a lot of fun things to do, a spot of non-linearity, and do all that without forcing me to grind RPG-style except for the occasional Rupee hunt that I'd do anyways, this might just be the console Zelda I've been waiting for.

I've recently thought of another thing to add to my Zelda 2015 Wish List:

I want Zelda to do something princess-y. I mean, we've seen her get captured, play a harp, and fight, but this time I'd like her to do something different, like... I dunno... rule a kingdom?

Princesses don't rule. Maybe they get prepared and have some authority in a "My daddy will be so mad if you don't do what I say" sort of way, but they aren't directly involved in politics outside of "who is she going to marry?" sort of things until they gets married off...last I checked, anyways. They didn't exactly cover Hyrulian politics in History class. e_e

Isn't there a "game" where you "play" as the princess and basically just wait around and cry in a dungeon until the hero comes and rescues you?  I'm pretty sure that was a real thing and not something I made up just now.

maybe i'm being cynical but the world map doesnt look any bigger to me than OoT so i dont get what the fuss is all about. maybe it's because i didnt play skyward sword due to it's motion controls?




admitedly older world maps were kinda scrunched into a corner

Did you see the footage? The world is huge and they only showed a small portion of it...

Yeah, it's amazingly large. That and maps in older Zelda games aren't necessarily to scale though they did a good job with them all things considered.

Wind Waker also had a really large game world, even if it was mostly water.

The only Zelda map that really comes close to the scale of the one shown during the TLAs was this one.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
