The announcement. I was going to say 2D Zelda was dead, but afterw atching GameSpot's trailer, this is honestly only a little more 3D than New Super Mario Bros. is. Can't wait.

Sounds interesting, and looks good too. Definately interested in this installment of the series.

If I'm not mistaken, sea travelling returns. I'm not crazy about doing that again, but it looks nice. This marks the first 3D Zelda title on a handheld, hurrah.

I'm excited to see that you can make notes on the map.  That is awesome.

Looks promising. I thought for sure they would have announced another Four Swords esque game, so I was really quite surprised.

Looks like good implementation of the stylus, what with drawing a path for the boomerang to follow and mapping your way across the sea charts. Hotness.

Iíve lost interest in the Zelda series since Ocarina of Time. Itís not that the latest installments had become that bad, but the series have lost something essential in comparison with the first episodes.

I am so getting this one. This will be my third Zelda title for a handheld. I still admire the cartoony look I thought it died after Wind Waker.

I somewhat agree. I thought Wind Waker recaptured some of the Zelda charm, but ever since Miyamoto handed the creative control of the series over to Eiji Aonuma I have had a harder time feeling that Zelda feeling. Especially with the Capcom games. However the series remains tremendously fun so I keep on playing.

I do have high hopes for Phantom Hourglass and Twilight Princess. I don't think I'll be let down by any means, but I'm hoping the Zelda charm will make a humongous come back.

It looks like a spin-off of the Wind Waker.  By that I mean it looks like it's relatively the same world just as Majora's Mask was about the same world as OoT.  Very interesting though.

I would have to agree that Zelda seems to be losing it's touch a little bit.  I always remembered Zelda games to be bringing new challenges and such with each installment.  Since OoT, it seems like they're just re-using everything.  The games seem more like the exact same Zelda game with a slightly different story, and even there it doesn't differentiate much!

I agree with that as well. I've been replaying the first games of the series recently and I can't help but wonder: "Why can't every Zelda game be like these?". Heck, even Zelda II, often seen as the black sheep, has a certain charm. It may have gotten away from the puzzle formula, but at least THEY TRIED SOMETHING NEW with each instalment (I'm looking at YOU Capcom and your Oracle games...).

Even though I have had fun with it, I truly believe that Ocarina of Time is seriously overrated. It's just that it wasn't what I wanted a Zelda 64 to be...And even though they fixed the controls and made the combats actually FUN in Wind Waker, sailing became so irritating that I was wondering if I wasn't playing a fishing game made by Nintendo and starring Link...

Minish Cap really surprised me. The storyline is nothing special (evil wizard threatens to destroy Hyrule, the princess is in danger, blablabla), but it definitely has that A Link to the Past feel (my favorite game of all time), which is a good thing. I wish it was longer.

I don't care about cel-shading or "realistic" visuals. As long as Nintendo can make a game with countless dungeons and less boring fetch quests (the beginning of Ocarina of Time, the triforce hunt in WW, having to do a series of pointless sub-quests before entering virtually every dungeons in the Oracle games, etc...), then I'm in. However, the series seriously needs a breath of fresh air (perhaps Zelda Revolution will bring that...).
