    Looks nice, but the voiceover in the trailer is fucking awful.

    i don't understand how 2018 devs can't make sprites as good looking as the ones from a fucking SNES game. why do these graphics look worse than LTTP???????

    Are you on crack? LttP is one of my favourite games ever, but it looks like ass. Half the terrain is literally just a monotone. It uses a shitton of tiled graphics and they aren't even very good ones. At least compare it to a nice looking game like Secret of Mana or Chrono Trigger.

    Since we're talking about aweigh here, I wouldn't be surprised if he really was on crack. Like, literally.

    Too many hours playing Elminage have fried his brain perhaps.

    Which "Zelda" is this most "like?

    The video presented in the trailer reminds me most of Super Nintendo games and Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past.

    Has the game been designed with 4:3 resolution in mind?

    Native controller support?


    In regards to the voice-over in the trailer:

    Looks kewl. Art direction looks very on point. Voiceover narration is indeed awful. Main problems are that:
    1) The voiceover is super breathy and sounds like the VA has aspirations of someday working in the magical wonderland industry that was 90s pornography
    2) Text is the most poorly written and generic/banal fantasy gobbledygook one can imagine. "The ancients doomed this land to its watery fate, but you... you make your own fate!" Gag me with a wooden spoon. Protip: If you have no sense of diction, rhythm, or prose, avoid using the same word (especially an overused one like "fate") in successive sentences.
    3) The above facepalms are coupled to Gameboy-era Mario sound-effects. Super jarring, discombobulating, and (I assume?) unintentionally hilarious.

    That said, gameplay >all. Best of luck and hope it turns out to not be a massive shitshow.

    Nobody plays Zelda for the story.
