      Nobody is copying Nintendo lmao, these games are very basic.
      Edit: Should clarify, Nintendo games aren’t as innovative and revolutionary as they used to be. This game is going to look and play almost exactly as the first did, it’s a barebones sequel that should’ve been left as a DLC. Nintendo fans get excited over the bare minimum and it’s hilarious.

      I missed the bosses the most. The Skyward Sword bosses are all sooo good and creative, while the BotW bosses are so forgettable. I dont even remember them other than the fact that they all looked the same, black/glowy texture mess

    • 7PlayingWithFire7
      7PlayingWithFire7 Month ago +19

      The sad truth about speedruns is that abilities stop being relevant once they find one or two good tricks that just make them obsolete.

      BALDORF BREAKDOWNS Month ago +10

      ​@7PlayingWithFire7 That's kind of the idea. To make as much of the game obsolete as you can in order to beat it as fast as possible. It isn't a "sad truth" it's just the nature of speedrunning.
      Also, this isn't even inherently true. 100% runs often have to make use of every item/ability.
      Look at Ocarina of Time, nearly every item is important.

    The last game had runes that had very wide applications in the world of the game. Like stasis was for puzzles but it could also be used for combat, etc. I'm excited to see what ridiculous uses we find for all these new tools too.

    • Stinkyremy
      Stinkyremy Month ago +8

      That is actually the strange thing, there has to be more abilities because apart from recall, non of this really sounds directly useful in combat.
      Though I do assume ultrahand will work just like magnesis but on any item so we can chop down a tree and dump it on enemies instead of only using metal grates or bolls.
      I assume there will be some sort of bomb ability other than the weapon show.

    I love the way they don't change the gameplay too much in compare with botw. 6 years ago they created the best handheld open world RPG game and no one have ever close to match it even until 6 years later. Don't change if it's not broken, but enhance it.

      That’s the exact reason why Nintendo is so succesful. They know when it’s time to create something new and when it’s better to keep things as they are. That’s why we still get new traditional style Mario games. Why fix something that isn’t broken?

      Just like every other release. Zelda always makes me feel this way. Oot when I was 8. Twilight princess when I was a teen. And my favorite attp where it began for me. Every launch has me excited and I find myself reading posts in anticipation exactly the same way a did 20 years ago.
      Man Nintendo knows how to do it right. Games my be behind others but the quality is un matched. There is no doubt a main Nintendo release will be a banger. That's why we stay so true to our roots.
      Thank you nintendo

    For me the best part of BotW was just wandering around Hyrule. The movement systems combined with all the ways the game rewarded you for thinking "I wonder what's over there" made it one of (if not the) best games I've ever played for exploration, and it looks like TotK kept all of that and then enhanced it.

    • Stinkyremy
      Stinkyremy Month ago +2

      I agree.
      I am a life long zelda fan so there is that as i would be biased but I have also liked open world games since I was you and have played crap loads.
      This was one of the most thought out open worlds I have ever played.
      All the environmental story telling and points of interest that just peaked my interest to explore, I was exploring the world for over a month in no rush to complete the game.
      Only issue is in retrospective, all there really was to find was a korok or a trash weapon etc.
      TotK my interest in exploring is going to be more about returning to the places I know and seeing what has changed.

    Coming back to this after the final trailer yesterday. I really like fuse and ultrahand as a mechanic. I feel like it's their answer to more tedious and grindy crafting systems in other games. Essentially crafting and making weapons and structures is more on the fly and hands on rather than grinding for materials and sitting in a menu for 30 minutes making what you need. Overall it's really creative and I'm so hyped to try everything I can I'm this game.

  • Daxon Moore

    I'm glad they stuck with the minimal music. A lot of people complained about BotW not having a constant overworld theme, but I think the lack of music really sold the empty post-apocolyptic world, and made the towns feel much more likely because of their music. Since the world is starting to recover, I expect more music, but it sounds like the same small piano cues which I'm completely fine with

    I feel like the recall ability is a game changer. The fact that you can have only certain objects to go back in time instead of the entire game like in Prince Of Persia sands of time. Imagine a game inspired by movies like Tenet where you can move backwards and interact with objects in different time streams. I feel like the recall ability in this game is a step towards that.

    Gold star move. Nintendo saw people janking BOTW with flying machines and levitating boxes and instead of cracking down on their glitchy nonsense, they applied their physics engine to make that kind of creativity a main gameplay mechanic. Absolutely stellar stuff.

      I love it when companies roll with stuff like that. Rather than seeing it as an insult they build off of it. Feels like they enjoy playing it and the community. Like Valorant making jokes when a player portrait glitched and got stretched, they didn’t patch it they memed with it. Just makes it feel like the devs actually are part of the community and not some ambiguous people typing code.

      Wow, so genius bro. Nintendo literally found a way to make fanboys fanboy even more - that "don't complain about there not being much to do, because if you do, the fanboys will come at you with the "you have a bad imagination bro" excuse in return, and we commend them for it!" was a classy way to end the video. Just like Cyberpunk 2077, only a few of us saw the cracks before the game's release. Seems it's the exact same now, but let me guess, I'm not allowed to be skeptical, I just need to... use my imagination?

    They saw all the "flying vehicles" people were managing to make by glitching guardians or the physics mechanics and just said "hey wait a minute, that's a good idea!" They 100% leaned in to how people were actually playing the game and it looks like they have given us mechanics that will play into that. Well done!

    With the Ascend ability, imagine a completely sealed secret cavern: You’re in a cave, you want to go to the mountaintop, so you use Ascend. But instead of popping up at the top, you pop up in a secret sealed cavern that you didn’t know was above you the whole time.
    Imagine a dungeon or quest with puzzles that gives you clues to where these secret caverns are located.

    Nintendo saw that people were flying around by using multiple objects together, so they decided to embrace the idea and add the Fuse ability. Absolutely incredible. The sheer amount of crazy inventions we'll see from that ability is going to be nuts.

    • Kurokoro
      Kurokoro 2 months ago +243

      Actually they had this ideas before cause a lot of what you see in TotK has been taken from the unused concepts from the development of BoTW, they knew what players would do with Links abilities and the physics of the game and decided to make it part of the mechanics for this sequel which is amazing.

    • nankinka
      nankinka 2 months ago +160

      ​@Kurokoro after all, the devs also play games and do funky stuff like everyone else! It's just a matter of if it's doable in x period of time, and launching these features in BotW wouldnt be achievable

    • Daniel Morris
      Daniel Morris 2 months ago +251

      @Kurokoro There are interviews where Aonuma and co. recall watching people do crazy ridiculous things with Magnesis and such (like the flying double-minecar they had to literally patch out) and just having their minds blown. Sure some of these concepts were pre-BotW, but don't try and tell me that the players' own ingenuity wasn't the spark that became the flames.

    • Kurokoro
      Kurokoro 2 months ago +33

      @Daniel Morris Of course the players exploited this mechanics in awesome ways and the developers where surprised how they used them but the basic concepts for a lot of this was already there, I mean imagine when the sequel comes out and players do the same again, obviously they will impress the developers even more. Just like you said they gave us the fire and we used it in many ways unthinkable.

      @LEGOMaster25 did you even play botw? The lore reason is an ancient civilization that made all the literal robots was taken over by Ganon. They literally dug robots out of a mountain and activated them. Link was chosen to use that technology alongside magic to stop the evil. At this point he's just had more time to learn that technology.

    One thing that struck me with the first game was just how unbelievably creative the fans were. Between electric flying minecarts and sneaking on enemy's heads to jump, people were able to come up with a super incredible range of ideas that I never would've thought of. I'm so glad this game seems to be catering to and encouraging that out of the box thinking.

      You need a boring mechanic in a game.. It will help you later on in it..

    I can't imagine how difficult something like the fuse ability would be to program, considering how many options the game gives the player. It's impressive even from a purely technical standpoint, they've clearly done a lot of work on their engine. I was impressed by the very stable-looking performance as well, looked like a pretty fluid 30 fps

      Right? There are many opportunities the player can do for crafting materials by fusing any type of objects around them. I find that fusion mechanic is really well improved for the franchise. Not really a fan of Zelda but I'm only getting this game because of the open world formula and the weapon selection. That's why honestly.
