      @Kay Nintendo are one of the if not the best game "developers" in the world. The craft of game development does involve graphics and such. But, moreso, it involves novel ideas. Nintendo just has such a creative team working for them. With beautiful ideas and the appropriate amount of polish. As someone who works in the industry its beautiful to see.

    I loved the little confirmation that Zonai are more involved in this game at 3:34 with the Zonai Charge item. The Fuse ability is definitely interesting, albeit I do find it strange.

  • Come Fast To Get Into My Body

    The fusing is absolutely incredible and it’s going to make everything feel even more hands on and interesting. And the fact that you can go straight from the sky islands to the surface with no loading screen is absolutely insane to me. So excited!!!

      @Maroxad this is just a common mechanic from "open world survival craft" genre. The whole building a raft is not new either. Kerbal players are prolly laughing at this video.
      Anyway, its nice to see this mechanic in a rpg, rather than on full-blown survival game with no plot. But yea.. this is not that revolutionary

      ​@Maroxad I also want to specify the emergent gameplay point. When you turn logs into planks in MC, it just happens. You get an exact replica of that thing. Here you can make it any way you want. Not all boats, cars or flying machines will be equal.

    • Maroxad
      Maroxad 3 hours ago +12

      @Centrioless Similar in theory perhaps, but could be massively different in application. Crafting we see in most video games is more akin to a shopping system with different currencies. This looks to emphasize emergent gameplay over another grind.

    It's clear that the vehicle building mechanic was inspired by people using balloons in the first game to make things fly, and I love that they ran with it. I can't wait to see all the crazy things people build!
    Also, the weapon fusing is wacky and very cool!

  • Adrian Parisi
    Adrian Parisi 9 hours ago +23

    mind blown. genuinely fills me with so much happiness that all the time they took was to create such amazing and creative new innovations in the game! that fuse ability looks bloody amazing, especially incorporating the flying objects people were already making in botw! looks like a potential masterpiece we've got on our hands if all goes as well as the first game; mixed with the familiarity of that score when link was riding the horse, it's like coming back home after all this time to gradually see hyrule is more breathtaking than ever.

  • DJ 7000
    DJ 7000 4 hours ago +18

    Eiji Aonuma gave a hint about using the Ascend ability to escape from a cage. I think this is a huge hint that getting captured by enemies or traps will play a big role in this game and maybe even hints at scenarios in which you work your way out of dungeons or dungeon type settings.

    I am so happy that we all have been patient about this game. Look at the fruits of their labor and look what our patience and support, alongside their hard work has created. That fusion mechanism is amazing! I am SO grateful and excited that Aonuma and the team created Fuse so as to make combat more accessible for individuals who are not so confident or capable in the fighting aspect! I take a very strategic approach to killing enemies and I always have in all the Zelda games. Seeing that long range stick/farmers pitchfork and keese eye/arrow fuse made me ecstatic! I truly cannot wait (but can/will) for May 12!!! I cannot wait for all the forums, threads, memes, and our communities to critique, explore, show, and speak about everything!

      @w finally a genuine reply, I agree 100% both will be good. Saying a 2d game like hollow knight (SS) will have less content is a matter of perception but, you may have me on this point definitely. An open world tht may be very null and void after awhile, granted these new abilities are gonna be a game changer for exploration and game breaking glitches maybe? Finally, hasn’t team cherry been working on silksong for 5-6 years, with only 3 people? HK was a under budget rushed project. I hope they’re both fantastic games and I’m gonna eat my words on negatives I’ve proclaimed but, we will see. I know with TLOZ releasing 1st potentially. silksongs gonna have a banger of game to follow I’m sure 2023 gonna be a exciting yr 4 sure.

      you think we’ll still have the old abilities? Magnesis and Stasis are sorta represented, but what about Cryonis? and surely we’ll have bombs?

    This Demo was the perfect amount of a reveal. It didn’t give too much away, but just gave us enough to be excited for what is to come. 🥰 I’m so stoked for its release!!! I can not wait!!! 😄 I think it’ll be well worth the wait. And also, that new Switch being released in its honor… 😱😱 SIGN ME UP!!! 😍😍

    Love the new fusion mechanic!! That adds a lot of variety and replay value, plus the ability to craft vehicles looks like fun! I hadn’t been so exited to play a new game in a long while. Good job Nintendo! (I wish you had connected it to the previous game if you had it, though, as if it was a giant DLC pack.)

    Wow. They somehow managed to address the two biggest concerns people had with the first game (climbing being boring and durability being eh) without removing them or trivializing the mechanic. Sincerely impressive.

      @jano Gabor Open world isn't a dungeon. I don't want the only puzzles to be in the open world just for a piece of loot.
      They can make traditional dungeons/temples, but no one is sure if they've added them to this game. There's so much more room for creativity in this game for new puzzles and elements to work.

      @jano Gabor I don't mind climbing either. It's not that bad if you focus on stamina for your initial round of upgrades. Once you have two full wheels, you can use the leap option to make it much faster on smaller inclines. As long as there's some slight ledges on bigger inclines where you can stop and replenish for a second, climbing goes by pretty fast.

      @NCR Veteran Ranger They obviously can and they did. They are building the world as if it was a dungeon, the sandbox elements, the creative problem solving it's all because of that.

    The fuse is the weirdest and most random thing I have seen ever... And I love it
    But I wanna see how they gonna balance it
    Also enemies doing it too is gonna end up with some really funny stuff like the one that just flings link off the island is so funny
    I'm actually very excited about the game now it's truly gonna feel like a proper adventure going through it like experimenting along the entire way to the end with different stuff and enemies surprising you with annoying weapons... I like it

    It looks incredible and I’m so excited to make the weirdest mechanisms imaginable!

    Gorgeous open world with tons of details and now have more mechanics it will be the bomb for this year. But just in my opinion, I have played the previous game and the gameplay is kinda easy for me when we have too much option for good weapon, consumables for regen and no death punishment and even the mob is not really hard there are ways to cheese them. I hope this game will make it more difficult is some ways.

    It seems like this Zelda has a lot in common with Skyward Sword. The floating islands, the cage he landed on, the little robot he fought all remind me a lot of that game. The new stuff is insanely cool though. Recall makes so much sense for the time control that usually exists in Zelda games.

    I hope certain items can be fused together to make standard weapons. Like bokoblin bone on a stick to make a bokoblin weapon. Like if you find the recipe you could create any other weapon and if what you fuse isn't part of a recipe it slaps them together like the examples shown in the video

    That fuse ability is even crazier than I originally imagined. We are going to be seeing videos years after the game comes out of people finding the best fuse combination or combining things that are across the map.

    Ommmgggggggg! I'm loving that fusing ability!!! That looks exciting with a lot of possibilities! I just hope that Hyrule on the ground isn't pretty much exactly the same i wonder how they are going to change up the temples and the people and all that stuff... It looks like the main map itself will be relatively the same.. you can see the split mountains on the way to kakariko village shop that's still the same. Just hope they change it enough for that not to matter. Either way though it looks to be a GREAT game so far.. (edit) well, he does say it's an unfamiliar Hyrule at the end there so maybe it is changed up enough to be the same... But different.. i can't freaking wait!!!

    Now I just hope the English version won’t edit out Links diary so it’s not in first person anymore. The Japanese version of BOTW has all the descriptions as if Link is writing a journal but the English one makes it 2nd person, so it’s less personal. I really hope we can get a better insight to links personality and thoughts this time in the English version of the game 🥰😊
