Zelda Wii U to have Wind Waker type graphics?
Remember that really stunning Zelda demo that was showcased at E3? How could anyone forget the beautiful demonstration. Not long after that Feld0 reported that Miyamoto had confirmed that a Zelda game would be coming to the Wii U.
But those thinking that the finished game will be akin to that gorgeous demo at E3 might want to think again as Zelda producer, Eiji Aonuma has put across the idea that it might not look like that at all.
This won’t come as too much of a surprise as Nintendo did repeatedly stress that the video demonstrations that they showed were not representative of real games.
“You probably remember that when we introduced the GameCube, we showed a somewhat realistic Zelda demo, and what we actually created was the cel-shaded Wind Waker,”" said Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma in a recent interview. “So when we show a graphic demo, people think, ‘Oh, this is what the next Zelda will look like,’ but that’s not necessarily the case.”
He also went on to say that the demo shown was just an experiment to see what Zelda would look like in HD and to test out the Wii U graphics. This suggests that the final Zelda game could be something quite different.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind cel-shaded, Wind Waker type graphics but I can’t help wanting the art style and visuals we saw at E3.
