The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - new screens


Amazing style and art direction. Taking the best thing about Wind Waker's graphics to a whole new level. Too bad it's not coming out until next year, even though I'm not really going to be worried about with all these other awesome games to play until that time. Oh yeah and I just might have to check out that 3DS thing too (it looks amazing).

I don't like what I'm seeing here. I expected a realistic style Zelda or wind waker style graphics not this. Mixing the two in my opinion is just lazy, I would have liked to have seen a completely new style of art direction like red steel 2.

Honestly I dont like the new look of Zelda if they decided to use cell-shading they shoud stay with WW graphics.
I wanted realistic graphics like in MHTri not Super Mario Galaxy with Link.

Predator, I respect your opinion when you say you'd prefer a different art style but to say it's lazy is ludicrous. Miyamoto himself said if this game had Twilight Princess graphics it would be finished.

So claim you don't like the art style all you want but don't call it lazy, it's anything but. I played this game myself and I can claim it looks great. The colors are very bright, maybe too bright at times, but it still looks really good.

This is me:

u need extreme hardware to get visuals like that out the door full stop its vibrant visuals like this that use more power than realistic visuals with greys and dark colours ect so its even better that they chose these CGI/CELL SHADED type visuals ect.

You don't need "extreme hardware" to get graphics like that, just a lot of imagination and work. I've seen countless games running on the Unreal Engine 3 technology that are just bland to a tee. Graphics engines are just tools for game developers to create the best product using whatever features it has.
