In case you missed it, Zelda: Skyward Sword is being directed by one of my favorites

His name: Hidemaro Fujibayashi. Other games he’s directed: The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons, The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords and… wait for it… The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (aka my favorite 2D Zelda ever)!

Eiji Aonuma, the go-to console director of late, is great. But I’m anxious to see where Fujibayashi takes the series, even if the graphics aren’t inspiring.

    You don’t like the graphical change?
    Personally I feel that the impresionic look is right for Zelda, but they might have taken those red pig enemies a bit to far…

    Oracle of Ages/Seasons is my favorite Zelda, Minish Cap 2nd. Woot to this guy.

    Sageofshadow, I love the style of the graphics, but the lighting and textures just seem very weak in this game. I’m sure that is what Blake means. It looks very dated.

    Josh, I understand now, and I’d have to agree to a point.

    it looks dated cause its on dated hardware however i was mostly impressed with what i saw of the graphics considering the now major limitations of the wii

    This makes me happy. That is all.

    The graphics aren’t inspiring? That’s news to me. I think the graphics are the most attractive Zelda graphics to date, and I am patient enough to wait and see the final product before I start bashing the unpolished aspects.
