I was reading an article (note this article may be false, it is about an alleged interview with Eiji Anouma who made what is considered the best Zelda games namely Ocarina, Majora, Wind Waker, and Twlight Princess *Well he wasn't the lead maker with Ocarina*) apparently they may be making Zelda a little more like (it's horrible) Final Fantasy, mixing almost modern day stuff with medieval time weapons along with the magic. However, I won't know that this rumor is absolutely true until next week... Six days to be precise... watery_eyes watery_eyes watery_eyes

Actually (I forgot to say this earlier) some of the stuff they said did seem pretty cool, but the majority of it I was apposed too.

According to the interview you probably are right, they said this one will be massive (much larger than TP,) but it will be even darker as well, you won't play as Link. You'll be a Link wannabe somebody who has heard about Link and is obsessed with what he does so much so that when the kingdom is in danger they take upon themselves to do the Link thing. That part is all right, also the next part is cool too, they will be explaining the flooding in Wind Waker, like halfway through the game Hyrule will start to flood and keep flooding until it's covered in water (meaning you can't wander aimlessly around Hyrule field.) Your goal is to fight Ganondorf (yeah he is still the villain) while trying to save people from the flood. So far the concept is cool until they introduce the steam engine, Link can now travel by train as well as horse (yeah he still has a horse.) We may see a musket like thing that shoots gun-powder deku nuts instead of the normal bow and arrows now.

No, it's just some dude that wants to be Link, now like I said this is all just hearsay, none of this is confirmed. If it is true it will be confirmed Tuesday or a few days after that during E3. It's probably a fake since some of this stuff is very FF like.

I am glad to say that this particular rumor is fake.

I agree with the save Zelda part, but not the FF part. FF is considered one of the greatest rpgs, but as far as gameplay goes only III and XII are any good, the turn base in FF most of the time sucks, the only reason III was any good because you could change your character classes, therefore making the game much more customizable, XII was good because you played in real time, the battles were similar to KH (which is very fun.) Also XII had a much better story than the rest. Zelda has a good story most of the time, and the game play is terrific (at least in the 3-D ones, and many of the 2-D ones.) It does need something new, but not FF new, maybe if they made Zelda like fable it would be a lot better at least if they made it like Fable in some aspects while retaining a E-T rating Zelda is after supposed to be a kids game.

@ Mavrik I respect your opinion, but Zelda is a kids game the highest rating they get is T and that was only in Twilight Princess. Now a change of story would be nice, but the reason Zelda is famous is because of it's story (and to some extent game play, hence why Ocarina of Time was a big hit.) Now if they made it a save the world instead of princess it would be cool, now if they gave you a option to be the antagonist in one file and the protagonist on the other that would be awesome even if it was still a princess situation it would be cool.

@ GBPA That is a good idea, but it make more sense like this:

Link's items: sword, claw shot, boomerang, grappling hook, deku nuts, iron boots (as well as the blue tunic,) and bow. Link's abilities: swim, dive, stealth (like in TWW,) jump (like in the 2-D games just without an item, with the Wiimote/Nunchuck controller there are enough buttons for it to be possible,) karate (Link is good enough that he doesn't always need a sword,) tiger-riding (I'd like to see Link ride a tiger into battle,) and various types of magic.

Deku Scrub's items: deku nuts, and deku stick. Deku Scrub's abilities: float (on water,) stealth, weak defense (everything hurts these guys more,) and super jump (a higher jump than Link's because it is lighter.)

Hylian's (another elf like Link to help fight) items: sword, hammer, bow, deku stick, and bombs. Hylian's abilities: jump, swim, karate, and horse-riding (Link is the only one who gets a tiger though.)

Goron's items: bombs, super bombs, and hammer. Goron's abilities: roll (can do a super jump while rolling,) super karate (extra powerful punches,) sink (Goron's sink in water so it would be just like falling in a hole, you get hurt and revert to the place where you entered that area/room,) and improved defense (against all attacks including magic attacks also reduced damage from fire and ice.)

Zora's items: spear (like the ones in TP,) and water bombs. Zora's abilities: super swim (can swim faster,) super dive (can dive faster,) weak karate, and jump.

Ok, it sounds a lot like Majora's mask, just with a few additions and such, also it'd have your idea where you can switch only at certain areas, really since you'd have to change so much it would be at entrances to areas or some place in every area can have something that can switch your party member. This would make it a lot more complicated that TMM.

Add the idea where you could be either the protagonist party, or the antagonist party. Put a bunch of side-quests, but still have a main story to it and you have a solid Zelda game.
