Apparently a Nintendo booth rep said you could use dog based amiibo but was probably just mistaken and meant Wolf Link or something.

But man if I could use one of the Animal Crossing dogs to venture alongside Link just like the Wolf Link amiibo can I'd be all for it.

The Duck Hunt one would also work in this hypothetical scenario, but I don't know how effective he'd actually be.

Anyway I just checked and since there was only one Zelda segment on Day 2 of the Treehouse stream, it was actually pretty easy to pinpoint the Talus fight.

Playing Majora's Mask for the first time and I don't think there's much in videogames as satisfying as starting a cycle and re-beating the Snowfall Temple boss (which owns), getting your sword sharpened, clearing off the goron race entrance, winning it, buying another bomb to open up the ranch and then see whatever it is i'll have to do to get Epona all before noon. Videogames truly are fantasy if I can get so much poo poo done in the morning.

Try taking the gold dust from winning the Goron Races to the sword-sharpener before The Third Day.

I was worried that they were biting off more than they could chew with such a huge map, but apparently this is the biggest team Nintendo's ever put together for one game, and they're recruiting 100 employees from Monolith Soft to help them out, so I think they can fill the world with plenty of interesting stuff.

just crunched the numbers, and if you were even just going off of the assumption that everyone was only getting paid the industry average (US $83,060), that's still $83,060 * 300 people * 5 years, or $124,590,000, and that's not even including marketing, which I'd assume would probably double that or at least add significantly to it.

Ubi's open-world games routinely and easily exceed that number, even if you ignore the eighty thousand global subsidiaries they credit for every game, and they put out multiple large-scale games a year, so they're pretty much running at full production all of the time, unlike a project like Zelda or other longer-burn projects like GTA (which had something like 1000 people working on it by the end) which spend more time in pre-production.

300 peoople is nothing to sneeze at but it's more impressive that they've achieved something of such scope and quality with a comparatively small team, I think.

Sigh... that was another thing that annoyed me in Skyward Sword. It felt like it put a serious limitation on the degree to which you could explore places (not that there was much to explore). Maybe being able to upgrade stamina will find a way around that.

You effectively have infinite stamina, because you can eat stamina restoring food while climbing. We've seen people do it on streams. So as long as you prepare, anything it's physically possible to climb to the top of if you had infinite stamina you can. I imagine a lot of people will play the game as crazy [Naked] Link, running around hunting the poo poo out of key ingredients to craft massive buff potions, then using those buff potions to climb poo poo and swim naked in ice lakes. 5 weeks in they'll be the ones that go "This game has dungeons?!".

I don't see anyone taking about this, but there was some HUD in one of the videos that looked like a horseshoe/cartoon magnet, and I think it looked identical to that U-shaped controller patent Nintendo filed.

Possible NX design?

I bet the tablet thing Link uses has some resemblance to the NX as well.

That is my though also, the Tablet is going to look a lot like the NX controller.

Ubisoft also streamlines the poo poo out of their production with standardized assets, so by the time it reaches their veritable army of coders it's probably down to "insert Building Type A here, Tree Type C here". Breath of the Wild on the other hand looks to have a whole lot of unique content.

I think the tablet was probably just supposed to resemble the Wii U gamepad. There are a lot of little elements that feel like they were designed with gamepad-specific functionality in mind but were then pared back, presumably for the sake of the NX version.

One thing I did see pointed out (maybe in this thread but gently caress research) is that the quick-select menus looks as if they're designed to work with clickable scroll-wheel shoulder buttons a la this recent Nintendo patent: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2015/0261321.html

Zelda has a stamina meter. Possible Skyward Sword HD release?

Also I just saw a guy on some Gamespot discussion video say how he used the magnet rune to build a see-saw out of a chest and a metal plank thing, then stand on one end and drop a boulder on the other end to make Link go flying. Apparently it worked. I need to find footage of someone attempting this now.
