    As much as I like Alttp, I think the art style has not aged well

    I kind of wish they had gone with Minish Cap graphics instead

    I disagree, but I think if you try to rearrange the lttp graphics you lose the magic.

    This. Also, it would look a lot better with ALBW's graphics.

    I think ALttP has aged well. But this raises a good question. I put up a poll about it.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    For the interested, but not that interested:


    Yeah, it's a Solarus engine-Zelda, but I'm okay with that. Personally, I'm interested to see if they made a 1:1....and if it comes out.

    I enjoyed the original LA:DX and the remake of that can't be like this
    shattered dream
    no matter which team gets their work out first.

    I agree this should be Minish Cap styled. Triforce of the gods was ok but minish cap would of been a much better fit. personally im getting sick of all the games made with the graphics from triforce of the gods. but kudos to him trying to do this but nintendo will get this guy taken down

    I still remember the attempt to demake Ocarina of Time with ALttP graphics. Unfortunately that seems to have hit a dead end with either DMCA or the developers realising that the later dungeons require a lot more work than just clicking and dragging tiles to a map.

    Still wish someone would make a Oracle of Seasons/Ages remake or (as a wild dream) get the Ocarina of Time 3D hacked and use THAT as a basis for a ALttP remake.

    why is triforce of the gods praised so much top down versions of the games are too easy and frankly too predictable.

    Nope in fact I loathe triforce of the gods and I feel that has aged badly with time and should have something a little interesting Minish cap has a much better looking sprites and will look overall more pleasing.

    Solarus just isn't that great... Not impressed. Also, I agree. aLttP graphics just don't look right in this instance.

    Wasn't there someone who was once trying to make Link's Awakening with the OoT engine? It seems that's still going on behind curtains (according to the creator's comments on his Patreon). As for the fanmade remake, I don't think the ALttP art style fits or works at all with the setting of LA. Like others have mentioned above, Minish Cap would have been an interesting fit for it.

    I think the tile sets look good, but the character sprites have not aged well

    I prefer OoX/LA Link to aLttP

    LttP is one of my favourite Zelda titles and this looks fantastic. Saddens me to think how quickly Nintendo will C&D this.

    I never liked those graphics. And Link looks like an old hag.

    I smell a CnD letter coming...

    (I never got, why ppl don't finish the thing and THEN release it...)

    I hope however not... that'd be ridiculous.

    still think link to the past isnt the game to use Minish cap would be much fit for this purpose for example, better sprites and the game overall is more appealing to look at.
