    Let's not give Nintendo any ideas for future gimmicks. I'd take a mature story driven Zelda over a "futuristic" Zelda any day.

    Mechas.

    But you need a different Triforce in order to power each Mecha, and when you have all 3 triforce pieces you can make the mechas combine to make a super mecha, before flying into space to battle with RoboGanon

    Trains don't introduce adventure. If anything, the absolute opposite is true: a train runs on a track in forward or reverse.

    My criticism of their current direction is that they've deprived the series of its legacy, and the reason why gamers kept returning to Hyrule for all those years. Miyamoto has stated that his intention in creating the original was to bring the sort of exploration to video games that he enjoyed as a kid in the outdoors. That is what this series always delivered and why it was a landmark, genre defining title.

    But there was no exploration in Phantom Hourglass, it was moving from one island to another where you find a singular goal at a singular location and then leave with no expectation to ever return. The ship didn't introduce freedom as a mode of transportation, if anything it was confining. And as a video game mechanic, it was boring.

    The dichotomy between his past work on console installments and these current handhelds is astounding, and it's insulting that he wants to bullshit us to make up the difference. Yet I'm confident he will continue to interpret the game's success as vindication of his design choices, because any Zelda game will be a commercial success so long as it adheres to basic elements familiar to the series with the labyrinths and inventory.

    Maybe they think of completing a timeline-like thing. How further in the time-line how more modern the zelda's get, even if they say there is no timeline, i still think they kinda push it along this way.
    For me I hope Zelda will stay it's good old exploration-by-horse or feet game. No modern technology, before we know link is in the 19th century and he's flying a plane...
