    The art style is quirky, but I think it works. I personally hate A Link Between Worlds and how it looked. Just something about it that screamed "lazy"... I don't know, might have been tempered expectations of a worthy successor to LttP (it wasn't).

    LoL When I saw the title of the thread, even before watching the video, I knew there'd be a load of people complaining about the art style. I mean, it doesn't matter *what* style they went with, there'd always be people who don't like it. Nintendo just can't win.

    Anyway I'm pretty excited for this. I wonder how much it will cost? I hope they get straight to work on a Link to the Past remake as soon as this one is out.

    Yes because coming into a thread and moaning that something isn't how you'd like it is just a terrible . Thing to do, isn't it? At least they only complained the once, though. Can you imagine how awful it would be if someone decided to state their preference over and over again in the same thread? *shudder*

    I actually like the art style. However, I'm worried about the amount of content and the price. The gameboy game wasn't exactly packed with content, which is fine for an old game, but if they sell it at full price then I won't be able to justify buying it without multiple times the amount of content added. So far, it's looking like a 1:1 remake, and I won't buy that for anything more than $20.

    This is my favorite Zelda so definitely buying. The art style isn't nearly as bad as people are making it either.

    I can't wait .

    I agree on the eyes. Even all the enemies's eyes have scleras

    I bitched about it too. It's not my favorite zelda, probably not even in my top 5, but once I played it I realized the art style worked really well.

    I was expecting a full 3d version of Links Awakening. Oh well, I still have my DX cart here.

    Somehow I could never appreciate the artstyle or music of the original (which is why I also have yet to play through Oracle of Ages/Seasons). Even the 2 NES titles look and sound better in my opinion.

    This looks ok.

    One of my favorite games ruined with that gawd awful art style.. and what's worse is IF they ever decide to carry on and remake Oracale of Ages/Seasons they're going to have to stick with that gawd awful art style :(
    I could get along with the new style, it's Link in particular that looks jarring to me the rest doesn't look too bad.
    Whats the chances of some clever people model swapping the Link between worlds Link with this one :P

    It's nice to have it in full color and the motion sequences looked good (especially conveyor belts in the dungeon), but I agree. Horrible letdown.

    I didn't expect fire emblem to be so boring, either.

    Ever notice how Link is holding the Hylian shield instead of the Fighter's shield? I think some retconning is happening.

    artstyle is a perfect fit. makes it feel like the original. conveys the simplistic through the chibi look and shallow depth of field. by blurring the very near and very far, you get a toy-like look. love it.

    Nintendo are so lazy with their “remakes”. The GBC version looks better. They literally remade the game tile by tile, how is this a good idea?
