    I smell timeline continuity...
    From what I could tell, though, Ganon and his minions were absent, so it likely takes place in the Adult timeline.

    I don't know why I don't like the whole "Link is a villager who for some reason needs an elf's outfit to save the world" thing.


    But the game looks great.

    Really!? Where?

    EDIT: Actually, it makes sense. This is likely the origin story.

    miyamoto once said skyward sword goes before ocarina of time, and explains how the master sword was created

    I've read that in Zelda Universe.
    Since the game explains the origins of the master sword, it has to take place before ocarina
    that weird blue girl (somehow) turns into the master sword

    read this

    "Being that we knew right from the get-go that Skyward Sword was about the origin of the Master Sword, this seemed obvious, but to abate any possible timeline confusion, Aonuma made it clear that this game absolutely takes place before Ocarina of Time. . . which brings us to. . ."


    anyway... it's not clear if this game is THE FIRST one... since the master sword doen't appear in The Minish Cap

    What's interesting is that there is a theory that the Picori/Four Sword is the Master Sword. If that were the case, it would make the early timeline
    Minish Cap -> Four Sword/Adventures -> Skyward Sword -> Ocarina of Time.

    that makes sense to me
    besides... Elzo in Minish Cap explains why Link uses his green cap

    Gotta' admit that really makes me want to play. Showed off some of the story and mechanics (though nothing with the HUD or menus, which don't excite people often anyways).

    Well-designed trailer.

    Wasn't there a HUD in the earlier trailers?

    Those were what put me off; Intrusive and they took up the whole screen.

    Yup, it was a fucking wii remote taking up half of the screen.

    I hope they at least make it more discrete.

    I don't play many zelda games but thank god this is on wii instead of the newer system there coming out with. I hope there is a few more good games coming out before they quit making them.

    Is it just me, or is Zelda really ugly in this game ?

    And yes, clearly that girl in the trailer is Zelda.
