The lights are on
Hyrule-heads unite! Green tights welcome. The Legend of Zelda is one of gaming's most famous franchises, and the power of the Triforce is collected here.
I just noticed that the same folks who worked on Spirit Tracks, Nintendo EAD Group 3, are making Skyward Sword. I have to say that Spirit Tracks was my least favorite Zelda game (that's not a bad thing). So I got to thinking "Who would I like to develop the next Zelda?"
Retro Studios, the ones behind the Metroid Prime series and the recent Donkey Kong Country Returns, immediately came to mind. I think that they are a fantastic developer and I would love to see their take on Zelda.
So, who would you like to see develop a Zelda game?
arrgh you took my choice....well since retro is taken....how about Bioware? Let's add some depth to the zelda universe.
Well, I'm a purist. My first choice will always be the oot team. Specifically, Miyamoto as senior producer, Aunoma as executive producer, and Yoshiaki Koizumi to write it [I think that would be Nintendo ead team 2].
But if I had to pick anyone else, I want the GTA team.
GTA as in Grand Theft Auto?
I think Bethesda making a Fallout or Oblivion type zelda game would be boss. But nothing can beat Miyamoto Aunoma and Koizumi
I would like to bigger Hyrule with multiple towns throughout it. I could totally see an Oblivion inspired Zelda being epic.
Yes, Grand theft auto. But I'm not asking for Grand theft Zelda, I just think their dev style might be complementary to the zelda games, in gameplay not content though obviously.
I would love for Capcom to make another Zelda.
Zynga! Zeldaville would be a hit!
But on a more serious note, I want spinnoffs! I would love to either see the guys behind age of empires make a zelda RTS, or the makers of dawn of discovery to make a game where you build a colony in hyrule, and watch it grow into a metropollis. But if we were following the more traditional path, why not the god of war team?
I like turtles. And monkeys. And cats.
I think as far as main Zelda titles go if you handed the reins over to any other developer it wouldn't be near as good.
Just get Yoshiaki Koizumi back on board, dude came up with the groundwork for Majora's Mask while daydreaming!
Signatures are dumb.
I think that the best people to make LoZ will always be nintendo, but if I had to choose another developer I would say Retro. Kudos to them for metroid prime and dk country returns.
i really think it should be the original developers which is Nintendo, but i enjoyed Skyward Sword so much! so maybe it doesn't really matter . . . O.o
I really like LoZ how it is, but imagine this: Retro creates a Zelda game with amazing atmosphere like Metroid Prime had, killer gameplay like Donkey Kong Country had, and the epic story Zelda is known for. If your head just exploded from the potential awesomeness, don't worry, that's normal.
