    Looking good in terms of visuals, and I like the basic ideas shown.

    In other words: EXCITEMENT!

    The trailer actually excites me. It looks like it'll be fun, definitely loving Link and all the ALttP sound effects and references. I'm a little wary of the "turn into a drawing" ability. Ah well, Paper Zelda then.

    Conider it's set in "the same world", I'm going to say a Prequel to Sequel to AlttP. So anytime before the oracles and after ocarina.

    The graphics are looking a bit weird, but fuck it, 2D Zelda ain't dead yet, that's enough reason to celebrate :P Hopefully we'll get some more substantial information other than "look those mole-thingies you hit with a hammer are back, and you can turn into a drawing" soon, seeing how the game will be coming by the end of the year. I can't help but think this game will be a bit of a Four Swords-esque experiment, rather than a "regular" Zelda game (I mean, a dungeon with 13 floors being shown from the start seems a bit weird), though.

    On the timeline... I think post-LA would make the most sense, but anywhere after ALttP would work, if it's the same Link.

    I agree the graphics look a bit plain. I am enjoying the AlttP setting, though. The use for the hammer and the Paper Link are both novel and look like they could have interesting puzzles.

    Link doesn't have pink hair!

    Love the graphics. A little too iOS gamey... But that's not necessarily all bad. Lookin' forward to it.

    Also what's with the stamina bar? I guess that's sort of in line with Skyward Sword, but I wonder how it will work out in this game.

    Is it stamina? Not magic?

    Seems to go down for everything and regenerate fairly quickly as well.

    It looks... interesting. I'm not too fond of the gimmick, it looks silly and out of place. But I'll have to wait until I see how the game contextualises it to judge it further. I hope they put more detail into the graphics though. This retro look is dumb and boring.

    A bit weird, but looking good. Glad to have top down Zelda back.

    :(

    But I love the ALttP style red sky and clouds.

    Definitely not impressed by the visuals. I've seen low budget indie games look better (like Rochard which even pulls this look off better).

    As for the gameplay, looks pretty standard.

    The overworld might be the same. Hopefully we'll get to explore more though.

    Nice work there. Totally featuring that overworld comparison quick.

    My prediction is that we'll see most of ALttP's map, and go beyond that to some new regions.
