between the gorgeous visuals, immersive environments, atmospheric sound design, jumping, clothing and weapon equips, etc I'm really happy with this direction.

My point was more that saying, "It's more like the NES game than any modern title," isn't a point in its favor.

I agree, I'm just saying that it's isn't a point against it either. It depends how they execute it.

Anyway yeah, I'm really liking the art style. It's very smooth and detailed without getting into "hey we spent our computing power on rendering each pebble individually" territory. It's a good balance of realism and stylization.

[up]Heh, I didn't notice that. That's a nice touch.

When he picked up the Nightshade, it mentioned how using it in cooking improves your stealth, so I'm going to assume cooking different foods will provide different buffs and benefits beyond just restoring health.

I love survival games and have grown tired of the Zelda formula, so pretty much everything about this looks fantastic.

The Shiekah I-Pad can be used as a telescope. Interesting.

That's definitely curious. They've been trying to do a stealth mechanic since Ocarina, but usually in isolated zones which left it feeling like an Unexpected Genre Change. Going full-steam with it as a standard gameplay element is an interesting choice.

This isn't Zelda. It's Skyrim modded to look like Zelda with some Minecraft thrown in.

All sorts of new gameplay stuff. The Eye Pad's scope can be used to mark enemies, Phantom Pain style. Weather affects gameplay: Enemies go to sleep at night, cold can hurt you if you don't dress appropriately, and rain can make slopes slippery and puts out fire. You can find different kinds of arrows in treasure chests. The korok leaf returns. So much interesting stuff.

Oh right. I never got Twilight Princess Wii U, so I'm gonna have to get the Wolf Link Amiibo another way.

Can it be bought separately?

As a sentient train, I am morally against any kind of de-railing.
