A City-Builder where you have to balance citizens with buildings so you're not spending city income on building maintenance, but all your citizens are seeing their needs serviced, and you can use these services at will and gain rupee profits from the city itself...

The Zelda series doesn't do many different genres, though. Even the side games are usually still adventures. Other than the crossbow training game, I don't remember any that were anything else. So I doubt they'd go all the way to a city manager.

There's crossbow training, tetra's trackers (I think) and Hyrule Warriors.

Beyond that, it's stuck to it's primary niche of adventure.

Hyrule Warriors wasn't even done by Nintendo. It was licensed by Nintendo, but was done by the Dynasty Warriors people, and it's little beyond DW with Zelda characters. And I enjoyed it! I'd love to see other Zelda licensed games out there in different genres, like a Total War game that isn't a mod for Medieval 2, or a Mount and Blade style game in the Zelda universe that isn't a mod, or even a RTS.

So a while back we got an average age for the Links with most of them being either 16 or 12, pre timeskip OOT Link being the youngest at 9, and currently Skyward Sword Link being the oldest at 17.

Do we have any confirmed ages for the Zeldas however. I know that on average, they'd be the same age as Link, but I believe Twilight Link is also 16 but Twilight Zelda was supposed to be a little older wasn't she?

Any word on that?

I thought I heard somewhere that TP Zelda was in her late teens/early 20s, but I don't remember where.

And its basically stated that Bot W Zelda is stated as physically 16 (she actually 116, but retained her youth while she kept herself and Ganon sealed).

At least for me, personally, every other Zelda I feel is around the same age as their respective Link.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

I thought I heard somewhere that TP Zelda was in her late teens/early 20s, but I don't remember where.

I could buy that. She could be 18 to Link's 16. Not too big a gap, but still a bit older than the norm.

And its basically stated that Bot W Zelda is stated as physically 16 (she actually 116, but retained her youth while she kept herself and Ganon sealed).

Well, so is Link on all those counts.

Oh. I actually got that one already. I watched it again and she does say she turns 17 the next day...

RE: Zelenal

I don't mean a super direct follow up, but I imagine stuff like the Yiga clan and Sheikah Magitek will appear in the next Zelda game.

RE: Handsome Rob

It always seem like main characters in Japanese video games are always super young. Supposedly the game developers worry about alienating kids if the main character is too "old."

RE: Rytex

Yes, Hyrule Warriors was done by Koei and unlike the controversial Fire Emblem Warriors, it was well loved by the Zelda fandom.

Interesting factoid is Aonuma actually gave Koei the go to do what they wanted for the game. Though he recommended it be a Dynasty Warriors first gameplay wise.

You want it to be sufficiently different, after all.

Fire Emblem Warriors has a few elements that I'd want to see in a future Hyrule Warriors, particularly your allies being less useless and the more detailed and easily-accessed interface for commanding them.

Mar 15th 2019 at 4:07:57 PM

RE: Durazno

Being able to switch behind allies and a detailed interface was actually added to Hyrule Warriors Legends which came before Fire Emblem Warriors. Hyrule Warriors definitive, having added in the mechanics from Legends, also has it.

FE Warriors' interface, switching, and command feature is all a step up from Legends, though.

It's a shame FE Warriors is so mired in roster controversy; in terms of gameplay mechanics it's better refined than Hyrule Warriors in every regard.

Hopefully if we get a Hyrule Warriors 2, it takes a lot of cues from it.

Still want Groose piloting wooden Power Armor Groosenator Mk. II. Maybe with the Beetle and Gust Bellows built in to rep those Skyward Sword items.

RE: Anomalocaris 20

As someone who has played multiple Warriors including the crossovers, FE: Warriors was very bare bones and several of the things they said would be in the game never got added.

Most of all, the main point of the Warriors crossovers are the selection of playable characters and the (not the sexy kind)fanservice.

With Hyrule Warriors, even the base game referenced multiple Zelda games with items throughout the franchise and designs taken from various games. With Fire Emblem Warriors, not only did they stick to three games, with one barely having any role, but the PR for the game was handled very poorly. With the representatives for the game continually making controversial statements.

I did have the interface from the Definitive Edition in mind. It's clunky and irritating, and the weird resolution of the map makes it hard to pinpoint particular enemies to target. Lots of room for improvement!

RE: Anomalocaris 20

I'm aware. The meat of Warriors game are the movesets and Fire Emblem Warriors had a small selection of movesets, even compared to Hyrule Warriors without the free DLC.

My point, though, was that hopefully Hyrule Warriors 2 will take stuff from it, like the more transparent A-rank conditions and recommended levels, allies' kills counting for your total, less bothersome Giant Bosses, sensible defensive badges, and much better ally commanding. Among other minor tweaks.

I'd like the officer mode from the Empires series and the Gundam crossovers to be added, I think Zelda's monsters are popular enough for it to work.
