What I want To See In The Legend of Zelda Wii U E3 2014 Trailer

The legend of Zelda Wii U

Nintendo has pretty much confirmed that they will officially unveil the brand spanking new Legend of Zelda game for Wii U during E3 2014. I am confident that Zelda Wii U will steal the show, and hypothetically win E3 2014 for the Big N. That is. if Nintendo doesn’t screw up the reveal. I know what you are going to ask me, how the hell can you screw up a Zelda reveal? Well, Nintendo has a habit of screwing up reveals. For starters, we all remember the embarrassing Skyward Sword live demonstration at E3 2010, where interference disrupted the ability of the Wii remote plus. Then we had the botched Wii U re-unveil at E3 2012. And let’s not forget that forgettable Super Mario 3D World Debut trailer, that essentially failed to get fans excited for the game.

I want Nintendo to blow me… away with an epic trailer for Zelda Wii U. I want my jaws to drop, I want saliva dripping down my chin, I want my eyes to burn from the visual eye candy, and I want the opportunity to throw rupees at the computer screen only to see them drop to no effect.

Here is what I want to see in the Legend of Zelda Wii U E3 2014 Trailer.

The Legend of Zelda Wii U

Gorgeous HD Visuals

I am a little less picky about the art style that Mr. Aonuma selects for the new Zelda title. I loved all home consoles visual styles from Wind Wakers Cel shaded look, Twilight Princess Dark, gritty aesthetics and Skyward Swords watercolor palette. Mr Aonuma and his team have a proven track record when it comes to making a beautiful Zelda game, even in limited hardware, and I trust to deliver gorgeous visuals for the next Zelda game. However, having said that, if I had to pick – a realistic Zelda game in the fashion shown in the tech demo shown a couple years back would be swell. I know for a fact, that many forum dwellers, would hop on the Wii U train – if Zelda matched or even surpassed the look of the demo then we are in for a treat.

Go Big or go home!

The Wii U is certainly more capable than the woefully weak Wii.  The Zelda team certainly has more resources and power to play with to make a Zelda game that was not possible previously. By this I mean, a Zelda game with an impressive scale. I would like to see large luscious environments, mind blowing set pieces, colossal bosses, and dungeon designs that go beyond our imagination. The trailer must showcase a true next generation Zelda game, and not just a Zelda game in HD.

Clever GamePad Use

Nintendo hasn’t not been able to sell the perks of the GamePad. In fact, the vast majority of 1St part offerings barely use the GamePad in meaningful ways. However, much like Skyward Sword proved the worth of motion controls – the Legend of Zelda Wii U could be the game that showcases the vision of the GamePad, and perhaps, the game that justifies the existence of the controversial control. If all Nintendo does with the GamePad is reallocating the map and inventory menu to the second screen  during the trailer, then I will be sorely disappointed.

Leave us wanting more

The mark of a good debut trailer, is how it makes the viewer wanting more. This is exactly what I want to the Zelda trailer to do – make me want more. Do you remember Twilight Princess’s debut trailer? I want a trailer in line with this classic E3 moment. A trailer that leaves a powerful and lasting impression, one that gives us a taste of the main course, then cruelly deprives us of this delicious game.
