As covered in the recent IGN article, IGN Advertisement , its time to look at what needs to be done to the Zelda franchise to keep it fresh and on the cutting edge instead of just the same old game we've played before. The article touches on one great point in particular. Nintendo Japan has a disconnect with gamers on this side of the Pacific. Nintendo Japan doesn't make games for westerners, it makes games for Japanese audiences and then translates them for us. The problem is that Nintendo Japan always handles development of new Zelda games with few exceptions. Back when Wind Waker was first unveiled as an untitled Zelda in a teaser trailer, Shigeru Miyamoto was astonished to its reception from westerners. Out here in the west, fans didn't want a 'cartoon' zelda, they wanted a 'real' Zelda. Miyamoto still couldn't grasp this concept, but then again, he probably is unaware that Japan has an anime culture while the U.S. has a live-action culture. Right? Well, let's discuss how the next Zelda should be made to adhere to western standards. Miyamoto-san himself confirmed the development of a new Zelda title at E3 08. Well, let's get it done right. Current topics: Voice Acting To have a truly epic story driven title in this day and age, Zelda needs to hold its breath and jump off. Final Fantasy did it and Zelda needs to follow suit or else it will never catch up. The most important voice has to be LINK. Who should be the voice of Link? (Which voice actor?) Tingle I want Tingle to be in this game... so we can kill him off for good. Have a very short cameo where he has a fitting death. Death to the koo-plah.
